    The bootcamp prep course has been incredibly helpful on my journey to learn Javascript. The IDE is very intuitive, and the community is very helpful and responsive when called upon. Now, I am using the same tool to learn Ruby and am having a great time building my knowledge. The admissions process was also great- with both of my interviews being conducted by professional, helpful, and kind individuals!

    For someone with zero prior coding experience like myself, the free online Data Science bootcamp was a game changer. The content was challenging enough to get me to really push myself and work hard and learn a LOT by the end, but it wasn't as intimidating as to discourage me and make me give up at any point. I like how each new lab built on the previous one and things got more complicated very gradually and logically, so I never felt lost or frustrated during the process. The data and examples that were provided for each new exercise/concept were pretty intuitive and it wasn't until the very last few labs that things got very challenging and I found myself having to re-read and re-do each step multiple times before it really stuck.  I think in addition to the great content of the prep course, someone with no prior Python/Data Science experience can use the Online Bootcamp to learn whether coding and Data Science is really something that fits their personality and that they might like to commit themselves to learning more and pursuing a career in the field. 

    The admissions process was very seamless as well since everyone from Flatiron was very responsive, professional and helpful. You can really get a sense for how committed everyone in the community is to setting you up for success and making sure that their school/community is the right fit for you personally. I really appreciate all the individual help and attention that I got during the admissions process, which made me feel welcomed and excited to join Flatiron and embark on an exciting journey of intensive learning and making many new friends with similar interests and career goals!

    I had spent a few years studying on my own and was amazed by how much they taught me.

    The course is split into a few section. Each section has its own instructor.

    I did the online program, and had coaches available until 1am to answer questions!

    They assign you a coach at the end of the program to help you find a good job.

    I'm loving my new job and couldn't be happier.

    Ok, after the first week of the free Flatiron coding bootcamp, I thought I'd share my candid thoughts regarding what I've learned/observed so far. But before I get into the details, you should know that as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, I'm all about the "processes....good, bad and ugly.  So, with that said, here's where my head is at regarding my experience to date.

    Without a doubt, from day one I was intimated with even the thought of participating in any coding training and given Flatiron's reputation for being top-shelf (meaning "challenging"), that made it even worse. I wasn't totally convinced that (given what was going to be expected of me over these next few months), I was ready for this program.

    Well, week one has indeed been challenging - but manageable. It takes a very real sense of commitment and devotion from the student to put the hours of work in each day in order to keep things moving along. You really have got to want to do this.  But with the pain - comes the gain.

    The Readme guidance with each lesson requires a good bit of concentration, so when you decide to do the Flatiron program, make sure you have a study location that is quiet and you can really get into this material without being disturbed.

    The labs that you'll work on is where the "rubber really meets the road" and this is where I've spent the majority of my time so far. As frustrated as I've been at times, when needed, I kept on going back to the previous course material until the "ah hah" moment would occur.

    And here's the best part about my entire experience so far. The technical advisors (and at times, other students) have been quite good at responding to my needs. They know how to take the challenges/questions you have at the moment and without providing a solution right out of the gate, they help you think things out and work through your issue/questions. In my opinion, that's the true learning process in a nutshell - helping the student to help themselves. 

    AND this is REAL-TIME Q & A technical advising going on....and not like some other programs where you fire off an email and then wait for hours for a response!

    In summary, after Week 1, I'm quite pleased with my Flatiron experience.  I have a lot of work to do before I complete the Full Stack Development course, but with each day, my confidence is growing and little by little, it's starting to make sense.  Remember, in the tech world, you get what you pay for.  Give return on your investment (ROI) some serious consideration when selecting a boot camp.  I did, and the logical conclusion for me was the Flatiron program. 

    Also, how many coding bootcamps offer a Data Sciences component, as an alternative to the Full Stack coursework?  I'm willing to bet you'll use 2-3 fingers (if that many) when doing your due diligence.  You get what you pay for.

    I'm glad I'm here.

    I have spent time on various online free web development courses, and this is by far the best one I have encountered.  I like the structure of going back and forth between reading about a topic, and then implementing your new knowledge.  It also builds very well, adding skills as you go along, allowing you to complete a whole project piece by piece, rather than just teaching a bunch of disconnected skills.  Additionally, instructors from FlatIron School are incredibly helpful if you get stuck, and super responsive.  I never waited for more than 2 minutes to get feedback or assistance, whether it was just a text chat or a screenshare to help me work through my problem.  I highly recommend this bootcamp prep course to everyone.  Even if you have no intention of going to a bootcamp, you will get something out of it!

    Overall had a great experience with Flatiron's online web developer course. My objective was to learn the relevant skills to land me a job as a software developer, and the Flatiron curriculum filled the bill.

    No bootcamp is going to automatically/easily land you a job after graduation. After graduating, you will likely need to hustle just as hard or harder than you did during the bootcamp. That said, Flatiron's curriculum sufficiently taught me the skills to land a very competitive sofware developer role.

    An excellent program that was well paced and fostered a great community. The program was extremely job focused, every student got a career coach and there were lessons on things like managing a resume and fixing your linkedin. The tech stack was as thorough as it could be for 15 weeks, btu there was a definite emphasis on HOW to learn, so that when you get a job, you'll know what to focus on when learning a new stack. 

    100% recomended if you're serious about getting a job quickly. I really enjoyed my time there and will miss everyone.

    I had spent seven months learning Swift on my own and working around in Xcode and I knew it was time for me to get some serious training. With so many options out there, I wasn't sure what would be the next step. Flatiron's Bootcamp Prep course provided me with an essential link between exploring code on my own to learning how to be a software engineer. In the Bootcamp online and even screen-sharing of your code is available all day long and into the night, the course is well-rounded to introduce to many aspects of actually working as a software engineer and lastly it really prepares you for what their Bootcamp. If you're on the fence, do the Bootcamp Prep! You don’t have anything to lose.

    I completed the data science bootcamp prep course in preparation for the data science immersive course at Flatiron. The course provided a great introduction to Python as well as other statistical and mathematical concepts important to data science. While certain portions were a bit fast paced for a beginner, Flatiron provides teachers to answer questions you have a long the way. Would definitely recommend this course for anyone interested in data science without much prior coding or math background.

    I partook in Flatiron schools online coding bootcamp via learn. I initially worked while working on the course and I enjoyed the flexiability it provided for me to both work and learn coding. The course is structured in a way that you develop a core foundation of a topic before moving on to more advanced items. After completing the course I had the opportunity to work with a career coach from flatiron. We had weekly meetings to catch up on my progress of finding my next role. The tips my coach provided were invaluable, from drafting thank you letters to Cultural mock interviews. Aside from the coaches, Flatiron school has a career team who actively sources employers and presenting it to us via slack/email or even networking events. All in all it was a great experience and would recommend it.
