Life-changing education and door opener.

starstarstarstarstar
Pros
- A wealth of information and knowledge, in the course room and on the job hunt - Outcomes program, they won't guarantee you a job, but they do everything short of that and that is huge. Take their criticism with grace and humility, and learn how to not fit the mold of employers, but make yourself more marketable. They know what they're doing. Trust them! - Great facilities, great extracurricular events - Excellent alumni network and others who want to help you succeed
Cons
- This is not for everyone. The people I saw succeed were thirsty, curious, and humble enough to ask for help and not get stuck on problems longer than necessary. Do not carry any preconceived notions in, learn, learn, and learn more and better yourself.
Amazing learning experience, great help online and in-person whenever you needed it. Be prepared to be challenged, and be prepared to work hard. Worki ...arrow

An intense and rewarding education

starstarstarstarstar
Pros
-My peers were all intelligent and driven people with different strengths, weaknesses and approaches to work. This made the program's extensive pair programming practices a huge benefit to my perspective. -The faculty were kind, approachable, smart, and encouraging. -The education was razor focused on what we needed to know to put together modern web apps--the latest JS frameworks, how to plan development, how to work with legacy code, et cetera. -The alum support to help me find a job did not feel like an afterthought. I had a coach to keep me accountable and help me make decisions in the searching process from improving my cover letters to negotiating offers. -There were plenty of opportunities for socialization and bonding despite being a remote program.
Cons
-The intensity of the program caused some burnout. I managed it alright but I saw a lot of stress get to my cohort, some of whom chose to back out from the program. -The sheer number of hours dedicated means you have to more or less put your life on hold for a few months. I respect this isn't feasible for just anyone. -Not a con per se but I did attend Hack Reactor before they for acquired by Galvanize, so I don't know one way or another how my experiences apply in the current Hack Reactor ecosystem.
Over a rigorous 13 week process, Hack Reactor took me from knowing the very basics of JavaScript to using agile processes to collaborate with a team a ...arrow

Amazing Bootcamp Experience! Very Satisfied!

starstarstarstarstar
Pros
Learning the algorithms, the way it works, and how to implement it really added a huge value, because I was able to walk into meetings with non-IT folks and explain data science fluently. DSD helped my data science become my language. DSD is very affordable and not as time consuming as the other, much longer bootcamps.
Cons
No career assistance, but I've also heard from other friends that career coaches aren't that useful because at the end of the day it really boils down to the individual. I also feel that the program was a little too short, one week was virtual and the other week was in person, I wish both weeks were in person.
I attended DSD in Summer 2017 right after my high school graduation, I had a pretty good fundamental understanding of data science and the R language. ...arrow

NuCamp Web Development Fundamentals Review

starstarstarstarstar
Pros
1. Affordable 2. Built for working professionals, who cannot take time off, for a full immersion course. 3. Friendly 4. Up to date, streamlined material.
Cons
1. I am unsure of the job support that NuCamp provides, but you cannot get a job with the Web Development Fundamentals course, anyways. I will find out more, at the end of the Full Stack course. I think there primary focus is networking, rather than job placement counselors. But the affordability and targeting to working professionals, override any potential cons.
So I have an Associates as a Software Developer and a separate 45 credit certificate as a Computer Support Specialist. I have been working in Hardware ...arrow

Galvanize Data Science Immersive Delivered for Me

starstarstarstarstar
Pros
Strong curriculum. Good structure. Solid community. Lots of support and supplementary resources. Take Python Week 0 even if you've been using Python for years. The career advice was spot on. The instructors were knowledgable and vested overall.
Cons
It ain't cheap, but you will make the money back within a few months of landing a job. Instructor turnover is higher than it should be, but that's more of a general problem that Galvanize has failed to solve rather than a problem particular to Galvanize. Frequent leadership changes at the company suggest a lack of clarity at the top. As of my experience, that wasn't trickling down to the curriculum level.
Note: the form on this website forced me to choose "Software Engineering Immersive", but I completed the Data Science Immersive. I made a pretty big ...arrow

Great Experience and excellent support

starstarstarstarstar
Pros
My instructor, Ryan Black, was excellent. He experience starting his own tech company, working at Facebook and now a startup as a product manager gave me confidence that I can learn from him. He was able to provide the class with excellent real life stories to drive home all the concepts we were learning. He was able to give us a peak into the various ways PMs apply what we were learning. Ryan has a very flexible teaching style, which allowed him to go in the direction that served the class best. He also gave great feedback on the work I did. He was very detailed yet concise in his feedback, which allowed me to create quality work when writing my PRD or thinking through my prototype and go-to-market strategy. My classmates were amazing. Outside of the instructor I was able to learn a ton from my classmates. Some of my classmates were PMs, engineers, designers, marketers and consultants, so I was able to learn from their perspective when thinking about improving a product and how to empathize with the customer when thinking about solving a problem.
Cons
The only thing I would change about the class is the allocation of topics. There is a lot of time spent at the end on resume building, interview prep and job search. I think that part can be cut shorter and more time spent learning more about product management.
I had a great experience learning at the Product School. They have a hands on approach where I was able to apply the concepts in real time. The Produ ...arrow
