    Great Community, Mentorship, and Curated Coursework

    Most of what I have learned about Data Science, I have learned online through free MOOC's. I enjoy this method of learning because I can really learn at my own pace, and I believe it nurtures free-thinking and problem solving in a way that more structured environments (i.e. univeristy) do not. After about a month of working through Springboard's Data Science Intensive course, I really like their unique learning environment. The coursework is curated from a pretty large variatey of websites...

    Great Mentorship, Decent Curriculum

    The curriculum is a bunch of curated resources from various web sites (Udacity, Lynda, and other web sources). They also do provide articles and suggested books. While I found the videos helpful, the suggested books hold the key information. Also just a note a lot of the resources you will want have short trials and you will end up having to pay for. I found Sketch, Flinto, and UXPin to be the most helpful for completing the projects. 

    The projects all build a good porfolio to br...

    Waste of money

    Horrible experience. So a better research and go somewhere else. You'd only waste your money here. The curriculum is out of Linkedin learning. The lab classes are outdated. The mentors are not helpful at all. Lastly, the career service has no clue what they are doing.

    mentor-assisted, helpful, guidance needed

    My mentor was the key to my success at Springboard - we would have weekly meetings where we would go over my work and design and since he was from the same field, he would provide his critique, feedback and any other helpful resources he could in order for me to achieve better work.

    Great bootcamp

    Springboard had all the important topics that many jobs are looking for. The lecture videos showed a lot of details and step by step instructions on how to go about it. The only cons were that some lectures were outdated and needed to be updated with current standards.

    Finished the course feeling prepared for the career switch

    It's scary thinking of switching careers but Springboard made it easy. The curriculum covered everything you need to know to get you started and with all the support you receive from mentors and career coaches, I truly finished feeling prepared to start applying.

    UX UI Design Career Track

    I completed the UX UI Career Track program and I loved it! The curriculum was very engaging and allowed me to learn at my own pace, which I loved. You also receive a mentor to work with you through the course and this was incredibly beneficial! I also really loved the IDP program, you get to work with a real company and other designers, it is an awesome real world experience!  I am just entering the job search so will update my thoughts throughout that as well!

    Do not recommend

    I am reviewing the Software Engineering Career Track. The only thing I would recommend about this program is the job guarantee. Curriculum teaches Python, which is a great language for devOps and data science, but this is a limiting option for software engineers. There are many more jobs for those who know C# and Java. In addition, the experience with my mentor was disappointing and there wasn't enough of a social aspect to the bootcamp. After awhile, I also found myself fatigued by the ...
