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.

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.
