At its Worldwide Developer Conference next week, Apple shared a success story that a lot of people didn’t know about. About one year ago, Apple released Swift, a new programming language promised to make it easier to build iPhone and Mac apps than ever before. Developers cheered from the stands.
Due to a 20% increase in demand for developers, bootcamps for coding have started popping up to help fill the employment openings. What exactly is a coding bootcamp? It’s an accelerated learning program featuring skills such as full-stack web development, data science, digital marking, and UX/UI design. Bootcamps last an average of 10 weeks, often covering either mobile or web coding, and are located in several major cities across the United States. The end result varies person to person, from junior developer, developer, apprenticeship, instructor positions, and freelance. There are many options available, individuals learn how to choose the right path to take and how to prepare themselves for the experience including the cost.
