    Coming from background in media and communications, coding was something I never really saw myself getting into. However, my brother kept telling me I would love it if I just tried it, and boy, was he right! I started off with the free bootcamp prep course and I truly couldn't have asked for a better intro to software development. What I liked most about the way this course was designed, was how it put aside all that technical jargon (that scared the living daylight out of me) and instead, it talks you through coding as if it was your friend/brother/partner talking to you. And that's what made me continue with the course, until I finished - and actually applied (and got admitted) into the immersive in-person program!

    Flatiron's Bootcamp Prep Course uses learn.co platform to facilitate the bootcamp prep material. One of the coolest features is the "ask a question" button. If you ever get stuck/are feeling frustrated/need guidance/etc, you just click on the button, type in your question, and you get immediate response. You get personalized help (even get paired up with a technical coach if you need to talk through the issue and/or screenshare) and the Socratic method is used so well that they guide you through answering your own questions. I found this feature and the response methods used as critical to reinforcing my learning, enabling indepth understanding and boosting my confidence as a student.

    The Flatiron schools prep course is a great intro to coding. The prep course teaches you the basics of HTMLCSSJavaScript, and Ruby. At the end of each section you are tested on what you've learned so far through their in browser IDE. A great feature of the prep course is that you are able to ask fellow students and instructors questions if there is a lab you need help with. Responses are pretty quick but all depends on how busy they are. You can expect a response in no more than 5 minutes. Which is ok, while you're waiting you might figure out what you did wrong! 

    Overall it is a great experience for anyone that wants to try coding or see what its about. Best of all, its free. All you need to start is Google Chrome and an internet connection to start. If you're up to the challenge, you can sign up for the course at Learn.co. 

    Sincerely,

    Chris

    Flatiron had me hooked from the moment I started the free online prep Bootcamp course. From there I enrolled in the online full-stack web development program. I went from knowing very little HTML, to being able to create full-stack web applications. I wasn't able to afford to quit my job, so I loved the flexibility of being able to go at my own pace. Since I was working full time, it took me longer than most (15 months), but I appreciated that I didn't feel rushed. The curriculum was set up in such a great way, it built upon the previous lessons and taught you the nitty gritty before you learned the "easy" way to do it. This course is hard for a reason, you learn the ins and outs of coding and apply it to real life situations (pushing all your labs and projects to Github). I couldn't speak high enough regards to Flatiron, everyone I interacted with was passionate about coding, and only wants you to succeed. I enjoyed my time with the instructors as well as my career coach. As I was on my final project, I slowly started to apply for jobs. I went on several interviews as I was finishing up my project, and before I even graduated I had an offer for my dream job.  If you are passionate about coding and have the discipline this is the perfect program for you.

    I've dabbled with Udemy and codecademy, but this felt like the first set of really pointed and effective python / javascript tutorials I've ever come across. I got semi hooked on advancing through lessons; it was all presented in a fun and engaging way. You get the impression they know how these technologies are being leveraged in the workplace today.

    Flatiron was one of the best experiences I'we had in a long while. It was very challenging and also very fun for me. The instructors were great, the curriculum was tough, and the people that I've met there were nothing less then amazing.

    Everybody there makes sure to explain anything you are having troubles with, even in the middle of lectures the instructors would break and ask if there was anything unclear, or even if you interupt them while they are teaching they will take their time with you and explain everything.

    After you graduate the career services and your own career coach that Flatiron provides, make sure you are ready to start searching by helping you in any way they can, which includes writing emails, coming up with a good elevator pitch, and writing up your resume. They also look for posible job opportunities and help spread out the word about you (they send your resume to employers). But they can only do so much, It's up to you to learn and do your best in the search ahead, and impress employers with your knowledge.

    The only thing that I would add to this amazing experience and make it better, are better chairs for students, other than that my overall experience was awesome! I feel like I definitely made the right choice.

    I found the prep work assigned prior to my technical interview to be engaging and pedagogically sound.  The learn.co platform for Jupyter notebooks, integrated with Github, is the best coding interface I've used on a website.  It was great to be able to ask (and answer!) questions in a dedicated forum for the course or on a more general Slack channel.

    I graduated from the online full stack web development course, and now I'm working for the Flatiron School in person as a Technical Coaching Fellow. I learned a ton from the course, and got a lot of value from periodic code reviews from instructors on projects. Having studied to become a teacher before getting into code, I have a great opportunity now to combine the two, and do what Iove. I'm proud to have graduated from the Flatiron School, and I'm even more proud to work for them now, and help as many students as I can to learn and reach their potential.

    Attending Flatiron School was the best decision I have ever made. The discovery that coding is my passion and destined career path came long delayed, after I had graduated with a degree and pursued a career in finance. The idea that I could transition into the tech world through a "bootcamp" within a matter of months as opposed to going back to school was truly unbelievable and unrealistic. However, after due diligence of research on coding bootcamps and discovering that this is in fact a thing that people do...I decided it was worth a shot and began extending my research to find the right program for me. 

    After several days of debating between several different programs within NYC, I finally chose Flatiron's Online Web Developer Immersive course. This decision was mainly influenced by financial and logistical factors. Firstly, I could not afford to quit my job to attend a full-time on-campus course, so an online self-paced program was ideal. Further, the cost of this program was absolutely unbeatable. I compare to App Academy, which was the first program I looked into and almost ended up joining, that averaged to a cost of $17,000. In total, Flatiron School ended up costing me less than $3000 and it was the best $3000 ever spent. 

    I ended up finishing the course in just a little over 3 months, but this was a result of committing 45+ hours a week on-top of my full-time job. This may sound crazy...committing this much time to a course on top of a full-time job, but I attribute my ability to do this fully to Flatiron and the way that they design their curriculum. It never felt like a chore to me and I truly enjoyed going through the coursework. I would spend 8+ straight hours going through the coursework not even realizing how much time had passed. 

    That said, it must be noted that the course was certainly very challenging. There were moments where I almost thought that it was too hard and that I wasn't cut out for this career path after all. However, the support/guidance of the online instructors always shut these doubts down as they were always able to help me work through whatever learning rut I was in and I was always able to get over each hurdle and continue through the progression of the course. 

    The online instructor assistance was very effective. There were times that I would have to wait in a queue for a screenshare in order to get assistance on whatever issue I was experiencing, but I never felt that I had to wait an unreasonable amount of time. The instructors always remained on the screenshare/call until my issue was resolved and questions were answered. They also made sure to guide me to discovering a resolution/answer on my own, rather than just telling me the answer which in my personal opinion is the best way to learn. 

    Now to the most important part..how much I learned and how it translated to getting an actual job as a developer. Well for starters, I went from not knowing a single coding language or anything to do with coding at all, to being able to build a robust web application on my own, with a React/Redux front-end and Rails backend API in three months. Even so, upon reaching this success endpoint, I still wasn't sure what this meant as it relates to getting hired. 

    Initially the job search process was a little bit discouraging. It seemed like almost every developer job I came across was a senior role, requesting candidates with 3+ years of experience. However, I didn't let this hinder my process and just applied for any opportunity that I could. And with that....I landed my first role before I had even officially graduated from Flatiron School, with an $85k salary. 

    My first role (which I am still currently in), is actually a temp-to-hire position (I was hired as a 'short-term-employee'). The idea here is that bootcamp grads are a "risky hire", so it is common for these grads to be hired on a contract-to-perm basis in order to be vetted for their skills/knowledge. This is a completely understandable thought-process/strategy, and much much better than the scenario I have read countless times on forums discussing coding bootcamps, which suggest that most tech camps won't even read the resume of a bootcamp grad and that bootcamp grads are not taken seriously. These claims are completely false; while I have no doubt that there are tech companies out there that will throw away a resume of a bootcamp grad, there are also many many that won't. In fact, the company that I work for, which is very small (about 30 people total), has two other Flatiron grads currently working there!

    All things considered, my experience at Flatiron was nothing short of ideal. To be able to completely change my career within a matter of months, without taking a pay cut, without spending thousands of dollars on coursework and without ever going through a state of unemployment is a bit unfathomable but this is the exact scenario that I lived through. That said, I must say that this is NOT for everyone. I believe that I am able to share this success story because I already came from a fairly analytical background and while I did not have any experience coding, my prior job involved a lot of financial modeling in Excel and a lot of analytical thinking/problem solving. I believe these skills are very transferable to coding as being a good coder in my opinion has less to do with knowing a coding language and more to do with one's thought process and knowing how to think analytically and problem-solve. This is a learned skill, certainly, but it comes naturally more to some than others. And with that I would strongly suggest anyone considering a coding bootcamp to be sure that coding is right for them, because if it is not, it would be unrealistic to expect the same successful outcome, which would have little to do with Flatiron School itself and more so with the individual's ability to master the coursework. 

    In sum, I honestly have nothing negative to say about Flatiron School and highly recommend to anyone that's confident about their decision to transition their career into tech. For the first time in my life I can actually say I love what I do. I look forward to going to work every day and I enjoy every minute I spend at work. This is a very very foreign thought to me as it comes after years of being miserable in my career and beginning to accept the idea that work is meant to be an unhappy place. I owe it to Flatiron for changing my life and giving me the opportunity to finally be happy in my career and be exactly where I belong.

    I found The Flatiron School's Bootcamp Prep course to be a great introduction to Javascript, Ruby and HTML. The course is free and there is a very strong community that helps you with any questions you may have. I found the support extremely helpful as they are able to screenshare so you really understand how to solve any issues that may come up. I do not know of any other bootcamps that offer such a supportive resource for everyone for free. This was a big factor in me ultiatmely deciding to apply to their onsite immersive bootcamp.

    After finishing the prep course you are able to build a command line interface program that plays tic-tac-toe and another to play a rock dodging game. I was able to take what I learned from this prep course and program a Towers of Hanoi game in the command line interface on my own which was very cool. The javascript I learned also allowed me to do a little bit of web scraping from websites. 

    I highly recommend this course for those just starting out. You'll learn a great deal of basic programming skills across two different languages.

    I've been accepted to the Flatiron School in-person NYC software engineering program and am super excited to begin the course in the coming weeks.

    I participated in their accelerated bootcamp prep program (ABCP) as part of my application preparation, and then completed some additional modules from their regular, non-accelerated bootcamp course as well. The ABCP course was amazing in that it included live classroom sessions with a really great Flatiron instructor. You could either attend it in-person at their NYC campus, or participate remotely (which I did). The learning material both online and in the live classes was comprehensive and thorough, especially considering how tough the very early stages of learning coding fundamentals can be. I went on to complete some supplementary learning on my own after the prep course, and I found that what I learned in the prep course really helped me there.

    The admissions process was amazing. At every stage I received *very* timely responses, from my initial application submission, to scheduling my interviews, and admission and scholarship decisions. Both the interviewers were tremendously kind and helpful. The whole experience made me even more excited about Flatiron's culture and approach towards collaboration in learning.

    When I had first encountered Flatiron School, through social media, I was a bit skeptical.  I had taken a programming course or two during high school and college.  I considered programming to be too complex and unrelatable to be understood.  I signed up for Flatiron School's free content out of a renewed interest in programming and, in part, whim. (Their advertisement was spiritually compelling.)  

    After diving into JavaScript, I was impressed by how the content was explained, the logical order in which it was presented, the analogies they used that made complex concepts appear relatable and the integration of those concepts into coding challenges.  From then on, I was hooked.  And so, I applied to all of their free content.  

    As of now, I have completed all of their free content, aside from Swift & iOS (I recently purchased my first Mac.)  I find it amazing that Flatiron School made all of this great content available for free.  Furthermore, they regularly host free On-Campus Study Sessions, Technical Talks & a showcase of Senior Projects.  Ever so often, they host a Q&A session with a Panel of Former Graduates.  The course content and the quality of people this school attracts convinced me that Flatiron School is something great that I'd love to be a part of.

    I have been recently accepted to their On-Campus Immersive Software Engineering Program.  It's an exciting time for me and I expect nothing but great things to come.
