Before taking Skillcrush's Break into Tech program I didn't know how to code anything. I also didn't understand the different roles that exist in the tech industry. I already finished the Front End Developer track and currently working through the WordPress... Read More
"So glad I found Skillcrush! It is exactly what I was looking for!"
I searched for a good program for somebody who is completely new to tech and is interested in transitioning into UX design. The programs out there were costly and I was afraid to commit to them during there uncertain times but also because I wasn't exactly... Read More
"Break Into Tech/Front end Developer Fast Track classes at Skillcrush"
My Front End Developer Fast Track course at Skillcrush is almost over, and by now I can say that its biggest flaw is that it's almost over! I will miss the classes and the fantastic people at Skillcrush. You get to learn a lot, and in such a funny way.... Read More
"The Perfect Intro to Coding"
I was looking for a career change and stumbled upon Skillcrush's quiz to see if tech is right for you. After taking the quiz, I went through their free bootcamp to see if coding was something I wanted to pursue. I loved it, so I decided to go for their... Read More
"The courses I wanted and encouragement I needed!"
I am celebrating my completion of the Break Into Tech - Designer Track through Skillcrush! I had been laid off by the company I served for 18 years due to the pandemic. I had just spent four years as a Product Owner designing, managing and expanding proprietary... Read More
Once I got my bearings after the covid layoff I started doing research to try and figure out what training I needed to get me a job working in IT as a product designer. I came across Skillcrush and Adda Birnir's story which I found to be similar to mine... only Adda's struggles were during the 2008 economic crisis... and she created Skillcrush because she saw the need to help people gain hard technical skills that would keep them employed in high paying jobs. I really loved that it was founded by a woman in response to her own job loss and that it appeared to be run by mostly women! I will also tell you their marketing campaign is terrific... I would get emails from Adda every few days sharing stories of her personal journey and how she became successful again after losing her job. It was a story I needed to hear and she kept telling it until I was ready to jump in with both feet.
I started the classes in June of 2020 and its October 5th and I have completed the BIT-Fast Track for Designers! I am applying for jobs and know I will find the right one soon... and I enjoyed the classes so much that I will continue taking other classes through Skillcrush until working takes over all of my time. I am grateful to Adda and the Skillcrush team for their support and constant encouragement. I will continue using and referring to the classes I took to support me in new roles as things change or I need to review skills or processes. They also have some terrific masterclasses and career training and counseling!
"A decent introductory/beginner course"
"Amazing Classes, Amazing Instructors, and Amazing Value"
I'm proud to call myself a Skillcrusher! I enrolled in the Break Into Tech blueprint years after being told about Skillcrush by an old acquaintance from high school. I shouldn't have waited 6 years to make the leap to learn again! It just took a furlough... Read More

"Skillcrush is well worth your time and money."
PSA (before I get into how much I love the skillcrush course): If you are thinking of or already doing the break into tech course do NOT get the UX add on. Most of the information is already in the course and, truthfully, it's just not worth the money... Read More
That being said I would still give this entire course a 5 star review overall. It guides you through the information at a perfect pace and presents it all in a logical and fluid way. They offer many resources to pick through at your own pace as well. Skillcrush's team is hyper responsive and good at teaching rather than just answering questions. You could easily teach all of this to yourself through free resources and experimentation, but I'd also guarantee you it would take three times as long and you wouldn't get the best practices drilled into you like this course does. If you're taking the idea of moving into the tech world seriously this is the right move.
