I was also working in security at the time and felt the same experience of just being another number. One day I got in contact with a manager at Trello, and we had a minute conversation about possible careers in the tech industry, including programming.
We talked about how software development is a promising career, people are excelling, and it could be a lot of fun. How did you first learn about the coding bootcamp model? Did you consider other coding bootcamps? While I was in the process of joining the NYPD, I was working as a security guard for a building and one of the tenants in the building was a tech company called Trello.
One day a manager invited me up and told me about the many opportunities in programming. They gave me some recommendations and suggested some educational platforms to get me started.
One of these platforms was Flatiron School. The manager explained how it was easier to go through a bootcamp than to go back to college to get a traditional degree. I also knew a few people who had graduated from bootcamps and became developers and engineers. I followed their recommendation and also did a lot of research in order to get a better idea of what it would take to become a programmer.
Online worked perfectly for me, and it was self-paced. There was no deadline for when I needed to be finished — I could finish in a year or three months, and that was more appealing to me than anything else. I also applied to Startup Institute, but they canceled the course twice and I felt Flatiron School was more prepared.
When I researched other bootcamps, Flatiron School stood out amongst the other options. The price was out of my range, but then I realized they also had an online program which had a tuition model that worked for me. I was one of the first students to apply to the online program and the structure was perfect for what I was looking for. It allowed me to work but get the same education and experience as a full-time student.
When I first found out about Flatiron, they had just released a beta version of the online course and were accepting applications from students with little to no experience. As someone who graduated with a degree that was unrelated to technology or programming, that made me feel more comfortable. I felt like this could be something I could do and decided to do the free prep course before applying. I really enjoyed what I learned in the prep course and decided to go for the full program.
Since you kept working while doing Flatiron School online, how many hours a week were you able to study? I started the course in December and I completed it in September , while also working as a security officer. The amount of time spent studying varied based on my work schedule for the week.
Self-paced learning was awesome. I never felt overwhelmed with work and going to school. It was still challenging and took a lot of time, but it was fun. What was the online learning experience like at Flatiron School? How were the days structured and how did the instructors deliver the material? It was a great curriculum and I thought it was organized very well.
Flatiron School set it up in a way that allows people to feel good about themselves when they complete a lesson and mark off achievements in the curriculum. When I started it was fairly new so they were continually experimenting and evaluating student responses and feedback to figure out what was best for the students. There were times where I would struggle, but I knew I could contact other students or instructors for help through the Flatiron Slack channel. The way the curriculum was structured was very informative.
The Flatiron course provided enough information and there was more than enough help to get through every lab and every problem without needing to rely on extra sources. There was one project in particular that I was pretty excited about that I put a lot of time into — it was a baseball app. I play baseball and the website we use sucks, so I wanted to create something that we could use in the future.
It tracked tracks, schedules, and rosters. I used Ruby for the back end and Angular for the front end. How did Flatiron School prepare you for job hunting? What advice do you have for other online bootcampers going through the job search? Flatiron School did a lot to help me with the job search.
They helped fix up my resume, change my Linkedin profile, build cover letters, create cold emails, prepare for technical interviews, and more. It was pretty intense so it was almost like there was no excuse to not get a job. For every company you apply to, reach out and send a cold email to a developer or hiring manager there. There are a lot of nice people out there who are willing to help fellow graduates.
Tell us about your job at CraneAI and how you found it! How long have you been there now? I went on a few interviews and got hired as an intern working in ReactJS for three months. I can't speak too much about what we currently do, but I can say we are an artificial intelligence AI company and the majority of my work has been around ReactJS. There were nights when some of us slept here in the office! CraneAI is a relatively new company and I was their second hire — we have about 12 developers on the team now.
Any advice for bootcamp students who are interns looking to get the promotion into a full-time role? Be willing to accept different challenges and projects. When you put in enough hours to work and have the willingness to want to grow, people are going to see that. Work hard and try not to get discouraged. Your team is there to get through problems together. I spent time outside of work learning new languages and getting familiar with new technologies so that during work it made it easier to transition and build new stuff.
What is it like being a new software developer joining a small startup team? How has CraneAI been helpful to your first employer after a bootcamp?
We spend a lot of time with each other outside of work and there are a lot of experienced engineers and role models from whom I get great advice. Even if I struggle, they put me into projects to help build my skills so that I can become comfortable enough to work on more intense, challenging projects.
This team, in particular, has a lot of young guys. Everyone is very supportive and we all get along. There are so many things to learn. Do you feel you took anything from your experience studying to be a police officer or working as a security officer that helped you in your journey of learning to code?
Yes, working as a police officer requires you to constantly be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to details. This helped me with programming as I was familiar with having to research and mentally force myself to write efficient code.
No, not at all. Making adjustments from going from back end to front end was one. What advice do you have for our readers who are making a career change through a coding bootcamp? There are so many opportunities out there, like programming, where you can put in a few months of effort to learn. There are many chances to excel and create a new career. Continue to push yourself and good things will happen. I am thankful for coding for giving me an opportunity to pursue something greater than myself.
It has given me a new career and the ability to continue to grow not only as a programmer but as a person. Read Flatiron School reviews on Course Report. One of the challenges that bootcamps face and have really taken head-on is building diverse classrooms.
October was a busy month for the coding bootcamp industry with news about growing pains in bootcamp outcomes, mergers, acquisitions, investments, a trend towards bootcamp B2B training, and diversity initiatives. Plus, we added 12 new schools from around the world to the Course Report school directory!

Need a rundown of everything that happened in the coding bootcamp industry this September?
This month, we kept up with the status of the bootcamp industry, learned about how bootcamps are thriving in smaller markets, and explored different ways to pay for bootcamp. Plus, we added 7 new schools from around the world to the Course Report school directory! Why do journalists and industry leaders think that two coding bootcamps are closing? Listen to our podcast or read the full August News Roundup below. Finding a tech job in San Francisco? Landing a tech job in Cincinnati, Ohio after learning to code online and switching careers from campus ministry?
Michael Casciato did just that with the help of Flatiron School Online, and shares his journey with us. Learn how Michael found success despite being new to online learning and why he chose an online bootcamp , how Flatiron School guided him through his job search in Cincinnati, and his advice for every future bootcamper. My background was drastically different before starting at Flatiron School. What motivated you to change career paths and do a coding bootcamp? While I loved working in ministry, I hit a point where it started to become repetitive and unchallenging.
I did some soul searching, and turned to another passion of mine — technology. I decided that a future as a software developer would be both an exciting challenge and the best career path for my growing family.
Campus Minister to Software Developer: Has your previous background as a campus minister been useful in your new job in tech? However, making a career switch amplifies the need and importance for such communication.
Did you research other coding bootcamps or did you have your heart set on Flatiron School? Yes, I did research other schools. I took part in a couple of other informational webinars prior to investigating Flatiron School. Why did you choose to learn online instead of attending an in-person bootcamp in Cincinnati?
Being able to learn online was a key factor for me in my research process. While there may have been some in-person opportunities in Cincinnati, none of them were with Flatiron School, nor were they as affordable. So online it was. Yes, learning online was daunting at first. I had never taken an online course before — all my previous education was face-to-face. And yes, it was a risk for me.
When I started Flatiron School, I was still working in my previous career. Thankfully my superiors were incredibly understanding, so they let me go down to part-time so that I could do Flatiron part-time. I learned at this pace for a few months, then went to full-time learning when my contract was up I was a month employee, off during the summer.
By the time I graduated, I was a student for 9 months — 3 part-time, and 6 full-time. There will most certainly be times when you get stumped to the point of wanting to throw your computer across the room. Fight that instinct, and use your better judgement — consult the Flatiron School community. No matter the difficulty of the question, an instructor or fellow student is always willing to lend a hand. This degree of attention was a lifesaver for me, and shows how much everyone at Flatiron cares about your success.
Even just having casual conversation with the community can give you a different perspective and will definitely reinforce your love for coding! How supported did you feel by instructors and other students at Flatiron School? I really felt valued not only as a student, but also as a person in general. Aside from the help with the coursework as I previously stated, the community at Flatiron School held regular weekly check-ins to see how we were overall — we could share highs, lows, or anything we wanted the community to know.
The major difference is the quality of the content. However, with Flatiron School, the quality of the curriculum is evident. In turn, you really have to put in some effort to match the curriculum. You have to do the work in order to move on and eventually be successful. But my career coach gave me some great networking advice and strategies which put my mind at ease.
Throughout Flatiron School, I had two mock interviews: Even though I had been through many interviews in the past, they were a great experience and gave me some useful feedback to better myself for actual interviews. My advice to bootcampers, whether in tech hub cities or not, is to network. Get yourself out there — attend meetups, schedule informal coffee meetings, go to conferences.
Tell us about your new job! What are you working on day-to-day? Is this what you expected when making a career change into tech? I help tackle issues with our app as they arise, and assist in adding new features, too.
My team is very willing to help, which is beyond encouraging for someone new to the field. Did you learn everything you needed to know for this job at Flatiron School or has there been a learning curve? In my case, the complexity of our Rails app is much higher than anything I had seen before, plus the use of EmberJS required some extra learning. So the short answer is yes — there has been an expected learning curve.
The rest is history! I try to check in with the community on Slack whenever I get the chance, either to say how things are going or offer help if I can.
What advice do you have for people making a career change through a coding bootcamp? Is it a risk? But, for me and likely for you, the reward is worth it! Oh, and good luck and happy coding! Need a summary of news about coding bootcamps from July ? Course Report has just what you need! In July, we read about the closure of two major coding bootcamps, we dived into a number of new industry reports, we heard some student success stories, we read about new investments in bootcamps, and we were excited to hear about more diversity initiatives.
Plus we round up all the new campuses and new coding bootcamps around the world. Dev Bootcamp changed thousands of lives , and built a great reputation with employers, so we are sad to see it go. Fortunately, there are still plenty of quality coding bootcamps in the cities where Dev Bootcamp operated. Here is a list of coding bootcamps with similar lengths, time commitments, and curriculums in the six cities where Dev Bootcamp had campuses: Missed any news about coding bootcamps from June ?
Course Report is here for you! In June, we heard John Oliver and Megyn Kelly talk about bootcamps, we read about new investments in bootcamps, a number of newspapers wrote about the impact bootcamps are having at a local level, and we were excited to hear about more diversity initiatives and scholarships.
So you want to land a job after coding bootcamp? But did you know that many coding bootcamps go one step further and offer a job guarantee? Need an overview of coding bootcamp news in May?
This month, we read about a number of insightful surveys about employers, programming languages, and learners. We read advice about choosing a bootcamp, learned about efforts to encourage women and veterans to learn to code, and heard about student experiences at bootcamp. Plus, we added a bunch of interesting new schools to the Course Report school directory! Later, I learned to program professionally using Visual Basic, ColdFusion, and Ruby, by selling apps to people and then figuring out how to code them!
How did you become aware of the bootcamp model? Did you need to be convinced of the effectiveness of this education style? I know a lot of people in the industry and have always been convinced that we needed to improve the effectiveness of education. What made you excited to work at Flatiron School in particular?
And why did you want to work in online education? I know people running many of the top bootcamps and have always been a huge fan of what Flatiron School Co-Founder Avi Flombaum and the team are doing. They really care about changing lives and continuing to innovate — from working with underserved groups to providing independently-audited job reports.
I also believe they have the perfect setup with a single physical campus for experimentation and a real investment in their online program.
I do that by hiring and managing a team of Section Leads, Program Mentors, and Technical Coaches who help the students with onboardings, live lectures, group check-ins, office hours, 1: And in what locations are they based?
What sort of teaching experience do you have? What is different about teaching at an online coding bootcamp compared with that prior experience? Before I joined Flatiron School, I already had a bunch of experience with both online and in-person education. For a number of years, I was also the only contract member of the GitHub, providing online and in-person Git and GitHub training to organizations around the world.
How do you teach concepts through the online platform? How does this compare to teaching students in-person at Flatiron School?
You get to be in a room all day, every day with people all looking to change their lives by learning to code. In addition to reading text and watching videos, they get to work on labs so they can learn to code by writing code. And instead of just coding in a browser, throughout the course, they get introduced gently to all of the tools that professional developers use — from the command line and text editors to Git and GitHub.
In addition, we have Technical Coaches available from 9am to 1am EST every day to help them when they get stuck and over 20 live lectures and office hour sessions every week where they can connect with and learn from the Section Leads and their peers. They also have the flexibility to go at their own pace and to live and work anywhere, rather than having to quit their jobs and move to NYC. The biggest issue is getting feedback from students and helping them to keep coding when life gets in the way.
As such, we are working on a number of accountability programs to make it easier for students to stay on track. We have both staff and student Slack channels and typically use some combination of Zoom, Screenhero, Slack and Google Hangouts for video chats and screen sharing.
We already have a great platform our Learn. We are continually launching new experiments to see how best we can help students to fit their studies in with their lives. Many of our students are already succeeding, graduating quickly, and getting great junior developer positions.
We also continue to add new optional curriculum and live lectures on topics like algorithms and Test Driven Development so the students are ready to ace technical interviews and work successfully on high performing agile teams at the best companies.
In general, how are you involved in iterating on the online bootcamp curriculum? As a team, we spend a lot of time talking to students and thinking about experiments we can run to help them to succeed even more quickly.
We have a whole separate curriculum team, so the instructional team does provide feedback on the content students are struggling with, but the curriculum team is actually responsible for improving the content. Is there a certain type of student who does well in the class? The ideal student really wants to learn to code, can find at least 20 hours a week to work on the program and is open to using tools like Slack and Zoom to connect with other students and instructors for encouragement and support.
You can read about how Kailee , Gabe , Shana , and Savannah reinvented their careers in very different ways on the Flatiron blog. We have a whole separate team of career coaches who are responsible for helping our students to find and land great jobs — though I do have a lot to share about how to effectively build a career in tech. The goal for the program is to give someone the skills to get a great job as a junior developer.
For our readers who are beginners, what online resources do you recommend for aspiring bootcampers? We know that the majority of graduates are finding jobs after coding bootcamp, but what happens in their careers two years down the line?
Flatiron School recently surveyed more than alumni who graduated 1 to 4 years ago to find out how their careers have progressed. We discussed these changes with VP of Education Joe Burgess, to better understand what these changes mean for students. A longer, more flexible modular curriculum, regular student assessments, and greater focus on computer science and technical concentrations.
Honestly, four years ago when we started Flatiron School, we decided on 12 weeks and it worked well for our curriculum. Over the past four years, we've iterated and tried to squeeze more and more out of those 12 weeks. The Flatiron developers have been increasing the caliber of junior engineers.
In our opinion, 12 weeks just isn't long enough to be able to create incredibly elite, high-quality junior engineers. Of course, we know that moving from 12 to 15 weeks is not a small consideration, but I think it's the right balance of time, depth, and breadth for our NYC program. Our Career Services team has been placing students for four years now, and we know what moves the needle— having a concentration in a particular topic is one of those things.
The additional time also allows us to add a Product Series, so we can help students become well-rounded product engineers that understand there's more to being an amazing engineer than just slinging code. You have to understand how businesses work, how to solve problems, how to conduct user research, and how to work in a team, etc.
As we continue to talk to employers and to our alums who are thinking about their entire careers— their second, third, or fourth jobs— our alumni always say that they really wish they had gotten more Computer Science education, so we're building that into the 15 weeks as well. Do you think that longer class time is a trend that we're going to see in coding bootcamps?
I would hope so. I think many week bootcamps will probably be making a move to a longer format. We believe that the return on investment of three extra weeks will be seen in better jobs and faster placement.
This is really exciting. Prospective students can take a closer look at these topics in our syllabus. At the end of every module, students will get two chances at an assessment to figure out how well they know the material before moving onto more material.
Right now, Flatiron does not do regular assessments, and that can make it somewhat tough for students to know where they are in the curriculum. If they still struggle with the assessment, then we let them repeat the full module at no extra cost. Assessments give us some flexibility as educators to tailor the course for every student where we weren't able to do before.
It just felt fair. Yeah, that is a big difference. Right now, we graduate nearly everyone and give extra help to people who need it, but we're not set up to really help people who end up coming in with a bit less experience.
So instead of waiting 12 weeks before having a conversation with someone that says, "Hey, you're going to need to buckle down if you want to succeed," we're going to start having those conversations two weeks into your class.
If a student fails an assessment, repeats the module, and fails it again, then the truth is that we've done everything we can do given the accelerated nature of the program. I also hope that students can also use this as time to understand their priorities and their passion for coding. That being said, the student will get some refund, or have the option to join our online program, which is self-paced.
The self-paced nature of the online course allows less experienced students to take their time on difficult topics. Could you give us an example of the technical concentrations that a Flatiron student can choose to focus on in the final module?
We noticed that we had a student who got really jazzed about a particular topic, and when those students got hired, their employers would always mention that they loved that the student was obsessed with NoSQL or Mongo or whatever. Technical Concentrations will be more student-driven. At the very beginning of the course, we're very prescriptive— we do everything with you. As the course goes on, you gradually become more self-sufficient. There will be an assessment, which will effectively be a mock technical interview.
The max class size is We went from 32 to 20 students, which means again that every single person that we admit has an amazing experience. For 20 students, we have two Junior Instructors and a Lead Instructor, so it's a really good student to teacher ratio. They know all the labs as a student and now as a teacher.
There are students who are constantly asking intelligent questions in class, and also naturally gravitating towards helping the people around them. They'd seek out opportunities to teach, and it felt silly for us not to hire those graduates as Junior Instructors. The goal of adding computer science to the curriculum is twofold.
Secondly, knowing computer science concepts helps with technical interviews. After talking to engineers at Facebook, Google, IBM, and all of our hiring partners about what they use day-to-day in their job, and what they look for in candidates, we came up with the CS curriculum. Students should expect to learn data structures like linked lists, trees, graphs, and hashes.
For the first few cohorts, computer science is taught on Saturdays. Our goal is to weave it into the curriculum, as well as offer extra work on Saturdays. There was no specific catalyst; instead, we made the change because of conversations with employers and students. We're having conversations with our alums who have been out in the industry for three years and the alums that are now interviewing.
We had enough data and the industry had matured in a rather serious way— so we knew it was time. We spent months talking to every department at Flatiron, employers, and prospective students to put together this plan.
These changes are what the market requires from a well-rounded hire and software engineer, and we know that we can provide that with these changes. We found out the three most in-demand programming languages, we read about how coding could be the new blue collar job, and looked at how new schools are tweaking the bootcamp model to fit their communities.
Plus, we hear about a cool app for NBA fans built by coding bootcamp graduates! Due to the global rise of smartphones and tablets, mobile apps can be the go-to source for information, entertainment, productivity, e-commerce, and more.
By , global mobile app store downloads will reach With the rise of mobile applications on the market, the demand for mobile software developers continues to grow. We thought it was only right to give you a breakdown of what it really takes to be a mobile applications developer. From educational requirements to general stats on the profession to the top mobile coding bootcamps around the world— read below for our Ultimate Guide to Mobile Development Bootcamps.
In , Flatiron School was the first coding bootcamp to release an Outcomes Report. Why did Flatiron School feel that reporting student outcomes early on was an important responsibility? By the end of , there was a lot of attention on the bootcamps that were popping up. A lot of those schools were amazing, but some were clearly being less than genuine with the ways they claimed outcomes. That's a really shady marketing tactic. We saw what was happening with for-profit universities, which started with great intentions colleges were wasting tons of money and putting students into debt; for-profit colleges thought they could do a better job.
For-profit universities started growing really fast without much regard for quality, and the bad players basically ended up defining the entire industry. What drove us to release audited reporting was that we saw what was happening with for-profit universities, and we wanted to preempt that. Our industry was growing super fast, and there was no way for students to judge between school outcomes. We want to send the industry in a different direction than that of for-profit universities.
So we released the first ever audited outcomes report for our NYC campus in We then created the NESTA standards with a group of other bootcamps and the White House so that students could actually see which schools are willing to stand behind their marketing claims.
We invest a ton in career services and coaching, and so we work very closely with our students. When they get jobs, we have all of that data. Our in-person students are all attending Flatiron School in New York, but online students are spread out.
In New York, the average salary for online grads is closer to our in-person average. In San Francisco, the average salary is what you might expect there. In North Dakota, it's lower.
One thing that was inspiring to me about the online Outcomes Report is seeing the average tuition paid by graduates. So many online bootcamps are just online versions of their in-person courses, but because we built Learn.
What numbers were you most surprised by, negatively or positively, when you actually looked at the success of the online students? I was surprised that the salary was as high as it was. I was blown away by the fact that demand for talent is still high enough that employers are willing to pay that much for junior developer across the country. Why the difference there? Since we did that research, we've invested a lot more in creating more opportunities for women, including our Women Take Tech initiative, which we launched in partnership with Birchbox, and our Kode with Klossy scholarship with Karlie Kloss.
The response so far has been pretty inspiring and today those numbers are a lot more encouraging. The way to read this report is to first look at the 74 people who have graduated at the time of the report; then, of those people, 39 have finished a job search cycle many of the graduates at the time we did the report were only a few weeks out from graduation.
But so far, everyone who has committed themselves fully to that process has been hired. Different schools decide to collect information from students in different ways scanning LinkedIn for job titles, collecting job offer letters, etc.
This is actually a huge differentiator and deserves to be discussed. We carefully collect comprehensive job data from our students, then we send our auditors a spreadsheet that has all the pertinent data: Think about that versus a report that only relies on a survey of students.
Is there a similar agency for online schools? Even though we work with regulatory agencies for the in-person program, there are still no outcomes reporting standards from those state agencies. The reality is that online education is moving faster than regulation can catch up with.
So there aren't really strict standards and regulations. We let our lawyers make sure we're doing everything we need to do. The larger the industry gets, the bigger the responsibility. Flatiron School was also the first to offer an online job guarantee. We spent six months really analyzing our program, designing commitments for both our students and our career services team and we worked so hard to get to a place where we were comfortable offering a guarantee.

That's scary to me because there's no way they had time to prepare the way we did in order to actually stand behind the guarantee. The online job report was fueled by the same idea: Is there any chance that Flatiron School will work with other schools on common reporting methodologies like with Skills Fund, etc.?
We're always open to it. Since those standards have been designed, the conversations I tend to hear about new methodologies for standards are always less strict. And you have to ask yourself why. The questions are really, really simple. We've also had some conversations with schools that want to make that standard even higher, which is interesting.
