      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.

      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...

      Great entrepreneur, great teachers, great place (5 minutes from Plaça Catalunya, the main place in Barcelona), great content (pure Javascript, no Ruby, no PHP, no Java, no Python... just one language to domain everything) and great "MEAN Companions". 

      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!!

      Soy arquitecta y viendo como esta la arquitectura por la crisis decidí cambiar de profesión. Encontré el bootcamp de Skylab coders y me lancé a la piscina! Y ahora estoy muy contenta por arriesgarme ya que trabajo en una buena empresa de programación. Recomiendo el curso al 100%, es duro, no lo negaré pero vale la pena. La gente que conoces, los professores, ... acaba siendo una familia. Así que no te lo pienses más y apuntate!
