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.

    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.

    Flatiron's Bootcamp Prep was great! I only got about halfway thru since I eventually got accepted into their immersive program and have been working on prepwork since.

    I've done other bootcamp prep, and honestly, Flatiron's was the best. I'm not just saying that. They had great support when I was stuck, the directions were clear, the user interface was user friendly and easy to work with, and they did a great job of prepping me for what was to come. I mean, I got into the program and worked hard, so they must be doing something right. I've had a few Ruby friends complain about the drudgery of learning JS, but I actually enjoyed it via Flatiron's Bootcamp Prep.

    I used my notes to build a basic website for my wife on her birthday. Minimal knowledge and embedded html and css in the same file, but nonetheless, I had several friends and family members impressed with the site...all from the info I learned in the bootcamp prep.

    All my experience with Access Labs has been great so far and I'm super excited to be starting the Software Engineering Immersive in a few weeks! Highly recommend!!!!

    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.
