    Springboard is leading the pack in learning progams!

    The question I always ask myself when providing a review is - could my words make a positive impact in someone's life? I consider concept of Springboard as a leader and pioneers of mentor led UX programs. More than the educational program itself, a genuine and experienced mentor can make all the difference in the world. @Midlife I needed to make the right decision, I did not feel like taking a gamble with time or money.

    After 4 months of deep research...

    Introduction to Data Science

    The mentorship aspect of the program is extremely helpful. Being completely new to the field of data science and starting from scratch, the organization of the curriculum itself could be done differently. I felt I understood more of what I was doing in regards to my capstone project especially once I got through data visualization and machine learning.

    Data Science Career Track

    Overall, the content of the boot camp was directly useful in preparing for data science interviews. I accepted a full-time data science position in the Bay Area recently after 3 months of searching while also having a full-time job. Obviously, you must keep your expectations realistic and be honest about your skill level when transitioning to data science. I had to work on more coding problems via Leet Code and gain speed in completing data science challenges, which was beyond what the cou...

    affordable price and great experience

    I attended the springboard data science career track. I chose it b/c it's much cheaper compared to other bootcamps (almost half the price). The most rewarding part is the mentorship and make sure you are connected to a mentor whom you like. The level of expertise of mentors vary in their network and you will have to be proactive in reaching out to student adviser to find a good match. The curriculum is very organized and covers the majority of things you will need for a entry data sc...

    Springboard Online UX Design Program

    This was a great program. The course work was pretty easy to follow. There were only a few times that I got bound up and the mentor (everyone is matched with a mentor from the start) helped me work through it. The problem was so much Springboard as it was on my side because the process I'd used for over ten years was different than the one Springboard requested. But that's a selling point of the program, you are paired with a mentor that helps you through that stuff!

    Great UX course

    The course is good to understand the UX design methodology and learn about all part of UX to learn your niche, but have good visibility on the skills of other UX responsibilities.

    Grew and solidified my UX skillz!

    The curriculum was logical, the support staff was wonderful, the office hours were helpful. More than anything, the mentor-led approach was amazing - I thoroughly enjoyed connecting with a real UX pro to grow my skills and receive critique and validation. Highly recommend Springboard. It's also self-paced and I was able to pause my billing the month I got married which was a nice little perk!

    My experience of data science career track

    I joined the data science career track last summer and completed the whole program in March 2019. The experience with their career coach is really great and helpful. I learned a lot of skills about how to approach the companies and cultivate myself to be a strong candidate in the job market. The courses provided by the program are not really the best for people who have not a lot of experience with data science area. Also, some of the courses are not really up to date and the materials of ...

    UX Design - Comprehensive and great content

    I had a great experience in the Springboard UX Design course. The content was comprehensive and diverse. The weekly mentor meetings were helpful in getting real world perspective on questions. The course work was not too hard to complete given the fact that I am a full time worker and traveled often during my time at Springboard. I would absolutely recommend the UX design course to anyone looking to learn a new skill set and/or begin a new career.

    Springboard Data Science Career Track Review

    Overall a very strong course that teaches you the many different facets of Data Science. As someone who was very new to computer science, I felt the course was well balanced and not too overwhelming though difficult at points. The Capstone Projects were key in me putting all of this knowledge together and really understanding the data science process. Both my normal mentor and career mentor were very helpful throughout the course and I would recommend it for anyone looking into a change in...

    Look closely at this one

    (I wrote a review on another site about Springboard using the same title as this review - rather than just copy/paste, I'll start again from scratch here. If it seems fishy to you that they have the exact same title and similar themes, it's because they were written by the exact same dude.)

    Do a lot of research into which bootcamp is the best for you. Springboard will be at or near the top of your list. It's everything that you need, without a bunch of stuff that you don't.
