    The dream is real

    Tomorrow I start my new job in software development. If you had told me how far I'd come in a year I would have said you were a liar.

    The fact is: the promises made are possible to acheive. Flatiron/Learn will give you a road map, but you have to walk the path.

    That said, the assistance in learning and in job hunting that I recieved from The Flatiron School was invaluable. My career coach was a god send who helped me keep my head up when I thought for sure I'd failed.

    Amazing Platform to Transition Careers

    My goal was to transition from a career without any programming knowledge to being a full stack developer building great things.  With the Flatiron School's help -- mission accomplished.  Below are a few things I really loved about the Online Campus (previously called the "Learn" program, when I first joined).

    Learn At Your Own Pace:  Rather than a 12-week intense immersive, I was able to learn full stack technologies over 8-months at my own pace.

    Recommendation

    Learn Verified was such a good fit for me! At the time I knew I wanted to change my career by learning how to program, I first started teaching myself using various online resources and books. With so much to learn, it often felt overwhelming and frankly discouraging. I started to hunt for programs to take a more structured approach to my learning. I interviewed with and considered several in-person bootcamps, in addition to going back to school for a CS degree, bu...

    Loved Learn.co. Made learning to code so much fun.

    I recently graduated from Flatiron School's online program Learn.co and will be starting my new career as a web developer tomorrow.

    I spent a lot of time researching different learning options after completing treehouse, and codecademy when I came across Learn. I immediately started the free trial and fell in love. I loved that I could go at my own pace and learn at any hour of the day. I was working full time as an accountant and didn't want to quit and relocate to attend a trad...

    Cancelled for Full Refund after 2 Weeks of Paid Membership

    Thankfully I read the Terms and Conditions. Anyone can cancel within 14 days of their first payment for a full refund.

     

    I did Learn.co Online for the free 2 weeks, enjoyed it, got some help when I got stuck, then paid $1000/month ($750 with the discount) for the "real course".

    I requested a full refund after 12 days. I have done Team Treehouse Ruby on Rails, Codeacademy Ruby on Rails & HTML & CSS, 25% of FreeCodeCamp.com, a Java course on Udemy by a C...

    Falsified Job Placement Reporting, Disorganized Curriculum, all for the low, low price of $15,000

     

    Are you seeking a career change? Have you been lured by promises of better compensation and opportunity? Don't be fooled by individuals from the placement-team who will tout falsified job placement percentages as evidence of better professional outcomes. The entire team at Flatiron School, from executive and management to placements and instructors, have absolutely no idea what's going on, and as long as they're getting your money by selling you on the hope of a new career, the...

    The Real Deal

    For perspective, began in November 2015 and am now nearly finished with the curriculum.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience with the Flatiron School's Learn Verified Program.  The platform of learn.co itself is great.  From day one, everything you are doing with your time is real, actual work.  You always work in a real dev environment, and push all your code to Github.  I view this as a mandatory feature for any program that claims to prepare you for a job though.

    Zero Code Review!

    I felt like they could have done a better job with filtering the job leads they had, providing a more conducive environment for learning (way too loud) and provided regular in-depth code review.

    Zero Code Review!

    This is an honest and sincere review with the only intention to inform others about a very real experience.  

    I had zero code review.  ZERO.  I asked for it many times, never got it.

    My classmates were either completely drunk or 100% independent didn't-want-to-work-with-anyone types, except for one.  I am still friends with the one classmate that wasn't like this.

    This place was extremely noisy the entire time, and the teachers regularly would get a TA to take...

    A good alternative to people with IT background

    This was originally posted in my blog.

    I began searching for online coding bootcamps recently, a good alternative to going to a major city to attend a coding bootcamp in person. Not everyone is like me who has family in a major city, in my case NYC. Rent alone can drain a person’s bank account, much more if that person needs to quit his or her job to attend an intensive school 60 hours a week, which is the norm for bootcamps.

    Who should attend this program?

    An Excellent Tour Guide For A New Future

    I spent about 2 months teaching myself web development before I started with Flatiron's Online Learn Verified program. I looked at every online coding bootcamp possible, and just as I was about to go with a different program I stumbled upon Learn Verified. So I clicked on the link and started their free intro to ruby course. Needless to say 4 months later and I am about to finish the course. 

    The course covers a wide variety of subjects from Ruby, Sinatra, Rails, Github, JavaScr...

    Highly recommend

    Over the last several years, I have worked with multiple online programs. In each case, I have found myself frustrated for one reason or another. My experience with Learn Verified has been a welcomed change. The curriculum is clear and concise, while still presenting a challenge. The lab work provides a valuable platform to practice what you have learned. The entire program is well scaffolded, delivering lessons step-by-step, culminating in projects that demonstrate the bigger ...
