Completing the part time full-stack program was one of the best things I could have done to prepare me for my new career in software engineering. I was very nervous about completing the program while teaching elementary school full time, but my instructors were really flexible to help make it work. I’m excited to start a new career knowing that I have the right skills!
Pros
Great instructors and mentors! Accommodating and compassionate for students with disabilities 1-on-1 instructor sessions Small cohort classes Career services Weekly job meets Weekly guest speakers I couldn’t make many of the day time...
Cons
I wish I could have taken the immersive course to fully dedicate my self to the program because it was so great!

When I started looking for a bootcamp, I thought no matter where I went I would be in, learn, and be out. I was wrong! Momentum has been the best experience and I could not have chosen a better bootcamp. I've been telling everyone I know to sign up! From the moment you start speaking with admissions, it is a human experience! You feel the care they have for your success. The program is fast-paced but if you are willing to put in the work- it pays off. With a recent graduation I have already...
Pros
The instructors knowledge and teaching, hands on support from peers and instructors, very effective job networking and support
Cons
The price is a little higher than others

I thought the amount of time spent learning valuable programming languages and frameworks was appropriate, the coursework was rigorous, yet extremely apt and applicable to entering the tech industry, the instructors were amazing, super knowledgable and supportive throughout the program, as were (and still are) Momentum's student experience manager, their director of career services, the rest of my amazing teammates, and the extensive, supportive alumni network. I thought the overall atmosphere...
Pros
There was never a second that I didn't feel supported during this arduous, yet rewarding journey. Everyone at Momentum, be it staff, fellow students, or alumni have your back and want you to succeed. The coursework itself is excellent, I...

I have a Bachelors degree, an associates degree and now a certificate from a bootcamp and I can tell you that Momentum was by far the best! When I started Momentum, I didn't even know how to use my Mac. Amy Gori, my first instructor, was the most patient, kind, and incredible teacher you could ask for. Not only did she slowly and methodically teach me how to code, but she was there as my support person. Not only do the instructors encourage you but there are many others who take care of your...
Pros
Instructor knowledge, support system, way the classes are laid out, languages they teach

To preface: Prior to the start of this program, I was a healthcare worker with minimal experience to code (I completed some of the modules on freecodecamp for js). I began Momentum at the same time the pandemic hit its first peak, so my cohort was one of the first to go 100% virtual. This was a rigorous full-time program that lasted 4 months. Considering it was the first time the company had to implement courses completely online, I would like to say they overall handled it well. The...
Pros
Momentum's projects were well designed and was structured enough that there was a minimum goal for everyone to reach, but was flexible enough that if you were to hit your goal early, there were other tasks to challenge yourself with. The...
Cons
A challenge was that this now virtual experience was new for everyone (students, instructors, and staff). And since many of us initially signed up for an in-person teaching structure, there occasionally were barriers when it came to...

Momentum has been an amazing experience and I think it wields a level of industry knowledge and experience that prepares its students very well for the real world of programming jobs--you'll learn to build a site with tools like HTML, CSS, Javascript (including the ReactJS framework), and Python (using the Django framework), and the career services have gone above and beyond my expectations every step of the way.
Pros
Momentum's curriculum will always keep you right outside your comfort zone. It's nothing you can't handle, and nothing you're not ready for, but it's very intensive and immerses you in working with code. You'll come out of the program with...
Cons
While Momentum teaches Python and Javascript, neither of these languages have static types or typical object models, meaning it can be hard moving to a more "traditional" in-demand object-oriented language like C++ or Java. Momentum also...

Coming into a new field and doing something I have never attempted before was pretty terrifying. Add in the pandemic turning an in person curriculum to a fully virtual one. The team at Momentum did an excellent job of pulling an audible into an immersive virtual course. The instructors did an amazing job, just teaching different languages, but providing support when needed. With an entirely virtual program, one could get lost in the lessons, but they were there to keep us moving in the...

I went int the boot camp with little to no experience. Throughout the camp I felt very uneasy about how I was progressing, but the instructors and my fellow classmates were always very supportive and by the time it came to create our final projects I had the skills I needed to succeed. I feel the class has prepared me to take this next step in my journey to becoming the best Full Stack Developer I can be
Pros
Friendly Environment Instructors willing to help as much as possible Great Curriculum
Cons
Sometimes we would spend a whole morning class period going over one person's homework problem. I believe things would have been much smoother if we were in person instead of zoom but because of COVID that was impossible

I am about to graduate from Momentum Learning and it has been an incredible experience! I decided at the last minute to rescind my offer to PA school and decided on a career shift into software developing. I am SO happy with that decision! The instructors at Momentum genuinely care about your individual success and growth as a developer. They are accessible and make themselves available to help. I feel prepared to start my new career and am so happy I made the decision to go to Momentum.
Pros
- incredible instructors who invest time and effort into your success/educational growth - great career service assistance/resources - intense curriculum
Cons
- there's a lot of unstructured time, which isn't the best method of teaching for everyone

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

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

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...
