    Best way to learn tech!

    I happened to stumble upon Skillcrush by accident when looking for a new career to pursue, and it was the best accident I could have asked for! What drew me in was the free week bootcamp they offer to get a glimpse of what the courses entail. I immediately became interested just by the way the instructors were presenting the material. It felt very warm, friendly, and inviting. They did a great job of making it feel comfortable and not intense for anyone who may be trying to learn tech fr...

    So pleased!

    Over the summer I discovered coding on my own but found that I needed so guidance still. Skillcrush offers exactly what I need and I can work at my own pace. I am currently in the Front End Developer Career Track but I am planning on taking other courses later on. Every day there is something that makes more sense and I can put into my developer tool kit. Every time I have reached I was met with positive and meaningful interactions and very quickly. I have never felt like I was left hang...

    Break Into Tech Program

    I signed up for a four-month program designed to take students from knowing nothing about code to becoming job ready in many types of jobs in the tech industry. The program is great and rewarding but communication with the instructors and other students is difficult; even with Slack, emails, and Live Q&A. I often don't have time to wait for a response (3+ hours) so I use outside resources and sites hoping to try and figure things out on my own. I also thought there would be more prac...

    Skillcrush is awesome! I can move at my own pace and when I have time. The lessons are easy to absorb and can always be referenced at a later time with the lifetime access. Worth every penny! Great way to get your skills up to date quickly.

    Affordable, top notch instruction AND 1 on 1 mentoring!

    Before starting Skillcrush, I had tried a few other paths including free code camp, Kahn Academy, and a Google Certificate via Coursera. I have found Skillcrush instruction to be the best and the price is very affordable compared to some of the other coding boot camps out there. Also, 1 on 1 mentoring is unheard of at this price point. I have progressed faster than ever through this program and am confident I will be job ready upon completion.
