    Flatiron School - Denver Campus

    I want to preface this by saying I have no experience with other campuses, but I can speak confidently about my experience at Flatiron in Denver, CO.

    With some trepidation, I enrolled in September 2020. It is the best decision I could've made -- do you enjoy learning and aren't afraid to ask questions? Do you like to engage in theory and practice? Do you want to be taught how to learn effectively so you can apply to new languages you want to learn in the future? Do you want to joi...

    Best Coding Bootcamp In Every Way!

    Flatiron School is the best coding Bootcamp ever!
    If you do your part, you won't regret it!

    In the fall of 2019, I enrolled in their full-stack Software Engineering program. I attended their Brooklyn campus in Dumbo. They taught us how to build cutting-edge, full-fledged applications using Ruby, Ruby-on-Rails, JavaScript, React, and Redux. By the time I was ready to graduate, I was able to build a fully functional, full-stack application!

    Flatiron School SE Immersive Summer 2020 Review

     I attended Flatiron School's full-stack software engineering immersive program from May-August in 2020 at the Denver campus remotely. The Denver instructional staff is top-notch and extremely knowledgable. They have created an extremely positive educational environment and welcoming campus culture. They don't make you pay $ to repeat learning Modules and they don't grade your projects which allows you the freedom to develop whatever interests you in each learning Mod. They cater to ever...

    My Overall Experience

    Flatiron School helped me develop my engineering skills due to their daily deadlines, constant pair-programming, and their lessons on working autonomously. I was a newbie to coding when I started the program so I was suffering from major imposter syndrome, but despite that, every single person in their staff made me feel so comfortable and provided me with guidance and positivity throughout the whole program. Being in this program also taught me how to learn and be more independent in te...

     MY EXPERIENCE AT FLATIRON (JULY 2020)

    Full Time Software Engineering
    I would not recommend Flatiron to anyone, period.
    My Student/Admissions Rep had terrible communication skills (which is not acceptable) and would take days and days to answer 1 email after asking again after 2 or 3 days and then CC'ing the general info@flatiron email to try to get an answer. This went on the entire 3 months of correspondence leading up to the ...

    Beyond Grateful for the Flatiron School Community

    Enrolling in the Flatiron School boot camp was probably the best decision I've made, both financially and personally. The boot camp does cost a fair amount of money, but now I'm making way more than I would've before and earlier than if I had gone the self-paced route. I originally wanted to pursue teaching (high school English), but the education field requires a lot of work to get into for very low pay and not a ton of support. Pretty shortly after graduating, I landed a role as a Coho...

    Be ready to work hard, be ready for a long job search

    They won't do the job for you, you need to work hard on your own, but if you know what you want, go for it! I met a lot of interesting people and gained a ton of priceless experience. For 15 weeks I learned more then I've tried to learn online after work for 3 years. Flatiron school is not the only option, but it was my choice and I don't regret it.

    UX Design Immersive

    My experience with Flatiron is overall positive. I really enjoyed the course curriculum and the structure of course (6week online individual work, 6week online group work, 5 weeks in-person group work, 4 weeks client work, 3 weeks portfolio.)

    Missed the Mark on Career Svces - Outdated Curriculum

    I joined Flatiron School SE track with much enthusiasm. I found the instructors to be knowledgeable and willing to help you if you had questions. I completed the program on a fast track (faster than my cohort) and have my portfolio finished with top notch projects. 

    The curriculum (2019-2020) seemed a bit too basic, repetitive tasks and exercises. I did raise the issue of lessons even repeating themselves and even grammatical errors/bugs in them. It also did not cover crucial soft...

    Full-time online data science bootcamp

    Overall, I had a fantastic experience with Flatiron School. The program enabled me to get a data science job that ticked all my boxes. I was able to make a dramatic career transition (during a pandemic, no less!) from academia/non-profits to tech thanks to this program.

    Background: When I was applying to bootcamps, I already had a PhD (in a humanities discipline) and lots of data science and programming tutorials under my belt. I chose Flatiron School because the ...

    Compassionate Supportive Instruction

    I graduated from the online self-paced software engineering program.  To me, Flatiron's strength is its support structure.  The school bends over backwards to provide multiple channels of support.  I was originally slated to join the in person program in Seattle, but switched to the online program because it made more sense with my family.  I was nervous about a lack of support structure in the online program, but that proved far from the case.  

    There was an abundance of instruct...

    A worthwhile endeavor

    I wasn't sure what to expect coming out of Flatiron School but I can now say that I have the skills to fully build and deploy web applications (if relatively simple ones). Beyond that, I am confident that I have the skills to learn what wasn't covered in the curriculum and keep up with the ever-changing world of technology. I am now more self-reliant and am a better learner, which makes a world of difference.
