    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...

    You get out of it what you put into it

    As my business was going to crap during the pandemic, a life-long curiosity -- software development -- began to grow stronger and stronger. I had messed with some web dev stuff prior to lambda, but usually using no-code tools like webflow. I had always wanted to develop much richer web applications though. In November of 2020 I decided to go all-in and enrolled for Lambda School's web development track.

    I started in January 2021 as part of the Web40 cohort. This is just after som...

    DON'T!

    Here is the thing. When I first started with Lambda , it was ok. But now you are basically learning on your own. They removed stand ups meetings, code reviews, 1:1  help and such. So you are basically left out with live lectures , which even though they are great, you can find the same content on youtube. I am towards the end of the program and can't really do nothing about it but to warm people to stay away. I will have to do my best with the little I got to get a job but you are better...

    PLEASE RUN FROM THIS PROGRAM

    I joined Lambda School with high hopes. I began the program when they still had Tech Leads (minimum wage paid students to help you). The Tech Leads were advertised to some degree as subject matter experts.  Once they were removed the value of the program diminished greatly. We started each day with 1hr lectures from mediocre instructors, then you are left to code by yourself all day. If you're stuck, well there is google. Lambda tells you they're not there to hold your hand but to give y...

    Lambda Ghosting Students

    I was a new programmer in the field and wanted to develop my skills so I could land a job in software engineering. I saw the Lambda School commercial and was hooked. I immediately applied, and in haste, I received a response from Lambda School to fill out some information, and add a video. A day or so later I received a response asking to complete the assessment exam which consisted of several coding sections, with Q & A. I passed this portion and was immediately enrolled in Lambda s...

    Lambda took me from 0 to 100 as a Data Scientist

     Lambda School was great. Just what the doctor ordered. I love the instructors and the community. Not perfect, but it has definitely put me on track to become a Data Scientist. About me, I was a preschool teacher before and as of today I am looking at 3 potential prospects for data sci work in regenerative agriculture, federal government contracting, and ironically training others in data science, with more opportunities coming down the job hunt pipeline.

    If it sounds too good to be true, it is

     After I was a few Units in (3) and thus financially obligated to pay the ISA, they removed core components of the program. There are no more assigned team leads. There are no more standups with your classmates so you can discuss the same project and see the many different ways to approach a solution. There is no more 1 on 1 review of your work. Where a mentor was paid to mentor you, you are now forced to mentor other students and vice versa. I've never heard from my mentor. You grade yo...

    Save your money and teach yourself

    The first month or two of Lambda is good and has a lot of useful information, but the moment your ISA takes effect and you owe them money the curriculum goes downhill fast. The morning material is useless and teaches you practically nothing. The instructors have absolutely not experience with teaching which makes for a bad learning experience. Just because someone knows how to code, doesn't mean that they can teach someone else how to code. 

    The majority of the time I have to refe...

    All the 5* reviews are expired

     Lambda has changed how things are done!
    All the reviews here prior to 10/2020 are for something far different then the current set up. 
    I think it is important to understand how drastically the changes have devalue Lambda for myself and others.  
    When I started Lambda my schedule for each sprint looked like so:
    • 1 Hour of ‘fluff’ Career Readiness
