    I thought it was very interesting and presented a different approach to design than I had previously thought of. I learnt a lot and felt that there was strong support from tutors. 

    The downside was that towards the end resources did feel a little stretched and there was not much support in the way of job vacancies and industry involvement.

    I took the Front-End Web Development course a few years ago, and my experience at General Assembly was subpar. I know a lot of people who swear by and love it, but this wasn’t the case for me. I did meet some really nice people, and our TA was also very helpful. This class taught me a few things and while I am thankful for that, it was a ton of money, and way too much for what I got out of it. The teacher I had, although very smart and skilled, was not great at teaching beginners.

    And I will add that this was definitely not a beginners-level class by any means – but it would be a great class for anyone who has a background in or aptitude for coding, or anything computer sci-related. GA should definitely have some sort of pre-requisite coursework for this class, because there was way too much content jammed into this program for a newbie. HTML and CSS should be in their own class, JavaScript in its own. The pace was also too fast, we were given assignments that were extremely challenging and there was not enough time to master the basics.

    I also feel that we should have been given more time to work on our final project in class, instead we spent our time making card games or nerding out in JavaScript that would stump most developers. I had no interest in game design, I wanted to learn about web design, and the class didn’t approach it from a start-to-finish process. It jumped around.

    And although my teacher was talented and knew his stuff, his style didn't work for me. Being told by my teacher to “Google it” or “figure it out” if I have questions or am lost is not helpful. I didn’t even know what I was supposed to be Googling or figuring out! Understood that after class ends I will be on my own, but when you’re in school, you should be able to feel comfortable asking your teacher questions and getting the help you need, especially when you’re paying a lot of money to be there. That’s the whole point of taking a class, and why I specifically chose to take this class, because I thought there would be that guidance. If I wanted to figure out web development on my own, I’d Google things and save myself the $3,500. I’m not sure I would return for another go-around with GA. Maybe if it were a different course, but that’s a big maybe.

    In order to get people to sign up for classes, GA makes a lot of claims about how the program will run and the success rate of those who complete the course. They claim that 6 months after completing the program,  99% of students will have jobs within their field of study. With my cohort, it was more like 20%, and I would say it was about the same for the cohorts that came before and after me. 

    What you get with this program is highly dependent for the instructor you get. Many of the instructors I have meet seem to only have 2-3 years of experience in the field they are instructing, which really is not enough. I have heard some GA admissions offers reference a GA bootcamp as an alternative to a 4 year degree - that is absurd. I think that the people who come out of this program and get jobs either get them because GA is directly referring them into role (which they seem to only select a few people from each class to do this with). 

    The program also claims that they will help you gain access to working professions with multiple lunch and learns, that only happened once in my class. 

    My advice to anyone considering enrolling is to reach out to people within your region who are working in the field and find out what they think of General Assembly. I think that in some areas, GA has a bad reputation and many recruiters will not even look at a resume with GA listed, so get to know what the field is like in your area before enrolling.

    Three-hour tele lectures followed by four-hour lab practices.  In many ways it was like Groundhog Day.  We had one day to learn a lesson or a program, and the very next day *poof* a brand-new lesson to learn.  At times it was challenging and you feel like you're falling off the boat, especially if you didn't quite master or understand the previous day's lesson.

    However, if you're lucky to have a strong and resourceful support group in the form of a good TA and sharing/caring students, it makes a tremendous difference.  I don't think I would have gotten as far as I did w/o these two assets.

    Also I'm past the 110 day mark with no job.  Plenty of interviews, though. I've had interviews with some top tech firms (Google and Facebook).  I doubt I could have gotten my foot in the door w/o doing this bootcamp.  Good career counseling too, but at times you feel you're pushed down the line because a brand-new cohort is coming up.  

     

    If you do decide to take this bootcamp, gird your loins for at least 3-4 months unemployment afterwards, and be prepared to network like crazy after class and after the program ends.

    I've been in the Digital marketing industry for around 3 years but I'm entirely self-taught, I have a background in sales & IT which has helped immensely but have never had a complete overview of the strategy around campaigns. I decided to undertake the Digital Marketing course at General Assembly in order to bring everything I've learned together and take my career to the next level.

    Overall I think the course was highly valuable and would suggest it to anyone who Is interested in digital marketing strategy. It assumes no prior knowledge which is good and bad, I found myself bored at some points as it delt with my day to day tasks. The content that I had no prior exposure to was excellent and engaging. The instructors were knowledgable and always happy to lend a hand. It requires quite a bit of time investment but its worth it in the end

    At first I was hesitant to join the remote (online) crash course for User Experience Design. At the start of the class, the instructor even mentioned that we wouldn't get to dive as deep into the material compared to the 3 month Design course. This frustrated me as I was spending a lot of time and money to take the 1 week course. 

    But as  the week progressed, my worries began to disappear. I learned so much in a span of 5 days, and all of the students were able to develop a full case study presentation of the projects that they were working on over the course of that week. The Zoom video conferencing helped keep the students accountable for staying engaged an actively participating through the course of the week. Zoom also allowed us to go into break out rooms were students could work on project discussions in small groups. 

    In some ways, I found this online 1 week class to be even more engaging that a regular sized classroom, because our class size was so small. I am very satisfied w/ this program and how the instructor facilitated learning over just one week!

    Aditi Joshi was beyond impressive! I was pleasently suprised that General Assembly offered this class and it is so worth it. Whether you are a project, product, or program manager the knowledge you gain from taking this class is invaluable.

    Good course that covered most of the flow of a normal UX process from creation to prototype. It would have been nice to also look at UX from a BAU or day-to-day perspective rather than always from a brand new project
