    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).

    Fantastic bootcamp experience!

    My Datascience bootcamp experience with brainstation was great. I learned so much and expanded my skill set tremendously. The instructors were knowledgeable and all working in the industry which gave us a lot of insight into what a potential employer might be looking for in terms of our skills. There were a lot of long hours involved and the projects were challenging, but I came out the other side with so much. At the end of the bootcamp and afterwards, there has been a lot of help and s...

    Data Science Bootcamp - BrainStation

    I really enjoyed the bootcamp. I believe all lecturers were very competent in understanding the content of their lectures, explaining it and clarifying concepts to students. I enjoyed how smoothly and organized everything ran. Specially, I appreciate the great disposition all lecturers had to address my concerns, of any topic and almost at any time.

    Best bootcamp you can go for!

    Brainstation is a great online and in person digital school. I went through the 12 weeks Software Engineering program and learnt so much. It's fast paced but I promise these hard weeks are gonna be so rewarding at the end when you look back at how much you were able to learn in such a small amount of time. I was able to build my own capstone project to present at the end of the bootcamp with complete full stack skills. I made my own database, I could have never imagine being capable of s...
