    Simulating the world of tech

    As a former computer science student in college, Flatiron will teach you things I never learned, or even expected to learn, in a coding bootcamp. Upon graduating, I became even more impressed with the overall experience when using the career services. I felt incredibly lost leading up to graduation when thinking about the job hunt because I had no experience in the corporate world. I was not switching careers, but still pursuing my original one. I now feel fully equipped with knowing lot...

    One of the best if not THE best bootcamp i ever enrolled in

    I joined ReCoded Algeria Bootcamp back in june 2017, currently i'm still a student in it and will hopefully graduate by December, the whole bootcamp was nothing but an amazing experience, from the mentors, to the career prep teams, to the choosen students, to the provided materials and feedback, truly the best. It wasn't onlu great academically but felt homey as well with the shared love, laughter, memes and even personal experiences from everyone included. I HIGHLY recommend it!

    Great Introduction to Software Engineering

    I chose Flatiron School so that I could attend a bootcamp in-person. It was important for me to establish working relationships and gain experience working in an office-like environment while programming with other developers. Flatiron was really great for that since you spend a lot of time on campus and can mix in with other cohorts to see what is coming in your next phase, or help others in phases you've already completed. The campus also provides a nice atmosphere to foster collaborat...

    Great Bootcamp experience

    I had a great experience at Flatiron. I met some really great people in my cohort. The bootcamp is very high pace and requires discipline. The course is not for everyone. I got to work on technical projects and build out a great portfolio. The instructors are knowledgable. I wish I would have enrolled when they rolled out the new curriculum (Python/Flask).

    Motivating but needs to Decelerate

    Flatiron School is without a doubt, a great bootcamp for receiving the fullstack engineering experience from true industry professionals. When I say great, I mean it's great because of the community. The community really does motivate you to code. Everywhere you go, you see people work together or alone, drawing diagrams on whiteboards to design user interfaces and systems, and students constantly finding new technologies to incorporate into their next project. If that i...

    Flatiron Model truly does work

    When I started Flatiron School, my cohort was my instructor's first coding bootcamp cohort ever. This person, with years of programming experience and a background in education, struggled to adjust to the fast paced, high demand bootcamp atmosphere and was very overwhelmed. Initially, I was upset and insecure with an intimidating workload, and seemingly no guidance from an instructor who was just as confused as I was. 

    The way Flatiron is structured is that you have modules with l...

    Thorough, expensive, and fast-paced.

    I started the Flatiron program back in August of 2022. I was a Mortgage Loan Officer who was looking to pivot my business experience into a more technical role where I could merge my soft skills into a more technical field. I was referred to the Flatiron program by a fellow Loan Officer who was also interested in moving into a more technical role. He convinced me that the program was worth the price tag. ($16,900 is what I paid for the start of my program.) I left my job and started the ...

    Got me my dream job

    Like many others have said, what you get out of the bootcamp experience is what you put into it. They will support you but no one will hold your hand — you need to be highly-motivated and interested in the discipline you're studying. However, I would also add that the reality is it is also what you bring into it. By that I mean you will be far more likely to land a decent job in a reasonable timeframe out of bootcamp if you have impressive and relevant higher education credentials and/or...

    Part-Time Software Engineering

    I have always had an interest in software engineering growing up, but I ended up in another career field because I felt that I didn't know much about the tech industry. After 4+ years as a Physical Therapist Assistant, I decided I wanted to change my career path and thought about pursuing my doctorate in Physical Therapy or becoming a Physician's Assistant. The overwhelming thought of putting myself in so much more debt and many more years of school made me decide to look elsewhere. The ...

    What you put in is what you get out

    I very much enjoyed my Flatiron School experience! (For full transparency, I just signed an offer after 2.5 months of searching so I'm feeling particularly positive right now!) The instructors and curriculum did a great job of setting guide rails to success. Do not think this is not hard work or a commitment, but if you commit yourself to this and spend extra time you can leave in a good position to find an entry level job in tech, while acknowledging that getting your foot in the door i...

    Software Engineering

    I completed the life, full time software engineering bootcamp this year (15 weeks, full time 9-6). Overall, I would recommend the program. I thought it was very well organized, and the materials were educational and easy to follow. I would do the program again, because I do not think I would have been able to learn the material as quickly on my own, and I attribute this to the pace of the program, instructor support, and coding challenges/projects which held me accountable to keep up.

    Part Time Flex-You're left on your own

    In this school, the part-time flex program, it is self-directed. And they mean it. You are left to your own devices. The only help you get is from former students who are paid $20 an hour to answer a question if you by chance get stuck but I have gotten timed out in those chat calls. Several didn't want to share the screen to help you through the lab in Visual Studio, etc. Before class even starts you are given 75-100 hours of pre-work to finish no matter if you're part-time or full-time...

A coding bootcamp can propel your career in tech to new heights, but that often means quitting a job, uprooting your life, or moving to a new city . Maybe you re moving to a new city to become a developer and need a short-term housing option. Or perhaps you re an international student without credit history.
