    Hard, intense, rewarding, meaningful, fun

    This Bootcamp was intense and pushed me in many ways, but it taught me so much and made me create things I had no idea I could do. My educators and peers were there as support throughout this journey which was so helpful. I have learnt so much about the industry and have met many amazing and talented people. Genuinely grateful for this entire experience and recommend this Bootcamp to anyone eager to learn a lot in a short amount of time in order to improve themselves and be successful in...

    Best Learning Experience by far!

    At first I was skeptical because there would be a lot of information and lessons taught within a very small timeframe. But I came to realize once I started my first week that the educators were all very nice and approachable.
    The lessons are broken down in a way that is easy to follow with very minor bumps (like learning Javascript for the first time). The bootcamp is very hands-on with the projects and each project is broken into sprints each week that corresponds to the specific les...

    Amazing!

    Great instructors, very human approach, extremely challenging at times, but definitely worth your time! Some projects seem impossible to produce in such a short time, but the educators really have our backs. One of the biggest takeaways from the bootcamp is definitely that programming is a TEAM SPORT, which was very eye-opening for me.

    Waste of money

    The BrainStation Python Course is the biggest grift on the internet.  The instructors were good but the syllabus was empty.  It was not worth the amount charged for it.  I felt they just took advantage of my lack of knowledge about what Python entails to sell a very substandard product.  They also claimed that there would be a complete collaborative Python Data project.  Spoiler alert:  That did not exist.

    I recommend this course for someone will little to no experience or an individual who worked in social. It is an excellent refresher program for those with some experience, and you will update your skills.

    I saw tremendous growth

    Before starting here I was familiar with html, css and JavaScript. I had also built a few express apps as well as some android apps with Java. I thought I would learn some new libraries and tools but it was so much more than that. I grew tremendously as a developer. I left with confidence that I know what I was doing and a bunch of experience working collaboratively that I would have never got otherwise. I truly think it’s worth attending if you’re looking to make the jump into web devel...

    Wonderful!

    Aadil Khan was a great instructor. He helped me understand the theoretical part of UX design in a manner that was easy to comprehend given I had little experience in UX. He was engaging and paced himself very well according to the needs of the students (from what I was able to tell). The breakout sessions were great and I loved that we got the opportunity to work on a project that allowed us to apply all the design principles.

    My journey at the BrainStation Vancouver downtown campus:
