    Succinct introduction. Good, current, insights.

    The course was pretty succinct and covered a good range of basics to get a good understanding of digital marketing and the breadth of it. The course leader was working in the industry at a high level and had many current insights into the industry which I found important as digital marketing is still very much in flux with new social media platforms, new laws and regulations from across the globe regarding cookies and privacy - which are very important when it comes to targeted marketing...

    High-level learning

    I took the UX bootcamp and found it super helpful for high-level learning. No fluff. Just the stuff I needed to know. The instructors were AMAZING. Very supportive and well-informed on industry-standards. My classmates were incredible too and very supportive of each other.

    UX Design Certificate, BrainStation

    I am glad I took this course for many reasons. Firstly, the 10-week program was packed with information and useful resources but was also concise. Secondly, the instructors were really helpful and guided me well throughout the course, even when the questions were related to the job market and portfolio and not just the UX course. I am a graduate of Interaction Design but I got to learn more about UX best practices from this 10-week course than from my 8-month long course!

    Excellent Foundation Course for UX/UI

    My goals for this course were easily met and more!  Brainstation has curated an impactful UX/UI course experience. I came in with an understanding of Human Centered Design but no prior experience with UX or UI and feel like I have a solid foundational understanding of the field as a graduate. This was possible through intentional course design - content builds on itself in a comprehensive way throughout the 10 weeks of the course.  What I loved most is the UX/UI project we curate along t...

    BrainStation is the best there is!

    I could not be more satisfied with BrainStations data analytics class. The instructors were well versed in their knowledge of SQL, and Tableau. The classrooms and building itself are gorgeous, everyone is welcoming, and you meet some really great people. I would 100% recommend.

    Thorough, useful and technically sound

    The Brainstation Data Analytics Community course was a technically sound course that covered Advanced Excel, SQL and Tableau briefly but in detail. The course was co-convened by Xialoei and Claudio, both who brought their industry experience to the classroom and helped contextualise the technical learnings into practical capabilities.

    Great Experience! Very Challenging!

    Going into the bootcamp I had very elementary knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I could write basic for loops and make simple functions that printed things to the console. I also coded along with a few udemy courses, so I was vaguely familiar with some React syntax, but I couldn't replicate any of the code or apply it to my own projects. I was completely unaware of security issues or best practices.

    The curriculum is set up so every week feels like another hill to climb. Wee...

    UX Design - The perfect first step

    There are many bootcamp style programs out there for UX, but this one is a cut above. I did a lot of research to select it, and having now graduated, I feel it was well worth it. It was a ton of work, it was hard, but it was impactful and a very fun experience. It was definitely one of the most intense 12 weeks I've ever endured, truly a full time commitment. The educators are fantastic, and extremely talented designers with complimentary skillsets. I feel I have a very solid foundation ...

I addition, what is really important is that I have got confidence that I could achieve almost everything since I managed to implicated an impressive project in less than 12 weeks.

    Fast Paced and Intense Learning Experience

    BrainStation Data Science Bootcamp is a great place to start if you are looking for a career transition. I learnt so much from the Bootcamp in just 12 weeks.

Starting from the basics languages such as SQL and Python, I was able to build complex supervised and unsupervised machine learning models for my capstone project by the end of the course. Moreover, the speaker events...
