Doug Leinen I have mostly good things to say about General Assembly with the caveat that you have to know what you are getting into before you know you will benefit from the course. Which can be difficult to do if you don't know what you don't know. As you'd expect from a 3 month course teaching complicated subjects like Single Page Applications and Computer Science topics, it moves at an extremely fast pace. And if you don't have a passion to keep up, you likely won't keep up and the course probably isn't for you. If you get excited when you refresh the server and the code you didn't know would work or not looks amazing, then this course will definitely fill in gaps quickly. The instructors were all helpful. Each of them in their own way and certain students seemed to gravitate towards one type of instruction over another, but everyone was motivated to help me learn and get what I wanted from the program. The curriculum itself felt very flexible and like it was being updated frequently. As far as job support I don't have much to compare it against, but I've been happy so far.
