See What Our Members Say About Us


I joined Upstream Coding's Modern Website Development Coding Series already having a solid foundation in web development, however regardless of experience my time at Upstream Coding has been both rewarding and challenging.

Learners are exposed to a wealth of knowledge in small, digestible chunks, ranging from, but not limited to: HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, Responsive Design, JavaScript, jQuery, GitHub, Google Chrome's Developer Tools, and more.

The curriculum Upstream presents provide a necessary strong foundation for anyone looking to become a developer and what better way to learn than to work on several projects for real, established companies.

The small classroom environment provides a great opportunity to both interact and get personalized attention. Speaking of which Upstream's instructors and TAs are not only knowledgeable, but are both personable and charismatic.

I also appreciate how involved Upstream's instructors are when discussing members outcome, providing several opportunities throughout the course to speak with people in tech, recruiters, and potential employers.

I would absolutely recommend Upstream Coding's Modern Website Development Coding Series for anyone looking to gain a strong foundation in development.

I consider it an honor to be a member of the inaugural Upstream Coding Modern Web Dev class. 6 weeks ago I didn't even know what HTML was. Now, however, I am (slowly but surely) building my own websites.

The course was a nice blend of structured and adaptive. If we needed more time to grasp a concept, we were given the extra time and attention. Beyond code we also covered getting a Portfolio together, Resume/Interviewing, had a industry leader as a guest speaker, and have been linked up with potential internship opportunities.

There were some growing pains associated with being the first ones through, but as anyone who has ever started an enterprise of any sort knows, these type things are unavoidable. I am confident Alan and Josh and company will take those lessons learned and the next cohort will be even better.

I think the vital information worth passing along in this review is that if you choose to take a course with Upstream, they are committed to you learning the material. I have had instructors stay late after class. They have even made a VC on both the weekends and weeknights when I was stuck on a bit of code. They continue to offer me their advice and support as the class ends. I believe they have given me the base of knowledge I needed to eventually get my foot in the door as a Front End Web Dev. Can't wait for Modern Web Dev course 2!
