What Are Coding Bootcamps?

Coding bootcamps are an innovative method to learn to develop software and web applications. These “computer bootcamps ” offer a complete syllabus featuring a wide range of computer programming languages like HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, as well as several other skill sets.

A huge advantage compared to traditional university courses is that coding boot camps last 3 to 6 months on average. During this period, you’ll have the chance to immerse yourself fully in the world of programming: theory and practice blend to create a course for developers that truly prepares you for the professional world.

The Origins of Coding Bootcamps

The first coding boot camps started around 2011 in the United States to satisfy the enormous demand for web developers on the job market. The intensive nature of code bootcamps means that lots of people have been able to advance their careers in tech in a short period of time.

Epicode’s course to become a Full-Stack Developer lasts 24 weeks and is taught completely online, allowing you to study wherever you want. Full-Stack Developers possess a vast knowledge encompassing both front-end and back-end, so our intensive course will teach you the basics of the job while allowing you lots of practice. Last but not least, no degree or specific skills are required.

What You’ll Learn and Why Coding Bootcamps Are Better than Online Courses

Online you’ll find endless low-cost programming courses, but it’s not easy to find qualified teachers and tutors who really follow you throughout your training. Coding bootcamps offer real-time lessons with top professionals in the field.

In just a few months, you’ll be able to use your new skills on the job market, where web developers are increasingly in demand. Here are some numbers:

  • 100,000 open positions for programmers;
  • 65,000 developers available.


This means that you could receive over 35,000 job offers to choose from every year (just in Italy).

In Italy, coding bootcamps have become well-established; they are the only type of course that allows you to take live classes (including practical exercises) with teachers who answer your questions in real time, helping you improve every day.

For example, Epicode’s Full-Stack coding bootcamps will help you study and grow as you learn the basics of programming.
