    Flatiron helped me get a 60% pay increase!

    My situation was a little unique in that I was living and working in DC, but knew I was going to move to Miami soon to be with my new husband. I decided to quit my job, do the in-person immersive program, and then move to Miami and search for jobs there, and it was the best decision I could have made for my career! Flatiron helped me move from a $50k/yr job to an $80k/yr junior dev role in Miami. 

    I definitely recommend going into it for the right reasons. Try so...

    Excellent Experience

    I did the online Full Stack Web Development program at the Flatiron School, and like any online program, it had its positives and negatives. On the positive side, I do think that the school and the instructors genuinely care about the students and helping them as much as possible. The focus on labs, projects, and practical application was a good approach though I'm sure that there are ways to improve the currculum which I believe they regularly do. While taking the course, they released a ...

    Great Option Depending on Your Situation

    I think that Flatiron School can be a great option for getting into Web Development. I did their self-paced online course and got a job within 2-3 months of graduation. The experience is probably very different if you are taking an in-person course, but as for the online course, it's what you make of it. When I took the course (I believe its different now), you paid monthly, so the faster you got through the course, the less money you paid. This was very motivating for me, I was able to fi...

    Excellent course but not perfect

    I recently completed the Full Stack Web Developer program at Flatiron School (completed in Oct of 2018), I took the course online using the self guided option. This allowed me to do as much or as little as I wanted every day, which turned out to be perfect for me. The online course is definitely a very self driven course, so if you have trouble motivating yourself, you might benefit from connecting with other students in the Slack channel, which is usually pretty active. I really enjoyed t...

    It worked for me but....

    In terms of what the program was supposed to do, I am technically a success. I left my job, learned web development (including React and Redux), and got a well-paying job as a software engineer at a tech company. But I wish I had paid more attention to some of the critical reviews. 

    I did the online program, where it's self-paced. At least in this program, learning is VERY self-driven. Everything is taught through the Flatiron "Learn" portal, which is sometimes buggy. I've defini...

    It works - if you put the work in.

    I attended Flatiron School's Access Labs program in Brooklyn, and graduated this past January. Since then I have been hired as Junior Frontend Developer, and I can say that it was the absolutely right decision to attend Flatiron.

    I was very unsure how their reputation stacked up in the real world and what the quality of the education was. I looked into App Academy, and Fullstack as well, and was accepted at Fullstack, (I didnt apply to App Academy). Ulitimately I choose Flatiron ...

    Outstanding coding bootcamp

    Speaking as a graduate, this is an outstanding coding bootcamp for several reasons:

    1) Their full stack web development curriculum gives you everything you need to make web apps on both the front and backend. There are many other course choices but this is the one I completed. 

    2) The curriculum is test driven; you write code that passes automated tests just like a real developer does. This means you are really being trained to write good code. Furthermore, there are 5 ...

    Viable Career Switch

    I should start with the ol' bootcamp adage of "your outcome/success is dependent on you and what you put into the program" as that very much holds true to my experience with Flatiron.  I did the Online Immersive program and managed to land a dream job, but I also passed on the opportunity to qualify for the "Job Guarantee" so I could spend more time post-graduation learning and polishing my portfolio projects (to be eligible for the "job guarantee or your money back" part that they adverti...

    Amazing Experience

    I earned my BA in Computer Science, but I had a hard time applying my skills to real world scenarios.  After working in a non-technical setting for about a year, I jumped into learning web development. It was a lot of fun but with no real learning structure to guide me, so I felt like I was always jumping around. I decided to attend Flatiron, and it was a great experience. So much information is thrown at you, but the instructors and fellow students are there to help you.  I think that was...

    Life changing

    Completing the Flatiron Web Dev Immersive course in NYC was one of the best commitments I've ever made. I'm from Utah and after researching bootcamp options decided on Flatiron and a few others. I had no coding background and barely passed the technical interview during the admissions process so the coursework was difficult. However, since I was committed to putting in 12-16 hours/day the material was certainly manageable. By the end of each 3-week module, I felt confident in the material ...

    Software Engineer

    Flatiron School was a once in a lifetime experience that changed my life. I challenged myself everyday and met a ton of ambitious and intelligent individuals (instructors, mentors and classmates) who I now call friends and most importantly, I walked away with a profoundly valuable skill: the ability to turn ideas into reality through programming.

    I WORKED EXTREMELY HARD AND WAS CHALLENGED!!!

    On average, I spent 10–16 hours a day (~75–80 hours/week, incl...

    Great Community and Staff

     I graduated from Flatiron School's immersive Web Development program in 2018. It is a great place to learn. The staff is committed to your success and even after graudation there is plenty of support to help you find a job. The best part of Flatiron is the community you build with both students and staff (a lot of the staff are former students). Most classes build really strong bonds that continue even after graduation. Additionally Career Services does an amazing job and can help connect...
