I attended the full-time code immersion course. Before I even attended the first class, the staff was there to help answer any questions or concerns I had. It’s been a long time since I’ve stepped foot into the classroom setting, so I was a little bit nervous about starting over. But the instructor and teacher’s assistant set up a great environment so you felt like you can slow the pace down at any moment. The course was very frustrating at times, but very rewarding once I figured out things through the trial and error process. If I still had problems, they had office hours to help go further in-depth of what I needed. A couple of times a week they would have speakers and/or tours set up to help start our networking process. I definitely would recommend anyone who is thinking about going into this field to look into joining the TTS community.
I attended the full time code immersion program at Tech Talent South. My instructor was exceptional and spoke in plain language for my non developer mind! Each class was intentional and organized with an extremely high level of professionalism. Beyond the course itself, I loved the community atmosphere that is created and upheld by the staff and alumni. I had so many opportunities to meet with potential employers as well as network with other new developers. To me, this type of community allows me to stay connected and make the most of my course! FIVE STARS!!
I wanted to take the time to relay my experience(s) with Tech Talent South. I found out about the Charlotte chapter of TTS through a friend and strongly disliked the current career path I was on so I decided to take the plunge. I ended up enrolling in the full-time code immersion class and I absolutely loved it. The class is set up in order for you to get your feet wet and to learn the basics in both front-end and back-end web development. Although I definitely got a lot out of the class, it was not easy. You have to have the mindset that you are going to dedicate yourself to learning all you can during the eight week program. As in life, the more you put into it, the more you will gain from it and you can really gain a lot. When you finish, you will have a solid foundation of knowledge of Ruby on Rails, HTML, CSS, and so much more. Tech Talent South also offers a variety of other classes including the Big Data class. As our society continually evolves and our reliance on technology continues to increase, the need to analyze the data will be extremely important and the Big Data class introduces you to the fundamentals and ideas that will help start you on the path to learning more about data. If you are looking to solidify a role in the tech community, then starting with Tech Talent South is the way to go. The instructors and the staff are great (especially in the Charlotte area) and I don't feel like you will regret the opportunity that you will create by joining the TTS community.
I went from next-to-nothing computer knowledge, to building web applications! The instructors or terrific, and the network is priceless. TTS will follow up and stay connected with you post-class. You don't have to know anything about the tech-industry, but if you sign up and take the course TTS will partner with you because they want to see you succeed. It just takes effort on your part to do the work. One of the most valuable things about TTS is the network: they will get you started building your network. As an entry-level developer, it's easy for your resume to get lost in the pile. But if you get your face out their and network, job offers will come easily.
