Skillcrush was amazaing at not only teaching me the syntax and structure of programming but also the concepts that most don't think about when starting in the tech industry, like web hosting, using photoshop to help build your website, etc. I think the biggest take away for me was the groups of people I got to interact with on a daily basis. I always thought posting and replying on forms was such a taunting task that I convinced myself to reaserch for hours until I found my answer but thanks to the Instructors making it seem so painless and easy to ask questions, I was able to finally overcome that fear and now I actually enjoy commenting, and posting on forms. I would defitnely recommend this to anyone who's wanting to step into the tech industry.
These courses are broken down into baby steps with fun lesson challenges. It allows people who have no experience coding to get started and not become overwhelemed. There are lots of books and youtube videoes, blogs, etc... out there that you can try to learn how to code from but Skillcrush makes learning code so much more attainable with its easy to understand course work. Also, lots of support from other students and instructors when needed! I've tried to teach myself html & CSS from other resources in the past and ended up feeling defeated and confused. I am very happy to have found Skillcrush!
I did learn some information. It didn't cost me much. I would only recommend with the strong caution that their marketing and sales is more important to them than teaching. They'll email you constantly about ways they can help you by signing up for ANOTHER bluepr...
- Easy to follow
- Fast paced
- Lots of freebies
- Awesome teachers
- Real time communication, many channels
- Serious skills! I coded my website in three weeks!
- Sometimes the classes are too big and it's not as individual
- Side costs (host, domain, ps) should be at least hinted up front from the beginning, not in the middle of a lesson... That made me stagger a little.
I love it and would recommend it to as many friends as possible! It's an empowering, positive, can-do approach. Great for career transitions! And networking!
Pro: Easy to understand lessons, varied paths for support, intelligent mix of plain language and technical jargon to lead you to the correct result, compassionate instructors that demonstrate they understand where you're coming from.
Con: I haven't come across one any yet. Will repost if I do.
I had been considering learning to code for awhile, but didn't know the best way to start. The blueprints at Skillcrush teach clearly while working towards specific goals. The classes are even kind of fun. Would definitely recommend getting started with Skillcrush!
I cannot say how much I love Skillcrush. When I decided to start learning tech, I started feeling discouraged after spending a while looking at other online classes that charge upwards of $1000. Then I found Skillcrush. Blueprints are 3 months long, in 3 separate sessions (and 1 week break in between each). You can pay the whole $399 up front, or do three monthly payments of $149, which is what I've done and has worked really well for me. You really can't beat that price ESPECIALLY with all of the skills you're learning, resources you're getting, advice you receive, and support you get from your peers and the Skillcrush team and teachers!
I initially signed up for the Visual Design blueprint. I loved it so much that when I decided I wanted to get into coding, I signed up for ANOTHER ...
I am just about done with week three of my first blueprint, Front-End Development, and I have to say that I couldn't be more impressed. Before finding Skillcrush, I attempted to learn HTML and CSS from a free tutorial site. I did learn the nuts and bolts of *how* to write the code, but I never really understood the *why*.
Then, I found Skillcrush.
The videos in each lesson are short and sweet, but they are packed full of information in easily digested bits. Adda keeps her instruction conversational, and she uses allusions that are easily understandable. I like having the videos because I take a lot of notes, so it's very nice to be able to pause the video and replay as necessary. And if I missed something, there's always the written explanations that follow (and there's a transcri...Read more
I am currently taking the Visual Designer course and loving it!
The material is organized in a diverse fashion with videos, printed materials, and projects.
The instructors are responsive and encouraging and available.
The only difficulty I have is fitting the video calls into my schedule.
I plan to take the Wordpress class and the Front End Developer class when I finish my current blueprint.
Can't recommend them enough!!!!!!!!!
I've been following Skillcrush for a while before I decided to take the plunge and invest in a blueprint. They offer amazing content and advice that's worth checking out even if you don't take a blueprint. They are fun and quirky and absolutely embody everything about empowering women and creating a community that they promote. I'm starting on my third week of a three month course and I already can't get enough. I can't wait to learn more, finish, and perhaps take another blueprint. They have obviously spent a good deal of time figuring out what information to teach, what order to teach it in, and how to go about teaching it, and this really shows. I am so happy with Skillcrush, I've been recommending it to all of my friends. More than one seem seriously interested in investing in a blu...Read more
I am a classroom person, I like to be in the first row of the classroom and ask as much as I can. That's usually something I can not do on an online class, and the reason why I have failed a couple of times before trying to take an online course/class.
That is not happening with Skillcrush, their lessons are so well made, that I'm loving this experience. The videos, materials and challenges keeps me motivated and excited to log-in every night and continue with the classes. We use Google groups to clarify questions, share challenges and to get feedback, making the learning experience complete. I have no IT background, before I discovered Skillcrush I didn't even knew that the internet was different to web or the existence of HTML and CSS. I did the 10 Day bootcamp and I loved it. I lear...
When I started Skillcrush, I was a little nervous but dive in with success. The teachers are friendly, you get awesome emails everyday and you can get help from the google group community. I give the school a 110 percent. Its amazing how they structural the course to make it easy for you to follow. Anyone can learn it. And you cab learn at your own pace. :)
I am just 24 years old with a BA in Fine Arts, who loves teaching/education and arts. I always wanted to learn how to make my own website from scratch. So I tried to learn to code through free websites but it didn't help me enough because those didn't have a curriculum that tells me what I need to learn in order to launch a website. Don't get me wrong, I learned a little html and css through those free lessons but I had questions that needed answers. And google-ing those ?s was going to take forever!!! Bottom line, I am that person who needs a curriculum to learn, practice, and do projects to get better, and get my questions answered.
One day I read about Skillcrush through a DailyWorth's article (I think?). I explored their website, signed up to multiple of their webinars, read a ...Read more
I am so thankful I found skillcrush through an article I read only from the muse. I had been trying to figure out what I wanted to do for a career change and knew tech jobs with their flexibility and ability to combine organization and creativity was what I was looking for. What I loved about skillcrush is how they broke the programs into more manageable pieces, 3 months to learn and cover an area, since I do work full time and wasn't able to attend a class in person
I'm definitely a visual learner and the videos and plethora of resources and webinars has opened my mind up to all of the possibilities. I look forward to learning how to code and when I get stuck I know and feel comfortable writing in the Google group to get feedback on my code or try to figure out what I may have mess...Read more
I am so grateful for finding Skillcrush! They made it easy to enroll and the community is so friendly. Though coding may seem intimidating at first, the curriculum, or blueprints, breaks it down into smaller lessons so you can figure out what how to write it and what to do wit it in certain instances. I'm also learning things about Front End Development that I never knew before when I was coding in the past.
But wait, there's more...
Once you are done, they don't boot you out and say buh-bye, they help you create a path to a career. They help you build a web portfolio. We are exposed to job listings, both freelance and full-time, that we otherwise would not be.
As for cons...let's see...there's Comic-Con...CONye West...Con-Neticut...and the fact that if you have ...Read more
I'm so happy to have discovered Skillcrush. The atmosphere is positive and encouraging, and the content is fun and engaging. These are the most satisfying online courses I've ever taken.
Supportive community of instructors and fellow students
Comprehensive, well-paced curriculum and excellent downloads
Challenging but manageable projects
Career development info and resources (check out the blog)
Online feedback sessions with professionals
Caring, timely responses from staff to any questions
Positive and enthusiastic atmosphere
Easily fits into any schedule
Pros: The course is very flexible with my schedule, since I work 40 hours per week. I like that you are given projects to work on, with each class, sometimes more, as this helps to retain, what I've learned. The SkillCrush Group is awesome! I've learned so much just by interacting with my class mates and asking Questions. William who is our teacher helps us and encourages us every step of the way.
I can't believe I am actually learning to code! This is the best course for the money, and puts you on a fast learning track. You can always go back and review your projects, correct them as needed. Lots of people to help you and plenty of resources.
Cons: I can't think of any. I
I'm thoroughly enjoying the front end development blueprint. I never in a million years would have thought that I could be a "techy" but here I am, comping at the bit too learn more and more!
As an absolute beginner, what I really love about this course is that it's completely dumbed-down without ever making you feel like an amateur. I just feel like I'm building the foundation to a fabulous new career.
The elements are useful and clearly presented and you get to work at your own pace, which is great because I like to zoom ahead.
I'm a bit of an introvert, so the social aspect of learning will be the most challenging for me.
I took the Web Design course last year and am now about to begin the Web Developer Course. Just a couple of months into the first course, I was able to obtain an entry level, remote, position at a tech company (a *total* career change) because I could demonstrate and interest in html and css. And this is the first time I've ever really had job satisfaction.
My favorite things about Skillcrush are
- the multimedia lessons - They do a great job of making things entertaining. They're modern in the way they convey information, including being playful and funny at times. This takes the edge off the learning process and makes you feel like you're dealing with real people (which you are!)
- the supportiveness and responsiveness - They have so many students but will personally email you b...
As a teacher myself, I have an appreciation for well-thought-out pedagogy and lesson planning, and Skillcrush has that. The pacing and sequencing of the information is just right - everything makes sense, there's enough time to absorb, and you can repeat lessons. There is some self-study needed - I have to look things up online fairly regularly - but it wouldn't be learning to code without that aspect. The teaching assistants are amazingly responsive and helpful, the interface is intuitive and pleasing to look at, and the customer service (I had some issues with my method of payment at first) is really top-notch. I'm planning to take literally all of their courses as soon as my Front-End Developer course is over. They are that good.
I had been trying to get a small business going with a website, etc. for about a year. In the process of learning a little bit about Wordpress, I suddenly had people asking me for help all the time with building a website for them! I knew I needed more skills to help them, so when I saw Skillcrush, I immediately jumped in with both feet! I am currently taking the Wordpress Developer Blueprint and I am amazed at how much I have learned, and how quickly. Every time I stumble, there is a team of wonderful people always ready with advice or a kind word of encouragement. I would recommend Skillcrush for anyone who is looking to add tech skills to their resume. It's a lot of fun and the live hangouts are so helpful!! I am already trying to decide which Blueprint I want to enroll in next! Tha...Read more
I have done a ton of free code programs but Skillcrush has really helped me become more confident in my skill. It was affordable for me when compared to other online coding programs. I really like their philosophy of earning money while you code. I also enjoy the free resources and the emails that they use to engage me. I will say that some of the resources seem to be daunting. I'm not sure of how the classes really help me once I'm done with my current course, but it has been fun learning everything .
I'm still learning in the Web Designing course. I love that I can do the course at my pace. The videos are very informative and funny. I'm learning soo much, my boss has invested me. I enjoy learning and creating the possibilities I can have with the knowledge I've gained. The tools they provide are great. I would definitely continue my education with Skillcrush!!
I will say to anyone who is not familiar with the world of code and will like to become so, your best bet is Skillcrush. I was very nervous and skeptical taking this course because I have never done any type of programming before. I am looking to make a career change and coding drew my attention because of the endless possibilities that suits a life style that I want. I am on my third week and I am loving every minute of it. Adda breaks down the course work in a very easy and understanding way through her videos, and if you're not a watching video type of person there is always the video transcript you can read. Course materials, cheatsheets and tests are given at the end of each session to make learning easier. I looked into other coding schools but in my opinion Skillcrush di...Read more
When I first started thinking about switching over to a more tech-heavy subject, I went to go talk to the only software engineer I knew. One of the first things she did, was recommend Skillcrush. It's a great opportunity for newbies to get started in tech and I loved every second of it. The whole setup is splendid. You get motivational snippets of adivce and information on every turn and although I was not very confident in actually trying out coding, I am now switching my study course from a major in humanities to one in science.
Skillcrush made me realize that there should be more women in tech and that coding is not as hard as it seems to be. For many young people, especially women, it has a tendency to seem completely out of reach but the Skillcrush courses break it down into smal...
As a healthcare professional of 17 yrs, I'm striving to make a transition into tech.
I'd like layer tech on my years of clinical skills and immerse myself in all things front-end and ux.
Skillcrush, is user friendly, and the education is really laid out nicely. Also, I've gained so much value and continue to gain value from all the resources via email and class. One in particular email included a pdf on resume building. I used that resource which landed me a job in 48 hrs!
The only cronstructive feedback I would offer is to strive to keep the cohorts together in Google groups so the conversations are congruent to where you are in the class. Outside of that, I'm really pumped about taking all the blueprints.
Lastly, asa male who has worked with nurses (mostly women) for so long, I've...
As a newbie to coding, I was nervous and skeptical that I could learn HTML and CSS. I am currently into my second week of the Front End Developer Blueprint and LOVE it!! I am older, so I think it takes me longer to grasp new information...And there is A LOT!!! They definitely don't skimp on the content! I like that there are videos, written lectures, and practice. While there are a lot of other participants that have coding experience, the Skillcrush folks are great at making me (with my lack of coding experience) feel like I can do this! I look forward to each lesson. I highly recommend Skillcrush to anyone who is looking to learn the skills to break into coding as a career, and to others that need further information to excel at their job!
I was an IT professional for over 25 years stuck in a dinosaur technology looking to broaden my skill set to the 21st century. After many attempts, I decided no one will give that opportunity at my previous employer so I threw caution to the wind and quit my job without any prospects. And then I found Skillcrush! I still have over a month left before the end of Web Design Blueprint but I already have the confidence to complete and launch my first website that was stalled a few years ago on my first attempt, and I will add it to my portfolio!
Since I don't have a job, I was able to sign up for the course at a discounted price. This is a great incentive and my wallet appreciates it! I am a programmer so I do have the propensity for coding and I really enjoy the HTML and CSS cla...Read more
