    I actually found GA through this website earlier this year while deciding which bootcamp to attend. My background is from the networking side of tech (3 fortune 500 companies & 2 silicon valley e-com companies) and I’ve dabbled in software development (php) for a couple years. I went through the reviews and after contacting about 6 other schools (UC Berkeley, Wynncode, LeWagon, Hack Reactor, Boise Code Works, and Skill Distillery) I picked General Assembly.

    My honest review is the instructors are passionate about coding and can teach anyone the fundamentals of Full Stack Development. People in my class ranged from college students to the restaurant industry. Everyone was dedicated to learning and put in the hours to learn various languages and frameworks over 12 weeks. Like anything else in life, you’ll get out what you put into it. I came during class hours, after class hours, and on the weekends as well. I knew literally nothing about Javascript 3 months ago and now I can write full CRUD applications in React, Express, and vanilla JS. There were always instructors available to help and many of them stayed to help students when they were “off the clock”.

    Overall, if you’re looking for a coding bootcamp you will not be disappointed with GA.

    The 1-week course on Product Management was an excellent opportunity to learn new skills and exchange experiences with senior people who are already on this field. The learning flow and dynamics, combining theory and practice, was really helpful to absorb and retain knowledge.

    I found the GA UX Research & Design PT Course very enjoyable. I learned a lot and I feel that the curriculum gave me a solid understanding of the UX Research & Design process from end to end. Marcella was a great teacher and made all of the concepts understandable and applicable to where we all were in our professional careers. She was always available for extra help and advice which I really appreciated. It was a lot of work and in my opinion required more of a time commitment than the course syllabus suggested. Because it is a PT class it moved very quickly which caused me to get behind a few times throughout the course. I also found the curriculum to be a bit disjointed and unorganized. This is primarily because the online pre and home work did not seem to match up with the 2 day a week in class schedule. There were a few times I had to go back and review because sections were out of order. Overall, it is a good course that would definitely be 5 stars with some fine tuning.

    I made the switch to product design after contemplating the career move for a couple years. I was nervous about making a change, and put it off until I exhausted all other options. I completed the full-time UX design immersive course because I wanted to get more formal training and experience in the field, in a short time frame.

    Pros: GA stood out to me because of the timeframe (only 10 weeks!) and career coaching (which is amazing). Having an in-person experience was important to me because UX design is so collaborative, you’re working with tons of people and different teams, so an added bonus was the diversity of our class and learning how to work with a lot of different people. I think the class was super practical and hands-on, we started doing real UX work day 2. The main instructor was amazing, I don’t think I would have had as much success if she wasn’t the instructor.

    Cons: I would have liked more focus on the engineering collaboration with design, since handing off and working with engineers is such a huge component of a UX or Product Designer’s day-to-day. I think we did a pretty good job covering the basics and most important methods and tools, but in the short time frame we didn’t get to develop a super large toolbox.

    I took the Part Time Data Science course in DC from 6:30 to 9:30 on Mondays and Wednesdays. I had very little data science background prior to this course and was extremely pleased with how it turned out. I was exposed to a wide breadth of core data science topics and now have a solid base from which I can pursue further learning. I’m by no means an expert but that’s not the point of the course. I came in looking to improve my Python skills and learn the basics of machine learning, and that’s exactly what I did. I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to get a solid baseline in Data Science.

    The program was a great experience. Coming from a quantitative averse background, I was delighted by how much I learned. The tools are current and the instructors take great care in making sure you understand the lessons. My only pushback is the end certification you receive should be designed a little more thoughtfully to look like an actual certificate instead of a letter of completion.

    It has been an amazing 10 weeks.
    I strongly recommend to consider this as an option to change career if you are thinking about it.
    The daily support and coaching through the course is great, as much as the constant feedback received.
