"Highly recommended"

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.

"Pretty much changed my life."

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)!

Prior to GH, I was a recent university graduate with a background in... Read More

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.
