Michael was a huge factor in my success with starting a new career. He offered a wealth of wisdom to facilitate my learning and comprehension of coding. Rather than giving answers to “just get through it”, Michael provided insight into the problem-solving process. I felt very confident and well-prepared upon completion of the course and I credit a lot of that to the emphasis on realistic tasks and focus on comprehension vs. completion.
I was a former student of Michael’s and appreciated his straightforward and practical take on teaching others how to code. He offered a lot of great insight throughout my time at school and as I got to know him over time, was able to see his passion for the craft, education space, and semicolon usage (among other things). I also like that Michael is opinionated but was willing to dialogue with me and others about our ideas while backing up his assertions with reason.
Michael was a big mentor of mine while I was starting a new career as a software engineer. He is not only great at teaching you the frameworks in the curriculum but more importantly, teaching you the right way to learn and become self-reliant. His tutelage will set you up for success to have a long career.
To anyone wanting to make a change in their life and gain the skills needed to be apart of a growing and forever evolving industry. I guarantee Michael will guide you in the right direction… It’s because of his guidance and teaching methods that I’m able to be successful and overcome obstacles as a Jr Software Engineer. It won’t be easy but it will definitely be worth it!
Michael has a passion for teaching others how to code. You could tell he really loved teaching the subject and was very patient. He went above and beyond what you expect from any teacher and I highly recommend signing up for one of his classes, he is extremely skilled.
Michael was an instructor at the code school that originally got me into software development and jump-started my career path. He is extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions I brought to the table. Unlike others, he wouldn’t just guide you to the solution to your problem. Instead, he would respond with intelligent questions that would be able to lead you to your answer. This process has helped me tremendously with future problems and questions that I have had in a way that now I can ask myself those questions and ultimately lead myself to a solution. I’m grateful to of had the chance to be taught by him and learn how to solve difficult issues that will benefit me for the rest of my coding career.
Michael is a brilliant individual who I learned a great deal from. I think his knowledge paired with his thirst to teach others is an unbelievable combo. I have no doubt Michael is going to do great things in his next endeavors and anyone fortunate enough to work/learn alongside Michael should be grateful for the amazing opportunity they have in front of them. Best of luck in your next adventures Michael, keep pumping out quality developers and changing lives!
Michael has a great teaching style! Gives you the information you need to figure it out on your own instead of just feeding you the answers to your questions.

Studying and coding under Michael’s direction was a great experience. You quickly learn through his training and through your own job search that to become a coder requires a commitment to lifelong learning. In his intense bootcamp you get a firm grasp of the MERN stack in a simulated work environment, but more importantly, you learn how to continue the learning process independently after graduation. This invaluable skill will provide you the confidence to traverse an ever-changing tech industry.
Working with and learning from Michael was a great experience for me. He is extremely knowledgeable, always willing to help, and has a knack for reading students/clients to know how to best teach them. I feel that Michael went out of his way to help me in my career transition and advanced learning above and beyond the scope of the course. He was encouraging and supportive during a stressful time. I consider myself lucky to have had the opportunity to interact with and learn from Michael.
