    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...

    Flexible, Supportive, Comprehensive

Students have access to instructor guidance within 24 hours, as well as being able to ask for help from other students through the Slack online community. The course content is delivered in a contemporary and humorous way, which makes t...

    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...

    Skillcrush is fantastic for beginners!

    Skillcrush has been fantastic from day 1! Their instructors do a great job of not only explaining what you are learning but why you are learning it. Skillcrush does an amazing job of providing information about each lesson as well as providing examples of each lesson. Each lesson is set up for the student to interact with the lesson material and engage in hands on learning before moving on to the next subject material.  The one thing that sets Skillcrush apart from the other online cours...

    Great for getting truly job-ready in tech

    I took my first class at Skillcrush just under a year ago, and today I am working full time, remote, at a great little design and development agency.  I am SO glad I took the plunge and signed up for Skillcrush! (I did the "break into tech" package, which is the comprehensive all in one, and also includes the career prep class.)

    Prior to Skillcrush, I spent a few months trying out classes at Codecademy and Coursera (some free and some paid), but never quite gained traction with th...

    Brilliant for Abosulte Beginners!

    I'm one third into the Front End Developer + React course and I love it. The courses are subdivided into lessons. Each lesson teaches a topic and includes an instruction video, a written summary of the information and tasks that allow you to apply your new skills to a practical project. At the end of the lesson you review the most important information in form of a quiz. 
    I had no previous experience in tech before I started this course and I have to say that I do not regret the inves...

    Skillcrush is a good investment!

    I signed up for the Break Into Tech blueprint a few months ago and have enjoyed it so far. Right now I'm working through the Front End Developer section and have completed both the HTML/CSS and Git/Github courses. I like the way Skillcrush stages their instruction so that they introduce new topics bit by bit and slowly have you practice them on your own to get confident with the topic. This is a self paced course so you do have to stay on top of it and make sure you take the time to work...
