"I threw 825 EUR in the trash"

Python Remote course in English:

Software Development academy Estonia remote course, I am writing here cause the main office is in Poland.

I can say I have lost 825€. I withdrew from the contract at half of the course.

I’ll start saying that I’m not new... Read More

I have made my researches before getting in this course, I added many people on LinkedIn related to the SDA and asked them how was their experience and 90% of the feedbacks I have got was good. So I was feeling exited to start this journey with sda that was also recommended from a my colleague who’s a backend developer here in Wroclaw.

At the beginning I/we were just a bit worried about the material given to us from sda but the first two teacher were compensating with their knowledge.

After about 2 months sda started changing teachers.
At that point everything got worse.
The teachers started rotating between them. We started having teachers that barely spoke English and the material was really poorly written in English and even though we asked with many complaints to them to review it and upgrade nothing still had changed.

For the records I have to say that At the end when I was leaving they asked me if they would cover back all the “missed and badly delivered” lectures for free if I would stay. Due the total disappointment I said no. At that period I had found 100 times better material online for practically free confronting the sda price range.
Other 3 people left the course.

I want to underline and repeat myself that I am talking about The Python remote course from scratch.
The others might be excellent courses, but this was my experience with that one. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Drop me a message I can send u plenty of material for basically free. Instead of spending thousands of euros for course that isn’t worth 300 EUR.

Here attached an email that a teacher wrote for us being concerned about general disappointment of the class.

I have plenty of other screenshots feel free to ping me on LinkedIn or fb and I’ll reply you back :).

"The guidance that you need in IT"

This was just what I needed to be able to switch to a career in IT. I have tried alot to study on my own, to follow guides online and so on, but it just wasn't enough.
The course helped me understand the full scope of a developer job and offered knowledge... Read More

As a result of the course, I got a job as an Application Management Engineer in the same month I have finished my course.

Pros:
-A great deal of knowledge and subjects in the curriculum
-Supportive and experienced teachers
-HR support for CV and LinkedIn account
-300+ hours of practical and theoretical study, which is more then I have seen on other courses

Cons:
-You need to put in alot of extra-effort, especially if you have zero knowledge of programming; attending just the course is not enough (it's something they tell you from the beginning), you need to work at home as well, which can be difficult if you have a job as well (this is not necessarily a con)
-Some of the tools studied are outdated (like JavaFX), but this is usually changed with newer generations of students
-It can seem like there is a huge deal of knowledge crammed into a small time-frame, especially if you don't put in any extra effort at home; I would suggest spending more time on the important tools and knowledge, like the Java basics, Spring Boot, Angular etc, and less on things like Java FX or parts of Spring that would take more then a day to understand (like Spring Security), done in half a day
