"Springboard Cyber Security Bootcamp: The Ultimate Launchpad for Aspiring Cybersecurity Professionals"

I recently completed the Springboard Cyber Security Career Track bootcamp, and I couldn't be more satisfied with the experience. The curriculum was incredibly thorough, covering all the essential aspects of cybersecurity, and the hands-on exercises were... Read More

One of the standout features of the bootcamp is the support system. Whenever I faced challenges, the Slack channels were a lifesaver. Students and Peer Mentors were always ready to help with any questions or issues. Additionally, having an assigned mentor for regular meetings provided personalized guidance and support throughout the program.

The structure and pacing of the program were also well-designed. It's self-paced, allowing flexibility, but you need to complete it within six months unless you opt to pay for additional months. This setup kept me motivated and on track without feeling overwhelmed.

Coming into the bootcamp with no prior cybersecurity background, I was amazed at how much I learned and how my skills improved. The Capstone Project, where we conducted a simulated penetration test of a fictional company, was a highlight. It provided a comprehensive learning experience, from executing the pen test to writing an executive summary as well as a detailed technical report.

I would highly recommend the Springboard Cyber Security bootcamp to anyone looking to switch gears and enter the cybersecurity field. Whether you need to brush up on your skills or start from scratch, and especially if you don't have time for a four-year bachelor's degree, this bootcamp is the next best thing.

"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.
