    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. I a...

    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.

    SAY NO TO FLATIRON

    If your looking to self teach yourself and pay $15,000, then Flatiron is your school. If you want to learn the pure basics and then have to Google everything else, then say YES! Otherwise, this is school is an utter rip off. They don't have a plan, it is all lecture, and very little study time. You will end your day with daily challenges on topics you barely touched on. This is where Google comes in. You are told that in the real world, you will have to Google the answers so this is prepar...

    Flatiron School was the most challenging yet rewarding expereince Ive had in life. The highs and lows are real. There were days I thought about giving up, I thought I couldnt make it through, I thought maybe this wasnt for me. Yet I kept showing up, putting the time and effort in, taking advantage of the excellent help of technical coaches and tech leads...and after 5 months I graduated. I think the cirriculum and technical assistance is top notch at Flatiron. It wasnt until maybe a month ...

    👍

    Before Flatiron I'd had several years of experience working as a front-end developer and previously paid for education at a community college and through Harvard Extension School. I had known of bootcamps for a long time and not had much interest or belief in them. But, I was hitting a plateau in my particular niche and within 48 hours of seeing a Flatiron ad on Facebook or Google, I was all in. For me, with mostly HTML and CSS experience, I could tell that this program would fill foundati...

    Unbelievably Transformative Program

    The Flatiron School will change your life --- if you put in the work. They hire Incredible staff, support your learning with fantastic materials, and work alongside you after graduation to keep you motivated. The entire environment is designed for your success, but as with many things in life, nobody does the work for you.

    Flatiron is the best for a reason

    This place is amazing. I had Joshua Miles as my instructor and he is the best instructor I've ever had. I learned an amazing amount in such a short time. Thanks to Flatiron, I will be starting a job with a better salary than I've ever had and a career that I really enjoy and care about. If you have the funds or are able to get loans for this program, it is VERY worth it.

    My experience at Flatiron Software Engineering Immersive Program

    First thing I want to say is that enrolling in the Software Engineering Immersive program at Flatiron was the best decision I had made in some time. 

    I found the course to be challenging and I expected as much; but I am not saying that the course being challenging is an aspect to deter anyone from taking it. Parallel to the difficulty of the course, there was my enjoyment of understanding a topic, which is mostly due to the amazing help I received from my instructor and coaches.<...

    Graduate of Immersive Software Engineering - Washington, D.C.

    Flatiron School totally changed my life in a lot of ways, I not only gained the tangible coding skills to be a developer, but Flatiron achieved their goal of getting me to a confidence and skill-level in my coding where I can go off any learn any language, framework and software system via research and practice. To me that is the biggest technical gift that I walked away with.

    In addition, I would not have been able to complete the course if it were not for the incredible coaches...

    I am very glad I changed my career and I kind of went by with a lot of things. But the course is quite bad, run by instructors with not much experience, in an environment very hostile. I have seen many stories on their greediness. Many people who thought they were not able to make it and wanted to leave in the "free to leave" two weeks were convinced to stay and then left by themself totally behind. I swear out of 20 people of my cohort all of them wanted to leave negative feedback but the...

    My Honest Review According to my Experience

    I completed the Web Development Immersive Program at the Access Labs Brooklyn Campus which offered deferred tuition. It's very misleading that the program is called Software Engineering Immersive when their content is web development. I can honestly say I enjoyed the time I was there there, but my overall experience is a bit of a mixed bag.

    About the deferred tuition...

    So it's completely irrelevant to my overall experience but I am grateful that Flatir...
