The Bootcamp can be taken at two paces: Full Time or Flexible.
The Flexible Web Development Bootcamp is unique among bootcamps in that it achieves the same end goals while remaining compatible with students' normal job schedules. In the Full Time Web Development Bootcamp, Thinkful students spend all day learning for 17 weeks straight. At this level of immersion, students require constant support, and are surrounded by a team of instructors, TA's, 1-on-1 mentors, as well as their classmates.
In select cities, Thinkful leverages local networks to match students with mentors at top companies in their area. Currently, students in Raleigh and Atlanta can attend Thinkful-sponsored meetups and get an early beachhead into both cities' tech markets.
Thinkful provides scholarships to all self-identifying women and military veterans of $100 per month for Flexible Web Development Bootcamp students and $200 per month for Full Time Web Development students. The school provides these in collaboration with Girl Code It, MotherCoders, and Operation Code. The women's scholarship can be redeemed using this link and the veteran's scholarship can be redeemed here.

|Program: Full-time Web Development Bootcamp||Cities: Atlanta, Raleigh, Remote, Washington DC||Duration: 4 months||Cost: $14,000|
Thinkful’s Full Time Web Development Bootcamp shares the same in-depth, project based approach of the Flexible pace. The main difference is that the Full Time pace pushes students to become web developers in 17 weeks and requires over 40 hours of effort per week. The fully online program features constant support, as students interact with their classmates, instructors, and mentors. Each student has a dedicated mentor, who they meet with daily 1-on-1 for half an hour.
|Program: Flexible Data Science Bootcamp||Cities: Atlanta, Raleigh, Raleigh-Durham, Remote, Washington DC||Duration: 6 months||Cost: $1,500 per month, $500 prep course, prep course tuition is applied to bootcamp tuition upon acceptance.|
Thinkful's data science bootcamp is driven by 1-on-1 mentorship. Students learn the skills they need to get a job by working closely with a professional data scientist. That includes programming in Python, related Python packages for analysis, modeling, and machine learning like NumPy, SciPy, pandas, and scikit-learn; plus data visualization tools like matplotlib, seaborn, and Jupyter. Thinkful students get ahead with a mentor-personalized experience, customizing their learning path and focusing on the skills they need. Students meet with their mentor three times a week for an hour each session to learn best practices, receive constant feedback, and move quickly.

My experience with Thinkful has been top notch. The curriculum is laid out nicely and advances at a steady pace. My mentor has been wonderful in guiding me and aiding me in my learning. Another thing I love about Thinkful is that you have the entire community of students and mentors to go to for help.
I've been working for tech companies my whole life, but I was mostly performing Marketing & Sales tasks. Coding had my interest, but I wasn't sure that I could be good in it. I started going through free coding courses out of curiosity some time ago and felt that I had no needed push after studying syntax basics. The beginning is easy, but there was no way I would pass through 'the desert of despair' - the step when you start writing code yourself ..and see it's much more difficult than you would think while doing first steps. I googled for the best bootcamps and Thinkful quickly got on top of my list. I'm very happy I've started it! It was a bit easier in the beginning because I already knew the very basics (I recommend to study a bit before that so that you can spend time on more interesting task - coding). A huge plus of Thinkful is frequent online sessions with mentors. My mentor, Joshua, has endless patience and knows how to lead you through your struggle making you think and not giving direct answers - that's basically how one learns. Coding is tough, but I see progress and I no longer have doubts it will work out.
My mentor has incredibly helpful and supportive and a great resource throughout the course. I've had a great time working with him and will really miss our regular meetings. The course has helped me really develop my skills and gain a great deal of confidence in myself as a developer, and I look forward to attending the workshops and continuing my growth.
I truly appreciated this course, but unfortunately I cannot continue due to financial reasons. If I ever get a chance to return, I would definitely do so.
I achieved more than I thought I could in only 2 months with Thinkful, so it was a great confidence-booster and great way to enter the field of development. Although the material on the Thinkful site wasn't always beginner-friendly, the mentor sessions were essential in my learning and that's what I benefited from the most. Also because my mentor was so awesome. He broke down all the material in a simpler way, explained in detail, and always encouraged creativity. Couldn't ask for more. Thank you thank you thank you!
It is really good format that having a meeting with mentor however I think, at least for me as a beginner I needed more explanation and more example when It explain about new things. It is kind a hard to do project without do little research. But I really enjoy learning at Thinkful.
I can't express how important and valuable my time with my mentor has been. He has helped me with big things and little things I would have never thought to ask. He is a great teacher. The curriculum is important and points you in a specific direction, and I get that it allows you to learn in a real world environment, but I would like a little more guidance. Maybe a little more hand holding, and explaining in a broken down format. Please don't get me wrong, I am learning a ton. It is already a 'good' format. There are just a couple steps to make it 'great'. But this is just my opinion, I'm sure someone else would say something completely different.
I just got a job as a junior front end developer and I will be starting that next week.
Hands down one of the best mentors I have come across here at Thinkful. My mentor never fails to follow up with me. I also enjoy the fact that he actually reviews my code, and quizzes me on the curriculum. He also does an awesome job of answering any questions I have.
A little bit more structure with the curriculum, but overall it was the best learning experience I've had, even after college.
