    Experience at Flatiron as a CS Grad

    Overall wonderful experience. I came to Flatiron as a recent college graduate with a CS degree, so I had a certain expectation with programming classes. I was pleasantly surprised by my experience at Flatiron. They have a great community where everyone is helping each other out. I did take issue with one instructor who wasn't as engaged with my class as the other instructors were, but they were all extremely helpful and approachable. The only main problem I had was with career services. Al...

    Highly Recommended

    I graduated Flatiron School's online web development program at the end of the May and recommend them highly. I did a ton of research before enrolling in their program and they really have the best program out there. I felt supported and challenged during the whole process. The online tech coaching was invuable as I got stuck with trickier concepts. 

    After I graduated the career coaching was AWESOME. It was so helpful to me to have someone go over my resume and linkedin profile. ...

    I graduated from Access Labs on September 14th and just finished my second week at my new job as a Software Engineer. I had a really 3 months+ at Access Labs this past summer. The instructors were really attentive and always made themselves available for us. There were pretty clear expectations on how we should be progressing through the materials.

    The most valuable part of the experience for me was the job assistance. They assign you a career coach to meet wtih you weekly and o...

    Data Science Bootcamp Prep Course

    The online data science bootcamp prep course on learn.co was the best course I have taken. Before applying to flatiron, I took multilpe online python/data science courses (Udemy, codecademy, edex, etc.). So, when I started this one I quicly realized I was learning fundamentals that many didn't touch on. What I loved the most was that they are preparing you to do the data science immersive program, but they want you to be a great programmer as well. Instead of simply teaching you libraries ...

    Bootcamp Prep Course

    I was recently accepted into the Immersive Software Engineering Bootcamp and have had an extremely pleasant experience with Flatiron throughout the whole process.  I began teaching myself to code using a variety of free and paid resources (Codecademy, Udemy, Edabit challenges, auditing classes online of some esteemed professors, etc), but I found Flatiron's Pre Bootcamp Prep with Learn to be definitely one of, if not THE, best.  I began working through the Prep course without any immediate...

    Applying to Software Engineering Immersive and Learn.co

    I recently got in to the flatiron software engineering immersive, and so far my whole experience with flatiron and learn.co has been incredible. A note: if you are applying to flatiron, doing the bootcamp prep course is the most important thing you can do. 

    A while ago I tried to learn more about programming and web development on codeacademy, but did't stick with it because I was often frustrated and confused. But with the learn.co bootcamp prep course it just felt easier to lea...

    The online curriculem at learn.co is amazing! They show you multiple ways to solve a problem, which is very useful in programming, especially when trying to read someone elses code. I am new to Ruby and this curriculem has really made it really easy to learn.

    Flatiron Bootcamp Prep Course

    I initially started self-learning on Codecademy and found that there weren't enough practice problems for all of the material to stick long term. After finding Flatiron's Bootcamp Prep Course, I was making notable progress. I've since completed the course and in my experience, it was the best free resource for learning the fundamentals.

    The course is designed so that you're required to think pragmatically which helps improve upon your problem-solving abilities. What's also super ne...

    Flatiron Bootcamp Prep

    Before doing the Flatiron Bootcamp Prep I was self teaching myself from various sources including a free cource on web development from Udacity and a course I purchased from Udemy. 

    Learning from the first two methods I always got confused when I got to Javascript Arrays. I just could not grasp the concept. It wasn't until I started the Flatiorin bootcamp prep that the lesson on Arrays started to click.

    Bootcamp Student

    I decided with my husband that we both wanted to go back to school and learn software engineering. It was a bit of an endeavor of course, but I am thankful that the school offered a free boot camp prep so I could feel out the program and see if it was achievable to take on going to school. The boot camp prep for the most part was pretty easy for follow along and I really liked doing the labs. At times, it was challenging, but as long as you’re comfortable asking questions or looking ...

    Flatiron School's Bootcamp Prep

    Flatiron School's free Bootcamp Prep, for me, was a great refresher for HTML, CSS, and Javascript and completely taught me everything I now know about Ruby. The Javascript and Ruby portions went over the basics, but also included lots of practice problems to solve, so you can start feeling more comfortable and confident when looking at functions and data structures. To me it seemed like a lot of this prep was learning and getting comfortable with Ruby, going into debugging, loops, classes,...
