Hear from some of our past trainees:

"The JumpStart! program has ingrained in me industry best practices such as test driven development. I can now bring these concepts to my workplace and ensure I deliver code that is well-tested and robust!" - Pakata Goh


"The JumpStart! bootcamp was life-changing. It was no walk in the park, but the amount of support I had from our mentors and peers made it so much easier. Before, I was skeptical if I could learn everything in the program outline. It was only afterwards that I realized how much I grew. The mentors not only armed us with the tools and practices, but also taught me how to overcome problems and uncertainties." - Tan Hui Tian


"My experience with JumpStart! has been excellent. The course content was well-curated, up-to-date and relevant to industry demand. We learned the fundamentals and also had the opportunity to explore individual interests, ranging from data visualization to natural language processing. The course has definitely reinforced our portfolio and will help boost our job search. Best of all, JumpStart! gave me not only the kind of focused time to develop my skills, but also a great group of passionate instructors and helpful peers to learn and grow with!" - Nicole Budiman
