"I found a job doing what I love and I would highly recommend this to people who are equally as passionate about technology."

− Anthony Corso

"I would not have gotten this much individualized attention if I had gone to one of the larger bootcamps."

− Eden Full

"Everywhere I go people are floored that I have only been coding 12 weeks."

− Colin Detweiller

"It is a great learning environment, great support after hours and after you have completed the course, and above all, it will challenge you to become the best programmer you can be."

− Douglas Lecker

"If you have the potential to grasp this material AND you put in some serious hard work, you will come out of this program with a solid foundation in ASP.NET C# programming."

− Kevin Djordjevic

"12 weeks ago, I didn't know the first thing about software development. This morning, I accepted a job offer from a company that wants me to be a software engineer. I spent the rest of my morning politely declining three other job offers I received. The guild works. During your time here, you will be trained as a full stack developer."

− Brian Kurr

"Excellent training program and community! Coming in, I had some prior background in development, having studied Java, C++, and VB.NET back in high school, but that was almost a decade ago. Yesterday, eleven and a half weeks later, a few days before the completion of the program, I just received and accepted an offer from my top pick at the top end of what I was looking for!"

− Colin Purvis

"The guild gave me all the tools I needed to build an app from the ground up. If desired, one could easily continue on their own building a few apps or some sort of business with the right kind of backing. They showed how easy it is to grab tools online and integrate them into your programs. "
