    Excellent Boot Camp! Superb Instructor! Exceptional Experience!

    Before I start off, I first want to say that this is my third bootcamp class within the last 7 years and jigsaw labs stands at the top in terms of quality and execution.  Jeff is a consummate instructor and he gave all of his students a high level of attention, knowledge of the information, and an uplifting attitude to help you succeed. The data engineering program is takes place on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 6:30pm - 9:30pm and 12pm - 9pm on Sundays. Spending this amount of h...

    Totally Life Changing Experience

    I chose this course because I was looking for a place that had live teaching online that was well structured pedagogically and I was not disappointed.  Jeff is a phenomenal teacher and I used to teach for years so I don't just say that for anybody.  My experience with the externship part of the course was a bit rocky but I also learned a ton of javascript and new tools from it that I will totally use in my next role.  
    I also took the course while working a pretty intense full-time jo...

    Graduate

    I chose Jigsaw Labs after dozens of BootCamp interviews because Jeff outright nerded out about his research and curriculum, he wasn't selling anything just sharing the state of data and where we fit in that world. I joined this course having absolutely no background in programming or computer science, part of me didn't believe I could come out the other end as a skilled engineer but I have and feel confident in my skills. I could not recommend this course highly enough.

    Fantastic teaching and unbelievable return on investment

    It's obvious that Jeff’s passion is teaching. He puts in effort to adjust to and support his students and will dive into problems (such as debugging your code) for however long it takes. Jeff is a patient teacher and I never had any kind of friction with the way he taught; it was totally fluid for me.

    What sold me on the legitimacy of the program was that Jeff weekly iterates on the curriculum to reflect the requirements of current job listings. He is really focused ...

    Up to date curriculum and great instructor

        I had been looking to get into the field of data and programming and took numerous short intro classes at several well known technical schools/bootcamps to see if it would be worth it to take their full time courses in data science and data engineering. 
    What I found was that the instructors really couldn’t really be hands on because the class sizes were too large and many instructors just couldn’t teach. 
        It was too much of a risk in time and tuition costs (also possibly h...

    Great for making a career transition

    Coming from a "non-traditional" background (law) makes the lead instructor Jeff's mastery of a whole range of data engineering subject matters all the more amazing. 

    For someone like me seeking to transition to data engineering from a "non-traditional" background (law and international relations), Jigsaw Labs' curriculum covering in-demand skills, coupled with Jeff's attentiveness (one-on-one office hours in addition to regular classes), has been a huge boost to my domain knowledg...

    Great foundation for Data Science

    I was in the  Programming For Data Science class.  The course schedule was part-time (nights and weekends), which was a major reason I signed up. 

      The course is a great place to start if you are interested in data science. If you can't access and manipulate data, you can't be a data scientist. The curriculum is an intro to all the basics in programmi...

    Fantastic Date Engineering Bootcamp !

    Jigsaw Labs Data Engineering Bootcamp was a great experience for me.

    I've been a Software Developer for many years, and was looking for a change and decided I would like to pursue a job in Data Engineering. 

    After doing some research online, I contacted several Data Engineering bootcamps to feel them out and try to find a good fit. I wanted more than just the education, but a process for finding that first job as well. 

    Most bootcamps, as soon as I started talking to...

    Don't be afraid to take the leap!

    Jeff and Jigsaw Labs have helped changed the trajectory of my life and career over the course of a few short months.  We went through the essentials of Python and SQL, and then we dove into intensive work with dbt, Docker, Airflow, Snowflake, Fivetran.  The paired programming was very helpful for the learning process, where someone could help you fill in the blank, and you can do the same for them.  

    With the newly gained knowledge and experience, Jeff matched us with externships ...

    Brilliant Instructor, Brilliant Curriculum - JigSaw Labs is the Best Program Around

    Jig Saw Labs Backend Engineering bootcamp was an incredibly rigorous, challenging, and rewarding investment and experience. I'm a former middle school principal so I know a few things about good instruction - in particular, good online instruction since the last two years forced us to determine how to effectively provide online instruction tantamount to in person instruction. Beyond his genius as a developer, Jeff is an incredible instructor, which is fueled by a holistic and rigorous cu...

    A Must Attend!!

    I had a wonderful experience with the Jigsaw Labs career course, and would strongly recommend moving forward on it!! Jeff did a superb job of distilling complex topics into manageable concepts and tasks. I believe there might be only a handful of instructors/camps available that have both the competence and pedagogical know-how to communicate these topics well. The consistency of labs, where you apply hands-on experience, and thoughtful layering of the topics, provided an amazing acceler...

    Best instructor you can hope for

    Take this bootcamp if you are seriously considering a Data Engineering career. Jeff will challenge you to grow, but also offers a lot of guidance if/when needed. A lot of the topics covered have helpful labs, and the class structure promoted pair and individual practice as well as support you need when making a career change.  I got my job offer though his career services, but you have to do your part in studying and preparing. He strategically vets hiring managers and recruiters your wa...
