    The one week Product Management course was intensive, with rather a lot of work to do each evening. But it was well-paced, and lots of fun too and we laughed a lot during class time. I left having achieved my goal of feeling more confident about entering the workforce after being at home with three small children.
    There was a high calibre of students doing the course which made it more interesting and helped my learning process. The course instructor had a nice balance of humour and seriousness, and all of the team at General Assembly in Sydney are happy to help if needed. We were asked to give feedback on a daily basis, and it was always addressed the following day which was impressive.
    You get lots of helpful material to refer to later, and as a bonus I have some good memories of my time there.

    In October of 2016, I found my self at my desk writing my two weeks notice that I never planned on submitting. I was just tired and bored of my current job at the time. My work life balance was nonexistence. I was out the house before my wife and kids were awake and home around bath and bedtime. A few weeks later I was laid off due to a merger. For years I have played around with code. I knew enough to be dangerous but not enough to employ. My wife saw this passion I had for tech and suggested that Go back to school for and get my CS degree. I Did my research and found out quickly that it would cost me 30-45k and 2-3 years to accomplish this. During my research, I found about boot camps. I had no idea what out how boot camps worked. I visited a few local campus here in Atlanta. One of those was General Assembly. From day one this staff has been friendly, transparent and encouraging. I was sold almost immediately after attending a weekend "How to code session".  I schedule a meeting with Jordan Evan ( Admission Counselor) to discuss the 12 weeks immersive.  We went back and fouth for a couple weeks weighing pros and cons. He was extremely patient with me.  After another talk with my wife, I decided to sign up.   

    From day one of the 12 weeks, GA has exceeded all of my expectations  Everyone one from the Frontlines team to Regional Director.   Especially during my moments of doubt.  There were two determining factors that lead me to choose GA Course Curriculum and the GA Community.   6 weeks after completing the course I accept a Software Engineer position. Yes, a real salaried with full benefits. ( And the pay is above the median salary for my city)

    Thank you to all the amazing staff at the Atlanta Campus for supporting and pushing me past my expectations.  If you are looking for a boot camp to attend stop call General Assembly. Your search is over.

    I took completed the General Assembly Web Development Immersion course ( 3 Months) back in April 2016.

    Game Changer is an understatement.

    << Background

     Before GA, I was a creative (video producer and video editor of explainer videos).  I am currently a web developer at an ad agency (video game clients).  In no way shape or form could I have gotten the job, or had the opportunities if not for GA.  Before I started, my Father doubted the Bootcamp path.  My programmer friend insisted I was a CREATIVE, and programming was hard, and doubted the program.  That programmer friend eventually hired me right out of school to work at Kik, a chat messenger.

    << Expectation

    I believe ANYONE can learn to program.  It takes curiosity, a bit of stubbornness, and a strong work ethic.  But if you have these qualities. You will learn to code for 10 hours a day for 3 months.  Build 4 pretty amazing apps from your own brain. 

    << The Job Hunt and my path

    1) Hired 2 days out of school to do a hybrid part programming, part partner relations

    2) 6 months later took a pay cut to do a full programming job at small agency

    3) 2 Months later hired full time at a Bigger Agency to do Front End Development (this was my strength, still do PHP as well)  

    << Downsides

    Even out of school you will get recruiters who think dev camp programmers compared to CS grads are not as good.  I mean we are talking about 3 months vs 4 years.  You will be on coding interviews and may bet your ass handed to you.

    << Upsides

    In this profession, you just need to keep learning to get paid more.  Every day is an opportunity to code and become a better programmer.

    Not only did the staff and my fellow cohorts provide a professional and engaging learning environment to work in, the entire experience made me feel like I was moving into an industry and potential job that really suited me as a person.

    As expected in a classroom environment learning from others was where I thought I would gain the most benefit, however I also had the opportunity and privilege to solidify my own understanding of concepts by helping others through their problems along the way, this was by far one of the most positive personal gains I took away from the experience. I’m now in a great position where I can start to build on the strong foundations laid at GA, and continue expanding my knowledge and understanding of all things web development.

    I would 100% recommend GA London if you are thinking of moving into a career in web development!

    I would definitely recommend the Digital Marketing course, it is a great way to get an understanding of the majority of the digital marketing best practises and platforms. If you are wanting to start your career in digital marketing, or just trying to get a better understanding about the numbers you are tracking, it helps to start building the knowledge.

    It's practical application helps you learn while achieving and implementing well thought out strategies. Highly recommend this course.

    I am a graduate of the User Experience Design Immersive Course in London from May-July 2017. I originally was on the February 2017 intake but had to pull out in Week 3 due to a sudden illness. While I was recovering in hospital they could not have treated me any better and offered me whatever options I wanted to take. I then re-started the course in May when I had recovered and am now in the job search phase of it. So far the job support has been quality and you are going to get out of it what you put in - but it's important to note that the support is there. The course itself is fast-paced, full on and requires your 100% commitment - and I wouldn't want it any other way. We had an experienced senior UX Designer as our teacher, and if we had any feedback we were constantly encouraged to speak up. It was a positive learning environment, (but it did help that we had a classroom full of students that handled the pressure cooker well). If you are unsure about General Assembly - they are top notch and are worth the investment. But if you are deciding on a career change like I did, make sure you go to the many free open nights and speak to the team there to see if it's right for you. And if it is - go for it!

    General Assembly was a great experience for me, and I would recommend it whole-heartedly. But you need to know what you're in for before you sign up. It's like a language immersion, but for data. The data science immersive was very challenging because they're teaching you a ton of stuff in a very short amount of time. To get the most out of it, you will be getting 8-hours of in-class instruction each day, and should expect an additional 3-hours of homework after that to solidify the material you learned. Each day, you learn two important topics related to data science (one in the morning, and another in the afternoon). They don't really repeat things if you don't quite get it, so you have to pay attention, you have to do your homework, and you have to not sweat the fact that you probably won't leave the course a total master at everything. If you come into the course with a bit of python as background, that will help you immensely. If you do the work, you will come out of the class with a solid data science foundation. You should know though that completing the course alone will not get you a job. You need to actually have the skills at the end, as employers will test your abilities during the application process. You can't fake knowing data science. For this reason, the job coaches can only get you so far. Think of this less as something you "buy" or "get" and more of something you "do" or "work for" and you should be able to get a lot from the class. If you don't have the right attitude, the time, or the discipline to learn the materials, then this course is not for you.

    I move to London for the UXDI Course and it's been one of my best decisions so far. The course was everything I needed and expected. I wanted to shift from Visual Design tu UX Design and GA gave me the skills and knowledge I needed. The 10 weeks are divided into different projects in groups and individualy. You have to work hard but at the same time you enjoy every single second that goes by. The Instructional team was very professional, supportive and engaging all the way through. You meet very creative fun and interesting people that by the end of the course become your 'GA Family', your friends. 

    Doing this course changed my life. After I finished the course I got the TA position for the following course and the Outcomes team was very supportive in helping us find a job. Before I finished the TA role I had done more than 8 interviews and had 2 job offers. I started my current job a week after which was my main goal of moving to London and I have to thank GA for that. 

    Have in mind that GA gives you the structure, tools, team and techniques you need to pursue your dream but you must work hard too. I'd recommend GA to everybody who wants to learn in an innovative environment surrounded by amazing people and creative minds.

    I studied the UX part-time course (2 nights a wk). Loved every minute I was there. It is faced pace and very informative. I learnt more in 10 weeks of this course than I did in some semesters at University. Really loved the staff, all very eager to help in any way they can. I was very sad it was over at the end of the 10 weeks.

    This place is a joke...they rob you of your money and run!!  I took the wdi course and it was a waste of money and time.  Do not go here, they will teach you nothing!!  if you struggle, all  they do is push you aside, instead of helping you figure out why you are.  The student services and outcome sucks too!! [NAME REDACTED] is not a good person and very rude!! as well as her coworker, [NAME REDACTED] they are too self-involved with their reputation then trying to help you out.  Do not fall into their scam....it is a waste of money.  they will tell you to quit your job to take the program and when you struggle they will try and convince you to drop the class.  They don't care about you, only about your money!!!

    The content was relevent, prepared in advance and presented in a simple, easy to read way. The teachers were extremely knowledgable in their area of expertise and no question was a silly question. Not only were the teachers available during the course of the day but were happy to stay back after class each day to answer any questions.

    Coming in from a low level degree of knowledge in digital marketing, I feel like I learned quite a bit and it's given me motivation to explore it and apply it to my career.
