According to a recent survey by boot camp directory and reviews website Course Report, more than twice as many students are expected to graduate from coding boot camps this year (16,056) than in 2014 (6,740).
“People are drawn to them for time- and money-savings,” says Liz Eggelston, cofounder of Course Report. “These programs aren’t cheap, but they take three to six months to complete instead of two to three years for a graduate degree—and cost a fraction of the price.”
And attending coding boot camps appears to pay off for graduates: Three-quarters of respondents to Course Report's survey report finding full-time employment that requires skills they learned in a boot camp. Among those, 63 percent are in salaried positions, and survey respondents cited an average salary growth of $25,000 following boot camp graduation.
