    GREAT EXPERIENCE. LOVED THE ONLINE COURSE, WISH THEY OFFERED ONE IN JAVA AND OTHER LANGUAGES. WOULD DEFINITELY ATTEND AGAIN EVEN THOUGH IT WAS VERY EXPENSIVE.

    Good school, would recommend

    Learned a lot taking the Web Development immersive.  Instructors can be hit or miss --- I had one that was great and one that was not so great, but they both helped me learn a ton over the 3 months of class.  Finishing the course definitely does not get you a job easily,  and the job search was the most difficult/frustrating part.  But it all worked out okay as I'm now a contractor with Microsoft.

     

    Learned a lot, but there's always still more learn.

    Web Development Immersive

    Great program, good pace. Instructors have good availability and attitudes. Will help you while also encouraging you to learn/figure out how to fix things on your own. Worked well for me.

    OK, but could be more rigorous

    I can't speak for campuses across the country and world, but the New York campus I experienced was a tremendously helpful/open community of people interested in learning web development and growing in the tech industry. I never experienced (though I have heard stories) of people who felt ostracized or put down by those with more knowledge/skills. Overall, I think the community as a student is a good one for fostering learning.

    In terms of the coursework, we had very experienced i...

    Great, Minus Management

    General Assembly is great if you only focus on the teachers, the environment, the students, the curriculum, and the outcomes. But, after all, these are for-profit businesses. More and more you started to see these things creep into life at general assembly. While they say not everyone who has the money can get in, I'm not sure I believe it. They have less of a focus on paying upper echelon teachers now than when they started. There's more of a reliance on TAs who get paid fairly low amount...

    Life Changing

    I truly enjoyed my bootcamp experience. While I think the market is currently oversaturated, it was a great experience and career changing vehicle for those of us who have already gone through it. Everyone I know who went through the bootcamp has gotten a job in the field. Mission accomplished.

    Intro to Adobe Photoshop

    This class was a complete waste of time. The teacher sped through all of the crucial aspects of basic Photoshop, but spent an exorbitant amount of time going over the simplest tasks (like opening a new file). I expected to come out of the class having at learned at least the basics of inserting an image onto a different background. The teacher was obviously very skilled with the program, but was not good at slowing down to repeat herself and show how she made her changes. The teacher also ...
