coding bootcamps in los angeles

California is the state with the highest number of bootcamps in the US, according to the 2016 Coding Bootcamp study by CourseReport and a good chunk of those coding bootcamps are in Los Angeles.

It’s easy to overlook Los Angeles as a major tech city in the state, as Silicon Valley is the more recognized tech hub in the region (and in the country), but that doesn’t mean that LA is short on opportunities for learning and working in tech. If you’re keen on making a career as a programmer within the city and you think that learning through immersive training is right for you, you should look into these coding bootcamps in Los Angeles (listed alphabetically for your convenience) and see if any of these fit your criteria.

There is obviously a demand for coding bootcamps, and universities like UCLA have also jumped in on this growing tech trend. For 24 weeks, students will learn full-stack web development where they will receive an award of completion from UCLA Extension at the end of the program.

A career-based decision is always tricky, whether it’s for career advancement or you want to get into an industry you have no prior experience of. What coding bootcamps offer are a chance for programming newbies to get the training they need and make them hirable for both big and small companies. In fact, we recently talked to Haseed, where he went from attending a coding bootcamp to negotiating a $250,000 compensation package at Airbnb.

While deciding which coding bootcamp is right for you, you also have to look into other factors such as your budget, schedule, interests, and commitment. First you have to understand your own preferences, perhaps online coding course options will work for you better? Are there things these bootcamps are not telling me that I need to know? And once you’re in, do you really know how to survive an immersive coding bootcamp?

Picking the right school is one thing, but understanding your preferences will only work to improve your chances of getting a job as a bootcamp graduate. Find one that will not only be beneficial to your career, but something that will contribute to your overall growth as well.
