    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. 

    The way the lessons build on each other in the Flatiron prep is very h...

    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,...

    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!
