    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!

    I can't say enough good things about Brain Station. While it is expensive, you do get your money's worth. The entire staff is very dedicated to making sure you are doing well, and absorbing the content. The instructors and TA's are always there to answer your questions.

    The building is really nice and modern. The tech talks and office tours of nearby business' were very interesting. Demo Day was a great way to meet potential employers.

    The course content was great. We learned so much over the 3 months. It can be intimidating to learn so much in such a short time, but the instructor did an excellent job conveying everything in a way we could understand. 

    Fantastic!

    Summary:

    -Teaches you how to learn at an accelerated pace and for immediate implementation

    -Industry Relevant Hard Skills

    -Soft Skills to work in agile, collaborative environments

    -Amazing Career support and coaching

    -An approachable and friendly team

    Learning Highlight: They have an in-house hack-a-thon building on the skills of UX, Data Science and Web Dev allowing for real-world experience in collaboration across teams

    BrainStation is a learning experience like no other. Key strengths include developing and implementing a curriculum that allows the student to maximize their 12 weeks of learning. 

    As a student, you are expected to learn and execute at an accelerated pace versus many of the traditional learning environments. The BrainStation education team supports and coaches you on this journey. Learning how to learn quickly and execute has been discussed as one of the most important skills for future proofing your career and would highly recommend this program on that basis, in addition, they provide excellent development of UX/UI skills that are relevant and marketable. 

    The industry partnerships, demo day and post-course support allow alumni to feel supported and a sense community as they enter the job market. 

    Lastly, classes are diverse and come from eclectic backgrounds creating a rich environment to formulate different ideas and discuss a variety of opinions. In UX, I am not sure there is a more important skill.

    Attending BrainStation is one of the best decisions I've ever made. I was a bit nervous going into it -As I was new immigrant. But the community is warm, supportive and very welcoming.

    My coding journey with BrainStation began when I enrolled in their Winter jan 2019 Diploma in Full time web Development. Before attending BrainStation, I had to spent many hours assessing other courses and bootcamps in the city. Although they all seemed qualified in their own right, I decided BrainStation was the best fit for what I wanted out of my education and career.

    The instructors did an amazing job at making the classes engaging yet challenging, and they also managed to keep the learning environment relaxed and fun. 

    The bootcamp is very well structured in terms of learning and instructors availability, which enables you to learn fast without feeling overwhelmed.

    I had a blast doing the bootcamp, had a blast working on the assignments and discovering my new passion for web development. I would 100% recommend the courses at BrainStation to anyone who is hoping to build skills in the field of internet and technology.

    Going to BrainStation was one of the best decisions I've made in terms of my carrer. It allowed me to transition into a new industry with the confidence to find a job after graduation. BrainStation also does a great job putting you in situations where you can build your network in the industry. From your classmates/educators, to industry events, to guest speakers, it really helps you establish a network that you'll need post-grad.

    I'm so happy I chose to take the UX/UI Diploma program at BrainStation. Prior to starting the program I was coming from an industry that is completely unrelated to tech (performing arts, event managing, and matchmaking) and was hardly tech savvy. The program allowed me to fully immerse myself in this new field, and I feel like I've come out the other side of it with a solid set of skills and tools that I can take forward into this new career. It also instilled confidence in me both with the tranferable skills I already had from my previous industries, and the new technical skills I learned during the course.

    I really enjoyed my course learning the basics of data analytics that covered multiple topics including Excel/Google Sheets, SQL, and Tableu. The teacher was great explaining topics in a digestable way and we even had a TA that could come around for more personalized support during class. Additionally, the homework assigments helped me practice and remember what I learned in class.

    Insane.

    That was the only word I could think of as I learned more about the school. I thought to myself that there is no way that a person like myself would ever learn so much information in such a short amount of time. Sure, I had a background in Computer Networking, but I did not feel that having such a background would help me as much. Fast-forward 3 months later, I am now confident in building a web application from scratch. From creating the look I was going for on the front-end to the overall functionality and communication on the back-end.

    I have nothing but the utmost respect for the entire BrainStation team and I cannot thank them enough for the most amazing educational experience I’ve ever had. The one thing that I valued the most was that I felt like an actual human-being as opposed to just some other student with a number attached to my profile. You are surrounded by people that are there to help you grow, whether it be the instructor, classmates or even people from a different program. During school I would always feel challenged and frustrated at a certain concept that I just would not understand, but as time passed, that feeling turned more into a sense of accomplishment.

    If you are someone who is looking for a quick career change (and I really mean quick), BrainStation is the place to go.

    Recently finished up the 10-week part-time digital marketing course at Brainstation's Toronto location from January to March 2019, on Mondays from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm.

    I currently work full-time in the hospitality industry however have a bachelor's degree in Marketing and Communications and am looking to pursue an opportunity in digital marketing and advertising. I have worked in the industry before as a content creator and social media manager, but up until now all of my digital marketing techniques have been self taught which is why I chose to enroll in my first brainstation course.

    My favourite thing about the part-time digital marketing course is that it is not too intensive... if you approach it the right way. Review the course content each week before class, complete your homework and you will be fine. Every week is focused on a different digital marketing technique and then you are sent home with a mini assignment that is extremely relevant to the final project (which is a hypothetical digital marketing campaign). Completing these assignments allows you to chisel away at the final project, week by week.

    The course instructors contributed to my overall experience as well. Both Jenna Kellner and Hailey Smith are extremely knowledgeable and have a lot of experience in the digital marketing industry. Their own expertise combined with the course content made it extremely easy to grasp each weekly concept. They also stuck around after class each week to answer any questions which was extremely helpful.

    As mentioned earlier, the course curriculum revolves around different digital marketing techniques including content & SEO, paid advertising & SEM, analytics and measurements, social media management, paid social media advertising and e-mail marketing. These techniques were extremely helpful as it is information that is not traditionally taught in university. I find that a university degree paired with a couple Brainstation certificates is what will set you up for success in the industry that you're looking to grow in or break into.

    Although I've only been done my course for a couple weeks, I've noticed that being associated with the Brainstation brand has already increased my value to potential employers. I'm currently interviewing at a firm and the opportunity arose because the hiring manager knew about Brainstation and was impressed with my enrollment in the digital marketing course. Furthermore, I feel like being in the Brainstation network is extremely beneficial as you are introduced to so many students and industry professionals who are always available for guidance and even collaboration.

    In conclusion, I recommend this course for anyone who is looking for an intro into the digital marketing industry. Thankfully, Brainstation offers more tailored courses if you're looking to master the techniques introduced in this course. A couple things that I would recommend to anyone looking to enroll:
    1) Be prepared to use Slack as your main method of communication with students and instructors. It can be a bit confusing at first.
    2) Don't skip class unless you really have to. Everything is covered in the slides however instructors provide a lot of personal insight that is very useful.
    3) The final project is completed in groups. Don't be alarmed if some group members don't pull their weight. Use it as an opportunity to master your craft instead.

    Took the 5-week Part Time in-class course at the Vancouver location. February - March 2019, and it was Mondays and Wednesday nights 6:30 - 9:30 pm. 

    I work full-time at a fin-tech startup in a relatively new role in customer analytics. I chose to take this course to upgrade my skillset. Prior to the course, all of my analytics were completed in excel, and in a fashion I describe as "scotch tape and glue". It worked, but it wasn't pretty. Going into this course, I had nowhere but up to go. At my organization, I had the benefit of coming from a Support role, so I know the product and customer configuration very well. This was also a reason my company chose to "promote from within" instead of hiring an experienced data analyst. 

    I found the pace of this course VERY fast. The course content covered a wide breadth of material, and each individual class had a lot of content. A class would go from introducing a concept and move into intermediate to advanced application of it by the end. I spent 6 hours in class during the course, and just as much time or more outside of the class solidifying the concepts. I did wish there had been more practical examples to take away as practice. I made do by bringing in datasets from my workplace to practice new learnings. 

    I found the content of this course VERY relevant and I felt that I could show up to work the next day and implement a brand new skill into my workday. In fact, week one we covered advanced excel. I was asked to do a new customer analyses on the Thursday after my class, and I was able to bring in new Excel functions I had learned the night prior. Week two we learned about database structure, week 3 SQL -- during this exact timeframe, I was being onboarded with access to our own company's database analytics tool. It was excellent timing to be able to learn theory about structure and querying, and then to turn around and practice with a real, live database. 

    The instructor was my least favourite part about this course. I did not get the impression she was overly comfortable and fluent with the slide deck. I wish she had brought in more personal / case study examples or provided extra practice work like I mentioned above. If she was demonstating a new function or query, she made it up on the spot instead of having thought of an interesting example, with an interesting mock dataset. All in all, it seemed to be a lack of motivation to go above and beyond as an instructor for this course. 

    What I really liked about BrainStation in particular was the community aspect - there were numerous interesting events going on in their shared space in the building throughout the course. I attended their Graduate Demo Day event, and a Women in Tech panel, both were quite enjoyable and were great spaces for engaging discussion. 

    Lastly, the BrainStation name is very well respected. As soon as I put up the course on my LinkedIn, I started appearing in more searches weekly by recruiters and have had a greater amount of cold reach outs by recruiters than ever before. Sweet! 

    All in all, this course kick started an exciting learning path in data analytics. It set some really good foundations that I can now go and develop the tools that will be most meaningful for me. Personally, I will be furthering my development in the following areas: SQL querying and better general knowledge of my own company's database (need to know what I need to pull, how to find it, how to pull it, how to aggregate it), visualizing data in clear and meaningful ways which can be delivered to key stakeholders internally and with customers.

    I took the Digital Marketing Course at BrainStation from January 2019 to March 2019. This 10 week course was awesome!

    I learned so much in three months - the material covered was very detailed and we were placed in groups of 3-4 and given a client to complete a full marketing plan for as the final project.

    The instructors gave detailed feedback and were always open to answer any questions! Both instructors were highly educated and provided real life examples when it came to case studies and/or examples.

    As someone who has been extremely interested in Digital Marketing, I would definitely recommend taking this course as an introduction.

    The SEM and SEO chapters of the course were the most difficult content to grasp, but our instructors made sure to go over them in extreme detail and allow us to practice using a test account.

    The course itself is a little pricey, so make sure you are 100% committed to attending the classes before you register. Missing a week can be critical in your success in the course.

    Thanks BrainStation!

    I recently finished the Part-Time Web Development course at BrainStation's Toronto campus, and I was pleasantly surprised by my experience. Going into the 10-week course, I had been dabbling in programming languages as a hobby for several months prior. I had begun to consider web development as a career, but was becoming quite lost and overwhelmed in my attempts to educate myself, despite the vast amount of online resources. I realized that if I wanted to take web dev seriously, I would learn best in a classroom setting with industry professionals, and BrainStation certainly met my expectations.

    I spent several weeks researching the different coding "bootcamps" around Toronto, before ultimately deciding on BrainStation. After expressing interest through the BrainStation website, a learning advisor very quickly reached out to me by phone, and answered every and any question I had about the course. That, and the combination of a beautiful, centrally located campus with ample amenities, to the professional and prompt communication between myself and the campus staff, I knew I was making a good decision. 

    Going into the course I knew the basics of HTML and CSS, which are the two programming languages the course covers, but the course is designed for people who are absolute beginners and know nothing about web development. I still think that if you are familiar with the basics of web development, you would still benefit from the course as the foundational concepts of HTML and CSS are taught in a very approachable way and I found it to be a good refresher for myself before moving onto the more advanced concepts.

    The class was relatively small, about 20 people or so, and as a result we had a lot of opportunity to ask questions and seek help. Our instructor, Dan, and our TA, Ishan, were absolutely amazing. Dan is clearly an experienced professional in the industry, and explained and showed us concepts in a really thoughtful way and at no point did I feel overwhelmed by the content. He was quick to explain why each thing we were learning was relevant, and I did not feel that we were being taught any "fluff" content or things that weren't relevant to my learning goals. 

    Ultimately, I went from knowing the bare minimum about web development, to being able to make a website that not only worked, but also looked good. I felt very accomplished by what I was able to do by the end of the course and I feel confident in saying that taking this course is one of the best, if not the absolute best way to get your foot in the door for a career in web development, or if you are just looking to expand your skills portfolio or simply to learn something new. I am planning on returning to BrainStation to take the full time web development course, and I am both excited and eager to learn more from this amazing academy.

    This course was extremely insightful. Our instructors Laura and Fran made the course very hands on, interesting and collaborative. Although it was online course, the instructors and BrainStation did an amazing job at making it as close to an in-class learning experience as possible. We worked in groups in almost every class to apply the skills and knowledge we were learning to real life examples and went through them as a class with realtime feedback from instructors. We also had a final project, for which we were put into groups early on. At the end of each class, we had time to apply the piece we learned in class that day, to our final project. This helped kdeepen the understanding of thet material further and also keep on top of the lessons.

    Would highly recommend this course if you are looking to enhance your skills in all sorts of paid social media. The instructors are experts in the industry, extremely helpful, full of energy and passionate about what they do.

    I have nothing but positive things to say about BrainStation! I took Social Media Marketing and loved it.  The learning environment is dynamic and collaborative. We worked in groups to develop social media campaigns that mirrored real-world projects of the same nature. Our instructor, Francesca, was a social media marketing expert who taught us the skills we would need to succeed in this field. She was always available for questions, help and support.  I highly recommend this course and BrainStation for anyone who wants practical, hands-on experience that will prep them for the real world.

    My instructors Stewart and Tayber) were thorough and as comprehensive as possible. When asked for more critical and in-depth feedback, they were willing to oblige to make us better at our newly-learned skills.
    I found the course content to be reasonable (even less than expected), given that the parttime course was held once a week for 10 weeks. 
    The BrainStation community itself was relaxed and inclusive, I certainly didn't feel uncomfortable or pressured into any sort of "networking" that I wasn't ready for. Being an introvert, it's important for me to be able to come in and learn right away without small talk. BrainStation offers this environment. 
    I would recommend this course to a friend or colleague seeking advancement in their product management skills and knowledge, especially if they didn't have much time to devote to a full-time course.

    I took Brainstation’s part-time Web Dev course.

    For me BrainStation's Intro to Web Dev course seemed like a great option to dip my toes into the world of HTML and CSS. Taking a full-fledged coding bootcamp felt way to risky, given the fact that I have never coded/worked in the industry before.

    The course is geared towards people with little to no experience in coding, but I would say that a tiny bit of knowledge of HTML would probably be helpful in the beginning, but not entirely necessary, as the first couple of classes are dedicated to going over the basics.
     
    The course is taught by people currently working in the industry which allows them to be able to relate the content to real life examples from their day to day activities, in turn making the course feel much more grounded in reality.
     
    Each class has a hands-on project which I found to be key to quickly understand each concept covered throughout the "lecture". Instructors go over the projects to clarify any questions and are always available to help and guide through finding a solution if you are stuck.
     
    It has been remarkable to me to see how far I have gotten in just 10 weeks. I went from only knowing a few bits of HTML elements - but not well enough to create even a basic site - to having actually created a site to be used as my resume, it works well and looks professional, something that I wouldn't be embarrassed to show to others.

    At first I was a bit apprehensive about doing an online course, I thought it might be a bit impersonal, but the technology used for the Online Live programs at BrainStation broke down all the barriers I was worried about. I could interact with the teachers and the other students easily using breakout rooms, and any question I had that I didn't feel comfortable asking the entire class I could ask in Slack and one of the teachers would respond to it quickly so the flow of the class wasn't disrupted. 

    The teachers were so knowledgable about the content they were presenting, and provided real work experiences wherever they could. It felt like I was not only learning the content but also how its applied in the real world. 

    This course was thoroughly enjoyable and a great foundation for continued learning and I even feel comfortable applying to careers in the industry.

    I graduated recently from the part-time UI design course at BrainStation's Vancouver campus and I can say these ten weeks flew by amazingly quick! Before starting the program I had been juggling several online courses for UX/UI design, which wasn't something that was working for me, as I felt overwhelmed with the wealth of information on the web, and felt unsure if I was learning enough of the right concepts. I think that if you're somebody who thrives under a more structured learning environment, then BrainStation will definitely enable you to get to where you'd like to be. Despite coming from a background completely unrelated to computer science or design, and starting from basically zero, I finished the course with a great portfolio piece and a solid proficiency in programs like Sketch and InVision, which are industry standard tools used in today's companies. 

    The class was small (around 8 people) so you really get an intimate learning experience and lots of one-to-one time with the instructor, who was incredibly insightful and supportive. She makes an effort to touch base with all her students during each class and takes the time to help us through Slack if we ever need her outside of class. Each week's lesson is packed with information, but what I found most useful were the industry relevant anecdotes that Kelsey, our instructor, gave during her lessons.

    We learned about visual design, wireframing, and prototyping. The entire program is designed around the final project, which is something you start working on from Week 2. 

    I would strongly recommend BrainStation to anyone who's looking to dive into the field, kickstart a new career, or even reacquaint themselves with UI concepts relevant to today's rapidly evolving industry. The skills you pick up really gives you the confidence to go forward in the next steps in your design career.

    I made the decision to transition from being a Chef to UX late last year and after visiting a few different schools, decided on Brainstaion. Maybe the deciding factor was the beautiful building, but the staff also spent a lot (A LOT) of time talking to me and answering any questions I had. There were a few bumps in my onboarding process, so my advice would be to be super specific with what you need and when.  

    Once I was there, I absolutely loved my experience. The TAs were great and the lead instructor Alex was so knowledgeable and thoughful it was inspiring.  If you are task orienteed and a self starter you will have no problem with this course.  If you have trouble staying on task and focusing, prepare yourself for some sleepless nights.  

    You learn such a wealth of knowledge during the course but it doesn't end there, you have to work just as hard when it ends if you hope to get a job.  I recived an internship offer at a really great company 6 weeks after the course ended.  Brainstation will tell you it can take up to 3 months, but the reality is it all depends on how hard you work and how willing you are to hustle, get your portfolio together and put yourself out there.  

    My biggest complaint, and they already know this, is that students have limited access to the building on evenings and no access on weekends. Make sure you have a good home office setup before starting the course.  

    Overall, in ten weeks there are bound to be highs and lows but the reality is that I went from no experience in UX to landing a dream internship in 16 weeks total.  That is a massive shortcut compared to going back to college/ university.  I also made the connection for the internship through the Brainstation Alumni Slack channel. You can easily put yourself ahead of the game by reading a few books (the design of everyday things, the best interface is no interface) about design before the course starts to give yourself a foundation and prepare mentally.  If you are willing to put in the work and bet on yourself, you can succeed through a full time course at Brainstation, and it is an excellent option for making a complete career change.

    I've taken multiple professional development courses and Brainstation has by far been my favorite experience. Not only is the location convenient (steps from waterfront skytrain station), but the curriculum has always been very detailed. It's fast paced for sure, but the teachers are professionals in the industry and always seem to be willing to take extra time outside of class to make sure you're staying up to speed. The last class I took was for Data Analyst. As as a marketing professional myself, I had a lot to learn on the database side but I absolutely loved this course! Wish I could take it again to soak up even more learning! 

    My class was with Raymond and Angad, great duo, highly recommended!

    Prior to doing to Digital Marketing course at Brain Station I had been working in Marketing, but more in the traditional sphere. After the company I had worked for went bankrupt I found it hard to find a new job, as Digital Marketing had become more prominent, and I did not have the appropriate skill set. The time spent at Brain Station was great, going through the theory, talking to industry professionals, and really engaging in the applications neccessary to be successful. Luckily for me, in my final few weeks of classes I was in the interview process for a marketing role with a focus on digital, and was able to leverage the language and use what I had learned at Brain Station throughout the interviews and was fortunate the land the role a few days after presenting my final project.

    Would reccomend for those looking to sharpen their skills and gain a better understanding of the digital sphere.

    I took the full-time web development program at BrainStation and it was great.

    The instructors were absolutely incredible not just in their knowledge base, but in teaching the material. Honestly there are a lot of smart people out there that know the material but it's very hard to find a teacher that can convey it well. There was a point in my cohort where they wanted to bring a new instructor onboard and he went through one day where he was actually teaching. He was incredibly knowledgeable but was unable to convey the material to the students. A few students brought this up to the teaching staff and for the rest of the program, we stuck with the regular education team instead. That level of dedication to their product is definitely appreciated.

    Beyond that, I honestly did not expect the level of post graduation support that they provided. I half expected them to just throw you out into the world after the program ran its course. Instead, I was put in contact with a senior manager who set up recruiting events and provided support until I eventually found a position. And for the record, the first job I got after graduating was from one such event.

    One thing I would say though is that I wish the curriculum was a bit more thorough, but most of this I would strictly attribute to the timeframe and the nature of this kind of bootcamp in general and not BS itself. The current curriculum covers a wide breadth of topics by doesn't drill in in terms of depth.

    I would definitely recommend this program to anyone interested in trying to get into tech.

    I took the UX full-time course at BrainStation at the Toronto campus, graduating in March 2018.  Looking to pivot my career from accounting to UX/UI design, I felt that this course is what I needed for a solid kickstart.  It provided that foundational knowledge needed, with lectures on UX/UI design principles, technical tool skills, and general career advice.  The lead instructors were personalble, experienced, and knowledgable.  The TAs were also very helpful, as they had both taken the course before.  Everyone in the class was super supportive and collaborative.  Sure, you can learn UX/UI through online articles and individual learning, but the oppotunity to fully immerse yourself for 10 straight weeks is invaluable. Also, you have the opportunity to build your network in the field, be it your classmates, instructors, or the industry partners that BrainStation holds.  As with everything, what you put in will determine what you get out of it.  

    One thing about the course that could be improved is the depth of the lecture material.  I felt like some topics could've been covered more extensively.  That being said, I know 10 weeks is a short time to cram a lot of topics in.  You'll need to be diligent and dive deeper on your own with some topics (e.g. I don't come from a design background, so I had to do some individual deeper learning on topics like colour and typography).  Though there does allow a lot of free time for you to have one on one time with the instructors on things you'd like assistance on.

    Overall I had a positive experience, and would recommend the course if you're looking to break into the UX/UI design field.

    Attended this course with no prior knowledge or experience with tech or programming at all and was swept away at what I got out of it at the end of 10 weeks. Firstly, it was comforting that BrainStation interviewed every candidate to find out about their potential intentions of joining the course. For me, I wanted a career change and knew that web development was the path I wanted to pursue, and was lucky enough to be put in a cohort with 13 others, each with very diverse backgrounds and intentions. The course is designed to equip individuals with the relevant skills required to start a career as a junior web developer, which means to train your brain to function as a programmer, to be comfortable finding answers when in doubt instead of asking and getting what you want all the time - as technology is always changing and programmers need to be resourceful rather than being spoon fed. I quickly realized that I wasn't picking up the course content as quickly as I wanted to and was fortunate enough to have Jonathan Bluks as our lead instructor along with two of his TA's who facilitated the course content very well. They always provided just enough help to answer the core question, while giving enough leeway for my own personal growth, and I know for a fact that they feel more proud of students than the students themselves whenever anyone of us have a eureka moment (the hi5's are real, hard, and very genuine). The course content is also very relevant to what the industry is looking for, I found that to be especially true now that I'm applying for jobs myself, and it's great to see that whatever BrainStation taught has led to some pretty decent conversations with programmers and recruiters alike. Even if they require another technology package, it's still very easy to pick up with knowledge of with what was being taught in class.

    In addition, weekly assignments and a mid-course hackathon, along with a final individual project to showcase your personality and coding skills, provide enough starter projects and more importantly the skills required to be able to reflect on how you'll want to shape your career or build a web-app from scratch. Overall, as a graduate, my advise would be to think through your purpose of taking the course, make sure BrainStation is aware of your goals, always be humble and willing to learn instead of being prideful and resistant to change. Learning can be fun with your classmates as we all struggle together and are willing to voice out our problems to learn from each other. It was amazing how, at week 7/8 of 10, everyone thought to themselves somehow "Hey, I don't think I'm really good, but somehow I feel that I could actually do this and I know where to look for resources" and remembering how at the start we were all staring blankly at our screens not knowing how to start.

    Definitely recommend BrainStation to anyone looking for a full-time Web Development Bootcamp, their continued 12-week career guidance program shows that they're willing to go above and beyond to help land you a job after the course. Small tip: don't be put off by the price tag, they have a fair amount of scholarships and financial aid as well as flexible payment schemes. 

Thanks!
