    UX Design Online - 5 weeks

    I completed the five week intense UX design course. It was 7 hour webinars, 9:30-4:30 US time but 2:30-9:30pm for me in the U.K.

    Saturday classes were great for my schedule; I have a busy job so evenings don’t work for me, and I complete a professional qualification as well so I needed something I could complete quickly before moving on to those assignments.

    I loved the experience of being paired with a partner - I learned a lot more because I had a sounding board and someo...

    UX Design Course

     Coming from a non-design background, I found this course extremely helpful to gain a broad understanding of the field of UX design and learn new skills outside of my current day-to-day field of work. I found the principles of UX Design easily transferable to my work as an engineer as it taught me a number of key skills including how to get to the core of a problem and how to consider the end user needs in solving any problem. The instructors were extremely helpful and would answer any q...

    iOS Development: I Learned a LOT but Beginners Beware

    iOS Development is the 3rd course I’ve taken at BrainStation. First of all, their online live learning platform is very well done. The lessons, assignments, and other material are well organized and useful. Their courses are designed to be doable while working full-time - so the hours are generally at night or on the weekends.  Of my three courses, two were 6-9 PM on a weekday and one was 9:30-4:30 on Sundays. I found the Sunday course to be challenging, personally, as it made...

    UX Design at Brainstation - Online

    User experience design is a growing field dedicated to crafting compelling digital experiences for a multi-device ecosystem. The Course itself is more of an introductory level class to UX design, understanding research and UX tools - I found that it was more useful for someone that had some background in graphic design, tech (coding) or marketing. For myself - taking digital marketing in the past I did find the class really refreshing and our final project was really great for profession...

    Great if you wanna test.

    I took the course to systematize my knowledge and learn more about the ways of how things are done today in the industry.
    The instructors were amazing, funny and professional. They shared a lot of industry insides, showed a lot of modern tools and websites to expand the knowledge gathered during the lectures. The summary of my final project was very helpful and concise.

    Full-Stack Web Dev

    I graduated from Cohort 36 and had a great learning experience. The head instructor, Ernie, the TA's and support staff provided a great place to learn and grow as a new developer. It was obviously tough learning new skills in such a short time but I feel Wyncode has provided the education and resources to land a developer job in the near future. If you're willing to put in the work and have a great mindset Wyncode will be a rewarding experience. Keep coding and good luck.

    UX/UI Immersive Course

    My experience with Wyncode began before I knew I wanted to apply to their UX/UI program. I attended their one-day UX/UI introduction bootcamp. The introductory bootcamp helped answer many questions I had regarding the in and out of the career and what a day in the life of a UX designer actually consisted of- which led to my decision to register for the following cohort. Now, months later and an official graduate I can speak on the experience from start to end. From the start o...

    Not enough skills for the real world

    UX Bootcamps can work for some students. I would say students who come with very strong visual backgrounds, graphic designers, illustrators, industrial designers and such. Who want to further learn the ux process and enhance their careers. In my case, after dishing out 13k (an enormous amount of money), I walked out not knowing enough visual design. I felt like a good con artist, I can say design process couple of times and I had done 3-4 sprints. But when my employer asked me to use any...

    Data Science

    Data Science course was very interesting. Starts from the fundamentals of pandas then gets into the statistical theory concepts. The best part is being able to choose a data set that you're interested in to apply the techniques taught.

    Great experience

    I really enjoyed this course. I think they did a good job of covering the basic tools and skills someone would need to become a Data Scientist. This is also a great course of marketers like myself, who are looking to up our data skills and learn a bit more about data visualization. 

    This was the first online course I took with Brainstation and the format worked out well. It was over video so we were able to engage with each other and we could all talk to and have conversations abo...
