    User Interface and User Experience (UI/UX) designers are increasingly needed on all development teams. They don’t just know how to use the tools of digital design and development, they understand the underlying principles of design and user experience. They understand the theory behind social design, usability, interaction, and know how to implement designs using modern tools and software. The UI/UX designer is user-centered and adds value to an organization by designing experiences that users want. They conduct research and produce useful personas, scenarios, and design sketches. They prototype and iterate designs until they produce user interfaces and interactions that are worthy of placement in their professional portfolio. The modern UI/UX developer knows how to achieve great results using Photoshop, Illustrator, CSS, and Sketch. The skills you will gain from this course will help you advance your career in UI/UX and make you an invaluable member of a modern development team. Technologies Learned:  UI and UX principles  Design Systems  CSS within a Framework  User Research and Personas  Component-based systems  Prototyping  Figma or Sketch  Apple UI Principles  Material Design The course is held over a 14-week period.

    Instructors were very smart and capable. They were always able to answer all of my questions and had great tips throughout the program.

    Other than the instructors, it's obvious that this is a new, untested program. The curriculum was really poorly designed, with significant portions copy/pasted from other websites without crediting/referencing the actual author (illegal). The flow of the classroom work was disjointed and there were constant problems with the wi-fi and classroom tech. All the employees were super nice, but it seemed like they didn't really know what to when someone asked them a question. Overall, it felt pretty amatuer. Just not ready for prime time yet.

    Would not recommend.

    Thank you for sharing your experience with Helio Training. We’re happy to hear that you found the instructors smart and capable. Helio is a relatively new program; we opened our doors in 2016. And although we’re proud of our coding bootcamps, we’re always looking to improve them. It’s
    unfortunate that the instructors did not give accurate representations of where the
    information came from throughout the course. We appreciate your feedback on this matter and will share it with our team as we continue to improve our software development courses.

    The course was good and provided opportunities to interact with classmates.  The individual project was very useful at the end in tying all of the class material together. The school provides teaching assistants as well as the instructor to assist you with questions.

    As part of the very first Helio Class, it was an experience for us all. There were a few hiccups with the direction of the curriculum, but overall it was a great experience. The instructors are great, very knowledgable with the latest industry trends and helpful making sure no one gets left behind. The student mentors on the other hand could use a little more guidance and motivation to interact and assist the students in the class better. The career placement assistance was a little too basic for me, and below my expectations.

    My only regret is that I wish the curriculum and program had been more structured and defined before the first class began.

    I took a part time course designed to teach full stack development in 14 weeks. This course isn’t for the faint of heart, or someone who isn’t going to dedicate themselves not only in the classroom but also to studying and practicing outside class hours. 
    However, if you put the time in, the course is a phenomenal tool in not only teaching you how to code but teaching you how to learn and teach yourself,  so you can keep expanding you knowledge even after the course has concluded. 
    I took the course to gain supplemental skills to help me further my current career in marketing automation, and not even a week after finishing the course I found practical application of the skills I learned in editing the scripts on one of our landing pages. 
    This course is a great stepping stone to first understanding front end and back end web app development, and the technologies used to create and join the two. It does require time and effort though, so don’t go and just expect it to be handed to you. The work and outside study ones tantamount to any students success.  

Thanks!
