    Incredible Learning opportunity!

    An amazing bootcamp. I have tried to learn to code before using a combination of sits but nothing really stuck with me and it was hard to keep motivated and it was hard to see any progress. I have only been using Skillcrush for 1 week and I feel like I have months of experience as a coder. The lessons are superb, they walk you through everything in a way that helps you understand. and there is always an instructor just a message away to help you with any issues. honestly words cant do Sk...

    The structure you need to finally learn how to code

    Skillcrush gave me the structure I needed to finally buckle in and learn how to code. They break things down into measureable steps so that you can feel yourself progressing towards feeling knowledgeable about a myriad of coding subjects. They also set you up to display all of your hard work by the time you complete each subject.

    Skillcrush is everything that it claims!

    I signed up for Skillcrush to refresh some old skills and learn some new ones. I'm extremely pleased with the teaching methods as well as the instructors and support. There is so much additional content and webinars to keep you motivated and moving forward. I was a skeptic when I first heard about Skillcrush because I felt like the cost of classes seemed low for the number of skills that they teach. The other courses I was looking at before deciding were 5X the price of Skillcrush. Not g...

    Best Coding Bootcamp for Career Changers

    If you are a career changer, Skillcrush is the BEST program out there. You will not find a better, more cost-effective bootcamp experience out there. I signed up for two tracks: Frontend Developer and the Get Hired Tracks. It cost exponentially less than every other option out there that provides live support and access to coaching. 

    The Frontend Developer track was very comprehensive and gave me substantive practice with many of the latest technologies. As you work towards comple...

    Break into tech

    This program is perfect for self-paced and beginner friendly in every way. The instructors are always there to help and also we have a slack community that includes all students and whenever we get stuck we all assist each other. So far I’m 50% threw the program and I work a full time job and things are just wonderful so far.

    Flexible study schedules

    I am really glad I joined Skillcrush's Break into Tech bootcamp. I have just completed the JavaScript course and will start the ReactJS soon.
    This course has given me the needed skillset to start out as a Front-End Developer. They  provide a lot of website coding challenges that will bring out the programmer in you. Being a self learner myself, the knowledge I gained here has really strenghtened my programming foundations. Part time learning or immersive learning. It is all up to you....

    Highly recommended

    I am halfway through Skillcrush's Break Into Tech course and it is one of the best courses I have done. This is my first study in tech and design. Everything is presented in a very encouraging way. I finish each video and think 'yes, I can do it'. The teaching style really appeals to me. There are so many men in tech, it is a breath of fresh air to be learning from Skillcrush. Highly recommended.

    Is school allowed to be fun?

    I completed the Front End Developer Blueprint with Skillcrush a few years ago (2017). When I did the web dev course, it gave me so much confidence and I was able to land a role as a multimedia developer as a result. Now I'm back again for the User Experience Course to power up my skill set even further. About a third of the way through, it's been exactly what I needed, and has so much relevance to my current role. I love how transferable the skills are (I do instructional design as part ...

    Review of Skillcrush

    I am presently learning front end development in designing web pages. It is my first attempt at learning these skills and I find it very challenging.  However, I also find it very rewarding in the sense that I am learning new skills (I love to learn new things) that may eventually lead me into a new career that I can work from home. I have already put two webpages online, both of which are pretty simple and nothing to brag about.  The fact that I wrote the HTML and the CSS and the JavaSc...

    Upbeat but challenging

    I signed up for some coding camps back in 2006 and got through part of the WordPress course but got intimidated. I finally came back to Skillcrush this year and completed the first course in the series on HTML and CSS. All my coursework was still there waiting for me in new improved formats. I had originally signed up for front-end development with the WordPress module and the design section. It was great to be back and get started again and found it much easier this time since I was alr...
