    I've managed to make it through the full set of modules in the HTML & CSS coding coursework and just need to get a domain name now.  It's impressive as I had no previous knowledge of coding and it seemed to be a big mystery to me to start with.  But, I highly rate the teaching style and engagement - learning always works when it is fun and you want to learn more and more and practice and practice...I'm managing the Break Into Tech Blueprint course whislt also doing an advanced excel course (figured I'd do the lot in one fell swoop) and moving across the Atlantic from the UK to Oregon, and working full time.  I'm saying all this to stress that this course is doable and flexible and fun.  I wish I had more time to totally dive in, but what I am gaining in knowledge and achieving in progress is brilliant.  The course allows you to think for yourself, encourages you to find your own answers for puzzling elements, yet the teaching crew and community are there to help you along and offer complete support.  I could go on and on... the sum of it is that I would recommend this course to anyone and everyone and I do!

    I do I recently became a stay at home mom needing a job. Then I found SkillCrush. After looking into it I finally decided to apply to the “Break Into Tech” Blueprint. 

    As a complete newbie to the tech industry it was a bit overwhelming to start, but the way the course is built, it really made it easy to learn. Furthermore the help given by all instructors is great, they are really there for you giving you insightful support. I have a long way to go, but I’m looking forward to the end result. 

    **I do wish some of the instructions were a little more clear, especially for those of us who are overhinkers / perfectionists**

    I’m really happy I found Skillcrush. The Instructors are amazing and helpful. The whole course is really good. They don’t gove you all the answers which is good, because you need to find it on your own or with their help so you can learn more things and practice. I highly recommend to everyone who wants to change carriers or want to learn some new skills. 😊

    After spending most of my career in sales, I decided I needed a change.  After extensive research I chose Skillcrush to learn the skills I would need.  The course work is self paced and appeals to a wide range of learning styles and skill levels.

    The staff is excellent in responding to questions quickly and effectively.  The counseling sessions are one on one and very informative.  

    Overall I love Skillcrush and can't wait until I can apply what I am learning to launch a new career!

    I was a beginner when started to learn with skillcrush how to build a website. I enjoy learning with skillcrush a lot, it explains the learning material in details and many times, slowly step-by-step. I especially like that there are not only texts but also videos (in which the teacher really enjoys what she does! [plus point] I appreciate very much that the skillcrush staff answers my questions quickly, they really care about the students. I offer everyone skillcrush with pleasure!

    I started my tech-journey in another online coding bootcamp but it wasn't what I needed, so I decided to switch to Skillcrush. It provides a great teaching platform that includes videos, quizes, and course work that educates me in the way I learn best. The Skillcrush Slack community is great for connecting with fellow students and mentors who can help solve the tough questions. Overall I am really enjoying learning coding and highly recommend Skillcrush!

             I come from absolute ZERO tech background. I'm currently working working full time, but learning to code in the evenings (classes are about 2-3 weeks, but its 'work at your own pace'). So far, I just completed the first course, "Skillcrush 101." That included learning HTML and CSS and coding my first website (and launching it this last week) all in about two months for me. I am so surprised that I am learning these new skills so easily through the SkillCrush moduels. It is challenging but very, very attainable. I am seeing new job opportunities opening for me already and I am really excited to continue with my next class! They do not leave you on your own, the instructors are so helpful and knowledgable and very sweet people. Connecting with fellow students and bouncing feedback off each other is so great as well. I highley, highley reccomend taking SkillCrush courses. It is worth every cent and more!

    I love the instructional material Skillcrush has created.  I'm a long time computer user and programmer.  However, I take a break for about 4 years.  Didn't program during that time and when I decided to program again the world had moved on.  Even basic skills like HTML and CSS had changed a bit during that time.  I wanted something that would ease me back into the tech world without dumping too much on me at once.  Skillcrush is a great fit.  Every lesson has some valuable knowledge.  I feel like I'm getting back up to speed at a reasonable rate and I don't feel like I'm wasting my time with the parts I had experience with before because the discussions do a good job of explaining why the way Skillcrush wants me to tackle a problem is a best practice.

    I've heard about coding for a while now. Heck, kids are learning it in elementary school, so at 59 I decided it was something I needed to pay attention to and possibly learn. I'm not the smartest on a computer but can eventually figure things out. So I looked at review after review of a number of online learning companies that offered coding and eventually narrowed the choices down to 2. On instinct I decided to go with Skillcrush and do the Break Into Tech Blueprint Program. In under 2 weeks I've coded and am about to launch my first website. I'm pretty impressed.

    I've found the lessons and content to be so easy to learn. Adda provides clear, concise and valuable information in her videos and the following flow of education has checks and balances along the way to ensure I've been getting what I've been told and shown. Everything is broken down into steps that make the learning and the eventual goal not only attainble but without almost any stress. A couple of times I just couldn't figure something out and when I reached out the instructors and the support system in place, I was again very impressed with how fast responses and guidance came. I would definitely recommend Skillcrush if someone is wanting to learn how to code.

    I spent nearly 2 months reviewing and searching for an online set of courses that allowed me to take all of the course work online while still having access to instructors, other students and support when needed. 

    Skillcrush ticked all of those boxes for me and I could not be happier to have purchased the Break Into Tech Blueprint and have full access to so much material. 

    I am extremely pleased with the structure of courses and with the course work as well as all of the support provided by the Skillcrush team. I have no doubt in my mind that if I work through the blueprint and practice the skills I am learning that I can turn this into a promising career.

    If you're looking to become a developer I highly recommend looking at Skillcrush, it is hands-down one of the best sites for this kind of coursework out there.
