The school was great, the staff collected the people well. The lessons always funny but very hard. Overall they gave ne a very good thinking method.
Pros
They give a practice lesson. And first they teach you how to learn in a practice oriented traiming.
Cons
Was very hard, becouse the mentors just give you some hint and not the solution itself. And had to learn day and night during the period.

Mentors are really helpful, if you are stuck, they will help you even over the mentortime. The class was mixed so our english skills improved a lot for the end of the course. We were able to appy for jobs even if the interview was in engish. They provided soft skill trainings so we can fit into the environment in our new job more easily.
Pros
-more technologies -soft skill trainings -preparation for interviews -teamwork
Cons
sometimes the pre-recorded videos were very very long.

I was trying to find a complex course that would teach me enough knowledge to become a junior developer and help me get a job in IT. Both of my conditions were fulfilled. This course is well structured, I have learned: - basics of object oriented programming - how to make a small web application in Java using spring boot and thymeleaf - how to figure out my own solutions and work more independently - working with git and github - how to work in a small team - develop larger strategy game in...
Pros
you dont need to know anything ahead of the course they will teach you everything from scratch, everyone is very nice and helpfull, topics are very well structured and complex, they help you get a new job after the course, they consider...

The idea behind the bootcamp is ingenious and with the right people it can really be something awesome. However this cannot be said about Green Fox Academy with all bad what is happening there... Don't take my words as bad review, not that at all, I loved time spent there, I learned a lot, I worked hard AF and I still think it was worth! I am certain I wouldn't be able to dive into programming without GFA – you study/work at least 9 hours every day for 3–4 months and you have paid tons of...
Pros
1. Mentors. Almost all of them are very experienced in their field and love what they do. They're very helpful and you can ask them any stupid question. 2. Classmates. You are nonstop with them, you struggle on the same, your aims are the...
Cons
JOB GUARANTEE. As I already mentioned, it's just joke. You are promised with interviews every week and with assurance offers will be perfect. Not gonna happen. Shitty offers, only monkey work. Max 40k CZK monthly (with no wage increase...

Course which rapidly boosts your IT skills.

I fully recommend this course. I would definitelly take it again, however, without the placement which did not match my expectations.
Pros
+ they know how to teach + they will give you everything if you want
Cons
- the offered jobs are not trully programming jobs, it is mostly about cooking according to copmany's cookbook

Great experience!

I never thought that I’ll be able to learn so much in such a short amount of time. The mentors were super helpful and with their guidance the majority of the materials were much easier to digest for ourselves. If I was stuck with the materials or had any issues about the course, there was always somebody who was able to help me. I got into a great community as well and made new bonds with other people!
Pros
The curriculum is well-designed. You can definitely learn the basics of the given stack following their course material. Also the class was really awesome since everybody struggled with the same material, we were able to help and push each...
Cons
The talent management team at the school is super helpful at the school, although sometimes we felt that it was a bit chaotic because all of a sudden they just shared way too much information about everything and sometimes the search for...

I learned full-stack web application development at a junior level. The course was divided up into 3 sections to build up our knowledge from zero. During the third module, we had to work in groups on a common project which was a great opportunity to see how programming would work in real life. They have also held soft skill training (e.g. giving feedback and presentation) and offered coaching should we struggle during the course. They were very personal and supportive during and after the...
Pros
As a part-time student, I was not stressed about the present or the future. I could finance the training securely, and I could take my sweet time afterward to find a job. Also, I didn't have to jam knowledge about a new topic into my brain...
Cons
It is a one year long course and one have to commit lot of their free time to it. It can be overwhelming sometimes next to a full-time job.

Green Fox is a Junior Developer Bootcamp in Budapest (and in Pragua). There is more field to learn. I graduated as an junior embedded sofware enginier. (C and C++ languages) You can choose other languages like Java or Javascript. The course was 6 months. The first section was a foundation time. (Basics of coding, algorythms, functions, classes etc.) During the second section, we learnes about a specified field. (I learnded microcontroller programming and C.) The last section (2 months) was the...
Pros
This is a nice community, a have a lot of friends from this course. There are very good tutors. The course is extraordinary intensive but very useful. The company is correct.
Cons
They had difficulties with the job support. (But don't forget, it was the beginning of the COVID crisis. They guaranteed job opportunities after the bootcamp but I hadn't interview. (I think this is not the fail of the company, we are...

Green Fox Hungary is rather focusing to quantity and not quality. They teach as many students as they can. They collect the not cheap fee for the bootcamp and the student get young and inexperienced mentors, weak free youtube tutorials. At the end against the almost 100% job guarantee you have to face that you have to find job for yourself.
Pros
Experience about scrums and how to learn with your teammates.
Cons
weak knowledge of the staff and mentors. bullshit almost 100% job guarantee.

To fully understand my review, there are some special conditions about my Bootcamp. It was pre-financed by one company, which had exclusivity over the employment after the Bootcamp. It was a part-time bootcamp, we had classes 3 days a week after working hours. Overall I am happy that I have attended to this bootcamp. It helped me a lot to understand the way of thinking a developer needs for this profession.
Pros
It gave me a generic knowledge of coding, development work. It is a good base to be able to learn new languages way faster in the future. The instructors were professional in their fields. The application process was long, but they...
Cons
As part-time it was a bit too intensive, most of the exercises had to be done at home after the class or at the weekends. Related to the previous one: not enough time to finish everything I wanted. I personally don't like speaking up in...

Although I enjoyed my time there, I also had prior programming experience (as a hobby) so I had little trouble with the tasks they gave us. For others, without any experience, I saw that they have struggled all the way through and even though they graduated, they were more lost than before they started the course. The main problem with all of this is that it all seems amazing when you are in the course, however as soon as you are thrown in front of the potential employers you immediately start...
Pros
+ Kind and dedicated staff + Includes projects at the end + Stipend is an option + Did not enforce payment while I wasn't employed
Cons
- Teaches bare minimum of most things, sadly a lot of companies want more knowledge - Promised employment and did not deliver - Was restricted from searching for a job myself for three months - I do not feel it was worth the price (4176€)

Who started Career Karma?

So Career Karma was started by Artur, Ruben and myself out of our own struggles career transitioning into Tech.

I say an incredible opportunity for others like me who were trying to learn how to code on their own but failing to complete their transition. Three years into us...

How do you successfully pass the technical interviews for Flatiron and Hack Reactor (Software Engineering and Cyber Analytics) ?

Created 1 year ago

Good question. They are very different so I would recommend doing prep courses for both to try it out. However, then decide which specialty you're most interested in and go for those technical interviews. In preparation, definitely complete the prep course. The next steps for you should be to ask the admissions officer about the type of questions that are going to be on the technical interviews. What resources do they recommend you review to get accepted? What they think will...
