"Ultimately rewarding, but room for improvement"

Pros:
-Structured class setting with minimal lectures and lots of hands-on work
-Great workshops that don't hold your hands
-Great setting for working with others whether it's pair exercises or group projects
-Great instructors who are always available to... Read More

Cons:
-The pacing of the course could use some work. e.g. REACTOs (practice technical interviews) are more of an after-thought in the current set up when they are so crucial for the job search
-Based on my experience, the weaker students are generally grouped with the stronger students for group projects, giving little incentive to demonstrate that you are a top student; almost better to just do the bare minimum on the Junior phase.

There are a lot of things you can learn on your own, and I thought software development may have been one of them. When I attended Fullstack Academy (by way of the Grace Hopper Program), I went farther and higher than I could have ever expected. This... Read More

I have made lifelong friends in this program. The people I've met have been kind, funny, considerate, thoughtful, intelligent. There's a strict "no assholes" policy and I think that goes a long way.

It's an intense and immersive program, and yet I am motivated to continue growing and learning. The material is constantly updated to keep up with the current landscape in software development, and it shows. The instructors aren't afraid to test out new material / libraries with us to make sure we are as up to date as we can be.

I ended up continuing as a teaching fellow in the program for 3 months following my graduation. I was able to look for work in the second half of my fellowship, and received an offer within two weeks of looking. Holly, the career success counselor, was vital in helping me through my search, in salary negotiation, and in quelling impostor syndrome/general job search anxiety.

I was a skeptic of bootcamps but I'm really happy I decided to attend this one.
