TESTIMONIALS

Alumni Reviews

The Astrolabs part-time Coding bootcamp is focused and current, teaching sought after skills around fullstack JavaScript. I never imagined that I’d be able to build a complete MERN stack application in 8 weeks, whilst still working full time. This bootcamp delivered beyond my expectations and cemented my desire to pursue web development.

The environment was great. Instructors were super helpful and did everything in a timely manner, very flexible at all times. Everything I learned during this boot camp was very helpful to get me started on the process of learning web development and gave me just the right fundamentals and knowledge to move further and learn even more.
