Coding bootcamps offer a lot of things. They offer an opportunity to learn the skills you need to launch a career at a relatively affordable and fast pace.
What’s required of you is to find the right bootcamp. Find a place that teaches in a way that fits your learning style, meets your price point and schedule, and focuses on the languages and skills that align with your career ambitions. If you do your research and find the right place for you, then attending the right bootcamp is definitely the right choice.
In sum, if your goal is to learn software engineering skills and to start a coding career, then the answer is an unequivocal ‘yes’ — good bootcamps are worth it.
Learn more about whether coding bootcamps are worth it for you.
In many ways, coding bootcamps definitely do work, and there’s a lot of proof behind that statement.
But it’s better to first ask yourself, “What do I want to get out of attending a coding bootcamp?” Asking yourself what your goals and ambitions are is how you’ll know if a bootcamp would work for you.
Some people want to just become acquainted with code, which is great, but a full-time bootcamp might not be the best route if you’re looking for a basic understanding of coding.
If your goal is to learn to become a software engineer, then yes, coding bootcamps do work.
While they vary with each course and each school, online coding bootcamps are short-term and often rigorous training programs to help students learn the programming languages and development skills they need to become professional software engineers.
We don’t require you to have prior coding experience to apply for the Software Engineering program. Our admissions requirements are being at least 18 years old, having a high school diploma or a GED, having a native or highly proficient fluency in English, and completing the admissions process.
The first step is to fill out a written application. Once submitted, you should hear back from our Admissions team within 2 business days regarding the next step. If your application is chosen to move forward, you will be invited to schedule a video call with a member of the admissions team to better understand your learning needs, career goals, and whether the program is the right fit for you. After this point, students receive an admissions decision within a few business days. For some programs, students must complete a technical interview when applying.
