FAQ

+ What is a web development bootcamp?

Web development bootcamps are accelerated and intensive learning programs at one-tenth the cost and time of traditional four-year degree programs. When learning to program in most four-year degree programs, studying exciting and current technologies is often sacrificed in favor of the "beginner-friendly" classes.

With a web development bootcamp, the course is designed for the motivated beginner, yet it thoroughly covers the most exciting and relevant topics with knowledgeable, working instructors of the industry.

Courses are structured and presented in a unique and immersive way, unlike many online courses that consist of simple "watch as I code" videos. These courses incorporate the knowledge and teaching styles of real trainers and working developers to make the environment more effective and engaging.

+ Is Orange County a good place to learn coding?

Boasting a population greater than 21 states in the union, Orange County is home to many Fortune 500 companies, international company headquarters, restaurants, food chains, and notable tech startups and staples.

An innovative market in the areas of software, cybersecurity, engineering, medical devices, and gaming, Orange County draws talent from the entire Southern California metropolitan area.

+ What does the web development industry outlook look like?

The web development industry is growing faster than any other computer industry in the nation, and the forecast for continued growth is astonishing. Now is the time to get into the industry and the best way to start a career in web development is to enroll in a coding bootcamp.

Led by tech leaders such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter, the hiring landscape in web development is being driven by the need for innovative web applications and technologies.

A healthy start-up industry and the expansion of emerging fields including e-commerce, mobile, social media, big data, and cybersecurity, are also fueling growth. In particular, notes Robert Half Technology, hospitality and financial services are expected to be hot sectors for web developers as both industries need to provide reliable, secure online services to clients.

Web development bootcamps are in a prime position to capitalize on this high demand for capable web developers since traditional learning systems are not producing fast enough.

+ Web developer trade school vs. coding bootcamp

The education model and philosophy of the last couple of decades has been a higher degree achieved will translate into greater income potential. In some fields, this is still true, but in web development and tech industries, there is a change in progress. Most traditional four-year degree programs don't offer a specific degree for web development, and the cost buries the learner in debt while taking years of earning potential away.

Web developer trade schools are vocational colleges that offer associate degrees that take as little as six months to two years for students to complete. Offer hands-on training for specific, in-demand professions, they also cost an average of $33,000 per year, far less than a four-year college, but far more than a web development bootcamp.

Coding Bootcamps are an even faster road to employment, more targeted and intensive, lasting about four months, and costing a fraction of that of a web developer trade school. They offer training for students to become front-end developers, back-end developers, full-stack developers, e-commerce specialists, with competitive developer salaries. In many cases, they take someone with very little or no background in these skills and gets them job-ready by the completing of the program.

Web developer bootcamps have grown explosively, soaring to nearly 18,000 graduates as of 2016, up from a little more than 2,000 three years earlier. This explosion makes sense since web development jobs are set to grow 27% through 2024, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, faster than most other computer-related jobs. Given the lower cost to attend, students can finance their coding bootcamps through credit cards, bootcamp loans, or personal loans.

+ Is a coding bootcamp right for me?

Several factors are important to take into consideration in making the right decision for education and an eventual career as a developer. First, determine that the program is of quality and is going to provide the right educational experience, and then the cost should be taken into consideration as well. Here are few things to consider in evaluating the quality of any particular program.

  • 1. How long has the coding bootcamp been operating? Longevity speaks to the overall success of the program. A well-honed curriculum takes time to perfect, therefore having instructors that have been teaching for a significant period is critically important.
  • 2. Does the web development bootcamp take your money seriously? The pace of the bootcamp can be compromised if everyone is not more or less equally prepared. It is simply not right to take tuition from a student that is not ready to get the most out of the instruction and be ready to compete for jobs after the program.
  • 3. What is the philosophy of teaching? Will the coding bootcamp thoroughly teach the right technologies or go a mile-wide and only inch deep to simply stuff a resume?
  • 4. What is the experience of the instructors? Just like with anything, it takes time to become good at teaching software engineering principles to those that are new to the industry.
  • 5. What is the environment like? Students learn best in an open and supportive environment. Ask current students & staff to describe the environment.
  • 6. Is the web development bootcamp open and transparent? Is the program open to questions and dialogue about the program and the type of commitment it will take to succeed?
  • 7. Who put the curriculum together and how is it taught? Have the school explain how they have developed the curriculum and how they implement it.
  • 8. Does the program offer deep discounts on every occasion? It is not an absolute that discounts and scholarships can be a good thing with the right program, but maybe an indicator of a program that is simply looking to fill seats.
  • Does the bootcamp encourage you to read reviews and talk with current students? We can’t express enough the importance of reading reviews from students who are enrolled or have completed the coding bootcamp. There is no better way to fully understand the culture and experience than talking to someone who has done it.
