    This course enables students to design and build full stack JavaScript web applications. Students will learn the fundamentals of programming, with a big emphasis on battle-tested patterns and best practices. By the end of the course, students will have the ability to evaluate a problem and select the optimal solution using the language/framework best suited for a project’s scope. 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.

    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.

    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!

    I attended de full time Web Development Bootcamp in Ironhack Barcelona. During 8 weeks I learned to develop a full working web app from scratch, using Ruby on Rails, Javascript, HTML5 and CSS3 technologies. 

    Every week during these period, we had a different lead teacher coming from the industry to teach us how companies use these technologies and how we should focus to use them. We learned version control git, basics of TDD and unit testing, responsive design, Bootstrap, and more.

    The place is very friendly and you will feel comfortable since the first day. You have all the basics to stay there all there. During the afternoon, everyday, there are some exercises proposed, as well as pair programming. Here you can try to develop everything you learned in the morning.

    Finally, the last 2 weeks of the course, you will have to focus on your final project. You will have to decide to make a web app and try to develop it fully on your own. TAs are there everyday to help you with any doubt you've got. All projects are rated by professional developers, and the best five are presented during a well known event in Barcelona. 

    But hey! Here's the best part: the hiring week. One of the attractive points of these course is to find a job later. Guess what? During the hiring week, the Ironhack staff helps you contact with companies and talk with people to get hired. Yeah, I was quite skeptical at first, but nowaday's I've got a job, so I am fully satisfied.

    So, you just need to stay positive and work hard during these 8 weeks, and finding a job in Barcelona is almost 100% guarenteed.

    I recently finished the web development part-time course.

    I found out about Ironhack through the scholarship that uber was granting and i was lucky enough to get a partial one, and just be able to do the course was a great opportunity.

    If you're thinking about whether or not you should do the course, think no more, do it. You'll learn tons of direct applicable knowledge in such a short amount of time that you'll be amazed. When you're done you'll be able to build any web app you can think of, just don't miss class and put as much effort and time as you can on this. It's worth it!

    It’s difficult to describe what I’ve lived in the last weeks, perhaps the word is UNIQUE and IRREPLACEABLE.

    A few weeks ago I decided to do the web development bootcamp at Ironhack, I had no prior experience in programming as I worked in admin and logistics. Having finished the course, I know programming is what I want to do and I want to keep learning about all types of technologies.

    ¿What did I do during these 9 weeks? Coding, coding, coding. It could sound boring but it was far from it. When you do something you like, you don’t mind putting in the hard work. Here you learn many technologies from day one, and even though it’s very difficult d and very intense, the result is worth it: my colleagues because friends, the staff is always there to help you even outside their working hours and, most of all, I know have the tools to become a junior programmer.

    By far one of the most richful experiences I've had. 

    I didn't know what to expect , everything seemed too "perfect". But now, a month after graduating, I can say without a doubt that enrolling has been the best decision I've made in a long time.

    I didn't have any kind of previous experience, and already before graduating, I had an offer. 

    Of course there were ups and downs, but I would do it again and again. You don't only come out with the knowledge, but friends for life. 

    A million thanks to everyone at Ironhack! 

Thanks!
