    Skillcrush blueprints are the perfect way for me to pick up new tech skills. 

    I was enrolled in a online university working toward an associates degree with an emphasis on IT.  After taking several courses, I had basically only learned how to write papers and powerpoints on the subject matter, but had gotten ZERO experience or practice DOING anything.

    Skillcrush throws you right into coding from the very beginning.  I learned more skills and had greater understanding (and confidence!) in the first two weeks than I did after taking three 5-week long college courses.  Also, the entire Break Into Tech blueprint was about the same cost as one college course.

    I also appreciate that Skillcrush is 100% self-paced.  There are guidelines on how long it should take you to do certain courses, but there are no hard deadlines or due dates.  If life happens, you can take a day off with no remorse or suffering grades.

    Skillcrush requires you to have self-disipline and good time-management skills to be successful. 

    If you are ready to work hard and want to jump straight into immediately learning new skills, there is no better option than Skillcrush!

    I highly recommend the Skillcrush WordPress Developer Blueprint!  The classes are informative, fun and flow in a way that I feel is great for working through the material and digesting the information.  Very positive and relatable approach backed up by instructors who are encouraging and provide feedback and answeres to questions.

    So far, I have completed 103-Introduction to WordPress and I am looking forward to moving on to Skillcrush 105.  Thanks Skillcrush!

    I'm currently enrolled in the UX Design course and am really impressed and pleased with it so far. Probably the best-added feature is really the support given - the instructors respond very quickly and there are many mediums in which to get support (email, feedback challenges, slack community, and online Q&A sessions). As well, the course project is interesting and I'm happy that I'm able to leave the course with 3 projects I can add to my portfolio. In terms of the content, I find it both easy to follow, but they also provide many ways to practice the theories taught so you really feel like you're gaining experience. Overall, I am incredibly happy with the course and has made me want to take more courses from them after I'm done this one because I love the environment so much

    Skillcrush makes learning fun and easy to understand. I love the layout of the whole site, from the design (everything has to be visually pleasing to me) to th actual courses. I feel like this is a great school/course/bootcamp for complete newbies such as myself. I also really enjoy that it is female-oriented, and that the majority of the instructors and students are women. There is definitely a need for that in such a male dominated industry.

    The first thing you will notice when doing the courses here at skillcrush is that the videos are actually entertaining, fun and engaging.  This blew me away and it sets them apart from the rest.  It makes the videos easy to watch and while it keeps you engaged, you learn more easily.  Adda has an awesome way of relating the material.  They are not lectures at all, they are more about the discovery of a new universe of html, css, design, etc and with all the fun that discovery can bring.  So while I enjoy watching the videos, the concepts and techniques are presented in very logical straightforward ways that make them easy to understand.  

    The homework is guided and you really get a chance to solidify what you've learned without getting too lost.  I really appreciate this.  

    The slack community is also great, with people from all walks of life who want to help each other learn and grow.

    All in all, the instructors' level of caring and empathy is well above any other course or prebootcamp I've been a part of. And that makes all the difference in the world.

    For me, definitely wasn't worth the money. I joined SkillCrush because I read such good reviews on SwitchUp and Course Report, and because I thought it was for my target demographic (woman, beginner coder). The truth is, it's *way way way WAY overpriced*. There are much, much better programs out there to learn how to code for a fraction of the cost (freecodecamp or the book series "A Smarter Way to Learn" is by far my favorite and helped me exponentially more than SkillCrush did). SkillCrush does offer a 30 day money-back guarantee, though, and it's completely my own fault for not utilizing that. I signed up for the course, and then suddenly became swamped at work at the end of the year and didn't have a chance to properly start the classes, and by the time I realized that I was dissatisfied, it was too late. I tried messaging and asking if I could get a partial refund at least but I was told that I couldn't because they offer the 30 day guarantee (fair enough). 

    The videos are short and easy to understand, but in my opinion not nearly thorough enough. And then they don't give you nearly enough exercises to practice what you have learned. 

    I feel like I ended up wasting $1300 and now I don't really have the budget to purchase much cheaper courses/books etc that I have been recommended by friends, other beginner coders. I bought this at the very beginning of my journey - it was a bit of an impulse buy because I had no idea where to start in learning how to code, and I thought that this would be a comprehensive program that would teach me the way, and it definitely was not. 

    If the course was a fraction of the price, I would say it would be worth it, but for this price point, absolutely definitely better stuff out there.

    I am in the Skillcrush Front End Developer Blueprint and  I have nearly completed my first of four sections.  Most people my age have already had their big careers - I'm late to the game and totally new to tech.  I'm not even sure I LOVE tech, but I know that these are important skills to have and I really enjoy problem solving.  So here I am trying to stay current.  All of that said, before I even signed up for Skillcrush I had taken a few free courses on line to get my feet wet and see if learning to code was something I wanted to put any or more time and effort into. I am so glad I signed up for the Skillcrush course.  It wasn't a huge financial commitment and having been in the course for a month or so now, I can see that it is/was the perfect next step for me.  I think the team at Skillcrush has put together a perfect program for people just like me.  The way they have designed the course is extrememly user friendly.  I feel like they have thought of everything and have anticipated how I might be feeling as a new learner.  That's been the biggest surprise! For a "tech" company, Skillcrush feels very friendly, supportive, natural, easy going and warm, They totally get me! Every next step in the curriculum is challenging but at the same time I feel like they understand how hard it is and so they talk you through the steps and the reasoning.  They break it down into manageable bits and explain things that need explaining.  In short, I feel understood and supported on my new coding journey.  This is all super new for me and I feel a little nervous everytime I start a new section. . . but then that sweet banjo music starts playing and I see Adda in the video and I know I'm going to get through it, step by step.  I am "crushing it" - thanks to you!

    Skillcrush is a self-paced online coding camp. The price is very reasonable for all of the materials you receive as a part of the blueprints. I have been working on the lessons for less than a month, and I am very impressed by the knowledge, patience, and presentation of the instructors. I have researched coding camps (both location-based and online) for a couple of years, and Skillcrush exceeds my expectations by far. I am grateful to have found them. The courses are challenging, but doable. The Skillcrush instructors are readily available to answer any questions and concerns you may have. All in all, they are a great choice for someone who is unable to physically attend a coding bootcamp. And the price is a fraction of the cost of other bootcamps.  They offer career counseling, which I have not experienced yet, but based on the courses and instructors, I expect that to be equally as impressive.

    I started this course only a few weeks ago and it was exactly what I was looking for. When they say this is for anyone and specifically designed for beginners, they mean it. The curriculum and video lessons are very thought out and fill in all the gaps that I feel a lot of other "beginner" courses lack. You get everything, video lessons, information to read, projects to work on, quizzes, and a community of students and instructors to ask questions to at any time. So far all the instructors have been very helpful and extremely responsive. I would definitely recommend this course and plan on taking more in the future.  

    I selected N/A for job assistance because I haven't been in the class long enough for this to come up, so I can't really comment on that yet.
