    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...

    Dario

    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...

    Amazing experience. Never looked back.

    Flatiron's bootcamp prep work really helps you understand the basics of coding. It's also useful to see if you truly enjoy coding and solving problems or not. The interview for the bootcamp will obviously be daunting as it would be your first ever coding related interview. I would advise to stay calm, understand what you have written and explain why you chose to write it that way. Once in the bootcamp, you're greeting with the amazing and lovely instructors and staff. The first week or two wi...

    Access Labs Review

    I attended Flatiron x WeWork's Access Labs in Brooklyn from October 2018 to February 2019. My experience there was overwhelmingly positive. From staff to other students, everyone behaved professionally when communicating with each other and everyone was always very supportive through the experience.

    You will definitely learn everything they promise as long as you put in the effort to learn. A lot of learning comes from their Learn.co website that you can try out through their fre...

    Community, Communication, and Learning

    I had been working in Client Service roles for most of my career. After working with a developer team at the last job I was on, I was inspired to start pursuing a developer career. After a company re-org, I was let go, and decided to begin down a path to a new career. I did a significant amount of research, and after everything I read online about Flatiron, and talking to a few recent grads, I pulled the trigger and applied.

    Best experience I've had in my life.

    Flatiron School helped me gain the expertise and industry knowledge I needed to become a Software Developer.

    The curriculum is up to date with the latest technologies, they teach everything from beginner to advanced in a period of 4 months, and I'm not going to lie, the whole course is very intense and challenging, so be prepared to study and practice non-stop.

    The best thing about Flatiron School is its people; teachers, coaches, managers, and its students too! They ar...

    Veterinary Nurse to Software Engineer

    If you would've told me 1 year ago 6 months ago I'd be where I am now, I don't think I would've have believed you. I started Flatiron in October '18, graduated in January '19, and found a job that I LOVE in exactly 2 months. I came from a totally different background with NO prior developer experience and am now thriving in an incredible new career. I know it sounds crazy and too good to be true, I was completely skeptical at first too... but ask any Flatiron grad and they'll agree ...

    Hard work but worth it

    Overall I am really pleased with my decision to go to Flatiron, without it I would not have been able to change my career and get a job in a relatively short timeframe, it would have taken me years if I had taken a purely self-taught, self-directed route. It was a fantastic and supportive environment with brilliant instructors. 

    I will add the usual caveats by saying that the course does ask a lot of you - I think I averaged 60+ hours a week in order to keep up with the pace of m...
