Sajid Akhtar
Technology Director, Data Science Practice - Publicis Media MENA

The Astrolabs part-time Coding bootcamp is focused and current, teaching sought after skills around fullstack JavaScript. I never imagined that I’d be able to build a complete MERN stack application in 8 weeks, whilst still working full time. This bootcamp delivered beyond my expectations and cemented my desire to pursue web development.
