Yale x Flatiron School Student Ambassadors

Drew Beckmen

Yale x Flatiron was the most transformational experience I have had at Yale. The Yale x Flatiron course made the educational experience collaborative, engaging, and fun! Despite being virtual, our cohort became incredibly close over the 10 weeks as we coded, debugged, and grew together. Flatiron understands how to deliver an online course without sacrificing community and collaboration. After finishing the course, I felt empowered by my newfound technical skills. During my gap semester this fall, I secured an internship that relied on the skills I developed at Flatiron School. I wholeheartedly recommend YxF to all students, regardless of programming background. The learning experience is unlike any other Yale course, and you will finish with skills that are applicable to every industry.

YSS’s version of the Flatiron Web Development Bootcamp has been one of the most fun and rewarding educational experiences I’ve had during my undergraduate career. I came in only knowing how to code from the perspective of a researcher, and this program provided me with the valuable opportunity to learn how to think like a developer in a supportive, friendly, and fun environment.

The program has a very ‘hands-on’ approach to learning, and you’ll be developing your first applications in no time while learning useful coding practices and techniques. Additionally, you’ll have the chance to cooperate with other students and to learn how to work well in a team of developers while building projects you’re passionate about.

At the end of the program, I left with a new-found passion for software development, a toolset powerful enough to allow me to design any web application I can imagine, a portfolio of original projects, and many fond memories. I can’t recommend this program highly enough!

Being a part of the Yale x Flatiron School Web Development Bootcamp was one of my best experiences as a student. The journey started with the 80-hour Pre-work, which seemed daunting at first but quickly became enjoyable and helpful in preparing me for the course. On the first day of class, I was surprised by how warm and welcoming the environment was. Despite being online, throughout the 10 weeks, I felt connected with the rest of the cohort. I learned so much more than I expected through the lectures and labs. The collaborative projects were really fun and it was great to see the final products after putting our learning to practice. The instructors were very understanding about the difficulties of studying online during a pandemic and they did a wonderful job providing help whenever it was needed. This course definitely made my summer unforgettable!
