    Product Management part-time 10-week course. Instructors were great and cirriuculum was informative. However, GA hasn't done to help graduates of that course (and many courses in general as I heard from others) with job opportunities.

    I decided on taking the course through Genera Assembly based on it's general reputation and the fact that I knew a few people who had completed the course, albiet in other cities, to much career success. Overall, I am quite pleased with my decision as I started my new job about 2 months after finishing the course and I really love what I do now. The curriculum was challenging and fast-paced, and there was always someone on-hand to help if I didn't understand a concept. I know the cohort after mine ran with an updated curriculum. This shows that the staff does take into account the needs of the industry and sets up its students to fill the present gaps. I found this slightly frustrating as I wish they had implemented these changes sooner. My instructor was super knowledgable and experienced. He always did a great job of explaining concepts, oftentimes having to present the same ideas in different ways to ensure that everyone understood what was going on. He encouraged a lot of questions and it was very rare to see him get frustrated with us students not understanding a lesson. The job assistance provided was also really helpful. The careers team did a great job helping us translate our past experience into something that sounded good to employers, though they did some overwhelmed by the sheer number of students they had to help.

    Overall, as I said, I am quite pleased with this course. I learned a lot...or at least enough to help me secure a job in web development (there's so much to learn!). I think my biggest complaint is that I'm not sure it's a super selective program, and some of the student did not take the course as seriously as others. This put a strain on the instructors who were sometimes forced to cater to students who hadn't done their homework, or didn't pay as much attention in class, instead of the students who really wanted to learn and springboard their new careers. As I said, I was hired quite quickly post course so this idea didn't affect me too much, but I know a few studnets, along with myself, did feel quite frustrated by the stalling in class more than a few times throughout the course. I believe this feedback was given to the team and steps have been planned to rectify for future courses, however.

    Remote experience was excellent and way better then I'd expected. We were still able to have group/partnered activities and engage with the instructor. The teacher, Aditi Joshi is a true master of her field and was a honest pleasure to learn from. The course was the perfect size and the content was dynamic. It felt as contemporary, new and ahead of the trend as possible. I really, really enjoyed it!

    This course was really fast paced and difficult, but I learned more in a short period of time than I ever have in my life. We learned to use Python programming to apply statistics and predictive modeling techniques on real sets of data. If you've know Python or R and are interested in learning foundational level Data Science, this course is perfect for you.

    Passionate instructor, fun projects, great peers, real world skills. I've built two full stack JavaScript websites since taking the class, but I think this speaks to my interest in the subject matter more than GA. The class offers an excellent, supported introduction to JS.

    Over the last few years, I have taken TWO courses at General Assembly. I enrolled in both the Front End Web Development Course and the Business Fundamentals and Tactics course. Both were TOP NOTCH learning experiences.

     

    When it came to the FEWD program, I had tried many times to learn to code on my own and had picked up on HTML and CSS quickly. The first part of the program was focused on HTML and CSS, which came more easily to me given my prior experience. When we began to learn Javascript during the second half of the program, this is where I found the MOST value from the GA instructional team. Javascript was challenging and it was the time and attention from my TA and instructors that enabled me to truely understand this language.

     

    The second course I took was Business Fundamentals and Tactics. This class was very stimulating. Both of my instrcturos were ex-McKinsy consultants, VERY bright. I thought it was a great mix of practical skills and soft skills -- we covered things like the business canvas model or deep excel work on how to build a financial model paired with stimulating conversastion around business case studies. During one of the sessions, we had a guest speaker come in from Inbev and he was talking about supply chain and operations of a beverage company, which was very fascinating.

    With no background in UX design, I took the UXD part-time programme out of curiosity. It has given me a good foundation to UX design with practical elements incorporated into the 10-week programme. The instructor was excellent sharing with us numermous real-life examples. Really enjoyed the learning experience at GA!

    I took the Digital Marketing Circuit simply to learn about the field, even though I am not a marketing professional. I found the course to be super interesting, and for an online course, they did a GREAT job of keeping me focused. Here's what I liked about it: 

    -There's a good split between slide presentations and videos 

    -Knowledge checks keep you honest

    -The projects are fun

    -The workload is manageable. Not too much, and broken out in sections. 

    Like I said, I think everyone should take this course. Marketing is such a key component of any business these days so I'm really happy I learned about it. If you're an entrepreneur who doesn't know much about building an audience, this is particularly a great class for you. 

    I highly recommend this course! Great way to learn. Thanks GA for the great experience!

    If you have experience with excel this course is a great way to learn SQL and the instructors were so buttoned up. There was always help when you needed it. You should have some familiarity with excel since they jump right in and the first two weeks or so fly past excel stuff. Majority of the course is for SQL. Would recommend!
