    Got my dream job because of Rithm School

    I attended Rithm and was part of cohort 5. At first I was a little skeptical about attending a boot camp since up until that point I was taking a bunch of online classes on Udemy. Why would I pay to go to school to learn something which I could easily learn online right? I couldn’t be further from the truth and a couple weeks in it was readily apparent to me that I still had a lot more to learn. 

    The teachers are top notch and know their stuff really well. I did my due dilligence a...

    A great place to learn

    I was part of Rithm’s 3rd cohort (Elie, Matt, and Tim taught) and enjoyed learning there. Like many of you are doing, I was researching a lot before deciding on a coding school and spending hard earned money.

    I hesitate to say like many others do that “it’s the best decision of my life” or “life changing” because everyone has had to make many smaller decisions up until the point in deciding to get into development seriously (or most any other career path, tbh). Plus, no matter what...

    Amazing experience led by passionate instructors and down-to-earth students

    I had a fantastic time at Rithm School. I was in the 3rd cohort in a class of 11 students. We had so much individualized attention that I was never waiting on a question for more than a few minutes, and the other students were very helpful, kind, and down-to-earth. It was not a cut-throat environment because we were not competing against one another; there were so few of us and there are so many engineering job openings that we knew that the most important thing was helping one another suc...

    Can you really change your entire life in 3 months?

    Hi 👋 my name is Andrew Mundy. I was part of Rithm’s second cohort at the beginning of 2017. As we approach a year since the beginning of my developer journey I wanted to outline my experience. I had been living in SF and working in the bar and restaurant industry for some time. I didn’t have a college degree, I hadn’t been in touch with technology, I had a flip phone. Besides some experience with Adobe products, print design, and a little HTML- my knowledge of coding was infantile. So how ...

    Top Notch Web Development Immersive With A Personal Touch

    I'm a graduate from Rithm's second class, and I can unequivocally state that it was a fantastic life decision. But I've read more than my fair share of optimistic bootcamp reviews, so let me say a little why I think so highly of Rithm School. I'll try to be as objective as possible, but its pretty hard to contain how highly I think of this school and its staff.

    #1 Class Size: The first reason that Rithm stands out is class size - my cohort was 8, and the current ...

    10/10 Would Attend Rithm Again

    Rithm was a fantastic experience from start to finish! Good course content, excellent instruction, friendly instructors and TAs, with lots of individualized attention. I had been slowly working through some Udemy classes prior to that, and I do feel like given enough time I would have eventually gotten to a proficiency level to start applying to jobs. However, the decision to attend Rithm was a total rocket booster to the process, likely saving me an additional 12+ months, and ended up b...

    Rithm School was the best decision I made - no regrets!

    Rithm School delivered on everything it promised: small classes, personalized attention, regular 1:1 meetings, knowledgeable and passionate instructors, positive learning environment, solid coursework and a TON of job assistance support during and after graduation. I learned so much, faster and better than I would have on my own. I gained a lot of confidence in my abilities. I made great friends with peers and alumni. And I was wonderfully prepared for my job interviews and ready to ace ...

    Rithm === excellent!

    I had such an incredible experience at Rithm. I was initially drawn to smaller class sizes (and the opportunity to learn a second back-end language, which proved VERY useful in the job search), and it did not disappoint. It's equal parts rigorous, engaging, and dare I say fun. The instructional staff is top-notch and really take the time to make sure you understand the material. It's clear that their focus is on you as the student, not on their graduation/employment stats or anything els...

    Best decision I've made!

    Like most people, I struggled choosing which software development bootcamp I wanted to go to. I did a lot of research on Course Report and Reddit to help decide out which school would be the best fit for me. I'm so happy that I ended up choosing Rithm! A few of my favorite things about attending Rithm were - 

    1. M-F classes - Having class M-F allowed me to not experience burn out and still have a healthy work/life balance. 
    2. Internship/Professional Project - The professional ...

    I am so glad that I made the choice to attend Rithm School. I found an awesome job within 2 months of graduation, and I think this is only because Rithm has prepared me really well for the job search. There are several things that I really enjoyed at Rithm:
    1. The class size is much smaller than other bootcamps, for my cohort we only had 12 people and each one of us was getting so much attention from our instructors; 
    2. The curriculum is really well designed, we learned javascript...

    Great experience

    Rithm was recommended to me by an engineer hiring manager I know. He said the caliber of student coming out of Rithm was much hiring than other bootcamps. 

    The instructors were super knowledgable industry professionals. The course work was challenging and interesting. It was definitely worth the money. 

    I was hired within 2 months of graduating.
