"I am drawn to the social justice mission of Turing to increase opportunities for underrepresented groups in the programming world. I chose to continue my career here because I believe that programming can be a new frontier for social change, and Turing is leading the way." Allison Reu Singer, Student Experience Manager
"Turing is unique in it's ability and willingness to change. There's nothing held sacred: if we come up with a better way, a better idea, it's put into practice that day. There's no waiting around for the ‘right time’ - that allows us to evolve at an incredible speed." Jeff Casimir, Executive Director
"Turing School is harder than any other development school. It promises and consistently delivers mid-level developers who know how to code, communicate about code, understand how to share responsibilities as a team, and respect different cultural backgrounds in the workplace." Romeeka Gayhart, Instructor
