Training Programs That Put Programmers Back On The Coding Pack
Dan Levenson October 18, 2022
Many resources are available if you’re looking for a way to get back into coding. Below is a list of some of the most popular options for getting back into coding and how they stack up against each other.
Some options exist if you want to get back in the coding pack but don’t want to spend thousands of dollars.
Coding boot camps are intensive programs that can get you up to speed in a short amount of time. Bootcamp programs typically last 12-16 weeks and often run full-time because they’re designed for people who have been out of work for some time and need a quick way to earn money while they learn new skills.
Bootcamp costs vary widely depending on where you go and which specific program they offer (for example, $10k vs $15k). Some places offer scholarships or grants with tuition costs; others may require payment upfront before class starts, so this isn’t an option if your finances aren’t flexible enough!
Online training programs
Online training programs are a great option for those who are time-poor. They’re also an excellent choice when you want to learn the basics and move on to more advanced concepts.
Online training programs can be used in conjunction with any number of other tools, including:
- Regular online courses (like Lynda) that teach you specific skills relevant to your job or career path
- Open source frameworks that allow you to use code examples from GitHub repositories
What about college?
College may be a good option if you want to learn how to code, but it’s not right for everyone. While there are many different types of colleges, they all have their own rules and requirements. College can also be expensive—even if your family has some money saved, it won’t last forever.
Mentorship programs are a great way to get back into coding. The idea is that you will be paired with an experienced developer who will help you learn the basics of programming and teach you how to break down tasks into manageable chunks. Mentors can also offer advice on how to structure your projects and how best to handle various situations that arise during development.
Mentoring programs are relatively inexpensive compared with other options; they cost between $100 and $200 per month (not including travel expenses), but they can be worth it if:
- You have no experience developing software or don’t know where else in the world there might be mentors willing to mentor
- Your ability level isn’t high enough yet for more structured programs
