    The online bootcamp you need

    The course material of The Firehose Project has a good flow that it holds your hands in the beginning and slowly make you do stuff on your own. Then enforces it with repetition with the creation of full-fledged applications.

    The support team reaches out often. Code reviews, feedbacks in an instant. You get it in 15 - 30 minutes in the forum aside from having a 1-on-1 mentor access.

    The overall learning process in The Firehose Project is great!! =)

    Better off to go to an in-person bootcamp

    At least, if you've got one near you.

    Thankfully, I attended the Firehose Project back when it didn't cost $6.5k (it was $4k then), but I still sorely wish I could get my money back on something that gave no discernible ROI. While I was not expecting a job guarantee, their job assistance program was poor at best in 2015-2016. I put in my own work, applying to web development jobs and going through at least a handful of interviews never to get my foot in the door after completing th...

    Solid Program

    Hey everyone!

    Just wanted to drop in and leave a quick review about my experience with the Firehose Project. 

    Honestly, I'm typically a skeptic, as there are a TON of "online experts" out there with a lot of promises. This was not the first online course that I had gone through, although it was certainly the most costly and the most in-depth.

    Short Version: IT DELIVERS.

    I joined Firehose with a single goal in mind - I had started a business that was build on...

    Firehose Project 25% Complete

    I am working through week #10 of 42 in the Firehose program and am happy to report that it's going very well and that it is overall a great experience. The lessons are now becoming less "hand-holdy" and require more thought to work out, but there is still plenty of guidance to help you through the material. The material is set up and written in a very understandable and user-friendly fashion and the projects that you build are not only useful, but entertaining as well. The challenges are i...

    Firehose Intro to Software Engineering

    I've taken 20 lessons so far in the Intro to Software Engineering course, which is a prep course for deciding on whether or not a bootcamp is the direction you'd want to go in. So far, the videos have been very high quality, easy to follow along with and descriptive. Some of the definitions have been a little lacking in my honest opinion because they tend to be less metaphor based (don't always have the novice in mind) but overall it's very high quality. This is not really an issue because...

    Hariharan Sai

    I am having a nice time learning to code, I started with prep and finding it interesting and motivating. I am learning it at my own phase (taking few steps at a time due other personel commitments). Now, have a idea what coding is all about. Hoping to learn more.

    Thanks to ken mazaika and his team.

    Now a self-sufficient developer.

    The Firehose Project is a fantastic course - I could not recommend it more.

    The style of learning (written and video lessons backed up by mentor sessions) is a great fit for the aim of the curriculum: turning you into a self-sufficient developer. If you want to be able to build webapps, whether that be for yourself or for a company, this is the course for you.

    When I was deciding between the vast array of options for coding bootcamps, I consulted the reviews on this bo...

    Great Bootcamp

    The program was great because I got to build several apps that all got increasingly complex over time. I also liked how i can ask any questions to the instrcutors or mentors or even students in the program if i get stuck on a code and they would be as helpful as they can.

    The group project is awesome because it allows you to apply all of what you learned and beyond as well as working in a team of 4-5 students to build it which gives sense on how web developers...

    Very flexible for those working full time

    Firehose was an easy choice after reviewing the schedule and curriculum with Brita and completing the pre requisite materials. It was clear to see this program could be completed working full time. Other bootcamps I looked into made me question my ability to focus on them with a less structured or more demanding lesson plan. I completed a few other structured study programs for other bootcamps before selecting The Firehose Project.

    I really enjoyed how the les...

    Journey to web development

    If you're looking for a boot camp that will help you on your journey to becoming a web developer, look no further. Firehose project has given me the initial push to enter into this new world. The team is very personable and have gone above and beyond to answer any questions I had while going through the lessons. They don't give you the answers to the homework that's assigned, but they give you pointers that will lead you to solving the problem.

    Highly Recommended

    I did my research for online code camps, and tried my hand at a couple. 

    Firehose is by far best. It starts you off as a complete novice, and explains in detail from start to finish. Im currently in the bootcamp prep and have already learned more than at the other bootcamps I have tried.

    Highly recommended

    I used to watch videos everyday on the internet about programming languages like JavaScripts, Ruby, Pythons, etc..but none of them compare to the free bootcamp prep. That's why I recommend everyone to enroll in the program, which I will do when I am done with the bootcamp prep. Hats off to you guys!
