    Great Course

    I really enjoyed the curriculum of this course. All of the units were very engaging and the instructor (Colt Steele) did a great job explaining. Even when I got stuck, I had mentor oversight and was able to get any problem addressed quickly.

    Good Foundation

    I started from nothing and now I can say I have learned frontend and backend development. I was paired with a great mentor who also worked as a Senior Software Engineer. I gained a lot of insight through them and I they gave me the push I needed. This course started with the very basics of Javascript, html, and css. Then it taught the front end and backend programming. Personally, it took me longer to finish because I had difficulty staying on track, but I recommend it to students who ar...

    Springboard's Data Science boot camp

    I'd like to share my experience with Springboard's Data Science boot camp. It was truly an unforgettable journey. While most of the learning material is readily available online, like on YouTube or DataCamp, what set Springboard apart was its structured program and well-designed projects. Additionally, having a mentor who offered valuable guidance and support throughout the course made a significant difference in my learning journey
