    Definitely need a curriculum to follow in order to cover all that I would need before starting a career in full stack web development and CareerFoundry has done a great job in providing that. Also very generous in helping you finishing the course even if you need more time because of a tight schedule.

The curriculum is great and the support from mentors, tutors and student advisors is part of the reason i chose CF and they keep me on track and motivated. I still have a few months to go before i get to the Job Assistance portion but im looking forward to it.

    Career Foundry has been a great experience so far. I really enjoy working with my tutor and meeting with my mentor. I feel like I’m learning a lot and doing a lot of good work to build my portfolio and skill set. I am doing the program part time and working full time as a Pre-K teacher. Completing the course on my own time has been very helpful, I really enjoy the flexibility.

    I have had a very positive experience so far with CareerFoundry. I started the FullStack program in February with almost zero coding experience. My CF tutor has consistently provided specific, meaningful feedback on each task; his responses are so quick, usually in a couple hours. I've also had a supportive and engaging mentor who has talked at length about his professional experience in additional to offering constructive insights about my bigger achievement projects. 
    The curriculum is fast-paced for my experience level, but also includes everything I need to complete the exercises. The embedded videos are extra helpful for when I'm stuck. If I could make two changes, the first would be more opportunities to practice programming language syntax, but the instructors also share links for outside resources that meet this need. Second, the Slack community for peer support can be difficult to navigate. The CF staff do a lot to promote peer engagement, but I have to search a lot of Slack threads to find students who have posted about whichever task I need help completing; maybe a student discussion board linked to each relevant task would improve peer collaboration. 
    I would recommend CareerFoundry based on my experience so far.

    I choose Careerfoundry to start my UI journey because of the great ratings and reviews I read all over the internet and the possibility to get a voucher for this course from the Jobcenter. I was a little bit skeptical if this course would match my expectations but not only did it match them my expectations got surpassed. I am right now in the middle of this course and the way of learning is perfect for me. I really hope to increase my job chances but if they keep their promise I am optimistic that this was the perfect choice for me.

    Great to have joined this course. It was just what I needed as a beginner. All concepts explained in a very simplified way and the best part is the Tutor and mentor who guide and review your work to further improve it as per industry requirements. Highly recommend this one.

    The course content is great and very varied. Some of the instructions are not entirly clear however and can lead to confusion. Also, some of the provided datasets in the Python module are too large for a normal person's PC to process which leads to memory issues and ultimately delays progress with the course.

Thanks!
