    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...

    Student

    I did Hack Reactors prep, and I also did Springboards prep! Springboard did a better job of explaining the concepts and gave me better understanding of all the programming languages (HTML, CSS, JavaScript). Hack Reactor did not review HTML nor CSS, and they also did not have a 1-on-1 mentor to help with any questions. I was lead here from a guy who attended and graduated from both schools, and he told me to go with Springboard over Hack Reactor! I think Colt Steele is really good at teac...

    Enjoyed prep course

    I enjoyed the prep course. However, I think there were some aspects of the course that can definitely be approved. I often times felt like my questions weren't answered when it came to the actual skills test being taken. I was just told to try again. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the course. Overall it was organized very well.

    Great place to learn all the skills I need!

    Springboard is a mentor lead Bootcamp that helps people make the transition into the tech world. I love that I get to talk to my mentor every week and got a chance to work with the real clients at the end of the cohort. It was a great experience and exposure! Throughout the course, I can schedule calls with mentors or career coaches at any time to get more support for my projects and job search.

    Great school with an excellent mentorship program

    I just finished the Springboard UX Career Track and have begun my Job Search as of today.

    I first heard about Springboard when I was looking at changing my career path, and my friend suggested I look into UX and the course Springboard offered (they had never gone to Springboard, only heard of it). From my research, UX ended up being a field that intrigued and excited me but finding an online course that would work for me was the hinge-point - specifically because I've had poor exp...

    Strong Career Coaching

    There is a lot of material online that teaches data science concepts such as machine learning and deep learning. Anyone capable of completing an online boot camp could probably successfully learn on their own. Springboard gives benefits beyond the actual curriculum. There are no concerns about the curriculum - they curate online sources so that you don't have to worry about assessing quality. While there were occasionally problems with dead links, these always seemed to be fixed relative...

    Data Analytics Career Track

    Springboard's data analytics bootcamp came along at a perfect time for me. I had just finished my MBA but then the pandemic hit and I found that I was missing the data skillsets that are de rigeur in the Bay Area. I highly recommend this bootcamp for upskilling and broadening and deepening your data and business understanding. Also know that a bootcamp isn't a one-and-done. A bootcamp serves to build your foundation of skills on which you continue to build your practice. Outside of a tra...

    Data Science Career Track Review

    Prior joining Springboard, I had some technical background and experience with Data Science but struggled to actually get a job. After going through the process judiciously and with great dedication, I can confidently say  Springboard has helped me build a robust and very competitive portfolio. 

    The curriculum typically covers everything needed to succeed. My favorite part of Springboard is the one-on-one mentorship where you could brainstorm, learn and typically create a connecti...

    UI/UX Designer

    Overall, I have enjoyed my time at Springboard. It was a different experience for me to attend online courses, rather than in person, but a good and necessary one especially for these times of the pandemic. I like the self-paced learning that it has because there are times that life get's busy. This really helped me to just dial in what I was learning. If I wanted to spend more time in one subunit, I could and if I wanted to breeze through it, I could as well. The only con to this is tha...
