    Flatiron School Review

    I attended the Flatiron School's Immersive Software Engineering program from May to August 2017. The experience was great, and I am happy to say that now as of the end of November I have just completed my first day as a Software Engineer.

    The program is very challenging but Flatiron school does a great job to make sure you are supported throughout. The education was great, and the style of teaching really worked for me. They really do a great job at changing things around quickly...

    The Future of Education

    I graduated in Feb of 2017 and was able to land a job teaching intro computer science. Aside from assorted classes online I hadn't had any previous CS experience. If you're thinking about Flatiron, go for it. The most important thing you'll learn is how to learn new things rapidly and effeciently. This isn't like college where half of your lecture is asleep or on their phones. 3 months of 8-12 hours a day, depending on how hard you're willing to work, is far more effecient and effective th...

    Really enjoyed the Bootcamp Prep Course

    I found the Bootcamp Prep Course incredibly informative, easy-to-grasp, and quite engaging. It provided me with a strong base of knowledge and allowed me to decide if programming was what I really wanted to pursue. Overall, I greatly enjoyed the Integrated Development Environment that Flatiron has created and found it incredibly effective in introducing and solidifying essential programming concepts.

    Good prep course for bootcamps/technical interviews

    Went through the interview process with a couple of top-rated bootcamps using Flatiron's Learn.co platform.  It should most definitely prepare you for any/most technical interviews. Even more so if you couple it with another resource. A couple things I noticed:

    1.  There is someone to help you at almost any time of the day via chat.  You also get connected to a network of people working on the same assignments. If you ever get stuck, there will always be an expert around to help ...

    Great Free Prep Course!

    I had been learning javascript for a little over a year when I started my application with Flatiron. They have a bootcamp prep course on their website that is really helpful in getting more comfortable with programming. The learn IDE platform is such a wonderful tool that is really helpful with getting your familiar with the concepts and real time application. You can either choose the Ruby track or Javascript track. It is challenging enough to teach you to be able to read errors (which is...

    Good complement to CS education

    I was a Computer Science major at a very small liberal arts school, so my education was heavy on theory, and light on actual implementation. After graduating, I got a dev job, and quickly realized that my degree hadn't done all that much to prepare me for an actual job. For instance, I was never taught how to use git, or any means of source control! I worked there for a year, not really loving it (spending a lot of time maintaining some very old Java code), before speaking to a friend (fel...

    Lead Designer & Developer

    As someone who does well with detailed lecture and written informational instruction, the Flatiron School's teaching methodology, structure, and their use of the Learn platform was ideal for my learning. My background was in project management and art history (I have an MA in archaeology and art history) so the detailed prework and information Learn lessons were very helpful for someone so outside the field. Full disclosure: I got into AppAcademy, and Hackbright but was incredibly turn...

    Great Experience

    Graduated from Flatiron's NYC Web Development program about 3 months ago and it was definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made. The educational experience and community was incredibly well put together and effective. 

    It took me very little time to find a job (although there was plenty of effort on my end for that) and I feel very well equipped in my new work environment from the instruction I received at Flatiron. 

    I strongly recommend Flatiron to anyone who...

    The best decision of my life.

    Going to the Flatiron School was one of the best choices I have ever made. I graduated from their NYC Web Developer program a couple of weeks ago, and ever since then, the Career Services has been super helpful and effective in making sure that I get paid to write professional code. The curriculum covers the latest techniques and the most useful skills which make you as a professional programmer.

    The Right Decision

    Quitting my job to attend Flatiron was a big decision. I did as much research as I could in advance about bootcamps - attending events, speaking to alums and getting opinions from working developers. It seemed that everyone and everything kept pointing back to Flatiron. On Day 1 I was completely overwhelmed, but by Day 5 I was confident that I was doing the right thing. I couldn't believe how smart and personable my colleagues were. Working in different groups was actually enjoya...
