    My instrutor Paul Pittman is very experienced, passionate, and wise. The best part of this course is Paul would share his real-worklife experience on UX design so I would get to taste how this field works. I’ve gotta say taking this course at Brainstation is very different than taking any other courses at institutions because the interactivity and disucssion during class. The problems solving challenges given in the cass keeps my brain running. 

    Taking this course motivates me to use the other side of the brain (which I hardly use) .. I have been in the graphic designer field for very long and all I have been working is transforming information into beautiful graphics. The UX thinking is a new challenge for me because I need to think logically all the time, and need to find out potential problems and solutions on all possible situations that will occur.  

     

    On the last class Paul gave a very good advice  that UX designers need to be a leader who can’t be shy, and have excellent communication. He also inspired us how to introduce UX design into our workplace in a practical ways. In this course, the technical / academic parts of this course is just foundation; however, the thinking and altitude, and character buildling is the key is a life-time learning process.  Hence, this course is a great reminder and a great motivation to move you to the next level.

    The BrainStation family has been a tremendous part of my life in the very short amount of time I had the pleasure of being with them. In mere twelve weeks I went from having no knowledge of web development and programming, to being incredibly confident with HTML, CSS, SASS, JavaScript, React, Node.js, Express, MySQL, and Sequelize, as part of our curriculum. In addition to this official tech stack, my peers and instructors helped me in learning MongoDB, and how to use aspects of the AWS & Heroku cloud infrastructures to deploy my projects.

    I could never have achieved this on my own, and even if I somehow managed to do it, I would have completely missed out on the quality of education and the opportunities that BrainStation afforded me. Because BrainStation does not simply show you how to code — we were tested with whiteboarding sessions twice per week, and completed our assignments in the agile development method - the industry standard. Additionally, we participated in cross-disciplinary hackathons, toured offices of top tech companies in Vancouver, and regularly had them pay visits to our classroom to deliver lectures on their work. We also had regular career planning talks, lectures, etc; and last but certainly not least, we had our Demo Day with dedicated for industry recruiters and the who's who of the tech scene in Vancouver.

    I must admit that before I signed up for BrainStation, I was concerned if it was as good as it sounds. I was especially concerned about the quality of education that I would receive. But as I came to find out: every single person I dealt with during my time at BrainStation, from admissions, to admin, to career support, is nothing but extremely professional and knowledgable about what they are doing. The teaching staff especially blew me away at how fantastic they are at their jobs. I can confidently say that my main instructor at BrainStation is amongst my top 3 teachers/professors I have ever had, and the TAs are better than any TA I have had at UBC.

    I simply cannot recommend the Web Development Diploma Program at BrainStation enough.

    Simply amazing.
    at first, I didn't know which Bootcamp to go to, but after researching I realize that BrainStation offers pretty much best in the field. After this 12 week program, I have learned everything I need, and all the TAs and the educator helped me so much so that I won't fell behind. Career Success sessions also helped me with my resume and storytelling skill. Besides those, there is so many more amazing practice interview questions and many more other. benefits. But one thing I enjoy the most is the atmosphere at BrainStation, everything is so friendly and it made me felt like I was part of a big family. I would wake up every morning wanting to go.
    I would highly recommend BrainStation to everyone out there looking for a Bootcamp to go!

    Fantastic experience!

    When I first found Brainstation, I was for sure a bit skeptical coming from trying different MOOC's, that often seemed lacking. However quickly I began to see the quality of the content, the highly knowledgeable instructors and the ease of use with the Synapse learning portal. I did the online version of the program for the convenience and ended up moving across the country from BC to Toronto during the program and I was still able to keep up and continue my growth during a busy move. The instructors were amazing and went above and beyond to make sure they were putting the students in the best situation to succeed and were always extremely helpful, answering questions regarding the content, the industry and ways to improve. Parin and Nishant were very knowledgeable and a delight to learn from and very accommodating to students of all skill levels. 

    I highly recommend this program and Brainstation in general! Absolutely will be back for more!

    I completed the BrainStation 5-week intensive in Data Science in August/September 2019 through the Toronto campus, and had a fantastic experience. I was entirely new to the world of Data Science, although come from a background in Structural Engineering, so had soe limited experience with Python and data analysis. I was surprised to realize how creative Data Science can be. When combined with an analytical background, creativity can really guide you in this field in terms of how you interpret data, understand human behaviour behind data, and come up with corresponding test models based on this.   

    The instructor was thorough, made time for individual students while also maintaing the schedule. You have to be present for each class as they are live and it is intended that you follow along with the material while interactively coding and analysing on your own screen. I learned a ton! We went through the basics of Python programming first, which was essential for me. I would HIGHLY reccomended completing the Prep Course they provide you with (for free), prior to embarking on your first class, or within your first week. The 5 weeks was certainly intense, and I made time for about 3 hours of "homework" each week. The final project was fun as we got to chose our own data set to work with!

    I recently completed the “User Experience Design Certificate Course” offered by BrainStation, and I really enjoyed it. While there is an option to take the course over an 11-week period, I decided to complete the course in five weeks. The accelerated version is great, but there is quite a bit of material covered in a short period of time. If you feel like you can keep up with the fast pace, it is a good option to consider.

    What I liked most about the course:

    • The online course is live. You have to sign in to the classroom and participate.
    • The class is interactive, so you’re listening to lectures but also applying what you’re learning
    • There are breakout rooms for students to practice interviewing each other, sharing their designs, etc.
    • There is a project component to the course, so you have to apply what you’re learning before you can complete the course

    I do want to mention that:

    • This is an introductory course. I wouldn’t recommend this to people who have a background in UX design.
    • The accelerated version of the class requires people to pick up the concepts and tools we’re using quickly.

    So this was my first time attending an online class. Never have done it before and was assuming it would be easy, in which it was. But that was not my goal to join the course in the first place. I originally signed up for the summer course in the new york offices but to reasons partaking the instructor that was supposed to teach that class it was disbanded. So i was put in a Online class. Another event happened shortly after which was they pushed my online class to late october instead of early october.... It was annoying but nonetheless i still wanted to get the program started. Once it came to be the instructor i had was knowledgble and gav insight industry tips about UX design. By this time I was already self teaching for about 7 months so 80% of the tops that was reviewed i knew about. The other 20% was methods that i didnt quite understand from selfteaching so that was good. Overall it wasnt bad for but it would've been better if i was in an actually classroom with other students next to me. More of a Network mindset i was expecting to have but networking in different regions wasn't for me. I'll recommend anyone to brainstation but the online course, its up to the indiviual if they are suitable for the online courses depending on there life situation.

    - Very helpful team.

    - Super accommodating campus experience.

    - Very friendly instructors

     

    Con's

    - I was disappointed to find that the course was still structured as more of a 'sage on the stage' style like what you do at most universities, compared to flipped classroom style. I think this makes the course a little less scary, because it results in less requirement to prepare between classes, and results in feeling like you're learning compared to actually learning.

    - Too often would the instructor as us to "read over and work through this next part", but when the next part contains both the question and the answer, its too easy to feel like you understand without possessing the skills to get to the right answer on your own. Assignments were provided as a way to gauge your own understanding outside of class time, but were never reviewed or worked on in class, we infrequently had some challenges in class but I would've liked to see more of these.

    This was my first course at Brainstation, I was hesitant at first as it's been almost 15 years since I've gone to "school" for anything.

    The process from the beginning was pretty seamless, they assign you a Brainstation lead who walks you through everything, from the prep course, how to use their platform called Synapse, all of this is done through Slack which is simple enough to use.

    Once you have all the prework done, it sets you up for what to expect in this class, how to use SQL and the software Tableau.  Our instructors Rohan and Micheal were super transparent with us as a group - We weren't leaving this class with full understanding of SQL, and the various implementations of it.. but a solid foundation and what we need to know to get around SQL commands in the simplest form. 

    This is exactly what I needed. It was a refreshing and fun way to get the basics, with the expectation to do extensive practice at home so we can sharpen our skills.


    Speaking of Micheal and Rohan, they were a pleasure to learn from. They both have a different background, one more analytical and one more on the data science side, and it was a perfect combination. It was a light environment and the classes seemed to fly by quickly. We had almost 20 students, but they both managed to give us all personal attention when needed - which was a plus.

    I entered this course to better understand how data works, how to understand data and pull key insights and i left with exactly that.

    Yes, the course is expensive, but if you actually implement what they're teaching you can learn quite a bit.

    BrainStation’s development program starts with a two week online portion that allows you move at your own pace as you are introduced to HTML/CSS. From there, the course dives directly into JavasScript where you learn the basics of the language and programming.

    The course is perfectly paced such that the assignments and the lectures coincide which allows for students to implement new techniques as soon as you learn them. React was my favorite part of the course, the instructors did a fantastic job of teaching design patterns and could explain the nuances within the language. The Node and Express part of the course gives you a very good base for back-end development. You are introduced to API’s and security design patterns which are very important.

    The instructors lead you through daily morning challenges as well as weekly white-boarding challenges as you prepare for future interviews. As you complete the program, you will have a few solid portfolio pieces which showcase your hard work.

    I recommend checking out Demo Day to see what the Capstone projects are all about. The experience overall was worth every penny.

    I just completed an online 10 week UI/UX Design course. Taking this BrainStation course was probably one of teh best moves I've made for my career development. I was previously working in the UI/UX field as a designer, and realized that I was lacking in some areas, specifically process. Although there was a lot of informtaion given in the course that I was previously familiar with, what I did learn has already proven to be tremendously benificial to my career development.

    My instructor brought lots of real world, industry examples and experiences to each class and presented the content in an easy to understand, yet thorough manner which made learning and following along easy and enjoyable.

    I would highly recommend ths course to anyone looking to switch careers, or mak a lateral move within the industry. It may become a little dry and slow at for designers like myself who were looking more to boost skills than learn from the ground up, but what I did learn will go with me throughout my career development and obtaining the certificate for the course will be a great asset to have as I proceed.

    Content 9/10

    Instructor 10/10

    Course overall 10/10

    Very happy I did this, I'll be looking at more BrainStation courses in the future.

We also had people involved in the field come to speak with us and asked questions about what they do and we visited workplaces of local companies to see what happens in the real world.

    - Teachers are succesful and experinced in the industry. Have a lot of up to date knowledge and valuable experince to share. 

    - Great oportunity to ask questions and hear different points of view which you don't normally get from online courses.

    - Give you chance to meet smart people, classmates and teachers.

    I have recently just completed the Full Time User Experience Diploma program at BrainStation Toronto. I had previously studied UX/UI design in a traditional college setting, but what I found I was missing were professional pieces for my portfolio, a thorough curriculum that followed industry standards, and a small class environment with assistance from teachers.

    BrainStation fulfilled all those needs for me that I was missing in the traditional college education experience. BrainStation gave me such a thorough understanding of what you need to know as a UX/UI designer, and what a day in the life would be in this role. The classroom setting was exceptional. There was always someone to offer assistance, whether I had a question or wanted feedback on something that I was working on. By the end of the program, I had multiple projects that I felt confident enough to showcase in my portfolio.

    The best part of BrainStation which I was not expecting to get out of the course was the sense of community. I always looked forward to going to class and seeing my friends, and have made connections which I will cherish for many years to come.

    I highly recommend BrainStation to anyone who is looking into a bootcamp style course.

    I have recently just completed the Diploma for Data Science in Toronto. 

    The course was very well structured, covered a range of programming languages needed for the Data Science jobs, the assignments were great as they pushed me to apply the material learnt throughout the week and at the end we had to present a capstone. 

    The capstone project for the DS program is introduced halfway through the program. It is up to the student to choose a topic and a project. The instructors held one-on-one meeting with the students to help us with our progress and provide any help as needed.

    The instructors were on point, with even teaching assistants to help throughout the course. It was a great experience learning from industry experts, getting real-life examples and learning how to apply it ourselves.

    The program pushed us to go to tech meetup and tech events (tickets were covered by the school), and it was a great way to learn how to network and make connections.

    Beside learning about programming languages and concepts, we also learnt how to give a presentation, how to get better at public speaking, how to network, how to make an impression.
    After the program ended, we got extra material to work through to help us get a job. As I finished last week's batch, I already have a meeting with a company's CEO for a potential position at their company.

    Brainstation community has been very supportive, helpful and understanding in the course of the 12 weeks. Best part? Their support does not end with the 12 weeks, but rather continues with job search, resume and cover letter. At the end, they even divided us into groups to make sure we stay in contact and keep each other motivated to continue growth and learning.

    I just completed the Full-Time Web Dev bootcamp at BrainStation and had a great experience. Over the past couple of years I've tried to come home after a full time job and do some self learning and to be honest I got pretty far. It's hard to maintain that momentum though and after a while I began to get overwhelmed by not just the material but by the sheer number of hours I had to put in on top of doing my work.

    Enrolling at the bootcamp gave me the time to think solely about the material. The instructors were awesome in guiding me towards the right resources, being available to answer any questions, helping out with issues in my assignments/personal projects, and even just showing me what I didn't even know existed yet! 

    I'm back at my job that I left before BrainStation where I work as a technical recruiter. I have more knowledge and understanding of the field, technologies, and methodologies that I've been talking about with candidates and hiring managers for the past few years! I also have a few awesome side projects that I've been working on, including one that's being used by the marketing team at work :)

    Honestly, there's a lot of self motivated learning required not just here but at any bootcamp. But with the right attitude, a solid plan, and great googling ability (:p) completing the web dev program at BrainStation could be the start of a great new chapter in your story.

    I am surprised with how much I was able to learn in 12 weeks. The class was challenging. We learned skills that I feel are practical and applicable.

I would absolutely recommend this program to those who want to shift their career to working with data. 

    I found that the career assistance and guidance in the program to be particularly valuable.

    As a recent graduate, I would recommend this program to anyone who is interested in creating modern web applications and developing custom APIs using frameworks, such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React, and Node. This 12-week program is indeed intensive and challenging. It is designed for those who are extremely passionate about learning and developing their skills.

    I personally enjoyed every single day of classes led by excellent educators, especially the lead educator, Jonathan Bluks. What helped me the most was the highly organized teaching plan. It was easy for me to be prepared for each class by following weekly schedules, including lectures, labs, demos, quizzes, white-boardings, and projects. It was also great that I had the opportunity to participate in pair-programming, collaborative, and hackathon projects. In addition to all these positive factors, the building, located near the Waterfront Station, with its unique, bright and inspiring design full of lovely plants helped me to stay motivated, commute easily, enjoy my lunch break by the water, study well, and achieve my goals.

    I've taken both their Digital Marketing and SEO. Their Digital Marketing was outstanding. The instructor was informative from a personal and professional level. She was keen on making sure we were all in the right direction. My group was struggling to find a focus in our project, but we all managed thanks to her guidance. 

    Similar experience with my SEO instructor. He was keen on making sure I was doing fine and actually doing things properly. He gave constructive feedback that helped me navigate around my organization's problems.

    If I could have them as instructors for the other 2 courses I want to learn, I would. They were phenomenal. I'm sure the other students felt the same way too.

    I feel more confident and ready after being mentored by them on these courses. Looking forward to taking more!

    So I just recently graduated from the UX Design program in Vancouver, and what can I say, what a fantastic experience! To start, the campus was gorgeous, well-lit, and had lots of natural light. The BrainStation staff were always super approachable and really friendly. It's located at a great spot in Downtown Vancouver, so lots of good food options, and really accessbible by Canada Line.

    In terms of the how I found the experience, I would say having done a "bootcamp" at Lighthouse Labs for Web Development gave me a leg up in terms of how exhausting it is to learn so much information in a compressed amount of time. In my opinion, to get the most out of any "bootcamp", you really need to commit 118% of your life to it for the duration; I didn't really feel like I had much cognitive capacity to think about what was going in other aspects of my life. Finding that balance so you don't go crazy is extremely important, so maintaining some physical activity and getting enough sleep is crucial (admittedly, I went from working out 3x a week to 1x at best).

    In terms of how the academic work was structured, you will have lots of projects non-stop through the program that build upon each other like lego. Also, these projects often support what you will work on in the subsequent stage of your Capstone project (which is ultimately what you'll be showing on Demo Day). 

    Coming out of the program, I definitely felt very prepared to handle a role as a (Junior) Product / UX-UI Designer, and highly recommend looking at BrainStation for your digital skills training needs

    The course is comprehensive, fully loaded, educator-led and an excellent deep dive into Data Science, Machine Learning, Python, and the many toolkits and techniques required to start a Data Science career. 

    However, it is important to note that this is course designed for highly motivated students who are prepared to dedicate themselves 120% to the course content, challenges, and tough weekly assignments for the entire period. The educators were very knowledgeable and were extremely capable in switching between highly academic subjects to real world worked examples. Daily Python code-alongs and challenges kept all students fluid in the learning by doing, and learning by making mistakes. The course material was well structured, building up the knowledge over time. An unexpected bonus was that our student cohort was quite diverse but became tight-knit during the three months and this led to additional knowledge sharing and problem solving approaches amongst us. 

    BrainStation's overall approach was multi-dimensional and holistic.... we learned Data Science, but this was also complemented with learning to present our technical results, visits to other Tech firms and even a 1-day internal hackathon to help us understand how to work with UX/UI designers and Web developers. I feel capable to take on any new Data Science challenges in the next phase of my career. 

    I would recommend the course to anyone who seriously intends to transition to a Data Science career. Full accessibility to experienced educators and technical environments always beats any number of hours of online videos.

    My experience at BrainStation has been life changing and eye-opening to say the least. I went in to the program with little to no knowledge about how to code. My experience with coding dates back to the HTML only days and Geocities where I taught myself a little bit of coding during that time and that's it. 

    After going through the program it blows my mind every time I think about how much I have been able to learn in such a short time. The program is structured just right where each week's lesson is applied in the weekly 'sprints' of each project. I was part of the full-time Full Stack Web Development dimploma program from Spring 2019.

    Let's talk about the pros first...

    I did a campus tour at each BootCamp in the area and the one thing that attracted me to BrainStation is the fact that it is part of Konrad Group, one of big tech consulting firms in the GTA. They teach all the best practices and coding policies also used by their coders so you can be sure that you are learning the industry best practices in the process. 

    The instructors and TA's are absolutely phenomenal, with a wealth of knowledge from the industry. The assistant instructor is an actual Konrad Group employee and the main instructor comes with decades of coding experience in several languages. The TA's are from previous cohorts who have been through what the current cohort is going through. 

    What I specially liked was that the material was always current, considering how quickly the coding world evolves. 

    Now lets talk about the cons...

    During our cohort, they missed out on some key teaching points that, from our tech tours seemed to be important for a Junior Web Dev.

    • How to Test Code
    • Deeper knowledge about Database
    • How to Deploy your project
    • Working in a group and cross-team environment

    We got a brief lesson about how to use Database, Deploy code, work in a group (second last project), and work with the other departments just like the real world. They definitely need to spend a few more days on the ones mentioned above, but then again there is only so much time in the 12-weeks.

    Some words of advice...

    Don't worry too much about HTML and CSS. They are pretty easy, but definitely try to understand Functions and For Loops as much as you can before your program starts. That is the basic of any JS framework. As long as you understand those two things, you will be fine. The course is jam packed and will go by faster than you can take it all on. Don't worry if you are not really able to understand the nitty gritty of the material. Just try to grasp the key concepts and spend the rest of your free time if you have any on what you didn't get. Otherwise, you will fall behind. Missing even 1-day is a lot.

    Go in knowing that you will be MIA from your friends and family for the next 3 months of the program. You might have a handful of weekends to yourself but otherwise you will just be too busy with each sprint.

    Otherwise all I can say is that you will come out of it loving the program and becoming really good friends with your classmates. You are taking a huge leap in making going through a Career Transformation and spending this kind of money on the program. I for one do not have any regrets. It is scary but exciting at the same time. 

    BrainStation has a great staff on hand during and after the program where they will do what they can to help find a job. They have a big group of alumni as well as well. The frameworks they teach are current so you won't feel out of place when you are done the program.

    I've always had an interest in website design and development, and I've had the opportunity to develop basic skills in my career. However, our tech needs had become greater and I knew I needed some more hands-on education, but with a full-time job, it was difficult to find the right kind of training. BrainStation was the best decision I ever made. Their part-time program made it easy to attend the classes after work once a week, and their support was incredible throughout the whole process. Each week felt very intense, and we learned a lot despite it being a part-time program - way more than just the basic skills. It was hard to believe that by the end of 10 weeks I was able to code a full website from scratch, but I did and loved every minute of it! 

    The instructor was amazing - he was clearly experienced in both the subject matter and how to teach, and made every topic feel approachable. He intuitively seemed to understand what concepts the class needed more time on, and was able to be flexible, sometimes introducing concepts typically outside the scope of the course when we seemed ready to try a more advanced topic. Having support not just during class but also available online in between classes made it feel like we had way more class time than we actually did. 

    The campus was located in the heart of the Toronto tech scene, so it felt like there were constant references to real-world examples of what companies were doing right down the street, which was super cool. 

    BrainStation also made it really easy to find a way to not only find a class to fit with my busy work schedule, but also the scholarship opportunities made it possible for me to attend and learn a new school that may have otherwise been out of reach. 

    I truly can't recommend BrainStation enough - I'm confident that any class you took there would result in a new skill set you can be sure to use in the tech industry today!

Thanks!
