BrainStation regularly hosts Demo Day, our graduate project showcase, across all campuses, and the most recent was the best yet, with over 800 hiring partners and industry professionals in attendance.
BrainStation diploma programs culminate with students producing an individual portfolio piece for their final Capstone project, and Demo Day is an opportunity to share these projects with hiring partners, fellow students, and the BrainStation community.
We’ve rounded up a few of the top projects from graduates of our last Data Science, User Experience Design, and Web Development diploma programs.

Matthew Monaco – Web Development Diploma Program
Matthew created a React Native iOS app, Ova, which is a real-time two-player word game.
