    Great Way to Get Started in Cybersecurity

    Great bootcamp! I learned a lot and have confidence for being able to find work in this new field. Springboard helps with technical knowledge, how to apply technical knowledge in real world and how to properly interview. This is a great path for someone looking to break into the industry!!!!

    I've achieved huge informative insights in Springboard

    It was a fantastic opportunity to enhance the tech and interpersonal skills that I was looking for which aligned well with my career and made me a great fit for the data analyst position. The content of each unit was well prepared and trailed perfectly to each subject.

    Smooth ride into the design world

    Pros: On demand mentor support via call and messages. An experienced UX & UI mentor with valuable advice weekly. Helpful and supportive advising and support staff. A flexible schedule, different payment options, tons of resources, connections, and tools. 
    Cons: you’re on your own when it comes to time management,  none actually enjoyed my time haha

    Comprehensive and digestible!

    I came into this course with no prior coding experience. Colt does a great job going through the foundations of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript which helped me feel prepared for the Career Track program. The final practice tests really set me up well for the final Technical Skills Survey. So glad I took this course!

    You get what you put into it

    Springboard has been extremely helpful in providing the tools you need to succeed. They only provide the tools, it’s up to you what you do with them. If you work hard and are very determined to do your best you’ll come out ahead with a great job ready portfolio. I have already landed my first job and haven’t even completed the course yet. Also, create your portfolio early on an apply before you graduate to get a head start. It helped me land my job early and couldn’t be happier.

    Helped me to make a career change

    I joined the Springboard Data Analytics career track to make a career change from professor to data analyst. I had a lot of experience with research and quantitative methods, but needed to learn the tech (SQL, Python, Power BI/Tableau). I also really wanted the career support to help me pivot my CV to a top-notch resume. The capstones and case studies are really helpful to create portfolios. There are great support staff - personal mentor, career coaches, and an active Slack channel wher...

    Springboard Rocks

    I had a terrific experience with Springboard. Main features for me: Job guarantee, great mentorship program, up to date curriculum. If you're able to work completely self paced and have the time each week to put forth some effort, this program might be for you.

    UX/UI Design Career Track Certification

    Springboard UI/UX Design Career Track Certification is everything the website says it was going to be. No lies no frills, builds up your core UI and UX design skills and apply them to 3 or 4 projects that you can put on your portfolio (which the curriculum also helps up build!). 

    Springboard does a great job preparing you for post-completion - the dreaded job search. Springboard has career modules embedded in the curriculum that focuses solely on representing yourself as the best ...

    Excellent Curriculum, Good Job Support

    The best part of the Springboard Software Engineering Career Track is the quality of the curriculum materials. They don't just teach you the bare minimum to be able to build things - the course gives context, history, and deep technical understanding of why modern web applications are built the way they are.

    The job support is also very good, though I would've appreciated a little more hands-on guidance. I got a job before finishing the program, so perhaps I would've had more help...

    Here are the pros and cons of my experience with Springboard: Pros Colt Steele presents all the instruction materials (via recorded video). He does a great job and was super easy to follow along with. It was pretty rare that I wo...

    Software Engineering Career Track

    I have been coding out of curiosity but never got my hands on projects or a systematic completion of any technology. Springboard's concise curriculum helped me doing all that and that, too, in a minimum period of time. 

    The best thing I feel about Springboard is the focus on Creating the projects. My Git hub is filled with 89 repositories thanks to Springboard. The flow and the structure of learning core technologies and frameworks and libraries helped me understand not only high ...
