    The best online program I've tried

    I've been enrolled in online full stack developer program. I've been a super advocate of the program to anyone I know who wants to make a transition. 

    I've personally been doing some dev stuff for many years but never got a proper education. I love the way the online program is taught, the flow completely makes sense. I've even learned new things within topics I thought I knew. It's given me a lot of confidence.

    The program will definitely require you to commit. It's no...

    It's the real deal

    Flatiron School is the way modern education and job retraining should be done.

    Let me preface my review with a little background on myself:
    I attended Flatiron School after having a successful career in another field, so I approached it as a bridge into the modern economy while building off of my previous work experience. I also didn't pay for the program -- I attended via the NYC Tech Talent Pipeline which awards full-ride scholarships to New Yorkers, so I have no costs to ...

    Best life investment

    The Flatiron school changed my life. I learned the basics of programming on my own and once I clearly became passionate about it i decided to power up my knowledge and went to the Flatiron School. I think what makes the school so different is that people there are truly passionate about coding and see it as a lifelong craft. I thank all the people I've learned with. 

    Learn love code <3

    Great first step to become a coder!

    I completed the full-stack web development program in the spring of 2016. This program was a great way to learn the fundamental concepts of web development and how to build a full web application from scratch.  The instructors I had were very talented (I still sometimes use one of the TA’s blogs for reference at work) and more importantly- extremely dedicated (I still get advice from them once in a while) . From them, I learned not only technical skills, but also the ability t...

    A great first step to a new career

    I graduated from the iOS program in the summer of 2014. I've been working at an awesome mobile agency building iOS apps for a wide range of clients for the past 2 1/2 years. Before applying to Flatiron, I knew that I needed to fully commit to an in-person program if I wanted to become a developer. Learning how to program part-time by yourself is very difficult and there's a tendency to not stick to deadlines. After just over two months at Flatiron, I had what I thought then was a solid gra...

    Best Career Move I've Made to Date

    I can honestly say that the Flatiron School was one of the best professional decisions I've made and is up there as one of the best ways to learn relevant software development techniques--so much so that I'm considering going back and taking the Web Development Intensive.

    I made a pretty drastic career shift about 3 years ago. I went from working in magazines to working as a software developer and I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, I wouldn't have been able to make that swit...

    Kick-start your love affair with coding

    It was as a Product Manager in SF that I got really intrigued by these magical creatures called developers. They used said magic to build things, seemingly out of nowhere, that real people used to improve their lives, to communicate, to buy stuff. I wanted to be able to create as well

    The right way to learn software development

    I was a student for class 0 at the Flatiron school. Attending Flatiron was one of the best experiences of my life and set me up for success in my career. At Flatiron I gained the skills I needed to land my first job as a software engineer immediately after graduating. I’m now starting to transition into leadership roles and I still find myself leveraging the lessons I learned at Flatiron school every day.

    Life Changing

    When I received my scholarship to the first Brooklyn cohort, I had been unemployed for over a year and the purpose and excitement of the Flatiron School really turned things around for me.  The instructors are engaged and the curriculum is engrossing.

    I am a Engineering Director at my current company, and I have specifically tried to recruit more Flatiron alums as I know the quality of student is high and the curriculum is excellent preparation for a career in web development.

    From the Inaugural Class

    I learned not only how to to code, but to love coding. Flatiron School planted a seed of passion inside of me that has carried me far. Often times, colleagues are in disbelief when they realize how few years I have been a programmer. Flatiron School provided me not only with the foundation to successfully attain a junior programmer position, but also the tools to continue learning.

    Since graduation, I have interviewed other bootcamp graduates. The difference in preparation is sta...

    Go to Flatiron

    I was in the second web development batch at Flatiron and it was easily the best decision I've ever made. It seems like this sentiment is a common theme (reading through the other reviews), which doesn't surprise me at all. Before Flatiron, I had been working in SaaS sales, but always wanted to be the person building something from scratch and making my own ideas me to life.

    Flatiron exceeded my expectations.

    Flatiron exceeded my expectations. My review is more about how I experienced the Flatiron approach, setting and community, and less about the technical curriculum which I think is not so different from other bootcamps.

    I came in with basic to none programming knowledge and left the program feeling confident and inspired to learn more (also with more love for coding). I did not regard myself as a highly skilled programmer by the end of the bootcamp, but for sur...
