    I received a job offer 8 days after I started my search. Thinkful prepared me very well. 

    The best part of Thinkful are the people. The mentors and career coaches are fantastic. I had three mentors, and each one was very different. They came from different backgrounds and communicated in different ways. It is up to the student to control these sessions, and if its not working, you may ask for a new mentor. 

    The worst part of Thinkful is being in the middle of their miscommunication. They have people all over the world supporting you, and they are very bad at talking to each other. I served as the middleman between every project manager and mentor I had. On three different occasions I was left without a project manager or a mentor, and it was up to me to figure out what was happening and to fix it. 

    The communication problems were very frustrating, but its hard to complain when I got the exact job I had wanted before the bootcamp, only 8 days after I graduated.

    - 5/2/2018

    I am currently a Thinkful student taking their Flex Web Dev program.

    Before I decided to go with Thinkful, I researched many different programs, both in-person and on-line. Based off all the reviews I read, and taking my own personal cirumstances into account, I came to the conclusion that Thinkful's curriculum and format was the best fit for me. So far, my experience has been overwhelmingly positive and I highly recommend their courses. When it comes down to it, most boot camps cover the same topics with the main difference in experience being attributable to the student's awareness of their preferred learning style and their expectations of the program they choose. Get distracted easily at home? Then Thinkful's online programs may not be for you. More self-motivated and able to stay focused in any sort of environment? Then Thinkful may be a better choice.

    Even though Thinkful is online, this is not to say that Thinkful just throws you some BS online materials and doesn't provide you with any support. On the contrary, my mentors have been the most valuable part of this experience and I can't imagine doing this without them. Meeting with a mentor twice a week has allowed me to go through the thoguhtfully scaled curriculum at my own pace, taught me how to teach complicated subjects to myself (an invaluable skill to have as a developer), and helped me to create some really cool projects that I am very proud of (side-note: yes, you are paying to teach yourself the provided materials essentially, but if you're not into that then you probably shouldn't become a dev any way since tech is always changing and you'll be teaching yourself new things for the rest of your career-- might as well learn how to do it proficiently now with the help of a mentor than struggle with it later on). Furthermore, the open Q&A sessions with other mentors for the days I do not meet with my personal mentor have been so helpful so I don't waste too much time on a problem I'm stuck on. This has kept up my morale since learning to code is an inherently frustrating pursuit and anything to keep you moving forward = good.

    I do not have much experience with their job assistance, however I find their job-garuntee unique among all the programs I researched. If they didn't believe in their ability to train you properly, they wouldn't promise that, ya know? So far though I've been very impressed and my only bad experiences have come from general over-work that comes with the territory of doing a boot camp.

    Bottom line: I would highly recommend Thinkful if you're into a more self-guided, independent approach to learning how to be a dev.

    I am four months into the full stack flex and the journey so far has been amazing. I was very skeptical of bootcamps at first and read a lot of these reviews before I first started too, but after going through the program I can confidently say that Thinkful goes above and beyond your expectations. The program offers all of the material since day one and you can go comfortably at your own pace without the pressure of finishing by a deadline. Of course it's in our best interests to finish quicker when considering tuition costs, but I can confidently say that I have learned so much within these past few months and it has been worth it. The biggest pro of Thinkful in my opinion is the 1 on 1 mentorship. Every week you can schedule a mentor session as much as you need and get help on whatever questions you have. The support is extremely helpful and the staff has been very flexible and supportive. Thinkful has been an amazing experience and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a program that helps you from the ground up.  I have built two capstone projects so far and I am excited to finish my last one and start the job search soon. Very excited and grateful for the experience so far!

    This has been a great journey for me coming from virtually no programming background. The coursework is really good at taking a fairly new topic and familiarizing us and eventually helping us master it. The most vital aspect of this bootcamp is the one-on-one sessions with a personal mentor twice a week, who is a very experienced developer. This really helped me a lot! On top of that, there are multiple Q&A sessions going on during the day with other mentors where you can go in and participate and ask any questions you may have. There are various milestones that you hit during the course and many projects that you create (which eventually becomes your portfolio as well). This really helps you gather whatever you've learned up to that point and make something out of it. That's the best way to learn and remember what you've learned. Also, there are technical evaluations and mock interviews at different stages of the course to make sure you understand the topics as well as prepare you for the real interviews. Also, you are assigned a program manager who can help you with any problems related to the overall program and also keeps track of your progress. The loan options that they provide is also very flexible. The overall community is awesome.

    All-in-all, the overall structure of the program is really designed so as to ensure your success. I am really excited and glad that I went with Thinkful!

    In November 2017, I started my Full Stack Flex Course for Thinkful and immediately loved it. I had previous experience in HTML, JavaScript, CSS and flew through the beginning lessons. As the curriculum got more complex, jumping into Node/Express and the Back-end, my frustration definitely grew like it would for any other program. The difference from self-study and studying with Thinkful was the community and the help of a mentor. 

    A big pro to the Thinkful Online Full Stack Flex Course were the Q&A Sessions that are available to students where staff members have an office-hours type video call where they help out all students who drop in with the questions they have. The staff members were extremely helpful and willing to answers further questions outside of the office hours.

    The biggest pro for me was my mentor who pushed me through the program and helped answer questions I ran into along the way. He was able to keep me motivated and to meet with me multiple times a week, which is something I, as a student, definitely needed in my beginning steps. Also, my program manager was able to help by choosing a mentor for me that he knew would fit my preferred style of learning. The staff definitely help to mold the program accordingly for your success, which I greatly appreciated.

    With the pros come the cons and one of the biggest cons was the lack of focus on design. This was not necessarily a problem with the program as a whole, but more because there was no time to focus on it with so much time dedicated to the fundamentals of front end and back end code. 

    Overall, I am currently a few weeks from completing the program and have no regrets in taking it on. I do recommend that those completely new to web development should dedicate more then the recommended 30 hours per week to the program.

    I am genuinely surprised that they managed to make a developer out of me! I feel the curriculum is not sufficient for someone coming from absolute zero coding background, but they have lots of recommendations and external sources with it. My mentor was brilliant, and beyond helpful at all times, I really enjoyed working with him. I would definitely recommend this course, because of the great deal of support, flexibility, and good quality education.

    I'm currently attending the online Full Stack Flex program with Thinkful. I participated in another in-person bootcamp elsewhere and found it really lacking as concepts weren't explained thoroughly and instructors/staff weren't around often enough to help me through tough assignments. So I found Thinkful through Course Report!

    At Thinkful the course curriculum is so thorough that I'm able to tackle a good 70% of it on my own. They provide so many additional resources if you want to dig deeper or if you need help understanding a concept. Besides the fantastic material, there are also many Q+A sessions throughout the day. If I'm ever stuck on a problem for more than an hour I hop into a Q+A session and am guided in the right direction. I've been in many of these sessions and interacted with many of the instructors and each one helps put me on the right track without handing me the answer or making me feel stupid for not knowing something. I also have an incredible mentor I meet with twice a week on a video chat where we go over my homework and any questions I have. 

    There's also a strong focus on job eligibility between mock interviews that are part of your course requirements, career Q+A sessions offered several times a week, and the capstone projects that are great additions to a portfolio.

    I'm so grateful to have found Thinkful through Course Report! I find myself facing mental challenges I never experienced before yet it's all good because the Thinkful structure and team is encouraging through every step.

I learned so much from the people at Thinkful, not just about programming, but how to interact with the developer community, which is filled with so many talented people from all walks of life. I want to thank Thinkful for introducing me to this community, and I recommend anyone interested in Wed Development to sign right up!

    As a student in high school, I've looked into many options for me to learn web development. Every boot camp, online or otherwise, turned me down except for Thinkful. WIth a simple email and no questions asked, I was allowed to participate in the Full Stack Flex program. Now I'm a month and a half into the course and I absolutely love it. The mentor program is extremely helpful and even in the time between mentor sessions, there is a slack channel open for questions. The course is divided into 6 modules with a final project/capstone and a mock job interview at the end of each one. Everything about the course prepares you to be job ready by the time you graduate. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning about web development.
