    I am currently enrolled in the All-Access Career Blueprint. I have only been enrolled for a couple weeks, but thus far have really enjoyed how Skillcrush breaks down the lessons to make them fun and easy to follow. I have already used and learned so many new tools that I know I can use in the future even if I don't land my dream tech job. The instructors are fun and I consider them professional encouragers. I feel supported and I am so glad I was listening to the Disrupt Yourself podcast so that I can start my career change. Glad I found Skillcrush and would recommend this program specifically for women looking to enter the tech field.

    As a senior I was a little nervous about jumping into a science that didn't exist when I graduated from college.

    But the tone  of Skillcrush's communications were so welcoming and supportive that I joined up.

    I especiallyadmire their commitment to young women learning website building skills. Questions are answered quickly and cogently.

    Although I am only on my first course, I am delighted with the clarity of  instructions and explanations. The lesson plans are well structured and the exercises are lots of fun. I appreciate the thought that goes into the material --excellent quotes and lots of great facts!

    I look forward to continuing these courses and Skillcrush.

    I'm not completely new to HTML and CSS, which is where the course lessons start. I was a bit afraid the content would be basic, to my surprise the content is packed full of information and explanations I've never been exposed to. I'm so happy about my decision to enroll in the boot camp and looking forward to learning more. Thank you SkillCrush for figuring out away to teach coding in a way that is easy to comprehend but not watered down.

    I am currently taking the WordPress Bootcamp course with Skillcrush.  I have just completed my first week but I'm working at a faster rate due to having time off my job this week (so currently working through week 3's material) and I am LOVING it!!!  I am a total newbie at tech but really want to move into this job sector and change my career.  I came across Skillcrush whilst searching the internet looking at how to do this.  The couseware is fab, I find that everything is explained really well and is very interesting to learn - I am also loving the cheatsheets - so useful!  The team at Skillcrush are amazing, always responding in detail whenever I have questions or need help.  And being part of the Google Groups with other students is a fantastic source of help and I have even been able to help some other students!  I think that what you get with this course (compared to loads of others I have researched), is amazing value for money and a genuine feeling that the instructors want you to suceed and are there to help you every step of the way, instead of courses you just follow online and never actually speak to anyone.  Thank you Skillcrush I am so excited about learning this with you and I love being a Skillcrusher!!

    I did the free bootcamp before starting the Web Design Blueprint and it sold Skillcrush to me. The whole set up has a friendly feel to it. The course is well-paced, full of good resources and feels up to date, fresh and fun. I must admit I didn't use the forums much and so can't comment on the instructor but as a complete newbie to coding it surely says something about the design of the course that I actually didn't need to - although I did contact the helpdesk a few times and have had a very prompt and personable service from them (despite asking fairly daft questions!). I am a fair bit older than the target audience for Skillcrush but I am very glad that they exist. I believe I stumbled upon the site via a blog post from a frustrated administrator and am very glad I did. I plan to complete another of the Blueprints when I finally manage to complete the Web Design one (the flexible learning part is also a big bonus for a single mother). Hurrah for Skillcrush, I am a big fan!

    Hello! writing a review telling you about Skillcrush?? with PLEASURE :D

    I'm attending the online Front End Developer blueprint and I've started basically from nothing, i had a very very basics idea of what developers do, but this blueprint is opening my eyes, mind and teaching me a lot!!! Well structured, with a lot of online resources provided, links to super useful information and the possibility to study at your own pace. Need help or have questions? don't worry, teachers are always available via email but you can always count on the great Google Group, a community you'll be part of from day one! Besides teachers, there you'll find other students willing to help you, work together and share info, a great Team Work, with no judgement!! I am learning a lot and I'm glad I've decided to do this course; certainly you'll have to find the time to practice every day, if you're a beginner like me I highly recommend to create a study routine and keep it! 

    CONCLUSION: yes! I recommend Skillcrush, no doubts about it :) Thanks again Adda&Team !!!

    I'm currently enrolled in the Skillcrush WordPress Developer Blueprint, a 9 month class that includes the front-end blueprint, WordPress blueprint, and visual design blueprint. Before starting, I'd never touched a line of code. Skillcrush has helped me learn new skills, cultivate a love of all things websites, and launch my own freelance biz. I'm so greatful to the support of the class mentors, who've helped me spot more bugs than I knew were possible. The material can be challenging, and to reall 'get' it you'll need lots of practice, but Skillcrush is a great place to start. They offer a stellar product at an affordable price point.

    I am two weeks into the Front End Developer Blueprint and I am absolutely loving it! This is a fantastic, non-threatening, female-centric course that makes what would normally be a daunting experience really enjoyable. I'm really excited to be learning something new that will help me to earn more and work my job around my life rather than the other way around. I have recommended this course to a lot of people already, including my admissions co-ordinator at Remote Year, which I'll be joining soon. He was really impressed with what he heard and will recommend Skillcrush to other applicants who are looking to make coding a career and change their lives for the better! I am so grateful to have found Skillcrush and can't recommend the course highly enough.

    I am very happy with Skillcrush's Front-End Developer Blueprint.  I like that they teach a couple things a day and give us chances to practice, so that we can grasp the concept.  I was extremely nervous before I started the course that I wouldn't be able to keep up, but with the way this course is set up I haven't had any problems at all.  I can't wait to turn my life around with a career in tech.

    There are many things to love about Skillcrush. They seem to seek the advancement of women in the tech industry. They are lighthearted and open and eager to sign people up for their blueprints. However, if you are a complete newbie and need close mentorship, you're not going to find it here. When you download challenges into the system there is no feedback as to whether you completed the task correctly. It kind of goes out in limbo. Even though there is a Google Group community that corresponds to your Blueprint, it is not the same as having a mentor. I tried two courses with Skillcrush and did not receive the support I needed. On the second one I did not recieve the access to materials you're promised. I am very saddened because I had very high hopes of getting the training promised by Skillcrush.
