    I started the full stack flex program at Thinkful with the intention of switching careers to that of a computer programmer/web developer.  I had very little knowledge of computer programming beforehand and was looking for a time-efficient way of switching careers while still getting a quality education.  I have to say that I am very happy for choosing to study with Thinkful.  Being that the course is over the span of 6 months, the program is intensive and challenging, but the quality of education is very good and the resources Thinkful provides are invaluable.  The curriculum is thorough and my mentor has been a huge help is helping support my learning when I get stuck.  

    I also appreciate how honest and straightforward Thinkful was before I started the course.  They told me in advance what I could expect and how much time I would have to invest.  Instead of just trying to sell the course, they accurately depicted what the next 6 months would look like if I decided to take part in the program.  The program also teaches the more in-demand aspects of programming (from what friends already in the field have informed me of) so I am definitely confident this will be a successful yet efficient way of transitioning my career.

    I've been in the Thinkful full stack flex program for about a couple months now. I researched a lot of 'bootcamps' and programs before committing and couldn't be happier having landed on Thinkful. From the first interaction with people of Thinkful everyone I have worked with (mentors, program managers, other students) has been great. They always engaged with me very positively and on a very individualized, personal level. The curriculum is great so far. I had learned on my own for awhile previously, so the first month was an easier recap and now I am getting into new and exciting stuff. It's a great mix of text based learning and projects. Though parts of the program, like mock interviews and attending meetups, can be intimidating for me, I know they are incredibly beneficial for real world experience.

    Mentors and mentor sessions are great. Not only are they nice and knowledgeable but the regular sessions keep you motivated to get work done before each session. It's a good way of keeping yourself accountable for moving forward on the material (something I was struggling with learning on my own). Having all the useful Q and A sessions to access is also great as a back up resource.

    What really exceeded my expectations was my local Thinkful community (Portland, OR). Getting to meet with folks IRL on a weekly or more basis has been really positive. I thought a drawback of Thinkful was going to be the it was an "online program" but I couldn't have been more wrong. Mentors and students alike are always offering to meet up and work together. It's been really helpful to have these opportunities to again help with accountability, to learn more, and to foster a network of people in my local tech community. 

    Lastly,  a consistent thread through all of this is that Thinkful is 100% focused on getting students where they want to be...hired. It was obvious that other bootcamps just want to get tuition and churn out students and hopefully keep their stats up and only paying lip service to career help afterwards. Thinkful is not like this. Everything the do from changing curriculum, to networking with local companies, to incorporating mock interviews, to their robust career services is student first focused and I have real confidence that our goals are aligned.

    Learning to code for whatever reasons is a daunting task. Its intimidating and super easy to get discouraged especially if you aren't making the progress you assumed you'd have. Thinkful covers all bases for students looking to learn while focusing on a huge piece most other resources fail to aknowledge. Confidence is truly key. Thinkful does a great job exploring this competency by opening the door to an incredible network of alumni and other students who have had similar experiences while also pairing you with incredible mentors who have a clear understanding how to get you to the next level. The curriculum is written incredibly well, the team is inviting with feedback and the people are all excited to not only learn, but to teach. I think theres something to learn here from thinkful when we think about learning to code in todays world.

    I have finally graduated from Thinkful's Flex program as a fullstack developer.  I am currently in the job search phase for a week and have already connected with several companies wanting interviews.  Even though I am not in the largest tech area of the United States I find myself feeling confident moving forward and answering questions without any issue.  I feel ready to be a developer and I will forever be in Thinkful's debt for preparing me well. I feel that their mentor program and the support of the program managers cannot be matched and gave me the support I needed to push through even when I wanted to quit.

    Thanks Thinkful

    I have been taking the Full Stack Flex program from Thinkful and I am very satsified with the amount of knowledge, help, and support I have received these past few months. I was very skeptical in the beginning of bootcamps with the cost and all the job guarantee reports that you see, but I can assure you that it was very worth the investment. I think the mentor sessions are what sets Thinkful apart from other bootcamps. You have a mentor who is actually a professional developer in the industry help you and guide you throughout the course and it is very helpful. I am finishing up and I am very excited to start my developer journey through Thinkful.

    I am wrapping up the full stack flex program and have found a lot of value in it. It set me up well to find a job in web development. I spent about 15-30 hours on the course per week and am finishing in 5 months. The technologies are relevent and the curriculum is updated frequently. The slack channel community is helpful in helping out when you are stuck. The Q & A sessions are very helpful. The mentorship model was great to keep me on track. Definately worth the time, money and hard work!

    Thinkful is one of the most expensive bootcamps out there. And naturally, I thought it would be one of the best out there. It also had so many good reviews. Now, I think they remove all the bad reviews and just keep the good ones. 

    It is definitely not worth the money they ask. The curriculum is not that great and teachers are fine but pacing is just awful. Also, I can not stress this enough. You can not, You can not learn programming and become developer in few weeks. If you put effort and time, you can get same resources provided by thinkful all over internet. 

    Do not go here.

    I am currently about halfway through the the Thinkful Full Stack Flex Program. This program has been great in developing my skills, knowledge, and confidence as a web developer. I considered doing the Engineering Immersion program and decided on this program after talking to an advisor at Thinkful. I was concerned that there may be a difference in the amount of preparation given by the Flex program versus the Immersive program, but it sounds like the main difference is in the format and structure. I am someone that does well with self-study, so the Flex program made sense for me

    The program is rigorous and I’m working full time at it. I would say that there are several modes of learning: written course materials, external resources, embedded examples and exercises, small projects, and large projects. The student dashboard area is clean and pleasant to use. The mentor sessions are helpful in getting technical questions answered, but are also a place I’ve gotten a lot out of asking general questions about best practices and working in the industry. I’ve found the mentor sessions useful as a way to spend time verbalizing concepts and making a connection with someone in the field.

    The mock interviews are challenging and are a clever way to present a kind of exam on the last section of material as well as interview practice. It is necessary to have both a thorough academic knowledge of the material to answer interview questions and the coding expertise with it to succeed in live coding challenges.

    I’m happy to say that my coding facility and technical knowledge have increased greatly in the course of the program. Also, my confidence in knowing that I’m studying relevant high quality material.

    I'm currently a student in the Full Stack Flex program, and so far, it's been great! I was first following the self taught route for a few months, but felt like I needed something more structured/guidance. So about three months ago, I started looking into bootcamps, and found Thinkful. I've been in the program for about two months, and definitely don't regret my decision. Thinkful has a great curriculum, you get to practice the skills you learn as you go. It's not easy but not impossible to do either. I've learned so much these past two months. Everyone, from my mentor to program manager, and everyone else I've encountered in the program have been really nice and super helpful. Mentor sessions and q&a sessions have been very helpful as well. There's plenty of resources to take advantage of in case you don't understand something, or want to reinforce your knowledge. It's been a great experience so far, and I would definitely recommend Thinkful to anyone!

    Current student at Thinkful, here. It's been a good experience.

    I'm roughly halfway through the Flexible Web Development course. Let me start by saying that the information presented at Thinkful is freely available on the web. By choosing to enroll at Thinkful, you are paying for:

    1) A clean and organized presentation of the information, given in an effective order.

    2) Mentorship (both 1-on-1, and group session if you choose) by seasoned developers who are familiar with the traps/landmines you're inevitably going to encounter during your journey. They will make the journey much less painful.

    3) A program manager who will track your progress and push you to succeed in a timely manner.

    4) Access to an active Slack channel with other Thinkful students and developers.

    5) Organized events/meetups.

     

    I'm finding #1, 2, and 3 to be most valuable to me. I have a program manager and mentor who keeps me motivated, so I've gotten further than I did with Codecademy. I'm likely to graduate in September 2018.

I was happy to see there was an option with solid reviews and flexible hours - quality learning experience without having to give up current income. This is a time intensive course, there is a lot of information to take in and retain. I have been very lucky with my mentors and program managers, seems like everyone is there to help out without just handing me answers. It has been a great experience and I truly feel like they want me to succeed, not just pass. I haven't made it to the job support phase yet, but I am looking forward to it. If you can put in the time, this is a great place to learn. Good luck!
