"real disappointment"

We all get that this is NOT a university program, this is a bootcamp where people with previous degree/ or comparative experience should be allowed, it should be clear from the beginning that you won't learn to code in 3 months.
Unfortunately everybody... Read More

"Amazing Experience!!"

Attending SPICED Academy was one of the best decisions I have made. Since I was moving from the US to Berlin for this course, I did a substantial amount of research in order to find the right school for me and I ultimately chose SPICED. I applied in March... Read More

That being said, this course is also incredibly demanding - it is a bootcamp after all! I spent an average of 10-12 hours every day at school for 6 days of the week. This is a fast-paced learning environment where you are challenged on a daily basis and expected to learn by doing. One of the first things I learned at SPICED was getting comfortable with certain parts of your application not working and how to patiently troubleshoot and work with your peers to figure things out together. This is all part of the learning process! There were times when I was incredibly frustrated and other times when I was overjoyed because I made something work on my own.

In all, I absolutely recommend SPICED for anyone interested in making a commitment to learning programming. It was a gratifying experience that provided me with the skills necessary to apply to the workplace as a junior developer. You just have to be willing to put in the work in order to truly see progress in your abilities and get the most out of this course.

"An overall awesome experience"

Graduating from SPICED Academy is truly a life-changing experience. You will learn an insane amount of things in encouranging and motivating atmosphere, you will master soft skills as well as tech skills necessary to land a job, you will always find support... Read More

Every day I went there with excitement and joy about what I'm going to learn and build today. I was never bored and always challenged. I absolutely loved it and had no trouble finding a junior position.

I recommend preparing beyond the prep course they provide you with though and mess with a code a bit beforehand -- it will make your life much easier.

Stuff to improve: more teachers and including more materials on git, testing and production environment.

"Just do it!"

I recommend to anyone reading this and considering attending a SPICED bootcamp to just do it.

It is objectively worth it.

And nothing you read in reviews will compare to how unbelievably amazing of an experience it will actually be.

"Outstanding teacher in a pleasant environment"

I also attended the first Data Science cohort and I can fully support the positive comments made below by Konstantin. The course at SPICED was very valuable and intensive likewise. We got more than just a brief hands-on introduction on each topic as often... Read More

After graduation we now know a lot more about clean, well-structured and object-oriented coding in Python and respective frameworks, and about getting a project from development to employment. We have also got a profound understanding of the underlying theories of both supervised and unsupervised machine learning techniques, when to use them and how to evaluate them in the right manner. All in all, it has been the course I was looking for. I got everything at hand I need to know to dive deeper in any Data Science related topic and I feel well prepared for future work. Beside the course itself I think that it`s been a nice working environment with plenty of pleasant people to talk with and to share experiences.

"Amazing Experience"

I just finished the first ever Data Science course at SPICED and I couldn‘t be happier about the whole experience.

The curriculum is great and well thught out. Every week we covered a new topic, which can be summarized like this: In the first 4 weeks we... Read More

Kristian, the head teacher, is just amazing. He knows everything about Python and Data Science, and - maybe even more importantly - you can see that he really enjoys teaching. This makes for a very special combination! He is great at explaining difficult topics in a simple manner, so you can pick them up quickly. Also, he is always trying to make the curriculum as interesting for the students as possible. So for example, each week he asked us what areas of that week’s topic are of special interest to us, so he could adjust the topics/material according to our interests. I think he is what makes this data science program really special. In addition, the whole environment (employees/fellow students/equipment/facilities etc) at SPICED is very pleasant and makes for a great learning atmosphere.

All in all, I’m very happy I decided to take this course. I had a great time at SPICED and learned a great deal! I would definately do it again.

"Great Intro"

I think the course is a really great intro into the world of programming and Javascript.

I like the way the curriculmn is laid out, with every new lesson feeling a little more complex than the last.

I like the exposure to two different frameworks: Vue... Read More

At times, the course can really challenge you which is a really good lesson to determine if this is something you want to do long term. Those uncomfortable challenging moments will persist once you enter the job market...so really assess if this is something you want.

Some things the course doesn't offer that I've found to be important (reflections after entering the job market) is exposure to the git process when programming as a team or in groups. I think this is really crucial to first days on the job, and will just take more time to learn. The course doesn't touch upon or discuss testing, which can really set yourself apart when looking for a job (often times the coding challenges ask for these).

Also keep in mind that after graduating this 12 week course, you will still be very very beginning and have a LOT more to learn on the job.
