Our immersive course emphasizes the Python coding language, a backend language. We chose to focus on Python due to its speed and analytical capabilities, yet, simplicity. Python developers are sought out by companies including Google, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, BuzzFeed, and more. Many of which work with us to shape our curriculum.
The program is composed of three phases.
- Phase 1: four-week intensive learning experience dedicated to Python backend fundamentals.
- Phase 2: four weeks focused on Python frontend design and implementation
- Phase 3: six weeks developing two fullstack applications with project focuses available including data science, FinTech, and blockchain
The program facilitates an environment for teamwork and collaboration. Students create numerous projects which are part of a portfolio that they showcase to potential employers. Some students have the opportunity to work on projects to aid companies in the real world. Sample past projects include:
- MoneyMusic: music recommendation enginer which creates playlists based an a user’s Spotify library
- Botserver: allows businesses to interact with their community via artificial intelligence chatbots
- Medical Map: Proof of Concept for real MedTech startup
- PolitiPic: Predicts voter outcomes using facial recognition.
Our optional tracks allow students to focus on a desired industry through project work and industry mentors. These students also take our Python fullstack core technology curriculum.
With the Python being one of the most popular languages in the data sciences, students may choose a data science focus during the program. In addition to the core technology curriculum, students will dig deeper into topics such as data science libraries, machine learning, data acquisition, data analysis and more. Many go into roles such as data analyst, data engineer and data scientist upon completion of the course.
In our most popular industry track, students apply programming to the financial industry in order to graduate with the ability to build financial applications. Students work with APIs widely used in the financial industry. Ares of FinTech include: payments, insurance (InsurTech), robo-advisory, regulatory tech (RegTech) and more. Sample past student projects include:
- FlexInvest: crowdfunds Wall Street investments
- MarketTracker: graphs stock prices related to tweets
- Jade Lizard: options strategy to maximize returns
Throughout the program, our career services team works closely with students to help place them at a top company upon graduation. Please see Outcomes for details.

After, graduating from college, I felt that I didn’t have the hands on experience that a lot of companies are seeking. Byte Academy not only gave me the full stack development skills; they also gave me the finance education that allowed me to find and thrive in the FinTech industry. Upon leaving the bootcamp I found a position as an python developer in a startup company, called Enso Financial in the fintech industry. After, the company saw a successful acquisition, I left the company to work at one of the world's leading investing banks JPMorgan Chase & Co. For anyone thinking about learning to code, they should learn the basic and see if they truly enjoy it. And know that programming isn’t a solo act, it takes a team. Thats why learning programming in a group setting works the best. While attending byte I did not only learn to program but also build friendships that followed me through out my career dis far.
I can't say enough good things about Byte Academy. From the admissions, to the instructors, and everywhere in between this is a great bootcamp. The environment is very relaxed, while also maintaining a professional atmoshphere. I learned enough to build full stack apps, and if I am unsure of something, I now have the know-how to research and learn something new. I would recommend Byte Academy to anyone, and ecourage anyone who is on the fence, to go ahead and enroll!
I come from a computer science background. I graduated college in December 2015 and joined Byte in January 2016. I wanted to be a stronger developer so i wanted to join a boot camp. I was pretty skeptical of where I wanted to go, and I remember reading the reviews on this site, and becoming more skeptical, not knowing if Byte would be a great experience. However, because I wanted to learn python/django I went with it and joined byte. Jeff was my instructor for the three phases; he was a very helpful and great person along with all the other instructors at Byte. Byte is probably the best choice I’ve made in my life so far. It was much better than just having a degree in computer science. If you are thinking of join Byte I suggest you come in and just talk to some of the students that are in the later phases. Don’t even bother with speaking to the heads of Byte. Speak to the students and find out for yourself. I graduated Byte in April 2016, and I am so glad I chose byte and worked with a language like Python. Facts: -The curriculum is pretty hard but manageable, also there are ways to catch up if you slack off. -The space is not the biggest They do have lots of monitors and tables Instructors are very helpful. They all are willing to help you with a problem until you understand completely They are open 24/7 so you are able to come in and code weekends or late night ( I really love that about them) There are many other small features, like presentations, which help you prepare for the job world. You will be in mid down, lots of food places, great view. They have big name companies (Bloomberg, Ibm...) that actively take resumes of graduates from Byte. very helpful with resumes, cover letters, and preparing for interviews.
“Byte Academy became a bridge towards my career in programming. A very fast-paced, challenging program was just what I needed to learn coding. In my opinion the biggest advantage is that it teaches Python! My relationship with BA continues past my graduation and I am very happy I chose Byte!"
