A great experience
Junior Web Developer (Former Employee) –  London, United Kingdom26 January 2018
The immersive programme teaches a range of popular programming languages and frameworks, as well as the soft skills needed to be a successful developer. Working in groups and individually I have
built applications using HTML5, CSS3, SASS, Bootstrap, JavaScript, jQuery, AJAX, Angular.js, Node,
Express, MongoDB, Mongoose, Ruby, SQL, Rails, and React.js. I have also participated in daily standups as well as contributing effectively to group work using Git, Github, and planning tools such as Trello.

UX Designer (Former Employee) –  London22 August 2017
After my time at General Assembly, I entered the workforce fully confident and well equipped.

Especially the pressure of the client project prepared me for any work pace at a normal office.

I enjoy the stand up we do every morning to discuss what we've learnt the previous day

Amazing place to work, seriously intense but worth it.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) –  London3 January 2015
I loved being a student here and also working as a teaching assistant here. I learnt so much as a web developer, it was incredibly intense and I put in serious hours(off my own back), but it was worth it. The people are great and meeting a group of likeminded people and working with them every day for 6 months was great.
