Boot Camp Checklist: What You Need (And What You Don't)

With the next session of our Web Developer Boot Camp coming up soon, we thought it would be helpful to provide a checklist of everything you need to succeed! We'll also cover a few of the things you don't need so you're all set for your first day.

Here's what you'll need:

1. A high school diploma

That's what is so incredible about becoming a Web Developer; it doesn't require any college! None. Just a high school diploma and this boot camp on your resume will be enough to signal to prospective employers that you have what it takes to fill their Web Developer position.

2. Time in your schedule

This class is held 4 hours per day, Monday-Thursday. Attending class is vital, so before signing up it is important to make sure you have the availability in your schedule. Fortunately, class is held from 5:00pm-9:00pm, making it possible to maintain your full-time job.

3. A willingness to collaborate

We purposely keep our class sizes small to ensure that each individual gets the attention he or she needs. Our small class size also means that you will become very close with your fellow boot campers, often working on projects and problem-solving together. This collaboration will help you develop bigger and better ideas and make the learning process a whole lot smoother. So, be open to it! We guarantee it'll make your boot camp experience much more enjoyable!

4. A desire to learn

We're not going to lie, this boot camp is not easy. But, is it doable? Absolutely. A positive attitude and a strong desire to learn will be more than enough to get you through this program. Which leads us perfectly into what you don't need...

Here's what you won't need:

1. Coding experience

You don't need ANY experience in coding, web development, or even the technology industry, for that matter. All you need is that desire to learn (and a basic understanding of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, etc.). So, don't overlook this opportunity simply because you don't have any experience in the field. Our participants come from all different backgrounds and all are able to succeed.

2. A laptop

Laptops are provided for participants to complete their coursework, so you don't have to worry about the hassle of buying the right computer, software, etc. We have it all ready to go for you.

3. To pay an arm and a leg

According to CourseReport, a website that provides information about boot camps like ours, the average tuition of a coding boot camp in the United States is $11,063. That's more than an entire year's tuition at any one of Arizona's three major universities! Our tuition costs fall far below the average, at just $3,975! Plus, payment plans and employee sponsorships make paying for the program even easier.

4. To worry about getting hands-on experience

This course is all about hands-on learning. Once you learn a concept, you will be able to practice it with either an individual or group project. By the time you're done, you'll have an impressive portfolio to show your current or future employers.
