    Front End Web Dev Part Time

    I took this course it went by very fast and if you do not have a clue going in you are in trouble. The TA's are great but I still have not found a position it has been 1.5 years. The hiring process is also grueling right now. I don't blame GA for anything, this course was tough and they assume you have some knowledge. They do not inform you that you should have some knowledge before entering.

    Great wealth of knowledge

    I recently completed the UX design class at GA and absolutely loved it. My instructors were incredibly helpful and gave me the base I needed to start building my portfolio and applying to jobs. I also appreciate GA's devotion to their alumni network. The class is intense and time consuming, but well worth it.

    Great instructors, poor curriculum

    The instructors were great and very helpful and the TAs were very generous with their time.

    However, it's a real grind and the job placement help (they call it "outcomes") was a real joke. Outcomes should have been something tacked on at the end of the actual web development training instead of interspersed throughout (ideally, it could have been optional, giving students the option of not paying for that part of the class.)

    At the end of...

    Gives the tools to launch you

    General Assembly is an awesome bootcamp, if a bootcamp is what you're seeking. In the three month immersive, we've covered a ton of Data Science topics. I went from hardly using the command line to being able to use a variety of python libraries to query databases, scrape web data, clean and organize data, find trends and patterns in it, build models to analyze and predict it, and communicate results visually from that. This makes up the foundation of data science, and is definitely not so...

    If you are considering the Data Science Immersive, RUN AWAY!!

    General Assembly has bitten off way more than they can chew with their Data Science Immersive program. We are told the one new instructor we finally got, weeks after the first one quit, does know what he is doing. However, I am not really sure since he has the TA cramming on the weekends to teach us material and then isn't here when she can't answer the questions we have.

    They are also getting ready to recruit for the next running of the Data Science Immersive which is completely...

    GA London Data Science - Great course!

    The range and depth of content was perfect for a 'beginner' to enter the world of data science. It also provides a good opportunity for devs (who already have a good understanding of programming) to explore types of business problem they may not have been exposed to before.

    I would recommend to get the most out of the course participants spend 6 months (c. 100 - 200 hours) making sure they understand the basic of Python and stats before enrolling. There were some members on the cou...
