    Best web developing course!!

    I am on my way to becoming a fullstack developer and I am so happy I choose skillcrush. When I was looking for a place to learn, the most important part was having a teacher to talk to individually incase I got stuck. I am so happy with skillcrush because their responses are so quick and respectful. They even have live zoom chats that have helped immensely! I am so excited to keep chuggin away and I know they have my back to get me to my dream of web developing!

    I'm glad I gave Skillcrush a chance

    I'm glad I gave Skillcrush a chance when I decided to pursue a career change into tech. I'm currently taking the Break Into Tech - Front End Developer fast track. Skillcrush lessons are self paced but without deadlines for assignments, plus you get feedback from Instructors and TAs in a timely manner. I absolutely love the community support from like-minded people who are also looking for a career change. It's never too late for anyone to do something different. You don't need a backgrou...

    New Skillcrush Student

    Hello!
    Skillcrush has provided me the opportunity to learn at my own pace and the instructors respond to my every email question within minutes!  The instructors are inspirational, positive, and communicate in an easy-to-understand manner.  This is an excellent platform to learn and they provide career guidance.  So far I am having fun learning, and I look forward to getting my first job in tech very soon, with their help of course!!

    Embarrassed

    I am absolutely embarrassed that I not only made this purchase but initially gave this course such a high review. This is a bare bones dip in the shallow end of front end web development. This will not get your anywhere close to being ready for a real web development position. Their react section was an atrocious joke. The javascript here is nothing but a taste test of the absolute basics. Once you complete the course they basically tell you to start looking for freelance positions after...

    If your life situation is a little less than conventional (and whose isn't, right now? Hello, 2021! 🤣) but you know in your bones that you need to start putting in the work to switch careers like, yesterday, Skillcrush is an excellent place to begin. I'm a current student taking the Break into Tech course, with a focus on front-end development.

    Breaking into Tech with Skillcrush

    I spent 18 years in a career that was not for me. For a long time I thought I couldn't change careers but after searching around for a boot camp style course I settled on Skillcrush. I chose them due to the five day free boot camp introduced me to how they work. I am just completing the HTML and CSS part of course and am amazed at how far I have come. I don't really have anything negative to say. It's good stuff.

    Skillcrush | Break into Tech | 10 stars

    I was motivated to give coding/web development a go whilst I was on furlough in my HR role through the COVID lockdown in May 2020, after researching the roles and seeing the growing demand in jobs along with the salaries and benefits included. I first started out by watching and practicing to code from YouTube videos and continued by enrolling in a free coding camp and bought a £20 Udemy course. These helped teach me some of the basics, however, they weren't in depth or motivating enough...

    Break into tech

    To be honest I am really really shocked that there are so many good reviews about Skillcrush in here. I have bought the Break into tech course, and have been learning coding since 2020 February. The HTML and CSS parts of that course were quiet okay. But JavaScript, PHP, Git, jQuery - those are a joke! I am very very disappointed. The information that they provide is not enough at all. I feel like I have wasted 1500$ for a childish course and after it I was not able to find a job. The pro...

    Visual Design Course

    After recently changing to a UX career 3 years ago, I realized my visual skills were lacking. Although I am capable of teaching myself, with a job and everyday life, I needed the structure of having a curriculum laid out for me that could be worked on at my own pace. I was so excited to hear about Skillcrush from a friend! I am now finishing the visual design course and trying to decide which bootcamp to take next! May change to a different tech career - who knows! The price is right, the ...
