    UX Design Immersive

    My experience with Flatiron is overall positive. I really enjoyed the course curriculum and the structure of course (6week online individual work, 6week online group work, 5 weeks in-person group work, 4 weeks client work, 3 weeks portfolio.)

    From my observation, Flatiron tends to hire two types of instructors - 1) notorious professors from well-known universities and 2) motivated, smart Bootcamp grads who have been in the workforce for 1-3 years.<...

    Missed the Mark on Career Svces - Outdated Curriculum

    I joined Flatiron School SE track with much enthusiasm. I found the instructors to be knowledgeable and willing to help you if you had questions. I completed the program on a fast track (faster than my cohort) and have my portfolio finished with top notch projects. 

    The curriculum (2019-2020) seemed a bit too basic, repetitive tasks and exercises. I did raise the issue of lessons even repeating themselves and even grammatical errors/bugs in them. It also did not cover crucial soft...

    Full-time online data science bootcamp

    Overall, I had a fantastic experience with Flatiron School. The program enabled me to get a data science job that ticked all my boxes. I was able to make a dramatic career transition (during a pandemic, no less!) from academia/non-profits to tech thanks to this program.

    Background: When I was applying to bootcamps, I already had a PhD (in a humanities discipline) and lots of data science and programming tutorials under my belt. I chose Flatiron School because the ...

    Compassionate Supportive Instruction

    I graduated from the online self-paced software engineering program.  To me, Flatiron's strength is its support structure.  The school bends over backwards to provide multiple channels of support.  I was originally slated to join the in person program in Seattle, but switched to the online program because it made more sense with my family.  I was nervous about a lack of support structure in the online program, but that proved far from the case.  

    There was an abundance of instruct...

    A worthwhile endeavor

    I wasn't sure what to expect coming out of Flatiron School but I can now say that I have the skills to fully build and deploy web applications (if relatively simple ones). Beyond that, I am confident that I have the skills to learn what wasn't covered in the curriculum and keep up with the ever-changing world of technology. I am now more self-reliant and am a better learner, which makes a world of difference.

    Best Option to Transition into DS

    I had a fantastic experience at Flatiron that ended up in me receiving two job offers two days apart, a month after my graduation! They provide the necessary structure and resources to ensure your success in this field. I agree with some reviews that you could self-teach this material, but that is true for everything. The value of this bootcamp relies on these critical elements: - Its structured and comprehensive data science curriculum,- Interaction with seasoned m...

    Data Science

    Being part of the first on-campus DS cohort came with its bumps, but that was to be expected.  Overall I really enjoyed my time at Flatiron and it prepared me to land an entry level DS role.  I would recommend learning a lot more SQL, because a lot of entry level jobs require a lot more than we learned.  I would highly recommend Flatiron to anyone looking to make a career change or better their DS skillset.

    Worth it- UX Design

    I just accepted an offer to my first UX JOB! I really would recommend this program but be aware.... you will need to hustle and work VERY hard to get a job, breaking into UX is no joke. That being said, Flatiron has given me all the tools to succeed: great curriculum, amazing instructors, awesome projects to feature in my portfolio (one is which with a real startup), and I can't speak highly enough about the career services. I highly recommend the in-person UX Design track.

    My life has completely changed

    I joined the inaugural Data Science part-time bootcamp in October 2018 and finished in September 2019. Brace yourself, the program is no joke. You will be banging your head on a desk for the next year. If at all possible, join the full-time program, you're learning a new language and it's important that you dedicate as much time to it as possible. However, if that's not possible for you (like myself) the part-time program is still great burt requires waaaaaayyyy more discipline as it is al...

    FlatIron. DS. I had a job within 2wks

    First and most importantly I started listening listening to the girls on the podcast 2 years ago and i loved listening to them. I was in the first DS cohort and it was pretty intense, i mean i only thought about DS for 14 months and i took about 5 days off where i didn't code or read code. I had a bachelor mathematics degree, that was getting a little stale and switched to a completely different field (environmental) however i had a job within two weeks after i had applied to 4 position.

    flatiron = worth it

    great instructor, good curriculum, lots of resources for graduates on the job hunt. Even though the program comes with a 6-month money-back guarantee if you don't get a job, it's not needed. With no prior experience I got a job after only 6 months on the job market.
