I've already gotten so much out of this program, and I'm very much indebted to what, in my honest view, comes across as a genuine concern and enthusiasm for coding and Firehose students' success. I encourage anyone who is interested and believes a remote program is the right fit for them to give Firehose a chance.
I actually had to cut the course short because I got a job offer at a financial technology start-up almost two months before the course finished. [Firehose] may be one of the few bootcamps that actually has an advanced track (Angular, React, SQL, APIs, to name a few) that helps you continue learning on your own.

Through The Firehose Project, my passion for coding transformed from an initial spark into a wild fire. Looking back, I never would have thought that I [would] learn as much as I did within just a couple of month[s].
Developer at Tau Solutions
The lessons are much better written than anything else I have used to learn programming. They guide you on how to build the projects while also explaining how everything works. At this point in the program I really feel like I am getting my money's worth so a big THANK YOU to the Firehose Team for putting me on the right track.
Software Apprentice at Gaslight
The best part of the bootcamp is that they teach you [to build] not just a website but a web application, and critical thinking. My goal [was] to land a position and after hard work I finally did. I honestly give credit to Firehose, and the push that this community gave to me.

What drew me to the Firehose Project was the emphasis on algorithms and data structures, which is something that I needed to be exposed to if I expected to make it through a technical interview.

The big difference at Firehose is the personal touch. I recommend the program to everyone. I mean, nothing is perfect, but I give you a 9.999.

You have a forum for questions, a Slack channel full of awesome students, alumni, mentors, and staff who want to get to know you and help you, and Google+ community. I never had to wait long for help.

I loved my experience with the Firehose Project. The program delivers everything it boasts at a very affordable rate, but the community is what really makes it standout for me.

The best part about this program is that they prepare you not just for Ruby, but for other object-oriented programming languages.

To say I simply learned a marketable skill set would be to completely ignore the true gains from the program.
