    Fast-paced, but projects can be portfolio-worthy

    I thoroughly enjoyed my time at GA. With 4 projects within 3 months, these were a good start to having a portfolio upon graduation. Naturally, that depended on your effort and diligence throughout the project duration. The pace was pretty fast with a project week after every two weeks of classes, but that served to stretch my learning capabilities. The course covers the basics of full-stack software development. There is definitely a lot more to learn in the tech industry, but it’s a goo...

    Tough but great experience.

    I recently completed the Software Engineering Bootcamp at General Assembly and it has been an extraordinary journey. Very tough, but definitely worth it.  

    From day one, the course was well structured and a nice balance between theory and practical, hands-on projects. The curriculum is well-designed, covering a wide range of topics, from basic programming concepts to complex algorithms and data structures. My instructor was exceptional. They were able to bring their previous exper...

    A big help in transitioning careers

    I had already been taking some self guided studies in the software engineering domain for a few months prior to applying for GA but decided paying to do their program would be the quickest pathway to obtaining my first job in the field. Given the knowledge I had already obtained prior to the bootcamp commencing, I was initially a little frustrated with the basic content in the first two weeks but when I flagged this with my instructor he was more than happy to give me additional reading ...

    Hollistic data science crash course

    The bootcamp is everything you need to get yourself up to speed in terms of data science competency.
    Being a bootcamp, there are some assumptions that you need to know upfront:
    • It will be FAST paced! It is a bootcamp after all. It will feel like cramming a few uni semesters into one.
    • You need to have some competency in Python and A level/uni maths.
    • Commit the ENTIRE 3 months to this course. Pretty much doesn’t leave much time for anything else.

    Embarking on Web Development

    Embarking on my journey into web development with General Assembly was nothing short of intensive, yet immensely rewarding. Over the duration of the course, we delved deep into the core pillars of web development, covering HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Boolean logic, and the invaluable skill of utilizing GitHub and specialised software. Each topic presented its own challenges, but the journey was enriched by the dedicated guidance of our course instructors. The course structure deman...

    My Disheartening Journey with General Assembly's Bootcamp and Job Guarantees

    I attended General Assembly's bootcamp, and while my instructor was knowledgeable and supportive, I experienced disappointment with their job placement promises. Initially, I was led to believe that landing a job post-graduation would be more immediate. However, the reality was different. They often cited minor reasons, like not responding to one of their messages, to avoid accountability for job placement. Despite being punctual and diligently completing all requirements for over a year...

    12-week fastpaced bootcamp focused on drilling in the bare essentials to function professionally as a web2 engineer/developer, with the knowledge easily extendable to general software development with a little bit of extra studying.
