    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.

    Coming to Wyncode is one of the best decisions I have ever made. As a prior military man, I can truly say that Wyncode Academy is a boot camp, and if you are not prepared you will not make it through the course.

    The Full-Stack Web Developer course is a 10-week program that teaches you Git, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React, Ruby, and Rails. The course is very intensive and not everyone will make it.

    I highly recommend, and  I can not state this enough, taking as many courses, on HTML, CSS, and Javascript, prior to starting the Wyncode. Codecademy is a good source for Wyncode prework, and it is free. I did just that, and I struggle a bit less than my peers. With that said, I still dedicated 12-16 hours a day, including weekends, to the program. 

    The course difficulty for Wyncode functions like a slope with the difficulty peaking in the middle, before starting to ease back down. Once you get back week 5, it starts to get easier, with the final 2 weeks being the easiest. 

    Overall, the course was great. The instructors were awesome. The level of difficulty is very high. The sense of comradery and social networking was priceless.

    Final Advice: Imposter syndrome is very real and there will be times you feel you are not good enough or perhaps you do not belong there. Just remember everyone starts at different levels. There were students who had Computer science and web development degrees. And to a lesser extent, we had a few students who were already web developers. Remember, the course is geared towards beginners, so rather than worry about everyone else, focus on improving your knowledge and skills. Believe me, even the people you may think are having an easy time with the course are also struggling.

    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 decided to come to Wyncode on December 28th, for a cohort that started January 22nd. To say this was an impulsive move is an understatement. The community, teachers, assistants, and classmates have been an invaluable addition to my life. I truly feel that I am making a positive move forward in my life. I'd recommend Wyncode to anyone, it was an amazing experience. The friends you'll make here will truly last a lifetime. 

    Thank you Andy, Don, Izzy, Angel, Bria, and finally Jo and Juha for putting together an amazing program.

    I've recently attended the Full Stack Web Development Bootcamp, and have nothing but the best things to say about Wyncode. Staff is extremely knowledgeable and everyone from founders to assistants are genuinely interested in your success. It is very demanding and although it seems that it is not for everyone, they do try to put you in the best of your game and will help you in every step of the way.... put in your time and effort and you will not be disappointed.

    Wyncode was everything I expected plus MORE. Andy is the best coding instructor I have ever had. I learned more in my 10 weeks at Wyncode than I did as an undergraduate who completed a bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering. I'm excited to share that I am 100% confident I will be an asset to any company from here on out. Wyncode was life transforming. Before coming here, I really considered not pursuing a field in tech because of how difficult the tech interviews were. Wyncode has given me a new family, lifelong friends, a lifelong network and invaluable skills that I hope to repay to future Wyncoders by lending them a hand when they need mentoring and job references.

    I really like the way the main instructor explained new material, suggested how to make improvements and how to succeed. I also like stand-ups because you can see that everyone has particular obstacles and I felt s great support after them. The job support team plays a very important role after you graduate.

Thanks!
