Coding Bootcamp to Career Path

Learning a new skill tends to follow an S curve. Our bootcamp prep course is designed to get you off the ground and through your first inflection point. You'll be able to read and write code using JavaScript, and you'll ready for technical interviews at top immersive programs like App Academy, Hack Reactor, Rithm School, and Learners Guild.


Learning to Code Opens Doors

  • Find new job opportunities at exciting companies
  • Build cool products you actually enjoy working on
  • Earn a high salary

A Bootcamp IS A Major INVESTMENT

  • Bootcamps last 3-9 months and cost $10k - $25k
  • It's a full-time commitment, so you'll forfeit wages while you learn
  • Landing your first coding job often takes 3-6 months after your training

You Should Fully Explore Coding Before you Commit

  • Some people find they love coding
  • Others decide it's not for them
  • Bootcamps can provide a tremendous value, but they are not all created equally

Dev Bootcamp

It was an amazing 1 month class. I came in knowing a little coding, but I feel that this class gave me the confidence and skills that I needed to start applying to bootcamps. With the help of this class I was able to get into Dev Bootcamp in SF. The speakers and coding challenges were extremely valuable, specifically the MVC and API introductions. I feel that this class is an asset to anyone thinking of a career or bootcamp in coding.

Lucky to have discovered First Step Coding’s 4-week Bootcamp Prep. I immediately felt I was in a team environment. The course structure is organized and includes visits by guest speakers from various bootcamps. Andy and Michael complement each other well in teaching style. They are excited to introduce you to coding and are genuinely supportive of you taking this skillset as far as you want to go.

"I was interested in a career change, but I did not have any coding experience. Without giving up my day job, I participated in First Step Coding. The program brought me from a total novice to a confident, amateur developer. I'm now motivated to pursue additional training and a full-time career as a developer."

Valuable 1-month class with 6 hours of classroom time each week. Not only do you learn about programming, but you are introduced to the coding bootcamp process and what it takes to get in and what its like during and afterward. Extremely valuable guest speakers and discussions about coding and becoming a developer. Introduces you how to think like a programmer. I definitely feel so lucky to have been part of his second cohort of students.
