    Software Engineering Immersive Remote

    GA was the best experience of my life, I had virtually no coding experience going into the program and came out with the vast knowledge I desired going into it and I loved every second of it. All of the instructors do a wonderful job from the get go setting expectations and guidelines and really help and support you through the course. Yes the course is difficult and fast paced but it is designed to get you job ready in 3 months and teach you all of the necessary skills, not just coding ...

    Software Engineering Immersive Remote

    General Assembly changed my life. GA makes it clear from day one that the course will not be easy. They help to prepare one mentally to face the emotional rollercoaster of learning to program. When I came to GA, I had left the safety of my job with benefits to bet on myself again. I was not let down. The ~12 weeks in the course are hard, really hard. It is so rewarding to graduate knowing that I gained valuable skills and can now build beautiful, functional web applications. This has ope...

    A worthwhile investment

    Enrolling in the Software Engineering Immersive was the best career move I've made. The course is a significant investment of time and money, but it was worth it. I had wonderful instructors who didn't just teach programming, but also explicitly taught a lot of the meta-skills around software development. The Outcomes career-coaching portion of the course was invaluable as well. The best part was being in a cohort with around 20 other students, who were my first community in tech, and it...

    Software Engineering Immersive - Flex

    I finished up the SEI Flex course a few months ago and I'm so glad I made the decision to enroll in this course.  I was provided exceptional instructional support and I now have a strong foundation in some of the most popular languages and frameworks being used today.  I specifically learned JavaScript, Ruby, Node.js, Express, Rails, and React but I also believe General Assembly provided me with the tools to successfully teach myself any other languages or frameworks I might be intereste...

    GA Graduate and experience!

    Overall I do not regret my decision of taking my career to the next level by attending GA's 3-month Software Engineer Immersive Program. Although a had a CS bachelor's degree, I decided to invest in this program to step up my game into trending technologies like ReactJS and backend languages like Ruby and Python. I met some amazing instructors who polished and helped me sharpen my programming skills as well as design patterns. I truly believe I've learned fundamental skills that have ben...

    Software Engineering Immersive Remote

    I had an amazing experience with General Assembly's 3 month Software Engineering Immersive program. After a COVID-19 sabotaged my ability to attend college and work full time, I thought my dreams of breaking into the software industry were going to be seriously delayed. Fortunately, I was able to get enrolled in the three month immersive program and get my goals back on track for less money than I would have spent on my degree! 
    It is still amazing to me to go back and look at my skil...

    5 stars for General Assembly, where I found my calling as a UX designer!  There is so much to recommend - from the subject matter to the collaborative learning environment.  The Outcomes support (career coaching) was a game changer in confidence-building and helping me to set realistic expectations and goals. It's clear that instructors and career coaches work together to provide the most up-to-date guidance based on industry trends. Class projects are designed to set you up for success ...

    Great experience being in the immersive. Gave a solid understanding of UX methodologies and concepts. Remote learning can be difficult, but GA made phenomenal efforts to make it feel like you're in a classroom setting. I felt supported by my instructors and peers while attending the program.

    Stellar experience

    I am recent grad of the User Experience Design Immersive (UXDI) program at GA! First off, let me just start by saying that the experience was incredible and totally worth it!

    Remote learning is extremely difficult. I imagine that remote teaching is just as tough, if not more. Teaching adults and keeping them engaged, is an especially added challenge. The instructional team of my cohort took those challenges with stride, and went above and beyond to cultiv...

    Better than expected

    I was hesitant to go to General Assembly due to having a poor experience at a coding bootcamp in Utah. Due to that experience, I felt jaded by the whole bootcamp experience and assumed they were all the same, that it would be just another revolving door. Come to find out, that was the furthest thing from the truth at GA. I asked a lot of questions to the instructor and to the people at the finance department. I really pressed on them and they answered my questions genuinely and was not t...

    Prior to starting the Software Engineering Immersive Remote (SEIR) programing at General Assembly, I didn't know what to expect.

    Happy with my decision

    Overall I do not regret my decision to attend GA.  I met some amazing people, and feel that I learned skills that will benefit me in my career change.  It's been 10 months since I've graduated and I still do not have a job.  The timing of when I finished school (right at the start of COVID) definitely affected employment, but I do feel like administration was a little misleading when it came to how soon I could expect to find work and gave somewhat unrealistic expectations about that pro...
