      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.

      Skylab does not only prepare students to learn Javascript and the MEAN stack, but the whole idea of being a developer, making it easier to you to adapt and learn any other language, in the future. Skylab gives you the skills that the IT industry is demanding and the tools that a developer needs.

      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.

      Skylab is a " show me your code and explain me how it ticks " kind of coding bootcamp. Real developers know their code inside-out and can understand other's code is something I learned here and I'm more than happy with the 10 awesome weeks. Juanma, the lead instructor, is an like an encyclopedia of web development knowledge. His understanding of javascript, his ways of teaching, how he understands where and what you are doing wrong and how should you approach a problem is something out of this world. My companions were one of the most friendly, hard-working and similar minded people who strived for the same goals everyday - to be better as a person and as a team together. The environment to study was very peaceful and the mini coffee and lunch breaks we had together was enjoyable. A perfect combination of affordable price, awesome teaching team, great management, cool friends and study materials.

      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.

      Hace unos meses decidí dar el paso y dejarlo todo para perseguir una meta por la cual llevaba tiempo soñando.
      De mi paso por Skylab solo puedo decir cosas buenas. Desde el primer día que entré por la puerta me sentí apoyado por todo el team, y sentí ese extra humano que aporta cada uno de ellos, y creo que ese extra solo se puede encontrar en Skylab.
      Además, tengo la suerte de poder decir que una vez finalizado el Bootcamp he conseguido mi primer empleo como web developer.

      After three years working as a full stack developer, I decided to make this bootcamp because I wanted to improve as a programmer. There I learned TDD, CleanCode, the MERN stack, as well as working with agile methodologies.

      Soon after finishing the bootcamp, I found a job. Really, I think it was worth to do this bootcamp because of the people I shared this time with and all I learned.

      I have been working as a teacher for 20 years. When I was 44 I felt it was time to change. I finished Multimedia and enrolled in Skylab. This was the best choice of my professional life. It has been a difficult experience, working many hours to achieve my main goal: becoming a young developer. After six intense months, I'm proud to say that I work as a developer, but also to say that I've met great professionals and great people who lead Skylab. If you want to refocus your professional environment on development, don't hesitate. Skylab is your place. ;o)

      Skylab Coders Family

      Skylab es mucho más que una academia. 

      Esperas aprender conceptos técnicos y adquirir conocimiento picando código, pero no esperas ganarte una familia. Roc Boronat nº 35 se convierte en tu segunda (o incluso primera) dirección. ¿Se sufre? Sí, pero te lo pasas genial sufriendo en compañía y sacando las cosas en modo “mente colmena”.

      Yo entré en Skylab sin experiencia previa en programación. Ahora estoy trabajando como desarrolladora y sigo aprendiendo gracias a la base que he ganado en solo once semanas. No cambiaría nada.

      Si tuviera que describir a Skylab en una oración, el titulo de la review lo seria

      Ya habiendo programado durante casi toda mi vida buscaba una entrada al mundo Web y a continuar mi formación como programador, acudí a Skylab y lo que encontré es que no sabia lo mucho que me faltaba por aprender, no solo va desde ser un buen programador y de lo que se espera de el , si no que también aprendes muchísimas cosas desde como funciona el mundo laboral, hasta convivir y trabajar en un equipo

      Desde el primer día sentiras a Skylab como tu segunda casa gracias a la excelente atención de todo el Staff,  junto con el agradable ambiente y la familia que se forma entre todo el personal de Skylab y tus compañeros

      A día de hoy, habiendo ya finalizado el curso y conseguido mi objetivo (Trabajar en una buena empresa) , puedo decir que a sido una de las mejores decisiones de mi vida (y creo que la mejor). Tanto por lo aprendido a nivel de programación, como como a nivel personal, sintiéndome capaz de afrontar situaciones y problemas que antes no habría podido 

      Si lo que buscáis es una de aprender, crecer y trabajar como desarrollador web, esta es posiblemente la mejor inversión de tu vida, una Oportunidad Única.

      Cuesta tomar la decisión de dejar tu trabajo fijo, tus compañeros, tu rutina, tu zona de confort  y cambiar de sector;  cuesta  volver a estudiar y cuesta muchas veces no entender el 100%  de código y cuando lo entiendes mínimamente, te lo refactorizan; cuesta dejar tu vida durante 11 semanas:  tus amigos, pareja, familia, gimnasio y dedicar  cada tarde y todos los fines de semana a escribir código; y sobretodo,  cuesta a veces mantener la fe de que todo saldrá bien, pero os aseguro que sale bien. 
      Yo trabajaba en un laboratorio de análisis microbiológico de alimentos y me gustaba mucho, pero estaba estancada y como la programación era una cosa que siempre había sentido curiosidad, me aventuré a dejar el trabajo y me apunté al bootcamp de Skylab, y os aseguro que es una de las mejores cosas que he hecho en mi vida. A parte de todo lo que he aprendido,  los profesores me han ayudado en todo momento, David y Diana siempre han estado allí para resolver  todas la dudas o miedos  que mis compañeros o yo hemos tenido  y sobretodo el grupo que se ha formado con los compañeros,  casi una familia para ayudarnos en lo que sea.
      Y aunque dudé en su momento de si podría conseguir trabajo, en dos semanas después de terminar el bootcamp ya era developer! Y ahora trabajo en un proyecto muy motivador , con un equipo de gente muy agradable y que en todo momento me ayuda. 
      Mi consejo: si quieres cambiar de vida (y estas dispuesto a dejarte la piel) no lo dudes en apuntarte a Skylab!  :D
