    Pros:

    • Barcelona: The location is beautiful and affordable. I enjoyed living there immensely, was able to meet a lot of locals, and lots of great people in general. It's also relatively inexpensive and very walkable.
    • Staff: People are really friendly, and I want them to succeed
    • Instructors: About half of our instructors were great to fantastic and we learned a ton during their weeks.
    • Class size: We had just 10 people in my cohort and we really felt like a family by the end.
    • Atmosphere: It's very laid back, and a comfortable and safe feeling space.
    • Network: They have a good Barcelona network, which is great if you want to live there and have an EU visa.
    • Job assistance for EU citizens: They have a strong network in Barcelona and can get you interviews. Instructors and speakers will also be looking out for you and helping make connections. However, once my colleagues who are EU-citizens left Barcelona they found that assistance dropped off like a cliff and there was minimal communication. 
    • I learned a ton.

    Cons:

    • Staff: Despite their friendliness, commuication was a huge issue. Even before class started, I missed most of the Hangouts because I didn't realize the times were being posted to Slack. Emails were not returned in a timely manner before, during, and after my session. People were defensive when offered feedback. I was often told "So and so will contact you about your concern." and then silence.
    • Instructors: Two of our instructors were awful and it felt like they just wasted a week of our time which is a big deal when you are only studying for 6 weeks. We basically had to relearn everything we learned from our first JS teacher. They made up for the bad CSS class by bringing in a great instructor later on, but it meant we lost a day of working on our final project. 
    • Curriculum: It was frequently commented by my colleagues that it felt like we were being experimented on too much and I agree with them. We alternated between JS and Ruby instruction and the context switching was very confusing. They started us off the bat with Ruby and OO which was completely overwhelming for most people our first week. 
    • Visa sponsorhip for non-EU: You will probably not be able to find someone to sponsor you for a visa. I wanted to stay and it seemed like it should be doable (I was one of the strongest students in the cohort), but even though there was some interest ultimately what I heard was it's way too hard to sponsor and very few companies are willing to do it. You are limited to large foreign companies and even then it can take 3 months.
    • Job Assistance: Good or bad depending on your needs. I'm going to move this out of the bullet, so read on below.
    • We lost internet for a few days and last a ton of class time as a result. They didn't have a contingency plan so we had already lost almost two days before they found us a temp new space. Internet was pretty consistently bad the whole time we were there.

    Job Assistance:

    They were great while I was still in Barcelona, but as soon as I returned back to the states they went silent. I had previously decided with the cofounder that we would work on Barcelona until I left and then switch to SF. After two weeks of silence (I pinged a couple people during that time), I sent another email and this time they apologized and said it was a new guy's responsibility.

    I scheduled a Skype call with the new guy and I thought maybe things would improve. Well, he sent me a list of sites with job postings. And then the next week he sent me another email with one more site with a job posting. In the meantime I was adding the jobs I applied to on to a spreadsheet so they could see my progress.

    I did know that they would have less of a network in the states, but the cofounders are well connected. So I knew that it would take more effort on my part. However, job placement is absolutely crucial for any startup bootcamp, and Ironhack is expanding in to Miami. To succeed in the more competitive bootcamp market in the US, you need to cultivate relationships with companies that are specifically interested and willing to hire bootcamp students.

    My expectation was that they would reach out to companies and pitch Ironhack and their students– in other words be proactive. What actually happened was they checked my spreadsheet and if they knew someone there they put me in contact. Which is helpful and I don't want to discount that, except 2/3 of those contacts were for companies were I had already gotten myself an employee referral and since their contact wasn't in a position to hire me they couldn't really provide me any assistance. In my opinion this just isn't aggressive enough because if they can't hit a high placement % then they are doing good enough.

    Ironhack's response is that they are working hard and this is what they told me I'd get, so if this meets your expectations you wil be fine. If not job placement is really important to you, you may want to look elsewhere.

    Tl;dr: Can be good depending on your needs. They can help you get jobs in Barcelona if you are eligible to work there, but if you want a lot of help for a non-EU job search they are limited to providing contacts to companies you've applied to. So far from my cohort the only person placed through Ironhack was hired by Ironhack.

    Summary:

    It was a fun experience overall, and I don't regret it. I did learn a lot despite the hiccups. However, I can't help but feel like they could have done much better and the communication was consistently a huge issue. I felt frustrated by the time wasted because of bad or unprepared instructors and bad internet. I felt like they missed a lot of important topics such as code reviewing and interview prep. And job assistance didn't meet my expectations at all. So yeah, YMMV. Living in Barcelona though, that I can recommend with no hesistation.

    I came to Ironhack with very little coding experience; although I had always had an interest in it, I only managed to pick up a few concepts here and there through various online tutorials. I had already applied and gotten into a few programming bootcamps (back in the US) when I heard of Ironhack. I was attracted by its location- Barcelona is a beautiful place-, the fact that they had scholarships for women, and the overwhelmingly positive experiences the graduates seemed to have. 

    My first few weeks at Ironhack proved to be extremely difficult- a good portion of the people in my program had much more programming experience than I did, and it took some work to catch up and learn the materials at the same rate as my colleagues. Luckily for me, the entire staff at Ironhack- the teachers, TAs, administrative staff- were all extremely helpful in making sure I caught up and had the support necessary to make some progress. Ultimately, I ended up catching up- and although the program was constantly challenging (for everyone!), I learned so much more than I could have ever learned on my own... and my final project was selected to be in the top 5 projects of my cohort! 

    The staff were all wonderful, responsive and helpful; the curriculum was difficult and set at a fast pace, but it was thorough and I never once felt like I lagged behind or didn't learn a concept well enough.

    I was like many other people, skeptical about Ironhack and even coding bootcamps in general, but I did my research months before I joined. My experience has been that before, throughout, and after joining Ironhack, Ironhack is definitely the best coding bootcamp in Miami, FL (comparing it to Wyncode and UM). Not only is the building and location great, but the staff and fellow classmates make it every bit worth the while... plus career services!

    The material taught for Full-Stack Web Development is very relevant to the Miami tech community and for many locations nationally. I’m not going to say that I enjoyed every single thing that was taught because some of it (small portion) turned out to be irrelevant, but what’s great is that they take your feedback into consideration and can update the curriculum. I know the curriculum was updated to remove the irrelevant material and was replaced with better material for the cohort that followed mine.

    During, and after you graduate, you have extensive job assistance opportunities like (Linkedin and resume help and a career fair), you just have to make sure you’re putting in the effort. No one is guaranteed a job, nowhere are you really it’s all about your efforts in the job hunt, but you are guaranteed the skills and tools that will be relevant in the workforce for a Full-Stack Development job. I know the price is a factor for a lot of people, but you’ll find that it’s much cheaper than studying at a college/university and you’re done a lot sooner with a large skillset under your belt.

    I hope this helps remove any doubts you might have about joining Ironhack! :)

    Ironhack was perfect for the moment i was living when i first got here. I was looking forward to change my career completely. The school gave me new perspectives of what i could be and do and amplified my horizon through the events, talks and people that i met.
    Now, down to the chase:
    Positives: the content of the course is very complete (you get to know a little bit of everything), people that work here are awesome and eager to help you to have a great experience
    Negatives: disorganized (information, payment, etc), there's a sense of community that happens locally, but i don't sense it is a global community (something that they "sell")

    The Web Development Bootcamp was the best experience of the past years of my life, both professionally and personally. The teachers and TAs are very competent and helpful. They put a lot of effort into making sure the curriculum focuses on the most relevant/current topics and technologies. Mili and the career team are amazing - they support you from day one. The whole team really creates a positive and supportive learning atmosphere, so you never feel embarrassed to ask a question or ask for help when you're struggling. And in the end everyone celebrates everyone else's achievements in the projects and job hunt! I got two job offers within two weeks of finishing the course. I took a job in Vienna with a starting salary of €42K annually plus benefits and a relocation bonus. This course really empowered me to believe in myself as a coder and change from a career where I felt very stuck, undervalued, and unhappy.

    I decided to do a bootcamp in data analysis at Ironhack and it was one of my best decisions ever!

     

    I did this bootcamp far away from  my hometown, because I wanted to have a total change. And it was good. Away from home, away from distraction of my daily life, I could focus 100% on it. But this is also neccessary. You don´t only spend 8 hours a day there to become a data analyst, you put your whole effort on it (and this means always more than 8 hours working). However you spend this "working" hours with your new colleagues, your new friends, your new family! The great thing is, they are all so interested in achieving your common goal - to become a data analyst in 9 weeks, that the way towards this goal is also a lot of fun. Sure, the time is very hard and I got to my personal limits, but when you organize your daily life well, focus on it to 100% and get this great support from your team mates and the amazing ironhack staff, you will do it! 

    I´m still impressed what I was aible to achieve during this 9 weeks. I never expected this. I had no previous knowledge, now I´m able to write codes in python, create beautiful plots in tableau and predict future sales based on machine learning and many other cool new things.

    If you decide to do a bootcamp at Ironhack, I recommend you to ask who´s going to be your teacher, ask previous alumnis or the ironhack staff, because this teacher will teach you the whole 9 weeks and since there are a lot of other campus in the world, you can choose this one with the best teacher, to get the best results.

    Nonetheless I have to say that the ironhack staff supports you in almost every thing when you have any trouble related to this bootcamp, they try immediatly to change things to create such an enviroment that you are able to focus again on your work to 100%. I never had this before in a previous job nor university.

    So great job! thx!

    Excellent course and methodology.  They make you go deep into the design approaches in order for you to create your own portfolio and learn by doing.

    The truth is, as an attendee in Ironhack, I was beyond surprised with how the bootcamp developed. I learned the tools ready for the job market and I feel more than confident with my skills to learn, implement, and practice any project that a company or business requires. The staff in Ironhack Mexico was beyond excellent, I was surprised with the continued support that everyone in the staff provided. I do recommend to anyone that wants to attend this camp has some previous learning in order to get a better experience. Do the prework that they require but also go beyond and try to learn more programming. If you expect going into the bootcamp without having any interest in programming you may discover that programming is not for you, but this won't be the bootcamps fault rather than yours. Ironhack offers great tools for the job market, a great career work support, and an amazing staff that will become your family. In truth, they do their best to prepare you but most of it falls on you.

    When I first started my web development bootcamp, I was kinda scared about the enormous amount of information that we would be learning during the following 9 weeks.  I seemed huge...extremely difficult! However, as we started our classes and got to know our teachers, I realized that I didn't need to worry. We had the best teachers who had the best attitude towars us. We learnt more than what I thought was possible. And we also became a part of Ironhack's family. This is a great option for someone who wants to become an excellent developer and who want to face new challenges.

    Overall is a good course, however, you should get TA's with a stronger background in the subjects you're about to teach. 

    Also, for Windows users, you should have a previous session with them so they're all set up with the tools they'll be needing during the course's development.

    My experience was quite different.

    The cohort in Berlin seems quite unorganised and lacks basic communication. For the amount of money one has to spent in order to attend this bootcamp you might expect a more professional and polite environment.

    I also experienced discrimination due to my gender and ethnic background. I do not recommend this bootcamp.

    Pues sí, repetiría, con todo lo que ello implica. Durante 9 semanas mi vida personal se esfumó prácticamente por completo (vivía con el miedo de que mi hija un día no me reconociera xD) pero realmente vale la pena. El bootcamp es intenso y hay que trabajar muy duro, pero con la ayuda de mis compañeros (pasamos muchas horas juntos y eso, quieras que no, hace equipo) y el soporte de todo el staff, te sientes como en casa y apoyado en todo momento. Ya no es solo lo que aprendes a nivel técnico, a nivel personal también es una experiencia súper enriquecedora.

    I researched other coding boot-camps in the area and from reading the reviews, I gathered this would be the best choice. I also asked my friends who are computer programmers and they all agreed that this curriculum was the most up to date and the most thorough. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to keep up or that it would cover an obscure topic, but none of that was true. You do need to have some basic understanding of programming before you start. But they give you the opportunity to learn that before starting the course with the Pre-work they assigned. The curriculum is very well designed, as long as you put in the time to learn, you will do very well. I can’t believe how much we learned in 2 months. It also helped that everyone taking the course was highly motivated and we all helped each other and kept each other accountable. Overall, it was a great experience.

    It was an awesome experience who I recommend to anyone thinking to change his career like me.

    Beyond learning, the atmosphere between staff and all the students was the best.

    I would definitely repeat!

    I am a student who did the Web Dev Bootcamp in part-time in Paris.

    I was a total beginner in the conding world.

    Let me explain what was my experience at Ironhack ;)

    As you may know, the course last 6 months and is separated in 3 parts. At the end of every part, you have 1 month to make a project that you choose. Every week, you also practice A LOT by doing the exercises, which are really helpful to understand the common mistakes.

    The first part is for HTML, CSS, and Javascript, which are the basics for front-end development. For me, this was the hardest part, because raw Javascript may have a logic that could be hard to understand at the beginning. But as you go forward you learn a lot, and the teachers are very dedicated to help you. At the end of this part 1, you have to develop a game; which is a very cool way to practice and learn as you code.

    The second part is the back-end part, learning NodeJs and Express. You just have to learn the logic and copy/paste what is in the Ironhack course and in the documentation to make everything work. You will learn how to manage a database and use APis (Google Maps' API, Spotifiy' API, etc).

    The last part, my favorite one, is to merge front-end and back-end, using NodeJs and REACT, which is a very cool language. Inititally the plan was to learn AngularJs, but the teacher decided to make us learn React, which is most demanded and very useful for what we will have to do. At the end of module 3, we had 1 month to develop and pitch our product. The final project usually match a professional project you have, and the teacher are really devoted to help you success.
     

    To conclude all of this, I really enjoyed my experience at Ironhack, with a super team, super teachers and lot of great people met. I particularly enjoyed :

    - the ambiance

    - the dedication of the team to help you succeed

    - the flexibility and kindness of the teachers

    - the courses offered, with all the exercises you have to practice.

    Amazing experience and School, THANKS a lot !

    ¿Expectativas?... Si, soy consciente de que las expectativas en parte las se las crea uno mismo y lo he tenido muy en cuenta a la hora de redactar esto. 
    En el caso de IronkHack, la promesa de marca es fuerte. Transmiten una imagen poderosa y solvente, bien gestionada. Una imagen ganadora. 
    Diría que la realidad llega sólo al 70% de lo que cabe esperar a la vista de su marketing.
    A lo concreto: el curso en el que he participado estaba al 100% de su capacidad en asistentes. No cabía ni uno más. 24 alumnos en total. Han doblado lo asistentes respecto a las convocatorias inmediatamente anterior y posterior. Pero no han doblado los recursos. Eso es un hecho. El sistema de TA (profesores asistentes) no profesionales, a mi juicio, no funciona. Si bien el profesor principal presenta la experiencia y cualidades adecuadas, las TA's eran inexpertas y su criterio fácilmente cuestionable. El feedback, algo imprescindible para los alumnos sobre la marcha y resultado de sus proyectos, ha sido insuficiente, en algunos casos inadecuado (hay que dar argumentos, ser riguroso, razonar la posturas, por favor... Esto eso que tratáis de enseñarnos a nosotros los alumnos) y hacia el final del curso, cuando más lo necesitábamos, raquítico. A veces teníamos que andar "a la caza" del profesor. Decisiones como la elección del tema para nuestro proyecto final han estado totalmente condicionadas por las TA's, que en mi opinión no han estado a la altura y no han dado el asesoramiento adecuado.
    Globalmente les doy un 6,5. La relación calidad-precio: caro.

     I started the course coming from a completely different background... so had lots to learn.

    The course was extremely intensive and effective. It’s impressive what you learn in such a short space of time! In just 8 weeks you get a good basis in all aspects of UX and UI design, all the way from validating ideas through user research to designing high fidelity prototypes in sketch and flinto. The teachers are passionate and knowledgeable.

    On top of that, Sonia is great at helping you secure a job after finishing the course. She has a lot of great contacts and gets you over the first hurdle of securing interviews. I finished the course just before xmas and was already working midway through January as a UX designer in Barcelona.

    I would definitely recommend the course, but do it with an open mind and with realistic expectations. You won’t know everything there is to know about UX/UI design after 8 weeks... but you will have learned a solid foundation that will leave you well equipped to carry on learning in your first role.

    I had a fantastic time at Ironhack and learned so much. 

    Nizar is one of the two best teachers I've ever had and I have been in school for way too long.The effort he puts in is admirable and motivating.

    Kevin and Gus were very kind, helpful and ego-boosting TAs and I appreciate them immensely.

    The Ironhack staff is amazing, Alia and Marisa, you two are integral to the success of one of the best bootcamps worldwide.

    Brito is a really awesome guy, he truly cares and he will do his best for you. And he has some quotes that you will remember your whole life.

    I was hired as a developer after the course and this would not have been possible without Ironhack. 

    A fair word of warning however: you must dedicate yourself entirely and you must love programming. You will have to go above and beyond what is taught in class to be competitive in the job market. And once you have finished these two months, you will realize how much there is left to learn; it never ends, so be prepared and make sure this is your passion.

    Thank you to all of Ironhack!!!

    Pros - The instructors were very knowledgable with great credentials. They also had a lot of networking opportunities, but most of the attendees were not interested in students and were looking for more experienced developers. Classroom and campus was very nice and Barcelona is beautiful. 

    Cons - When I applied, I was told the graduates had a 96% employment rate after graduation. When I arrived, the figure changed to 80% (understandable). However, my class, most of those with little to no knowledge of programming in my course still do not have a job or offers months later. Also, the class size was two times as advertised, we had over 30 people in our class, and it was nearly impossible to get help from the TAs. Also, the "career week" was only a single day and was not held immediately after the course, it was over two weeks after the course had ended, which meant many of us could not attend due to travel/visa issues. The coursework was shoddy and disorganized, we had lessons in week three for material we were expected to know on day one. They claim to take you from 0% to 80%, I would say I went from 20% to 50%. I am still unemployed and cannot find a job.

    Personally, I had a great experience at Ironhack. The staff was always very kind and helpful. They provide a huge amount of high quality resources and guidance. I tried teaching my self programming over the Internet but honestly, there are so many tutorials and courses that take so many different approaches that it's really difficult to figure out which way is best. I think the instruction at Ironhack with their experienced devs was invaluable. Like anything in life, what you put in determines what you get out. Ironhack and bootcamps in general are no different. Ironhack prepared me to take the first step toward becoming a true developer. However, I think all prospective bootcamp students should understand that programming is really a skill that takes years upon years to master. Bootcamps will give you a foundation and prove to potential employers that you can learn the neccesary skills, but don't expect to come out of a bootcamp as a beast programmer. That will take time. If you are ready to put that time in and truly want to become a developer I think bootcamps are an essential first step! Ironhack taught many practical and useful skills that I was able to apply day 1 of my first job. I now have some friends who attended other bootcamps in the Miami area and in speaking with them about their experiemces, I have no doubt in my mind that Ironhack is the best bootcamp in South Florida bar none!

Thanks!
