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, ready for technical interviews at top immersive programs, and have even launched your own website!


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

WE CAN HELP YOU TAKE THE FIRST STEP

  • Become code literate in just 4 weeks
  • Classes are during evenings, so you don't have to quit your day job
  • We'll help you select and apply to the bootcamp that makes the most sense for you

We Do Things Differently.

Our classes are capped at just 12 students, and we maintain a 5:1 or better ratio of students to teachers. Hands-on pair programming exercises make up the bulk of class time. Our students love the format, teachers, and experience so much that we're comfortable offering a complete guarantee you will too.


Accepted at Hack Reactor
Hack Reactor accepts only 3% of all applicants, but Jake was prepared.

Designed for those with zero experience in computer programming— over the course of the 4 weeks FSC provides a clear, organized, and straightforward introduction on the basics.

But it doesn’t stop there. FSC is unique as an introductory course in its immersive and networking-based class model. With FSC you dive in from day one— working both with peers and teachers while getting the chance to tour and network with people at several bootcamps (Dev Bootcamp, General Assembly, App Academy, to name a few).

If you’re looking at getting involved in coding, I promise you, this course might be one of the best decisions you can make!

Accepted at Dev Bootcamp
Learners Guild accepts < 4% of all applicants, but Muhammad aced the challenges.

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 both Learners Guild and Dev Bootcamp. 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.

Accepted at General Assembly
Ibukun went on to study data analytics in a special GA program in Los Angeles.

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."
