    I just finished Thinkful’s Engineering Immersion full-time program. I went from minimal/no programming experience to building full-stack (frontend, backend, database) in less than 6 months. It was equal parts exciting, difficult, rewarding, and exhausting.

    Not for the faint of heart, but a great way get into web development. I put in an average of 60~70 hrs of work per week.

    I would recommend studying a bit of JavaScript and SQL on FreeCodeCamp to give yourself a bit more time to digest the material.

    Note: My experience was with Thinkful’s Engineering Immersion program. There are several tracks within Thinkful, and each is structured slightly differently.

    Deciding to join a boot camp is a very nerve-wracking decision. For me, it was a total career change, so I wanted to minimize my risk as much as possible. I decided to go with Thinkful after seeing that they regularly post their job placement rates online and that they have a job placement guarantee.

    The actual program ended up being extremely challenging. I put in anywhere from 40-70 hours a week, depending on that week’s content. The material is challenging, but the pace felt spot on for what I wanted to get out of it. During the program I always felt pushed, a little overwhelmed at times. As a result, I left the program feeling like my skills were good enough to not only land a job, but to be comfortable in a new role.

    For the Engineering Immersion program you’ll meet with an instructor twice a day to go over the day’s material and check in on everyone’s progress. Then, you’ll pair program with another student until the end of the day. There is always support from the instructors and from mentors. On a typical day, we could have someone helping us within 5-10 minutes if we really got stuck on a tricky concept. Having that support meant that I never felt like I was wasting my time. Twice a week you’ll meet with your mentor to go over anything that you feel like you need help with. Finally, after the course is complete, you’ll be assigned a career coach to help you navigate finding that first job. For me, landing that first gig took just under two months from graduation.

    Thinkful is a challenging, rigorous program. If you’re looking to skate through with minimal effort and start applying to jobs, this probably isn’t the program for you. If you’re looking to build solid foundational skills and put in the time to learn, then Thinkful has the right resources to help you succed.

    It’s a very well curated program in data science.

    Pros:
    – Well-rounded curriculum.
    – Deep discussions of topics are available.
    – Very active online community

    Cons:
    – The local community could be more organized and activated.
    – More structure around the capstone projects would be useful
    – More active mentor supervision is needed.

    I am really enjoying working through the Thinkful curriculum, and the support of my Thinkful mentor and the community has really helped me through the process. I am currently a part of the Full Stack Flex program and one thing I really appreciate about this program is the flexibility to be able to get the work done outside of working my day job. The curriculum provides a lot of helpful reading, which I can sometimes do on-the-go, and the way the projects and assignments are structured is super engaging. They have elevated the program even more to include more online community among students as well as some local meet-ups and networking events.

    I’m just beginning to finish up my Fundamentals Modules for the Product design Track on Thinkful and so far I’m super impressed. I left my full full time job to pursue this and it’s hand down the best investment I’ve made in myself to date. The curriculum is super thorough (which is super helpful to someone with no experience in the field such as myself), and the feedback from the graders is always helpful (unless you pass right away, in which they usually say something that can be summed up in a “job well done”). My mentor is great, and is an awesome match personality wise. Having the two 45 minute one on one sessions each week is a huge perk. I don’t see how anyone could do this well with out them. If you’re hesitant and reading reviews to help make a decision, I say take the jump!

    I am a couple of months into Thinkful’s full-stack flex program, and I could not be happier! For me, the most important thing has been my sessions with my mentor. Having one on one time with a seasoned developer is absolutely priceless. The program managers are amazing, they are there to cheer you on and be there for anything you might need. Then, there is the Thinkful Slack community, just open lines of communication and students, alum and support staff helping each other out non-stop. It is clear from day one that Thinkful wants you to succeed and will be there with you every step of the way. This is a top-notch program, and I would recommend it to anyone!

    It has been a really good and challenging experience!

    -Pros –
    It will provide you with good and updated material to get your skills sharp on the language that they are teaching you.
    It is fast paced, it will make time fly and you will be learning a lot really fast.
    It will challenge yourself as a professional, and you will understand the meaning of “detail oriented’.

    -Cons-
    – Why didn’t I start this program earlier? – I ask myself this question almost everyday.

    It may seem overwhelming at the beginning but trust me they will provide you with the tools for your success. Understand that this boot camp is what its name means, it will require of your time to sit down and put the hours in. I currently have a full time job, my afternoons and evenings I have to dedicate to the program in order to stay on meeting my dates.
