A Look Back on our Accelerated Learning Program

Today is the last day of the .NET Accelerated Learning Program before our class of 14 students graduate from our program. We are having speakers come in for Inspire Day to speak to them and get them even more excited about the coding field. We took a look back on their 9-week journey and asked them a few questions about their experience.

What were you looking forward to the most when you began the program?

“When I finally made the decision to join this .NET pilot group, I was most excited about all of the many paths I could take once I learned a foundation from which to start.”

— Angie Washburn

“When I began the ALP, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was ready to try it all!”

— Kenneth Oden

“Learning enough about coding and working in software development to be a competent employee in a small tech company.”

— Deon Seifert

“A personal goal of mine for several years has been to make my own website, and during the first three weeks I was able to bring that to life by creating my own portfolio site.”

— Bobbie LaFollette

“What I looked forward to most before I started was learning all the advanced things I didn’t know. There was a lot I didn’t know but I’m glad to say I learned everything I was expecting to and more.”

— Nick Lawson

Tell us the most important thing you learned here.

“I am looking forward to applying the skills I’ve learned throughout the program in my future career”

— Kyle Ries

“The program has been great and I’m hoping to be job ready by the end of it!”

— Kenneth Oden

“What I am most looking forward to after graduation is getting a job and making a name for myself. I would love to build my own company and be remembered for an amazing app.”

— Nick Lawson

“Dealing with bugs or issues whenever they come up has been fun. I had great instructors and classmates that could help me through most problems with their knowledge and own experiences.  They also were able to point me to many different sites and tools that have helped me figure most anything out. I know these bugs/issues will continue to pop up throughout my career but I now embrace each one as its own challenge because I know I will eventually figure it out.”

— Jordan Willis

“The most important thing I’ve learned is that becoming a coder is a mix of becoming a life-long learner and connecting with other individuals.”

— Angie Washburn

“The most important thing I learned here was how to read certain material such as stack overflow to make finding the answer to my problem easier.”

— Michael Fiore

“You will never know everything, but that’s okay.”

— Deon Seifert

What kept you motivated during the times you wanted to give up?

“During these times, I would remind myself that nothing worthwhile is ever easy.”

— Bobbie LaFollette

“The faith that the instructors and staff had in me, even when I felt I couldn’t do it.”

— Deon Seifert

“I knew I wanted to become a professional coder, but at times I couldn’t see myself there; it was the staff that motivated me and kept my head on straight. Without them, I probably would have quit. Now everything is going very well.”

— Michael Fiore

“I really liked the team atmosphere. We worked together as a class with the instructors to not only learn but solve coding problems. I knew no matter the problem someone would encourage me to keep going or show me how they had gotten through a similar experience. Even if they had no idea how to fix my issue, just being able to talk it through with them helped me through so many different tough times.”

— Jordan Willis

What are you looking forward to the most after you graduate?

“I am most looking forward to further developing my coding skills and learning even more after graduation.”

— Fred Miles

“I am really looking forward to challenging myself in the future with this and helping create web applications and combining that with my education at Butler will be a fantastic combination.”

— Joe Blommel

“I am looking forward to applying the skills I’ve learned throughout the program in my future career”

— Kyle Ries

“The program has been great and I’m hoping to be job ready by the end of it!”

— Kenneth Oden

“What I am most looking forward to after graduation is getting a job and making a name for myself. I would love to build my own company and be remembered for an amazing app.”

— Nick Lawson

Most of our students came in knowing little to no coding and are now graduating ready to be interns or placed in a job. We are proud of them and all of their future accomplishments. Go Code!
