Student Success Stories

Summer Richards

Before: Sales Manager
After: Jr. Developer
For: Panera

I walked into Savvy Coders thinking I was making the worst mistake of my life, because I didn’t have any knowledge of computer programming.

I walked out with lots of comprehension skills, confidence and hunger to learn more. I am now a UI developer for Panera Bread Headquarters. Savvy Coders kicked off the domino effect leading to my future career.

    For: Intellectual Property Software Solutions

    After taking my first online course on JavaScript, I knew I wanted to learn more but believed it would be beneficial to continue learning in a classroom environment.

    Now I am the Customer Care Specialist for the software team at an IP management company. The Savvy Coder's class was instrumental in bringing about this opportunity for me. The skills I learned and the dedication required to complete the course allowed me to stand out as a candidate for my new position.
