Graduated 3 monthss ago
I feel like this is the most important thing, so I am putting it at the top. I got a job as a React.JS Developer only 4 weeks after graduation. After I graduated from college I quickly realized I hated working in my field. I had no idea what to do from there. Going back to school would be expensive and time consuming. I wanted to be able to make a jump quickly instead of starting from square one all over again. After deciding on a career in web development I began to look at bootcamps. Most were cost prohibitive, and required me to uproot myself to attend. When I saw Lambda School it checked all my boxes. I could afford it thanks to the income sharing agreement, and I wouldn’t have to move. Lambda School is hard. You put a lot of time in, and have a ton of information thrown at you. The analogy I have heard several people say is that it’s like drinking from a firehose. With that being said the teachers are great. They do a fantastic job breaking down difficult concepts. With all the lectures being live if you do have a question you can ask and get it answered in real time, which is something I really liked compared to pre-recorded videos. Lambda School was the best decision I ever made for my future. It went so well for me that my wife is following in my footsteps and applying to be a full time student as well.
Pros
The school is very receptive to student feedback. If they roll something out and the students say hey this isn’t working they don’t keep trying to fit that square peg into a round hole. Your voice actually gets heard, which was weird for me coming from a traditional college background where that is anything but the case.
Cons
Is Lambda School perfect? Of course not. No school is. No school ever will be. If you are on the East Coast your hours kind of suck. 11AM-8PM.
Very Good!

Easy interview

I learned about Lambda School, while browsing /r/learnprogramming. Like a normal person, it sounded way too good to be true... What was an ISA? How could Lambda afford to teach people before taking money? I was too familiar with the current education system, where students are overwhelmed, but forced to take out loans, so obviously Lambda's system sounded too good to be true. However, I saw that there was a free intro course, so I decided to take it to see what Lambda was all about. Long story short, I was accepted to Lambda School and was convinced with the curriculum after taking the introductory "bootcamp." Lambda taught me to become a software engineer, not just someone who knows how to use a particular technology, but someone who can take those concepts and apply it to any other technologies.
Pros
Lambda taught me a lot of various topics, but most importantly, Lambda taught me to be a lifetime learner.
Cons
Lambda works, but to my own credit, I put in a lot of personal time outside of Lambda to be where I am today.
