    The Skillcrush Break into Tech course is made up of 21 classes to train (women) to enter the tech world. I received a free promotion of the User Experience Design courses.

    The classes are great; interesting, concise, and informative. Skillcrush excels in career advice and mentorship. Direct access to tutors by email and zoom to answer questions and review assignments. There is also help with writing a resume, creating a portfolio, and the other steps necessary to break into a totally new career.

    I am very happy that I invested in this course and recommend it without reservations.

    The curriculum is organized in a very intuitive and easy to follow manner, with a lot more resources than I had hoped to be provided. The instructors and counselors are really quick to respond, very encouraging, and are like awesome coaches. I really get a sense that the culture at Skillcrush is super supportive and truly wants everyone to succeed. I have not looked for a job yet, but have a feeling that the team would also be very helpful. I feel very blessed to have found Skillcrush and look forward to continue learning from the school. Thank you Skillcrush!

    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.

    I've had a lot of professional training in my career, in addition to my Master's degree, and hands down Skillcrush is one of the most effective, efficient and enjoyable learning experiences I've had. It's accessible and iterative. The curriculum is organized in digestible chunks - each lesson builds on the previous one, so new and technical coursework never seems intimidating. The Skillcrush team are also super responsive on Slack, in live Q&A sessions and over email. I've been in plenty of University classes where I was basically ignored.. this is the opposite of that. Finally, the documentation is top-notch. Notes, cheat sheets, articles.. it's all available and I've already started cobbling together my own reference library from their knowledge bases. I think this class is a bargain.

    Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my experience thus far at Skillcrush. The HTML & CSS course was a lot of fun while also being very informative. The instructors are all super helpful and provide a multitude of resources. 
    If I had to offer feedback for one thing, however, I think having more exercises and practices would be great. This is kind of a small nitpick though as Skillcrush definitely offers various websites that have additional information and exercises. Also the student community and instructors are readily available. The Coding Camp offered for free is also great for anyone who wants to dip their toes into the world of coding.

    This course is not cheap, but it’s worth every penny!!

    I joined the Break into Tech course after trying out their free bootcamp. I was hooked after the bootcamp and couldn’t get Skillcrush off my mind. After a few years of wanting to learn to code but never really getting it, Skillcrush was the first course that really allowed me to understand what was going on. I decided to invest and have not regretted one bit.

    They teach really well and put a lot of heart, effort and thinking into how to make it better and better, and it shows. They structure lessons into bite-sized pieces, easy to understand, really digestable, and give you opportunities to practice at the right point to help build up your skill level. 

    What’s even more amazing is that they give you feedback and reassurances at just the right point of time too to make sure you don’t lose confidence in yourself (which is easy to happen giving you’re learning something new and so technical), plus they regularly ask you for comments to see what’s on your mind and help you out. And they use your feedback to continuously improve their course!

    The instructors provide really timely feedback (within 12 hours in my own experience) and it’s not just a template response. When you have specific issues in mind, they really can help you out by answering you directly or pointing you in the right direction. 

    I also like their idea of fast-track paths to keep us in focus in learning one major skill first. I have a tendency to wander around and without their fast-track concept I would have been going all over trying to learn everything, but in the end not really being able to learn anything. But their fast-track path sets out clear steps and I just have to follow. 

    Some people might say you can get the same content for free online, which is probably true, but without this structured curriculum and support, it’s not easy to learn. I think I’m paying especially for the Skillcrush’s team in deciding HOW to teach us, which has definitely lowered the threshold for learning tech. 

    Really I just have good things to say about them - it is a worthwhile purchase!

    I was so reluctant to commit to a paid bootcamp, I found difficult to imagine why it would be better than learning with free resources. I took the free course offered by Skillcrush and we clicked. Also they were offering everything that I lacked with free courses: structure, support and a clear path to achieve my goals. I signed up for the Break Into Tech Blueprint and I just finished the first part of the Front-end dev fast track. I'm so glad with my decision to join! Now I understand what all the great reviews are all about. They give you all the very important fundamental pieces you need in order to understand what are you doing and why. They check in with you frequently and the slack community is super friendly. I'm so happy that I'm finally learning things properly, it's such a relief!
    P.S: In case you are not a beginner: I've been teaching myself how to code for the past year from C to Python and game dev. I find the pace and level of the course very good.
