In addition to technical skills, the course will train students in how to think like a programmer. Students will learn how to deconstruct complex problems and break them into smaller modules. However, the most important skill that students will take away from this course is the ability to learn. Technology is fast-moving and ever-changing. A good programmer has a general understanding of the various programming languages and when to use them. A great programmer understands the fundamental structure and possesses the ability to learn any new language when required.

    I ended up choosing Data Analytics because I wanted to supplement my work experience and have something that would help me standout to recruiters. Its been 4 months since my cohort graduated and I have since found a job. Besides helping me achieve my professional goals and adding new skills to my toolkit, the experience was also fun and i'll definitely look back fondly to the long hours spent with my cohort. The full time programs are all very demanding of your time and energy. If you're a complete newcomer to coding, I suggest dedicating as much time as possible to the pre-work. Also, brushing up on statistics is a good idea for data analytics. The only caveat I have about the full time program is that it passes very quickly. Before you know it you will be working on your final project. I remember thinking an extra few weeks would have been nice, I think a sweet spot would be about 12 weeks. Either way, if I could i'd do the whole thing over again.

    Last year, around this time I felt like I was stuck in a dead-end career in the Social Work field and felt that my future career-wise was bleak. I applied to FIU to start their MBA program last January to give myself more options, and in the process of looking for immediate ways to change my career, I found their Bootcamp through FIU's alumni website. Getting admitted into IronHack for me was a Godsend. It's easily one of the best decisions, I've made in life. Their full-time Data Analytics course taught me so much, from learning general End-to-End Analysis to getting a grip on an amazing language such as Python. My career possibilities changed tremendously. Our instructor Himanshu was absolutely amazing, patient in the lessons and always made time to give us individual attention to keep up. Our TA Tom was always happy to help when we'd hit those frustrating walls. Outside of our class, the IronHack staff, in general, was amazing, from Jessica to Nicole, and even the teachers from the other cohorts, making sure we were comfortable in our learning environment. The best part of it all was the relationship I developed with Brito, our Talent Manager. God is working through this man to completely change lives. He is as we say the G.O.A.T. He's helped countless students including through our Hiring process, and keeping his counsel got me to where I'm at today. Now starting my new career, I am eternally grateful to this program, Himanshu and Brito for changing my life.

    I applied to the Miami UX/UI Bootcamp because I wanted a career as a ux/ui designer. I had a degree in Psychology and several years of design experience. I wanted a career that merged both and discovered ux. A masters was too expensive in both time and money, and to get a ux job with no portfolio or direct experience seemed daunting.

    The most beneficial part of Ironhack in my mind was the career services portion. Daniel Brito and career week prepared me in terms of portfolio, linked in, resume, and interview skills. Without his help I would not have the job that I do.

    I found all the staff to be encouraging and helpful. I learned a lot about ux process and methodology but most importantly classes gave me a structure with which I was able to make my portfolio shine. 

    I think that if I did not have previous experience with some of the design tools, Ironhack would have been significantly more difficult.

    This is not something to do unless you are motivated to work hard and to get a job out of this. I’m so thankful for everyone at Ironhack and for the job that I have because of them. I love user experience and I could not imagine doing anything else with my life.

    I am grateful for having the opportunity to complete the data analytics program at Ironhack. The staff is encouraging and they provide you with continuous support. They're extremely passionate about education and want to see their students succeed. Their curriculum is comprehensive and very challenging, but the instructors and TAs are excellent, and do a great job at providing students with personalized feedback and covering each concept in a way that's approachable for every student regardless of their technical background. I felt like I've learned more in 9 weeks than I could have on my own in one year through self study. The culture and environment was perfect, and provided many opportunities for collaborating with and learning from other students. It was life-changing, and an overall incredible experience.

    Going to Ironhack was an extremely positive experience in my life. It helped me turn the page and enter the next chapter of my life successfully. The Full Stack Web Developer course helped me develop confidence in my ability as a developer. I spent time prior to this experience self-learning but found myself trapped in tutorial hell. By going to Ironhack, I was wrapped up in an environment that promoted more of a Nike philosophy to programming while lifting us up when imposter syndrome came knocking. Niko, one of the teachers, did a phenomenal job supporting me throughout times where my loft ideas seemed unattainable and helped guide me in making them possible.

    The team at Ironhack are all extremely approachable and effortlessly make you feel like family. I could not be more pleased with the time that I have spent and will spend with them going forward. Without this experience, I don’t think that I would have the courage to call myself a developer. Thanks to all of the preparation, tough but fair feedback, and insights into what really matters, Brito cleared a path forward for us to make success possible. 

    Ultimately, if I did not make the leap of faith and take the full-time Full Stack Web Developer program at Ironhack, I would not be able to call myself a professional Frontend Developer today.

    I attended Ironhacks web dev bootcamp in hopes of getting away from my dead end job. Taking the step towards this by starting the 9 week bootcamp was extremely intimidating at first; feeling like I couldn't do something like this. With the help and guidance from the instructors and my classmates I grew in confidence day after day. Today I've successfully found a full time position with a software company putting my skills I learned from the bootcamp to work. When I think of myself and what I was doing a year prior it's hard to believe I've come this far. Much of it wouldn't have been possible I feel without the amazing and supportive staff at IronHack. This has been one of the biggest impacts in my life; thank you for everything!

    Currently, I work as a QA Engineer, and working so close with the developers inspired and motivated me to pick up the necessary skills and foundations to break into the web development field. So, I  joined Ironhack’s part-time web development course to develop the necessary skills, which is the best decision I could have ever made.  This course was a great opportunity to collaborate with people with an interest in technology, which allowed us to grow together and learn from each other. Additionally, all of the teachers and TAs are very responsive and receptive to questions. The project based curriculum allows you to learn for the sake of learning.

    I am a Civil Engineer working in construction  in Florida for the last 15 years.  I was looking for a change of career and a friend of mine sent me a link to the Ironhack bootcamp in Miami, and I registerd without a doubt.  It was a great experience, the onboarding process is really friendly, the teachers are knowledgeable and very friendly, factoring in also teacher assistants that are equally savy,  and content is structured to get  you job hunting ready. Although Ironhack staff is very willing to help you get a Job through the Job Fair they organize for every cohort, I decided to give freelancing a shot, and after I got graduated on November I started to look for projects.  One month later, in late December, I got my first client and now in January I am getting the second one.  Working by myself has been my goal and Ironhack prepared me for both routes: employement and freelancing.  Totally recommend this experience to anybody who wants to learn code and get ready in relatively short time for the work environment.

    Its a good place to start dipping your toes into the UX-UI / Tech industry. They try to be as organized as possible, which I really like. People that work there are very nice and willing you help you grow and help. About the curriculum, it's good, again from theory to the actual world, there's a gap (like any other school experience) but because I came from a design background I don't feel that I learned as much new stuff. For me it was more of landing that background into the tech industry rather that acquiring a bunch new knowledge. If you have previous design experience, it's limited what you are going to learn. If you don't have any experience related, then definitely you'll learn a lot.

    I joined Ironhack as a Computer Science student at the University of Miami, intending to expand my knowledge in developing web apps but left with much more. The teachers and TAs truly made an effort every day for each and every one of us to succeed. Through paired programming and other projects, I was able to grow teamwork skills that are necessary in today's workplace. Every member of the Ironhack team made me feel at home for those three months and I tell all my friends that are looking for new opportunities to consider joining Ironhack.

    I decided to do the Ironhack full time UX/UI course soon after leaving my marketing job. I wanted to switch careers the fast way, and was willing to go all in for 3 months. Midway, I started second guessing my decision to go to college... because I felt that I was absorbing information much better than I ever had in school. I fully recommend the course to go-getters that are ready to make a career change and have a good eye for design or an affinity for research. The network you create in this course (by going to school and making friends AND getting involved in the local community) is amazing. Loved the course, the staff, and the friends I got out of it!

    Ironhack's Web Development bootcamp was the best learning experience I've ever had. The bootcamp is intensive, very fast paced, but the curriculum is really good and everything is well structured. You learn the theory and then immediately get to put it in practice with several exercises, and if you struggle you can always ask the teacher assistants, who are always there to help. You can also ask your classmates, because another thing that makes this bootcamp so good is the sense of camaraderie that comes from sharing such an intense experience with other people.

    Be ready to work HARD and prepare yourself the best you can before starting - the pre-work is super important, take your time with it! While it is aimed at beginners, the curriculum is vast and tough, so the more familiar you are with the subjects, the better you'll do.

    At the end of the bootcamp there's a very helpful Career Week, where you get a lot of tips on how to prepare for personal and technical interviews, how to make a good CV, a good cover letter, etc. You then get to meet some companies at the Hiring Fair, which not only makes for great practice but can also lead to real opportunities.

    All in all I learned a lot (really, a LOT), made great friends, and would repeat the experience in a heartbeat!

    My experience at Ironhack is easily one of the top best decisions I've ever made in my life.

     

    Before Ironhack, I was a Chemical Engineer in Texas. My schedule consisted of leaving my family behind for several weeks at a time while offshore with an 80% chance of mortality. I decided to take a HUGE leap of faith after a year of failed attempts at teaching myself how to code and joined Ironhack's full-time web development program. Ironhack provided me real-world in-demand skills necessary to reach my goal of becoming a Software Engineer. "Thanks, Brito and Alia!!".

     

    The most important skills gained at Ironhack, in my opinion, which has complimented me well in my personal and professional life is Agile Development (Stand-ups, grooming, Demo, planning), TDD (Test-Driven Development), and Interdependence (Group projects, hackathons, Meetups). Like most things, you will get out of it what you put into it.

     

    Ironhack allowed me to switch careers, which is unheard of if you have a family established or done with college. I was able to land a great job as a Software Engineer at one of the top E-commerce companies in the US.

     

    If you like programming already or have been diving headfirst into all of the online material, then Ironhack is going to provide an environment and support network that will help you to thrive and reach your goals. Trust the process, and you are more than welcome to reach out for any questions or support.

    Very intensive learning course where you can expect a lot of knowledge to be gained.

    This is basically a military service for those who never coded anything before, it will be expected the best from every student, and the end result is just great.

    Altough i was very frustrated during the whole course due to new subjects being learned everyday, and the teachers help was very little, i think that for the time we had, you cannot expect anything better.

    It is a great learning and socializing experience, where you can expect to make new friends and good teammates. The environment is very chill, and we try not to stress ourselves too much. There was a good companionship feeling troughout all the bootcamp between classmates and it made me stress less as well as giving me motivation to not give up.

    I think in general the only thing that could be better would be having at least two more Teaching Assistants, due to the fact that we are to many with too many doubts and sometimes i would have to wait for at least half an hour so i could ask for any help at all. That would cause me to stress in many tough situations and it made my frustration levels go up by a lot.

    It was a very good overall experience

    We produced three projects during the 9 weeks, and learning React was a huge positive because I can see how wanted it is in the job market currently. 
    Ironhack has a real 'family' feel to it. All the staff are there to help you and one of the most impressive things I think was the hiring fair.  This is something no other bootcamp does (i believe!). We were introduced to many partners and there was a whole week dedicated to interview prep including technical interview help, which will be so helpful for the future. 
    I learned so much in the space of such a short amount of time. Sometimes, the challenge of the course was overwhelming because it was 9 weeks of intense learning. There were aspects which I found harder, but this is normal and the project weeks really helped to consolidate all the knowledge.
    I think if you're prepared to put in the time and effort, you will learn more in this bootcamp than you will with any other resource. 
    It was a great opportunity and I strongly believe that if you are to go to any bootcamp, you should choose Ironhack Lisbon!

    I was completely stuck with a career I didn't like and I was looking not only for a new job but for a new life.
    Ironhack was one of the best experience in my life and not only gave me all the tools an amazing UX/UI designer should have, but also ensured me with a community of talented people that will be with me forever: your experience with them doesn't finish after the 9 intensive weeks indeed.
    The Ironhack community will always be with you and trust me it's amazing feeling supported, especially when you are doing a huge career change as I have done.
    At the end of the course you are a UX/UI Designer and I was able to start a new career straight away.
    Right now I am writing this review from my laptop and I have a call with my client in 30 mins to discuss the latest amendments on the app I am designing for them (I have decided to freelance and work remotely as much as I can).
    Ironhack was the best decision I ever made and I hugely recommend this experience to whoever wants to boost or change his career.

    (Also big thank you to the amazing Ironhack team Lisbon who is the best I could have asked for :)

    Before Ironhack I was working at a job where I wasn't happy, and I felt like there was no where else for me to go. I felt trapped because of my lack of formal education. Ironhack completely changed my life. The skills I learned while at the bootcamp increased my value as an employee, and gave me the jumpstart I needed to break into the software development field. I had been doing some learning at home before Ironhack, but having someone to teach me and answer my questions made a huge difference. It was also helpful to have the opportunity to work with other students. It showed me how to collaborate on projects, which was a very valuable skill I was not learning at home. After the bootcamp there was a Career Services week which involved interview prep by the career coach at Ironhack as well as a Senior Software Engineer that he brought in. It all ended with a career fair where was able to meet with representatives from 7 different companies who were looking to hire junior developers. It was there that I had the opportunity to speak with a developer and HR manager from a great company that eventually ended up giving me a job offer. Ironhack was everything I expected it to be based off of the research I had done, and I am happy I made the decision to take a chance and leave it all behind in pursuit of a career that would make me happy. I recommend it to anyone who is passionate about technology and wants to make a career change.

The course material is challenging, but the teaching and management staff are always ready to help you get through it.

    I had a bachelor's degree in psychology and was a psychosocial rehabilitation counselor for 3 years before deciding to pursue a career change. I had extremely limited knowledge of coding and felt like Ironhack was going to be a huge risk if it didn't pay off. What I learned after only a few days into the cohort was: 1. most of my peers in my cohort were on the same boat and felt the same way and 2. there are an abundance of extremely enthusiastic and helpful individuals ready to guide you along the way. Although there were times that imposter syndrome was rampant for me (okay maybe a lot of the time, personally), times that I was overwhelmed and hitting a wall, times I felt that I made a huge mistake, I always felt I had the support I needed to break through those walls eventually. 

    Make no mistake, this bootcamp is not easy (coming from a person with little previous coding experience). Ironhack will not guarantee you a job. But what I can personally guarantee you is that you will reap what you sow. Be ready to humble yourself, bust your ass, be willing to ask for help when you're stuck, come in early, stay late, get some extra learning done on the weekends, yada yada yada. If you can honestly tell yourself you're doing everything you can to learn as much as you can, you are going to succeed. It's important to know this bootcamp is just the beginning of a lifelong journey of learning, do NOT expect to leave her knowing everything you will need to be a master developer. IF YOU PUT IN THE WORK, it WILL give you a great base to build from, a portfolio to show off to potential employers, a fantastic team of people who will be in your corner to help you succeed (even well after the cohort), and a group of friends that become almost like family.

    This review comes 5 months after I graduated because I really wanted to let time soak up my emotions and give an authentic review rather than one based off the highs of graduating.  So with that being said joining Ironhack for their Full Stack Web Development course has been the best educational investment of my life! Ironhack is education done right. What impressed me the most was the culture and all the positive energy that I got to experience. The staff was friendly and always there to help if I had a question. I loved that my cohort had a sense of commitment. It was competitive but we rooted for each other’s success. I really enjoyed the curriculum and learned a lot through the guided lessons. My instructor and TA’s were all extremely knowledgeable and patient. Although I was not looking for employment, one of my highlights was sitting in on Brito’s meetings. I learned a lot of technical skills through the web dev course but what I am most proud of is learning to work collaboratively with the UX/UI and Data analyst team. This was truly an amazing experience. Thank you Ironhack!

    I was looking for a change in my career. I wanted to work in more technical challenging field. But I didnot want to spend my 3-4 years again in a university. So the best option for me was to join Ironhack which would prepare me for a web dev career in a short duration. 
    After I graduated, I couldnot believe myself that I have graduated as a web developer now(junior though :D) until the day when I finally got a job offer as a Front end developer. Within this short duration, I learnt more than what I could have learned in 1 year, if I had learnt by myself. 
    And I also appreciate the personalized career services after the bootcamp with constant followups about the job hunt
    Thanks Ironhack team 
     

Thanks!
