    I would do it again in a heartbeat

    After investing my time, energy, and money at Rithm, I now have the job I was hoping to get at a salary in excess of my expectations.

    I chose Rithm after finding a javascript meetup that they were hosting and realized that their ciriculum was designed just for me. It was so much easier to learn from them than anywhere else I looked. That doesn't mean it's always easy: it can be intesnse and hard. That said, they really know what they're doing.

    Would definitely choose them again

    Great instructors, small, lots of attention, real community feel. I think they did an excellent job in preparing me with the concepts and technology I need to understand in order to begin my career. Being a small school, I had amazing access to them - and the instructors really cared. I spent many an off-hour getting extra help from them.

    Best bootcamp in SF for 4 reasons

    I'm a graduate of Rithm School's 3rd cohort. Having done a lot of research about bootcamps before I decided to attend one, I'm convinced that Rithm School is either the best or at least at the same level as the best programs in the city. And I would wholeheartedly recommend Rithm School to anyone considering learning full-stack web development in SF.  

    Here are my top 4 reasons why I think so:

    1. Company projects -

    I highly recommend Rithm! Great instructors & environment to get you career-ready...

    I was part of Rithm’s third cohort, completing both the 6-week part-time and 13-week full-time programs. Prior to deciding to join the third cohort, I also attended a large number of Rithm’s free coding workshops.

    My experience was fantastic, and I would highly recommend Rithm to anyone looking to learn more about coding and get career-ready for a job as a software engineer. Thanks to the program and all that I learned (in addition to a lot of hard work), I transitioned from a ca...

    Part-Time Course Review

    I am a Product Manager who came to Rithm School looking to improve my technical skills.  Originally, I came considered doing a full-time bootcamp.  If I did decide on that route, Rithm would be one of my top choices.  

    The instructors are very knowledgeable about programming and are very patient with students such as myself who are not originally wired to think the way most developers do.  The support I received outside of class definitely enriched my learning experience.  I app...

    I came for the free food, and stayed for the full-time course

    I was fortunate enough to attend the full-time web development course at Rithm School as a part of their third cohort.  I can say, with full confidence, that this was one of the best learning experiences that I've had to date.  And here's why.

    Learning how to learn

    At Rithm, I learnt a whole slew of programming languages (Javascript, Python, Ruby) and their corresponding libraries and frameworks.  But the most important skill that I learnt at Rithm was ...

    An overwhelmingly positive experience

    I attended Rithm as part of its third cohort, and I am so glad I did. I landed a great job offer within a month of graduating! It's amazing to me how fast I was able to make such a big pivot in my career.

    I also applied to and was accepted at Hackbright, which has an excellent reputation, but several key differences led me to choose Rithm.

     

    Small class sizes

    Rithm classes are capped at about 12-16 students per class. My cohort had 1...

    Part-Time Java Script Course

    I just completed Rithm School's part time JavaScript course.  It was a great experience particularly because the instructors always provided some challenging exercises to work on.  They go beyond the basic 'JavaScript for front-end type of thing' and get you to do algorithms and other types of exercises that is more common for backend engineers.  Even though I am not in Rithm School's bootcamp, they are still open to answer any questions.  They are my teachers for life!

    I took the Rithm School part-time JavaScript intermediate course. It is a six week (one day a week) course that goes over basic JavaScript (primitives, objects, arrays, etc.) foundations all the way up to advance topics such as recursion, the keyword 'this' (a confusing topic before taking this class), prototype, DOM Manipulat...

    Best decision I've ever made

    Hi.

    My name is Aric, and I graduated from Rithm 2 weeks ago.

    As a 19 year old freshman majoring in Computer Science at Azusa Pacific University, I discovered that the higher education system was not for me. I quickly lost interest in my classes because quite frankly, I didn't care about what they had to offer. I wanted to go to school to learn how to code, not spend 60% of my time on Gen Eds.

    Needless to say, I didn't take college seriously at all and began lo...

    Solid Staff

    Best group of instructors that I have had the privilege of learning from. Their responsive teaching style caters to novices as well as experienced students. The best part is how well they prepare you for the job market. I was already working at my new job the Monday after graduation!
