    I'm currently enrolled in the Skillcrush Break Into Tech Blueprint (Skillcrush 101) and the UX Research (Skillcrush 108) courses. I love that the courses are self-paced, which accommodates my full-time work schedule. And although the courses are self-paced, I don't ever feel alone. There are an abundance of help options when needed including: instructor interaction, help via email, and the Skillcrush Student Community. The instructors are knowledge experts and I approach each class with the attitude that I'm a sponge & going to soak up everything they have to offer. The Master Classes give present detailed information on any of several areas of interest for students, and they're very well done. The courses are detailed and I feel I being well-equipped for a role in the job marketplace. I recommend Skillcrush highly and have referred a few friends to the opportunity already. If you're looking to advance your carreer into a high-paying industry with an abundance of opportunity, Skillcrush is the place to be.

    I joined the "Break Into Tech Blueprint" just over a month ago and I am so thankful I did!  I have been toying with the idea of changing careers from teaching to web development for over a year now and have tried various other methods and classes to learn the skills required to make this switch.  And, while, several of the other classes did provide helpful and useful information, Skillcrush has been the one to allow me to finally focus on the areas I need to improve on and gain the confidence to make a switch.  Their real life examples have allowed me to fully grasp each concept and to feel confident that I will have the skills to one day move into a new career.  Thank you so much Skillcrush!!!

    I've been completing the Break Into Tech Blueprint and I've been loving it so far! I was debating just learning by myself with free tutorials on Youtube and the other interwebs. But ultimately I decided to go with Skillcrush because I liked the idea of being part of a community, having actual instructors you can talk to, and just the overall vibe is super fun and approachable. 

    Yes I could learn the same materials from disparate places, but everything is in one friendly place and you get access to industry knowledge, master classes from actual experts, webinars, the whole thing. I was really impressed with how quickly my questions have been answered and I'm looking forward to the coaching sessions! Now I just want to tell everyone about it, especially my sister who I think would love it too!

    I love the lessons and how they incorporate projects with step by step lessons.  This is a mixture of video lessons, written lessons and quizzes along with live sessions that you can attend via zoom meetings  I like that you have a suggested timeline, but can go at your own pace.  There is also a wonderful support site on slack where you can meet other students and instructors, ask questions, post your work for feedback, and network.  Everything is high quality including the video lessons. This is not just a course of videos to snore through like you might find on Udemy and Lynda. It is interactive complete with projects and portfolio building projects.  I have been taking this Break Into Tech Program for two weeks and so far everyone has been very helpful. Actually, I have found the support to be PHENOMENAL! There are also live chat features attached to individual lessons for quick answers to questions.  I have not gotten far enough in the program to rate the job assistance.  Will update later, but I gotta tell ya.  I Love this course!!!!

    Brilliant! I'm so happy I made the decision to study with Skillcrush. They make learning a complex subject fun and easy! I've read books on WP Development, tried Udemy and Lynda....but I couldn't understand any of them. Finally I have some clarity on WordPress, clear on best practices and insider industry knowledge. Skillcrush has been an awesome experience. If you are sitting on the fence, I would say do it, you won't regret it.

    I started the Skillcrush Break into Tech Blueprint three weeks ago and I couldn't be happier with the experience so far.

    The content is delivered brilliantly - cut down into bite-sized chunks and daily lessons, with clear explanations, repetition and tasks to consolidate learning. I feel like I've learned so much in just a few weeks and I'm very excited to discover what's next!

    I would highly recommend this course to anyone who likes to work methodically and to chunk tasks down into manageable pieces.

    There is also signposting to a wealth of really useful resources, and so much support along the way from an online student community to live career counselling sessions. I feel like help is always at hand if I need it, and I've been especially impressed at how quickly I've received a response after submitting my feedback tasks.

    I've taken many different classes and have learned from many different sources:

    • Codecademy
    • Udacity Nanodegrees [ Full-stack Nanodegree ]
    • Grow with Google Scholarship program [ hosted by Udacity]
    • Free Code Camp
    • Thinkful
    • The Odin Project
    • etc.

    Each of these were valuable in there own ways but Skillcrush is great all around. Its website is minimal, its videos and readings succinct, its challenges are light-hearted but informative, its community is supportive, and the emphasis on job readiness is astounding! Me and my girlfriend are both taking Skillcrush courses and we love them.

    There's one more factor you must consider. Skillcrush is feminine, and it works for that reason. For reference, I am a man and one that's not very intouch with my feminine side but for skillcrush IT JUST WORKS. Listen, when you're dedicating hours of work a day everyday for months to sitting down at home infront of your computer the least comforting thing is a man awkwardly making jokes and starring intensly into the camera speaking monotone. Adda and her team are very spirited and lively, it's the right amount of excitement, and the right amount of feminism. Not the over-the-top brand that tends to contradict itself. Skillcrush proves women should not only be welcomed in tech but are quintessential!

    I'm enrolled in the Break into Tech Blueprint course and I can honestly say that this is the best decision that I've made for personal growth in a long time!

    It is refeshing to be part of a thriving on-line chat community, as well as on-going lessons that assist me in challenging myself in skills that were both dormant and not so dormant, like "problem solving".  

    I'm very new to technology but with the way that courses are taught, including the support by instructors, as well as the fact that the courses are self-paced, I find my self-confidence getting better and better.  :-D

    Enrolling in Skillcrush after taking the 10 day boot camp is the best thing that I've done in a long time.  The courses are self-paced, and as the courses progress, I'm learning a lot more about myself.

    The instructors are extremely compassionate about what they do and are always eager to offer a helping hand if needed.  

    I haven't progressed far enough along to begin the job assistance portion but feel confident that this training will result in a favorable outcome.  I am so glad that I'm part of the Skillcrush community and hope that someday I can give back what is so freely given to me.

    Hello, All~

    Overall, this course has been stellar. The hardest thing about it was trying to do the work and learn, on top of full time work and graduate school. That being said, just pacing myself made it happen. I took longer to complete the section, but don’t feel ashamed of it anymore now that I’m at the end of the tunnel.

    The instructors have been extraordinarily helpful and not only support our work but our wellbeing. It’s been an amazing experience in that regard.

    If you’re worried about the cost, I get it. Seriously - made me get a headache just thinking about it. However, paying the amount (and seeing my skills grow in multiple ways) was ironically a cool experience because I proved to myself that I can do anything.

    You can too, Sisters!
