    Data Engineer

    My experience with BloomTech (FKA Lambda School) went above and beyond my expectations. I was switching careers and had no math or coding background. I didn't want to go into debt for a graduate degree, and a $15k 3-month boot camp seemed risky. I chose BloomTech because of their no-tuition-up-front ISA, and the 12-month part-time curriculum was the right amount of time for me (that program is on pause, currently only full-time is offered). 

    The school went through some changes th...

    Great experience when I started, but hear they changed direction.

    When I first started, we had TL's with weekly stand-ups, code reviews, and a sense of a cohort team vibe. It was great, but I hear the new direction they are taking has gone away with those things, which is what really made my experience memorable.

    They do have a good curriculum, and job assistance, along with preparation for tech interviews. My resume for sure would not be as good as it is today without their assistance. I still keep in touch with some of my cohort since we devel...

    Exceptional In-depth Full Stack Bootcamp

    Like any school what you get out of it is what you put in. That being said, I was really happy with the instructors, curriculum, and support team. I was able to land a non-developer role in a tech company within only 3 months of starting the part-time course. Then when I graduated my company offered me a full-time dev role. I had always worked hourly jobs in the past and didn't have any history in tech except for a few self-taught studies that I had done online. I was in a really tough f...

    Full Stack Web Developer

    I joined Lambda School after doing extensive research on bootcamps and listening to its founder on multiple podcasts. I had zero coding experience, and I had never coded anything before.  From day 1, I was dedicated to fully immersing myself in the course material, guided projects, and the huge network on Slack. I am an active learner, and I found Lambda to be challenging, yet super rewarding. I felt the more time I put into learning, connecting, and practicing the more ...

    Highly Recommended!

    I started Lambdaschool at the beginning of 2021 full time.  I have had several years prior knowledge of web development through self study but I wanted help in finding work and also to fill in any gaps of knowledge.  I researched several schools prior and wanted to a school that passed my requirements.  The curriculum is everything I expected it to be and more.  I know what the core elements are for a web developer to have experience in and they teach all of it.  They have some excellent...

    iOS Mobile Software Development

    When I decided I wanted to make a career change I wasn't sure where to start. I found Lambda and was initially interested trying due to their ISA agreement. It helped me go through school without paying a dime until I had a job of at least $50,000. After enrolling, I was nervous on not having any experience at all and was afraid the learning curve would be too extreme. Fortunately, the instructors, TL's, and fellow students were more than amazing and always willing to help! Not only just...

    court transcriber to software engineer I

    No college degree, attended school from October 2019 to July 2020, first tech job started in October 2020, been there ever since.  I make six figures, and the school helped me negotiate an extra 20k onto my salary.  I had run a court transcription business for over a decade prior to that, still do a little bit on my off time, and so I hadn't looked for a job in over 15 years.  They helped me extensively with the job search.  
    I liked the classes; they were pretty fast paced.  But whil...

    Lambda School Review

    This bootcamp helped prepare me for real-world development in a way that college didn't. I would definitely recommend Lambda School to someone who is pursuing a career in development!

    You get out what you put in

    So I was part of the part time program.  I started in Jan 2020 and ended up moving to full time for the last Unit and thus finished Jan 2021.  There were a lot of changes near the end of my time as a student there.  Reading through the reviews you can clearly see this.  I was also a TL during my time there so felt the transition both as a student and a Team Lead during these changes.  I won't say I agreed or disagreed with the changes as I was not part of the process that made them.

    Last year I was a bartender. This year I'm a Web Developer!

    I was bartending for 6 years in NYC, but looking for a big change. Covid hit, and I felt pressure to make the best of my time off, and I was searching for an affordable path to web development. Asking everyone in my social network, I hit upon a friend of the family who had just landed a 90k job right out of a bootcamp. It was Lambda.

    I was broke, on unemployment as the bars had all closed, but our buddy told me about Lambda's ISA program where you start with no money down, and pay...

    I recommend this school too much.

     I started Lambda School in November 2020. This was right after they made the change to their Full Stack Web Development (FT) program from 9 months to 6 months.

    This school is designed to help you succeed. They genuinely care about your career success, and about your learning. They throw many different resources out at you to use, and lots of 'safety nets' if you don't get a concept the first time around. All of that said, you are still very much in charge of your learning, and if...

    Full Stack Course

    I Did the Full-stack web-dev course with the Java backend option over Node. Being completely honest, your experience is really dependent on who your Team Lead is. Originally in my first two months I had a Team Lead that was kinda wack, he just gave me answers(as someone who became a Team Lead later on, that is definitely NOT what youre supposed to do but I guess Lambda cant control that) and I was having a hard time learning. After I flexed (where you opt in to redo a month). I got a new...
