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!
Areas of Focus: Strategic Planning; Software Excellence; Software Process Improvement; Agile Development; Training & Development; Software System Architecture; R&D & Innovation; Personnel Management; Team Building & Leadership; Object-Oriented Design; Scalable Systems; Web & Mobile Development
About Me: I have a passion to instruct people working to start a new career in software development. Using my extensive experience developing software, leading teams, and teaching at Google, I teach full stack development to beginning and aspiring developers. I am an accomplished engineering executive with extensive experience in overseeing and directing engineering teams and activities, ensuring alignment with organizational objectives for both start-up and established organizations. My expertise is in developing and executing technical and product strategic plans; managing and directing software engineers, from small teams to large, multi-project departments; implementing and improving engineering practices; and delivering technical guidance to engineering teams and senior leaders. I have worked in a broad array of software areas, including applications, client-server, Web server, and B2B integration; and in a number of software industries such as analytics, advertising, e-mail, online content delivery, children's education, and dental healthcare.
About Me: I have been a Full Time instructor with LearningFuze since 2018. In that time I have had the amazing opportunity to teach hundreds of students and watch them get their first Jobs in programming and start their careers. There is no better feeling that watching someone actively build their dreams before your eyes, and that is something that brings me so much joy! In addition, I am currently studying for my CS degree at Fort Hays State University.
About Me: Since a young age I have had a love for anything that involves computers and technology. That passion has only grown with time which led to my first job as a computer technician, where I integrated computer systems & servers. Ultimately this led me to discovering the world of computer programming with an immense desire to pursue a career within it!.

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.
Area of Focus: Developer on internal projects, Resource Creation, Instructor, Developer Info: JS, HTML, CSS, PHP, Specialize in ReactJS, NodeJS, Build Tools (Webpack, babel, npm), and Dev Ops.
About Me: I've been drawn to programming ever since I knew it existed. Programming is like solving a puzzle that constantly changes and even though I've been coding for over 8 years I still get a rush every time I solve a problem. Being an instructor at LearningFuze has afforded me the opportunity spread the excitement I find in programming to 100s of students.
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.
Areas of Focus: Amazon Web Services, TypeScript, NodeJS, React, MaterialUI, Git, IaC.
About Me: I have 11+ years experience working in IT with 3 years working as a 2x AWS certified software engineer. I have a BS in Business Administration - Information Systems from Biola University and an MS in Organizational Psychology from Vanguard University. I've always loved technology - building my a PC with my first paycheck, modding and tinkering with old video game consoles, cameras, or anything else I could get my hands on. But above all, I find the greatest joy in helping people find their “light bulb” moment. Being a software developer is one of the most creative things I've ever done, and I love sharing this passion with others!
Areas of Focus: I have been a UI/UX Designer for over 6 years, working with artificial intelligence, media, fashion, and marketing companies.
About Me: Years ago I worked as a fashion designer, but realized I wanted a change. While working at a fashion company, I was asked to take on additional web design tasks, and noticed I loved it even more. This led me down a path of freelancing as a UX designer, and eventually landing multiple big-name clients in the tech arena. I was able to use my visual design skills as a strength, while building years of expertise in UX Research and Interaction Design. In my free time I also draw, learn languages, and connect with my family's heritage through a music-focused Youtube channel.

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.
