General Assembly (London) - Software Engineering Immersive

General Assembly is one of the original forefathers in the coding bootcamp space (✊). Starting way back in 2011, GA began as a shared space in New York City to work on cool tech projects without formal teaching. As the space developed, they saw the gap in tech skills and became one of the forst locations to offer a taught curriculum.

Since then, GA has become one of the largest coding bootcamps around, with locations in 20+ cities and more than 35,000 alumni (❗). With a broader community than some of the other schools, they additionally teach product management, data science and User Experience design, making them one of the few schools to cover the full tech-stack. As a brand, they are also one of the best known making them a fine choice in the eyes of potential hiring companies (🎯).
