    I started Career Foundry having done some free online tutorials in HTML, CSS & Ruby and having struggled though the Michael Hartl Ruby on Rails Tutorial not really understanding how things were put together. The structure of Career Foundry really motivated me to get through the course because after each lesson you have something to show for your work. The tutorials are clear, structured and as you progress through the course it prepares you for life after the tutorials. In addition you have a great knowledge of so many elements of web development by the end you really understand how everything is put together.

    I finished having built a personal portfolio site, e-commerce site that integrates with Stripe to process payments, learning about the bootstrap framework, github, triggering e-mails, creating a review system, form validations, user login, automated tests, the list goes on! and the most exciting part is that the foundation gives you the confidence to then go out and find a solution to a problem youself/for a new feature, so that if you've never done it before you know you'll be able to find a way.

    The mentoring part was a key element to speeding up learning and motivation. Without a mentor you might get stuck for hours looking on Stack Overflow for an answer, but your mentor can help breakdown a problem you face so that you fully understand how to overcome it much faster so that you can move on.

    I work as a Product Manager and Career Foundry has given me a great understanding of the day-to-day work of our Development team. In addition I am also tinkering away on my own projects, and am confident that my skills will help me test any business idea I have in the future much faster for for without the cost of needing to hire a developer at the very early stages! I am now able to build more complex features myself due to the great foundation from Career Foundry.

    Thank you!

    I'm someone who has more of a marketing background with some development experience, but not much. I'm currently taking the UX course and really enjoying it. The mentor experience is much better than I imagined. My mentor is great and super engaged. She gives me great feedback to start thinking like a UX professional.

    It's definitely a big committment and I'm struggling to keep up with the pace just a little bit with my full-time job, but it will pay off in the end. I'm hopeful that the course will help in my efforts to shift my career.

    Overall I'm glad I signed up for the course and I'm excited to continue learning about UX.

    When I first encountered with the course I was excited about their Mentor-driven and Project-driven approach to teaching. It felt like what I needed to be able to do an online course. Also the price was unbeatable, and still is I think. I do have some quite minor problems with the course, but at the bottum line, only with the CareerFoundry I was able to learn programming. 

    The biggest thing I was excited about was the mentoring part. It actually what made the difference for me. It was somebody that I could always ask questions, help me when I don't understand the material and the fact that I needed to "satisfy" someone was what kept me always motivated.

    Having said that, I was kind of dissapointed with my particular mentor. I thought he will push me outside of my box and the curriculum boundries, but it never happend. He never challanged me by his own. Another thing is that when ever I encountered with a big problem, instead of pushing me in the right direction, he just gave me the answer. At the moment, it was a great relief to see what was the right and professional way to do something, but as soon as I tried to do it by myself I realized I don't really remember/understood how he actually done that (it mostly happend in the weekly skype call, that's why I always prefred to communicate by messaging, which are always availabe as future references, but my mentor prefered to answer the big problems in the skype call). The thing is, my mentor has a vast knowledge and he is a really good teacher, just our communication wasn't perfect.

    The corriculum is really okay. The frontend part, is written in a fun and descreptive way which makes the learning really enjoyable. The backend part is no fun at all, mostly because it's way more technical and way more difficult. Naturally there's a lot of room for improvement in the lectures, but they are by no means in a bad shape.

    The CareerFoundry team is also really great. I had the chance to meet them in person more than once and they're really nice and helpful. They gave me great and valuable career advices which helped me a lot. 

    A new thing that was started at the middle of my course, so I didn't have the chance to take advantage of, was the Slack community. A place where you can talk with fellow students, the CF team and the mentors. There a student is able to ask all kind of questions. Actually I'm still using the Slack community even though I am long after graduating. 

    Overall, although it's not a perfect course and there's a lot of room for improvement, I really recommend this course to people who are looking for an affordable web dev course (online or not). I was actually able to take my first steps as a web developer in the industry after finishing the course, a thing that says a lot.

    My experience at CareerFoundry has been very great! Before the course I tried to teach myself web development. But I had a really hard time keeping myself motivated. So I looked into various options to learn coding properly. Compared to all the other online bootcamps out there CareerFoundry had the best price and still a very comprehensive curriculum. The course material covered the most important topics. My mentor helped me a lot when I wanted to learn more than what the actual course contained. 

    Throughout the course the CareerFoundry team has been really helpful and always there if I had any questions. Even after the course they were very supportive, helped me with my CV and forwarded job offers.

    I would recommend CareerFoundry to everyone who wants to get into web development, learn everything important to get started and have the skills and the support to find a job.

    I enjoyed my experience going thru the CF web development course. Before attending CF, I wasn’t too sure what kind of area of development I would like to specialize in. There are so many specialities, frameworks and languages out there-it can be confusing and overwhelming at first... I’m very happy I chose CF because they teach, in my opinion, a broad spectrum of the popular frameworks out there such as Bootstrap and Ruby on Rails - it really helped me understand the bigger picture of web dev. Now if only they cover mobile dev! :)

    I found I really enjoy the front end aspect of development, and thank CF for discovering that. Since it is self-paced they are really flexible with what you create as a project and the time frame it takes you. It’s also a pretty economical price, considering some other more intense options like Bloc and full-time online immersive type programs. However, CF is a good fit if you have yet to figure out what area of focus you want to delve into your tech career and you’re pressed on time due to a full time job, like myself. Their staff is extremely helpful and open to feedback as well (Blake was my student advisor). Overall, very positive experience throughout and I recommend their online course.

    Career Foundry's program is very comprehesive and thorough. I really enjoyed the way the lessons were setup and it was also challenging.

    CareerFoundry is one of the best UX/UI design programs online! The reason I chose it was mainly due to the time flexibility and opportunity for networking. They allow you to start whenever you're ready, and every student can go at their own pace. They give you a mentor, a tutor, another mentor for the job prep course, student advisors, and an entire Slack community so you can get to know other students. People also share a lot of resources there, especially for online job hunt/career-related events. Their lessons are pretty good too. They have links to helpful articles and video lessons sometimes too. Any questions I have outside of the lessons, I can ask my mentor (we have weekly video calls and I can Slack message him any time). Oh and my tutor always always gives me helpful articles to look at along with her feedback on my assignments.
    Overall, I'd say the program is very good!

    It was a good choice but challenging. Thanks to this course, I could get not only knowledge for the professional UX design, but also train myself in terms of being disciples.

    One thing that I really want to tell is that tutor is not always good. I met Carlo J.C.M. van der Pluijm as my tutor. He looked down me and ignored my words. So I asked a student advisor to change my tutor and they changed my tutor, who is really nice and professional.

    Overall, I highly recommended this course. Course material is also reliable and student's community is a huge network all around the world.

    The end of the course, You will have the option to choose 'job preparation course', which helps you prepare a resume, etc. All the process is well organised and prepared. Just bring your strong will.

    My time with Careerfoundry has been mainly positive. The structure of the overall course and transitions from each assignment (deliverable) is very organized and meaningful. Your assigned tutors are really a great resource to have. I will say that, as of today, about 80% done with the UX immersion course...I do not necessarily feel job ready. I do however feel I've gained a lot of valuable exposure and experience across many facets of UX and even UI. Yet I still personally feel I've got a ways to go before I find that genuine confidence to enter the job market, thats for sure! I will say, I do not necessarily agree with or rely on the time estimations for course work. In fact, I've spent a WHOLE LOT more time and dedication than they let off from the get go...which isn't a bad thing...but would have liked more transparency from the beggining to be honest.. As a complete rookie, this has been quite the challenge (to say the least) It's not easy stuff, and for the most part you're genuinely kind of on your own to keep up with the pace. I am grateful for the layout of the program and the support from both my tutor and mentor, but there's still leaps and bounds to overcome.. Progress never pefection...

Thanks!
