    I am a completely different person than I was last year thanks to FSA

    pros:
    1. full-stack JavaScript-focused curriculum with strong emphasis on React.js was a perfect fit for jobs in the NYC market;
    2. amazing, committed instructors;
    3. project-based and collaborative (pair-programming throughout) was a plus in interviews;
    4. Career Services helped me negotiate a higher salary

    cons:
    1. not enough emphasis on becoming proficient at writing tests (e.g. Jest, Mocha, etc.), and
    2. Career Services was great at the negotiation phase...

    Fantastic and Valuable Learning Experience, Even for CS Major

    I attended Fullstack as a Summer of Code student. I was weary of attending at first since I am already a computer science student, and thought it may be "overkill." But it was worth it in the end because I learned so many valuable skillsets that I would have not encountered otherwise. The interview prep support was also tremendous, and I really enjoyed learning and working with others who are equally motivated. Shoutout to Kate who was a wonderful mentor and teacher throughout my Senior ph...

    Amazing experience

    If you are serious about changing careers into the tech industry, definitely consider Fullstack Academy. It was chanllenging, but you get out what you put in. The job search comes after the bootcamp can be even tougher. Be ready. 

    Aside from getting a great experience from the bootcamp, I also gain an amazing Fullstack network which I treasure a lot.

    Challenging But Worth It

    Foundations was incredibly challenging. Junior phase was very challenging. Senior phase was challenging. Everything got easier over time because your confidence improved and your understanding of the context of what you were learning improved, and your skills for learning improved. At the beginning we all kept telling each other and ourselves, "trust the process." It got easier to trust over time. We got a lot closer than I thought we'd be able to over a remote platform, but it really felt...

    Well worth the risk

    For me, leaving my career and starting this bootcamp was a huge risk. It would mean spending most of my savings to continue to live in NYC will not working, not working for the first time in 12 years which grated on my psyche and not being sure I would get a job quickly... if at all in this field. 

    Grace Hopper was well worth it. You can tell from the get-go that it's a mutual investment because of the tuition policy but it's more than that. I do have some criticism regarding my ...

    My experience at Fullstack Academy was truly remarkable. I had an amazing time at Fullstack and it redefined my career goals as my job search was more successful than I ever could have hoped. The technical foundation you are provided with truly is enough to obtain a job at a top company. The quality of other students was very high and it was truly special to learn alongside so many interesting people who had succeeded in many different areas and industries. I could not reccommend Fullstack...

    Great experience

    Fullstack was not just a great bootcamp experience, but one of the best educational experiences of my life. The team of instructors does a great job creating a sense of community. The curriculum is incredibly thorough, and by the senior phase of the program I could not believe the kinds of projects we were producing. I think the only downside was that the instructors are incredibly capable and experienced programmers, but they don't have much teaching experience. Overall, FSA is a great pr...

    More than just an educational course

    Going to Fullstack was one of the best decisions I ever made. 

    There's a lot of things that come into play when you're transitioning to a new career, especially in the tech field. 

    A purely educational course isn't enough. Anyone can take an online video course in their pj's at home and learn the same material I learned at Fullstack. 

    What you get is a community of people who you'll potentially know and make life-time fr...

    Spot-on education, deeply caring environment.

    First of all, I can definitely say that Fullstack provided me with everything, and more, to land a coding job and be a successful coder. A power-packed curriculum taught by brilliant profs, plus an extensive and innovative course on having great coding interviews, landed me a job very soon after graduation. But many other coding schools can teach you similar things. What sets Fullstack apart is the sheer personal attention and supportive, friendly environment they create. I'm still in touc...

    Best education experience I've ever had

    I don't have much to add here to all the great reviews.  I had a great time in the program and really enjoyed every aspect of it.  

    My favorite parts:

    - The other people in my cohort were all super-sharp.  You could tell in admissions that Fullstack isn't messing around when they let in people for the program.

    - The curriculum is really fun and up-to-date. They were shifting to React and Redux and I really liked how they presented it.  I've done lots of online...
