Technical Review

"I went through the technical interview, where I connected with one of the instructors online and did a little bit of code navigation and code review, to see what I knew about coding in general, and if I needed to learn the super basics or if I was someone who could hit the ground running."

Monetary Considerations

"The monetary commitment was a big factor. But once I saw the program at Galvanize and everything it was going to involve, that gave me the reassurance that if I went into it with my all, I would reap the benefits. At that point, the monetary costs were negligible to me, because I knew the end rewards would be greater than my concerns at the beginning."

Time Commitment

"I remained employed at the University and telecommuted throughout the six month program. It was really intense, but it was definitely worth it in the end."

Let’s talk through what’s holding you back, and how Galvanize can help you make the leap!
