    UX Designer

    Ever since I enrolled in Springboard's UX/UI Career Track, I started to recommend this course to everyone around me who is interested in tech or design. The curriculums are well put together, the 4 projects really makes up a great portfolio and the 1 on 1 mentorship was super helpful. It took me 10 months to complete the course and I spent way over 20 hours per week, but it was worth it. I ended up landing a job just 2 weeks after graduating.

    A life changing experience!

    Really enjoyed my time at Springboard's UX Career Track program which helped me start my job as a UX/UI designer after having worked professionally in marketing/visual design for nearly 10+ years.

    Pros:

    —The career services module was easily worth the price of admittance. It helped keep me sane during my 9+ month job hunt and helped me stay on track during this arduous process.
    — My mentor was fantastic and I am still in touch with her today and am benefitti...

    Overall good experience with some caveat

    I had a good time with Spring Board's ML course.  The certificate is under the UC San Diego Extension name, which is great.  The course itself is overall good, however I do want to point out a few things: 

    1. It's only as useful as the amount of time you put into it 
    2. Take notes constantly or you won't learn anything 
    3. Use mentor to keep you on track 

    Their material are all freely available online like YouTube videos, while this sound bad it di...

    Software Engineering Career Track

     I had a great experience in the Software Engineering Track. I feel like the curriculum prepared me to be comfortable in any part of the stack and covered a great deal of content throughout my time with Springboard
    Pros:
    Thorough Curriculum on all things related to software engineering and web development
    Taught by Colt Steele 
    Access to knowledgeable mentors and career coaches 
    Cons:
    TAs and support can be difficult to access when you need them due to volume of stude...

    It's the real deal and it's worth it

    Having just completed Springboard's UX Design Career Track, I am walking away with a whole new set of UX skills and thanks to the rigorous curriculum  I feel very confident in my ability to execute them in a professional setting. I come from a multi-disciplinary design background, and I've had an interest in transitioning into the UX/UI field for a few years, so I was slowly self-learning and taking Coursera courses prior to starting the Springboard course. Unfortunately, Coursera course...

    Great Learning Experience

    The fully online, largely self-paced program made it possible for me to learn while coping with a demanding work schedule. Overall, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the curated program and the 1:1 mentorship. The mentorship is where I’ve got the most out of this program. It really does give you an in-depth insight into how data scientists works, and their industry best practices.  This program would be a great choice for those who: - wants to have direct interacti...

    I literally learned a whole new skill in less than a year through Springboard.

    From the Software Engineering Career Track Prep course to the full-on Software Engineering Career Track, I was met with genuinely kind and overall cool people. As a DJ looking to switch careers, the Prep course was very helpful in providing me a very basic understanding of web development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript). In addition to a very user-friendly course, Springboard gave me a mentor (Adam G.) to help me if I ever got stuck on anything. We met weekly until I finished the course and pass...

    Data Science Career Track

    Pros: Lots of opportunities to learn about unfamiliar material. Lots of homework so I could practice what I learned. It was helpful to build a project-based portfolio to show what I learned and could do. I'm planning on going back and improving my portfolio as much as possible.

    Cons: After I completed an assignment, it would have been useful to view another's (A+) completed assignment so I could compare and learn from my mistakes.

    Data Science Career Track

    Springboard is great.  It helped launched my Data Science career just 4-5 months into the program.  But this was with 30-60 hours a week of studying and 10-20 hours a week fixing/updating my resume and CL as well as job searching and preparing for interviews.  

    Mentors were always there when needed and are really smart.  The career coaches helped tremendously and was vital to me getting me first job even with little experience.

    UX/UI Career Track

     There were so many things about Springboard that I loved! Some perks right at the beginning: self paced, different payment options, the mentor calls, extra calls, career coaches and an externship with a real company etc.  The way the curriculum was structured was incredible, starting with the basics, but also in the approach, each topic was covered in different ways to help soak up the information as well as being able to then retain the knowledge if you have different learning styles. ...

    I am so glad that I chose Springboard for my bootcamp program. Like many folks, I'm making a career change, and I didn't know how quickly or slowly I'd get through this new information and skill-building, so I love that you can work at your own pace. The curriculum is well laid-out and thoughtfully brings you through the building blocks you need to complete two capstone projects, a modified Google Ventures Design Sprint and an Industry Placement Project.

    Data Analytics Career Track

    It's a good introduction to the topic. It really depends on how much time you have to invest in the course and how do you get the most of your encounters with mentors and coaches.
    If you are not based in the US or Canada it gets demotivating to follow the track for the professional development part.
