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!

Remote Web Development | Prep-Class Instructor
Part Time Program Admin

Areas of Focus: Core Javascript, React, NodeJS, Postgres, CSS, HTML, bootstrap 5.

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!

Areas of Focus: Data Structures Lead Instructor, Final Project Management, Core Logic, Advanced Programming & Computer Science Concepts, Functional Programming, Software Architecture, Relational Databases, User Experience, Specializing in Technologies: JS, PHP, MySQL, PostgreSQL, NodeJS, Git, Linux, Bash, WSL

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.

Jenna Bowman

Full Time Data Science Instructor

Areas of Focus: Python, Pandas, Numpy, Scipy, Sklearn, Matplotlib, Seaborn, Machine Learning, Classification, Regression, Data Analytics, & Admissions

About Me: Working with computers and solving real-world analytical problems has been a passion of mine since childhood. Before I pursued Data Science, I achieved a BS in Biology & Environmental Studies from Swarthmore College. There I furthered my coding knowledge in Python and R through experience in the Marine Science field, working to determine the detrimental effects of climate change on ocean life. In addition to Python and R, I specialize in Java, Javascript, HTML, and CSS which allows me to implement Data Science projects and bring them to life. I chose to pursue teaching Data Science to share my passions and perspectives with students hoping to pursue jobs in the field. And I've loved every second of it!

Our Learning Space and our Program

We have dedicated learning space that is focused on our students being able to code with little distraction or interference. It is a dedicated space on the second floor of an office building near the Irvine Spectrum – the heart of the Orange County tech world! LearningFuze is a program focused on the “skill-driven model” (i.e. learn by doing) and our site is designed with that in mind.
