When you learn more stacks in 14 weeks than you would in any other coding bootcamp, you emerge a more versatile, self-sufficient, highly sought after developer.
Most coding bootcamps only teach a single language, greatly restricting graduates’ skills and appeal in the job market.
Our dynamic curriculum was first developed in 2008 as an internal training program for small software engineering teams–the first in the industry. Ever since, we've constantly refined the curriculum and have trained thousands of students to either become developers or refine their skill sets. Today, we provide students with a veteran curriculum, that is proven to work as the most effective approach to training both experienced developers and students new to coding.
Many coding bootcamps are still in the process of designing their curriculums instead of refining it, and even rely on textbooks as the foundation of their learning materials, which are available at many bookstores. This can lead to poorly planned day-to-day classes that are inconsistent and offer an ineffective learning experience.
We work with you to identify your strengths and provide a wide range of career services that not only land you a job, but also put you on a path towards your desired career.
Many competitors guarantee to find you a job after the bootcamp. Although job placement is beneficial, it’s no substitute for opening doors along your career path.
We proudly train students from all walks of life, and that's because anyone with the necessary drive should have an equal opportunity to start a career in technology. We're invested in your success just as much as you are, and our school philosophy is firmly against kicking out students for struggling.
Many coding bootcamps have an enrollment prerequisite for months or even years of experience, and it's well-known in the industry that students who fall behind in these bootcamps are at serious risk of expulsion.
A full stack, also known as a software stack or bundle, is a set of software components required to create a complete web application—from the front-end client-side languages to the back-end, consisting of web servers, back-end languages/frameworks, and databases. A full-stack developer is someone with familiarity in each layer of the stack, if not mastery in many.
With a solid understanding of three full stacks, Coding Dojo graduates are well-rounded and fundamentally sound developers boasting a wide range of skills. Whereas some developers are restricted to front- or back-end development, our students understand all layers of software and can create an entire application independently.Meet our Alumni
Technology is constantly adapting and changing. What’s hot today could be out the window tomorrow. Having three full stacks under your belt affords you a multidimensional view of web software development—allowing you to easily build on your foundation and quickly understand and learn new languages.
Learning three full stacks allows you to discover the tools and your specific strengths within a short period—a process that can take even the most talented programmers months, if not years, to discover on their own.See what students build
Coding Dojo’s founder, Michael Choi, served as partner and CEO of several successful startups including a real estate lead-gen company called Zurple. It was a high-growth startup and Michael was struggling to find qualified developers so he created a training program of his own. Not only did he believe this to be more pragmatic and efficient, but Michael also loved to teach.
After continuous refinement within several growing startups, Michael decided to roll out his developer curriculum to the public. Before this official release, the curriculum was already three years old, tested against 2000+ users, and proven to be an effective learning framework.
At the start of 2012, Michael held Coding Dojo’s first “coding bootcamp”, which was a term less common at this time, in Mountain View, CA–the heart of Silicon Valley. The first bootcamp covered two full stacks in 9-weeks: LAMP and Ruby on Rails. Over time, Michael and his team continued to refine the course material, and within months, this former internal program turned from a 9-week course to a 14-week programming bootcamp.
Today, Coding Dojo is the first school in the world to teach three full stacks of software development in 14 weeks: an ability only acquirable through years of refinement and only enabled by a staff of seasoned web developers through decades of programming experience. Our commitment to quality has produced a polished curriculum and well-rounded course structure, which we continue to improve with every new cohort. Given the rapid growth of technology, we believe that our school must act likewise: to be adaptive, versatile, and most of all highly relevant.
