    Being a software engineer requires more than knowing how to code or build a web app. Over 15 challenging weeks on Flatiron School’s campus, students learn to think, and build, like software engineers — from developing coding proficiency to gaining an understanding of how products are designed and managed. In each three-week curriculum module, students develop key skills through interactive labs, lectures, and close collaboration, showcasing progress through Portfolio Projects. While the bulk of the material covered encompasses the Ruby and JavaScript ecosystems, we carefully designed our curriculum to prepare students to launch software engineering careers, independent of any specific language or technology. By the completion of the program, students have done much more than simply build technical skills: they have maintained technical blogs to show they can credibly talk tech; they have become a part of the tech community; they have amassed an impressive portfolio of unique, functional web applications to show employers as they enter the job-search phase with the support of our Career Services team.

    The Flatiron School Changed My Life

    Deciding to attend The Flatiron School was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that forever changed my life. 

    From Day 1, I knew my class was in for something special. I’ve literally never seen such a deep level of caring, anywhere. Everything we did at Flatiron was carefully crafted to ensure we got the most out of the program, and that we learned in the most optimal way possible. There was meticulously curated pre-work to prepare us before the semester even began, thorough (and fun!) labs to help us practice our newly acquired skills, in-semester tutoring by alumni, and even post-work to hone our skills after we graduated. I was particularly blown away by the selfless alumni who carved out time from their busy weekends to tutor us. 

    My Classmates
    I’m also thrilled that I was able to meet 27 like-minded individuals. From the moment we first introduced ourselves, it was clear that everyone had a fascinating story; it didn’t take long for all of us to become friends. Our class was so diverse and had so many different personalities! Over the course of the semester, we laughed together, we cried together, we learned from each other, we supported each other. Lifelong friendships were forged, undoubtedly we’ll cross paths with each other at future jobs, and I’m sure we’ll one day be starting companies together.

    Our Instructors
    I’d also like to thank you for providing us with the greatest instructors we could have asked for. Our teachers imparted us with a great deal of knowledge, answered all of our questions, and were always available to assist and guide us. They understood that each of us had different methods and speeds of learning, and catered to the unique needs of each individual student.

    But they were more than just our teachers; they were our friends. We had lunch with them, hung out after class, and had discussions that ranged from questions from a lecture, to the most mundane of topics. In addition to programming, the non-programming lessons that we learned from them were just as valuable. Our teachers led by example and showed us that being a caring, empathetic person is just as important as knowing the nuances of ActiveRecord or how to iterate through Nested Data Structures. Our teachers empowered us to not only become better developers, but to become better people. Blake, Steven, and Ian- you guys rock.

    The Overall Stellar Flatiron Staff
    I’d like to thank Avi and Adam for creating such a wonderful program, Rebecca and Jackie for tirelessly championing employers on our behalf, Elana and Carley for putting together all the wonderful meetups and events, and the rest of the incredible Flatiron staff for being awesome.

    In Conclusion...
    Thanks to The Flatiron School, the trajectory of my life has been forever altered. I never thought that I’d be capable of doing this. I never dreamed that becoming a software developer was an option, since I was never a “math or science” kid. Besides falling in love with programming and the unparalleled education, this program changed the way I think, reinvented my life, and shaped my brain differently.

    I’d like to conclude with something we were told at our graduation ceremony:

    “Tell the story that you have a family here forever. You have people here that love you and are rooting for you.”

    Well, Flatiron School, the feeling is mutual. I’m proud to call myself a Flatiron alum, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future.

    Thank you.

    My time at Flatiron School was excellent, and I would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone considering applying. When I signed up for the web developer course, my only goal at the time was simply to learn Ruby. After 12 weeks, I got so much more than that. Two takeaways I want to share with you: 1. You can do so much more when you work with your team. Flatiron School provided a positive and supportive environment for students to collaborate on projects together. Think about it: no company wants to hire a lone wolf programmer. 2. Ship something today. The dean of Flatiron Avi said, "First, make it run. Then make it right. Then make it fast." As someone who suffers from paralysis-by-over-analysis, I have no regrets about burning this mantra into my brain's ROM.

    Hello! I am a graduate of the 2013 Fall Web Development immersive, and I also worked for a year and a half as an Instructor, so I am one of several that has experienced Flatiron School from both a student perspective and an instructor perspective. 

    Why Flatiron School?
    I applied to several programming boot-camps in the summer of 2013, and was accepted into several. However, the decision to go to Flatiron School was largely because of the philosophy of Flatiron School ("if you're driven and imaginative enough, then learning how to code is not ultimately the objective, but rather opening yourself up to a world of new possibilities through code"). Other bootcamps focus on using assessments to qualify whether or not you're good enough to succeed in their programs, whereas Flatiron seeks to surround forward-thinking and driven individuals with like-minded peers in a diverse environment. This was what set Flatiron School apart from its competitors for me.

    Programming
    Yes, the objective of Flatiron School is to teach its students how to code, and how to code well. But that's not what makes Flatiron School succeed. It's the ability of the admissions team and its teachers to provide a rich, diverse community in which students push each other to succeed through collaboration and support. As a result of this, students learn programming by communicating with each other while working on projects, and ultimately creating a rich ecosystem of knowledge that iteratively builds upon itself, week after week throughout the semester.

    New York Tech Community
    Flatiron School has benefitted a lot by simply being part of the New York tech community, and has given back to the community as well. That's the primary ethos of Flatiron School. Its defining quality is community, and it hosts meetups and events every week, such as NYC on Rails, iOS Devs Meetup, Manhattan.js, and Flatiron Presents (student presentations). The diversity of its graduates that go forth into the New York tech community is something that sets Flatiron School apart from its peers; at least 40% of accepted students are female.

    In Closing...
    Flatiron School has been one of the best investments I have ever made. I say this not from a financial perspective, but rather from a career and motivational perspective. As the weeks progressed during my time at Flatiron School, my burgeoning skill-set started to show me what was possible. Coding is not a means to an end in itself, but rather it's the gateway that makes everything else attainable. Being able to build a software tool or product or whatever you may call it allows you come extremely close to having a profound effect on the things you care about. Making life more colorful and vibrant again. After all, isn't that the point of education? It is meant to bridge the gap between your dreams and reality. I didn't find that in high school or college, but rather I found that at Flatirn School.

    I graduated from Flatiron's Full Stack Web Developer Bootcamp (online/remote program) about 3 weeks ago and I have already had interest from potential employers. 

    I strongly recommend the Flatiron program to anyone who is serious about learning to code. I am not a STEM person, I came from an arts and humanities background and I found the Flatiron curriculum to be fun (and often very challenging) but always instructive. The instructors were always available to answer my questions and point me in the right direction. 

    I am very happy with the career services support that I have been receiving since my graduation and I anticipate finding a great job as a developer very soon.

    As I've been on my job search and spoken to working developers I’ve discovered that I know coding languages and tools that people who have been working as dev's for years don't know. 

    Flatiron made sure that I had all the skills I needed to be a full stack developer. I am so glad I enrolled in this program. It was a great investment! 

    I’ve been recommending it personally to my friends since I started the course.

    If you’re thinking about making the switch to becoming a software developer I encourage you to take the first part of the Flatiron curriculum. You can start for free! And if you do take the course they guarantee you’ll find a job in 6 months or your money back. Can’t argue with that.

    Very efficient way to teach people how to code by using hands-on approach and collaboration. Turns out, 3 month in enough to get skills to be able to solve complex tech problems at work. Mostly it comes from the fact that they not only teach specific tech topics, but how to solve problems in general.

    Job placement is great, the students are expected to do their part (i.e. building projects and writing tech blog) and the school does a great job matching students with companies. 

    Considering tech salaries (even for entry-level programmers), the return of investement is great as you land on the first job quickly.

    Flatiron's online full stack web development porogram was the curriculum I needed to transition from a career in financial services to a career in tech. 

    I did a number of online resources prior to discovering Flatiron and found the curriculum to be top notch and I was grateful for the way it was structured. It does a great job at building on top of previous lessons and is a great way to reinforce learning. 

    Another great thing about Flatiron's online program is the awesome community. Learning online can feel a little lonely but Flatiron set up the online community in such a way that while going through the program you don't feel alone. 

    I couldn't have asked for a better experience and was glad I chose to learn to become a developer through them!

    I attended Flatiron School and would highly suggest self-learning over their program. The ISA loans are a rip-off, their program will not get you a job. I dropped out 3 months early and still owe the max amount for the loan.

    The teachers were undereducated, the program was all over the place and the amount of work they gave fluctuated constantly, where you'd almost have a week off because they didn't calculate how long assignments would take, and then other weeks you'd have an impossible workload.

    For anyone looking for a Dev/Design Bootcamp, I'd recommend looking into DevMountain or disciplining yourself to self-learn. All the information you need to succeed as a Developer or Designer is available online.

    First of all, I loved my Flatiron Experience.  I went full-time online, I was involved, and I had the time to invest.  If you don't do well with fast-paced learning, or if you aren't able to comfortably reach out and ask for help, you may have a tough time with this bootcamp.  The content is put together well enough, but I recall several sections where if the wording didn't make sense, the only way to move forward was to group up and figure it out with the help of others.

    They do a great job of easing you into Ruby and getting you excited about the projects and some of my classmates had some really incredible ideas for their very basic first module.  The course does get tougher rather than easier the further you go when you move over into Rails, Javascript, and the React Framework.  I'd lost about 40% of my classmates by the end of the 2nd module.  So don't waste your money if you don't plan to fully commit to software development.

    You'll pick up a ton of coding ability and the ability to learn how to learn to code.  This allowed several of my classmates an advantage at picking up entirely new stacks after graduation and as they entered the workforce.  This does bring up the actual job-hunting/placement after graduation.  For the most part, the time-frames and salary expectations that Flatiron touts are really only relevant to people living in New York.  With remote work on the rise, that number is subject to change based on State and employer.  

    As far as interviews go, the preparation leaves a lot to be desired.  Flatiron does a pretty terrible job at getting their students ready to tackle algorithm coding challenges and to practice the interviewing dialogue that most companies expect people to have mastered.  Several companies want that CS degree knowledge even if they don't require a degree for hiring.  You'll need to put in extra practice elsewhere to build these skills.

    On the other hand, not all companies require these types of interviews and Flatiron actually does a great job at pairing you with some very experienced Career Coaches who stick with you weekly after graduation for up to 6 months while you are searching for a job.  They send out weekly emails with potential locations that are hiring or running meetup events to get your presence noticed and connections built.  They really emphasize a public online presence to help get you noticed and I found my career by having a LinkedIn profile that drew lots of attention.  My employer actually contacted me directly which was awesome.

    Overall, Flatiron isn't for everyone, but if you're willing to commit, they offer a lot of resources that can help you be successful even if you don't agree with their entire curriculum.  For me, this was the exact learning environment I needed to be able to commit towards learning software development.

    I was a student during the pandemic at Flat Iron School (FIS). Because of Covid19 related reasons and the state of my family I fell behind in a class. After seeking advice from the person in charge of my cohort (Sahid), they recommended me to move to another Cohort and assure me that there would be no other consequences but I had to start from day 1. Given my circumstances, although not very happy about it, I agreed. Soon after I received a message that I was removed from the program and that I owed 15,000 dollars! I reached out to admissions to see what was happening only to find out that, not only I was not part of the school anymore, but I was not able to apply the same way I did before (using the ISA), that I had to pay USD$ 15,000 and that Sahid did not inform me correctly. The person in admission Mr. Peter Hardwick said that the matter was going to be investigated. After a month of not hearing back from him I reached out to him, and he did not know who I was, even though I met with him through Zoom before, and I had to explain my case once more. After a long wait, and me having to reach out again because again, since they did not reach out to me. Me and Mr. Hardwick had a meeting in which he informs me that "In Sahid's opinion he gave you the right information". After requesting the transcript from chat me in Sahid had through slack (since I no longer ad access to tings related to school), Mr. Hardwick had the audacity to tell me that Slack does not save conversations! (Although I do use slack for work) Now, because of Flat Iron School staff's “advice”, I am in debt and not able to further my education. If like me you are also going through this please let get in contact. You can reach out to Felixataveras@hotmail.com.

    Sometimes you have this dream you want to make it become true, but you will
    Need good tools , the tools usually are good at the begining and start to go bad after a while but Flatiron isnt just a school, its a Family, they will go through everthing step by step
    With you. I didnt have any experience in coding , so it was really hard 4months for me but it felt doable with Flatrion, they will provide anything you want . Just a quick suggestion for future students if you want to start any school study a little bit about coding to come in class with a background because the teachers are perfect but it will slow you down to understand some concepts and you will be behind, speaking of teachers , my Teachers were the best . I know everyone will enjoy this school because all the labs that they will provide you to learn more stuff are so fun and the topics are very useful.
    Thanks Flatiron

    I had an amazing experience at Flatiron School! I attended the full-time, in-person (on Zoom because of covid) Software Engineering course at the Washington DC campus. The course focused on Ruby, Rails, JavaScript and React.
    All instructors and coaches were very helpful and always available to clear any doubts and answer all our questions. They are very knowledgeable and always made sure everyone understood the topics correctly.
    Finally, the career service was very helpful! At the end of the program, Flatiron paired each of us with a career coach to guide us through the interview process. Each week I would meet my career coach for a 30min session to ask questions and discuss interviews.

    I originally signed up for the in-person immersive program before covid lockdown in New York City, March 2020. Once we went into lockdown, we were completely remote and everything was done via Zoom.

    It didn't quite change much except for the atmosphere (i.e., being at home and afraid to go outside).

    I had to take a leave of absence for personal reasons and the rules were very accommodating. My point of contact, while super busy, always made sure he was able to answer my questions and/or follow up with me.

    The instructors ability to adapt to the now remote intensive environment was amazing. Not only did they find creative ways to help us, they also found ways to become EVEN MORE ACCESSIBLE to us, probably even more so than the normal non-covid-lockdown in-person program.

    Shout out to Tashawn Williams for being super creative and always finding better ways to make things click for us.

    The Career Services part of the program was helpful with its guidance and education. However, I think they could have provided more examples of "proven resumes."

    Another thing I found in my own job search was that I realized (personally), I needed to find a job with little regard to position or company since I'm a parent. For me, finding a job and starting my experience right away was more important than anything else.

    Networking, Blogging, and continuing my education on my own are all still extremely important -- but I actually did apply to many companies. I had two different types of resumes: 1 for job scanners for online applications and 1 for "humans" which I through together and designed according to some proven examples that were passed my way. I also had a 3rd one that a designer friend of mine created that was also amazing.

    In all, it was a great experience.
