Gain the Competitive Edge:


The LearningFuze Team

We believe that to operate as an effective developer bootcamp, the student-teacher ratio must be optimal and much smaller than your traditional classroom. Coding is a challenging undertaking that requires knowledgeable and energetic instructors to be available one-on-one. That’s why we invest in maintaining an excellent student-to-teacher ratio for our program!

About Me: Software has always been a draw for me, whether it was a passion for video games at a young age; my first forays into programming TI graphing calculators in middle schools; learning about various programming languages in high school and community college; using Mathematica, C/C++, Fortran, and Python while working on my Physics BA for homework assignments and research projects; or writing Crystal Reports against an ERP system's T-SQL database to greatly reduce the amount of manual data analysis for Procurement and Inventory Management. It wasn't until 2015 when I seriously consider a career in software engineering, but once started nothing could pull me away from it.

Cody Miller

Prep-Class Lead Instructor | Director
Web Development Instructor

Areas of Focus: Core Javascript, React, Redux, CSS, HTML.

About Me: Before I became a web developer, I worked as a Special Education teacher for ten years, so I think it's safe to say that I've always had a passion for teaching. I've often been described as chipper, boisterous, and louder than any human being has a right to be, which is all true. I chose to go into web development because I love to think analytically, solve problems, and build things from scratch.

Part Time Program Admin | Instructor

Areas of Focus: Core Javascript, React, Redux, CSS, HTML, jQuery, bootstrap 3 & 4.

About Me: Ever since my first 286x IBM clone in the early 90s, I was in love with computers and figuring out what made them work. I quickly developed an intense passion for them and although my path of employment was varied, I never was far from technology, and computers played a continuous role in my life. When the chance to do programming and teaching full time revealed itself, I jumped for it and never looked back!
