Student Reviews

Student Reviews

What are students saying about our Online Web Developer Program?

“When I first started I was still working full-time, so I could do Flatiron School coursework around my working hours. Although you’re on your own, you never feel isolated—there are always instructors available, it’s easy to start study groups with fellow students, and there are live lectures you can join about three times a week.”

Danny Dawson

Full Stack Developer, PwC

My favorite part of Learn.co is the community. Even though it’s likely you will never meet other students in your cohort (though there are several meetups in big cities), everyone is extremely supportive of each other and no one feels like a stranger to me.”

---

Shana Moore

Software Engineer, Verve Mobile

“I was working full-time, so I knew that learning online was the best option for me, but I also wanted to make sure that I didn’t feel isolated or alone. I wanted classmates and peers, and I knew that having access to instructors would be incredibly important along the way. The way that the Learn.co platform is set up introduced me to fellow students, and gave me almost around-the-clock access to instructors whenever I needed help.”

---

Savannah Scott

Associate Software Engineer, Thuzio

“The best part of the program was the focus on using real world tools… I had a job interview question about Git, and I was able to say, ‘I have used so much GitHub. I have 500 repos’ – which are all the labs from Learn.co. Learn.co helps you build a very impressive GitHub profile. One of the interviewers said, ‘We can skip over the whole coding project and look at your GitHub. It looks great.’”
