It was good but it was very rushed. They spent a lot of time on lecture and we didn't have much time doing some course work.
I am a motion graphics and VFX producer. I took this class because of the increase in requests we've been getting to take on projects that require our team working with UX Designers. This bootcamp was perfect for my needs. There were two instructors that had very different personalities and teaching styles, this worked really well, and made it feel like we were getting a diversity of opinions on the topics. The top-level introduction to Omnigraffle helped a lot, and was a great intro to the software, not only how to use it, but when to use it. General Assembly was a great atmosphere for the course, buzzing with tech conversations. The class room itself got a little too crowded, and there were a couple of students who did not get a desk. Get there early. I would recommend this course for anyone looking to gain a more formal knowledge of what UX is and is not. It would be a great for: someone interested in making a career change, clients who should understand the process more, project managers, producers, and designers. Hope this helped. -Ted
