    The best educational experience I've ever had on my life.

    I quit college to become a self-taught developer, but after 3 months of applying, I could not get a job, and I was lost and losing hope.

    I decided to attend BrainStation as my last resort, and that was the best decision I've ever taken. Not only was I able to become a better developer in every single sense, but I was also was able to make deep friendships and get back something that I lost. I have back my hope.

    The Brainstation curriculum is super strong, and the teachers a...

    Overall, a great experience

    Witnessing the progression in the quality of my projects from the first week to the last week of the boot camp was truly remarkable. The instructors demonstrated extensive knowledge of UX and stayed current with industry trends. I recommend this boot camp to anyone looking to enter the field of UX. While I can't speak extensively on job assistance as I've just graduated today, my overall experience has been excellent so far.

    BrainStation

    Coming in I must admit I was a bit skeptical of what the experience would be like, however BrainStation exceeded all my expectations. The curriculum was very challenging, I recommend brushing up on javascript skills before attending. There were people who were successful coming in not knowing anything but those with a bit of a background definitely had an advantage. The instructors were amazing and really wanted everyone to succeed and the TA's went out of their way to help those that we...

    Overall pleasant UX design boot camp experience!

    Today is our last day of boot camp. Overall, I would say I learned a lot. It was definitely effective in teaching us hard and soft skills required for the industry. I would say that there’s some things that could have been organized and orchestrated better, such as the order and due dates of certain assignments. There were moments when we were shuffling 3 assignments at once, and other moments which were very relaxed- it could have been spread out more effectively. The career matching af...

    I had a great time at BrainStation. The experiencing was challenging, which is a great way to prepare us for the industry.

    Great upskilling for people in tech

    The course is highly recommended for people who are interested in product development in general.

    I have read "The Lean Startup" by Eric Ries before, and was intrigued by those ideas for developing new products, especially in tech industry. Lean, MVP, validated learning, and finding Product-Market Fit are all amazing concepts, and here the course provides very well structured and detailed illustrations on these with updated tools including Figma, Google Analytics and ChatGPT.

    Data Analytics Review

    My experience in the data analytics course has been mostly positive. I would give the course a 3.5/5 in terms of my overall experience. The course content was helpful from an introductory lense, and there was a wide variety of topics covered. To get more value out of the course personally, I think I will need to practice solving more SQL queries via another Udemy course.

    We had 2 instructors who taught us data analytics, Calvin and Ramin. I think Ramin is a thoughtful and knowledg...
