"Best post-grad decision I've ever made"

I attended the Grace Hopper (GH) Program as a student, then became a teaching fellow for Remote Cohort #1, and still teach an occasional preparatory class when demand is high. Needless to say, GH has got me hooked!

If you want to learn to code, GH knows... Read More

The instructors are all top-notch, and they each have their own quirky teaching styles, which makes coming to class all day, every day fun and exciting. There's always coffee and cereal to fight off the afternoon coding lull or feed the I-just-rolled-out-of-bedders.

The career success team is out of this world and go above and beyond their job descriptions to help grads get exceptional jobs all over the country. They have placed GH grads at companies as bootcamp grad #1 (myself included!) and built up some pretty sweet networks along the way. Seriously, they're committed to getting you a job after graduation and have often given me advice and action plans way outside of work hours. I just finished my first month at my new job, and I think GH did a great job of preparing me for the professional software engineering world. I feel more comfortable with the daily engineering practices, startup life, and quick turnover of technologies than many of my peers -- who have traditional CS backgrounds -- seem to be.

The *immersive* part of the curriculum is no joke, but I never could have learned so much, built such strong lifelong friendships, or appreciated the sunshine so wholeheartedly in any other program! FS is certainly one of a kind, and I chose to attend because of stellar reviews like these!

I'm still early in the job search so this review is based mostly on the actual course. The best part about GH is the atmosphere - the fellow students, instructors and staff are extremely supportive, warm and encouraging. That makes a big difference, because... Read More

"A rare opportunity that any female-identifying/non-binary person should consider"

I highly recommend this bootcamp if you have the resources to be able to attend. I have background in art/tech but was always working on the business or administrative side when I decided to learn programming on my own. I'd always been in competitive... Read More

If I had to be critical about the Javascript curriculum specifically, it would be that Grace Hopper does share educational resources with Fullstack Academy and I find that the structure of the workshops doesn't always accommodate every skill level. In this sense there is a 'you get out of it what you put in' attitude embedded in the material rather than one that ensures a more conceptual understanding at a basic level. I think this can cause some individuals to fall behind at times. Compared to other bootcamps, this one only focuses on one language so depending on how deeply you want to learn a language this may or may not be the right curriculum for you. The course is great, however, if you want to be a strong Javascript focused, front end developer. Since graduating from the program and finding an awesome job, I have noticed that graduates from other bootcamps are significantly less skilled in the Javascript language.

As for job support, again the career success team is shared with Fullstack Academy so their attention can be spread thin at times. Still, I do think job support at Grace Hopper is top notch. You'll find many helpful peers who will happily help you practice interviewing in a safe space to ask questions. I wouldn't underestimate the confidence that the Grace Hopper community gives you during the job search which is of course the most dreaded part of the program. While the cohorts vary in terms of personality and diversity, the GH community at large is a good one. The alumni are incredibly insightful and candid. In addition, many students find jobs right away from the hiring day event that is organized by the career success team.

I come from a completely non-technical background. I studied social sciences in college and the last time I took a math class was sometime in high school. I always liked computers and logic, but never thought that software engineering could be for me.... Read More

"Solid Curriculum"

After accepting a software engineering role at a Silicon Valley tech giant, I'm happy to say that I'm extremely happy with my decision to attend Grace Hopper at Fullstack Academy (GH)!

In addition to gaining a job-relevant portfolio, GH also introduced me to the extremely welcoming community of GH and Fullstack Academy. Before, during, and after the program, I was able to network with alumni from both GH and Fullstack Academy, who provided me with awesome advice and also connected me with their network. With a job-relevant portfolio and skillset; insider tips; and a strong network, I was able to land my dream job at as an engineer at a great company.

If you're having second thoughs -- don't! GH has a solid curriculum AND a great alumni to prove it.
