Before I came to HackerYou (HY), I did a quick search online and spoke to other schools, but HY was the only one that proactively set up a date to meet me. I was advised very honestly about where I was and what I could do. She made an impression on behalf of HY (over the other schools) which led me to sign up for the course that evening.
At part-time web development, my instructor and mentors were very patient and classes were held at a good pace. They pointed out best practices, accessibility requirements, and also added their own experiences to the touch. The projects were challenging enough to test your application and let me practice my skills, but we were also given enough time to not feel overly pressured. Feedback was always constructive and very supportive.
At web development immersive, the course in itself was very challenging and the learning curve naturally steep but the instructors, mentors, all HY staff and even students from past cohorts have been very patient, understanding, encouraging and supportive. There are activities (that tie into our growth as developers and/or give us some extra help in a specific area) throughout the week (and weeks) which is much needed at a time of high stress and when you sometimes do not give yourself a break! Similar to the part-time course, feedback was constructive and supportive. The job assistance portion is also very involved and they do not just close the doors after you are done with the course!
HY is big on keeping a respectful, inclusive and friendly space. Further, I had such a great learning experience at HY from the beginning of my journey up till now and would highly recommend HY over other tech learning centers that I had spoke to!
