"Overall an incredibly streamlined way to learn UX, but make sure you are ready to self motivate yourself and keep on track!"

This course met my expectations and gave me a good foundation to build upon. I have worked as a freelance web designer in the past, so I believe I was at an advantage compared to those who had not worked within design before. I feel for those I talked... Read More

Also to note: the job guarantee due to COVID is longer than 6 months, likely 12. The sales person who got me to sign up made it seem pretty cut and dry that it was 6 months. I then paid and got to read the fine print and was slightly disappointed.

Pros:
- Streamlines what you need to know when starting out.
- Great mentorship.
- Good solid projects and support for these projects.
- easy to use student portal with all curriculum and important information easy to find.

Cons:
- If you do not already have experience using design software you will spend WAY more time learning this than the others who know some already.
- Booking calls for support can sometimes be a bit hard to find.
- Most of the content they share is links to and resources that are not their content, so technically you could find most of this on your own.

"UI / UX Design Bootcamp"

The bootcamp was great! It's intense, but I feel a lot more confident entering the field. My background is in hospitality, so I was worried about starting a new career in design. However, between the mentors, career coaches, and projects, I feel ready... Read More

The one downside is that most of the curriculum is free online resources. It feels a little expensive when considering you can read most of the articles (and watch the videos) online for free. The main draw of Springboard is the mentors and the help with building your portfolio.

"The Pinnacle of Online Learning"

I'll be honest, I applied to a bootcamp out of desperation. I could not force myself to study programming in a long time, but I thought it was because my studying needed structure. As it turned out, it did, but Springboard absolutely inverted my expectations... Read More

- Structured, modularized curriculum, that gradually moves your from the basics to more advanced topics
- Active and supportive community
- Weekly 1-on-1 meetings with a current expert in the Software Engineering field
- Flexible deadlines
- Weekly office hours with Springboard team

"Get Hired as a Data Scientist before even finishing the Springboard Data Science Career Track!"

I wanted to change career and industry for several years and I chose Springboard's Data Science Career Track to do so while I had just been laid off “thanks to” the Covid-19 and oil crises. Great timing for a career change, I know...
I studied the Data... Read More

Pros:
- 100% online curriculum with great resources and lectures from Harvard, Stanford...etc... All interactions with advisors, mentors, coaches are online and on a flexible schedule.
- You'll get enrolled in DataCamp and have access to extra practice/project work to master your skills (Python, SQL, Pyspark, Github...). I love DataCamp and will remain a member.
- You'll have access to LinkedIn learning, Medium, Towards Data Science.
- Weekly presentations (career sessions, business hour Q&A, guest presentation)
- Weekly meetings with your assigned mentor. You can schedule additional sessions if needed.
- You can select your own career coach from a long list of Springboard career coaches (their background and skills are diverse which makes the coaching experience invaluable). I personally chose one career coach and followed up with him throughout the program.
- You'll get to work on a lot of projects (40ish), 3 capstone projects to apply what you've learned and your work will be reviewed by TAs who have a great sense of humor.
- Springboard conference (Rise!) and seminars (wellness, career...) during which you can interact with fellow students, alumni, employers...
- Because the program is online and always accessible you can do it in 6 months as planned or in 4 to 5 months. I am now on week 16 with 84% completed. It is really up to you.

Cons: There are no cons as far as I am concerned however you need to know that the program requires drive and self-discipline because there is a lot to do and so little time... You'll get help and tips from your student advisor, the career services, your career coach, your mentor, the TAs, and even from other students. The bottom line is that you need to stay on task and have the time to work on your projects.

The program is worth more than you pay for. There is a steep learning curve but it remains fun all the way and it works! If you are afraid of not 'being good enough', start with the Data Science Career Preparation which will give you a taste of the level of statistics and Python coding you need. It is only 4 week-long, about $500 which will be credited towards your Data Science Career Track tuition upon successfull completion.
