Richard Stallman, software freedom fighter

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.
