    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...

    Excellent Product Management Beginners Guide

    The GA Course instructors (Glen & Joe) were great at taking us through the material in a logical, engaging and digestible way. We got a great intro into product management principles with great examples of real world applications.

    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. Instructors were knowledgeable and enthusiastic, even when I asked about topics outside the scope of the bootcamp, which provided me direction to explore on my own.

    A great program, but be prepared to throw your whole self into this bootcamp

    As an Overall Review of GA's UXDI Immersive --
    For GA's UXDI Immersive, you're thrown headfirst into a crazy 40+ hour/week commitment with barely any time to take a breath of fresh air. Now, this seems daunting (and it absolutely is), but if you go into this program with the mindset that you want to succeed, that you want to get as much out of this program as you possibly can before those brief 12 weeks are up, then you'll be fine -- I can guarantee it. I cannot<...

    My experience with GA was amazing! My instructors were all incredibly knowledgable, welcoming, and always available for my cohort. I was able to grasp the skills within the 3 months and the projects helped to build my portfolio that would later help me land a job. The teaching style was moderately fast paced but having helpful instructors that were always fine answering questions or slowing down when needed was great to have.
