    I decided to join Ironhack web development bootcamp for several reasons and I didn't regret my choice and was even more satisfied than what I expected.

    I had 2 objectives: I wanted to learn how to code so as to start my own business, I wanted to connect to the tech environment.

    Both objectives were reached and even more I hadn't expected!

    Here are the main advantages of this program to me:

    • We learnt the latest technologies and at the end of the bootcamp were able to develop our own webapp and received all the elements to be able to go on learning more languages and 
    • The program is not only about getting the material read and going through the exercices one by one: the team is super involved in fine-tuning it to the rythm of the students and is flexible to make sure everyone keeps on board. There are several teacher assistants and we can easily ask for help.
    • There are many add-ons to the coding training that are super valuable: weekly meeting with people from the tech environment (entrepreneurs, developpers, recruiters...), activities during the bootcamp...
    • The team is great and is dedicated to make the experience unique and the atmosphere is very friendly and nice.

    The program is quite expensive but I think it worth the investment. It's not easy, but you never get great results from easy experiences.

    Realicé el Grado en Economía en la Universidad Autónoma de Bellaterra (UAB) mientras trabajaba como administrativo en una empresa de logística, después de tres años trabajando allí, me despidieron y tras casi un año en paro me decidí por entrar en Ironhack, aconsejado por un amigo que trabaja en el mundo de la programación.
    Ha sido una de las mejores experiencias de formación que he tenido. Pasas por momentos de estrés, momentos en que piensas que no te quedas con nada, pero ver como a medida que va avanzando el curso y realmente te das cuenta de que te van saliendo las cosas y vas acordándote de todo lo que has ido haciendo es muy gratificante, en parte gracias tanto a los compañeros como a los profesores, que siempre están para ayudarte.
    Yo diría que lo más importante que he aprendido es aprender a aprender, este curso te enseña a programar y a saber cómo hacer aquello que todavía no sabes hacer. Lo mejor sin duda es ver el resultado final en el proyecto, ver que has logrado hacer algo que cuando empezaste el curso jamás habrías imaginado que podrías llegar a hacer, y por otro lado todo lo que hemos vivido todo el grupo de estudiantes del curso junto con los profesores y los trabajadores de Ironhack, sin duda una gran familia donde siempre ha habido muy buen rollo y con los que hemos sabido amenizar las dificultades del curso con comidas, Ironbeers, etc que han ayudado a desconectar lo justo del curso y poder seguir con más fuerza si cabe.
    Ahora mismo estoy buscando un nuevo trabajo, pero porqué hasta hace nada he estado trabajando en un proyecto que he terminado. Con este curso salimos preparados para encontrar cualquier trabajo en el sector, hasta los que no habíamos estudiado nada relacionado con el mundo de la programación antes, como es mi caso.

    I fell in love with coding when I studied at Ironhack at the end of 2015. It was an unexpected but wonderful process. The whole experience was an incredibly challenging but fulfilling adventure and at the end I was exhausted but grateful. I always say that it was like opening the door to a wonderful unknown world full of technological mysteries and magic. Yes, I wanted to be a magician, there was still a lot to learn but the door had been opened.

    After the bootcamp, I was lucky enough to be offered a variety of very interesting jobs, partially because of my previous experience as a designer but mainly because I COULD NOW CODE. Many people still have no idea how different the world can be when you can code. So off I went, worked in three different startups managing projects, changing processes and contributing in the creation of amazingly innovative digital products.

    Today, after a long period of self evaluation, I have been offered a job at one of the most creative consultancy firms I have ever heard of. I will be a developer at ThoughtWorks.

    Ironhack changed my life and I guess I am still in love.

    As with anything in life, you'll get back what you put in. IronHack proved to be just that. A bootcamp that provided a well-rounded curriulum that offers a peak into what the UX/UI world pertains without sugar coating the effort that it takes to become a part of it. Instructors come with solid resumes and years of true hands-on experience that helped guide students' personal missons and soldify their purpose for taking the journey in the first place. The staff cares deeply about the program and the success of their students. I for one took the course not to change my career, but to enhance my current skills. In the end, I definietly got what I needed out of it. If you're thinking about taking the course whether to switch careers or out of curiosity, I'd say do it. You won't regret.

    Even though I have a business background, I have always been interested and attracted to learn how to code. During my MSc in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, I realized how important is to have at least some basic knowledge on programming. For that reason, I decided to join Ironhack last summer for the two months’ intensive bootcamp.

    I am very happy with the decision I made. In two months, I was able to learn in a structured way all the basic concepts and gain a solid base that allows me right now to keep learning, on my own, based on my needs.

    In my opinion, all the theoretical knowledge is important, but the only way to improve is to practice, to make mistakes and to learn from those mistakes. The bootcamp format combines the theory (morning) with the practice (afternoon) very well. During the practice period, you have teacher assistants that can help you solve all the problems you may encounter.

    The coding community is growing at a fast past, there are a lot of events going on. Ironhack allows you to become a member of the community and gives you access to all the workshops and events for you to keep learning other practices and to meet interesting people working on the field that can help you with your personal projects.

    As for me, after the bootcamp, I decided to start programing my own software for the startup I am working for.

    Once upon a time...

     
    There was a man who felt the call of "The force". There were so much brute power inside him... and he knew so. He wanted to control that force to do something useful in the war between the Mordor army and the Funky Army. He started his travel to be teached by the greatest masters... 
     
    and someone heard his call: The Ironhack Order.
     
    He traveled to the capital in Neverland to know that wonderful people that everyone was talking in the Funky Army, and he did the test to become The Master Of The Universe and help the world to be brighter.
     
    First day came and Marc Snow(Lead teacher), leader of the Enterprise squad, told him: "I will give you Javascript, bro! Now you could control your inner force". With the help of Raul Spok (Assistant teacher) and Papu Sulu (Assistant teacher), the warriors were well trained.
     
    ...And the days past. Today i can say that I'm a Javascript Shaolin, and we have the best preparation to defeat the Orcs of ugly code.

    ​Com um background em Economia e Marketing, decidi experimentar um novo ramo: a programação! 

    Porque? Porque era mais um desafio como todos os os outros mas a minha experiencia no Ironhack foi incrivel. A forma como nos ensinam não tem nada aver com outro tipo de ensino. O foco principal é fazer com que te desenrrasques e que aprendas a fazer tudo de forma prática. Para não falar do ambiente: estive em contacto com todo o tipop de pessoas, desde ex-programadores de Cuba como estudantes Venezuelanos. Toda uma comunidade cosmopolita junta 24/7, que querem todos aprender a programar com a maior das motivações.

    Aprendi principalmente a aprender e para além disso trabalhar em grupo e sob pressão.
     
    O que mais me fascinou foi o facto de não existir qualquer tipo de hierarquia entre os professores e os alunos que facilitou a aprendizajem.

    My name is Alvaro, I'm 26 and I'm from Spain. I studied BSc in Business Management and MSc in International Trade, and before Ironhack I had worked as a tech & trade consultant for the Spanish Embassy. I also helped launch a beverage business in the US. Technology has always been my passion, and I decided if I wanted to work in the startup world, I had to become literate in the language that composes the products we create.
     
    My experience with Ironhack couldn't have been better. The course was well structured and the pace was just right. We learnt the basic concepts and then focused on practical training for real world applications. The immersive nature of the program makes it easy to learn in three months, and the friendly environment definitely helps.

    I am currently studying Digital Marketing at UCLA. I have since learnt Node.js and React on my own and I'm working on launching an application soon!

    Era lo que necesitaba para darle un giro a mi carrera como diseñadora gráfica.
     
    ​Aprendí a presentar en público mis proyecto, a ganar confianza en mi misma y en lo que hago. Aprendí a organizar el proceso de trabajo para llegar a un buen resultado. Refresqué conocimientos y adquirí mucha información sobre lo que se maneja actualmente en la profesión, que era justo lo que estaba buscando. Aprendí mucho de mis compañeros, me tocó un grupo de personas excelentes con las que sigo en contacto y fueron muy importantes los dos meses. ​

    La hiring week superó ampliamente mis expectativas, me han contactado por segunda vez casi todas las empresas. 
    Era insegura para las entrevistas y esa semana noté un cambio en mi bastante grande, que estoy segura que tiene que ver con todo el proceso de aprendizaje de los últimos meses.Fue muy interesante toda la experiencia y conseguí trabajo antes de terminar la semana.

    Antes de comenzar IronHack, como ingeniero industrial, llevaba la dirección técnica del área eléctrica de la empresa donde trabajaba. Aunque tenía una carrera profesional encauzada, no me encontraba a gusto con hacía y decidí cambiar por completo de dirección hacia el mundo de la programación y las empresas tecnológicas.
    Dentro de Ironhack te encuentras muy cómodo en cuanto al trato, ya que todo el mundo intenta conseguir que encuentres a gusto y ayudarte a conseguir aprovechar al máximo la experiencia: desde los teacher assistants, hasta cualquiera que pase por allí y que te pueda ayudar.
    También hay que destacar que en Ironhack coincides con gente que, por distintos motivos, busca lo mismo que tú y en la que te vas a poder apoyar para poder llegar aún más lejos.
    Aunque el tiempo es limitado y hay muchas cosas a las que tienes que dedicar tu tiempo, consiguen que tengas una visión global y de cada una de las partes de una aplicación web, que puede ser desde algo pequeño como un site de venta online hasta Twitter.
    Una parte de la formación y del apoyo que te brindan se dirige directamente a la búsqueda de empleo, aportándote tácticas, caminos y consejos para que tardes lo menos posible en encontrar trabajo una vez que termines.
    En resumen, es una gran experiencia.

    Antes de entrar estaba desempleado, lo último fue montar un negocio con unos amigos que no tuvo la tirada esperada. Había tenido muchas experiencias laborales sobre todo de IT en sistemas, y alguna muy casual de desarrollo.

    Mi experiencia fué fantástica, superando toda mis expectativas, incluyendo el agotamiento!.  Te lo podrán contar, pero hay que vivirlo. Increíble la implicación del equipo de Ironhack y como la transmiten a los alumnos. Un día a día de retos, trabajo, pero también de diversión. Donde te llevan al límite pero están atentos de que no caigas. Lo “sufriría” otra vez.

    A parte de aprender las diferentes tecnologías, que es obvio. Aprendí sobre mis límites y capacidades, a trabajar en equipo, a presentar mis proyectos, etc. cosas que quedan más allá de la parte técnica pero igualmente importantes y que en otros sitios se dejan de lado.

    Lo que más me gusto fué el ambiente, sobre todo el compañerismo, y lo podría resumir en el hecho de que estando a pocos días de la presentación del proyecto final, con el agua al cuello y estrujando cada minuto para finalizarlo, cualquiera de los compañeros sacaban un momento para pararse y explicarle a otro cualquier duda.

    Before Ironhack I was a civil engineer searching for a job in Spain but all the job offers I use to receive were for working in  Middle East or South America, that's why I decided to turn my career around and become a developer.

    The experience couldn't be better. I had an amazing time doing the bootcamp, not only because lectures were very dynamic and exercises fun to be solved. I do also found real friends, either classmates or teachers.

    I learned to code and became a real Web Developer in a record time, but the best I learnt, was that you can achieve all you set out for yourself. It doesn't matter if it's a programming language, a new framework or a new career, you can do it.

    Right now I'm a Ruby on Rails Developer at NEORIS AND I'm in charge of the backend for Santillana App. Definitely Ironhack served me to accomplish this challenge. I think is an amazing academy and I recommend it to anyone who wants to improve his skills.

    I was studying computer engineering at the Rey Juan Carlos university when I decided to do Ironhack. My experience has been really good in every aspect. The social one thanks to the really good community (with my classmates and teachers), and the professional level, I've learnt a lot.
     
    I've learnt about MEAN Stack (in Javascript) something really important and totally different from any language I had learnt during my time at university. Today is one of the most important languages as is one of the most demanded for companies.
     
    I would say the best thing of ironhack are the good moments with my friends, for me, it was like another family.

    My @ironhack experience

     

    On my whole life I never knew what was my passion until I discover code.

     

    Y started my professional studies as a survey engineer because I liked maps and i was good with maths and all of this engineer stuff. Later then when I finished my career I tried to work on this but because of the crisis there was close to any job on my sector and I decided to do a GIS Master.

    During the Master I found by chance code & programming and I fall in love with it.

     

    It all happened a few months before start the Ironhack and back then I tried to learn it all by my own to be able to work in the stuff I figured out I love.

    But the thing was that if I wanted to change my whole professional career I couldn't do it just doing some courses time to time. I needed a shock therapy and then I decided to course the ironhack bootcamp.

    It was two hard months of coding trying to do my best and learning as much as I could. Lots of code hours, lots of frustration but also lots of persistence and fun figuring out how to solve things.

    The best thing I learned? You can create everything you want with code and you can learn whatever you dare yourself to (I.E. during the course I learned alse React+Redux and include those techs in my final project).

     

    In the personal field I meet lots of interesting people (currently friends) Which who I can talk now about code and for sure have some beers :)

     

    As a reward of my hard job at the Ironhack bootcamp I started to get job offers after the minute 0 before Ironhack and now I can say that I made the right choice by choosing work at  Influencity.

    My recommendation to work as happy as I think I am at the moment? Choose an epic team over anything! 🍻

    The education I received at Ironhack was top rate. The instructors and staff are very knowledgeable and have given me the skills to create things that I could've never dreamed of before! I would recommend (and have recommended) Ironhack to anyone looking to get their start in the tech field.

    Before I joined Ironhack I was working on temporary jobs, or I was unemployed and looking for new opportunities and usually studying on my own. 
     
    IH has been a very positive experience, my main goal was to find something where I could focus my career on, and I think I've found it.
     
    It may sound like a cliché, but I think at IH I have "learn to learn" when it comes to programming. The best part by far was the good environment with the rest of ironhackers, there was very good vibes, everyone was helping one another to learn.
     
    My final goal was to get a stable job as a programmer. At the moment I'm working in a company that came to see us on the "hiring week", so everyone should guess if the bootcamp was worthy for me

    I completed my Ironhack bootcamp in between my Sophomore and Junior year of college. I had been studying Computer Science at shool and had taken a few programming course before starting. I did know how to code, but I had difficulties when entering higher level courses since I thought my foundation was not strong and that I lacked having a full understanding of basic programming fundamentals. I also had no idea what type of programming field I wanted to enter since I was only 20, so applying for an internship was difficult. I really wanted to take my 3 month summer vacation and learn a lot, which was when I turned to Ironhack. 

    Ironhack was the best decision I made as a programmer. I still am amazed at how much I learned in 10 weeks. The circulum of the Web Development bootcamp was outstanding. I was learning languages I wasn't getting the opportunity to work on at school, and it focused on both Back-end and Front-end development, so I got to see what type might interest me to later on pursue as a career. The experience was long and tedidous, but I would recommend it to ANYONE seriously interested in programming. Although I had expierence coding beforehand, I ALWAYS felt a challange at Irohack and was constantly learning. I cannot say enough amazing things about the lead instructor, Nizar, and the T.A., Nick. They dedicate so much time and effort to make sure everyone in the class is on the same page. Both would answer any questions I had. I was finally having those "aha" moments where concepts finally clicked that I was missing at school! 

    Although it was definitely rigorous, the Ironhack environment was always so much fun. There was never a day that I wasn't excited to come into class. I loved the partnered exercises. I really felt that they were beneficial since you will always be working with people in a work environment. The assignments you work on are about interesting topics such as creating a movie triva game or using the Spotify API. For the final project, the topic is up to you, and working on it was definitely my favorite part of the bootcamp. Not only did I really see the progress I made, I got to work on an idea that I was passionate about and turn it into a fully functional website. 

    When I returned to school in the fall, I felt so much more confident going into my classes and interviews. I now have a fully active GitHub that showcases all my hard work throughout the course, and I still use it today.

    My background:  I finished my computer Science Engineering 10 years ago, since then I have been working mainly as systems Engineer , having very little programming involved at my work.
     
     I´m a very practical person whow has always pretty clear my objectives , so the decision to go to Ironhack was taken after months of  careful research pursuing the best option and valuing what steps should I make on my professional career.
     
    Just before the bootcamp  I was working as an IBM Presales Engineer in a mixed role : half technician / half commertial). The technical part did not involve programming .
     
      IronHack has fullfilled the expectatives i had for the bootcamp: First getting used to programming and  the new technologies  used by the market at this day, Second  find a Job right after  the bootcamp so I could start as soon as possible to program and keep growing as a programmer, I acomplished both at the end of the bootcamp ( on the job part  I had 2 offers just by one week of interviews).
     
    I would recommend the experience , even though a minimal comprension of programming is required , any person with passion and hardwork can pass it through. I enjoyed mostly every day with new practices and new things to learn and hard challenges to confront everyday , lets be clear about this ,Ironhack its not easy and is very intentse, but  the benefits adquired through strugling and frustration are more rewarding with the system it has ( having to do a weekly proyect on week 3 already).
     
    I´m currently working as a FrontEnd Developer developing an application running in Angular ( one of the technologies covered by the bootcamp)  at a digital marketing company that develops its own solutions. Having done several proyects at IH made my integration at the developer´s team very fast and within the first month I was on the same programming path as my companions.
     
    About the staff and professionals that works at IronHack i´ve got no complains as they were trustworthy and had the knowledge I seeked to fulfill my goals. I also had luck having great fellow students that were encouraging each other whenever one got stuck over difficult issues . 
     
    If you are researching IH I think the best way is to ask one of the ex-alumni that are over internet, linkedin or even in person at the events. They would probably tell you  that they dont regret the experience and solve many doubts you may have.

    Before attenging Ironhack Madrid, I worked in Miami for a company related to technological products and LED illumination, named Airis USA. I was the Operations Supervisor and was in charged of the whole operations of the company since the Operations Manager was not in town always.

    My experience at Ironhack was amazing. Amazing because at first I was lost and thought that I have made a mistake, but as time passed and I learned more, I was so amazed with my abilities and my coding, that I couldn't believe. 

    I learned to learn from mistakes and that to be an expert in something you need to practice and never give up. The best aspect of Ironhack was the environment in which you learn to code. The teachers, assistants, managers, and collegues are always so open to help and motivate to give the best effort always. 

    Right now I am back at my home country, Ecuador, working in a digital consultancy company. I work as Digital Account Manager, although it sounds more as a business related position, I am always in touch with programming and programmers in order to deliver the best project. I am not 100% of time coding, due to the fact that I have a business background as well, but I continue learning from the programmers in the company.

    I attended Ironhack in March 2016 and it was probably the best move I've taken in a while. I was able to learn a lor of great tools that I always wondered about in Web Development as well as reinforce some of my self-taugth knowledge.

    The instructors and TA were amazing and always ready to help. The staff gave us their full attention and helped us navigate the areas wer struggled in in order to maximize our time at the bootcamp.

    The facility and location are both great and the environment at BUILDING.co was fun and inviting.

  • Great Experience!

    My experience at Ironhack was very positive.
    The pace of the bootcamp is very intense and requires practically exclusive dedication, but the result is worth it.
    I learned totally unknown technologies. I am currently working with them on a company that hired me a week after finishing the Bootcamp.
    No doubt, Ironhack has helped a lot to the turn I wanted to give in my life.

    It was really demanding, but it was exactly what I was hoping. I really enjoy being under pressure every day, giving the best. Obviously some days it was really frustrating, because you can´t overcome an issue, but that´s part of the course, you need to learn to surpass the frustation. Without notice, I learned a huge amount of things, and after some weeks I felt ready to confront any challenge. On my personal experience, I learned a lot about coding environment . I came from a super different background, where almost everything has really similar ways of doing things. What is awesome about coding, is that you have thousands of ways to do things. So I can say, I learned to learn, and take my scares off about coding. The best? The everyday environment at school, it was awesome, the classmate and the staff was incredible and make a huge working making the 12hs a day really bearable. I really enjoy the hiring week, unlike any other I have had, I think the key about this one is that you got 10 minutes with every employeer to show your projects and talk about your working expectations. This is awesome, because first of all, it force you to talk to every company, and in the same way, force the employeers to pay atention to you in those 10 minutes.

Thanks!
