gSchool offered me real world experience which is more than what my college experience offered. Having hands on instructors was very important.

Pivotal Labs emphasizes good engineering practices. They put effort into quality code and process vs. just getting it done.

Pivotal guided me while encouraging me to lead. I gained momentum building applications and confidence to take control and take chances. As a developer who never programmed before gSchool, this is incredible. They taught me how to turn an idea into well-thought out, tested code.

gSchool gave me the awareness of what to learn and absorb it quickly. They pushed me to keep learning.
