    I took the Data Analytics part-time course in London. The program consists of learning the process of data analysis and practical skills to perform data analysis.

     

    Nowadays for online business, marketing & data analysis tend to become a one-person job as campaigns can be optimised in real time based on their performances. This program gives you a set of skills that aren't taught at the university if you studied broad subjects like marketing or business.

    The theoretical part was very useful for me to understand what is the best approach before to do a specific analysis. How to prepare the business questions and choose a data set.

    Then we did many exercises using Excel, SQL, Tableau to learn how to leverage those tools to make the analysis and provide great data insights.

    What makes me satisfied is that I could use at work the next day what I had learned at night. 

    I also met interesting, passionate and motivated people. In my group there was people from many industries (Finance, online business, offline business ...).

    The Data Science course at GA was excellent!

    As anyone who has any prior knowlege of the field would expect, the curriculium is quite broad, and as a result the part-time course does not go in depth in any areas, but rather takes you through the basics in as many areas as it can in 10 weeks. I imagine the full-time course would provide a more conclusive education, but i can't really comment on that.

    Even though I would not recommend the part-time course to people looking for a conclusive education, it was invaluable to me and will be to people looking to explore the options available in the Data Science profession. The part-time course does not pretend to give you all the tools you need to succeed in the industry. Instead, GA has clearly realised that would be cramming too much into too little time, and have structured the course to give you a good introduction to each area of Data Science and provide you with enough information to get you started on your own educational journey.

    This course will provide you with the basic knowlege of tools, concepts and processes needed to get started with your own exploration and an excellent environment to ask questions and network with like-minded professionals.

    I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in getting started in Data Science, but doesn't know where to start and what's involved.

    I learned so much in such a short period of time, GA has taken me from knowing basic HTML, CSS, JS to being a full stack developer. After graduating I managed to add another 2 full stack applications to my portfolio, which goes to show you don’t even need your teachers afterwards to get stuff done since they teach you everything properly  so it sticks!

    I took an on-campus Software Engineering Immersive course at General Assembly in Manhattan and I had a great experience. The on campus atmosphere was nice and friendly and conductive to learning. The professors and TA's were available for help and excellent at teaching technical skills as well as explaining what is relevant in the industry. The outcomes team and career coach were super helpful in explaining what the field is like as far as job seeking and getting through interviews in the software engineering field (this was an area I felt inexperienced with and unsure about). I finished the course feeling much more confident about that. The staff was cool and so were fellow students, who were as driven to grow and succeed as I was. We formed some awesome friendships there. Overall, it's an experience that helped me grow and get the kind of job I was looking for, so I recommend it.

    Trying to crack into the tech field without the resources/network/knowledge is a tall order but through the GA SEI Bootcamp, I was able to launch into a career despite having little development/coding experience before joining GA. This doesn't mean that it will be easy, the months spent in the course were some of the longest/hardest times but the instructors/TA's & your fellow classmates truly help propel you to the finish line. While there are definitely some things that could be improved upon (some lectures were not updated/group time truly dependent on if the individuals cared about doing work that day) the overall experience was great. Outcomes were extremely responsive post-course and helped improve my chances of landing a full-time position. At the end of the day, as most others have already said, the amount of effort you put in will show in the end.

    Bootcamps are not for the faint of heart. GA made sure to let me know this, from the interview process to enroll, to the pre-course work, inclusive subscription to a wellness coach via Ginger app, your on-call course Student Success Specialist (mine was Lo - they were super supportive!), scheduled teacher check-ins, the built-in supportive channels on the GA Slack network, and the STRONG suggestion to treat this as a full-time job from day on top of recommendations to schedule in self-care time and have support people outside of the course to unwind with.

    I say this to show:
    A. Yes, it is really is an intensive - and, at times, brutal - amount of work (because the diversity of the topics means there will always be elements you're weaker in) 
    B. They don't treat student intake casually - it's quality over quantity and 
    C. They're constantly iterating the course process to better set up for success with each cycle.

    During the course, I was in class or working on assignments for most of my waking hours. I definitely investing in an ergonomic chairs, second screen, blue light filter glasses and taking screen breaks. The biggest factor of course satisfaction is going to be my co-students and the instructional team and they were both freaking excellent. Our course started our large enough to get 2 Instructors (Emily Landsman, Jeffrey Preston) and 2 Instructional Assistants (Aly Gombos, Jennifer Houlihan) and all of them had a different skill set, backgrounds, and approach to teaching. We also were the test-run class for a UXDI/SEI crossover project which taught us a lot about interacting cross-departmentally with software developers. I've learned so much from each of them and IAs have both reached out to let me know about jobs postings relevant for me or to advocate for my skills even months after the course ended. My student cohort was amazing and even 6 months later are some of my closest friends. I genuinely miss those long, intense, productive days of class!

    Screen fatigue is a thing and remote work can get lonely, I'm so glad the remote option is available since there's no campus anywhere NEAR Pittsburgh, PA. Even then, I can't imagine adding in transport time/money it would've cost for an in-person class. Most of all, being over Zoom means that each lecture is recorded so that I can go back and replay whatever lesson I need whenever I want. :)

    Last but not least: Outcomes. The post-course employment assistance GA includes in course enrollment is a serious lifesaver post-course. My Outcomes Coach Julie has kept us all accountable, afloat, and in the right headspace through the epic exhausting adventure that is landing that first job. They've tried new strategies almost monthly to find new ways of giving us an edge in this pandemic landscape where job fairs and mingling events are no longer a thing - seriously it feels like Outcomes is working just as hard as we all are to find how to get us hired. I'm in the middle of the interview process with a company they connected me to with their most recent addition, a GA-based Referral Program system.
