Is General Assembly worth the time and money?

Looking at the offering and some of the courses that are offered on the site. Especially the ones around programming. Has any of you taken any of these courses and do you have any experience that you can share with me? Are those courses legit and do they add value to the resume when including them on LinkedIn or the CV? Thank you so very much for your help with this.

I've met lots of people that took GA courses, but I have only worked professionally with one or two. IMO, either you were a geek growing up and coded for fun (then got BS/MS degrees) like I did, or you needed to learn it as an adult and taught yourself. AFAICT, programs like GA don't save much time and it takes a lot of time to be a good programmer, like anything else in life. But if you feel drawn to this work, then go for it by any means at your disposal! Including GA and the like. It's fun work that pays well and more people should get into it.
