    The curriculum is excellently designed and does not require any programming or computer science experience for anyone to participate. I am a biologist and absolutely did not had any experience in data science. I took the Data Science prep course first, which taught me python programming in just 4 weeks. Then I enrolled on the Data Science Career Track. The course is expected to be completed in 6-9 months, so one has to be ready to invest at least 4 hours of time every day in learning. The best thing about the course is it teaches the entire curriculum using public resources, which include DataCamp, LinkedIn, Youtube, Harvard lessons and other useful public forums. This is great because you know after the course completion where to continue your learning and find resources related to a specific subject. Every unit has a number of mini-projects to practice that increase your confidence in your learning. 1 to 1 mentor calls every week is a great benefit, as you will be interacting with an industry expert to review your projects and they will help you to streamline your learning and choose a better career path. At the end of the course, you will be proficient in python programming, mastered in essential statistical concepts and you can independently work on data science projects. I strongly recommend anyone who is looking for a career in data science to opt this course, as every minute and penny is worth plus job guaranteed.

    I successfully completed springboard curriculum. It was lackluster and average as it was mostly based on other resources. Mentorship was the only worthy part of the program. Job search began where I always went above and beyond on the number of networking and jobs conditions. I also kept my own records for these applications and networks as well as log them in their own website. After 6 months, I opted for the job guarantee extension. I kept up my job guarantee. Then, couple of these to my knowledge I logged my requirements in; however, due to technical difficulties, it didn't show on their server. Let's keep in mind, I have records (emails for job applications and linked in for networks) of when I did those activities. Despite actually fulfilling these requirements, springboard basically said "oh you had technical difficulties/system glitch, that's too bad, our system if flawless, there are no issues, even though you have proof you applied to such and such job, we are going to ignore that and take this opportunity to make sure you don't qualify for job guarantee". Their job guarantee was only 6 months, I was able to keep that up for over a year. If you value your time and money, don't let the job guarantee be the factor why you choose this institution because they'll take any opportunity that arises to say that you messed up.

    I have a BS in Mechanical Engineering and 2 years of experience working as an engineer. I pursued this course full time, working approximately 30-50 hours a week towards it. I was able to complete the course with Advanced ML Specialization in 5 months. I now have a job as a Machine Learning Engineer, with a base salary that is 23% higher than my previous salary.

    I believe that this course is great for people who have a STEM degree and who have some technical work experience or technical project experience. If you do not have these things, I think it would be wiser to either pursue a technical degree or one of Springboard's other courses, such as their DA or DE courses. 

    I rate the coursework three out of five stars. The structure of the coursework was immensely helpful in guiding my journey to learn the steps in the DS/ML workflow, and it kept me organized and disciplined in my studies. The early course material does a good job of explaining the basics of Python, SQL, and the DS workflow. However, the depth of the course material starts to lose its quality in the sections covering statistics, ML algorithms, and the specialization material. There are mini-projects related to the major algorithms (regression, classification, and clustering) and statistical concepts (CLT, AB tests, etc.), however, these sections sometimes skip over critical details that are commonly discussed in technical interviews (such as assumptions of linear regression). Additionally, the ML specialization did not provide projects related to the topics of deployment. Overall I would have liked to see more depth and detail in the later content. 

    I will add that most of the content is either coursework on DataCamp or proprietary Jupyter Notebooks created by Springboard. Many of my peers agreed that the DataCamp coursework does not retain well since they are simple fill-in-the-blank exercises. The notebooks are more useful since they show practical examples of how an algorithm or concept would be applied, but overall the content has a perceived low value since the DataCamp membership can be had for a low price.

    The mentorship was also hit-or-miss. I was lucky to have a mentor with a background in statistics, so he was able to explain some of the advanced concepts that I really needed help with understanding. Some of my peers had mentors with backgrounds in MLE or analytics, and they were not of much use to my peers. Therefore I would say that the value of the mentor is dependent on luck.

    I believe that the true value of the course comes in career support, portfolio projects, and the alumni network. Springboard actually does a great job of aggregating good articles for how to pursue a career in DS, how to tailor your resume, and how to network. The career coaches are very experienced in recruiting and HR practices, so they give great advice when it comes to resume design and how to approach interviews. The course also includes mock interviews for behavioral, coding, project presentation, and general DS interviews, which are invaluable in preparing for real interviews.

    The portfolio projects are vital when it comes to catching the eyes of hiring managers, so I would recommend tailoring those to the companies you want to work for. Most of all, I found value in the alumni network. I was able to secure a couple of interviews easily because I reached out to Springboard alumni at companies that were hiring.

    I would recommend Springboard to anyone who is looking to change careers, but I would only recommend this DS course for individuals who have a technical background since companies typically look for some form of technical background for this type of role. As mentioned previously, I would recommend individuals with little to no background to pursue another path with a lower barrier to entry, such as Data Analytics or Data Engineering.

    Before choosing Springboard I researched probably over 40 bootcamps. I ended up choosing them because they offered a job guarantee, taught a well rounded, modern full stack developer course, and because they did not offer income share agreements but instead a flat tuition fee. I went at a slightly slower pace than recommended and ended up using some free extension but completed the course nonetheless and received 2 job offers 6 weeks after finishing. The program was adjusted while I was in it to evolve to the most modern standards of technology. I was matched with a mentor that spent extra time with me every week to ensure I was understanding the concepts and staying on track to be successful. The support team was extremely prompt at replying and fixed any issue that arose very quickly. I'd highly recommend this course to anyone trying to make the switch into tech!

    Springboard’s UI/UX Design curriculum was jam-packed with helpful articles, videos, and exercises to teach me the ins and outs of UI design at my own pace. I was able balance my full-time job in finance with learning what I need to in order to make my transition to the field of UI/UX design. Even more helpful and exciting were the four major projects that I completed over the course of 9 months which put my design skills to work after honing them through tutorials and mini-projects. I was able to go through the full-circle process of creating mock mobile apps and work with a client with a team of fellow Springboard students. This was the perfect way to prepare me for “the real world” as a designer. I came out with 4 great pieces to start building my design portfolio. 

    The most beneficial part of the program was having weekly calls with my mentor (an experienced designer) who I developed a great relationship with. I looked forward to them every week, getting great feedback about my projects plus advice and insight about the industry. Career coach calls throughout the program definitely help you prepare for the job search, even if you have a good resume and LinkedIn from the start like I did. 

    Springboard really solidified that a UI designer is 100% the career that I want to transition to. The job search is always daunting, but I feel confident that I’ll land a job in the near future and finally transition from finance to UI design, getting back into a creative field where I truly enjoy what I do day-to-day. Thank you Springboard!!

    SpringBoard is the best schooling experience I have ever had. I learned more in the last 6-8 months than I did over 4 years of university. The curriculum is extensive and thorough, the mentors are extremely helpful (I cannot recommend Ben or DJ highly enough),  and they provide so many opportunities for additional learning. In addition, it was refreshing to be a part of a learning environment that was so accommodating and tailored to suit every students' learning styles. Rather than having students memorizing a bunch of facts then regurgitating it all on a test like traditional schools, SpringBoard takes a hands-on project-based learning approach where a student's success is measured by the quality of their work rather than grades. This program doesn't just help you develop the technical tools , but it also prepares you for all things career-related. Overall, this is the most comprehensive educational platform I have ever found and is guaranteed to put you on track for a successful career.

    Absolutely wonderful experience! Best mentors in the industry and unlimited technical mentor call help when needed (Python, SQL, Tableau, Excel). I have grown to actually become very good at working with data. This was hands down the best learning experience of my life!

    I am really satisfied with my Springboard experience. Access to on demand mentors every day if need be, while still working 1-on-1 with a Data Science professional once a week for assistance on capstone projects that help build up your resume. A lot of content, a lot of resources, career assistance, and a very welcoming community online willing to help each other out.  While it may not be the cheapest bootcamp, I feel that I have been set up for success in the future. I would recommend this course to anyone who is trying to break into the Data Science industry, or anyone who wants to increase their knowledge and build up their portfolio.

Thanks!
