Course Report polled every full-time, in-person US and Canadian bootcamp with courses in web and mobile development, gathering statistics on 2015 graduates and projected 2016 graduation rates. They had staggering response rate, talking to an impressive 96.7% of all bootcamp schools.
By the end of this year, the coding bootcamp market is expected to grow from 10,333 to roughly 18,000 bootcamp graduates. Comparatively, four year colleges will graduate 61,408 CS graduates this year. It is becoming clear that for those interested in getting into development, a CS degree is not the only path to becoming a full-time coder. Coding bootcamps are getting more and more popular as an education path.
There are now 91 coding bootcamps to choose from. As the number of coding bootcamps increases, it can be more challenging to determine which one is the right fit for you. A lot has been written on this topic, so we won’t belabor the point here. However, it is more important than ever that you do your research, figure out your goals for your coding bootcamp experience and make sure the one you choose aligns with those goals.
