So if you're here, I'm guessing you're thinking about a career in UX design. I've done my research before deciding to enroll in the full time Bitmaker UX & Product Design course, so I've been there. Something a lot of people told me about the course was "You get what you put in", and I'm going to tell you the same. Speaking candidly, UX is competitive and you need to know that this is what you want, and be hungry enough to chase the dream.

At the time, I was making a huge career shift and had already taken the first steps into UX design by self-teaching the basics. Admittedly, I was a little skeptical at the beginning of the course. A lot of the material being taught were things I had already read/studied on my own, but it meant I was on the right track. This course is a good start into the world of UX, but be prepared to read books on your own time and keep up with all the design happenings in the world.

In terms of job assistance, a lot of schools will try to sell you on their support. The career coach will be there to provide helpful guidance and counselling but they will not/are not responsible for finding you a job. Our coach was very energetic and it was clear that she only wished the best for the students.

The instructors are knowledgable but hands-off. There is no micromanaging. In the beginning, I was a little surprised by how much freedom the instructors gave us. Having been a university student, I was familiar with more rules and restrictions. This was different; when lost, the approach was to figure it out and learn along the way. Instructors are there to be a beam of support should you need feedback and field knowledge. It was difficult at first, but something you will have to adjust to. After all, UX is not a field for the stagnant.

One thing, was that our cohort had multiple instructors which sometimes created a disconnect between the lectures. However, the atmosphere and treatment from staff was informal and genuine (which was nice).

That's it. Good luck on your search. If you enroll in the UX design course at Bitmaker with the right expectations and mindset, it will be worth it.

TL;DR; Good intro course for UX design, but be prepared to self-study and learn outside of school. Genuine and friendly staff and atmosphere. Set the right expectations and mindset going in, everything else will fall into place with hard work.

I'm a technical recruiter and took Bitmaker's web development course to help me get a better understanding of the front-end positions I recruit for! Turns out I got hooked on development and could create my own responsive web pages using HTML/CSS by the end. Super cool. The course can seem a bit pricey, but it helped me fast-track my learning and save a ton of time I would've spent searching blindly online for free courses. The campus is really cool. Definitely a strong startup vibe and culture I found that the class was easy to follow along and I definitely learned a lot from Rocco who was the instructor. He went step by step and built on each lesson as we went so that I had time to fully absorb the information. All-in-all, Bitmaker was an amazing place for a beginner to learn the basics about coding/programming. You don't need to be a computer nerd to apply!

I took Bitmaker Lab's Web Development course back in October of 2015. I started with basic html and css experience from a high school computer class but hadn't brushed up on those skills in years. By the time I graduated from Bitmaker I was able to build polished web applications and apply amazing learning habits (you could say I learned how to learn - a critical mindset for any web developer today). The school hires excellent teachers who are professionals in their fields, and the curriculum offers a nice balance of teaching and independent, hand-on projects. You'll be expected to work "after hours", so be careful if you plan to balance this and more than occasional part-time work. The proof of Bitmaker's quality is in the pudding, though. After graduation, I received 2 job offers (10 interviews) and have been happily working as a full-stack developer at a great digital agency ever since! I'm extremely glad I decided to make a tough career decision when I did (early thirties). I highly recommend Bitmaker to anyone who's serious about web development and willing to put in the hours.
