coding bootcamps in seattle

Coding bootcamps are helping increase the supply of tech workers across the world. And according to CourseReport’s 2016 coding bootcamps study, close to 18,000 students have graduated throughout the 91 coding bootcamps found in the US. The center of this growth is in California with 28, 13 of which are in San Francisco.

But as the tech industry expands, coding bootcamps are also seeing a steady rise. States like Washington with 13 bootcamps—12 in Seattle—are also feeling the tech boom. In fact, President Obama included Seattle, along with 20 other communities, in the TechHire program that aims to educate and train people to fill tech jobs.

Coding bootcamps are not only meant to train people as quickly and as comprehensively as they can, but bootcamps also help tech companies find the talent they need, which can be a struggle for cities like Seattle that are a little short on supply of tech talents. Get the comprehensive training you need with these coding bootcamps in Seattle and be the right programmer tech companies are looking for.
