    So you’re thinking about taking the Front-End Web Development at General Assembly?

    This was a blog post I wrote in 2015 about my experience at GA that I still this is relevant. 

    This was a really good experience for me. My situation is not going to be like everyone else’s, so let me give you the low down on why, for me, it was a good fit.

    Changed my life

    I attend the Web Development Immersive program and it completely changed the course of my life and career.  Everyday I am shocked and elated that this program worked so well for me and my peers.  I recommend GA to anyone I know looking to make the switch into tech.  I loved my experience and am grateful everyday for choosing to enroll at GA.

    BEST SCHOOL EVER!!

    I can say without a doubt that going to  General Assembly is the best thing I have done in life thus far. I went to multiple different open houses for coding boot camps and GA was the one that stuck out to me because of how open and friendly the staff was. I felt like home. My 12 week during the WDI course was like nothing I have taken before. It was rigorous but very rewarding. I was skeptical of the idea that I could learn everything to become a proficient web developer in 12 weeks and b...

    General Assembly turned me from a Teacher to a Designer

    I joined GA in hopes of changing my career from being an elementary school teacher to being a designer for education technology. I had always been interested in user interfaces but didn't really see any college programs that would give me the value that I needed in such a short amount of time. The UX Design Immersive program at GA peaked my interest because I was told that I would learn about the user experience design process from research to visual design in 10 weeks. After I joine...

    GA Melbourne, Australia. My experience of a great journey through a career change

    Firstly to give a true and fair review of the General Assembly bootcamp I have to say I'm not paid by them or have any affiliations to market their business. I can choose not to say anything but I feel that I have to because I believe there are many people considering a career change into the tech industry (like myself) but do not know who to trust to help them get a job at the end of it. My review will be for GA in Melbourne, Australia, as I'm not sure if the outcomes are the same in othe...

    Web Development Immersive / Product Manager

    I can't thank General Assembly enough for the great experience that I had. Prior to GA, I was working a retail job where I wasn't feeling fullfiled with the work I was doing. At the time, I was also self-learning how to code through Codeacademy, free tutorials from Apple's iBooks, and attending meet-up events after work. One morning while riding the subway to work, I came upon an advertisement that would encourage me to take the leap into changing my career.

    GA wasn't just about a coding experience, it has also given me an understanding of being adaptable to the ups and downs that we had experienced in the beginning of each unit.
