    Data Science Bootcamp

    I knew almost nothing about data science prior to starting the bootcamp, and felt considerable anxiety about switching my career from business to data. However, Daniel and Zain, our amazing educators, did everything to make this intimidating experience an enjoyable one! It also helped that I took the bootcamp in person and was very fortunate to have some of the most friendly and talented classmates who I am in regular contact with after graduation. I was very lucky to have found my first...

    Very Good Experience

    It's a 12 week course for web development. I had a past degree in comp sci from 8 years ago and did not put it to long term use, so I was very rusty. This course was extremely useful. It teaches HTML, CSS & SASS, Javascript with React, backend with NodeJS, learning about HTTPS and api calls, database management with mySQL, and numerous other things too. Be warned, it moves at a very fast pace! It's not a big deal for HTML and CSS, but it will be very very challenging once you get int...

    Great course to get started on Data Science

    This was a great course that started with basics of Python and then moved into Data Science concepts like visualization, data cleaning, pandas and machine learning. This has been extremely helpful in my current work where its extremely data heavy and these skill sets will really help me in discovering new facets

    UX Design Diploma

    As an interested person in UX Design, I enrolled in the BrainStation bootcamp after seeing an ad on Instagram.
    They immediately reached out to me and interviewed me to make sure that UX Design would be the right path for me (which I found a nice touch to make sure that I made the right decision).
    As a student, the experience was delightful, the instructors were knowledgeable and flexible and made it a really fun and fruitful experience. The projects were intriguing, the material ta...

    The course is well designed and is delivered entirely online in real-time. The cadance of class is once a week and 3 hours per course. In every class, there is some assignment assigned and there would be a break-out session during the class, allowing people to tackle the questions taught in class together.

    Data Analytics

    BrainStation is a great place to start if you want to get your foot in the door for Tech. They offer a wide range of programs and the instructors are extremely helpful. The classrooms are smaller which makes it much less intimidating to ask questions. The instructors are responsive outside of class that can help you with your homework. Highly recommend!
