Attended: Social Media Strategy Mapping

The course was okay. It had content. I expected a lot more from it. We spent too much time on history instead of actual practices and strategy. The instructor also threw me for a loop because he made some comments that in my opinion weren't tasteful. Especially considering the fact that he didn't know any of the students and what their disabilities were

Attended: Introduction to Python Programming

Definitely a great intro course to python. As a first classes ever in any type of programming, I was able to pretty much follow along and grasp it slowly but surely. Will definitely like to take advantage of more courses in the future


Attended: SQL Bootcamp

The instructor rambled the whole time, was very disorganized, and failed to appreciate the fact that most people in the class were NOT familiar with programming lingo. Even when asked direct questions, she failed to answer them in a way we understood.

Attended: Storytelling Skills: Wow Your Crowd

Very understandable and engaging presentation of the storytelling basics. Kevin could draw an example for every detail he explained which made it very tangible and easy to follow.


Attended: AdWords Bootcamp: Get Certified for Google

The instructor was very knowledgable about the materials (AdWords/Search marketing) and he was very engaging during the course. I leaned so much in just 2 days and I'm glad I took the course. However, the reason why my rating isn't so high is that the structure of this course isn't efficient. Unless you have more than basic background in online search marketing, Adwords, SEO, or even other social media ads like Facebook ads, you will not be able to absorb the massive amount of information in just 2 days. There should be a course that covers the basics and then this course can be nothing but about getting certified for Google Adwords. Not to mention, taking this course doesn't guarantee the certification. You have to take the tests on your own anytime afterwords and get certified. I think the description should clarify that. Also, there were too much interruptions during the class by taking the individual questions often. The entire class had to spend the amount of time to listen to their personal business concerns and questions.

Attended: The Building Blocks of Blogging

Michael Peggs is an engaging and thought provoking teacher. The duration of the class was up beat and never a dull moment. I liked his structure of the class, but most of all I appreciated his honesty. Mr. Peggs is inspiring to learn from. His own blog and background motivates people to create their own. Being able to create a full time job out of blogging within three years impressed me. I hope that he continues to teach; his encouragement and knowledge is impactful. It was my first time taking a Course Horse class. The atmosphere, location and facility is accommodating and a great layout. I would defiantly consider taking another course. Overall, the class gave me better knowledge about blogging and how to systematically build a successful blog. Best Wishes, Lisa Mc Donald

I enjoyed the interactive format and the insights shared by the diverse group of attorneys, entrepreneurs and architects.


Attended: SQL Bootcamp

The class was informative but disorganized. The instructor was knowledgeable but not an effective or polished communicator / teacher. Starting with the basic building blocks and using more real-world, business-oriented examples would have made the class more compelling.


Attended: Business Development and Building Partnerships

the instructor was engaging an informative. it by far exceeded my expectations.


Attended: Getting Started With Wordpress

Attended: Public Speaking & 3 C's:Confidence, Creativity & Comedy

Nice and energetic instructors but felt way more of an actors 101 workshop then practical business presentation skills. A lot of assumption that presentations are about reading script, which is not often the case.


Attended: Digital Marketing For Business Growth

Very helpful, lots of interaction, would definitely recommend to anyone interested.


Attended: Digital Marketing For Business Growth

Unfortunately it kind of depended on who I was sitting next to. The first half of the class, my partner and I did not understand each others businesses and the brain storming was no helpful, for either of us I'm sure. The second half of the class, the girl and I hit it off and helped each other out a ton. That's not something you can help though! Other than that, great class.

Attended: SQL Bootcamp

Gordan was ok, he's not a PC guy so if you're gonna come in with a PC prepared to ask someone else to help you set up SQL. Kind of a bummer, I mean he's been teaching this class for a while..why can't he just have a general instruction guide for installing on PC. If you have Mac or Linux, he can help...

This class was amazing and way exceeded my expectations. In one day, it taught me all of the basics of illustrator and I can proudly say i feel like I know how to use the program and use it well. Camille was very thorough, knowledgeable, patient, and kind! I'd recommend to anyone!


Attended: Public Speaking & 3 C's:Confidence, Creativity & Comedy

I thought the teachers did a wonderful job. It’s challenging to turn a roomful of nervous strangers into a working, supportive and willing group in a short period of time and give something of value. The class succeeds on both counts. Worth the money and the time.

Also the instructor was great, explained things well, patiently answered all questions and provided contact information for followup and additional resources.

Attended: Social Media Weekend Bootcamp

The instructor, Chris Gee, was very informative and thorough regarding the course's content. He was receptive to any questions students had and he knew how to engage the class. Also, the staff at General Assembly were very nice and welcoming to myself and the other students. The Social Media Bootcamp course might be long but at 7-8 hours but it's a class well worth taking.


Attended: Introduction to Ruby on Rails Workshop

The instructor, Brian Fountain, was an excellent teacher. He was clear and effective at communicating beginner concepts and next steps for Ruby on Rails. This course had some materials to review before hand, which were helpful in getting into the actually information more quickly. There were some students who had computer or software problems. This slowed us down considerable. But Brian was very nice about helping every person and finding solutions. If you decide to take this, or a similar course, I recommend reviewing materials and software requirements carefully before attending.


Attended: Introduction to Ruby on Rails Workshop

The course covers a lot of ground and is taught by Brian Fountain. He was very knowledgeable and willing to help students throughout the class instruction. I would suggest coming to the class with a primer on Ruby under your belt so you aren't completely lost on the first day. I found taking the Codecademy Ruby course the week prior to the class to be very helpful. The value of the course really kicks in on the second day when you create the apps and learn how easily rails can work in your favor. There is still a lot to learn before considering yourself a web developer after this workshop, but it definitely gives you guidance on your next steps, and demystifies many of the basic web development questions you may have as a newbie. Well worth the investment.


Attended: Storytelling for Entrepreneurs: Elevator Pitches

Great introductory class. Provides solid basic tools to explore and build upon.


Attended: Social Media Strategy Mapping

Class was good, but introductory for me. I would recommend to beginners but I would like some more hands on strategy to specific mediums. My only issue would be the description of the course does not reflect this.

Attended: Effective Email Strategy: How to Write to Get Results

This was certainly a useful 2 hour course covering the basics on how to write an effective email and pitfalls to watch out for. The class was interactive and included a number of "references" that get more in depth on effective practices. Jessica, the in structure, was great. It's clear she has done this before.


Attended: Write Emails Your Users Will Actually Read

This class should be mandatory for anyone sending emails! Wonderful! Thank you!


Attended: User Experience Design Bootcamp

I am a motion graphics and VFX producer. I took this class because of the increase in requests we've been getting to take on projects that require our team working with UX Designers. This bootcamp was perfect for my needs. There were two instructors that had very different personalities and teaching styles, this worked really well, and made it feel like we were getting a diversity of opinions on the topics. The top-level introduction to Omnigraffle helped a lot, and was a great intro to the software, not only how to use it, but when to use it. General Assembly was a great atmosphere for the course, buzzing with tech conversations. The class room itself got a little too crowded, and there were a couple of students who did not get a desk. Get there early. I would recommend this course for anyone looking to gain a more formal knowledge of what UX is and is not. It would be a great for: someone interested in making a career change, clients who should understand the process more, project managers, producers, and designers. Hope this helped. -Ted


Attended: Build a Financial Model to Support Business Decisions

The class was a great introduction in to financial modeling. The instructor was very knowledgable of Excel, and equally patient with the class. Most importantly, he was a great communicator.


Attended: Effective Email Strategy: How to Write to Get Results

it was extremely helpful, thank you!


Attended: Hadoop and NoSQL for Terrified Absolute Beginners

A great class, delivered with a good pace and for me, pitched at the right level. I got a great overview to Hadoop, SQL, NoSQL and NewSQL.


Attended: Branding Bootcamp

The class was listed as being 3 hours long, but it was only 2. I'd like a $30 refund, accounting for 1/3 of the amount. The class was interesting, but it was somewhat superficial, and did not bring the participants to having basic knowledge of the subject.


Attended: Refining Your Public Speaking and Presentation Skills

The class went really well. I thought the teacher was awesome and instructed an interesting, engaging, and helpful class. I would definitely take more of his seminars!


Attended: Social Media Weekend Bootcamp

I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to get a clearer picture of the evolving world of social media. Chris Gee, the instructor, was knowledgeable, personable and open to taking many questions. It was a great class!


Attended: Refining Your Public Speaking and Presentation Skills

I liked it and thought the workshop was helpful.


Attended: Introduction to Javascript and JQuery Workshop

Great course. Andy is very good at explaining the fundamentals of javascript, and when/where it makes sense to use JQuery in your code. I left the class feeling more confident in my abilities to create dynamic applications, as well as, more confident in my abilities to troubleshoot errors. This is the type of introductory course that one can take multiple times and always walk away having learned something new.
