    Web Development Immersive NYC

    Overall, an incredible opportunity that you can and will see the rewards from if you are willing to put the time and effort in. Having absolutely no technical background 6 months prior to application/acceptance of the web dev bootcamp, I am now a full time web developer. It is one of the most difficult and time consuming thing I have ever done. It is 12 weeks of non stop work, realistically somewhere between 60-80/hrs of work per week. Very fast paced, and a TON of information, much of whi...

    UXD-Melbourne

    A terrific course that covered off a lot of ground. The entire UX journey is part of the curriculum and in the most part was very interesting and enjoyable.

    As this course was the part time version of UXD unfortunately there is not much emphasis given to assistance transitioning into a UX career, although in saying that I am now confident to conduct my own case studies and apply UX thinking to them.

    The delivery of the course was by 3 people from the industry who ranged...

    Front End Web Dev -- Part-Time -- SF

    I came to GA with no programming background and I'm 47 y.o.  I started the 10 week course with one instructor.  I lasted two classes (of 20) before dropping.  The instructor was nice, but he had never taught before and it showed.  No preparation -- just winging the lectures.  He knew the concepts but not communicate them.  No go.

    I re-enrolled in the next 10 week course and it was awesome.  Sarah Holden in the star in SF.  In every class she had 30 to 80 slides, a cheat sheet, li...

    he cGreat coding school. A lot depends on the instructors. Classes can feel crowded. The curriculum was relevant then but less so now (may have changed).

    A Great Opportunity

    Enrolling in the full-time Web Development Immersive (WDI) at General Assembly was one of the best decisions of my life. The people and instructors I met there were incredible; we have fantastic relationships to this day, and as a freelancer, my network has been utterly invaluable in building my own self-sustained business. I highly recommend the school and the course; do your homework, do all of the pre-work, and make sure this is what you want to do. Then, spend all of your time learning...

    Good Experience

    The intensity of coursework seemed appropriate and I came out of the Immersive with what I feel is a strong foundation in web development. They may want to consider expanding the length of the course to better prepare people for the job market with further skills, as it seems getting in at the entry level requires more experience than the Immersive provides. Stronger internship placement would be a boon as well. The instructors were very good, dealt well with the varying skill levels in th...

    Comprehensive Preparation

    I think GA delivered on what they promised. At times, it felt like glorified, guided self-education. A lot of it involves googling answers to problems. You know what? That's fine, really. That's often what you do in the real world. Sometimes, I felt like the instruction was a little too hands off for the price tag, though. I'd still do it again. No regrets.

    The basic jist is it will prepare you for working in a web job. It's heavily technology-based, light on computer science an...

    Web Development Immersive - Washington, DC

    I had a good experience attending General Assembly - my teachers were knowledgeable and engaging, my classmates were awesome, and the material was good for the change I was making. 

    I think my overall impression since having left is not great though. There is no interest or support for students after they leave and GA misses a huge mark by not pursuing alumni engagement. 

    Lots of potential and good opportunities here, especially in the DC network, but I think this GA te...

    Web Development Immersive

    I had a great experience at General Assembly's Web Development Immersive. I came into it with virtually no programming experience, other than the pre-work we were assigned after enrolling. It's a cliche, but it is definitely a situation where you get out of it what you put into it, and I worked as hard as I could tolerate throughout the 12 weeks (and I continue to do so), because I knew how much catching up I would have to do to be able to market myself and my skills.
