    I studied intro and advanced JavaScript in spring 2017, taught by Drew Minns and assisted by Jordan, Trudy, and Garrett.

    Starting with just a HTML/CSS background, I learned how functions can enable users to interact with your pages. The course focuses on teaching you a lot of fundamental knowledge and basics.   Combined together, this knowledge can be used to build some really build some really interesting programs on the browser.

    I'm now able to send requests to API's and use the returned content to dynamically update a page.  I feel more confident in my ability to work through problems and approach them step by step.  The instructors are great, and their one on one guidance really helped unblock me when I was stuck.

    It was a great overall crash course to user experience design that really delved into as much as one can cover within a span of 12 weeks. Ricardo was really engaging and helpful during class and there was never a dull moment when he was teaching. All of the mentors were great and always approachable and willing to chat when there was free time. It was good to have something tangible to work on as the project and I appreciated that it encompassed both the visual and research aspects. As a designer it was great learning about design approaches and how to implement them in my work. I'd recommend the course to anyone interested in UX design!

    I took the Advanced UX course in Spring and it was even better than I expected!
     
    Ricardo is hands down one of the BEST instructors I’ve ever had. He’s so knowledgeable and his enthusiasm for design is contagious. What struck me the most was how he was able to teach topics that are interesting to both UX designers and people with no design background.
     
    Linn and Winter are the mentors of the class. They are very approachable and generous with their time. Their feedback was always valuable and insightful. They really help with pointing you in the right direction!
     
    I only wish that there was less time dedicated to working on our projects in class and more time on the lessons. I would rather work on the project at my own time and learn more from Ricardo in class while I had the chance. Especially that the classes are in the late evening and my productivity is very low at that time. I was already drained from working all day and barely managed to get anything done in class, but then again that could be only me.
     
    Glad I found this course!

    I took the Part Time Intro and Advanced Web Dev course in Spring 2017.

    The curriculum was much more in depth that I was expecting, considering I had taken some online free coding courses in the past. But the instructors/mentors make sure that everyone is up to speed before moving on to new topics. They are totally fine answering any and all questions, even if you feel a little silly for asking them! And the code along exercises spaced throughout each class are extremely valuable to solidifying the skills you are building. And the three course projects really challenge you to apply everything you have learned, and really show you how much you have learned in just a short space of time!

    I have never experienced such a welcoming and friendly environment, everyone is so willing to help each other and talk about their experiences, it is amazing!

    I am really excited to apply to the full time bootcamp in the fall!

    I had little design expereience coming in to this but it turns out that the material was easy enough to absorb and I also learned how to use Sketch to create my first project. The topics covered in the UX class were very interesting and it makes you see every day objects/processes differently. The instructors were very kind and always open to answering any questions. The space is clean and the location (Queen and Spadina) is easily accessible which is great since I attend class after work and it's an easy commute. I would highly recommend HackerYou because I'm sure the quality of their other classes are just as good.

    The Part-Time Web Development course at HackerYou was exactly what I was looking for.  It gave me a chance to "dip my toes" in the world of web development and gain a better idea if it was an industry I would be interested in transferring into.

    The program provided me with an impressive amount of practical skill development. I went from knowing nothing about creating websites to creating 3 different sites over the duration of the course.  

    The teaching style is very hands-on and project based, allowing for an engaging classroom environment. There are also a number of "mentors" in addition to the class instructor who attend every class to help work through problems on-the-fly.  Through the instructor and mentors, the students also get a glimpse of the breadth of the industry and potential careers/opportunities therein.

    HackerYou's facilities are convenient, clean, modern and user-friendly.  There is a lounge with kitchen, couches, etc.  I felt very comfortable in the physical space.

    Overall, I would recommend this program to anyone looking to get a better understanding of the wed development industry, and/or learn a set of in-demand and practical skills. I've decided to continue into the Web Development Full Time Immersive program in the summer and am looking forward to diving in full-time!

    The part-time Web Development course at HackerYou has been a challenging and very rewarding experience. While the information was not hard to grasp, the amount of information was overwhelming at times. I found the 3 projects really pushed me to integrate all of the information in a way that made sense. The structure and flow of the course was very well organized and Anne was an incredible teacher. I absolutely loved her teaching style!! The mentors were very helpful and friendly and ready to help whenever you needed it. I took this course to fill in the gaps of my knowledge. I am a designer and have been building websites after I created one for myself. Once I started doing it for others I realized there was a limit to what I could accomplish with a template. After this course I feel confident that I can now get the results that I want and more. And the bonus is that I really enjoy coding. Thank you HackerYou for opening my eyes to the world beyond my computer screen.

    I attended Hackeryou's PT Web-Dev course in Spring 2017. My instructor was Haris Mahmood and he was awesome. Super smart, funny, engaging, and easy to talk to. I have never been more excited to come to a class in my educational career and I am very grateful that I made the decision to attend Hackeryou as opposed to other tech schools in Toronto. I found the community very genuine and supportive and I made some great friends/ connections here. The projects were applicable to real- world scenarios and were a great way to practice the skills learned in lectures.

    My journey at HackerYou began in the summer 2016 part time course and I was so immediately taken with the school’s vibe (think career-focussed fast paced but also unpretentious and relaxed learning environment) that I jumped right into the full time bootcamp that fall. My part-time instructors were Drew and Tiff, who did an excellent job of covering everything you need to know about HTML and CSS in a highly detailed and comprehensive way, while also being super chill. They seamlessly incorporated learning how to code with industry standards and best practices. I would recommend this course to anyone who is considering a career change or who is curious about how to make beautiful websites. Through my studies at HackerYou I have made a full career change and went from working in TV to a front end developer at a software company where my focus is working with the UX/UI team to create a beautiful product.

    I joined the Winter 2017 Introduction to web development and thoroughly enjoyed my time at HackerYou. I learned coding in a very welcoming, project-based environment and would recommend the course to anyone interested in web development. The instructors and mentors were very caring and friendly, and the topics chosen were incredibly handy. There were some topics I wish we could have lingered on a little bit longer, and I wish there were more collaborative group projects, but other than that I give all my praises to this school!

    I took the part-time Intro + Advanced course at HackerYou in 2014! 

    Wes Bos was the instructor with Anne and Ryan as the mentors. Both mentors are still with HackerYou – Anne teaches an Intro to Web Development and Ryan is the Head Instructor & Development Lead – which is a great bonus for all current and future students. Both mentors are truly great – patient, helpful, and knowledgeable without ever being anything less than completely approachable. Anne even helped me with a non-HackerYou work-related project before class one evening, which was enormously helpful. It was a JavaScript bug I spent two days staring at without making any progress. Thanks to Anne I was able to fix the problem and submit the project in a much-improved form. 

    The style of learning – hands-on and project-based with lots of little exercises in the mix – was super beneficial for me! Not only is this the way I personally learn best, but it also means that at the end of the program, each student has real, working projects to show off to friends, family, or employers. You can point to a website or web application with pride and satisfaction (something I experienced rarely in other formal educational environments). I was even able to use a HackerYou project as the basis of a work project (bonus points for getting paid to learn!).

    With the skills I developed at HackerYou, I gained a sureness in my abilities I don't think I would otherwise have. And at work, I moved more quickly into complex projects with less assistance from co-workers and greater success (and more positive feedback from my bosses).

    I can't say enough good things about HackerYou. I just completed the part-time Intro to Web Development and Advanced Web Development courses a few weeks ago, and it has been such a wonderful learning experience. At HackerYou, the instructors and mentors are so knowledgeable, insightful, easygoing, and patient, and it truly makes the entire learning experience unparalleled. 

    It was really useful having so many practical in-class exercises that really solidify the concepts you learn so that you can easily apply them in the real world. 

    Moreover, HackerYou has the most supportive and welcoming community for both current students and alumni, and I'm so glad to be a part of it! 

    Currently, I'm further refining my the skills I've learned by doing small projects for myself/friends while also learning about JavaScript before my Introduction to JavaScript/jQuery course at HackerYou starts next week!

Thanks!
