    The course is intense and rewarding at the same time. 5 projects in 10 weeks, and juggling with lessons, seminars, meetups and schoolwork.
    However, I met friends that stayed beyond the end of the course, and valuable knowledge that helped me where I am working now. Also, GA has an excellent network of alumni and coursemates where i can seek help from. GA is also helpful in terms of assisting us with our job search and subsidies.

    General Assembly created a very easy-to-follow workflow for the classes. It was a very 'hands-on' approach, where we could put into practice all we learned. A very good comprehensive course, yet easy to follow. The instructors were phenomenal! Since they are real professionals working with the topics on a daily basis, they could give us a real insight into the professional day-by-day scenarios and examples. They were always available for that extra support as well. I'm really pleased with this course!

    I finished the UXDI course online and I think its a great program, but it lacks a lot of the in person experience that doesn't make it very worth it. If you thrive in a classroom setting, consider skipping online to either wait for campuses to reopen or take a course with a cheaper school. 
    Each campus does things differently, so there's a disconnect of what some people got for opportunities ot experiences than others. Upon being accepted, I was informed the online experience would be no different than in person, but it does lack a lot of that networking and informational experience you would get. 
    Outcomes helps you with your job materials and searching, but it can be a bit disconnected from your instructors (like learning something in class you covered from outcomes a month ago). Not to mention, different locations will handle things differently. Others got to do a sprint working with developers and engineers to complete a project, but our class only got a three day outcomes sprint, which wasn't nearly as good as that would've been.
    Other than the negatives, if you like remote learning and can devote 3+ months to GA, I'd recommend them, just know its a lot of work and dedication. You'll meet great people and brilliant instructors. 
    My advice would be to start crafting your portfolio and network as early as you possibly can. Portfolios are worked on later in the course and it can be a lot to try and write case studies and design a website layout at the same time. Get the layout done first and make sure you get pictures of everything as you work. Hiring managers and recruiters like to see a lot of pictures!

    I had an excellent time in my 12-week immersive bootcamp through General Assembly. I felt like the pacing was adequate, the lectures were rich with information, and the structure was strong. In this field it is hard to grasp the ambiguity of it all, but as you push through it becomes easier and easier and you begin to realize that it all comes together. My instructional team was always there when needed and gave helpful advice. I felt accepted and even praised for my human experience. This is a field of endless opportunities and I feel like my time at GA was well spent!

    Honestly, this course isn't worth it. The instructors fly through the material and only offer minimal support. The TA's are great, but sometimes lazy. The outcomes program, and student success portion of the program is an absolute joke. It really just felt like they got your money, and that's all that matters to them. It definitely depends on your instructor, but unfortunately I was stuck with an awful unit 1 instructor, so by unit 2 I was already so lost and couldn't follow along. 

    Some of the staff are very condescending and demoralizing when you reach out to them about issues that you're having. They talk down to you a lot, and when you speak up for yourself they have a lot of issues with it and kind of bully you. I withdrew from the course because I was intimidated by the staff (not the instructors) and they said they don't give refunds.

    I have always been interested in learning more about data analysis, but finding a suitable program was a challenge. I was recommended to attend a series of webinars held by GA to learn the difference between data science and analytics. After the sessions, I was able to pin down the program choice. 

    I then was able to easily connect with an advisor from GA who made himself accessible to share as much information on the program, process, and fees (smooth). He took the time to learn about my goals and motivation to enroll in the program, he then shared advice on the most suitable course format to match my learning style. Great enrollment journey!

    The instructor and support staff were very accomodating and gave us time, and made us feel welcomed. More importantly, they were patient with the class knowing that many have been out of school for a while. The content was spot on what was mentioned in the description, industry-related skills that you can pick up or polish as you go (what you see is what you get). Challenging, frustrating at times, but the instructor and staff helped us push through. Always providing feedback on what went well and what to improve on. The course carried 3 projects which continuously push you to learn and practice what you learn in class. 

    It was more learning a skill VS GA helping/supporting you with career opportunities. Surely it would have been amazing to have 1-1 chats with a coach/career counselor on how to tackle the potential employers in a certain location etc. Maybe this would be feedback for GA. I am looking forward to learning more about GA Alumni community and the kind of continuous learning opportunities. 

    The course wasn't the cheapest,  I wasn't company-sponsored so it was a decent investment. GA helped by offering an installment plan, but I wish they would consider individual students and offer them some sort of price reduction during uncertain times. Other than that I would strongly recommend GA and the DA course.

    The course was very effective in practicing the skills of a UX designer. As one would expect, the course really depends on the instructors and the groupmates you are taking the course with, but I saw that General Assembly tries their best to keep that become a hindrance to the students by checking in with each student and group to support them with any issues, whether it be work-related or issues between group members. Overall, it's worth taking, if you can afford it and can handle fast-paced learning and some workload.

    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 preferred learning Python/Django as the back end over Ruby on rails.

    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 signed up for general assembly javascript online (b/c coronavirus).

    The first class was spent installing everything and getting github working. I was using windows and the teacher had never taught a student on windows before, so he couldn't help me get everything started and pointed me in the direction of articles that should help me. They didn't. I had to figure out how to emulate the unix termainal on my system all by meself, and then distribute the information to the other underserved windows users. Though this was just the first class, I didn't want to rush to conclusions. I mean, we were only installing stuff, it must get better.

    Next class we took an hour to learn js arithmatic commands. An hour. I had already taught myself a decent amount of javascript and I knew it didn't take that long to learn a simple skill like this. When I talked to my advisor they said that this course was for absolute beginners and was going to move extremely slow. Unfortuneately they didn't mention this before the class started. Because of this and the underwhelming teaching of the second lesson I decided to withdrawl. Little did I know that because I had participated in the first class (the one that was just installing everything) I had forfieted the right to a full refund and General Assembly was going to walk away with a cool $400 of my money. My family's money. In the middle of a recession. For teaching me literally nothing.

    This is a company like any other and they will take your money if they can sell you the product. If you are able to learn on your own, do it. If you can afford to do a in-person intensive $16k class, do it. Though don't do this middling bs online course. You will regret it.
