"Full Stack Web Developer, experienced in IT project management, including developing business requirements and creating product design"

I have a strong background in IT, yet was still looking for opportunities to grow both academically, professionally, and financially by fully switching into Tech field. So, I did some research on available training out there. Skillspire stood to be amazing... Read More

Compared to Colleges instructors, Skillspire's do cut short, they teach me industry skills and make me become more competitive. Things like loops, functions, data structures, algorithms just seem to be a piece of cake. And I cannot believe I am able to get everything in a very short time.

Skillspire learning environment is fun and safe, instructors are great, and I believe because they all have rich industry and professional experience; they are so easy to understand, and they take time to handle students' queries.

I will definitely recommend Skillspire to anyone, students, professionals as well as to all refugees and immigrants who would love to get their feet in tech industry, make big income and change life.

Beyond training me, Skillspire staff provide me a wide range of employment services, as well as a wide network of tech professionals. From the beginning, I just feel like I have been in tech industry for years.

Skillspire is the right place to be: it is fun, safe, affordable.

"Quality instruction at the best price around."

First things first. I really do not like to write reviews, and when I do I like to write. the review in the hope that it either encourages or constructively criticize the subject that I happen to be reviewing. With that said I would like to give my honest... Read More

Skillspire was founded by Yasmin Ali, who created Skillspire to help those who cannot afford to attend college, but also, and I believe more importantly, to help people of marginally discriminated populations find technical work that they can build a life around. For this, I absolutely applaud her and Skillspire!

The instructors at Skillspire are absolutely top notch. They know their respective skillset inside and out, and they do not hesitate to share; with passion, humility and humor their knowledge and wisdom. In the 16 week course that I took we were challenged by countless interruptions (covid) throughout the course. The course started in January and ended in May, at first we had in person instruction, but of course we were forced to move online due to social distancing measures. My instructor Farhad, took it all in stride, held us all accountable and made sure to work with us individually during this difficult time. He was encouraging and helpful for each of us in class and personally, I will forever be grateful for his graciousness.

The Java course that I took was based on multiple projects building up to a final project that we were encouraged to team up for at the end. We also focused on using git, specifically GitHub for storing source code but also as a great tool for showcasing your skills in terms of coding and writing. We also focused on cloud computing for building full scale cloud based java applications. I went in to this course not knowing Java at all and came out absolutely confident in my ability to pass a coding interview in Java.

Currently I am looking for work as a software engineer and I have the upmost confidence that I will be able to get started on a new career adventure with ease thanks to Skillspire offering career building services. Terri Pauly is a godsend as a resume/interview coach. She knows her stuff and exudes passion when she is helping you find your dream job.

Skillspire offers top-notch coding instruction from industry professionals, excellent career building services and has a mission that is admirable and needs to succeed. I would recommend Skillspire to anyone looking to create a better life by learning how to code. You will absolutely be in good hands.
