    I had a quick look at Thinkful last year, and then moved on, thinking that they were a bit "light-weight", but boy, was I wrong!

    The "Web Development Career Path" with the job guarantee made me realize that Thinkful had a stake in my success, which meant that they would teach me what I needed to learn, in order find a job after graduation.

    I am so glad that I decided to join up with the "Web Development Career Path" this year, because now I can see that their course-ware is as challenging as it needs to be, given that they want to prepare me for a job.

    I see my mentor 3 times per week. He is a highly experienced developer who not only mentors aspiring developers, but also owns a web development business, which means that I get real world guidance, and invaluable insight into the industry, as it really is.

    I've come across many developer courses, but I think that Thinkful has a good balance of course-ware, workshops, daily question and answer sessions, and great mentor assistance. They might need more workshops for beginner topics, which I had already been familiar with, before signing up.

    I am almost a month into the course, and have found that most of the lessons are text-based, but very short and to the point, with coding challenges throughout, and a project at the end of each unit. I would have liked to see more of the content presented via video, since it would make the information more easily "digestible", thus a faster learning experience.

    I have not participated much in their Slack community, but it seems to be very busy, so I'll eventually do that at some point. Having a mentor 3 days per week seems to be working well enough at this point.

    All-in-all, my experience thus far, has been great. I am very excited about completing the course, and finding a job as a developer.

    As a brand new student to programming, what I have enjoyed the most about Thinkful is the community. They offer plenty of tools to meet with new students and mentors whom are always flexible to share their knowledge and help you when you are stuck at some point in your course.

    I believe motivation is a key component for all students and Thinkful targets this very well with fun projects yet challenging enough to create and strength solid skills in short time!

    Another aspect I appreciate is their fast response with the support team and in general they are always looking to improve by actively listening to us: the community. 

    I totally recomend it!

    I started the online-only course with some apprehension, but I was quickly relieved once I started my weekly meetings with my mentor. I love that the course is designed so that you can work at your own pace, which makes it great for people like me who work full time. On top of getting weekly video hangouts with your mentor to get feedback and discuss your work, mentors are also available via Slack and email throughout the week. I have learned so much in such a short amount of time, and I am already applying what I've learned to my design process. The Thinkful site is very well organized and the tools make it easy to keep track of all the coursework. Overall, it has been a great experience!

    hi there,

    I am really happy with the course so far, I'm learning a lot and this is exactly what I was looking for.

    I have only one thing to share with you,

    Obviously it might be only me, but I found the jQuery section a bit confusing. I didn't know anything about jQuery and JavaScript and I think the lesson covers too many things at the same time instead of giving a step by step overview of what you can do with jQuery and how to write it.

    so, before going properly through that section, I studied all the jQuery lessons that W3s chool has to offer, I found them really helpful and easy to learn. After that, I came back to Thinkful and going through that section was way easier than before and I understood everything.

    Obviuosly I don't know about other students, so maybe it's just me, but I wanted to share this with you.

    Anyway as I already told you I really like the course so far.

    Many thanks

    Giuseppe

    I have done the Front End Web Developer course and now I am doing the Angular course. Thinkful has got everything just right:

    - one on one mentor

    - course material that challenges you but you have assistance if you get stuck

    - show you how to use real industry tools like sublime text and GitHub

    - career advice

    - price: great value for money

    At the end of four months I feel confident in being able to change career path, what more can I say!

    As a new web developer I found the course challenging but not overwhelming. The main reason that I selected Thinkful was because of the mentorship program, which was excellent. I enjoyed having the access to someone who had experience in what I was studying and be available to breakdown problems and provide guidance to find solutions.

    Studying at Thinkful was an invaluable experience. I am really happy because I have acquired much of new knowledge and I managed to create a small portfolio, demonstrating my new skills. The curriculum is written in a very clean and simple way and you have full guidance on your projects. Of course as the lessons go by you get to work more independently but there is always enough information and online help to walk through the challenge set. People at Thinkful were really helpful and caring, from my mentor to the Slack community! I hope I will come back to a new course soon!
