"A frustrating but fun experience, proportioned depending on your needs"

Pros:

Barcelona: The location is beautiful and affordable. I enjoyed living there immensely, was able to meet a lot of locals, and lots of great people in general. It's also relatively inexpensive and very walkable.
Staff: People are really friendly, and... Read More

Cons:

Staff: Despite their friendliness, communication was a huge issue. Even before class started, I missed most of the Hangouts because I didn't realize the times were being posted to Slack. Emails were not returned in a timely manner before, during, and after my session. People were defensive when offered feedback. I was often told "So and so will contact you about your concern." and then silence.
Instructors: Two of our instructors were awful and it felt like they just wasted a week of our time which is a big deal when you are only studying for 6 weeks. We basically had to relearn everything we learned from our first JS teacher. They made up for the bad CSS class by bringing in a great instructor later on, but it meant we lost a day of working on our final project.
Curriculum: It was frequently commented by my colleagues that it felt like we were being experimented on too much and I agree with them. We alternated between JS and Ruby instruction and the context switching was very confusing. They started us off the bat with Ruby and OO which was completely overwhelming for most people our first week.
Visa sponsorship for non-EU: You will probably not be able to find someone to sponsor you for a visa. I wanted to stay and it seemed like it should be doable (I was one of the strongest students in the cohort), but even though there was some interest ultimately what I heard was it's way too hard to sponsor and very few companies are willing to do it. You are limited to large foreign companies and even then it can take 3 months.
Job Assistance: Good or bad depending on your needs. I'm going to move this out of the bullet, so read on below.
We lost internet for a few days and last a ton of class time as a result. They didn't have a contingency plan so we had already lost almost two days before they found us a temp new space. Internet was pretty consistently bad the whole time we were there.

Job Assistance:

They were great while I was still in Barcelona, but as soon as I returned back to the states they went silent. I had previously decided with the cofounder that we would work on Barcelona until I left and then switch to SF. After two weeks of silence (I pinged a couple people during that time), I sent another email and this time they apologized and said it was a new guy's responsibility.

I scheduled a Skype call with the new guy and I thought maybe things would improve. Well, he sent me a list of sites with job postings. And then the next week he sent me another email with one more site with a job posting. In the meantime I was adding the jobs I applied to on to a spreadsheet so they could see my progress.

I did know that they would have less of a network in the states, but the cofounders are well connected. So I knew that it would take more effort on my part. However, job placement is absolutely crucial for any startup bootcamp, and Ironhack is expanding in to Miami. To succeed in the more competitive bootcamp market in the US, you need to cultivate relationships with companies that are specifically interested and willing to hire bootcamp students.

My expectation was that they would reach out to companies and pitch Ironhack and their students– in other words be proactive. What actually happened was they checked my spreadsheet and if they knew someone there they put me in contact. Which is helpful and I don't want to discount that, except 2/3 of those contacts were for companies were I had already gotten myself an employee referral and since their contact wasn't in a position to hire me they couldn't really provide me any assistance. In my opinion this just isn't aggressive enough because if they can't hit a high placement % then they are doing good enough.

Ironhack's response is that they are working hard and this is what they told me I'd get, so if this meets your expectations you wil be fine. If not job placement is really important to you, you may want to look elsewhere.

Tl;dr: Can be good depending on your needs. They can help you get jobs in Barcelona if you are eligible to work there, but if you want a lot of help for a non-EU job search they are limited to providing contacts to companies you've applied to. So far from my cohort the only person placed through Ironhack was hired by Ironhack.

Summary:

It was a fun experience overall, and I don't regret it. I did learn a lot despite the hiccups. However, I can't help but feel like they could have done much better and the communication was consistently a huge issue. I felt frustrated by the time wasted because of bad or unprepared instructors and bad internet. I felt like they missed a lot of important topics such as code reviewing and interview prep. And job assistance didn't meet my expectations at all. So yeah, YMMV. Living in Barcelona though, that I can recommend with no hesitation.

"Great Learning Experience in a Beautiful Place"

I'm an American who attended the September 2014 Web Development cohort in Barcelona. I came to Ironhack with little-to-no programming background, though I had dabbled in web design/some front-end stuff in the past and had (unsuccessfully) tried to learn... Read More

Overall, it was a truly wonderful experience. I finished my cohort just a few days ago, and have received job offers and requests for interviews from many different companies around the world, which was my goal. I built my own (pretty great) app from scratch, which I would have never assumed I'd ever be able to do at the beginning of the bootcamp.

"Learn in two months what would otherwise take years!"

I can fully recommend IronHack for any of you wanting to learn real-world practical programming skills in short time span. I am a Norwegian student of Computer Science, and before IronHack, I really enjoyed programming. However, every time I intended... Read More

Everything else about the program exceeded my expectations. The instructors were all from leading companies and surprisingly good at communicating in a didactic manner. The course also gave you the opportunity to interact with the local entrepreneurial ecosystem. Throughout the boot camp, we had very interesting speakers come by to explain their products to us and to discuss any topics we would be interested in raising.

In conclusion, if you are thinking of attending IronHack, do not think twice. There is only one thing I regret about IronHack: not having applied earlier!

"El mejor bootcamp al que he asistido. Una experiencia inmejorable."

Asistí al primer bootcamp de desarrollo de iOS que han hecho los chicos de Ironhack y la verdad es que solo tengo buenas palabras para describirlo. Aprendí en solo 2 meses profundos conocimientos sobre Cocoa y Objetive-C tanto es así que tuve la oportunidad... Read More

Y no solo los conocimientos, hice muchísimos contactos y grandes amigos. Creo que uno de los puntos mas fuertes de Ironhack es que te hace formar parte de la comunidad de desarrollo existente. En nuestro caso, íbamos a reuniones de la NSCoders en Madrid y así conocimos a la mayoría de profesionales de desarrollo iOS. Gracias a Ironhack conocí a mucha gente, que aun ahora después de acabar el curso, sigo en contacto con ellos casi todos los días.

Por ultimo mencionar que a pesar de mi situación especial como estudiante universitario y que por lo tanto a la hora de buscar trabajo yo solo quería puestos de media jornada y que me respetaran el horario de la universidad, tuve varias ofertas y ahora mismo estoy trabajando desde casa a media jornada en una empresa con producto propio y en un equipo de desarrollo espectacular.

"Great experience, I highly recommend it"

Excellent product. Great experience. Worth every euro.

I´ve been involved in digital products for years (VP of product in 2 start ups) and felt like I needed technical knowledge to become a better professional and a better entrepreneur.

After the Ironhack... Read More

Ironhack excels in several ways:
i) Great teachers. There was consensus within alumni that 9 out of 10 teachers were simply outstanding.
ii) Great materials. Most of the alumni will be using materials from the Ironhack as a guide and as a repository of knowledge to come back to from time to time for review.
iii) Great student selection process. An adequate mix of backgrounds, including technical profiles, entrepreneurs and technology corporations engineers has created a rich environment which contributed to both a great leaning process and an unforgettable networking and bonding experience.

I met my main goal, which was to improve in all product related aspects of a digital product start up, from product ownership to pipeline planning or technical hires.

But most importantly, I now feel capable of building a digital product, a process which I am passionate about, challenging, addictive and enjoyable at the same time.
