"Roots Technology is a necessary program, in my opinion, because it teaches a skill that will help average folks to bridge the gap into entering the tech industry. The modules are easy to follow, and if you don't understand, you can easily reach out to TJ."

"Being in ROOTs Technology has been a pleasant experience so far. The course is concise and digestible, leaving enough time for you to check out any supplemental information provided at your own pace. Tj and the support team was able to answer any questions concerns I had in a timely matter. Overall, can't wait to start the other modules the course offers"

"Joining the program has been one of the most rewarding academic experiences for me. It truly is beginner-friendly in the approach - with a sensible build-up from foundational HTML/CSS to JavaScript/React JS, and a project-oriented flow. You gain the knowledge necessary to develop a portfolio of work and understand what you need to research more. Aside from this, the main takeaways are the confidence to tackle complex topics and the comprehension for these topics - which gave me a clearer idea of the field as a whole. I would recommend it for anyone who wants to get into coding, looking for an affordable and effective program, but isn't sure where exactly to start."

"So far I've been working off and on with ROOTs Technology for about a month and have already learned the basics of a pretty simple webpage. It is a lot of information, but TJ is always available and helpful with the questions I have. I like the fact that I no longer feel intimidated by this "BIG" thing called coding, and that in my own mind I can honestly say that I'm excited to learn more."

- Sunni W. (ROOTs Technology Student)

"So far my experience with ROOTs Technology has been great. As the ability to go at my own pace has really helped me along my journey learning to code.
Tj has been very responsive with feedback on both my practice problems as well as how I present my solutions. This has helped me to calm down and really work to understand how my code works when presenting."

"My experience with ROOTs Technology so far has been absolutely great. The curriculum is structured in a way where you learn new material but you also get a chance to build projects using that knowledge that you picked up which is my favorite part. I also get feedback on my work which is something I look forward to to help me get better as a developer. I've had a great experience so far with ROOTs and I am looking forward to the Career Prep Module."

"I started my journey in tech at over 40 years old, and after a career in another field. I was looking to change fields, I didn't have any experience coding, and I needed a thorough, powerful, affordable program that I could move through at my own pace. After some research, and exploration of what resources would best serve me, I found the ROOTs Technology Coding and Career Prep Program. I started the program immediately, and dove in head - first .
I really appreciated the availability of the staff to mentor me and answer any questions that I had, and the curriculum was clear and thorough. I am still working my way through the program, but while enrolled in the program, after only three months, I had LANDED A JOB IN TECH. As I write this, I'm working as a Web Developer, and continuing to progress through the curriculum, which continues to serve me to further my professional development. At my job, I now get to utilize the skills I'm learning in the curriculum, and get to see the concepts present themselves in real -world applications on a daily basis.
I can't say enough good things about ROOTs Technology Coding and Career Prep Program!!"

"The modules from the program have been incredibly helpful in practicing code and building a portfolio. The tasks are simple enough to understand but still yield tangible development in your skills by allowing you to figure out your own path to the solution, exposing you to numerous concepts as you work, and receiving feedback from Tj and the teaching assistants. The program has been a great way to start when I was previously overwhelmed by the amount of resources for coding online."

- Erika M. (ROOTs Technology Student)

"I can honestly say I've enjoyed my ROOTS Technology experience. I love how patient Tj is to help you with a problem. Tj has a way to communicate and breakdown a problem to your level of understanding, making it simple but at the same time giving you technical fundamentals. I would recommend ROOTs to anybody."

- Shelvy M. (ROOTs Technology Student)

"This program is great for those who want to get into the habit of seeing code daily. Its pace and content fit well into a full day's schedule where I still felt the progress whether I spent 4 hours or 7 hours. The way in which the concepts are presented are thorough and challenging to a beginner, and avoid being too daunting to tackle. Making coding a natural and integral part of your day would be ideal to pursuing it long-term; and I would find myself wanting to spend extra time learning more."

- Erika M. (ROOTs Technology Student)

"I learned git while doing this course because there is exceptional instruction in the course portal to follow along with and if I don't understand I can easily get in contact with TJ and he'll break it down."

"I have been really been enjoying my time with ROOTs Technology. I had zero experience in code and have learned so much. Tj is really a great teacher. He is not only quick to listen and to teach. He has also gone above and beyond with his understanding and patience dealing with someone completely new like me. He is able to take something that is difficult and break it down into manageable chunks. He is also not afraid to say that he is learning to be an even better teacher as well. That spoke volumes to me. i know some people teach themselves code but having experienced Roots firsthand i can honestly say im glad i went this route."

"I'm so grateful for everything this program and TJ have done for helping me along this journey to become a software developer. I came in to this program with basically no experience other than basic HTML knowledge, but that's about it.
I benefited heavily from having a set curriculum to work through without having to come up with everything as I go. The way it's structured with projects throughout, instead of just tutorial after tutorial, really makes it so you're actually putting this knew knowledge to practice. This makes everything sink in so much faster, and you retain so much this way.
TJ is always there to help you with problems or blockers you may have, wether it be a question over email or a video study session. It's night and day how much more confident in my development skills I am from when I started this program a few months back. I don't think there's anyway I could've made this much progress without this program, I'm so happy that i decided to take this course.
If you're motivated to develop the skills to start a career in software development, don't hesitate. This course is perfect for anyone who will put in the work to make it happen!"

"I have been immensely satisfied with my experience with the ROOTs Technology Coding and Career Prep Program. The curriculum is very well designed, with each skill building upon previous skills, and leading to the next skill. I have been able to get assistance any time that I have needed, and yet through the teaching and mentorship, I have also grown a great deal in my ability to find the answers that I need, which has been very helpful. I continue to learn and grow, and yet I have learned so much that I have landed a job in tech while STILL COMPLETING THE PROGRAM! I can't recommend the program highly enough! Thank you, TJ!"

- Barry W. (ROOTs Technology Student)

"I am very happy that I chose to enter the ROOTs Technology program. From the projects to the mentorship is not like anything else. The program forces you to learn things that you will do everyday as a software engineer!"

- Obi O. (ROOTs Technology Student)

"I can say with full certainty, that this program provided me with the necessary tools I needed to learn how to code and to learn how to grasp new technologies and implement them when building web applications. I started from having basically zero knowledge or experience on how to code, to being able to build several web applications on my own. I am so satisfied with the structure of this program and with all the material that it covered. I know I still have to spend some time getting ready for the job interviews, but this program gave me the confidence and assurance that it is just a matter of time before I get a job.

Being able to do all the things that I was able to do in this program, makes me feel that the sky is the limit. I remember that every time I was struggling to make something work when building my projects along the course, it was only a matter of time before I ended up solving the problems and most importantly, understanding how and why they got solved. It was a very challenging experience, no doubt about it, but it is definitely doable if the time and effort is put onto it. If I had to start this learning to code journey all over again, I wouldn't hesitate in choosing this program.

For a person like me, with little to no coding experience before heading into this program, having a structured course and a mentor that can guide me along the way is vital. I personally would have not been able to do and achieve all that I did on this program on my own. I undoubtedly recommend this program to whomever is in a similar position as I was before starting it, and to anyone who really wishes and is determined to learn how to code."

"After completing my first module, I am extremely pleased with this product. I am learning a lot and TJ is an excellent mentor. He is very patient and has an organized system in place for the novice learner. I appreciate the direct feedback that is customized according to my success and areas of improvement. We are not in a community forum trying to figure things out from others students. I appreciate this approach as I have limited time. Also, the module is broken down into reasonably sized lessons as to not overwhelm you and allows for you to move at a very comfortable pace. I am glad I did not try to self-teach or pay thousands of dollars for a boot camp. So far, I think I have made a great decision to learn coding skills for my recent change in career paths."

- Erika B. (ROOTs Technology Student)

"I really love ROOTs Technology. They have made learning how to code super easy and affordable. I love that they provide a curriculum to follow and a mentor, which was crucial for me.

"I'm having a great experience with ROOTs so far. They teach you exactly what you'll need to know to become a developer, so you're not wasting time trying to figure out what you need to learn. I was jumping around multiple websites and tutorials trying to figure out the best path to take, and this has saved me so much time. Having someone there to guide you is incredibly helpful too."

- Chad S. (ROOTs Technology Student)

"I'm so happy that I started this journey on becoming a developer. The best investment I've made so far, to be honest. I had no knowledge of web development and within a couple of weeks, I've learned so much about the basics of HTML/CSS. My mentor Tj is always available to take the time and guide me through any questions or problems that I have pertaining to the curriculum. To anyone who is reluctant or afraid to make the leap, just go for it...it is definitely worth it."

"My javascript skills have really improved since starting my coding journey over at Roots Technology. They were non existent before but after working through some javascript problems my confidence level is much higher than it was before. It makes me feel much more like I am able to become a software developer. The challenging and rewarding part was the just getting through this section. It was more difficult for me than the earlier sections. Roots really makes you feel like this is attainable. Its like you are already a junior developer at a company and you have a team mate/mentor that is helping you learn everything and correct you when you make mistakes. The way the curriculum is structured definitely builds and builds and make the retention and understanding so much better."

- Jeffrey B. (ROOTs Technology Student)
