Galvanize

Avg Rating:4.47 ( 177 reviews )

Galvanize offers a 13-week full-time and a 26-week part-time data science bootcamp, as well as Hack Reactor's 12-week JavaScript coding bootcamp in Austin, Boulder, Denver, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and New York City. The data science bootcamp covers Python, SQL, and Hadoop. The software engineering bootcamp covers full stack JavaScript including AngulaJS, Node.js, and Express.js.

Candidates are advised to submit their applications 6 weeks before the course start date to leave enough time to complete the admissions process. For the Data Science Immersive, students should ideally have experience in Python programming, math, statistics, and probability, and must complete a technical exercise, and two technical interviews. For the Software Engineering Immersive, students must learn the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript as part of the admissions process prep work, and show admissions staff that they can solve problems like an engineer through a technical interview.

By integrating education and industry, Galvanize puts learning and working side by side. Galvanize aims to teach students the skills and concepts they need to make an impact in a new career, or improve their skills at their current gig. As well as immersive bootcamps, Galvanize also offers short courses, workshops, and events.

    In just 13 weeks, you'll learn the tools, techniques, and fundamental concepts you need to know to make an impact as a data scientist. During the course of the program, you'll work through messy, real-world data sets to gain experience across the data science stack: data munging, exploration, modeling, validation, visualization, and communication.

    Galvanize FSI was an incredible experience that not only am I so happy I chose to go through with, but that I actively miss for its unique immersive qualities and amazing fellow students and instructors. The curriculum we went through gave us a great base for being hired into the modern workforce, as well as many qualities of "real" software developers that I believe couldn't be learned in independent study because the instructors are all highly skilled developers themselves.

    The Boulder campus itself is a wealth of fun people and opportunities, located in an amazing part of town with a beautiful view and facilities. If you put yourself out there to connect with those companies that work out of Galvanize and take advantage of luncheons and happy hours, it will only add an additional dimension to the coding course work you're assigned and I highly recommend it.

    My cohort did experience some turn over in instructors which caused a loss of continuity in teaching style and rapport, but the management worked very hard to make sure we still had the experience we came for and I say ultimately succeeded. We simply met more individuals, but they were all qualified and effective in making us the best coders we could be.

    Even as a "bootcamp," Galvanize made it clear to me and other students that they valued us as people who had sacrificed a lot to attend their program, much moreso than a typical higher ed institution. They worked hard to give us an incredible return on investment. The program isn't easy and you can't skate through it, but if you're committed at every step of the way you will never look back. Happy hunting!

    Galvanize (gSchool) was an incredible experience. I was thoroughly immersed in code with a group of great individuals in one of the best spots in boulder (don't get me started on the lunchtime options). The program was responsive to changes in the development community and instilled a fantastic base of knowledge that helped me be successful as a junior (now mid level) software developer. 

    As someone who is skeptical of learning institutions in general I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were invested in making sure that I was happy as a customer and as a learner. This course is not for those that are on the fence about learning to code though, it requires substantial (40 minimum, often upwards of 60 hours a week) commitment and willpower. The instructors are incredibly supportive and many of them went through the program themselves so they can relate well to what you're going through.

Thanks!
