After 8 years of teaching and 8,000+ graduates, we can tell you the biggest problem in tech ed is that most bootcamps require incoming students to have a significant background in coding to join. Not only does this let bootcamps off the hook in terms making an effective curriculum, it simply DOESN’T work.
It’s been proven over and over that the most reliable predictors of success in coding bootcamps are traits like dedication, resilience, and curiosity. That’s why our application process looks for these characteristics in new students, and we don’t require anyone to come into bootcamp with 100+ hours of coding experience under their belts.
We are numbers people at Coding Dojo, and from 1,000s of hours in researching learning science, the labor force, and pedagogy, we’ve crafted a curriculum that builds a solid programming foundation through a three stack approach.
Unlike many bootcamps that specialize in 1 stack in order to maximize class size and limit the learning difficulty, Coding Dojo’s 3-stack curriculum provides graduates with a complete skill set and, more importantly, the ability to easily learn new tech and programming languages they will be required to learn throughout their careers. Plain and simple: Our curriculum is designed to make this the first AND last bootcamp you ever attend.
There’s a reason the world’s most successful people have mentors, advisors and other people they trust around them: Every step up in your career ladder requires help, not just the first.
That’s why when a student makes the choice to change their careers to software development, we take that as a long-term commitment on our end as well -- guaranteeing a lifetime of support from our world-class career services team.
Plain and simple: If you have the same job, with the same pay and same perks when you left bootcamp as you do 2 years down the road, you didn’t go to Coding Dojo.
