    Went into Ironhack with almost zero coding experience, and left feeling confident in my abilities to bring value to my next employer. Instructors, expecially the TA's CARED for each student's growth and success during the program, and Daniel Brito, The Placements Manager provides thorough, yet simple to implement instructions on how to get a job after, and brings energy and passion to his work. 

    Not a perfect bootcamp, but from my point of view, pretty damn close. Thank you Ironhack, it was real.

    You will meet a lot of people with the different way of thinking and point of view, and that is Ironhack too, is like an small family, you will spend 12 hours per day the next 9 weeks, so maybe you will laugh or get angry about the code… 
    They have the best teachers, not only good in teaching, also good people.
    Maybe If I would known before about Ironhack…
    Well the good point is, that right now Im feeling like Im in the top of wave in my job carrer.

    Hey you, most probably you are in the situation I was half a year ago. You are maybe asking yourself if a bootcamp is the right thing for you. Six month ago, I was as indecisive as you right now. I tried out some online resources of really basic programming languages and noticed I really like it, however I was not sure if it is enough to put all on one card and pursue a career change.

    Now after the bootcamp has ended, I can tell you that it was totally worth it. If you are a person that feels uncomfortable with the comfortable and aspire a career where you feel that your effort work is really meaningful than just go for it. In the review I try to stress out why Ironhack is the right choice for you. Enjoy the read : )

     

    TEACHERS & CURRICULUM

    I couldn’t think of better teachers than the ones from Ironhack. Learning from Andre, our main teacher, was an incredibly valuable experience. He is not at all comparable to any other teacher I met in the course of my academic journey. He is inspiring, incredibly skilled and knowledgeable in all realms of the industry. The same applies to the great technical assistants. Everyone is really eager to help you and motivate you throughout the course.

    I don’t want to sugarcoat anything, the curriculum is intense and your personal outcome also depends a lot on yourself and how much effort you put in. Be consistent and don’t stress out when you don’t get a concept right a way. You will get there with sufficient practice. As Andre taught us, they give us the shoes; we are the ones to put them on. Apart from the curriculum, you will have the chance to educate yourself in related fields. Almost everyday there are events, lectures and workshops that you can attend.

     

    BARCELONA OPEN SPACE

    When it comes to the right location for you to attend a bootcamp, Barcelona is definitely the place to be; the city is vibrant, young and is known for its growing tech scene. I recommend you to make use of all the great facilities that the Ironhack office provides. You’ll have the possibility to be at Ironhack 24/7. The open space with all its facilities offers you the perfect place to unfold your potential and really immerse into the world of programming. There is also a flat upstairs with a nice rooftop to study and have a barbecue with your IH friends to unwind after hours of learning and coding. The staff really trusts you guys and gives you all the freedom you need to feel as comfortable as possible. They are all really attentive to your needs and are very perceptive to any feedback. In general, the staff is always friendly and always approachable with whatever question you have.

     

    JOB PERSPECTIVES

    Regarding job perspectives, it is a bit too soon to be opinionated since it’s two days since the bootcamp is over. However, if it helps you to get an idea, everyone from the previous cohort landed a developer job before our cohort ended. The placement manager as well as the rest of the team are really supportive and provide help with your portfolio. Also, the hiring week at the end of the bootcamp will help you to get in touch with different tech companies in Barcelona.

     

    PREPARATION

    I’d like to make a short remark for those of you who have no prior knowledge. Although the program does not require any prior preparation besides the pre-work, I strongly recommend you to prepare yourself upfront using free online resources with main focus on JavaScript. It will keep your frustration level lower in case you are starting from scratch. However, don’t feel intimidated by this, it is not required and you can go along without any pre-knowledge.

     

    IRONHACK FAM

    Last but not least, I would like to address a very special thing about the program. When applying for Ironhack, I mainly focused on the learning experience itself and haven’t thought so much about the positive factors that this course brings along. But believe me, it’s the piiiiipool that make this experience so unforgettable! Although you might think that 2 1/2 months are a pretty short time to build close relationships, the bootcamp will prove you wrong!! You will have an amazing time with amazing likeminded people and will grow close together as a group. The group dynamics were unbelievable. We did a lot of different activities where everybody was included from day 1. We had legendary Friday nights, did rooftop BBQs, ping pong tournaments, samba nights, skiing trips and so much more). The Ironhack quarter really becomes your first home, the people your family and coding the nexus between both!

     

    If you are really thinking of pursuing a career change, don’t hesitate anymore and join the Ironhack fam. Ironhack nails it, so will you! : )

    I took the first part-time UX course offered by the Miami campus. The course started in August 2017 and ended in March 2018.

    Here's what you need to know before you start:

    1. There is pre-work, and lots of it. You will need to do this before you go to the first class - if you don't do it, I will find you and I will haunt you personally.

    2. You will need to find some kind of transportation that gets you to Ironhack or you will need to pay for parking. If you're bougie like me, there's a garage behind Ironhack and they do offer monthly parking, but their daily rate is $10. If you time it just right, your weekday classes will cost $6 to park there and the Saturday class will be $10. You can also find street parking around the area but pay attention to the signs!

    3. You will have homework during the class - expect to spend 10 hours a week on this, excluding your class project and your capstone - you will spend more time on those and you might have a couple late nights building presentations. If you don't do your homework, I will find you and I will haunt you personally.

    4. You'll want to make time for local events -- there are plenty for UX around the area and that is an excellent place to network.

    5. When you're in the class, pay attention!

    6. Your cohort will be full of people just like you. You might even become great friends with them - they are your network, and so are all of the Ironhack graduates. You'll find that this community is full of dedicated, hard working and caring individuals - we all want each other to be successful. 

    ---

    The instructors:
    We had Joel, Marcelo, Alex and Fernando teaching us. I hope that every cohort has these teachers or at least similar people - I cannot express how awesome they were. All of our teachers were excellent life/career coaches to us and all of them have been continuously supportive and available to us no matter what day/time it is. Joel taught us mostly about the overall process, Alex taught us about research, Marcelo taught us about visual design and sketch/flinto, and Fernando taught us HTML/CSS/Bootstrap. All of the instructors are local heroes in the industry and all will be able to teach you every tool you need to become a successful UX designer.

    ---

    The staff:

    The staff at Ironhack is amazing. You'll have a TA helping you through your exercise; lean on them for support! You'll also interact with the Ironhack staff at various events and they will come cheer you on in your presentations. I really love the staff at Ironhack because they are warm, caring, inviting and always available. Alia was my first introduction to Ironhack and she has been absolutely amazing. She helped me figure out that I would be a great fit for the UX program, and I am SO glad that she did.

    The staff really went out of their way to come after hours to support us, even though they'd already worked a full day. They also came on weekends occasionally and I always felt like they cared about our success.

    Brito will be available to you for career help and to walk you through how to find a job, how to interview, how to create a resume, etc. He is invaluable and extremely well connected. You have no idea how lucky you are :-)

    ---

    Overall:

    I had the most amazing experience and I know that I can walk into any interview with confidence and the tools I need to succeed.

    Everyone in my cohort really bonded; we are all group texting now and I know that each of us are rooting for each other's success. I will always be there to help my classmates and I know they'll be there for me, too!

    Honestly, a true testament to the fact that I like Ironhack and the teaching method so much: I decided to take the full-time front-end web development class, which graduates in June. This means I won't be joining my cohort's career fair, but I have no doubt my classmates will be successful and land their dream jobs :-)

    Given the feedback that I've received throughout this course, I have no doubts I'll be able to land the perfect job when I'm ready to start looking.

    Intentaré ser breve y conciso para los que quieran una review corta y sencilla:

    Ironhack es el mejor bootcamp tanto si lo que deseas es cambiar de ámbito profesional como afianzar y/o mejorar tus dotes de programación. Personalmente, es la mejor decisión que he tomado y estoy super orgulloso de haberlo hecho.

    Para los que quieran una review con mas información intentaré hacer hincapié en los puntos fuertes de este Bootcamp:

    1- El temario: No solamente te enseñan a "programar" desde 0 sino que te preparan para ser autosuficiente una vez acabado el bootcamp. Me explico:
     En Ironhack aprendes MEAN Stack (Mongo, Express,Stack Angular, Node) + HTML5 & CSS. Y esos conceptos aún con el poco tiempo con el que disponemos, arraigan en tu cerebro como si llevaras meses estudiándolos. Yo tenía un poco de Background en temas de CSS y HTML y en la primera semana ya estaba aprendiendo cosas nuevas que no sabía.
    Una vez acabado el Bootcamp puede estudiar cualquier tecnología de manera autosuficiente. Esa seguridad que te da el aprender cosas nuevas y saber que puedes hacerlo, no tiene precio.

    2- El equipo: Teacher & Ta's.
    - Decir impresionante, me quedaría corto, por lo que voy a decir únicamente que somos unos afortunados por tener a estos profesionales enseñándonos todos los días. André es una bestia en lo que a conceptos y manera de enseñar se refiere, personalmente es una persona muy cercana y se puede hablar con él de cualquier cosa. Sabe transmitir los conceptos de una manera sencilla y fácil de entender, y creedme, en este mundo no es nada fácil. Los TA's (teacher assistant) están ahí en cada momento en el que necesitamos ayuda y nos quedamos atascados en algún ejercicio y/o proyecto. 

    3. La familia Ironhack.
    - Desde el primer momento nos sentimos cómo en casa, nos dijeron que pasaríamos más horas ahí que en nuestra propia casa (no me lo creí al principio, pero... si, es cierto). Y es que al final, preferías quedarte aquí con tus amigos trabajando que irte a casa a hacerlo solo.

    El staff que está con nosotros es impresionante, desde el primer día te cuidan para que estés a gusto. Nunca han tenido una mala palabra, ni un gesto raro, ni una mirada especial. Estoy encantado de haberl@s conocido a tod@s, no sería lo mismo si no estuvieran aquí.

    Las instalaciones son perfectas para el tipo de "trabajo" que estamos desarrollando aquí. Si tuviera que hacer mi propio Ironhack lo haría de la misma forma que lo hacen ellos, cada centímetro está pensado a la perfección para que los que estamos estudiando aquí como los que trabajan estén a gusto.

    Finalmente y una de las cosas que me llevo y recordaré toda mi vida; los compañeros. Desde el principio congeniamos muy bien, la mayoría de nosotros estamos aquí para dar un cambio a nuestra vida laboral y en su efecto a nuestra vida en general. Tenemos muchas cosas en común y somos muy parecidos en la manera de ser (algunos más y otros menos) pero con el equilibrio que en todo sitio se necesita. Hacemos actividades conjuntas casi cada día (no es obligatorio!), desde Cervezas cada Viernes(y su fiesta posterior) hasta BBQ los fines de semana, Scape Rooms y visitas por la ciudad.

    Finalmente, si has llegado hasta aquí es porque lo estás pensando muy seriamente, no lo dudes. Únete a la familia Ironhack y no te arrepentirás, yo no lo he hecho :)

    Un saludo!

    Definitely, IronHack is a sky color palette of fellings and emotions. Each day you are going to live under a sky with differents colors. Some days the sky is going to be green, the color of hope, but when you think that everything is good the day turns red like hell. 

    IronHack is a roller coaster where you have to fight againts you, never give up! because when you thought that nothing could be worst under a dark sky, you can see in the horizon the sky turning blue, fresh and tranquilizer. 

    IronHack is a good oportunity to challenge your self and realize that imposible is nothing. At the end of this adventure you will be prepared to face every challenge in the life. They have goods professionals that will drive you in this exciting travel to get the best of you to arrive in mainland like a boat sailing through the storm under a grey sky.

    At the end of all you will see the rainbow on the sky and its will be the moment when you realize that everything makes sense!

    You can get some solid JS skills in only two months, from ES3 to ES6 and TypeScript. 
    I think you'll get the most if you are not absolutely new to development and coding environments. 
    However, some of my colleagues were totally newbies and they've finished the bootcamp very well.

    Do it if you want to get some solid JS, HTML and CSS skills, but be aware of the intensity. 
    In my edition we learnt HTML&CSS&jQuery // Node&Express&Mongo // Angular5+all the backend 
    The Ironhack team does not have magic tricks, you need to give your best from day 1.

    I´ve just completed the Web development bootcmap at Ironhack and I am very much satisfied with the knowledge I have aquired and with the experience overall. I came from a non-developping background (I´ve just graduated from Business and Law at IE University) so everything was new to me, from the tools used for coding, to the language itself. However, having mutliple Teacher Assistants and an excellent Head Teacher (Marc), alongside with cooperating for the completion of the daily exercises with the rest of students has made me learn the tools for building not only a simple website (which is pretty much what I was expecting from the course) but a proffessional platform. Managing databases, structuring projects, creating models, developping actions, building routes, designing the look of the platform and deploying the website once its done are a few of the core aspects of developping a website and at Ironhack they tackle each and every one of them in detail. Even though I am not planing on becoming a developer, I believe that these tools will be very useful for me in the future, specially if I end up working in the tech-industry.

    I just completed the first Part-Time UX/UI Course at IronHack Miami. Now that it's over, I am confident that I have been given all of the tools I need to become a successful UX/UI Designer. 

    Regarding the course: the material is extensive, the pacing of curriculum is fast, and expectations are high. This has been the most intense educational venture for me (even more than my college degree). After everything, I couldn't be happier.

    The most important part:

    After everything I have done to get to this point, I can readliy tell you that IronHack is worth every single penny. These are just a few (of many reasons) why:

    • The instructors and staff are genuinely invested in your success
    • The curriculum evolves often to stay current with technology
    • IronHack is a hub for many activities in the growing Miami ecosystem
    • The alumni are extremely active, friendly, and easy to network with
    • They care so much and really make the effort to connect you with job opportunities (thanks, Brito!)

    Things to Consider

    • When you are enrolled part-time, the workload is a lot more challenging to navigate. This is because you are required to attend 2 weeknights from 6:30pm-9:30pm, and all day Saturdays (that's not including study and project time). Consider what it might be like for you to balance IronHack with a full time job. 
    • Apply as early as you can, as mandatory prework is assigned for you to complete before the start of the course. It helps get you familiar with the material and be prepared before your first day. I completed mine over the course of a month (a few hours here and there), totalling about 40 hours to finish. 
    • There are expenses that you will incur that are not included in your tuition:
      • Be prepared to pay for parking, as the school is located in Brickell. Parking is located on the street (estimated $2/hour) or in a nearby garage (flat fee $10/day)
      • Also be prepared to have about $300 extra saved to download the software you need or for miscellaneous items (Sketch, Flinto, and I am forgetting the others at the moment) 
      • $50 for a FOB, which is a key for 24 hour access. It gets reimbursed to you once you are done with the course. 

    I think that covers it!
