Our instructor... was clear, detail oriented, and made the learning environment safe and collaborative. We got a lot of real world examples from him, and all the little details he shared made this entire course special, and more than simply reading a textbook.

Overall, I'm a big advocate for Brainstation's courses - they've proved to be extremely valuable in my career.

My ultimate goal was to start my own company, and though I didn’t have a specific idea in mind at that time, I knew that BrainStation could provide me with the skills I would need to take an idea from conception to execution.

It's always hard to start something new, especially when it involves learning skills that you know will force you to think differently about your day-to-day work. I'm glad I got over that fear and signed up for two classes... both were fantastic!
