Literally, the best course I have ever taken and an amazing learning experience.
When I was in Skylab I felt like part of a family not only with the teachers and the classmates but also with David, the founder. He is so close to the students and alumni at any time; before, during and after the bootcamp.
A remarkable mention to the teachers, with a great capacity to synthesize, full of experience in the field and helpful anytime you have a doubt, that you cannot find to any online course.
Also, the adjusted cost of the course… believe me the course’s value is much higher than what it costs.
To me, all this makes the difference to any other similar course.
I highly recommend it, without a doubt the best choice in Barcelona.
Un gran programa de estudio que ayuda a los estudiantes a introducirse en el sector del desarrollo web y a tener las herramientas necesarias para poder comenzar con cualquier otra tecnología, gracias a la solida base que se obtiene a lo largo de todo el bootcamp.
Una gran familia de profesionales, que siempre está dispuesta a ayudar en todo lo necesario, tenga o no que ver con el curso.
He de remarcar que llegue de Málaga sin mucha confianza en el curso, pero me lleve una gran sorpresa y antes de terminar la primera semana ya sabía que había elegido el mejor camino que podía seguir. Y ahora no volveré para Málaga.
En resumen, profesionales, una gran familia que te ayuda y te apoya a sobrellevar los días más difíciles y con mayor nivel de estrés.
Great teachers, a lot of knowledge, hard working people... if you like to learn to code for hours with a high level of intensity and perseverance this is the bootcamp for you. The best tools in the front-end and the back-end for developers today. Also during the bootcamp they will bring you a lot of people from differents areas to instruct you about new incommings softwares, the most used tools in the market or help you with the requirements to get a good job.
A few months ago I was looking for a bootcamp to start with my dev journey. I visited and studied different options here in Barcelona and finally after the admission test/interviews I had to choose between two academies (Codeworks and Skylab Coders). I put all my money in Skylab because of the teacher experience and the class schedule (amount of hours / day) and really I can't be more happy with the results.
I've met a lot of teachers in my life (an engineering career, two masters and different training courses), but just a few of them I can remember for been really good in what they do. I can say that Juan Ma (Skylab lead professor) is part of that tiny list now. He keeps things "simple", push you forward and keeps you focus through all the course.
Off course, he is not alone, Alex, David and Manuela will also give you support through all the bootcamp, they will make you feel like home. Skylab it's like a little family and I can't recommend it enough, you won't be disappointed.
Remarkable experience! Great study program focused on prepare the student to get immediately inserted on the tech sector. It's a big challenge if you never coded before, but you can always prepare yourself on the precourse before the real class beggins. I highly recommend Skylab, awesome professors and better persons.
This course changed my life in just 10 weeks. It's been a super intensive experience where not only I've learnt the curricular skills but also I've been given the opportunity to become part of this amazing family. You literally feel home. From the director to the alumni everyone has an awesome attitude that transmits the right vibes to make the most of the skills you lean, they create a great environment where you enjoy your time while learning and help you when you feel down. The teacher Juanma has an unbelievable ability to synthesize and transmit knowledge far beyond anything I've seen before. Furthermore, the price is ridiculous compared to the other options in Barcelona, no doubt this could be the best investment you make. Last but not least, I can proudly say that Skylab made of me a developer .
Having no idea of programming previous to attending the bootcamp it was a really scary decision to make.
However in the end it payed off. The curriculum is very complete and the teachers are incredibly up to date on all the topics and constantly provide information and help on ever new subject.
It is not all theory thankfully since ever day you have to complete excercises or small projects so you can show yourself that you have in fact learned what you are shown.
Would highly recommend this bootcamp.
Response From: David Monreal of Skylab Coders Academy
After talking to you, we will share what improvements we've done since you attended Skylab Coders.
Our first courses were 9 weeks long, but student's feedback (yours included) pointed to the fact some more space would be necessary for certain subjects. In 2017 we addressed that issue and increased the duration of the full-stack web development to 10 weeks. We now have more time to go deeper mainly into back-end fundamentals.
The industry has been hiring all our students since the very beginning, but we are continuously looking for ways to be a better Bootcamp and make our students better. Both the students and the companies hiring them are our main sources of improvements. We have a 94% placement ratio, but we need to make ALL our students to find a job as web developers!
Una formación fabulosa de la mano de un equipo estupendo. Saben enseñar y a pesar de que la materia es intensa se hace fluida por el cómo se imparte y explica. Tuve la suerte de ser de la primera promoción y es la mejor decisión que pude tomar para tomar un curso de estas características.
I had been working on the industry for a few years, mainly as a UI/UX designer and doing the markup for my designs (HTML and CSS). I felt my career growth was kind of stagnated and I was getting more and more curious about "real" programming. I stsrted doing all kinds of stuff with jQuery but I felt that I needed some solid knowledge, but I didn't feel like getting into a 2-3 years degree again, so that's when I discovered the bootcamp concept.
Since I already had some experience in the field, there were a few days when I felt I was not learning as much (mainly the days focused on git, html and css), but that will be different depending on your background.
You finish the bootcamp more than ready to get a job as a developer. I started working roughly a month after as a fullstack developer, and I keep getting contacted for job opportunities very often.
If you are decided on becoming a developer, Skylab is probably one of the best choices you'll find.
For almost a year, I tried to learn the basics of Web Development by myself (and with some help of great friends and awesome online resources), and I learned quite a lot about HTML, CSS and a little about JS; however, somehow, I got lost on the way, wich is pretty common as I can see, so I decided to do a bootcamp to get out of the dark side.
So, do I recommend the bootcamp? Of course I do. :)
It has been an amazing and very intense experience. I checked all the bootcamps in Barcelona, and I have no doubt that Skylab has been the right choice. Very happy and proud to be a Skylab Coder alumni. And I was contracted as a developer before the bootcamp's end.
Back-End: APIs, AJAX, Node.js, Express, Mongoose, MongoDB, ES6
Other: SVC (Git), TDD (Jasmine), Agile(Trello) , Mid-Term Group Project, Final Project
I was wondering how I'm going to be a true programmer ... First I was looking for a Master Degree ... there are no good options in Barcelona. Then I read about the bootcamp concept ... and only with ten google's searchs and four phone calls ... I decide to get into what I thought was the best option in Barcelona ... And I was right...
Please, feel free to contact if you have any question.
PD: Before finish the bootcamp... I had two job interviews (We finish 2 days ago...)
Es una experiencia que dificilmente con palabras se puede explicar si no lo vives con tu propia carne.
Primero empieza a ser tu sueño hecho realiad, reunirte con un grupo de personas desconocidas que piensan y sienten la misma pasión que tú por vivir 10 semanas intensivas por aprender a ser un buen programador, y delante tener 2 profesores que van a repartir leña.
Empieza la estampida de información y el gustazo por recivirla. Luego te invaden dudas, de "¿qué estoy haciendo aquí?" , vas cogiendo cada vez más confianza con los compañeros, y a medida que pasan las semanas, simplemente se va creando una familia, y te das cuenta que han tenido las mismas dudas y preguntas que tú!, eso refuerza más i se crea una piña.
Al final abordas tanto conocimiento, que ni tu mismo te das cuenta de lo que sabes hacer, hasta que te pones mano a la obra con el proyecto final, y con la ayuda de los profesores, y de los compañeros, es alucinante lo que al final eres capaz de hacer, y no sólo eso, sino que un dia picaste a la puerta skylabcoders, te acogieron, te criaron, y ahora sólo queda volar! Una de las experiencias más bonitas de mi vida, Muchas gracias a todo el equipo y compañeros!
I'm currently doing the bootcamp (09/02/2017) and it's surpassing my initial expectations. Teachers are concerned that we understand what we do and why we do it. The human factor is as important as the technical part and this helps us to learn day by day in a hard bootcamp. Never I had develope software in any web technology until now, but in just four weeks in the bootcamp I'm already able to do a complete project, operational and professional front-end. Amazing!!
