    Love this bootcamp

    I attended this bootcamp as part of the Adobe Digital Academy program, and this bootcamp proved valuable. I came in with hopes on brushing up my react knowledge, since I was a very beginner. The instructor, Kareem, was superb, and I came out feeling a lot more confident. I am now doing an internship at Adobe using React, and the projects and the lessons I learned were all very applicable. I just wish we could have gone over more React concepts such as Redux or Hooks. I also would have pr...

    Not worth the money, but they'll take yours anyway

    IN SHORT: Don't take online javascript at General Assembly. You won't gain the skills needed to be competitive in the coding industry. As a middle school teacher I know what good learning looks like, and this online class is simply not doing enough.

    I was let go from my teaching job during the recession and was desperately looking to provide for my family. I've always dabbled in programming so I decided to go that direction. After researching for a course I could afford I signe...

    Switching to a Career in Data

    I did the GA Data Science Immersive course in September 2019.
    It was a complete career change, having spent 7 years in payroll and accounts payable, I was able to switch to a career in data. I am now a Data Engineer so I got the best outcome I could have wished for. 
    The facilities at GA Sydney are great, so many new people to meet with regular social events. There is a sparkling shared kitchen and work space areas. The staff are great.
    I think the curriculum needs to include mo...

    GA's UXDI Bootcamp was definitely worth it!

    For the 3 years leading up to taking General Assembly's UX Design Immersive, I had been struggling to find the right career path for me, and I was searching for something that would help me upskill and make myself marketable as a job applicant. Prior to this program I had paid $1000s to career coaches, trying to get help with my resume and applying to jobs as project managers, but the results were lack-luster. 

    Then in October 2019, I looked at GA's UX program again, I compared it...

    Great Value, Loved it!

    I really enjoyed the experience of completing the UXD Immersive at General Assembly in downtown LA. I truly believe that the education I received there and the experience that I gained is worth every penny spent to make it happen. A month and some change later, I'm still job hunting (amidst a global pandemic) and I'm very well supported by the Outcomes team in staying focused and continuing to apply for jobs-- it's just not a great time to be out of work and seeking. I am glad that I too...

    Great Content Poor Execution

    February 6, 2020
    I quit the program in the last two weeks due to finding a job and poor execution by Management.  Our instructor changed three times and we had not one class on algorithms or Big-O notation, reasons I took the course.  They did not respond to my letter until after three emails.

    The Honest Truth

    I took General Assembly with the intent to make a career pivot into the tech industry by thinking I was going to learn the tools to become a software engineer.  I ended up getting a role in Web Development. However, it was me, and mostly me, that set my path for this role.  General Assembly just provided a base. 

    I had learned a whole lot throughout this boot camp, that is for sure. But, we have to understand that people are paying up to 22K (through the catalyst program) to t...

    Career change via Software Engineering Immersive

    Prior to participating in this bootcamp I had just made a complex decision to career change from elementary teaching to software engineering. I had somehow made a large friend circle of software engineers who offered their support and advice as well as two career changing friends who had just completed the General Assembly Software Engineering Immersive. I had tried to teach myself coding multiple times over my teaching career and decided a bootcamp would be the best kick to really help me...

    Best Decision I've Ever Made

    Enrolling in the SEI program at GA was the best decision I've ever made. The staff at GA are wonderful, and the instructors are super knowledgeable, and more importantly happy to help you with anything. I think anyone with a poor review of GA wasnt there for the right reasons, it's not high school or university, you dont have to be there, you chose to go. Those that make the most of the resources there are the ones that will be successful. There's a lot of course content...

    Missing Something

    My experience with General Assembly started off very rocky. I'm not your traditional student just looking for another class they can take for the experience. I wanted to learn a new skill for a career change. I think that goal was met; however, I am still looking for employment in the field. I've joined a few Meetup groups and went to one conference, so I'm going to keep trying.
