There is no right or wrong choice but they provide different outcomes based on what you are looking to gain out of the course.
Which should I take: the Intro course or the Bootcamp?
Ask yourself: "Do I want to work as a professional developer?"
If the answer is 'yes', then there is no question that the full-time development bootcamp is the program you need.
The goal of our bootcamp is to transform you into a professional full-stack developer. You’ll come to understand coding logic, and learn how to think like a dev by building software from the ground up using industry-relevant technologies. Our program will provide you with mentorship, data-driven curriculum and a top notch learning environment that will launch you into your first junior developer role.
If the answer is 'not sure', taking our part-time course might be the best option.
You can read more on the subject in our blog post: Full-time vs. Part-time: Which Program Is For Me?
How often do you run cohorts and how do I apply?
Our bootcamps run year round, on a rolling basis. Our part-time courses run every 6-12 weeks.
You can see all upcoming start dates when submitting your application!
Do you offer corporate training?
Yes! Many organizations have sent their employees to us to upgrade their technical skills.
Our Intro to Web Development courses are fantastic for people looking to gain a technical knowledge of development that can help when communicating with a dev team, managing development projects, understanding technical limitations, or transitioning into a hybrid development role.
Our Web Development Bootcamps can train someone with zero coding experience, into an agile developer in 12 weeks. This is a great option if you love your company but are looking for a career change, if you are currently a developer but need to learn new technologies, or if you're a founder looking to have more control over your the development of your product.
We can also build custom curriculum for your organization. If you need niche technical or development training for your team, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
