What is a coding bootcamp?

A coding bootcamp is a fast and intensive way to learn to code. Unlike traditional education, bootcamps offer a very hands-on approach to learning. With many hours-per-day of coding and working on projects, you will find yourself job-ready in a period of months rather than years.

There is a ton of information online about coding bootcamps. Before you consider applying, we suggest reading this article about bootcamps.
