    Best Outcome I Could Have Hoped For

    I highly recommend Rithm School. While it may not be as well known as schools like Hack Reactor or App Academy, I have absolutely no doubt that I made the right decision with Rithm. 
    The curriculum is second to none. You learn the latest technologies and the curriculum is changing all the time in order to make sure you’re learning the latest and greatest. 
    All of the teachers are incredible. My lead instructor was Joel, and he is one of t...

    Best Career Decision!!

    Hands-down the best decision I’ve made in my career. Prior to Rithm, I’d dabbled with software engineering on nights and weekends. However, Rithm really helped to take me from a hobbyist to a confident professional!

    Simply the best out there!

    Deciding to choose Rithm School was one of the best decisions I've ever made. The curriculum, company projects & job search support provided me the knowledge, techniques & tools to launch a successful software engineering career. But what makes Rithm stand out above the rest is the small class sizes and 1-on-1 support from experienced industry professionals. Through daily code reviews, I not only learned how to code, but also how to write clean, testable code applicable to the in...

    Classical Musician/Teacher --> Rithm School: Best Decision Ever!

    When I first started thinking about switching careers to become a software engineer, I looked around for resources to start learning, and stumbled across Rithm’s free courses. I loved that the entire curriculum was available and free, and that I could see where it was going and why they were teaching things. I didn’t understand what any of it was, but as someone with a Masters in Education, I really appreciated that the thought was clearly put into it and that it was all available. I sen...

    Exceeded my (high) expectations

    I have virtually nothing but great things to say about Rithm. I did a fair amount of research ahead of time trying to figure out the best program to choose. In the end I was deciding between Hack Reactor, Rithm, and Flatiron and (after a lengthy pros and cons list) chose Rithm because of its class size, language/frameworks it focused on, company projects, and alumni I spoke to.

    Having worked my way through the program as the second "pandemic" cohort (so we were virtual), I can say...

    Rithm School - A Must!

    About Me: I attended Rithm school from 02/2021 - 06/2021. I left a career that I felt unfulfilled with as a biochemist in a very-well recognized biotech company in the Bay Area, California. Great work but just a bad fit in the role left me a bit sour, burnt out and looking for a change. I graduated university in 2014 with a B.S. in Biochemistry with great grades at an unranked and unrecognized private college.  I worked there at the biotech for a few years and did a cou...

    0 regret investment in my future

    I had a fantastic experience at Rithm School (Class of July 2021) and would highly recommend for anyone who is considering the bootcamp path to becoming a Software Engineer.

    Key highlights:

    Company Projects: This by far is what makes Rithm stands out from its competitors. We were able to get exposure to working in a live codebase to fix bugs, create features, practicing scrum based development. When trying to get your 1st job after a bootcamp...

    Great program!

    Rithm School was amazing! I loved the small class sizes, and their curriculum is solid. I’m a fan of how they try to keep up with industry standards with the materials they teach. The structure of having a lecture in the morning, lab right before lunch, another lecture after lunch, and another lab in the late afternoon was super effective in helping me learn and retain everything well. My one critique is that not all the instructors are on the same level, and your mileage may vary for co...

    Small classes, individual attention, & internship

    The admissions process at Rithm School gives you an idea of how the classes will be.  First, you solve a couple easy/medium questions and once you pass, you schedule a pair programming interview with an instructor.  Yes, it's really just you and one of the instructors pair programming (and not you with 20 other people in a Zoom breakout).  They'll challenge you and ask you how you can make your code better, or if there's another way to solve what you just solved.  They also give specific...

    COVID-era Graduate -- Incredible Experience!

    Attending Rithm School was one of the best decisions of my life! Like all bootcamps, it wasn't 100% perfect, but to me, the drawbacks are completely outweighed by the benefits. Here is an honest review of Rithm based on my (REMOTE) experience:
    Environment/Culture: Pros:  SUPER collaborative and tons of pair programming experience. It really helped me improve my technical communication, and it was a great way to connect with my clas...

    Great Program

    Initially, I didn't know what to expect going into this program but the Instructors are great and caring. I had classmates from different cultures and backgrounds that all succeeded throughout my time as a student. There were three active instructors in my cohort of about 15 or so students. Having three instructors on call helped a lot. I thought the lectures were very concise and clear with a lot of time for paired programming. The career coach definitely takes time to make sure you're ...

    COVID-era graduate

    I loved my experience at Rithm School. My favorite aspects of Rithm were the company projects, the staff, and the career search module.

    Company projects were mini-internships where we were able to touch a working codebase. We had been building projects throughout the program, but this was where you had to put it all together. I honestly had no idea what to expect work to look like when first going to boot camp. Company projects gave me real-world experience that I could speak of i...
