    Amazing course!

    I was so happy when I heard that Brainstation had a course in Product Management. They also had a few different ways to take the course - I settled on the 5-week all day saturday choice. I liked this structure a lot as I was able to think about new ideas and work on my project throughout the week. The course content was great; would definitely recommend!

    SEO/SEM and Analytics Review

    I recently completed the SEO/SEM course. I enrolled in order to further my business' presence online, simply because I couldn't afford to hire someone to do it. Immediately after the first week I began to see tangible benefits of the course. Improved page rank, and in turn, traffic to my site.

    I think this course would be great for anyone looking to up their SEO/SEM game.. but especially beneficial to those who have their own website they need to promote. Being able to complete e...

    SEO/SEM - Life Changing!

    I did the fall/winter 2017 session of the SEO/SEM course. It challenged me to have a completely new perspective on the topics. The teachers were able to really engage with students one on one in the 'activity' time, which was particularily useful as they encouraged everyone to work on their personal projects. As a blogger, I found the SEO tools extremely useful and am currently working to implement all this new knowledge into my website!

    I would highly recommend this course to an...

    Positive experience and worth the investment

    Similar to other reviewers, I had attempted several times to learn programming on my own through various online resources (coursera, treehouse, and codecademy), but I struggled to devote the necessary time. Learning a programming language is similar to picking up any other foreign language, it's significantly easier if you are fully immersed in it. While there are plenty of self-taught programmers, I think this is where Wyncode and bootcamps, in general, offer an advantage. Upon enrolling ...

    Great Option for Self-Starters

    I had been thinking about attending a bootcamp for a year before I started, and to be honest, I was skeptical of doing so.  I didn’t see the value in quitting my job and spending over $10K to learn something I could teach myself via the internet.

    Eventually the frustration of only being able to set aside a few hours per week to learn got to me and I decided to attend Wyncode.  I immediately recognized the fast pace of the program, which was a plus for me.  You can’t really expect...

    Data Analytics

    This is a 10 week course designd for novice to intermediate data scientists. Each week is dedicated to a specific tool or theory. There is a lot of material to cover and quite frequently we ended up not being able to cover everything, whether it was the material itself or the in class exercises.

    In terms of the material though, it was very informative for me, especially learning about the Tableau tool. I wish there was more than one class to learn how to use it as we only had a b...

    iOS Development part time

    I took the iOS development course at Brainstation and it was a very interesting and informative experience. We covered the fundamentals of swift and also worked in Xcode. It’s was pretty content heavy and it was easy to fall behind especially with such a condensed schedule and as a result some content felt a bit rushed. But the instructors were always there to help out along the way when complications arose. 

    In the end I was able to take away a newfound knowle...

    Hi Jaleesa, 

    Thank you for your review, we're so glad that you found the iOS Development course informative. 

    We recommend that a student has familiarity with object-oriented programming before taking the iOS Development certificate course so that they can stay on-track with the topics covered. The iOS certificate course covers some more advanced topics in development, and is definitely challenging to ensure students are gaining industry-relevant, applicable skills.

    We're happy to hear that you found our Instructors helpful and that you finished the course with newfound knowledge of Swift fundamentals.

    Product Management

    I took the part time Product Management course to learn how agile teams really thrive. Having previously completed the full time UX program at BS I found quite a bit of overlap in curriculum. This is great to confirm my understanding of the material or for new students to get their feet wet. However I was looking for more in depth content. I can appreciate this is a 10 week 3h/week course and they can only go so far in depth for these areas. I suggest this course to anyone look...

    Product Management Review

    This is a great introduction course for those who have a guenuine interest in product management. This course sets the stage well to differentiate between product and project management, and introduces real work experience into the curriculum to give students a peek into a 'day in the life' of a product manager. Would definitley recommend to anyone looking to pursue produt management as a career, or who has an entrepreneurial spirit.
