    Yes, I’ve blogged quite a bit about my experience with Hackbright. http://michelleglauser.blogspot.com/search?q=Hackbright

    I just started making a spreadsheet just like what you’re doing. Honestly, I like yours better in how it looks, but mine shows the info side-by-side with the titles, making it a little easier. But I’m definitely going to link to this site because you have done a wonderful job. Thanks!

    • Mine can show boot camps side by side. it just not too easy to use as it is. Look at the top right corner bellow the search field, there is another search. Type letter “a” (or any other) and you’ll see the list of boot camps. choose 2-3 boot camps and compare them side by side. I am planning to improve comparison process, but since i am not a programmer, it goes really slow.

    Too bad it’s sexist. Nothing liberating about that. 🙁

    • What? I don’t get you. There are plenty of programs for men, and there are a bunch of men working at Hackbright Academy. Just because it’s designed to help women enter a field in which they are a minority doesn’t mean it’s sexist.

    I really like the idea of the fellowship, but they seem to have some administrative problems. I emailed them for more information about the program, and they told me there was an upcoming seminar I could attend to get all my questions answered. I attended the online seminar, and there was no way to ask questions. You could only enter questions in chat. I entered a bunch of questions and the moderator told me to contact admissions via email. (Round and round we go.) I contact admissions again via email, and they sent me info about the next seminar where I could get all my questions answered 🙁
