Are you wondering if a computer coding boot camp is right for you? Maybe you’ve seen an incredible success story like this one and you want to know whether you can become a software developer or coder too?
Or perhaps you’re worried that you’re not cut out for a tech job.
Well, the truth is… you can do it!
The biggest misconception people have about computer coding training is that they’re not smart enough or that it won’t work out.
At We Can Code IT, our classes are designed to teach you everything you need to know from the ground up – regardless of your current skill level. And this is one of the best benefits of a computer coding boot camp – you don’t need any programming experience to get started.
Our courses are designed for people of all skill levels – beginner to college graduate. In fact, some college graduates choose to attend boot camp to help refine their current skills and improve their chances of landing their dream job.
Whether you’re interested in breaking into the IT field or you just want to improve your current skillset, computer coding training can help you get there.
Learning any new skill can be challenging. And as with most things in life, good things come to those who persevere. Most IT boot camps are designed to teach you a significant amount of information in a short period of time. While courses typically run 14 weeks long, you’ll be learning a lot during your time in and out of class. In fact, expect to gain many years’ worth of coding knowledge in those few short weeks.
It’s important to remember that hard doesn’t mean impossible. Have you ever heard the phrase “if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything”? It applies to 14-week computer coding courses too. If you’re feeling a little intimidated – that’s normal! What matters most is that you come in prepared and ready to learn. If you work hard, you’ll be able to pass boot camp with flying colors and be ready to take on a high-paying IT job upon completion.
And remember, you’ll have plenty of help and support along the way.
As far as how much work is needed, students can expect a minimum of 20 hours of homework per week, in addition to class time.
If you want to learn more about what coding, you may want to consider attending one of our free coding events in Cleveland or Columbus.
“After the We Can Code IT on-site training at University Hospitals, we embraced Agile software development methodology with tremendous success. On a project that was not going well, we were able to develop 1-week iterations where we did a mini-planning session on Monday, committed to stories for the week and then completely tested them by the end of the week. Our teams have really enjoyed moving to a more structured Agile environment with much more collaboration.”
It takes 6 to 9 months to bring a new developer up to speed. In IT, recruiting top talent is super competitive. So it makes sense to train your internal talent pool, right? A great idea, but most companies find cross-training employees is time-consuming and demands training expertise they don’t always have. We can help you with this process by applying our assessment tools. These will help you find out which employees would be best for cross-training as well as which canidates are most adept to join your company.
When growth or turnover hits your IT team, research shows it costs a business about 20% of an employee’s salary to hire and train new talent. If a developer is paid in the neighborhood of $80–$120K —the hiring and training process costs your business up to $24K.*
