    I graduated from the August 2015, Front End - JavaScript bootcamp as I was looking to make a career change. Grand Circus was the spring board I needed to increase my technology skills and created opportunities for me to network with employers looking to hire. I can't say enough about the support provided by the entire Grand Circus staff during the bootcamp. From resume support, mock interviews (both technical and traditional), networking pitches, tough love and pep talks, they are there to help you succeed. If you're seriously considering a career change into technology the Grand Circus bootcamps can help you do that. The curriculum is tough, but if you're willing to work extremely hard and don't give up before you've found the answer, you'll be ready for a new job as a developer. It worked for me, I was hired full time by a local Detroit start up 4 weeks after I completed the program.

    Grand Circus provided me with the best educational experience of all time and changed my life in ways that i did not think were possible. Since completeting my bootcamp, i have the best job of my life and my career is exceeding my grandest expectation. Overall: My experience at grand circus was second to none. Starting with my first "fact finding" phone call with the GC admin staff, I knew that I was dealing with passionate and knowledge individuals who cared about me and helping me achieve my goals. This initial feeling was confirmed and reestablished over and over again throughout my experience with GC. I loved every aspect of my bootcamp experience and would recommend GC to anyone who has any interest in software development. Administrative: Deciding to participate in a 10 week bootcamp was a significant decision for me - not least of all because of the financial aspect. However, as soon as i began discussing the financial piece of the bootcamp i felt immediately at ease. the GC staff were able to answer ALL of my questions and provide my with numerous options specific to my situation. This was a relief and allowed me to focus on coding and getting as much out of the bootcamp as possible. Staff: The GC staff, down to the person, are seriously amazing. They are incredibly passionate, knowledgeable, and supportive. They are always looking out for their students best interest and, again, i felt immediately at ease once I met them on site at Grand Circus in downtown Detroit. I developed lasting friendships with multiple GC team members. The bootcamp: The bootcamp itself was awesome! i loved my instructor, the curriculum, the unique approach to learning to code, the team work, and all of our deliverables. I felt like i was family with my fellow bootcamp teammembers and have remained in close contact with many of them. The pace of the bootcamp was malleable - our instructor and TA adjusted it weekly to match the students' grasp of the material. this was a HUGE value add as it ensued that eveyrone was able to remain engaged in spite of challenging material. Netoworking/job placement: UH-MAZING! Grand Circus is DIRECTLY responsible for helping me find the best job of my life and launch my career in a completely new and exciting direction. The GC staff used their networking contacts to secure me numerous interviews. Since finishing my bootcamp i have started a new job with an industry leading organization that i was put in contact with through grand circus. My role is closely related to what i studied at grand circus.

    Walked in to the coworking space in December 2014 to get some work done, and fell in love with the place -- it's perfectly located downtown right at Grand Circus and Woodward, and the people are great -- I suggested stand up desks one evening and I walked in the next morning to several stand-up tables scattered around the space. The team is part of the Quicken Loans Family of Companies, so they have deep connects and are happy to put you in touch w/leaders. Having a Detroit mailing address, unlimited Rice Krispies treats & cornbread muffins (read: delicious) and being part of the new tech-corridor makes this place ideal for anyone who wants "in" on Detroit's renaissance. Love GC!

    I did their Android boot-camp with Jayashree Ravi and was blown away. I got my ass kicked, and learned more in two months than I did during my entire bachelors degree. They keep the class size small enough for all the one-on-one I needed and the prof did everything she could to make me succeed, ie. testing my apps on her own time, finding references I couldn't then teaching me how to do the same. I was pissed off, sleep deprived and worked harder than I ever had been in my entire life, but I learned sooo much and it was worth it. If you want to learn to write code, and don't want any bs, this is the place.

    I've taken a course, a couple of seminars, attended many events and cowork out of Grand Circus Detroit. I can honestly say that their hospitality combined with their facilities and education programs are excellent. See for yourself.
