    Great mentor and advisor experience

    Prior to enrollment, I favored Springboard because they seemed to offer the best bang for the buck -- their syllabus covered as much or more than other bootcamps and also promised to help with career strategies (interviewing, prepping, algorithms, etc). Having just completed their 9 month Software Engineering track, I am glad I went with them.

    Be forewarned, this track covers a lot of material! As with anything tech related, you'll likely find the material covered for free elsewhe...

    Great course; a lot of work

    I really liked the program, especially working with the mentors. The mentors, career coaches, and other support staff were all very knowledgeable. It's important to acknowledge that this program does take a lot of time, and requires you to be highly self-motivated. They give you everything you need to succeed, but you will only get out as much as you put in. I researched several different programs before deciding on Springboard and I'm glad I did; ultimately, the mentor experience was in...

    Great lectures and career switch

    Engaging lectures, good advice, convenient and well rounded course layout, but ultimately I need to do the studying and applying to jobs. But it was the only bootcamp at the time to offer a job guarantee to non US students. I would highly recommend!

    Data Science Career Student

    PROS: Totally online, great curriculum, expert mentorship, really helpful career coaching, and helpful events.
    CONS: Totally online, so the human element of learning and socializing while gaining skills isn’t there so much. It happens through Skype / Zoom / Slack, but if you want to have informal random chats with peers or mentors as you pass by them and everyone’s definitely at the same part of the curriculum, that won’t happen here.

    Great career support, no regrets!

    While the technical data science curriculum with Springboard is outstanding by combining Datacamp with dozens of hand-selected resources online, there are endless resources online for learning the technical aspects of data science and machine learning. If you just want to learn the technical side of data science, just get a Datacamp membership.

    However, if you want to take your professional career to the next level, join Springboard. Weekly mentor calls hold you accountable with t...

    UX/UI Design Career Track Bootcamp

    I had a great experience in UX/UI Design bootcamp at Springboard! I highly recommend this bootcamp for anyone looking to shift careers. I signed up for the Design Career track, as this includes career calls after the course to help you find a full time position. When I was deciding on a UX/UI bootcamp, I was hesitant to sign up for a longer/more expensive bootcamp, but am very glad I went with Springboard. Here are some of the key reasons why:

    UX Design Career Track

    The Springboard program does a great job to creating a "springboard" into the UX Design Field. You are taught the fundamentals of the industry and provided coaching along the way. The industry design project is the most valuable aspect to the course, as you have a chance at really industry work and experience. Overall wonderful program, people, and content.

    GREAT CHOICE!!!

    It's hard to find a Bootcamp that cares. I won't mention the other one I almost took, but let's just say that the mentor I would have been working with for the duration of my time, IMMEDIATELY gave off vibes of wanting to get off the initial call once 30 minutes had gone by and it rhymed with Splinterfaction Resign Crownbation. Again, don't want to mention names. 

    Then I came across Springboard, as skeptical as ever and was given a list of mentors to choose from and have an initia...

    Data Analytics

    Honestly, I don't see any cons with Springboard. Staff is great and mentors are fantastic. When they say that the mentors are experts in the field, they mean it. The pros that I felt are note worthy are flexibility, mentors are VERY knowledgably and helpful, Springboard site is very easy to navigate, and Springboard does a great job at keeping track of your progress. Many bootcamps have great offers but not the flexibility. I was not ready to drop my job to go back to school. Springboard...

    Excellent Course Overall

    I am a recent Springboard grad with 2 years of experience studying Computer Science in college prior. I decided that I'd prefer to learn in a safer and more secure format with Springboard's job guarantee than potentially not get hired post college and be drowning in student loans -- even though tech is definitely a field in which most will do absurdly well financially. When everything is already online, you really don't miss out on much in comparison to university. College really only ha...
