The staff was ALWAYS available to assist and provide guidance. Additionally they are all passionate about teaching and making sure the students truly understand which made learning that much easier. The level documentation and reference material given is outstanding, haven't taken a course that even comes close.  

The staff does an amazing job with preparing students for life after the course. This include resume and LinkedIn prep as well as providing mock code interviews for students to begin to feel more comfortable with the new knowledge they have.

I attended SD back in 2020. I feel I got a thorough full stack education that prepared me well for my first software dev role. Amongst other things I learned, Java, Javascript, and SQL are so in demand on the market right now. The teachers are excellent and a great resource. SD helped me to get a great job and I couldn't thank them enough for that!

This course is challenging and very worth the effort. If you're the kind of person that picks your education for the challenge and quality of the curriculum, Skill Distillery is the right choice. After reviewing many bootcamps, I chose Skill Distillery because of it's foundation in Java (a more challenging language than JavaScript), focus on back end development (I wanted to make things work more than I wanted to make a webpage look pretty), and its reputation for being a challenging course.
