The Firehose Project
[The Firehose Project has been acquired by Trilogy Education.] The Firehose Project is a full-time, 22-week and part-time, 42-week online coding bootcamp that combines expert one-on-one training with a customized, robust curriculum and a worldwide student support community. Students start coding on day one and are paired with a senior software engineer mentor to build their coding skills. Students also have access to a proprietary Q&A forum and technical office hours. Graduates will develop algorithms, design complex data structures, and learn fundamental computer science principles while building a portfolio of advanced web applications that work with APIs, user authentication, advanced database relationships, video streaming, and more.
Firehose has also launched a new job track designed to prepare students with everything they need to optimize their job search as a new developer and make their transition from bootcamp graduate to employed developer as smooth and swift as possible. Firehose worked with technical recruiters, alumni, senior developers, and partnered with BrandYourself, the leader in online reputation management as seen on Shark Tank, to engineer a track that provides students with optimal job preparation resources.

Easy to understand and enjoyable through the style of teaching. Creating a project from scratch and building a profile webpage while learning was extremely helpful and inspiring. The instructors are very knowledgable/experienced with humble attitudes creating a fun, relaxed and productive learing envirnonment. I will continue to progress because of this :).
- The Firehose Project changed my life.- 9/6/2017Kiiza Joseph Bazaare • QA Test Engineer • Student • Campus: Online
The way concepts are introduced and explained on the site made it very easy to learn general programming concepts that could be used to learn other programming languages.
The mentors always provided support when it was required and also left room for me to discover and learn on my own. This has helped me to always push myself to grow but also realize that I need help from others.
- A excellent online course- 9/5/2017Lucas Costa Barreto • Computer Engineer • Applicant • Course: Free Bootcamp Prep • Campus: Online
- Highly recomended- 8/31/2017Eric • Electrician • Applicant • Course: Free Bootcamp Prep • Campus: Online
I didnt know what the "coding" link was on facebook but clicked any to do some exploring, and after following incredibly simple steps I found that I was half way through desiging an online portfolio.
I didnt relise how simple it could be and how much I actually enjoyed this which has created a new interest and new possabilities for me. Unfortunatly it is a hobby for me and I cannot afford to join the Firehose Project however I would highly recomend anyone who is looking to do a career in this field to join these guys.
The online support in incredible and not over bearing where they are annoying you. They are just there, friendly and ready to help.
- Top Notch Content- 8/27/2017Pau • Software Enginner • Course: Part-Time Software Engineering & Web Development Track • Campus: Online
I have been organizer and volunteer for the Refugees On Rails project in Munich, a coding school for refugees. Thanks to a partnership we have used solely the content in the Firehose project to teach our students Ruby and Ruby On Rails. We have been impressed by the quality of the different tracks and lessons and it has given us a lot of ideas to suggest extra exercises to our students. Moreover, we have been able to set a structured course to teach software development and provide the students with the right content at each step of the learning path.
I would strongly suggest the Firehose project to anybody willing to start the Web Development career path :)
- Thanks Firehose Project from Rormuc Munich- 8/27/2017Alireza • Software Engineer • Graduate • Campus: OnlineThanks a lot to Firehose Project, by support of Firehose, we, teachers and students of Rormuc (Refugees on Rails - Munich) had very good content to teach and study Ruby and Ruby On Rails. Professional and technical instructions, examples, homeworks, all were what we found and used in Firehose Project. I recommend Firehose Project to all.
- Got a great first job- 8/16/2017Rajas Pargaonkar • Web Developer • Student • Course: Accelerated Software Engineering & Web Development Track • Campus: Online
I attended The Firehose Project from September 2016 up and until February 2017. I actually had to cut the course short because I got a job offer at a financial technology start-up almost two months before the course finished.
The training was great, and the reason I know that is because I was able to handle the programming challenge I was given by my eventual employer without too much difficulty. I had to create a small application in about three days, and TFHP was able to training me well enough that I could do it. I'm thrilled with the results.
As far as any downsides, I don't see any obvious ones. TFHP may be one of the few bootcamps that actually has an advanced track (Angular, React, SQL, APIs, to name a few) that helps you continue learning on your own.
I highly recommend the Firehose Project.
- First week of bootcamp- 8/15/2017Derek McCool • Student • Course: Accelerated Software Engineering & Web Development Track • Campus: Online
I just recently finished the 2 week prep course at Firehose having already taken some Ruby courses on Treehouse. I really appreciated that there was feedback on some of the coding excercises. I am only a day into the actual bootcamp at this point but I already feel like I am learning more than if I had been left to my own devices. There are alot of people out there that will say why pay for a bootcamp when there are so many free resources out there. Granted there are probably some that could effectively learn that way, I feel like alot of bad habits could be developed learning to code without regular feedback. I am excited for this journey and I will write another review after I have completed the bootcamp.
- Excellent- 7/28/2017Guillaume Bihet • Course: Free Bootcamp Prep • Campus: Online
I have just spent two months comparing all available online bootcamps. In the end I selected two that involved a deeper approach that would include more computer science than traditional bootcamps. My preferences went to The Firehose Project but I was still hesitating a bit until I followed their free prep course, which convinced me to go for the full program. Everything is lively, well organized and presented, the challenges are interesting and rewarding, and the comunity forums active. I highly recommand it as a great introduction to html/css and Ruby.

- Firehose Prep Course Experience So Far- 7/28/2017Greg C. • Applicant • Course: Free Bootcamp Prep • Campus: Online
I am almost half way through The Firehose Project Bootcamp Prep Course. I just recently created and uploaded my first website to the Internet and it was a lot of fun doing it. There were a couple of times I became frustrated and stressed when I could not figure something out, but before reaching out for help I used troubleshooting skills I have developed over the years and either found a workaround or finally figured it out. I am more than willing to reach out for help when I am stuck, but I find that I learn a lot more when I try and find a solution by myself. Ken, Marco, Brita, and a couple of software engineers that work with Firehose have been a great support to me during the prep course thus far. It is nice having industry professionals evaluate my code and website (gregcorrigan.getforge.io) and their feedback is very helpful. I am hoping to be accepted in the full course in the next month or so and am looking forward to a change in careers.
- Excellent course- 7/26/2017Asiya • Student • Campus: Online
I've started my course in June this year, so somewhere in a middle of the programm now. It's amazingly well structured. From the very first lesson you deploy your web apps and make them not only functional but a good looking also. This is great. You can tell that curriculum is a very well thought and the Firehose Team are very responsive and attentive. When I got stuck with something and posted a question Ken Mazaika responded literraly in the next couple of minutes. Deffinetely recomend!
