    Great environment that is not for everyone

    It really comes down to how hard you are willing to work and how fast you can pick up new concepts. If you cannot meet these two requirements you are going to have a hard very time here.

    Lighthouse Labs teaches both Objective C and Swift. They teach Objective C first which has a bigger learning curve but once you grasp the core concepts everything falls into place and it really makes you appreciate Swift.

    I’ve seen multiple students drop out throughout the course. If yo...

    Great at some things, Good at others, Bad at some.

     

    Having attended the Web Development Bootcamp, I wanted to write a review to expand a little on some of the other reviews' points of argument. Everyone who works at Lighthouse is extremely helpful and passionate about coding, which makes it easy to absorb that sort of attitude. However with some instructors there's a certain level of expectance of knowledge, despite them advertising there isn't actually any knowledge required to begin.

    Because it's a 2 month program it...

    Sexual Harassment

    Having attended Lighthouse in its first year I can attest that this is not a good school for women. If you want to be the brunt of sexual jokes or told you belong in design, this is the spot.

    General Manager

    Dec 01, 2016

    Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. Speaking for the administration at Lighthouse, as the General Manager here in Vancouver, I take such claims very seriously. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment, and our code of conduct for staff & students reflects this. I am following up on this with our alumni and current students, as well as our mentors and staff.

    I would urge anyone who experienced anything like harassment—or indeed anything that caused them discomfort—by a student, staff, or teacher, to reach out to me at sylvia@lighthouselabs.ca. You could create an anonymous gmail account, if you don’t feel comfortable sharing your identity.

    We will investigate any information that comes our way, and I will update this thread once we’ve done that.
