    Perfect for Self-Paced Study

    As a recent university graduate who was used to online courses and wanted to dive into a new specialization, I'm having a wonderful time with this course!  The tutors, mentors, and advisors provide constant support.  Since it's generally self-paced, it works well especially to those who want to be able to learn a new skill efficiently.  I haven't received job assistance yet since I am still in the main program, but it looks promising!

    Not for Beginners with no experience

    I started the course very perfectly and was happy learning frontend and basics. When I started the Full Stack Immersion, my first mentor couldn't help me because he didn't know what he was talking about. It seems like he didn't know anything about javascript. It took a month for him to help me with a simple issue with one of the features of a simple project. My second mentor was better, but the material was poorly updated or explained. I had to book a call with my mentor to explain some ...

    CareerFoundry Full Stack Web Development

    Overall, it's a great class and I love my tutor and the mentor that I've been paired up with. They are super helpful and do everything they can to help you figure things out. 

    My only complaint is that a lot of the course work was written in 2020, and many of the dependencies you'll be using have been updated (several times) since then, making it difficult to use some the code that they give you in the course material. You often will have to go your own way to figure out how to re...

    My experience so far with CareerFoundry!

    I am genuinely excited to review my experience with CareerFoundry so far!
    Let me give a quick intro about myself. My name is Meenu and I am from India. I recently graduated with a Master's degree in Physics. During my penultimate year at university, I decided to change careers into UX design and quickly started researching short courses and bootcamps that I could afford at the time. Shortly after that, I read a medium article review of the UX design boot camp program at CareerFoundry ...

    Career Foundry Data Analyst Bootcamp

    I have completed the Data Analytics bootcamp and within a month I have secured a new position as data analyst!  I believe the course gives you a very solid foundation to build off of.  I would definitely suggest spending time researching on your own, and building your community on LinkedIn as there are so many people willing to teach and assist on there as well.  Career Foundry teaches you the fundamentals of how to do projects, start to finish, while executing presentations that are vis...

    Good foundations for career change

    The CF Data Analytics program equips anyone without any background on the field with a good foundation to further develop their skills in Excel, Tableau, SQL and Python. The theory and exercises on each chapter build on the previous ones so you get a cohesive result at the end of each section. Individual studying beyond the scope of this course is necessary to learn more complex  applications of the abovementioned skills. My mentor and tutor have been helpful and they reply quickly when ...

    Full Stack Web Development Bootcamp

    I've gotten through just over half the course. The first half was pretty good, I was absorbing lots of information and putting it into practice. But at the halfway point things got weird. The reading materials didn't cover the topic (React) very well, and the few (short) videos were basically just repeating what was in the text.

    I think if you have a good mentor and tutor, your experience will be positive. I haven't been so lucky, I went through 3 mentors who either disappeared, did...

    Great course overall

    In my opinion, the best thing about this boot camp was access to an experienced mentor to answer all my questions and give me valuable feedback on projects. I now have a solid number of case studies in my portfolio for projects that I worked on throughout the course. Overall, the course gave me a solid understanding of UI design processes and tools. However, I do wish that it had given me some exposure to basic graphic design techniques; knowing how to use tools like Photoshop would take...
