    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...

    Pros:

    • Highly competent and passionate teaching staff; they really cared about your progress in the class and are experts in their domain
    • Optimal balance between class-level and individualized attention
    • Excellent cirriculum, tailored well for those without coding experience, and paced well for those who breeze through the material as well as who need a little extra help

    Flatiron School

    I graduated from Flatiron in 2015, and have been working as a developer since then. The curriculum and caliber of the teachers was amazing - I can't speak highly enough about how great the learning experience was. I've programmed professionally in 6 languages since graduating so I really appreciate that the curriculum focused on programming fundamentals instead of a week here and there on whatever the hot technology of the time is.

    My biggest gripe was that I don't live near NYC,...

    Total immersion, you get out what you put in

    I attended Flatiron's web development course in the winter of 2016, and landed my first professional engineering gig a little over a month after graduation. At Flatiron, you are getting a lot more than 3 months of web development instruction. The network of friends and colleagues that directly resulted from my time there has been invaluable in every sense of the word ever since, and I draw on my Flatiron experience daily to inform my career decisions and make myself a better programmer.

    Landed a Job in 10 Days

    13 weeks of hard work that paid off in literally 10 days. I landed a job as a software engineer at 10k above the average.
    The classes are challenging, exhausting and a serious amount of fun.
    The Flatiron community is one of the best I have ever been a part of. 
    The support in the job hunt is unparalleled.
    Complete the pre-work to decide if programming is for you, but the cost and the work are absolutely worth it if you can put in the 12 weeks.

    Great overall experience

    If you are looking to switch careers and have a passion for coding and problem solving, this is a great option. I went here in 2016 and it was intense, as advertized. But it was really impressive: after even a couple weeks of the course, I was already able to put together pretty decent web applications. About half the course is focused on Ruby and Rails, and about half on JavaScript.

    They do a great job of constructing cohorts with a wide range of backgrounds. Everyone got along ...
