    Great community, curriculum, and course structure.

    This course strikes a great balance of being remote and part-time, yet still remaining engaging and social. Like most courses, you will get out what you put in. With Practicum's Web Development course, if you put in the bare minimum, you still take a significant deep dive into front-end web development. You'll graduate the course (perhaps taking a hiatus or two if you can't keep up) with a full portfolio of impressive projects, useful skills relevant to today's industry, and experience w...

    Data Scientist Introduction course

    I just started the full data scientist course by Practicum. Before that, I did the introduction course and that went really well! The course was difficult but, it allowed me to get a full view of what I would be doing in the data scientist course. The nice thing about the introduction course is that you can not only ask questions through the slack channel and get answers but, you can also ask questions on the learning platform and get help right away! The transition from the introduction...

    Web Development Introductory Course

    I have just joined the Web developer program at Practicum by Yandex but I was impressed with the free intro course. it gets you in the mood to learn and the way it is structured as an interactive session is amazing. The scenarios used make you feel part of a team at a startup and you are the new developer who is learning at the new job. The support staff is always there to help in case of any challenges.
    I gained confidence in coding skills and am excited about what the full course ha...

    Software Engineer

    Currently taking the Data Science course.

    From the perspective of a CS grad and as a software engineer, the program is of good quality. I can't compare it to other bootcamps, but from a practical point of view, you're taught most things necessary to do your job correctly. As with most online courses, what you put into it is what you get out of it- there are a lot of resources that you have access to throughout the duration of the program, make use of them. This includes mentors th...

    Data Science

    Hi all. I'm studying at Practicum already 7 month on Data Science program. It is a great opportunity to became more familiar with DS field. After 5 month I already fell myself more confidently working with Python and data bases. 
    I cannot tell it's enough to find a new job, because I still haven't try, but I assure that you can do it following their recommendation in carrier track sessions (by the way there is a great speaker Carrie). 
    Also Practicum gives a really good level of kn...

    Currently in my 3rd month of the web development program

    I just started my third month in the web development program.  Wanted to leave a review because I searched here before joining the school, and it seemed like most of the reviews were from people who have only taken the free introductory course.  Now that I've been a (paying) student for a while, I'll share my experience.

    The good:
    •  The introductory course was a good way to discover that their teaching style is a good fit for me.
    •  I have learned a LOT in a short time.  Th...

    Great learning material and community

    The material on the platform is engaging and the community is very supportive.   But what really makes this course shine are the real, substantial projects that you build from the ground up, along with the challenging system of code reviews for each project.   Highly recommended.

    Glad I took the leap

    I personally have never had experience studying from an online boot camp, but I saw Practicum through an enticing advertisement and decided to finally pull the trigger after thinking about being part of a boot camp for some time. The early part of the course is easy to understand even for those without STEM backgrounds while teaching Python fundamentals. I am in the last third of the course and it has become increasingly difficult where I'm putting in 1.5x more hours than I had originall...

    Web Developer Introductory Course

    I finished the introductory course in web development and it was fantastic, I cannot wait to start the full program. The course is very well written and the lessons are very informative. The coding platform is friendly and it provides you with hints when you get stuck. The community manager is very friendly and always there to help. It's a very lovely community and I can't wait to continue my education with Practicum by Yandex.

    Still in development, but potential to be one of the best programs around

    Fantastic course so far!

    Having completed the intro course, this program seems to be a really good mix between your standard intensive boot camp and something like DataQuest ore Codeacademy. This is helpful in keeping you motivated without feeling too rigid.

    There is the occasional issue that arises due to some translation issue (Yandex is a Russian company), but translating is hard enough without having to do it while teaching a technical subject. I'd rate this a 4.5 stars...

    I was nervous about signing up for a bootcamp

    I was nervous about signing up for a bootcamp because after reading about them, many seemed to not have much depth nor prepare you to truly be a data scientist. I was already diving in to data science by watching YouTube videos and reading articles, but I wanted to know more than just writing or copying lines of code, so before I signed up I looked at outline of topics and I was surprised that it dove into a wide range of topics and more important, statistics and linear algebra. I wanted...

Having a learning disability doesn’t preclude you from learning how to code or launching your tech career.
