    Amazing Experience and Community

    Flatiron School completely changed my life- in less than a year I went from nothing to employed developer. I didn't have any technical background but had tried a bunch of online courses and moocs before joining. They were good but never helped me put it together. The learning experience on Learn was amazing - it finally halped me put everything together. The community was also incredible- interacting with other students made learning a lot more fun.

    The best part was definitely t...

    AMAZING

    Flatiron School changed my life. Literally. I am a graduate of the second semester of students from the Flatiron School. Prior to my semester I had absolutely ZERO technical background. I graduated from a liberal arts college and was an English Literature major and a French Literature minor. I love to read and write and play sports and do other creative work (like bake and do crafts projects). I dove into coding because I wanted to be able to work for an online blog or magazine from an edi...

    Huge age discrimination

    Everything went fine in the applicatioin process until they found out I was over 40. Then they were very rude and condescending towards me. So much for diversity. All their talk of bieng able to teach anyone to code is just marketing hype. They are more interested in being politicaly correct and catering to females and minorities as they are given preferential treatement in the applicaiton process. Being over 40 I am definitely an underepresented minority but they clearly discriminate agai...

    Totally dissatisfied

    My take on the Flatiron School

    I was a student at The Flatiron School for their immersive iOS program and I do not recommend this school.  I had to make sure I graduated before I left this review because if they found out that I wrote a negative review while I was a student, there would have been retribution against me and they would have made my life miserable.

    The job placement numbers are complete BS

    They make misleading st...

    Take the free course, then move on

    I really enjoyed the free Intro to Ruby course they use as a preview for the full $1500/mo course. Actually, that price changed three times in the 3 months I was a "Learner" (it was initially $1000/mo, then split into $500 or $1000, then raised to $1500). 

    The Slack community is enjoyable with fun and hard working people chatting throughout the day. And the Flatiron founder Avi was quite active.

    Unlike the free course, there are no video lectures for each lesson in the ...
