A great way to get started on the coding trail or ignite an extinguished flame that may have once burned. I’ve been on course’s where I feel I’ve gained very little but loved UXbootcamp, real sense of achievement from doing this.
- Rob Sterry, UX Consultant, Aviva
UX Bootcamp provided a distraction-free environment for experimentation and learning together with like-minded people. The expert trainers were always around and happy to help, no matter how trivial or complicated my questions were.
- Alexander Baxevanis, Senior UX consultant, Webcredible
UX Bootcamp was an excellent opportunity for UXers/designers in a number of different roles and companies, to come together and learn valuable skills that they would otherwise not have the time (and access to experts) to do so. The instructors were highly knowledgeable and approachable, and the course was structured in such a way that it allowed for us to achieve a lot in a small amount of time.
- Jamie Brooker, Co-Founder, We Are Human
Possibly the most enjoyable course I’ve been on. If it’s the sort of thing you’re into, then it’s a great chance to meet like minded folks and really get your hands dirty.
- Lucy Spence, LOVEFiLM
I really enjoyed UX Bootcamp. The instructors were excellent and the material we covered was top notch. I would definitely be up for attending another one in the near future and I highly recommend it. Excellent group of people to learn with also. Cheers to all those involved.
- Daniel Beere, Digital Media Design Student
Getting to learn the nuances of code from experienced professionals was much more effective than learning from some online tutorial. Of course, meeting and socializing with other UX professionals makes it even better.
