    Great if you want to break into coding

    A really great program for breaking into Software Engineering! It’s fast paced but my instructors were very knowledgeable, and helped me and my fellow classmates keep up. We studied the MERN stack along with Python and Django, and created some great projects along the way. I've also gained resources I never would have had before. I'm very glad I deiced to take this boot-camp, I know I couldn't have learned this on my own especially without my great instructors help! Would recommended to ...

    SEI Course

    Even though a tech bootcamp is very "you get what you put in" when it comes to the work and building connections, for a 13k+ price tag it is absolutely reasonable to have expectations regarding the quality of education and how you are treated by staff. Since day one, getting in touch with the individuals that you literally need to communicate with as part of the process was near impossible. Not long after I got to their outcomes stage I was hit by a car and hospitalized with broken bones...

    UX Design Course

    This course was an introduction into UX Design. However it covered more than just design practices—the course also went into user research, usability testing, competitor analysis and portfolio building/job hunting.

    Making a Career Change, Consider a Bootcamp

    When I decided to make a shift from being a business analyst and database admin to more design and user-oriented work, I chose to take the General Assembly (GA) User Experience Design Immersive. Candidly, there may never be a perfectly designed boot camp for you, it's all about balancing trade-offs, which I think GA did well. In particular, huge credit is due to the passion and hard work put in by our instructors and their real-world experience anecdotes. We touched on the tools, process...

    Great curriculum. Amazing instructors. The real prize is the friends you make along the way.

    :::Curriculum:::UX is an ever-changing field and GA recognizes this very well. They are constantly updating their curriculum based on feedback from instructors, students, and industry trends. All of the topics and tools covered were relevant and helpful. Attending UX events or reading UX articles really demonstrated how much information I learned in the bootcamp. 
    Building a portfolio was one of my key goals for taking this course. By the end, I had a ...

    UXD Immersive - You will only succeed if you put in the work

    Intro:In my experience, the online UXD Immersive was an amazing environment to learn the basic foundations of UXD. Don’t think however that going through a bootcamp is an easy and effortless way to make a career switch and a surefire way to score a UXD job post-course. The curriculum, instructors, and career coach give you the tools to become successful, but you need to go above and beyond to make the most out of it.

    UX Design Immersive

    This was one of the best experiences I have had! The instructors are veterans in the field, extremely patient and helpful, and willing to help whenever needed. Not only were the instructors incredible, but I have met some of the most talented and friendly people through this bootcamp. Although the price is a bit hefty, the experience and outcome are worth every penny.

    Great curriculum and instructors

    I was a student, then an instructor, and then got hired in the industry I was concentrating in. I took the Data Science Intensive and found the curriculum to be solid and the instructors very knowledgeable. Given the intensive nature of the course, outside effort was required but extremely rewarding. Do NOT go into an intensive unprepared; do the pre-work and commit to the course as if it were a job.

    Great program to kickstart your engineering career—but you have to do the work!

    Before I go into detail, I want to make it clear that this is a 12-week course. You can't learn everything in 12 weeks. You should go into this knowing that you're going to pull all-nighters, cry, and become frustrated—but you have tons of support and resources available to you, so take advantage of it! I enjoyed GA's course. I feel like we learned all of the things that we'd want to learn from an instructor and not on our own. This is an incredibly fast-paced class. I was in the remote ...

    Software Engineering Immersive - Highly Recommended!

    I have always been interested in working with computers and after being surrounded by some amazing software engineering friends, I decided I wanted to delve deeply into coding projects and problem-solve just like them. Fast forward to my General Assembly experience, I graduated from the Software Engineering Immersive program where I developed skills in JavaScript, React, Ruby on Rails, and other technical skills that allowed me to build four projects over the course of the twelve-week fu...
