"Springboard's UI/UX Design Program Review"

Having recently completed Springboard's UI/UX Design program, I can confidently say it was an enriching experience overall. One of the highlights was undoubtedly the people I had the opportunity to connect with, especially my mentor, who demonstrated... Read More

The curriculum provided a solid foundation in UI/UX design principles, equipping me with the necessary skills to tackle real-world challenges. However, one area for improvement could be the currency of the content. While the program covered essential concepts, incorporating more up-to-date technological advancements would have enhanced its relevance in today's rapidly evolving landscape.

Despite this, I emerged from the program with a deeper understanding of UI/UX design and a newfound confidence in my abilities. I would highly recommend Springboard's UI/UX Design program to anyone looking to embark on a career in this field.
