    Beginner Web Development Bootcamp Return on Investment (ROI)

    Throughout bootcamp, you’ll program alongside a partner. Together, you’ll assume defined roles to solve programming challenges and double-check each other’s work.

    In addition, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for jobs like web developer, software developer, and software engineer is expected to increase by 10%-28% over the next decade. That’s at least twice as much as the average 10-year growth for all occupations, which stands at 5%—making now an excellent time to launch a career in the field.


    Beginner Coding Myths and Realities

    Man learning remotely
    MythReality
    You need a computer science degree to launch a career as a software engineer.

    Some employers still require a 4-year degree (at least on paper), but many do not—and that number is expected to rise alongside increased access to specialized tech training programs. View our impressive bootcamp outcomes to learn more about employment rates for Fullstack Academy web development graduates.
    Self-teaching is the only way to learn how to code.

    Self-teaching is an integral part of the process, which is why it’s built into our active learning approach to beginner coding. However, bootcamp programs offer collaboration, technical and career support, and real-world engineering tools in addition to self-learning.

    Essentially, we teach students how to learn coding, so they can build upon that skill throughout their career. Explore the curriculum here.

    Coding bootcamps only prepare you for a career in web development.


    While the majority of our students are aspiring software engineers, there are numerous applications for coding skills within the tech industry and beyond.

    Browse our coding careers blog post to get an idea of the different directions coding skills can take your career.

    Coding careers and coding skills are no longer in-demand in the job market.
    According to multiple reputable sources including the Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for software engineers and other professional coding jobs is expected to increase by 10%-28% over the next decade. That’s at least twice as much as the average 10-year growth for all occupations, which stands at 5%.
    The tech industry is always changing, so tech jobs offer little job security.
    Big Tech layoffs come and go; they dominate headlines, but the demand for skilled talent persists regardless.

    Coding jobs are also not limited to the tech sector, because companies of all sizes and industries increasingly employ their own, in-house software engineers. Discover our student stories to learn more about where past graduates have been hired.

    A word of advice to older prospective students like myself. You may be frustrated where you are right now but afraid to make the leap, to quit your job, to spend your savings on a bootcamp, to take three months to learn, to work 80 hours a week. I promise it’s worth it.
