If you’re someone interested in attending a coding bootcamp, but you don’t have the ability to attend full time, you may want to consider attending a part-time program instead.
Here are 6 benefits of enrolling in a part-time online coding bootcamp:
1. You don’t have to quit your job
One of the biggest roadblocks to attending a full-time, immersive bootcamp is having to give up your job to attend. For many people, this simply isn’t a viable option – whether they’re taking care of their families or can’t afford to give up a steady income for an extended period of time. Choosing a part-time coding bootcamp allows you to uphold your responsibilities while learning to code.
2. You can attend from anywhere in the world
With so many coding bootcamps now available online, you can attend from wherever you are, so long as you have a stable internet connection. In the past, you had to live in or near a big city to access most bootcamps. Now, you can live anywhere, and even change locations during your program if desired or needed.
3. There’s a structured learning environment
Many people who attempt to teach themselves coding give up or taper off after just a few weeks. If you’re someone that learns best in a structured learning environment, but there are no classes near you, an online coding bootcamp is a great solution. You’ll get live lectures, pair programming with classmates, group project time, and more, all in an classroom environment.
4. You learn to collaborate with others
Teamwork is an important skill for any budding engineer to develop. While coding itself can be a solitary activity, most developers work with others on a daily basis to develop and build software. Though you can learn to code on your own, the group environment of a coding bootcamp teaches you to work with others, which is crucial to your career. Pair programming is a hallmark of Hack Reactor, and is an important part of our online bootcamps.
5. You have individual access to our support team
Two of the biggest contributors to student success are strong mentorship and strong community — things you can’t get when learning on your own. You’ll have access to instructors, cohort leads, career service managers, teaching assistants, and others, all who have a vested interest in your success. This kind of access is imperative to your growth as a developer.
6. You have a strong peer community
Briefly mentioned above, having a strong community is a huge advantage of attending any coding bootcamp. Throughout the program, this sense of community is cultivated through group work, breakout activities, pair programming, social events, and more. Having the support of peers is crucial – not just for learning to code, but also throughout the job search process after the bootcamp ends.
