"From 2nd grade teacher to full-stack web developer"
My experience at General Assembly's Web Development Immersive was life-changing. After I got laid-off from my job teaching public school last year, I decided to take a leap and pursue my interest in computer programming. I researched programs and chose... Read More
I learned so much during my twelve weeks there, and afterward I and all of my classmates managed to find entry-level jobs and internships as web developers. My friends who grew up coding were incredulous at how much we were able to learn in twelve weeks, but I really did learn enough to find full-time work in the field, and I've continued to learn more every day on the job, and I'm now contributing to a great software team, writing code and fixing bugs, and loving my work every day.
The teachers were great and devoted, and the organization gives them a lot of support for becoming better teachers, and in general everyone there was incredibly receptive to feedback and working on improving the program every day. It seems like a lot of money until you compare it to a semester at college, or think about the amount of time it would take you to learn this stuff on your own (if you ever could - I tried to teach myself before I got to WDI, but there were so many things that I really just couldn't have learned on my own, so many layers of technology and complexity - the gulf between playing around on codeacademy to actually building web apps is absolutely enormous.
In the six months since I finished my course at WDI, three of my friends have signed up to follow in my footsteps there. I can't think of any other decision I've made that had such a profound and empowering effect on my life.Comment
"What you get out of the program really depends on your own place in life and what you want out of it."
- Thomas Berry
"The bitmaker program provides opportunities and supports learning but the student needs to committee time, energy and absolute focus."
- Ryan Racioppo
"Bitmaker is the best way to motivate and accelerate your desire to learn to code, and should be viewed as such rather than a free ride to a dream job"
- Vivien S.
I'm surprised by the reviews below. My experience with GA has been extremely positive. I took the back-end web development class (BEWD). My instructor was Gil and my TA was Justin, both were incredibly helpful inside and outside of class. I really bonded... Read More
