    I joined the Web Development Immersive course during the summer with a strong interest and hope for related career development. The course was very informative and the instructors and TAs were very helpful in every aspect. 

    Learning job-ready skills in 10 weeks bootcamp can definitely be very challenging. I had to put in a lot of effort to gain the maximum out of the course even with some background in computer science. But it was very much worth it.

    People without science background could find it hard to catch up with the materials at times, but the TAs were very helpful and the instructors added extra sessions to help go over the materials so that everyone's on the same page.

    The syllabus was very well organized and the contents taught were very up-to-speed with the industrial standard. 

    ps. They also provided snacks, energy bars and fruits. Sometimes they also had meals for special events, or left-over food from other courses, and it was soooooo good!

    tl;dr: great course, fantastic people, can be challenging, need a lot of effort, and delicious food!

    I completed the FT Web Immersive program this past summer in August of 2016. The program, which utilizes a flipped-classroom approach to teach modern, cutting-edge technologies, offered a unique learning opportunity to my expand technical skills as well as gain valuable industry experience through working in diverse teams under real world circumstances.

    In such a program where grades are nonexistent, one really needs to put in the extra work and ask necassary questions to make the most of the entire experience. I would say if you can consistently put a strong effort in throughout the duration of the program you will confidently walk away with substantial value.

    To this point the BS team and staff were exceptional, they offered us unlimited access to the workspace, discounts to BS events outside the classroom, and were always available for questions even if such questions were beyond the scope of the program.

    I would say one area the BS team could improve in is to spend more 1 on 1 time with students to assess and discuss their progress in the course. My cohort of 30+ was the largest they had seen to date, we had a distinct skills gap where many students were struggling while several others were getting bored with the slowed pace. To my understanding they have begun to address this issue with recent cohorts by scaling back, increasing admissions standards, and focusing more on student experience.

    The cirriculum and course content they provide is fantastic, it is still something I am referring back to even as I am now compeleting a Bsc. in computer science. They do a tremendous job of exposing you to the most essential and relevant technologies in such a short period of time. Even after the program is over they allow access to the course portal and are always available to answer any questions you may have.

    I would certainly recommend BS to anyone seriously interested in attending a web dev bootcamp but only after advising them that bootcamps should not be seen as a ticket to a job as a full stack developer but rather as an extremely strong foundation and starting point from which the must continue to work hard and grow into the space.

    I can’t say enough about BrainStation. For those who are looking to learn a new skill or change careers altogether, these part-time courses are so ideal. I work full-time, so taking a full-time course isn’t an option for me, but the part-time course makes learning super flexible! 

    I’ve noticed that a lot of employers are looking for basic knowledge in HTML/CSS, so having additional insight of UI Design is complementary to that.

    The instructors are knowledgable and approachable. They are attentive and give great constructive feedback.

    Would highly recommend!

    I just finished up the part time Digital Marketing course in Toronto. I recently graduated from a Marketing and Communications university undergrad. I wanted to take this course as an alternative to a 1 or 2 year post-graduate diploma at a college, and I'm very happy I made that decision. It was an expediated alternative to bridge the gap from a common business degree into a more specialized field. I took from the course exactly what I was looking. And whether it was the course helped or not I don't know...but I landed an entry level position with Digital Marketing Agency here in Toronto very quickly.

    PROS
    - Course content was relevent, practical, and insightful in todays tech and marketing world. 
    - The digital marketing campaign you are assigned to build out as your group project, was directly inline with course content and a great way to apply concepts into a real life setting.
    - My class was taught by a Growth Hacker from Shopify and assisted by a Digital Marketing Manager from Adidas. They seemed to have a lot of industry experience and insight. 
    - The Brainstation space/building is top notch, and there staff are super helpful and welcoming. I was sad when I finished up the course.

    CONS
    - The course does go by quick. If you don't pay attention in class or miss a class in general, you will be missing an important part.
    - The classes/instructors could improve there timing/structure. Breaks and project time need to be more defined and consistent.
    - The brands assigned to the RFP project should give more info with regards to their needs and direction. Also, students should not be allowed to chose which brand they work on. As a marketing professional in the real world, you don't always get to pick who your clients are right?

    OVERALL
    From what I gathered from my course and time there, Brainstation is leading the pack in Toronto it comes to this kinda stuff. The place seems like a hub for tech, design, and business people. Come in with an open mind, and not with a "know it all" mentality. You'll learn a lot more that way.

    Like anything in life, it is what you make of it. If you put the effort to pay attention in class, interact with other students/instructors, and most importantly apply/practice the concepts you learn in class towards the project...you will take a lot from it. And the project is a big portfolio builder in my opinion. Also, as a student you get access to all the other bootcamps and events they hold on a weekly basis. I definately took advantage of that. Once I settle into my new job, I thinking I'll be taking the Product Management course. Overall experience = 4/5.

    I recently took the iOS Development class at BrainStation offered in Fall 2016.  The favourite part of my experience with BrainStation was the great instructors with well organized course materials. I was very impressed with things we do in the class, which was heavily focused on hands-on projects. Although first couple weeks were reviewing what I learned at school, it was essential since I lacked in basic foundation in Swift language. I loved how not only instructor is there to help you but also the TAs. They work in the relative field to iOS Development, and I was able to get some professional experience over the shoulders from them. As a student, this was a huge asset for me in getting an internship position.

    This course is pretty tough for beginners, but people who do their homework and are very passionate got to finish their courses successfully.  Reaching out to the instructor is also important, as they are willing to help you as best as they can.

    The teacher was amazing. Explained to detail made sure everyone was understanding what we were learning. The assistant worked out well so that there was enough to get around the 10 people in the classroom which helped on the waiting time for others  to catch up. Well organized and structured course notes.

    I've taken 2 bootcamps with Brainstation TO and I loved them. The one thing is the levels within the class are very varying. I have some experience with SEO and Google Analytics so it was easy to be engaged and I learned a lot. If you have no experience or desire to prepare a bit before you will be lost. I've done 3 different SEO type courses to help learn from a wide range of teachers and I really enjoy the teachers at Brainstation, especially Jenn Daly. She has corporate, SMB and startup experience so a wide range. The Nov 27th class was a bit too big. SEO and Google Analytics is very hands on and they do a good job of having demo accounts available and teaching you tricks and tools of the trade. I can read the deck myself, their hands on examples and real life experiences was very helpful.

    Did a advanced level part-time course with them that is no longer offered.

    Really didn't learn much of anythning... the instructor spent so much time debugging his code and offering vague explanations that we were all very lost. Some were stuggling with simply getting things to work, some struggled to get a deeper understanding of the material because instructor can't answer questions. 

    Also terrible in following up ... we were told we would get a video tutorial on the rest of the material which we didn't cover when we ran out of time and course ended.... we never got said video. 

    Terrible waste of my time and $.

    We started with about 12 ppl and by the end most had dropped out. 

    I offered to provide feedback to the founder but they weren't interested.
    FYI lighthouse labs in toronto seems to have better quality instructors and take teaching more seriously.

    Student experience is incredibly important to us, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly at contact@brainstation.io so that a member of our team can help improve what appears to be a negative experience.

    My exerience with Brainstation was amazing!. The structure of the curriculum enabled students to learn concepts in the most effective manner. The staff here are friendly, knolwedgable and always willing to help. The program is pricey, but if you are passionate in development, it is definately worth your time ( or learn it yourself that may take you years).

    Some tips for people enrolling:

    1) Dabble with programming to see if you like it. Knowing some basic javascript will clear some pain in the long run. The pace of the curriculum is quick so getting familiar with the language and syntax will ensure you don't fall behind. 

    2) Be assertive in asking questions and claryfing conepts repeatedly. Brainstation is a friendly learning envrionment and most people don't come from a programming background.

    3) Most importantly, have realistic expectations. Brainstation will give you all the tools and knowledge to become a full-stack developer in 10 weeks. It is the fastest way to become one. However, don't treat it so lightly as it will come easy. Because the pace goes pretty quickly, get ready to put in the extra hours of work and even working on it on weekends. I recomend putting all your heart and soul in those 10 weeks!

    I had been looking all around Vancouver for a web development course for over a year, but I had a difficult time finding something that met all my requirements. BrainStation ended up meeting all my repirements: a schedule that easily fit into my busy life, was intensive enough to get value for the cost, and most importantly, I needed to work on projects that I could see myself using in the real world.

    I was really impressed with the entire experience. The facilities are beautiful and modern, the course portal is a great resource to use inside and outside of class, the educators are passionate, knowledgeable, and helpful. I learned more than I exptected and I'm so proud of the final project I created.

    Just be sure to bring your own laptop! The school does not have their own computers and I nearly showed up to class without one.

    I went to BrainStation Vancouver to participate in the Summer 2016 courses of Digital Marketing, Product Management and SEO/SEM & Analytics and was very impressed by the management, the staff and the instructors.
    BrainStation has a team of very knowledgeable instructors who also work in companies like Herschel, Unbounce and Mobify (among others) that are a pleasure and privilege to work with.
    The atmosphere is laid back, mature and professional.
    The Vancouver headquarters will satisfy the most demanding standards.

    I definitely recommend BrainStation to  anyone considering a career in  Tech, or  increase their skill set.

    A special thank you to Kyle, Andrea, Liana, Justin and Loki for having made the experience delightful!

    Currently enrolled in the Intro to Web Development at BrainStation and am loving it. I have a content website and paid a hell of a lot of cash to have it designed and developed - I'm taking the course out of interest in expanding my skills, and so that I'm not having to pay someone to expand my site in the future.   

    As someone with a background in the arts, it can take me awhile to grasp the logical thinking required for coding, but the class has been excellent at giving me the foundation of coding and training me to problem solve like a developer. Definitely recommend for any creatives out there!

    I've been taking the Digital Marketing course at BrainStation for the past few months and I love it! I have a marketing degree but needed to get a refresher on some of the digital components of my degree. BrainStation was the perfect choice for me. The classes are relaxed and fun, but in-depth and relevant. The instructors are hip and are all working in the industry. I highly recommend BrainStation.

    I took the UX Design 12 weeks bootcamp in October 2015. It was one of the best investments I've made. The instructors are very knowledgeable and they are always there to help you.

    One of the aspects that I liked the most about the course is that you get the chance to apply all the lessons you learn during the class into a project on your choice. The information I received has given me tremendous value, and contributed in helping me to build my own business.

    I highly recommend Brainstation classes to anyone who plans to move up to the next level in their career, start a new career, start a business, or simply just wants to learn something new

    I graduated from BrainStation's Web Development Immsersive Class in June 2016 and found the experience to be comprehensive and enjoyable. In 10 weeks, students are taught how to build a functional web application from beginning to end. Many students have no previous experience in web development and are still able to follow the course's quick pace, although it would certainly be beneficial. The course is structured in a way that students are presented with new topics in a meaningful order that allows a thorough understanding of how the different parts of a web application are connected. Although there is no formal job assistance, the staff at BrainStation is very active in helping students achieve their goals. I would certainly recommend this course and would advise prospective students to have clearly defined goals heading into the course as well as a realistic expectaion of the amount of work that is required to achieve loftier goals.

    I took the full time immersive web development course winter 2016. It was one of the best decisions I made. Before I began the course I planned on taking online bootcamps so I studied a bit of Javascript on my own and had a solid basic understanding of the language. But I decided on Brainstation because of the curriculum. They teach the JS frameworks throughout which makes it a bit easier than having to learn Ruby AND JS for example. 

    I knew I liked programming but I didn't know what to study on my own, hence why I decided to take the course. Suffice to say, I got maximum value out of the course and have to really applaud the instructors and organizers, they put tremendous effort into ensuring you come out of the course with an arsenal of skills. There was always extra projects / challenges to tackle if you finished early or ahead of schedule and the instructors and TAs are tireless in helping out. Fantastic atmosphere, fantastic learning space as well. If you are planning on getting into this field, Brainstation is a no brainer. But I do suggest you familiarize yourself with some material beforehand, spend as much time as you can learning JS and doing practice problems as it will let you focus on utilizing the tools you know to build things instead of learning to use the tools. 

    The course is paced well for any type of learner, slow or fast. You will build projects for every major topic and thats where the magic happens. The more ambitious your attempt, the more value you will get out of the course. The projects are also managed by the staff to mimic real world environments, ie. agile development with sprint plans etc. Job prep is also included in the tail end of the course. You will get a sense of what is required for interviews, the importance of an online presence, personal projects and contributions etc. We were also interviewed by the parent company's technical director as a practice exercise. I was lucky enough to land a second interview and an internship position sometime after the course. 

    I did however spend all my weekends working on course material and trying to build different things based on what we learned thus far. In the final 2 weeks where the entirety of the course was focused on individual final projects, I spent over 9hrs a day working on my web app. Brainstation won't guarantee any % of graduates landing jobs but if you invest a signifcant amount of time and effort into creating a small portfolio while you are doing the course, you will have a very good chance of being hired for a junior role somewhere in the city, I am confident of that. Brainstation provided a platform to dive deep into this field and extract maximum value and knowledge in a relative short span. Although I come from a technical background and have a slight inclination to technical topics, I believe anyone willing to put 100% energy into this can come out of it with as much value or more than I have. Excellent staff, excellent support, excellent course material.

    I'm currently taking the part-time Product Management course at BrainStation and can't say enough good things about my experience so far! I was looking to learn new professional skills to help me progress in my career, but I wanted to learn something completely new. I work in Marketing and thought learning about Product Management/Development would help me have a better understanding of the products that I'm "selling" every day. Not only has all of the course material been completely applicable to my current role and company, but it will also be helpful for any future opportunities. The staff is ALL helpful and friendly, and the instructors and teaching assistants are current experts in their fields, so they can provide insight and advice based on relevant information. Two thumbs up!!

    I am currently on week seven of the iOS Development course at BrainStation. This course continues to impress me with the challenges we face every week. I was looking for a challenge and was definitely able to find it.

    I've been programming in Java for nearly two years and was excited to try an experience with a new language. I was expecting the transition would be tough at first, but overall logic is logic and I will pick it up quite quickly. I have been continuously suprised with the difference between the two languages and have been able to set a few goals for the outcome of this course. It excites me to have a challenge after programming comfortably in Java for so long. 

    We are using Swift and I love it. Programming in Xcode is a beautiful experience, it's visually appealing more than anything, but the ease of dragging and dropping makes app creation almost like a game. You feel more like a designer than anything and are able to see what you are doing while it's happening. The simulator is very cool, as it takes the form of an iPhone screen as you load your projects and it switches between realistic app icons on the screen. Great experience.

    Up until about two weeks ago, we have been using playgrounds over projects, getting right into programming fundamentals and transitioning into Object-Oriented Programming Swift style. We started making basic apps, including a calculator, a weather app and are currently working on creating a user creation and login/logout application. The current project is something fundamental for many applications, so I'm excited to see how this goes.

    The instructors are very helpful and I have been enjoying the type of work we've been going through. I definitely encourage external resource hunting, as one day a week for three hours is not enough time to expect to gain all of the knowledge it takes to become an iOS Developer. It's very much a course that you need to help yourself while the very knowledgable instructors will teach you all the latest concepts and basics to lift you off into a new language to potentially master. 

    So far, it's a pretty cool experience and I am very happy to have a few projects to add to my portfolio.

    The Product Management course offered by BrainStation is one of its kind. The course compresses a few months of MBA content into a few weeks. The course instructor comes with a great amount of experience. He was one of the key members in the launch of the famous BlackBerry Messenger. He has been in the industry for over 2 decades working with a wide variety of companies. Learning from an industry expert gives you the hands on knowledge and exposure that employers in today's age are looking for. The TA in class also comes from a Product Management background. The advantage is that you have best of both worlds - You learn the theoretical part of it along with the skills that are required to make you a successful Product Manager. The students in class come from a wide variety of backgrounds. We have people with a science background who are looking to develop their own product and want to learn how to take a product from its inception to launching it in the market. The class size is small, with approximately 30 students in class. Everyone has a grand project that they work towards from day one. At the end of it, each student has a tangible outcome, which can used later to show to employers for future jobs.

    I also have two great instructors who really understand how to educate informatively while still having fun.
    Highly recommend for people looking to enroll in cutting edge classes.
