    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...

    Comprehensive Data Engineering Bootcamp

    Jigsaw Labs does a great job in preparing you to be a data engineer. The first portion of the course involves going through software engineering covering back end development. Starting out with going through some basic fundamentals of coding involving arrays, dictionaries, functions, and tests. Everything builds on itself starting from day one ensuring that one is able to gain continued practice and exposure to the concepts in different formats. From there it goes into learning about cod...

    Incredible Experience

    I came into the course with very little technical background besides a BA in economics. This made the backend engineering portion pretty challenging which required a lot of outside hours (for me personally). However, this foundational work made learning new technologies later in the course much easier. I loved this course because it taught us how to think and investigate problems like engineers. What are the inputs and what outputs do we want? What does the error message say? Di...

    Jigsaw Labs: Phenomenal instructor, cutting-edge curriculum and built-in internship

    Why do most people participate in any type of career bootcamp? The belief that a bootcamp is a cost-effective, time-efficient means to obtain a job.

    Jigsaw Labs was Absolutely Worth It!

     I am extremely grateful to Jeff Katz, and the rest at the staff over at Jigsaw labs, as thanks to their efforts I managed to obtain a job in data engineering even before the bootcamp ended!

    Process over python

    "Process over python" was a quote that the instructor Jeff reinforced throughout the course. Yes we learned the technical knowledge of python for building ETL pipelines from scratch, but Jigsaw also teaches you how to think like a programmer and approach problems using data engineering logic. You stop worrying about if you can solve something, and start breaking down a coding challenge piece by piece using the Jigsaw curriculum's methodology and principles that utilize python's incredible ...

    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 ...
