Participant testimonials

Saranen’s Software Academy program was rightly structured with a very detail oriented guided path. It allowed someone like me who had a long break to get back to the industry in a fairly short period of time. In my opinion the program will benefit both experienced job seekers as well as someone who is looking to get to the technology industry without any prior experience.
