    Prep Work

    The prep work is a great introduction into Python because it's segmented by topics, and those topics are segmented to give your brain a break. And it's nice that all the topics build upon one another. For those coming from a not-so-technical background, this prep work is great because they explain the math concepts very well. And for those coming from a math background and/or little coding background this prep work is definitely doable and maybe even easy for you!

    Excellent Data Science Prep Course

    I took the online data science prep course and I totally enjoyed the experience and opportunity to learn. Getting used to developing small, targeted amounts of code using Python helped a lot. For all beginners, start with the online prep course to ensure your success and a new way of thinking. I really can't wait to start my online bootcamp.

    Prep work

    Going through the prep work before starting classes, I'm impressed with the thoroughness and breadth of the lessons. They're giving me a basis in Javascript, Ruby, Git, HTML and CSS, as well as BASH and the command line, with live chat assistance when I need it.

    There's even instructions to set up a Lubuntu virtual machine to do the labs, which is great for me because I'm not in a position to buy a Macbook yet.

    Great experience

    Currently I am taking a prep course with Flatiron School and absolutely enjoy the curriculum. The community is really supportive, not only instructors but also other students and even alumnis are out there to help you on every your step if you get stuck. Litterally every time if something is not clear you just post your question and it takes a couple of seconds for someone to get you unstuck. You dont feel alone on this journey and that's really important.

    Online Full Stack Web Development program

    My first and only experience with coding was through a past mentorship with my company, which helped me 'get my feet wet' and left me wanting to pursue web development. I found Flatiron's online program, which was perfect for my schedule and received the Women Take Tech scholarship to join the program. I always felt pushed during the program, yet supported- but not in a 'hand holding' way. You'll definietly get pushed into the deep end a lot, which mimics real world development!

    Bootcamp Prep course is interesting

    The bootcamp prep course is perhaps the most complete and wellrounded free online curriculum I've found in terms of the learning environment they've created. That being said, there are some gaps in their content and overall, the whole experience could be polished more for it to really shine. It is mainly self-led reading and labs. This means you can do it all on your own time, but it also means that there is limited interaction with typical "instructors".

    Admissions and bootcamp pre-work

    The admissions process at Flatiron was seamless - I really enjoyed talking with both of my interviewers (the first is a simple meet and greet, the second is a technical interview). I am brand-new to coding but after following the technical track for JavaScript, I felt that I was well prepared for the technical interview. The learn.co courses are of two types - purely informational, and coding labs. I feel that the information excels at explaining the basics - if you are brand-new, like me,...

    Flatiron Bootcamp Prep

    Coursework is very thorough and the videos are great too.  Wish there was a few more quizzes during certain sections to break up the reading and test what you've learned but the quizzes on there are great and the built in IDE for Learn is very useful. It took a second to get used to and set up but very easy to use once you understand it.  Overall, the best prep course I've done so far after trying out and paying for muitiple ones from other bootcamp courses.

    Enrolment process & interview prep course

    The enrolment/application process was smooth - the admissions team and interview instructors were helpful and friendly. I chose to do the interview and technical work in JavaScript. The Learn.co course is good enough, but perhaps could be better for someone brand new to coding like myself. The pacing for me personally was a little inconsistent, and the fact that certain lessons involve uninterupted blocks of text makes it a bit more difficult to absorb information compared to other online ...

    Prep work and enrollment process

    The enrollment process was pretty simple and straight forward. The prep work was great to prepare for the technical interview. The instructors doing the interview were kind and also helpful. All of my questions whether it was about the school or it was about the prep work were answered within minutes, great support from the staff at the school.

    Flat Iron prep work

    The experience itself is fine but would have been made far better if the Learn IDE worked properly. I use VS code and am acclimated to making things work together but this was a little sad. I understand there could be some bugs but I had to use the in browser option because they are essentially between builds and the atom build had a bunch of conflicts and issues. I would recommend everyone use either a repl.it on the side to test smaller parts of their code and to change the Learn IDE set...
