    Bootcamp Prep and Prework

    I will be starting the immersive in-person software engineering in a few weeks, and I feel that the preparatory work on the Learn.co website was extremely helpful. The instructions were really easy to follow especially for a novice programmer like me. I believe that anyone who maybe in the same place as me would be able to benefit from the style of teaching provided in the bootcamp prep and prework. 

    Another feature of their website that I found useful was the help option in case y...

    Bootcamp Prep

    I was shocked and delighted by the quality of Flatiron's free bootcamp prep curriculum. Having initially tried once or twice to find some free, online introductions to front-end programming, I had become used to platforms that--despite making big promises up front--only offered confusing, unhelpful, or overwhelming lessons that left me in the dark without any sense of progress made. Flatiron's bootcamp prep could not have been more different: evenly-paced, comprehensive, and with skill-tes...

    Bootcamp Prep and pre-work

    I am very impressed by the quality of this bootcamp prep and I am amazed by how much I learned in such a short period of time. The material was challenging yet approachable and when I got stuck I immediately received help from online staff. 

    The material prepared me well for the technical and I continue to be impressed with this learning platform as I move through the pre-work for the upcoming bootcamp.

    Bootcamp Prep & Admissions

    The bootcamp prep was essential in helping me understand the basics of important coding languages like Javascript. I was pleased to find that the admissions portion was directly tied to the bootcamp prep, and went over the same concepts covered in the prep course. 

    I prepared a lot for my technical interview and was also pleased to find it was such an educational experience. My interviewer seemed genuinely interested in seeing how well I understood the code, and pointing out where ...

    Flatiron School x WeWork's Access Labs

    I recently graduated from Access Labs (Flatiron School x WeWork) and found that the course was incredible. As someone who was self-teaching, and had prior exposure to coding through Computer Science, and my own curiosity when I worked in IT as a Network Engineer, I found that it helped me focus in on what I needed to know, and learn. The entire course was structured with an evolving curriculum, and the instructors and assistants were very knowledgeable. The space, and community provided an...

    Worth it!

    I've been taking dev courses here and there but was getting nowhere without consistent practice. Then I decided to get serious and took Flatiron School Bootcamp - online program. I was a bit skeptical, to be honest. But decided to go with it because it was month-to-month and I could cancel any month. Soon enough I was writing my first project from scratch. I think Flatiron has a very strong curriculum. It is built in a smart way of pushing you towards learning how to learn in the first pla...

    Prep Work

    The prep work is a great introduction into Python because it's segmented by topics, and those topics are segmented to give your brain a break. And it's nice that all the topics build upon one another. For those coming from a not-so-technical background, this prep work is great because they explain the math concepts very well. And for those coming from a math background and/or little coding background this prep work is definitely doable and maybe even easy for you!

    Excellent Data Science Prep Course

    I took the online data science prep course and I totally enjoyed the experience and opportunity to learn. Getting used to developing small, targeted amounts of code using Python helped a lot. For all beginners, start with the online prep course to ensure your success and a new way of thinking. I really can't wait to start my online bootcamp.

    Prep work

    Going through the prep work before starting classes, I'm impressed with the thoroughness and breadth of the lessons. They're giving me a basis in Javascript, Ruby, Git, HTML and CSS, as well as BASH and the command line, with live chat assistance when I need it.

    There's even instructions to set up a Lubuntu virtual machine to do the labs, which is great for me because I'm not in a position to buy a Macbook yet.

    Great experience

    Currently I am taking a prep course with Flatiron School and absolutely enjoy the curriculum. The community is really supportive, not only instructors but also other students and even alumnis are out there to help you on every your step if you get stuck. Litterally every time if something is not clear you just post your question and it takes a couple of seconds for someone to get you unstuck. You dont feel alone on this journey and that's really important.

    Online Full Stack Web Development program

    My first and only experience with coding was through a past mentorship with my company, which helped me 'get my feet wet' and left me wanting to pursue web development. I found Flatiron's online program, which was perfect for my schedule and received the Women Take Tech scholarship to join the program. I always felt pushed during the program, yet supported- but not in a 'hand holding' way. You'll definietly get pushed into the deep end a lot, which mimics real world development!

    Bootcamp Prep course is interesting

    The bootcamp prep course is perhaps the most complete and wellrounded free online curriculum I've found in terms of the learning environment they've created. That being said, there are some gaps in their content and overall, the whole experience could be polished more for it to really shine. It is mainly self-led reading and labs. This means you can do it all on your own time, but it also means that there is limited interaction with typical "instructors".
