    It is always up to you

    I took this course in 2015 and it was such a great experience for me. I am an entrepreneur and did not take the course to become a developer. My goal was to learn how to make a MVP on my own and I succeeded it. Right after finishing the course, I self-learned Swift on my own and made a full functional iOS MVP with rails. I could even setup my server using Docker. A friend of my asked me if I knew any school that teaches Python but I recommended Flatiron school based on my actual experience...

    Best life and career decision I could have made

    I was a twenty-something female liberal arts major struggling to make something of myself in publishing. After dabbling in web design for years without making any real progress, I finally decided to take the leap and turn my hobby into my career by applying to and attending the in-person web immersive program at the Flatiron School in the fall of 2015. 

    It was easily the best decision I've ever made. The Flatiron School doesn't just teach you how to code; they teach you how to th...

    Started my programming career

    I attended Flatiron School's web development program in the earlier days. I was able to learn Ruby on Rails and adopt a modern, open source / iterative approach to software development. The program was a lot of work, but working on projects with classmates was a huge eye opener. Self study doesn't prepare you for git conflicts, work prioritization discussions, and other aspects of working in a team. The course was definitely something where people got as much or as little as they put into ...

    Changed My Life

    I attended Flatiron School in the Fall of 2013 with zero prior technical experience. The three months I spent there were without question the most intellectually productive of my life. To be successful, you need to work hard and challenge yourself - this isn't about a diploma or graduation - what you put into the program is exactly what you'll get out of it. The school does a great job of setting you up for success, with excellent curriculum and interview training. Give it your all, and yo...

    Excellent learning experience!

    The bootcamp was the best I could have hoped for. Helped me transition into software development career in no time. Completed the program, had an offer within a month and started working within two. A year before enrolling in Flatiron, I would have never imaged that I'd be doing what I'm doing now. But about the program, what separates Flatiron from other is the Learn.co platform. By the end of the course you would have done over 150 labs in getting concepts across. To me this more hands o...

    Excellent Program for Transition to a Web Development Career

    I attended the Flatiron school in the fall of 2015 and can wholeheartedly recommend the program. I had been interested in a career in web development for several years at that point but despite taking night classes in Computer Science at a local college and trying various online coding programs (such as codeacademy) I was still struggling to make the transition into a new career and unsure of how to continue fitting all these additional courses around my busy work hours. I eventually appli...

    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.

    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 ...
