    Greate course

    I've finished course "Full-stack web developer" recently. I was great experience for me and I got a lot of information. The course is well-design and you develop real project. As a result you can see your work in real life. Nevertheless, this course assumes that you should learn detailed information by yourself. I mean, that the course gives you only base knowledge and you should be prepared work alone in some cases. My mentor was qualified and helped me a lot.

    Not for beginners and lack of real material.

    If you are beginner in the field please avoid this UX designer course or you are in for a bad time. No previous experience necessary? That's not true at all!

    The first section asks you to write a proposal to a company including an analysis, timeframe and pricing. Sounds great? Well, don't expect to get any help or material relating to how to write a real project proposal. In fact, the majority of the material was completely irrelevant to the task and the little help you g...

    Learned a lot.

    I am finishing up the course and wanted to share my experience with the program. I initially decided to go with CareerFoundry because of the cost - for the money, there isn't a comparable online bootcamp that offers one on one mentorship and teaches full stack web development. I also didn't know if I wanted to (or even had the ability to) code and potentially pursue a career in it, so this was a perfect entry point.

    In the beginning, I didn't know anyth...

    Well worth the investment!

    CareerFoundry's UX program is challenging and really pushes students to learn the ins and outs of UX while creating great work. Each lesson has vital and helpful information, but my favorite part of the program is being paired with a mentor. Unlike other online programs I've gone through, the mentor/mentee aspect of this one really helps to make sure you understand the concept/fundamentals before moving onto the next section.

    If you're looking to break into the field ...

    A lot of work!

    This course is a lot of work! Be prepared for 6 months of doing nothing but going to work FT and working on this class in every other spare moment. This course takes you through every step of what it is like to be a freelance UX designer - your mentor acts like your client for some assigments. Most of the reading assigments were helpful, some of the links/processes need to be updated. On average you are supposed to spend 10-15 hours per week on 5 assigments (or one module). Most of th...

    Best way to learn UX online by far!

    I found UX through my current career as a full time composer in Los Angeles. There aren't many people bridging the two worlds so I began meeting with a UX designer locally and got really inspired by my meetings with him. I also attended UX boot camps and began reading books.

    After spending  a month searching for an online UX design course, I finally found an article written by CF's founder on a UX blog which totally blew me away. The way he decoded and demy...

    Probably the best way how to start your career in UX design

    There are three ways how to learn a new tool / skill - dig and learn it by yourself, study at a school / university, find an intense course that focuses on explaining one theme that interests you the most. 

    A year ago I realised that I am a great graphic designer and media artist but to make good money with it I need to jump to a next level. Taking into account my skills in design, digital media, research and writing I decided to learn UX Design.

    A fantastic option for those wanting a career change

    I chose Career Foundry to make the change from working as a healthcare professional to become a User Experience Designer.  Taking the UX design course has enabled me to build a great foundational set of skills and knowledge with which to start my new career.  I had no prior knowledge of UX design before starting the course, and although it was challenging at times, I was able to successfully complete the course.  My mentor was brilliant, really supportive and always gav...

    highly recommended

    When I decided to become a Web Developer I tried many online tutorials and books without success.

    The problem was that I was jumping from one tutorial to another without following a path or a defined objective.

    Not only CareerFoundry gave me a defined path that starts from the basics up to advanced programming, but I was also assisted by a mentor which is the CareerFoundry most precious feature.

    The mentor was always present to explain compl...

    Would highly recommend - Gave me a great foundation to start building my own projects

    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 additio...
