Learn a powerful framework to understand data, from exploring and managing data sets to performing analysis and communicating insights. Following the data, rather than hunches, enables individuals and companies to make better decisions. You’ll go hands-on with everything from spreadsheet modelling to visualization tools and build a final all-inclusive project with your new skills.

What You’ll Learn 

  • Approaching data the right way: If you approach a problem with a solution in mind already, you’ll convince yourself it’s right and ignore other possibilities. Avoid this and other common pitfalls by adopting a rigorous analytical workflow.
  • Exploring data for insights: Your business collects a lot of data, but how do you navigate and understand it? Learn how to explore data in Excel and identify the right questions to ask.
  • Managing data in SQL: Some of the most valuable insights can come from seeing data update in real-time. Learn how to interact with databases and query them for valuable information.
  • Sharing your insights: Walking through your analysis step-by-step may not be the best way to share a critical finding. Learn how to visualize and present the outcomes of your analysis to stakeholders.

Bitmaker was a launching pad for me into a better career with higher pay and more interesting work. Overall, I'd recommend the web development program to anyone who is serious about making a career change.

The instructors were knowledgable, friendly and totally committed to student success. The curriculum was pretty broad, but you'll be taught fundamental concepts, skills and tools needed to learn on your own, which is what you'll need to do to succeed as a professional developer anyway. Just be prepared to work independently and ask a lot of questions. You'll have amazing resources available to you pretty much 24/7.

My only advice for Bitmaker is to work on its career services. The school has only one full-time career support person (an outcomes advisor). She's truly excellent at her job and helped me communicate my value and prepare for interviews, but she was a bit stretched working with so many students. Part-time advisors could help smooth out this part of the experience.

If you doubt Bitmaker can get you a great job--don't. I'm living proof that with hard work, determination and the right education and direction, you can change your career and your life!

Bitmaker General Assembly's 10-week part-time UX course was exactly what I needed to take my graphic design experience to a whole new level. The course was fast-paced but manageable, and the instructors were completely open to class feedback and questions. Job support is okay for part-time courses compared to the attention full-time bootcamp grads get, but I knew that going in. Overall, a great experience that's helping me take on whole new kinds of professional projects.

FAQ

  • Do you provide financing?

    We work with some great partners to provide financing options to our students, including a 6-month deferred payment option that allows students to make no payments until after completing the course. Qualifying applicants can: Cover your total course fees; choose a term of up to 60 months; or pay early with no penalties. Traditional term loans are also available.

  • What do I leave the course with? What will I have accomplished?

    By the end of the course you’ll have completed several individual and group projects, culminating in one primary portfolio project. Your portfolio project is your main showpiece that you will complete during the final two weeks of the course, but all assignment work can also be expanded and leveraged when demonstrating your skills and learning curve to prospective employers. You’ll have become friends with your amazing classmates and cultivated relationships with incredible mentors. If you make the most of the career support and networking opportunities, you’ll also leave the course with a network that will help you get started. This course will help you develop foundational skills to enable you to continuously learn and add new skills. Every new job, even within the same technology set, requires developers to relearn many skills. You’ll be prepared with the core knowledge you need to make these leaps.

  • What post-program support does Bitmaker General Assembly offer?

    We offer extensive career support after the program, which includes a demo day showcasing your portfolio projects. Our career support team is here to mentor you as you are searching work and help you get your foot in the door with warm introductions to our extensive network of partners. Additionally, we offer alumni office hours to Web Development graduates in order to provide support as you continue to learn new skills. Our doors will always be open to alumni and we want to help them success however we can.

  • Can I get to Bitmaker General Assembly by way of public transit?

    Our downtown Toronto campus is located at 220 King St West, which is very close to St. Andrew Station and the King streetcar. We’re also a 15-minute walk from Union Station if you are commuting on the GO network.
