geekbrains.ru is all a pure scam for money and nothing more. This is not a good, not a bad education — just a scam, but legally very competently designed-which is the worst. So in order about geekbrains.ru:

2) They are not a division of mail.ru groups. The owner of geekbrains.ru really is mail.ru groups, but they just bought them out, first partially, and then completely, simply as a profitable project that allows you to legally "‖fraud people for money. As a matter of fact. He also bought a part of the same skilbox, where the scheme is very similar.
3) After a month (not many people last longer — but that’s the calculation. of this whole scheme) you will realize that it is a waste of money and time and try to get it back — you will have many months of adventures with We’ll send it tomorrow" "we’ll call you back" etc. If you are very stubborn, you will get your money back, but to your surprise literally pennies. The contract they have very cleverly drafted — for example, strangely enough, but the cost of the first 3 months of training is somehow 50% of the cost of the entire 16-month course…why I think you guessed it :). They should have set 99% of the entire tuition for the 1st
