    I have a natural science background and decided to switch careers to the field of Data Science and Data Analytics. My motivation to take the SPICED Data Science Bootcamp was to brush up my Python programming skills and to learn the current data science methods in hands on projects. I had already some self taught experience in python, but was not confident enough in my programming skills to use them in my projects. The bootcamp changed that!
    Each week brought a new project with increased difficulty level that often seemed impossible to achieve at first, but with ceaseless help of the teachers and full time commitment every hurdle could be taken. The curriculum included a variety of data science methods and the mathematical theory to go with it. Because of the big number of topics, it was often not possible to explore everything in depth. However students were encouraged to focus on specific fields they were interested in and neglect others. Also, by design, every challenge was a team effort. There was no toxic behaviour and cooperation was always encouraged by the SPICED team. The teachers often went out of the way to help with bug-fixing or explanations of complex topics.
    In the end, the bootcamp gave me exactly what I hoped to get. It gave me the confidence to apply for Data Science positions as a career changer and allowed me to enter the thrilling and wide field of data science. I had a great time!

    I completed the Data science boot camp with Spiced academy 2021 April - Jul and I can honestly say it was exciting, tough and it will push your limits and test you. 
    All the teachers and staff were helpful and went above and beyond to provide a quality instruction environment and they also provided HR support and pointers on how to improve your Github, CV, and LinkedIn profiles to help improve their graduate's chances at the Job market. 
    On a personal note, I wish I had practiced more exercises with solutions on the topics of Pandas and Python as this would really really help during the course also get second computer monitor.
    I wish future students good luck on their journey to becoming Data Scientists and Developers.

    During lockdown I completed the Data Science Boot Camp to 100% remote. Which was a quiet tough challenge for me as newby in coding, guess a little more tough as to do the class room course. Due to 100% remote class room I was missing a little the interaction between or after the class room sessions between us students. Anyway it was a great experience which I didn't wanna miss, especially with our very knowledgeable teachers which gave us a great support! As well the Spiced team around us gave a great support and take care that everything is running smooth, thanks!
    At the end I could only recommend this course to every data friend to get a good insight about what is possible in the world of Data Science. Even, as in my case, that you not go ahead as Data Scientist or Analyst, you can participate from the Boot Camp in every data related position.

    Spiced successfully kickstarted my career in tech. That's it. What else can I say.
    I also learned a lot about problem solving in general.
    The teachers were very approachable, the curriculum was very well prepared and thought out imo, and I had a great connection with other students.
    It can be a little overwhelming if you haven't coded before, so I'd definitely recommend preparing as much as possible. The more you prepare the easier of a time you'll have, plus you get to ask much more in depth question and understand the topics on a much deeper level if you have your basics covered already.

    I  graduated from the full stack web developer course in June 2021. Following graduation, I received one-to-one career coaching to enable me to successfully gain employment within software development.

    The course structure and delivery is well planned and industry applicable. The Spiced team are attentive, knowledgeable and always willing to support. 

    I remain in touch with a lot of the Spiced team and I would definitely recommend a bootcamp and Spiced for anyone looking to become a software developer.

    I decided to change career path and finally work in something I like. Thanks to spiced and it’s wonderful teachers, I finally work in something do something that I enjoy. I found an internship one month after graduating, and currently a trainee software developer. So if you are motivated to work intensively during 3 months, (and maybe go through some weekly mental breakdowns lol) then just go for it! Definitively worth the hard work.

    My time at Spiced Academy was a super career-reset. After making the tough decision of a career switch during the pandemic, there was also choosing the right school. I read online about bootcamps in Berlin and they always mentioned that it can be a nerve cracking experience if you are not mentally prepared and highly motivated. I had already decided about Full Stack Web Development after discussing with friends in the field and online research. 

    I believe the curriculum at Spiced was well-organized and structured. As I was a bit nervous naturally, I prefered the duration of 12 weeks instead of the more common 9 week bootcamps. In addition, an appealing website always helps to attract students, especially if they want to become a web developer. It definitely had an effect on me and made the decision easier. If eligible, one should definitely utilize the Bildungsgutschein from the Arbeitsagentür. The admission process was a good way to learn about the school and get some basic preparation. The home assignment during admission already gives you a good idea about yourself and whether you are ready for such an intensive bootcamp. 

    Once the bootcamp started, there was no time to look back. We were thoroughly engaged with learning and our home tasks everyday. It was nice to have fellow course mates from various backgrounds. We slowly got to know our friendly and very helpful teachers day by day. They each had their own style but also a common aim, to get the topics into our heads! During the pandemic, studying remotely was a new experience for both sides and Spiced handled it quite well. It was a good balance between lectures, assignments and consultation. The course also had a seemless flow starting with JavaScript, HTML, CSS for the front end; shifting to the back end with Node/Express, PostgreSQL, etc.; getting introduced to frameworks like Vue & React and finally moving onto the real projects. While working on the projects I had realized I have already made considerable progress. Each project was different and exciting to do, as we could include our own ideas and creativity. That always helped to open our minds and broaden our perspectives. 

    Finally, before we knew it, it was time to submit our final project and graduate. The intensity made the 3 months feel like it flew by. We were ready to create our portfolio, resume and online presence as job-seekers. Spiced career consultation helped a lot to achieve them, even after we had graduated. There were career talks/discussions throughout the bootcamp. In addition, the hiring department was always actively searching for prospective employers for Spiced graduates. Both career counselling and hiring department from Spiced supported to push towards the job market and give confidence while applying to jobs myself. Thankfully I was able to land my first job within a couple of months as a Frontend Developer in Berlin. Till date we are still connected to the Spiced network, old and new students. The time at Spiced will be a very memorable experience forever. I would highly recommend Spiced Academy for anybody looking to change their careers, no matter what background you come from; have an awesome/priceless brainwash and get ready for the tech industry within 3 months!

    I did the course after quitting my job as I really wanted to be a Developer for around 2 years. So my decision involved a lot of research in advance because it wouldn't be an easy way either. After multiple talks and invitations at different providers, I quickly wanted to be part of SPICED. My personal reasons for that were primarily the curriculum --> modern frameworks, a lot of JS and working on/creating multiple projects each week to really have something of your own work to show after graduating. That was quite helpful for my applications afterwards. Also, it shouldn't be too general and easy - at another provider I needed to simply change colors in css and got the course acception based on that. Idk, you think about the level of the whole course then right? If you have few experience before, you need to learn so much to even start in that job anyways. My recommendation is learning the basics before and use the bootcamp for getting deeper into understanding. If you see yourself in my review so far, SPICED is the absolute best way to do this. :) I'm not gonna lie, it was very challenging and exhausting. I thought I cannot make it so often. But it was the best way to learn quite a lot in a very short time. You get a great overview of different Frontend and Backend projects what can also be helpful for focussing just in one field afterwards. Biggest props at this point to our outstanding teacher Florian! I really think that he was the best part of the whole bootcamp. Patient, funny, very good at explaining, always helpful and positive on anything especially when you are deeply frustrated :')
    It took some time and still a lot of work after graduation, but I'm an employed Full Stack Web Developer now and would do it anytime again with SPICED.

    The Overall experience of the Boot Camp was really Nice. The instructors were Really helpful and the curriculum was very well constructed. First we learned the basics off css and javascript then we had two big projects that were made with react and vue.
    The graduation project was a Projektei of our choice with a framework of our choice.
    10 graduation project was actually the most fun, because it was the first time you really saw what you learned in practice.

    While going through the different topics there were really interesting job search workshops in between, , preparing you for the later job search.
    They also help you with the whole hiring process and get you a accustomed to 
    Tech interviews.
    What really stood out was the community behind spiced Academy. All people are really engaged to help you and I’m still grasping opportunities via slack and the different channels and events they do for graduates.

    If I had to decide again I Would totally 
    Do the camp again.
    It is a really good starting point to get deeper into web development, if you already have grasped the basics.
    I have to warn you though that It is really intense and you will probably come to the point where it seems too much, but luckily there will be teachers which will guide you, if you get stucked.

    ❤️❤️❤️

Thanks!
