I am an experienced engineering professisonal and Kal Academy helped me get back to the tech world after a break. I took the big data class and it is a big picture overview type class for anyone curious about data engineering and big data technologies. She totally understands that different students have different goals in the class room ranging from curiosity to immediate job needs and helps accordingly. While I landed a job in backend which was always my specialty, I am thankful for the resume and career consulting help Kal Academy provides that helps network  with companies. I highly recommend Kal Academy to anyone who needs help at any level breaking into or furthering their interests in the tech world.To me personally, the biggest takeaway was getting in touch and getting updated with tech and broadening my exposure. I found Kal easy to engage with in class and very proficient in what she does.

Great experience at Kal Academy. When I first started taking classes at Kal, I came with the intention to learn about Big Data. Big Data seemed to be a trending topic at tech companies & I was curious to learn about this area. Right after taking a Data Science class, I soon realized that I could do so much more so I decided to pursue the AI/Software Engineering full deep stack program. I am incredibly thankful to Kal for the education I gained. While the programs are fast paced, I learned more than I could imagine, and after several months of searching for a role in the tech industry, I was finally able to get hired by a top tech company. Whether you are interested in any of the programs solely for the purpose of learning or transitioning into the current tech market for a job, I highly recommend considering the opportunities Kal has to offer. As someone that worked full time, this was a tremendous opportunity I could not miss.
