    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...

    Cybersecurity

    The cybersecurity program at Springboard is great on so many levels. As a recent high school graduate who was looking to enter the cybersecurity workforce without taking four years to do so, this bootcamp enabled me to do just that.  I was uncertain how much practical knowledge I would have after spending only 6 months in the course, but I applied myself to learning and experienced great support from my mentor in the program, which enabled me to pass the CompTIA Security+ exam on my firs...

    Software Engineering

    I wanted to make the switch to software engineering while also taking time off to travel. Springboard was the bootcamp that fit my needs, it gave me the flexibility to learn while on the road, is a great value, and really prepared me for the next step in my career. The curriculum is very comprehensive, but also well paced. The student community, mentor support, and student advisors make it a really great experience. Instead of feeling like you're just watching "how to code videos", you g...

    UX/UI Design Track

    Unlike any educational institution I’ve ever attended, springboard allowed me to finish my course on a timeline that made sense for me. I unfortunately had to take all of my extended breaks due to a variety of different personal issues. Everything from Covid, to wild fire evacuations and a death in the family. There were also good things as well – a new job after losing my previous one to Covid, but this did cut into my ability to study and focus on my school  work after working on a com...

    Full Scope UI/UX Design Course

    The UI/UX program at Springboard is a complete offering, giving you the opportunity to learn every detail surrounding UX design and making you apply that knowledge to a variety of projects. From the simple design spruce ups to full-scale capstones, you perform every level of the design process in order to understand every aspect back to front. While there are some lessons that do go on a little long (i.e. lots of articles that simply repeat the same information) or slightly outdated arti...

    Data Science Career Track

    It was a correct decision to learn at the Data Science Career Track program at Springboard, as I finally started getting responses from employers.
    On one of the applications I was one step away from employment.
    This course helps boost your chances and compete with those who has formal specialized education, such as in computer science or data science.
    While a lack of formal experience through employment is still a problem, it is somewhat alleviated by the hands-on curriculum pro...

    Software Engineering Career Track

    Springboard's Software Engineering Career Track is built for people that want to switch their career path and become a software engineer. This 9-month course helps you develop skills (Python, JaveScript, etc.) necessary for looking for a job in the market. Definitely recommend it even though you are starting from scratch.

    Worth every minute of learning!

    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. Th...

    Fine print in job guarantee

    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 ...
