    I'm nearly finished with Skillcrush's html/css class, and I'm really enjoying it! I taught myself quite a bit of html years ago (I copied and pasted source code and tweaked things bit by bit to see what changed), but a lot has changed since then, and it's been good to fill in the gaps and learn why things work the way they do. It's sort of like taking an English class when you already speak English. 

    I love being able to work at my own pace. Some days I can spent four hours on it, some days half an hour. It's all good. It's all progress.

    Adda explains everything really clearly. Having had instructors in the past who didn't, I really appreciate clear explanations, examples, and analogies to help make sense of things.

    All of the instructors answer questions quickly, and everyone is super helpful. 

    I love Skillcrush!

    I''ve been here for almost two weeks and feeling confident to build a website already. I must addmit having a background on html/css helped me quite a lot. The studies are provided in small sections therefore content is easy to absorb whether you have a background on coiding or not. Moreover, I have a career counselor who is there when i need help. 

    There is a community group to share your knwoledge/questiions. Feedback comes from the instructors and my peers.

    I feel more confident about my skills everyday. I know I willl be prepared to work in the field of FrontEnd Web Development probably before I'm done with this course.

    Skillcrush is highly recommended if you wish to break into Front/Back End Developement.

    I am actually a self-taught WP site implementer, and I am so, so glad I found Skillcrush. I was looking for a place to fill in all the blanks, and Skillcrush is it. I had no idea how to code a site from scratch, but after HTML&CSS I believe I can finally get a handle on it! Looking forward to responsive, yeah!

    Skillcrush is so inspiring, from the course organization to the expert women who 'have your back' when you need clarification on the simplest concept, to the feminists and super women they cite, past and present. It's what you need when you're feel you're facing an insurmountable challenge.

    Congratulations and many thanks to all of you at Skillcrush, keep up the good, valuable work. We will too!

    I'm enjoying my experience with Skillcrush.  This is the third time I've tried to learn to code and I'm a fairly new student but am proud to have already created two projects and am working on my third (the farthest I've progressed in the same amount of time learning to code compared to other courses I've tried).

    The Skillcrush lessons are fun, short, and brilliantly structured, which makes learning them easy and retaining the info -- or going back to refresh when you need to -- easy also.  The instructors and community of learners are very supportive and encouraging.  It's easy to get help when you need it and I've noticed some of the more advanced students chime in and help others also.  There is also a tracker at the top of your portal which shows your progress, and I find it motivating to know at all times how far I've progressed in the classes.

    I would recommend Skillcrush to any aspiring coder.  I'm looking forward to building my knowledge and skills as I continue through the lessons.

    Overall, I am happy that I chose to start learning coding basics with Skillcrush. I've created learning materials for many years, and I've got to say that the Skillcrush folks have done a really good job at taking complex, intimidating topics and breaking them down into easy to learn lessons. When I started, I really had no idea what CSS even was, and now I can look at some code and understand what's going on. They've got a friendly, understanding, empathetic approach which, for me, makes a big difference.

    The instructors are always available. If you get stuck on a project, they don't necessarily give you the answer straight away, they give you hints on where to find your errors and self-correct - which goes a very long way in helping you learn. There are loads of resources available for students and practical suggestions and projects that help you create real-live, working websites.

    If you're completely new to learning any type of code this class is a great start! I just completed the HTML and CSS course. I felt the course progressed really well in terms of building my confidence in the beginning with support tools and resources and then getting progressively challenging. The videos in the course reinforce the text that follow each lesson. The quizzes are great at ensuring that the high level information of the chapter sticks. Overall I would recommend it to any of my friends interesting in learning front end development.

    I highly recommend Skillcrush to anyone who is willing to challenge themselves to learn some invaluable skills that will undoubtedly continue to positively affect their life. I was completely new to the Break into Tech program (my background is in Violin Performance). Skillcrush made what seemed daunting and intimidating into an organized, instructive, community-based, and achievable possibility. I am now heavily invested in this new adventure in my life and largely looking forward to the career changes that will allow my life to prosper within the near future.

    I stumbled upon Skillcrush wanting to add more to my resume and possibly change careers. The experience has been great! I've tried some of the other free online coding bootcamps, but always felt there was something missing in the knowledge base when trying to complete projects. Skillcrush has filled in those knowledge gaps and expanded on it. They have an excellent balance between video and written tutorials, then reinforce with hands on experience.
    The instructor and student community is great, you learn quickly that there's a bunch other people in the same boat as you and are very supportive. Also whenever I've had questions for the instructors they've been very quick to reply and help out.

    Enrolling in Skillcrush is the best career decision I’ve made yet, waaaay better than that overpriced, generic 4-year university degree I got. 

    When I decided I wanted to become a web developer, I spent several months trying various free online courses and boot camps, and nothing worked for me. I learned some skills, but didn’t feel like I really knew what I was doing with them. When I started Phase 1 of Skillcrush, I realised that I had already learned most of the information I needed to start coding as a career, but I needed Skillcrush to put it all together. And they did. Not only did I learn a lot of new and useful skills and tips, but I learned how to put all of the pieces of the puzzle together and become a confident coder. 

    “Confident” is the key word here, because the information provided in Skillcrush and the clearly guided layout of the courses allow you to build your knowledge base from the ground up and become more and more sure of yourself with every lesson. After Phase 1, I already feel confident that I can make a classy, fully functioning website for a client and get paid for it. I honestly wish I had found Skillcrush before I wasted my time on all of those other free courses. 

    Thanks Adda!

    So far I have gotten through the 1st part of the basic first course. I have enjoyed the clarity and throughness of the curriculum. I like how the learning process is set up. I am anxious to get to the point where I choose a more indepth path to go and start earning money with what I know. 

    I have gotten several emails regarding how Skillcrush will help me find work. I am excited to get to this point, hopefully soon. I wish I could be going through everything a bit faster than I am. 

    So grateful for the time and energy it took to put such a great program together.

    The courses are really nicely laid out and easy to both understand and get through, regardless of your schedule. Everything is presented nicely and the amount of information is just right - not too much and not too little. It feels like I am learning loads without killing my self. I plan to take more Skillcrush courses once my current one is complete.
