“Part of the programming is learning how to interview and talk with people, which is challenging for most computer programmers. Revature provides a place to learn how to speak with technologists and create a rapport.” - Frank Emmert, Purdue University

“I know I wouldn't have gotten this position if it hadn't been for Revature.” - Yasmine Sadid, Kent State University (now working at Capital One)

“Revature truly has been in a once in a lifetime opportunity. During my time here I have been learning the stack from front to back, particularly in Java as well as automation frameworks like Cucumber which I have no doubt will prove invaluable at any company.” - Braden Ripple, Utah State (now working as a software engineer for Walmart)

“The industry is evolving quickly and my biggest fear was I wasn’t going to be able to get a job. Revature came through…all I needed was that one job.” - Christopher Kurz, UCLA

“We work on cool stuff. College was great but the curriculum was set in stone, Revature teaches you the newer technologies such as Hibernate.” - Kevin Jones, Oregon State

“If I hadn’t done this program, I think I would still be searching for a development job or possibly changing my career field. I have come here to perfect this knowledge, this technology and I’ve done it!” - RaVaughn Green, University of Maryland

“The program has been amazing in taking me from a non-Computer Science background to a marketable IT professional.” - Omari Maxwell, University of Pennsylvania

I am also getting continuous technical support from my trainer. Excellent team they have who are supportive in all the ways. Work culture and environment is good.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Revature (Houston, TX).


    Questions will all be a breeze if you listened during your freshman programming courses. It is just a preliminary interview to see if you know a little bit of programming. Once you get in, you will go through programming boot camp.
