In the last decade, coding bootcamps have become a top option in the higher education discussion. Specifically, for those wanting to get the skills they need in order to launch a career as a developer in the thriving technology industry without having to go the traditional college route racking up potential large student debt and dedicating years to the learning process. With online code bootcamp programs, hopeful students are able to come in with limited previous coding knowledge and in as short as 10 weeks graduate prepared to walk into a full-time Software or Web Developer role. Because this formula has shown time and time again that it works for graduates landing careers in code, the rise of coding bootcamp options have grown significantly. According to a 2020 Course Report study, the number of developer bootcamps have grown 10x since 2013. With the growth in the industry, someone wanting to pursue an education through a coding bootcamp has plenty of options to pick from. With so many options to pick from, we wanted to highlight how not all coding bootcamps are the same. Picking the correct one to enroll can be a large decision for you that can literally change the entire course of your future. That’s why we wanted to put the spotlight on devCodeCamp. From our very first encounter leading up to the road after graduation and into a job role, devCodeCamp’s number one goal is your long-term success. Everything we do, we do for you. In this blog post, we will discuss some of those devCodeCamp differences and walk you through how our coding bootcamp is built for your success.
What does devCodeCamp teach?
We have two options in bootcamps, depending on which one best suites you: The Full Stack Development Flex and Computer Science Engineer. Every bootcamp option we offer is uniquely designed in-house from the ground up by our team. Both courses are created with the same end goal of launching a career in code, but crafted differently to give you the best option for your personal journey through the course.
Full Stack Development Flex

These coding bootcamps are designed with you in mind from day one introductions to after graduation when you get the option to use our Career Services team (more on that soon). Both bootcamp options we have available to you are 100% virtual so you are able to learn in the comfort of your own home. Both courses also offer key technologies such as DevOps, where you are able to obtain the qualifications to begin your career as a developer higher up right off the bat with that knowledge. Everything we teach and do during our coding bootcamp is intentional so you can have the most success as a professional developer quicker.
The devCodeCamp Instructor Support System
One of the largest factors in separating devCodeCamp from your typical online coding bootcamp options is the team of instructors you will have during your time in our classes. If you are in our self-paced course or live full-time class, you will be interacting with a handful of our instructor team very regularly. All with friendly, approachable, and professional attitudes ready to be your guiding light as you pick up the skills along your way towards a career as a developer. They all share a passion for coding which shows time and time again as they excitedly navigate the lesson modules you will be learning.
We understand the importance of having someone you can depend on when tackling multiple new concepts during the bootcamp. That’s why our support system between the instructor team and all students stays glued together to help you reach your highest level of success possible. We do that through offering 1:1 mentoring sessions with instructors, availability to answer your questions daily, provide guidance and feedback, plus more. When you are a devCodeCamp student, you have our commitment to give you the attention, feedback, and skills you need in order to achieve greatness.

Where Do devCodeCamp graduates work?
At the start of this blog post, we mentioned how in the last decade coding bootcamps have become a part of the higher education discussion more and more. Mostly, because as more graduates started to exit bootcamp courses and land jobs in the tech world, it proved that the teaching formula was a success. At devCodeCamp, we get the honor of seeing that firsthand every month as our online coding bootcamp graduates launch careers as Software and Web Developers. Our Alumni is full of success stories that all started with someone like you wanting to change their lives, launch a career, and rebrand themselves as developers. Now you are able to see devCodeCamp graduates working at top companies such as Facebook, Amazon, HubSpot, IBM, JP Morgan Chase, Rocket Mortgage, plus dozens more. All because the hopeful students could take advantage of what devCodeCamp’s bootcamp has set in place to maximize success as a working developer.
