Testimonials from Students
I have nothing bur wonderful feedback about this school. The teacher of my class on C# and Azure Ruby was dedicated and besides a great software engineer is also a great mentor in addition to being a great instructor and was available for help and my fellow students we also a good source of ideas and we worked well in a team. It's rare to find a class that is exactly what I have been wanting to study for almost 5 years at an affordable price especially since most bootcamps are between $10k and $30k and make you sign an income sharing agreement. I would take another course in C# and Azure if there is ever a sequel to the course I tool.
"I had the best experience at Skillspire. I didn't expect to gain a lot of knowledge with only twice a week classes. Yasmine (the ceo) was very informative and friendly when I went to her office to talk about registration. The instructor(Nithin) was very helpful and a text away when we need help with homework and went beyond and above to make sure we understand the lesson. After we completed the course Terri helped a lot from making resume to getting us interviews. Skillspire is the best place to go to if you are planning to become a full stack developer. Best staff and affordable price comparing to other coding boot comps."
"It was a very good idea to take your class! I am very happy that I finished it! It is very hard to make first step to your dreams. Thank you for helping me to make this step! I got very good experience with Skillspire. Thank you to Farhad for his patience and hard work! He is a good teacher!"
"First things first. I really do not like to write reviews, and when I do I like to write. the review in the hope that it either encourages or constructively criticize the subject that I happen to be reviewing. With that said I would like to give my honest assessment of Skillspire a coding bootcamp in Bellevue, WA. Skillspire was founded by Yasmin Ali, who created Skillspire to help those who cannot afford to attend college, but also, and I believe more importantly, to help people of marginally discriminated populations find technical work that they can build a life around. For this, I absolutely applaud her and Skillspire! The instructors at Skillspire are absolutely top notch. They know their respective skillset inside and out, and they do not hesitate to share; with passion, humility and humor their knowledge and wisdom. In the 16 week course that I took we were challenged by countless interruptions (covid) throughout the course. The course started in January and ended in May, at first we had in person instruction, but of course we were forced to move online due to social distancing measures. My instructor Farhad, took it all in stride, held us all accountable and made sure to work with us individually during this difficult time. He was encouraging and helpful for each of us in class and personally, I will forever be grateful for his graciousness. The Java course that I took was based on multiple projects building up to a final project that we were encouraged to team up for at the end. We also focused on using git, specifically GitHub for storing source code but also as a great tool for showcasing your skills in terms of coding and writing. We also focused on cloud computing for building full scale cloud based java applications. I went in to this course not knowing Java at all and came out absolutely confident in my ability to pass a coding interview in Java. Currently I am looking for work as a software engineer and I have the upmost confidence that I will be able to get started on a new career adventure with ease thanks to Skillspire offering career building services. Terri Pauly is a godsend as a resume/interview coach. She knows her stuff and exudes passion when she is helping you find your dream job. Skillspire offers top-notch coding instruction from industry professionals, excellent career building services and has a mission that is admirable and needs to succeed. I would recommend Skillspire to anyone looking to create a better life by learning how to code. You will absolutely be in good hands."
"I really enjoyed my time at Skillspire, it was both fun and challenging. While I knew more about coding than my fellow peers, I had an excellent teacher who guided me and pushed me harder than anyone else in order for me to become a better programmer and further my coding skills. You basically get what you put in, and I put in the hours and the hard work to succeed. I would highly recommend this course for anyone who either needs to improve their programming skills or simply wants to get into coding and learn the basics. And compared to other coding boot camps, it's much more affordable and also does a better job at covering only what you really need at a deeper level rather than trying to teach you everything at a more basic level."
"Are you looking into new career, or want to gain new skills and knowledge in computer science, programming, and analytics? Then look no farther than SkillSpire. Whether you are a beginner or just wanting to advance your skills, this program will help you succeed no matter your background and experiences. The instructors are not only there to teach you but also guide you and advice you how to get ready for an interview and share with you how to be successful in the industry. Program leaders like Yasmin Ali and Terri Pauly work around the clock to help you find appropriate jobs or at least help you make connection with potential employers. I highly recommend this school to everyone!"
"My name is Ahmed Yussuf, and I’m very grateful to be a student at Skillspire. I studied full stack web development which opened the door for me into tech industry and most importantly changed my way of thinking and solving problems. I’m now confident to tackle any problem and find solutions. I’m also able now to build applications, do testing website and build professional websites using the skills and knowledge gained in the course. What I also find interesting is, the instructor is very accessible in all times and resourceful to us. The instructor some times made for us personalized classes to dive into difficult concepts and made us understand without any problems. I’m moved by the management of this coding school and appreciate for all they did for me when there was social distancing due to COVID19. Thank you so much again."
"The overall experience was great, challenging, very informative and it helped me to realize that this is my passion and that Data Analytics is what I want to do with my career. The program gives a good understanding of what to expect when dealing with real-world data. "
"Great course! I would highly recommend for those who are really wanting to learn web development. I love the content and hand on approach of the specific lessons to prepare myself."
"I completed the Full Stack Development Program and it was the best choice I could have made. It really helped give me a firm understanding of Web Development and Software Programming. I left feeling like I know the terminology I needed to continue by education and search for a job. I highly recommend."
"This course helped me get a job and change my life, very nice and friendly teachers and they are always ready to help. Thank you for every one at Skillspire for this great bootcamp and programs."
"I want to begin by saying that changing industries in to tech is difficult but very rewarding; Skillspire made something that looked impossible and foreign easy by making it a step by step process that encouraged learning by having a very accessible instructor who while providing you with all the tools you need will let you work your own way to the solution. I saw people who have never even gone to a school course computing start coding using the tools every other professional in full stack tech jobs use in just a couple of class days. I learned because the instructor gives you all the materials you need and a way to communicate via email and other tech, but this is a course you must study for and make time (maybe 30 minutes a day, or an hour) on your own out of class to really stay on top. I would recommend this bootcamp to my own family and friends because it is very much worth it, and it lead to me actually finding employment while enrolled."
