    Flatiron was the best decision of my adult life

    If you have no prior tech experience and are looking to make a jump in your professional life, Flatiron is the place to start. It was stressful and a lot of work, but if you have the time and resources to commit for 15 weeks I am confident that you will come out an incredibly desirable job candidate for a variety of positions across the tech industry. I was able to land a job on a government contract with a starting salary of $90K in less than two months of graduating, more money than I ...

    It Works But It's Not Easy...

    This bootcamp can change your life, but be ready devote your entire life to it for 15 weeks (and more). Having done my research, I believe this to be one of the more well-rounded, comprehensive DS curriculums out there. As great as this sounds, more learning material = more hours. Period. Be ready to spend well beyond 40 hours per week learning concepts, practicing code, completing projects, and blogging. Be aware that the bootcamp's standards for passing each module and graduating are l...

    NOT FOR BEGINNERS

    If you are looking to start a career in Software Development do not start here! Look into other programs that teach the basics. I was informaed that Flatiron would be able to go from where I was (beginner) to being "job ready" by the end of the course... for me this was not accurate. Majority of my time was spent on Google/ Youtube trying to find tutorials or additional information to grasp a basic understanding on what they were teaching me. I asked for additional support such as a tutor/...

    Tough Prep Work and Application Process, but excellent staff

    I recently got into Flatiron's Engineering Immersive course. I had researched other courses and found Flatiron to be the best fit. Beware the prep work before the interview is about 100 hours. Once you pass your technical interview, which is where you show the code that you used to solve one of their labs in the interview prep work. You explain how you got that answer, and then pair code with your interviewer. They got back to me promptly that I got in. Once you get in there is another 100...

    50/50 Good and Bad Experiance

    The Data Science In-Person was really helpful. Basic to intermediate skills/knowledge are broken down chronologically and people with no background are really set up to be entry level data scientists. The career coaching, AKA job placement, looks promising with detailed support and steps to secure a job. However, for people looking to hone their skills and already at beginner to intermediate level, this is not the place to go to. You are generally looked down upon, verbatim 'None of you ar...

    Amazing program, amazing people

    I took the online full stack web development program and had a great experience.  I was brand new to coding when I enrolled and the program and now I can say that I am a full stack web developer! In addition to a great curriculum, the people at Flatiron are absolutely amazing.  I never felt alone and was always able to find the support I needed to get through the program.  From the education coaches to the technical coaches to the career coaches, everyone was friendly, encouraging and know...

    Online Flatiron Experience

    Like many others, I was very captivated by the heavy marketing campaign Flatiron school brought to the British shores. I was also tempted by their offer of 50% off for women taking the course and the fact that I could do the course online while I kept working. I was chuffed to be accepted and felt very positive after completing the bootcamp prep.

    However, after two months of the course I dropped out. These are my reasons.

    The "Learn" IDE platform is simply not up to scr...

    Disappointing Data Science Immersive - Poor Instructors and Incomplete Curriculum

    Participated in the first Data Science cohort. It started off strong, but quickly fell apart after the first module, when the material shifted from standard coding techniques that were adapted from the webdev course to more data/math focused topics. Our teacher was underqualified to be teaching us Data Science, and we received essentially zero feedback on our coursework throughout the 15 week program. I honestly do not believe the cirriculum was ready for launch, it felt w...

    Solid support from 'Hello, world' to 'Hello, new job'

    I am a CS grad who enrolled in Flatiron School’s Online Web Development Program. If your goal is to get an overview of Computer Science topics through this program, you’ll get that. But you will need to supplement your learning with material from elsewhere to really get grounded.

    That said, the team at Flatiron School has done a really good job of building a web development program that can take a student from no programming at all to building real web applications. You will Alwa...

    Applying to Software Engineering Immersive and Learn.co prep

    I was really pleased with how quick the process from applying to decision was. I heard back from my final technical interview within two days which I really appreciated for my own decision making. The bootcamp and interview prepwork available on learn.co was really fantastic and set me up well for the interview process. I am excited to get started with the coursework in january!

    Data Science Prep Course

    For me, the prep curriculum gave me a bridge from non-coding to adopting an engineer's mindset. I have a market research background and this course was rigorous and fit well with my sense of curiosity and desire for challenge. The lessons provided a foundation of understanding followed by stretch excersies. I think there were some bugs in the practice problems, but trouble shooting with the other students on Flatiron's chat and with Flatiron advisors was super rewarding.

    Flatiron Bootcamp Prep

    The coursework is very thorough and helpful. It really gets you prepared for the technical terms and skills you need before the course starts. I had a bit of a problem submitting my works, but the the instructors were very responsive and helpful when I ran into questions. Overall, I love the prep course!
