      I did this bootcamp during summer of 2017 because at that moment I didn't have a job and I was looking for a change in my life. So, I decided to find a place where study all these things that companies and startups are looking for right now.

      My idea was IronHack. I did an interview at Ironhack and I liked it, but I was not entirely sure that was the right place for me. After that, I discovered Skylab on this website (I think so), so I went to speak with them. I have to say that after to talk with David, Àngels and Bea, I decided to sign-up the same day and it was a great choice.

      I finished the bootcamp 3 weeks ago and when I look back I can see how much I've learned. Some recommendations for new students:

      -If you are decided to do a bootcamp, be open mind and positive.

      -Do all the pre-course (very important IMHO)

      -Study a lot after the bootcamp. After all, the most important thing is "learn how to learn" and then keeping learning new stuff, because this is changing all the time. In this course you will learn Basics of code, but then you will have to study deeper by your own. So, the most important thing is your approach, because like this you will find how to solve mistakes during the course and then. BTW, thanks to this bootcamp I've found a job as a Front-End Developer!

      In short, highly recommended :)

      He hecho el bootcamp de skylab de web development de 10 semanas. Concretamente con el MEAN STACK (Mongo, expressjs, angular, nodejs). Sin duda alguna ha sido la mejor decisión que hubiere podido tomar, una semana antes de acabar el curso consegui trabajo, he empezado a la semana siguiente, justo cuando ya había acabado el curso. He podido cumplir un sueño gracias a Skylab que ES DEDICARME A AQUELLO QUE ME PONE LOS PELOS DE PUNTA CADA MAÑANA. Estoy trabajando como fullstack developer, usando tecnologias algunas de ellas aprendidas en el curso y otras no. Pese a ello el bootcamp nos da una base tan buen y solida que somos capaces de aprender nuevas tecnologias con mayor facilidad por lo que aprender Angular 4 y Typescript no será facil pero es más que posible y en unas dos semanas espero estar más que al día en estas tecnologias.

      Puede parecer que Skylab pueda ser un curso más de desarrollo web ya que hoy en día hay tantos y tantos.... PERO NO ES ASÍ! Skylab es un curso donde solo personas CON GRAN CAPACIDAD DE ESFUERZO Y SACRIFICIO PUEDEN ENTRAR. Skylab es un curso donde todo el mundo con este perfil puede entrar SIN NECESIDAD DE SABER PROGRAMAR. Disponen de un precurso EXCELENTE para introducirse a la programación a más cuentan con profesores magnificos que pueden seguir al alumno más avanzado allí donde quiera y seguir instruyendole mucho más lejos.

      Recomendaría skylab sin duda, gracias a ellos he podido cambiar y pasar de estudiar derecho a dedicarme a la programación y seguir con una carrera que empeze hace un año y medio atras que es multimedia.

      La INVERSIÓN que he hecho la volvería a hacer sin dudarlo!

      Muchas gracias SKYLAB!!!

      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.

      Mi experiencia en Skylab ha sido fantástica de principio a fin, el temario impartido se basa en lo que el mercado requiere, el staff y el ambiente de grupo que se genera durante el bootcamp son magnificos y un apoyo durante estos 3 intensos meses y por último el formato es increible, considero que he salido muy bien preparado y prueba de ello es que después de 1 mes des de que finalizó el bootcamp puedo decir oficialmente que trabajo como web developer!!

      Skylab es, sin lugar a dudas, el mejor bootcamp del mundo. Todo el sistema de enseñanza se basa en la empleabilidad, se profundiza en áreas como las metodologías ágiles, los frameworks más demandados y el unit testing, skills que marcan la diferencia en un developer. También quiero destacar la parte humana de los gestores y de los profesores, poniendo siempre el foco en el alumno. Y algo que realmente diferencia a Skylab es el ambiente que se genera entre los compañeros, se crea una comunidad siempre dispuesta a ayudarte. 

      La exigencia es máxima, tienes que dar lo mejor de ti mismo y trabajar muy duro, pero luego se ven los resultados. Una prueba de la calidad que tiene el bootcamp es poder realizar un proyecto final Full Stack utilizando una librería a la que nunca antes te has enfrentado, como fue mi caso. 

      Si estás buscando un bootcamp que te permita tener un empleo como desarrollador, Skylab es tu mejor elección.

      Después de terminar el bootcamp y de tan solo 8 días de búsqueda activa de empleo, encontré trabajo como desarrollador. Recomiendo encarecidamente estudiar en Skylab. Dudo que haya una mejor escuela donde poder pasar de 0 a 100 en el mundo de la programación. Si quieres dar un vuelco en positivo a tu carrera profesional, Skylab es el sitio donde lograrlo.

      Muy buena experiencia y la mejor decisión de mi vida, cuando empecé a interesarme por la programación sabía que necesitaba un cambio en mi vida y Skylab lo hizo posible. Cambié totalmente mi sector laboral en cuestión de pocos meses,  me he sentido cuidado y respaldado por cada uno de los integrantes de la escuela(Diana, David y Manu), incluido también, como no, de mis compañeros. 
      Escribo esto dos meses después de haber acabado el bootcamp con un trabajo nuevo y muy contento con la decisión que tome ahora hará un año más o menos.
