    Data Science Bootcamp Prep

     

    This Bootcamp Preps you for admission to the "Data Science" course.

    Basically it gave me an idea of what i would need to know before i took the plunge.

    -- Basic Python, Plotting graphs etc.

    -- Derivatives, linear equations, etc.

    I was amazed with how powerful and easy it was to work with python, using open source libraries.

    Also helped me brush up on Middle/high School math.

    Changed my life!

    I simply had an amazing experience at the Flatiron School. I had recently graduated from an art school where I had developed a passion for programming. While I was able to pick up some fundamentals on my own, there was still a lot to know to be able to work in the industry. I had a lot of doubts that someone from a non-technical background would be able to land a job as a Software Engineer. Flatiron seems to be churning out a ton of great entry level engineers at an unbelievable pace.

    Awesome courses!

    I just finished the prep course for the Data Science bootcamp immersive. I had a great experience with their prep courses. They explained a duanting topic very easily and made it all very simple to understand. I particulary enjoyed how gradient descent was explained through real life examples. Their prep course was a lot of fun! Their simplification of daunting topics and their reputation to help you get started with your carear was the main factors I decided to apply for Flatiron School. ...

    Data Science Class


    For context, I have just recently been accepted to the Flatiron Data Science class and have no background in coding at all. I have completed the data science bootcamp prep and about 2/3 of the other bootcamp prep class. As coding is new to me I had tried several online intro classes (datacamp, codeacademy, udemy) and the Learn.co online class Flatiron has was by far the best. The courses really explained not just what was going on in the classes but why it is occurring which is very h...

    Bootcamp Prep course

    If you are familiar with Udemy or other online learning portals, you'll find that there is usually a disconnect between the learning and your working through the materials.

    What Flatiron has done with learn is pretty amazing in that you can use their IDE or your dev environment to fork, clone, pull all the labs, test the labs, and submit the labs for review. 

    The written materials are very easy to follow, and those materials in conjunction with the realtime feedback of the ...

    Worth Every Second

    This program not only gave me the knowledge and confidence to chase my goals of becoming a developer, it gave me a network of individuals - from my cohort to instructors to other alumni - to help me along the way. It seems crazy to learn as much as you do in 15 weeks, but you really do. Now, it's no lie that you have to put the work in which they tell you from day one, but if you are willing to immerse yourself for just 15 weeks, then you are sure to come out on the otherside confident in ...

    Amazing embark on an exciting career

    I had the pleasure of beginning Flatiron's in-person immersive bootcamp last summer and then switching to the online two months into the immersive (due to personal conflict) Flatiron was an amazing experience and think really highly of this program. It was a great experience having done both. Of course, the in-person immersive is a lot more demanding because of the 3 month time period. The modules go back quickly and you are expected to keep up. Every end of a module they'd give you a prac...

    Helped me get my first dev job

    I had spent more than 10 years in SEO prior to Flatiron and was scared to make the jump. I feel a lot better now that I have my first job. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. The Web Dev Immersive is hard, but having a cohort full of people you can rely on and instructors that care helps you push through. Career services seals the deal. Worth every dang penny.

    Amazing experience!

    I will never have another 15 weeks like those I spent at Flatiron, nor will my life be the same after graduating from the program!  The school draws together all the best aspects of learning-- the curriculum is very challenging, but achievable; the school's culture promotes friendship, collaboration, and connections; the material and instruction is relevant now and also prepares you for a lifetime of learning.  Lastly a shoutout to Career Services who holds your hand throughout the job sea...

    A great way to start coding!

    This is probably the best intro prep material out there (especially as a free resource) that let's you get started immediately. The Learn platform comes equipped with a terminal and editor with the lesson plan available to the side that you can follow. It feeds into the online (and immersive) web developer program, where you can continue the program. 

    The quality of the instructional material is top-notch and community based, which tries to mimic real-life, where you can see people...

    Online Web Development Program Review

    I was part of the Online Full Stack Web Development Program. Before going to Flatiron School, I had done some basic Codecademy tutorials. I also enrolled in one intro to programming course at a community college just before I got accepted to Flatiron School and finished it while also doing Flatiron School. Overall, my experience with this program was great, and I truly feel that I would not be where I am today without the guidance of the program. 

    What I loved about this program ...
