    Learn to Code | Thinkful Portland - How to Choose a Bootcamp

    CENTRL Office Eastside

    ***MUST RSVP ON EVENTBRITE HERE***


    Coding boot camps are short intensive accelerated programs to help you learn the skills, build a portfolio and transition careers like web development and data science. “With over 300 coding boot camps worldwide, you should do your research before choosing which code school will kickstart your career in tech,” says CourseReport

    It can be tough to know which one is right for you. Join us as we answer questions like do I enroll in an immersive or part-time bootcamp? What type of career coaching do I need? How do I make sense of outcome stats and guarantees? How is bootcamp learning better or worse than learning on my own? We will discuss what to consider starting with the question of how boot camps emerged and the personal traits you need to succeed.
