"Incredible, whirlwind experience of fast-paced learning within an inspiring, inclusive environment."

The Grace Hopper program has been absolutely one of the most unique learning environments I've been in. It is fast-paced, and they expect you to work hard. The first six weeks were FULL of lectures and it was a bit of information overload. But the remainder... Read More

"One of the best experiences I've ever had"

Why I LOVED GHA - I made some amazing friendships in my cohort. Since graduating, I've hung out at least one of my classmates every week, and we have monthly get togethers where most of our cohort shows up. They're the most amazing group of women. I love... Read More

The curriculum - The GHA program is definitely the best educational experience I've ever had. I have many friends in tech recruiting who recognize GHA and want to hire grads from this program. It's one of the reasons I chose GHA. This bootcamp knows the skills that are growing in demand and that's what they teach you. One thing I wish I personally did was prep more before I joined, even before Foundations, because I always felt like I was playing catch up at every point. I loved my instructors, they are so knowledgeable and really want you to succeed. If anyone senses you're struggling they will do everything they can to help you understand the material better. By the end, I completed three projects that I can show to employers, and worked in agile methodology so I have something to talk about during interviews. Before this program, I would never have imagined being able to make any of these projects, but I did! And it was a good time too.

Something they can improve on - interview prep. I'm on the fence about saying this, since the job search is always a crapshoot, but I really wished this program took interview prep more seriously. We were taught the basic approach to white boarding, practiced hard questions 2 times a week in senior phase without much context, and had a 30 min mock technical before hiring day which is like 1/50th of how much time you should actually practice. My personal interview prep took place the weeks after graduation, at real interviews and through supplemental online interview prep courses. I received 2 job offers through hiring day though so I can't totally complain, but there were definitely some great opportunities I missed due to my lack of preparation.

"Improved my confidence"

I had some computer science background from school and had just graduated, but there was a 2 year gap between my last front-end engineering internship, so it was hard to talk about an experience from so long ago, without more recent work experience or... Read More

Although, I wasn't really challenged given my background, I really appreciated the workshops and the lectures on the technologies I'd never used before, or dabbled with in the past, because I picked up on it very quickly. I took a quiz on PluralSight, and because of the curriculum, we were at the start of the "Expert" level for React.

I also liked their focus on having us understand what types of problems the technologies we were taught, were solving. We had amazing teachers, and I was lucky to be part of a supportive, and amazing cohort!

If you have a similar background, but want to be taken more seriously as a Full-stack Engineer, I recommend this program.

Finally, I got a lot of feedback on my resume, LinkedIn profile, and my responses to behavioral questions. These were all things I had trouble with on my own. In the alumni slack channel, everyone is so ready to help each other and give input. We set up a community where we could ask each other anything. Such as input on an email to a recruiter, or peoples' favorite resources for studying algorithms. It's a great and supportive community. It improved my confidence as a candidate because I was more prepared.

"Incredibly Supportive Environment"

"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."

"Wildly challenging, infinitely rewarding, opportunity of a lifetime"

I can't begin to express the mountain of gratitude I have for the Grace Hopper Program at Fullstack Academy. I was supported, coached and mentored by not only some of the best instructors I've ever had in my life, but my classmates as well. I was lucky... Read More

The instructors were top-notch, and their boundless enthusiasm for the material was always so infectious. I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that these are the best teachers I've EVER had. They deserve a world of thanks and appreciation for everything that they do. The curriculum is constantly kept up-to-date with the most relevant frameworks in the web-dev community, and it really gave me an edge in my job search.

The Program Lead: being able to mentally and emotionally support us through one of the most trying experiences in our lives is no small feat. She kept us grounded, and reminded us constantly that our mental/emotional well-being was just as important to our success as studying hard. She's to thank for keeping us all sane.

Last, but not least, the Career Services team. I came into the Grace Hopper program with a Humanities background and a nervous assumption that my soft skills were nowhere near as valuable as what I could learn in this Immersive. They not only assured me that my soft skills and employment history would be an asset, but they taught me how to best sell myself to employers in *light* of this experience. They were quick to respond to every question/concern I had, and persistent in their fight to make me a successful, highly marketable Software Engineer.

It would be remiss of me if I didn't mention how much work and energy you will be required to expend to succeed in this program. You will be eating, breathing and sleeping code for the duration of this course. You will get back every ounce of effort that you put into it. Be sure to set this time aside for yourself to devote solely to the program. I've never worked harder in my life, but I'd do it all again in a heartbeat.
