    Software Engineering Bootcamp

    The program is intensive, well structured, and covers a wide range of tools and technologies. Teachers and TAs are responsive and pay attention to all students on emerging issues. There are many interesting individual and group projects. I recommend the course for those planning to start a career in Software Engineering with some basic knowledge about the software development lifecycle.

    good good good

    as a self paced learner, i don't think i really like bootcamp study, but the courses provided by Brainstation do meet requirments of industry maket which is helpful, and i just personally hate seating in a classroom with a lot people, generally the experience is good, some of educators and TAs are patient, some are not unfortunately, overall highly recommand to people who need strong support when they are learning new knowledge.

    Great Software Engineer Bootcamp

    Brainstation is the best software engineering bootcamp. I learned so much for just 3 months. It's better than self-learning on udemy or coursera or youtube, because there are educators and TAs to help you. And also you can learn the update technology and connect with real people in the industry.

    Wondeful Experience.

    I had a great time during my experience with BrainStation for the digital marketing course. Our teachers, Davide and Shanni, were incredibly knowledgeable and well-versed in the industry. I would have benefited more from hands-on demos of the platforms and crafting demo campaigns together, rather than solely listening to instructions on how to set them up. Despite that, I thought the course was great overall, and I would definitely recommend it.

    Excellent bootcamp experience at BrainStation

    Having completed a two-year Computer Programming course at Seneca, I found myself in possession of a solid academic foundation but with a skill set that felt underdeveloped for the demands of the tech industry. My transition to BrainStation was a revelation. From the outset, the learning environment resonated with a sense of purpose and practicality that was both invigorating and inspiring.

    At BrainStation, the curriculum wasn't just about learning to code; it was a co...

    Positively Skewed Mixed Bag

    Where to begin, on one hand my experience with the education team was incredible.  The teachers are all very unique and incredibly intelligent, it was a pleasure to learn from all of them and I feel like a completely different person from when I started.  On the other hand, the career experience team is very lackluster.  You don't really deal with them very much until the end of the course so it doesn't really affect you all too much but the stark contrast in quality is jarring.

    Knowledgeable and Supportive Instructors

    After a lot of research, I decided on a tech bootcamp experience because I needed not only the new skills/knowledge but also career support in transitioning. I had pretty low expectations of what the teaching part was going to be like and expected I was going to have to supplement a lot on my own, but I was happily surprised by the pedagogy. I have a background in education so feel really clear that we received a good educational experience--our educators held high expectations while bei...

    Way better than I expected

    When I was first looking around for a bootcamp, I was overwhelmed with the amount of coding bootcamp options. I chose to enroll to BrainStation Software Engineering bootcamp, and at first I was skeptical and unsure. But now as a bootcamp graduate I am over satisfied with the results and skills that I've learned from this course. The educators, TA's, and my cohort were all an awesome group to experience this journey with. I would definitely recommend!

    Challenging but rewarding class! Learning a new program and career process simultaneously was tough, yet the supportive teachers go above and beyond. Be prepared for a bootcamp experience—intense, but the payoff is worth it. Grateful for the journey!

    Learned a tonne!

    I signed up for this after years of trying to teach myself software development and I learned more here in 3 months than I did in 3+ years trying to teach myself. The content and the educators are top-notch and the pacing pushed me (without pushing me over the edge, haha).
