- Data Analytics Full-Time Bootcamp Ironhack- 9/28/2019Víctor • García • Graduate • Verified via LinkedIn
Thanks to the support of two excellent teachers, one focused on Python and the other focused on ML, as well as 3 more specialists in the field who in all classes knew how to answer all my questions, not only could I conclude the Bootcamp but we also acquired the practice and The knowledge necessary to start in this field of data analysis, we have an excellent environment and at all times we have direct communication with the entire Ironhack Mexico team.
During the Bootcamp course we had a first ML teacher who did not have the necessary skills, so we requested a new teacher and the Ironhack team sent us an excellent machine learning teacher, which was Yonatan Rodriguez Alvarez, which I highly recommend; and with respect to the previous teacher, don't worry because he doesn't teach on campus anymore.
- Not What It Claims to Be- 12/20/2016Joshua Hawthorne-Madell • Graduate • Course: Data Science and Machine Learning • Campus: New York City
They do not help place you in a job. The "best" they offer is to unpaid intern for them with the vague offers of unpaid work later. The content is okay, but you could find the same online with a little digging. I could not even get a letter of completion/recomendation from them.
I think its a poor program for the money, and mainly a way for the owner to keep his data science company afloat. I'd look for other bootcamps, or maybe just suck it up and learn on your own. The course material was okay, and did help my accelerate the progress of my learning, but that wasn't really worth all the time and money I spent on ths course.
- Excellent Bootcamp- 9/30/2016Katherine Bueno • Graduate • Course: Data Science and Machine Learning Immersive • Campus: New York City
I am a former educator transitioning into Data Science, and this course has been an excellent foundation. The course has exceptional instructors, and an impressive curriculum to match.
I've had 4 different instructors throughout my time here, and every single instructor is professional, extremely knowledgeable, approachable, and always patient.
I appreciated that the course really hones in on real-world applications of Data Science, very similar to how it would be done in the work place. No nonsense! It is intense from beginning to end, with lots of relevant and exciting lectures, so definitely be prepared to be challenged and put in the effort!
Overall, it was an wonderful experience. I highly recommend this course to data aficionados, as well as the beginners (like myself) trying to move toward Data Science and Machine Learning.
- Hadoop / Big Data- 9/20/2016John • Graduate • Course: Big Data and Hadoop • Campus: New York City
- Accelerated learning- 4/9/2015Kevin
Hadoop and big data are not subjects that are easy to digest. This course really put me to the test. The instructor is no nonsense and has over a decade of big data experience. You can't learn data science from anyone better. He has connections and job assistance shouldn't be a problem if you have the right stuff. I don't come from a technical background so it took some time and dedication but I was able to receive my Hadoop certification and it was only through the help of this course. I had to put in 10-12 hours/day 5 days a week for 3+ weeks to really get a good understanding. If you're serious about data science, take the leap of faith with this school.

- Bit Bootcamp (Big Data/Data Science) Review- 11/4/2014Charles Henick • Graduate • Course: Big Data and Data Science • Campus: New York City
Fresh out of university and looking for employment, I stumbled upon an ad for Bit Bootcamp. It promised that I could learn how to converse with big data and solve real world problems in only one month. At first I thought it must be a scam, but it turns out that promise was kep and moret. After spending a month working through a thorough curriculum with an incredible instructor, I was able to pass the Hadoop certificiation exam and find a job working at one of the largest companies in NYC. The whole process could not have gone any better. If you are prepared to work hard for a high reward, sign up for this program as soon as possible.
- BitBootCamp (Big Data)- 11/4/2014Jose Escolano • Big Data Architect Developer • Graduate
After 12 years working in academia, I decided to move to the industry and I found big data can require of people with similar skills than mine. But in a very competitive job market, if any specific experience on the sector, I could be very hard to put a foot inside.
I found by chance an advertisment about bitbootcamp. After scheduling an interview with the instructors, they accept my candidature to join the course. During three intense weeks we review, in a very practical sense, aspects related to Linux, SQL and Java. Despite I had experience on some of these topics, I found myself improving my skills by applying my knowledge in very oriented way. The most interesting part was the dedicated to Hadoop (HDFS, Mapreduce, Hive,...). I had tried several times to learn by myself, but the topic is pretty complicated. However, this course help me to understand the Big Data principles, and how Hadoop is the right solution. Furthermore, during those intensive weeks, I found myself solving real problems with real data, and specially, enjoying the process.
Few days later after finishing the course, I found, with the assistance of the instructors, a position in a big company in the Big Data Development time. And I apply everyday all what I learned here.
I strongly recommend the course for those who want to start on this challenging topic and are decided to work hard. Of course, this course only make sense if the student is really committed to make a considerable effort to learn a complex discipline in few weeks.
- Big Data Training- 11/3/2014Anonymous • GraduateCourse was the full package from beginning to end. I was taught everything I needed to know for real world big data analytics. No boring powerpoints, theory lessons...pure real world application skills. Simple as that. Instructor has years of experience leading a big data team at a top company in NYC. The best part about this course was the job placement. I highly recommend this course to everyone. If you put in some serious time and effort, you'll become fully marketable to big data positions that pay very nicely.
- Engineer- 6/14/2017Anonymous • Graduate • Course: Data Science and Machine Learning • Campus: New York City
Extremely poor value for the money we pay., More than $5000 of my own hard earned money (+ lots of money to travel to and fro from NYC) to get instruction from couple of instructors who just were not the experts. They would hand out notes and programming assignment text every class, and take questions. There WAS NO attempt ot even link real industry use-cases to the classes. No deep insight or anything... One can simply take courses on Coursera which was far better. No attempt to provide real datasets (large). No attempts to teach real problem solving. No industry experts even came for the class. Finally, absolutely no career guidance!! And no certificate either.
In short, complete waste of hard-earned money. I took this course only because some site mentioned it is a great place - probably paid by this useless bootcamp.

Waste of time, money, no job placement, not hiring partners, all lies. They don't help you at all with jobs it's like yeah we have hiring partners, you don't need projects for github etc...lies. They don't answer emails...Save your money go to a real data science school. You would think that they would believe in their own program to the point where they would at least give you an internship with their consulting company to at least gain some experience nope...they just sell you crap....SAVE YOUR $$$ you will not get a job through these people.
