Skillcrush Reviews

You don’t have to go back to school. You don’t need to be under 30, 40, or even 60. You don’t have to leave your job or take time off. You don’t even have to know a single thing about code—if you can download a file, you’re tech-savvy enough.

  • Within a month of finishing my Front End Developer Course, I landed my first client. I made back the money that it cost to take the course AND paid my car note with that first job!

  • I dove into my Front End Developer Course in March and April while I was living in Europe, and then I returned home and started freelancing. Honestly, I didn’t even finish the course until November…. I was so busy taking on work that didn’t need it!
