    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...

    Great learning experience with Springboard!

    As I'm writing this review I have completed about 12% of the Springboard Software Engineering Career Track material and (just a couple days ago) accepted a job offer as an Application Developer for a local financial services company.

    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 ...

    Great course

    This course was pretty challenging, but definitely a rewarding experience if you’re up for putting in the work. The mentor meeting were helpful and the career coaches were excellent. I would definitely recommend Springboard if you’re looking for a flexible way to switch career paths.

    Worth the time and money

    My name is Nathan Walk and I am a physician, specifically a Pathologist. I used Springboard and feel the experience was extremely worthwhile. Their educational framework – the foundation that they start with and how the instruction is pieced together into a whole – is very well done. While I did not complete the program (yet we get lifetime access to course materials) and it played only a partial role in my eventual job, it certainly helped. I recommend the program without reservation (e...

    great bootcamp to be a data scientist

    My journey started a year back when I first joined springboard. Because of my background (I have MBA, PhD and 4+ years of research experience) advisor suggested me to enroll in data scientist program even though I applied for data analyst track.  So, you will find a great support team here who will always have best interest of yours in mind right from the start. The program is not cheap but you get the full team working for you. Help is just an email away. So, after I got admitted to the...

    Comprehensive Program for SWEs

    Springboard’s program is a comprehensive program for software engineers. The bulk of the course is video based instruction taught by Colt Steele. Colt’s instructions are easily digestible, although he does fail to provide adequate mistakes in his instruction to provide practice on how to find and fix bugs. The TA team does a great job of filling this gap. There is a weekly meeting with a mentor, but 30 minutes sometimes is not adequate to explain, debug, conceptualize and plan for the ne...
