[Editor's Note: Thank you to Victoria Meng, who wrote the original version of this article. In the latest edit, we have updated the information for 30 bootcamps and added over 30 more!]

In our last installment, we highlighted the most selective coding bootcamps. To recap, coding bootcamps are designed to train students for a full-time job as an entry-level developer by providing an intensive immersive learning program in an 8 to 12 week period (sometimes longer). The goal of these camps are to train you with the skills that employers are demanding without wasting any time. The price tag on these programs are high, ranging from $5-36K! However, a good bootcamp will land you a job with a $60K starting salary (or more), so the ROI makes the investment worthwhile. In this article, we expand on the original list and have separated programs into two kinds of bootcamps: the bootcamps that provide you with job placement or assistance, and everything else. At minimum, a good coding bootcamp should throw an end-of-term job-fair and offer a partial-tuition refund to students hired through their employer-network.

If you plan to go to coding bootcamp, get prepared to eat, sleep, and breathe code!

Anyone Can Learn To Code – ChicagoAnyoneCanLearnToCode_Logo

The majority of bootcamps require students to quit their job and devote weeks of their lives to nothing but the bootcamp. Not Anyone Can Learn to Code. Here classes are held at night and on the weekend allowing people with jobs and responsibilities an opportunity to reach their goals. Lectures aren’t skimmed over in class, instead their head teacher provides a mix of high caliber instruction, open discussion and hands on experience. Through their guidance you will build a strong portfolio that will demonstrate to future employers that you are in-tune with the technologies and standards needed to succeed in a development career.

Start Preparing Now

If you are prepared to invest heavily in your coding education and want to be a workforce-ready programmer in as little time as possible, then coding bootcamp is the option for you. However, if have financial constraints or simply want to get started right away, coding sites like Treehouse can help you learn to program on your own. In fact, they may be a great stepping stone and can give you an edge over your competition when applying to selective bootcamp programs where prior experience is required. An online programming course subscription is considerably less expensive than a bootcamp and you can learn at your own pace. If a bootcamp doesn’t seem like the right choice for you then online learning sites like Treehouse are a great alternative.
