Course Description

This course is the best way to create a real portfolio while getting started as an engineer. Working with a professional frontend developer you'll build interactive websites – including an online resume, a clone of Google's homepage and an interactive shopping list – using HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery. Don't know what those are? Don't worry, your mentor will teach you 1-on-1. You'll master these fundamentals with 1-on-1 guidance from your mentor who is a professional developer. Your mentor will be there to help you when you get stuck, motivate you to finish a challenging project, and keep you on track. You’ll graduate with a full portfolio and a fully-stacked GitHub profile. Even if you’ve literally never coded a single line you can take the course and become a beginner frontend developer.

It is 2016,  I just spent a month stepping thru the Thinkful Front-End Development course.  While my mentor was helpful and talented,  the course-work was disappointing.  "Think of reading a book with many pages missing from the story" .   You are left with a feeling of confusion as too much essential subject matter is not provided by Thinkful coursework regarding HTML and CSS.   While the mentor can fill-in some gaps,  you must go to other websites to complete your answers to your many questions.    For a price of $300 to $1500 per month,  the student deserves more robust course materials to properly leverage their time spent with their mentor.  Unfortunately skilled mentors will not makeup for the flawed course materials.

The best course for the front end that explains the concept of HTML, Javascript, etc. The explanation is simple and precise. Very good course for the front end.

The Thinkful front-end course helped me backfill and bring up-to-date my web development skills. I was worried I might not get much out of it since I already had some experience, but the course was very flexible in that regard. I was able to quickly complete the early curriculum and move on to the topics that were newer to me. I came out with a nice portfolio of projects which helped me move directly into consulting, which I have been doing for about two years now.

I enjoyed my time at Thinkful. I took the Frontend Web Development course because I wanted to freelance and be able to set my own hours. I found the course material to be well written and paced. The material was well thought out and was just hard enough to push you but not so much that you give up. My mentor was absolutely awesome. He works in the industry and helped me actually learn the material. I had tried self study in the past and I found myself giving up when I couldn't figure something out. With my mentor I was able to bring to questions to him and together we worked through the problem. Thinkful themselves is great. They are dedicated to their students and truly want you to succeed. I recommend Thinkful if you are looking for a well laid out course, excellent mentors and the ability to work at your own pace.
