So you’re stuck at home as the majority of the rest of us. Do you like your job? Have you found yourself venturing over to Indeed, Zip Recruiter or even Craigslist to search through the available jobs in your area? Have you figured out that you want to change careers completely? If so, are you able to go back financially? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions and no to the last one, let me let you in on a little secret.

Choose to go to a coding bootcamp.

Now, why in the world would I say that? Well, if you are choosing to go into a new career, the world of technology is booming right now and always changing for the better. Even though several businesses are forced to layoff during this difficult time, there are many companies that are hiring across many areas. What’s even better for some of these positions is that they offer remote work so you wouldn’t have to worry about going into an office!

Coding bootcamps provide knowledge and a good foundation to get you going into the world of full-stack development. This would mean that you are able to write and maintain code for websites and different programs. You know that game on your phone that you like to play? It involves coding….there is someone on the other end of that game that wrote what it is supposed to do with code.

These courses will teach problem-solving skills and also how to work as a team. You are basically learning how to communicate in another language with others (ie: writing code that is legible to anyone that follows behind you). All courses are hands-on in one way or another and you will complete a project that shows what you know which is presented at the end of your time.

Here at Savvy Coders, our course lasts a total of 12 weeks. During that time, you are learning JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, basic Markdown, how to interact with DOM, Git & Github, Agile, Firebase, UI/UX, Node/Express, MongoDB and Heroku. You hit the ground running with an introduction to the world of technology and careers in it and how to write your resume for the field and even how to navigate around LinkedIn. You’ll complete a capstone project that you will be able to present possible employers on what we call “Demo Day”. Our instructors work in the tech field in different areas and the students are provided with a wealth of knowledge and resources to pull from. We are with the students from start to beyond finished to help guide them and watch them succeed.

Another good thing about Savvy Coders is that you are only in class Monday through Thursday from 6:30 – 9:30pm….that’s it! Currently, the classes are being held via Zoom so you are able to take the course from the comfort of your home.

So if you have found yourself between a rock and a hard place….ready for a change, then we have the answer for you! Let us help you discover your coding potential!

You can check out Demo Day videos and our #savvystories here.

We hope to see you soon! Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions! Our next course starts on August 24th!
