    Fun & Inspiring!

    I really enjoyed my course at BrainStation (Data Analytics) - the instructors we approachable and offered their "real world" scenarios throughout the semester. Immensely helpful during the final project phase as they were alway readily available via slack.

    Wish I did it sooner

    The Data Analytics class helped me better understand how data is queried. I now can query my own data at work, have more meaningful concerstaions with my developers, and build amazing visualizations to help tell a story.

    Amazing!

    I love the experience. The profs were all very understanding and knowledgeable, and I learned a lot. My favourite part was being able to learn in person and create a network with other likeminded individuals.

    A Wholesome Experience

    I didn't realise when I first got into this course, that there would be so much I would gain from it. The tutors were awesome and had a great way of teaching that you don't realise the information actually stays with you. I found the experience refreshing and so rewarding. With so many new skills learnt from the UX Design course, I feel it has helped prepare me for the future.

    Review of Digital Marketing Course at BrainStation

    My favorite part of this course was the real-world examples given by the instructors.  It really helped create context for the lessons so I could learn not just the theory but the application.

    Digital Marketing BootCamp

    This was a great class! The only feedback I would give is to have more hands-on experience with the software with the instructors or in an actually signed up and signed into account. I am hoping that after the class we are able to have help with job placement!

    Good bootcamp, tough market

    I graduated BrainStation's bootcamp in September 2022 and felt I was taught enough to teach myself the remaining fundamentals of front end web development. The 12 week window was too short to fit a true full stack bootcamp and backend suffered due to that. However, I did gain the skills to figure out the missing pieces post bootcamp.

    Sweeping, Energetic, Open-Minded,

    The course involved a lot of material. However, it would have helped me to have a syllabus with optional readings of books, articles, and such that would allow me to get even deeper to the subject. I also have not had much of a sense of networking/job advisory that I thought would be a part of this. But the teachers did a very good job of presenting the material in context.

    Fast paced, engaging overview of UX

    I took the UX Course (not bootcamp)
    This was a great 8-week condensed course that walks you through the principles and processes of User Experience Design.
    I had an existing understanding of UX and was hoping to round out some of my hard skills. This is not required but I felt that some familiarity with the content was helpful in getting the most out of the experience! 
    Being familiar with Figma at a high-level is also helpful - they teach you a bit but there is so much you can ...

    Digital Marketing Review

    The course was packed with tons of information and resources for each section. Both instructors have a lot of work experience and it shows in their examples, and the way they teach. I really enjoyed the course and would be willing to enroll in another, in the future. The final project was beneficial to my job, so that was useful and a nice way to show off the skills learned.
