    Very Hard - take your time if you can

    I made it through. I was a part-time evening student, I was working on an assembly line during the day (Lost 30 lbs- not an easy job). I was given a lot of extra chances, extra help, and eventually made it through. I held myself back when I wasn't sure how to deal with certain concepts (redux). You have to put in the reps. But I did make it. I did get a better job!

    Most helpful if you are a junior developer

    I was a front-end developer when I joined Lambda school hoping to learn some back-end development technologies and to find a better and higher paying job. Now I am a frontend developer (with a possibility to move to full stack) at a big tech company with a salary of over $100,000.
    I am for the most part happy and satisfied with the curriculum, the materials and the teachers. The school gives students free and easy access to lots of premium tools which I really liked. The teachers and ...

    They don't even review your code

    They're trying to automate the grading system after they ended the team leads program. Team Leads were other students above your unit that were forced to work for them for minimum wage that were supposedly going to help you move along, answer questions and review your submitted code. Now as long as you submit your work with the right file type before deadline you've passed. No one is looking at your code. The problem is really bad: I was told by one of my classmates she's sure she'll rep...

    Lambda is Untrustworthy

    Lambda has made massive changes to its curriculum halfway through my experience. 

    While some of the changes might be for the better,  many of them change fundamental facts about Lambda that would have made me reconsider signing away part of my soul to the tune of 17% of my income for five years. 

    Also, some of the changes have necessary bad side effects that Lambda is unwilling to acknowledge. They no longer have "team leads" individuals with coding experience who would loo...

    CEO is deceitful

    Careful of the dream being sold. The CEO is very loose with the truth.

    Look elsewhere

    I couldn't even get through the admissions process. I suppose no reply within 4 business days means I didn't make the cut. It's been 2 weeks and no word from Karen. I sent her a screenshot of my Web Dev application which lists my email address, but I guess she still couldn't find it. She didn't know the email address that I listed on my application was a short domain email address despite the fact that she was still able to email me and I was replying. I also hadn't entered my full name th...

    Overall Fantastic Experience

    I would highly recommend Lambda School to anyone who is looking to further their education and personal skills while also getting a job in the field of software development. I graduated in mid-2018 and the curriculum was still in flux. Some bits were a little rough but overall it was a fantastic experience. They are very keen to adapt to student needs and trends in the industry. I even saw a few critical pivots happen within a week after my cohort voiced their concerns. Most of the i...

    Perfect Experience!

    I started Lambda School in April of 2018 after much deliberation about whether an online school provided the same quality education as one in person. On the surface, it seemed like Lambda School was too good to be true: free until you get a job, world class instructors, ability to get in touch with your instructors at any time. I just graduated a few days ago, and Lambda has delivered on every part of what I signed up with. The instructors were amazing; if I ever had a question about somet...

    Drink the kool-aid

    I joined Lambda School with Project Manager Experience and a professional background of working with developers for a number of years. I am a millenial with a college degree who was looking to bridge over to programming and development.

     I find that lambda school's Full stack web program started off very cheery and promising but quickly fell short as soon as the first month was over. It immediately became apparent that they only cared about getting you job ready for maybe a very ri...

    Love Lambda!

    I went to Lambda School something like 7 months after they launched (They were only live for 7 months!!!).

    Of course, I experienced a lot of the growing pains that come with being an early user of a brand new startup (hence the 4 stars I gave for the curriculum, I had to keep it honest). Some parts weren't very organized, some material wasn't well explained, etc... etc...

    But the transformation from month 1 to month 7 was m-i-n-d-b-l-o-w-i-n-g. Night and day.
