"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 in terms of curricula, affordability, quality of instructors, etc. I tried Skillspire, and I liked it, and decided to complete both Full Stack web Development and Data Analytics programs.
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 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.

Read More instructor who while providing you with all the tools you need will let you work your own way to the solution. I saw people who have never even gone to a school course on computing start coding using the tools every other professional in full stack tech jobs use in just a couple of class days. I learned because the instructor gives you all the materials you need and a way to communicate via email and other tech, but this is a course you must study for and make time (maybe 30 minutes a day or an hour) on your own out of class to really stay on top. I would recommend this Boot Camp to my own family and friends because it is very much worth it, and it lead to me actually finding employment while enrolled.
"Great school and very affordable option to be certified"
After i finished the course i kept applying for jobs and a week later i got a job as a full stack software developer. Special thanks to Skillspire and its administration and specially the instructors for all the hard work they invested with us and how it helped me personally to land my first job in the industry.
