Just weeks after completing the 12-week course, I am now employed in Seattle, and I can say without a doubt that Kal's course was exactly what I needed to improve my problem-solving and programming skills. We also had a few opportunities to engage in mock interviews, which were great for getting comfortable solving code on the whiteboard with an interviewer and offered a unique opportunity for feedback from real engineers ...
I've attended several courses at Akshayya’s Kal Academy. All of them were very well structured and extremely useful for my professional growth. Kal has an amazing gift to break down a complicated concept and explain it in a way that easily can be understood. I also feel that it's not just a school, it's more than that. Everyone at Kal Academy sincerely cares about you, your progress, and they are doing their best to help you to succeed. I recently got a job as a software developer and it happened just because I discovered Kal Academy!...
Kal is not only an exceptional instructor but also a good mentor and amazing role model. I took the Algorithms and Data Structures class to prepare for my tech interview and landed my job after a 3.5 year break for taking care of my family ...
I'm currently enrolled in Kal's Algorithms and Data Structures class and it's one of the things I look forward to every week. Kal is a phenomenal teacher and has a way of explaining and presenting concepts so that it quickly makes sense and is also very engaging. I've gone over this topic several times in person and she's easily the best teacher I've ever had. Every week she has something new and fascinating to bring to the table - like why is a string immutable? How does a dictionary actually work under the hood? ...
I attended the Web development full-stack boot camp recently. Kal is an awesome mentor and teacher. The hands-on approach worked amazingly for me. Instead of just slides and presentations, coding along in the classroom is very helpful. I was trying to study on my own and a practical approach was missing. That is when I enrolled here. The environment is very friendly and the curriculum covers pretty much everything I needed for a ramp-up. One of the best decisions I ever made was to join! ...
Absolutely love this place! Kal goes above and beyond for her students. She's always happy to answer a question or go over something again. I took her Data Structures & Algorithms course, which gave me the primer I needed for my whiteboarding interviews. Akshayya’s Kal Academy is great for people who are looking to advance their coding, problem solving and critical thinking skills. To get the most out of the courses, I definitely recommend allocating enough time for homework (which can be significant sometimes). Kal expects a lot from her students, but it's worth it because her method really helps you understand the concepts!...
If you came here to check on how legit this place is -- Stop. Sign up for a class. Don't walk, run!!! I checked out many of Seattle's countless coding schools and I even attended an actual bootcamp. Hands down, Akshayya’s Kal Academy was my favorite. I had supplemented my learning with books, free online algorithm practice, etc., yet no single learning source compared to the invaluable explanations that I received from Kal. She explains what happens under the hood and how to think in a way that encompasses all programming languages. I credit Kal for giving me confidence and a fundamental understanding of algorithms. I believe she played a big role in my earning a spot in the Microsoft LEAP program! ...
I signed up for the Data Structures and Algorithms class to prepare for technical interviews, and the knowledge I gained from the class gave me the confidence I needed to succeed. I ended up getting a software engineering internship at a company I really wanted to work for. Kal’s classes and her passion for what she does are making me go back for more! I am currently signed up for 3 classes and I look forward to them every week ...
Akshayya’s Kal Academy is Seattle Tech community's best-kept secret.
