I went to the Grace Hopper last August and have learned a lot from the JS Immersive program (Web design, Web development and Database transaction handling, etc). Excellent courses, nice teammates and great teachers there help me a lot.

"Rewarding and supportive experience"

The Grace Hopper Program at Fullstack Academy in NYC helped me make a successful career transition into software development. Before starting at Grace Hopper in the fall of 2019, I was working in a different industry in a non-tech role and had been coding... Read More

One of the most valuable parts of my experience was joining a highly welcoming, collaborative, and empathetic community of women and non-binary software developers. My classmates not only challenged each other in the classroom, but also cheered each other on through the extremely fast-paced curriculum and into the job search process. I'm grateful to be part of such a strong community to navigate a new career in tech with.

Pros:
- Deferred tuition
- Challenging and rewarding curriculum
- Inclusive, supportive community
- Opportunity to attend the school's 'Launch Day' near graduation, which can provide networking and interview leads
- Career counselor available throughout the job search process

Cons:
- Large class size (almost 40 students) sometimes seemed to overstretch instructors, teaching assistants, and career counselors

"Overpriced"

Pros:
* You are in a class full of intellectuals via pre-selection (coding interviews/assessments to get in).
* An all women (and non-binary identifying) cohort means incredibly empathetic people as the people you pair-program with.

Cons:
* Instruction levels... Read More

""The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity..." - Amelia Earhart"

Prior to the Grace Hopper Program, I was in a position where my job has become stagnant and going to work was a drag. I had interests in coding but never thought it would be possible to become an engineer. I thought to myself, people go to school for... Read More

The actual Bootcamp was 17 weeks long and it flew by. I had many amazing instructors during my time at Grace Hopper. (Shout outs to, Geoff, Jess, Brian, Ben, and David.) Every single person I interacted with was supportive and brilliant. There were times during the program where it was very stressful and I had doubts about my ability to code. The material we were learning was extremely difficult and hard to grasp. But because of Fullstack's no asshole policy and supportive environment, we were able to pull through and developed quite the camaraderie. Not only were we taught how to code, but we were also taught how to continue to learn and grow our technical knowledge base.

Now that I have graduated from the program and on my way to my first engineering job, all I can say is, why didn't I make this jump sooner?

"Incredibly Rewarding Experience - Highly Recommend"

The Grace Hopper Program at Fullstack Academy changed my life. One month after I finished bootcamp, I found my dream job as a Full Stack Software Engineer. Corey and Geoff were the best instructors I could've asked for -- they made the rigorous curriculum... Read More

I was surprised at how quickly I was able to contribute once on the job, thanks to Grace Hopper/Fullstack! I added to the massive codebase of my company within the first two days of working there, and I am confident that I will be able to solve whatever problem is thrown at me. It is a testament to the strength of the curriculum that we are at the three-month mark since we graduated and most of my cohort has received at least one offer.

Not only did I become a competent software engineer after this program, I also have a strong network of fellow female engineers. I am so glad I chose Grace Hopper!
