    I am about 2 weeks in to the Front End Developer Blueprint and I would highly recommend this Blueprint or investing in Skillcrush. I've gone through programs such as Udacity, Udemy, and Codeacademy, but what I like about Skillcrush's curriculum is that it takes a slow and steady approach to learning concepts for new beginners. I am very much a beginner and the curriculum has helped me to follow along and help me retain the information. Other programs seem like they take a giant leap in their curriculum and it's hard to keep up. Plus, Skillcrush seems to be geared for visual learners.

    The only critique (which is very minor) would be the "Mark as complete" option when we get to practice coding. Sometimes I think it would be helpful to show me my errors in the text editor before I move on to the next section. I think I have been able to move on to the next sections by completing the exercises, but I'm not 100% sure if they are correct.

    All in all, I have really enjoyed this experience and I would definitely recommend this program not just to a female demographic, but a male demographic too. I like the push for women in tech and I think Skillcrush does a great job to empower women and learners in general. Thank you Skillcrush and I hope to become an outstanding Alumni and seek a full-time web developer job!

    I am currently finishing up week 2 of the Skillcrush Front end Development Blueprint and I have already had several aha moments. I will admit I am a woman and I have limited experience with coding and the decision to begin was difficult. I was intimidated. I have been a stay at home Mom for the past 16 years and thinking that I could start a brand new career in my 40's was terrifying and to be honest I thought was impossible. Then came Skillcrush. Adda has provided a curriculum that is user friendly and the environment is encouraging. By the end of week one curriculum I feel like I have a soldi grasp of HTML basics. My confidence level is skyrocketing and I for the first time believe I can have a career as a front end developer. Thank you Skillcrush for providing an education that speaks to me and for providing this curriculum in several different mediums to reach the different levels that I learn. I look forward to the next lesson and find that I lose track of time as I am actually enjoying my education. I can't wait to complete this Blueprint and begin the next one!

    So far I am really enjoying the skillcrush program! I am doing to the Wordpress Bootcamp which entails the Front-end Developer, Web Design and Wordpress Developer blueprints. The lessons have been fun to learn and just enough information is given to teach you the materials but not overwhelm and freak you out. I am only two weeks in on the Front-end Developer blueprint which is all the basics of building a website. There are many resources for you to use as you go through each lesson including your class group, which is really helpful! My only suggestion as of now that would make it better is for during the practice in each lesson. It doesn't tell you if your code is right or wrong and it is a little difficult to know if your doing it the right or most concise way. All in all, I am enjoying my time so far and cannot wait for more!

    The best learning experience I have come across. Skillcrush is welcoming from the very first contact and does everything possible to make the learning experience fit the individual. There is no-pressure with the 'try it and see' experience via the Introductory Bootcamps to help you decide if it is for you. There is ongoing flexibility for choosing, changing or adding learning modules. There is always a quick human response to requests for help with any issue or question.

    The module content is authoritative and well organised, just the right amount & depth for initial understanding and practice of concepts, with plenty of links to etxra resources when you want more. They style of audio visual and written material is upbeat, positive and engaging. At the end of each week it's impressive to see how much has actually been covered.

    All perspectives of professional web work are covered: - design .v. development, creative .v. technical, choosing the necessary software tools, establishing your credentials via portfolio and resume preparation. Course delivery is by a great team of people with real world experience and knowledge. An extended network of Skillcrush associates provide additional free 'Master Classes' on a wide range of professional workplace topics.

    I am 25 years old and was looking for a career that would allow me to be creative and also support myself, but escaping the traditional 9-to-5. When I found Skillcrush, their 5-minute test to see if a career in tech might be a good fit for me really opened my eyes that tech might be where the kind of career I was looking for resided. My father works in tech as a computer systems engineer but I had always thought I was too right-brained, as I'm a musician and artist. But after taking the test and sampling their course through the coding bootcamp (which was so fun!) I saw that a viable creative career in tech could be really possible. They offer payment plans and discounts so it was affordable, and now three weeks into the Break Into Tech course I am growing a solid understanding of HTML/CSS and have coded two websites already! The course is well-structured and in-depth and I'm so very pleased and happy to be a part of the community and continue on this new journey. I highly recommend it and suggest you give their coding bootcamp a try! Go Skillcrush!

    I toyed with a few different courses before signing up the skillcrush, all of which were clunky and difficult to follow. As a total beginner and new to code, skillcrush was the obvious choice. Really welcoming, extremely user friendly, and empowering at every step. I learned more in a week than I ever imagined and had built my first website within the first month. I’m still just taking it day by day but I can safely say this is the best experience I’ve ever had from an independent training provider. The best part is it’s super Affordable, and I pay a fair price each month. Highly recommend!

    SkillCrush is absolutely fabulous! The course is not only easy to walk through and built with beginners like myself in mind but the instructors are also easy to get ahold of, incredibly helpful and very encouraging!  Love the school, and all they do so much I have already recommended it to two friends.

    I attended Skillcrush and just completed the HTML and CSS course. I had a great experience overall and would highly recommend this program to anyone looking to jump in. I loved the setup of the courses online and how you could take it at your own pace. This allows you to really take the time you need to master a subject but also breeze over the ones that you may have already mastered. Everything was explained in detail which was very helpful because they say the right way to do it (but you know with coding there are multiple correct ways) so it also showed the wrong way that would not be clean code. This was useful because job employers are going to look at the details of your code and ensure you know what best practices are and that they are in place. My only advice to Skillcrush would be to lay off some of the cheesy jokes. I would be in a very focused mind-state walking through the lessons and then a cheesy joke would come on and loose my focus and concentration. Other than that a great program that walks through everything you will need to know to get hired after completing their courses. In addition to the lessons, the teachers are wonderful. They review your submitted projects promptly and answer any questions you may have in detail. This was so great because I would get a response while the issue was still in my head so it made moving on to the next lesson very easy. Great program and I cannot wait to finish the other courses!

    I enrolled in the Break Into Tech package on Cyber Monday which included courses from the entire site. As a career changer from healthcare and soon to be tech, I cannot speak highly enough of the cost of value to skills learned/services provided. Thus far I have completed the Web Design course, UX Research course, and am working on the UX Information Architecture course with a goal of becoming a user experience researcher in a few months. The skills are introduced in bite-sized amounts, the instructors provide thorough and timely feedback, the career transition and support services that I have used so far appear to be robust. I feel supported and coached throughout this journey.

    I loved this course.  A lot of useful information was presented.  I loved learning how to take the information in a photoshop document, and apply it to an html website from scratch!  I also learned a lot of great functions to use in my code and I had a guiding hand the whole way.  I loved being able to email the instructors and get feedback in less than 24 hrs.  And they wouldn't just give me the answer, they would explain what area I should look closer in my code, and had me fix my own mistakes.  I highly recommend this course for anyone looking to get a start toward front end development.
