    Empowering, Interactive, Introductory

    This was a very cool experience to go back to school and learn new skills. The content was very helpful and the final project helped us apply our new skills. It was be great to have more 1:1 time with the instructor. The class is introductory so it's very limited at only 8 weeks. It moves fast and you have to do a lot of work outside of class. Class was more helpful when we  got through all the slides and were able to ask questions while still having time to do the in-class activities. I...

    Intensive but great experience

    An intensive and exhausting but really enjoyable time is coming to an end and I have to say it was really empty. I was lucky with the class, there were relatively few of us and that was an advantage given the amount of material. The teaching team is very committed, the course is manageable but you have to do something. You have to see it as your full-time job and sit down in the evenings and do the assignments or recaps. The material starts at a certain level, but you can certainly catch...

    Great use of time

    Very intense 3 months where you learn a lot with tons of hands on practise, following a well structured course curriculum. 
    Educators are very helpful too. 

    I was lucky to get a BC government grant as unemployed. That said, I think the regular $16000 is very expensive.

    Learned so much more than expected

    I enjoyed my web development bootcamp at BrainStation so much. It was an amazing experience with clear explanations of the instructors for each topic and all the support from the TAs. The curriculum was well structured, I just needed to show up and absorb all I could without thinking about learning by myself during the whole process. The projects that we worked on each week always matched the subject we were learning and allowed us to apply our skills straight away. We also had a chance ...

    Excellent educators, good bootcamp structure, sub-optimal post-bootcamp career support


    As a recent graduate of the software engineering bootcamp, I can attest to the program's effectiveness in equipping students with the necessary skills for a career in tech. The educators were undoubtedly the highlight of the experience, demonstrating exceptional knowledge and a genuine passion for teaching. Their dedication and willingness to provide personalized assistance made complex concepts digestible and fostered a supportive learning environment.

The instructors were patient and always willing to help, creating a supportive atmosphere where I felt comfortable asking questions and seeking guidance.The hands-on approach made learning enjoyable and engaging.

    Incredible and intense experience

    I just completed the UX Design Bootcamp and I can share a few things from my experience:
    The environment is excellent, professional and friendly.
    The educators (Brad, Jamie and Josh) were amazing during the 12 weeks, always positive, supportive and giving good feedback.
    Still talking about the educators, I want to highlight when Jamie shared a schedule to help us better organize our work time. After that, I started creating schedules to manage my time better, and it was a game-c...

    Solid Curriculum and Instructors. I'd Do it Again!

    What an amazing experience.
    If you are prepared to put in a LOT of work then you will get a LOT out of it.
    The instructors are clearly all very passionate about design and best practices.
    I wish the bootcamp was longer truly, as I love design, learning in general and had such a lovely time.
    The emphasis on collaboration, storytelling and industry trends was really helpful with improving my creative mindset.
