    I attended the Ironhack Part-time Web Development Bootcamp in Madrid. An intense 6-month zero-to-hero program for anyone wanting to open their mind to the exciting world of web development.

    My initial knowledge of the technology stack in the curriculum was basically null, but I was starting a position as Software Engineer at an up-and-coming startup in Madrid, and I needed to learn as much as I could as fast as I could. Ironhack proved to be just the right thing for me. For the sake of organizing the review, I'd like to split it in three parts: the Curriculum, the Experience, and the Staff.

    1. The Curriculum
    I do not want to get too deep into this because it has changed quite a bit since I did the course. My class was the last of the Ruby on Rails Generation. Nonetheless, the course was generic and conceptual enough that using other technologies, such as Node.js in my case at work, proved to be quite easy. They have since changed their curriculum to Node.js, which is a great idea in my opinion. You will come out having a broad enough knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript to be able to tackle the coolest web-dev projects you find on Github and, as well as a great notion on working with databases. You will definitely have the skillset necessary to build your own projects from scratch as well. I think the best way to define the learning process at Ironhack is that you gain the ability to explore and master the tools you need to build a web application. The stack they may use is no limiting factor.  In essence, you get the wings you need to fly on your own through the web-dev universe.

    2. The Experience
    It's intense. Even the part-time  plan is challenging and demanding. For 6 months you will have to be strongly committed to the course, because how much you learn will depende entirely on you. Ironhack will provide the tools you need to get as far as you want to go, but the effort has to be there. The pacing is neither too fast, nor too slow, although you do have to work at home a bit if you want to keep up. If you come from a totally different background, or are writing your first lines of code, you'll probably need to work harder than people who are more familiar with code. But fear not, you will have awesome support from your classmates and teachers.  You will be spending two days from 18 to 21, and Saturdays from 9 to 17 at Ironhack, so be prepared. Balancing the course with a full time job and your personal life is definitely possible, but you will certainly need the willpower to do it. The structure has changed since I did the course, I believe now it is more project based (three projects in total), and at the end you get to share your creations with your mates and with people from all over the community that come to the Hackshow. 

    3. The community
    This is, in my opinion, the greatest value in Ironhack. You will make great friends with your teachers, you will make great friends with your classmates, and will live an amazing experience carefully crafted by the entirety of the Ironhack team. You will be connected to the community before, during and after the course. There will be lunches, dinners, parties, hackshows, hackathons, talks and so much more to make the Ironhack experience that much more enriching. Every member of the Ironhack family, not just the teachers, is there to make the most of the program for the students, and it really shows. Also the space they have in Madrid is beautiful, making it a pleasure to go there work and spend time.

    Overall a great experience that I thoroughly recommend to anyone that want to dig into the world of app-building - whether you are thinking of a cool project, want a career change, or work in product and want to understand what the devs at your work do. Ironhack is sure to satisfy your curiosity.

    I found Ironhack about 6 months after finishing undergrad. At the time, I was preparing to go to law school, but once I realized it wasn’t the right fit I had to re-group and figure out my next steps. I was working a very boring job in retail for about 8 months before Ironhack, so obviously I was eager to get started.

    I did a ton of research before committing. Needless to say, for many prospective students it can be daunting to put a pause on your career to take a risk on a bootcamp that may or may not live up to your expectations. In my first two rounds of interviews, Alia and Marisa immediately quelled these anxieties. The amount of care that the Ironhack staff puts into each cohort is unrivaled. Something I really admire about them is that they’re always working to improve the next cohort based on what they learned from the last group.

    The course was split up into the steps of the design thinking process, with a new instructor each week. 1 design sprint, 1 group project and 2 solo projects. This stood out to me in comparison to other design programs because it gives you the opportunity to show off the work you can do on your own as well as what you can contribute to a team. At one point you’ll be working on two projects at once (group and individual), but it’s very manageable. (My advice would be to document everything along the way via Medium posts so that you’re not scrambling at the end to put together your portfolio.) Our TA Horacio was always available to help us through any road blocks we hit along the way. Your cohort will be your greatest support system and will challenge you to work harder and smarter.

    For hiring week, Brito gave us a choice of 15 employers to interview with. It’s up to you to choose the companies you want to sit down with, but I would highly recommend interviewing with as many as possible. Not because you’ll get a job out of the hiring fair, but because the interview practice you’ll get is an invaluable experience. Don’t worry about wasting the time of employers that you’re not serious about because several of the companies that came in during our hiring fair immediately told us they weren’t hiring. Regardless, the experience made me a pro at interviewing and gave me the confidence I needed to succeed in my interviews that followed.

    Even if you don’t get hired immediately, Brito makes it his mission to get you a job. I really appreciated all his support and advice throughout the job search process. He’ll help you through the gritty details of negotiating offers, writing follow up emails, and anything else you need to know along the way. He’s an invaluable resource, listen to him!

    I got hired 3 weeks after my program ended. I couldn’t have done it without the support and care of Alia, Marisa, Danny, Brito, Horacio, and the rest of the amazing staff, instructors, and TAs at Ironhack. That said, you will not get a job just by taking this course. Work hard and listen to the advice from Brito, your instructors, your mentors, and even your classmates.

    “If you’re empathetic by nature, and you have a head for problem solving, along with a thorough understanding of general design principles and processes, a healthy combination of functional and aesthetic sensibilities, a willingness to learn, and you enjoy the work, there’s absolutely no reason you can’t quit your shit job as soon as possible, so that you might do what you were really born to do.” X

     As a sophomore college student pursuing a Computer Science degree, I joined Ironhack with the purpose of fast-forwarding my start as a programmer, and that way I would get some real experience while finishing school. The course was really intense. Every class we would go over a different topic, but first half an hr of class was dedicated to go over the homework, and at the end of each module (the course was divided into 3 modules/units), we would have a review of the whole unit and a project in which we would implement what we learned. The Ironhack staff is the nicest! They are friendly, with a great energy, and encourage you to success! Building facilities were great! They're 24/7 open, so during project week my classmates and I would stay until very late coding and helping each other, and we as a group got really together, even though our cohort finished almost 2 months ago, we still stay in contact! The people you meet here are truly special, full of drive, and seeing all of them working full-time jobs, studying and barely sleeping staying coding after midnight is really inspiring. Our TA Nick was THE BEST! There's one day when he even slept over at Building just to help us with our projects! Brito, the Placement Manager was awesome! He helped us create our resumes and LinkedIn profiles, which is key when looking for jobs. In general, was an amazing experience, and would definitely do it all over again!

    Before starting the UX/UI Design course with Ironhack I had a comfortable job. You know one of those come to work, do your job, don't ask any hard questions, grab lunch, go to a meeting or two. I was comfortable, but wasn't fullfilled. I knew I had to make a move to puruse a life that I really wanted, possibly in the fastest amount of time possible.​

    I had experience within the UX/UI design field prior to my comfortable job, I took on a few freelance jobs as side income, but I wasn't anywhere near able to puruse a full UX/UI career. I needed to add to my portfolio, tighten up my design skills, and meet more people in the industry.

    I knew I needed further education, but the question was what program or school could offer the results I needed in the fastest amount of time possible? Before I make any big decisions I research the heck out of everything, comparing, contrasting, emailing past clients or students in this case, and asking everyone I could on what they thought of the program I would be spending a good chunk of money on. I researched design programs in Atlanta, Chicago, and Texas, speaking with their advisors and asking a multitude of questions. None though were as genuine, honest, and optmistic as Alia Poonawala from Ironhack. I placed my application on a Monday morning, she called me the following Tuesday morning, requesting I come into a meeting later that day. She answered all my questions, even allowing me to briefly meet Daniel Brito, the Ironhack Placements manager and one of the most genuine/well connected humans I have ever met.

    I accepted the offer from Ironhack two days after the meeting, quit my job, and began my UX/UI journey for the next 3 months.

    The friends I've made, students, mentors, and industry professionals, was something that I did not expect. THIS IS NOT ANTOTHER DESIGN MILL CHURNING OUT STUDENTS PEOPLE. This is a real community of designers, developers, and creative professionals coming together to help each other be the best they can be.

    The instructors who taught the course varied in design expertise, but all truly cared about your sucesss. They provided revelant design skills, insights, and mentorship, allowing me to learn about things that have helped me succeed as a professional today. Now I do reccommend that you consider the amount of time you want to put in here. What you put in as far as questions and extra practice is all up to you and will benefit you if you allow it to. They will give you the water but it is your decision to drink, so to speak. The course is broken up into different parts of the design process, for different weeks, and this allowed us to really deep dive into the specific designs skills that we needed.

    Professionally, the course also provided resume/portfolio advice, mock interviews, and branding guidance. They teach you skills as a designer but also prepare your brand to be competitive in this field. This is something that places Ironhack a notch ahead of other schools.

    Upon hiring week, yes they have a hiring week, I interviewed with 12 potential companies, gainining 3 job offers and accepting one offer for a well-paid consulting gig. Now, like I mentioned previously, you have to listen to what Daniel Brito, the hiring manager, says to a tee, he is an industry expert and will give you the best advice if you listen. You also have to put in the time during/after class to sharpen you skills and listen to the design instructors, they will not give you the job you have to honestly work for it.

    Overall the most important thing I learned from this course, besides the many design skills, was that you can accomplish anything if you truly put your mind to it. My class consisted of students from all types of backgrounds, biology, anthropology, I came from psychology and digital marketing. But we all gained enough valuable skills and contacts in the field to accomplish our goals, whatever that was to each individual. 

    Join this program if you REALLY want to be a designer, this is the program to take your career to the next level.

    I started the Web Dev bootcamp having had some academic experience in programming a few years before (introductory computer science university courses).
    My goal was to learn the professional basis of web development, in order to later be in a confident position to apply, work and gain experience in the field. Having finished this course about a month ago, I conclude that this mission has been achieved :)

    After finishing the course, I was offered to stay on board as a teacher assistant in the next cohort, in addition to the more experienced teachers already on the team. I accepted this opportunity with pleasure, having done tutoring in the past, and as I found Ironhack to be a productive and fun environment.

    A few good points about the course, from a mixed perspective of a former student and a current team member:

    • As a student, I found the Ironhack team to be personal, accessible and dedicated to its students. The general manager and all the other staff were always a room away, and ready to greet anyone with kindness and a positive change attitude.
       
    • Having researched the market a bit, and consulting friends who are experienced developers, the curriculum learned in the course seems to be extremely relevant to the current ecosystem. As a team member, I notice the effort we make to constantly adjust the course as needed. This is a regular mission, as technologies change, trends come and go and the market shifts.
       
    • However, beyond the specific technologies learned, the most important skill I gained during this bootcamp was the conceptual understanding of the process and architecture of a full-stack project. For instance, a strong focus was understanding what APIs are, how they are designed, and how they serve as a kind of language to interact with data. Understanding and practically implementing such modern web dev concepts are indispensible in becoming a developer yourself.

    I now feel confident starting my career as a web developer, and so I can recommend this experience for whoever is in a similar situation.

    Prior to attending Ironhack I worked as a teacher and coded whenever I was able to find the time. As I coded on my own, I would often find myself getting stuck, frustrated, and not knowing where to turn. After research and visiting several bootcamps in the Miami area, I decided to attend Ironhack for the full time web development course. One of the key factors in my decision was the desire to learn Javascript and the MEAN stack, since I knew they are popular and in-demand technologies of the web and Ironhack had recently re-vamped their curriculum to reflect that.

    The staff at Ironhack is like a family; they do everything they can to make students feel a part of that family, as well as a part of the Miami tech scene. Marisa, Danny, and Alia are always checking in to make sure you feel supported and are adjusting well throughout the course. Nizar, the lead instructor, is awesome! Not only is he a smart, experienced teacher and a Javascript wizard, he’s also extremely helpful and humble. He is very patient and takes the time to break everything down so you truly understand the concepts, whether it is as a class, or one-on-one. He supports his students, giving them the confidence and tools to succeed in anyway he can. He gets to class early, stays late, and gives 110% every day.

    The TA’s at Ironhack, Kevin and Ariel, are former graduates of the program. They are very knowledgeable and help support the students since they have been through the bootcamp experience themselves. Instead of just telling you how to solve whatever you may be having difficulty with, they help guide you to the solution so that you can really think like a programmer. If you are really stuck, both Kevin and Ariel do a great job of reinforcing key concepts.

    Daniel Brito, the placements manager is one of the most passionate people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. If you are seeking a job after graduation, Daniel is one of the most powerful weapons in your arsenal! He is a networking guru in the Miami tech scene and has the top players come in to speak to the class.  He constantly encourages you to have “no chill” and will work hard and fight for you so long as you put in the work.

    The most important things I gained from attending Ironhack are learning programming and knowing where to turn when I got stuck. Ironhack taught me the foundations of web development and skills that I can transfer as I learn new programming languages and grow as a developer. I was able to get a full time job as a developer a little over a week after graduation, and I can truly say Ironhack has helped me change my life!

    Now you might be reading this and asking yourself, "so this sounds great, but what's the catch?". There is no catch, but don't be fooled into thinking this course is easy. The amount of information you learn and the speed of the course is very intense. You have to put in a lot of time and effort into every aspect, both inside and outside of the classroom. There will be days where you're exhausted, you want to slam your head against a brick wall in frustration, and your code just won't work. But if you work hard, trust the process, and seek support, you will finish the course in disbelief with what you've accomplished in such a short time.

    I took Ironhack's Full Time Web Development course in Paris over the summer 2017. It was the first batch for the Paris Ironhack campus. My motivation for taking this course was to build up the skills necessary to code the prototype of a project I had a mind. Having finished the course 3 weeks ago, I can definitely now say: mission accomplished!

    I'm today fully able to build a full-stack web app on my own and I knew close to nothing about web development on day 1. Disclaimer: I had had some coding experience some 10 years ago in unviveristy but nothing related to web development. Bottom line: I fully recommend taking this course in Paris.

    Here are a few highlights:

    • The team (teaching and non-teaching) is amazing! They are very attentive, thoughtful and friendly
    • The course material is very comprehensive, with a lot of opportunities for putting theory in practice. It is so well detailed that you could almost follow it on your own.
    • The student-teacher ratio was quite low for a coding bootcamp (maybe 5-6 to 1 on average)
    • The extra-curriculars were nice: talks, events, happy hours. The team has close access to the tech world in Paris and was able to bring in some interesting players.
    • The location is amazing, in the heart of Paris. The WeWork office where it was held is a really high end location - the rooftop view!!

    Overall, a very positive experience and I would recommend it to any one who wants to learn web development!

    "I couldn't imagine someone can learn this much in just 9 weeks!"

    I went to Ironhack because I had a background in Computer Science but had little to zero experience with Web Development. I like that they gave us a pre-work exercise couple months before the bootcamp started so that everybody starts more or less at the same level. The location, building and stuff are super nice! Everybody is very friendly and willing to help. Our instructor Nizar is very knowledgeable and is a true Javascript ninja that can answer pretty much any question you might have about coding. Nizar is also very dedicated and truly loves coding which makes him an excellent mentor. Kevin and Ariel as TAs were very helpful and would stay with students even after hours to help which is great! Daniel Brito was very positive and knowledgeable. He is a placements manager and will do his best to help you land a job in this field so be sure to listen to his advices and attend the social events (super important!). Alia Poonawala is super friendly and nice and I think Ironhack Miami is in good hands with her as a bootcamp director. 
    The reason I'm giving 4 out of 5 stars because of the curriculum/pace. In my opinion we were spending too much time on easy things especially in the first 1.5 weeks which has led to falling a bit behind on a schedule and having to skip some topics/exercises later in a course. I do recommend future students to try and complete those after hours as you will gain more experience and have better understanding of how things work. Work hard and it will definitely pay off in the end.

    I'm sure you're reading this because your a skeptic. It's hard to believe that a course can teach Full-Stack Web Development in 9 weeks, and get you ready for a job in the field. Before I get into my review, let me preface it with a little information about myself. Prior to Ironhack, I worked as a line-cook, with no college and almost no programming knowledge. A week and a half after Ironhack ended, I had two full-time job offers to become a Web Developer. Now, it's not a magic wand, that will automatically give you a job. You have to work for it, and you have to love what you do. It is an intense course.

    The intensity of the course, did teach me one of the most important things, when becoming a developer, and that is how to learn. The tech industry is constantly changing, and since the course is very fast pace, you learn to learn, and that's what future employers want to see in junior developers. 

    The instructor of the course is Nizar, and he knows his shit. Not only does he know what he's doing, he's extremely passionate about it and truly cares about his students. On multiple occasions he would stay well past 9, to make sure he could help everyone and ensure everyone is on the same page. Nizar is not only a great teacher, but a great mentor.The T.A.'s, Ariel and Kevin, were also always eager to help, and would always be there for guidance. Building upon that, the entire staff at Ironhack is truly wonderful. They care about your well-being and almost immediately become your family.

    As mentioned earlier, the class is intense, it's definitely doable if you have the heart for it. My class size was about 20 students, but it was one of the larger cohorts. During the course, you truly become close with your fellow students as you're all going through the same experience. 

    Brito, the job placement manager, is insane, and I mean that in the best way possible. In the last week, he will make sure you are absolutely prepared to get a job, whether it be making a resume, practicing interviews, and applying for jobs. He will do everything he can to make sure you get where you need to be, provided you put in the effort yourself. He's not there just to make sure you secure any job, just to boost some imaginary number. He will make sure that you get a job that is truly right for you. 

    Only 3 months prior to my graduation of Ironhack, I was working in a kitchen, and now I am working full-time as a web developer. The course is difficult, but if you put the work into, it can change your life.

    Ironhack is definitely one of the greatest decisions I have ever made. I went into the part-time course with the fear I would waste my money on a course that would ultimately leave me feeling unprepared for taking a role as a Web Developer. Instead what I found is the most supportive network of individuals who truly understood the sacrifice I was making and gave their everything to make this a worthwhile experience.

    Not everything was perfect, especifically for Part Timers the variation in instructors was not conducive to the most stramlined way of learning, but they adressed these issues personally with us, assuring we still got everything we needed and did not feel left behind.

    I definitely recommend Ironhack for anyone trying to make a change in their lives. I had been in Retail for the past 6 years and it was becoming harder and harder to see a way out, but thanks to Ironhack I can finally do something I enjoy for a living and pursue a career in a field that I love.

    What is taught at Ironhack is the MEAN stack, which is incredibly valuable to learn as is one of the most demanding technologies on the market. Also, team work, resilience to frustration and how to overcome it was definitely a strong take away from the course.

    I got a front-end job a week after I finish the Bootcamp, and I can say that is thanks to Ironhack, I think that says all about career impact. The learning content and interview preparation are both invaluable for succeeding on technical interviews.

    The instructors are all experienced developers with years in the industry, therefore they don’t only teach you the technologies but also give you good advice on how to succeed as a developer and what companies are looking for.

    Ironhack’s staff is awesome, they are always there for you. They listen to your concerns and try to resolve any issues you might be having. They even schedule 1to1’s with students regularly to make sure you are happy with everything.

    The classroom is like one big family, don’t be surprised if you finish the course with 20 new friends to hang out in Barcelona.

Thanks!
