At Coding Dojo, we transform the careers of thousands of individuals by teaching them how to be full-stack developers through our award-winning bootcamp, and by immersing them in a dynamic and supportive tech community.
The benefits to our students go well beyond the bootcamp. We stay on top of the tech industry by sourcing jobs for our graduates, as well as working with major companies to form apprenticeships. We host sponsored hackathons, teach workshops on cutting-edge topics like Blockchain, and host networking events and Tech Talks with accomplished speakers.
Each of our 10 campuses is a little different: in San Jose our graduates land positions at Facebook and Apple, in Tulsa we’re partnered with the George Kaiser Family Foundation, in Orange County we are in the heart of Southern California’s tech industry, in Seattle our graduates are recruited for coveted jobs at companies like Microsoft, Amazon, and T-Mobile.
In Boise, Coding Dojo attended Boise Startup Week 2018 to teach two workshops, both extremely forward-looking and relevant topics in the tech world. One of the workshops, given by our Captain and Lead Instructor at the Seattle Dojo was titled, 'Creating Digital Certificates Using Blockchain'. It focused on "how Coding Dojo is using blockchain tech in nontraditional and innovative ways," explains An.
By partnering with MIT and their project called BlockCerts, Coding Dojo now issues decentralized, verifiable graduation certificates on the BitCoin blockchain. This allows our students to possess a “true, and uncorrupted” certificate of completion in our course, and insights on how to use blockchain in their own work.
In Los Angeles, Coding Dojo has established a relationship with local start-up TensorIoT, a company that works with IoT and AI platforms to unleash the possibilities and power of smart technologies in the average consumer’s day-to-day life. TensorIoT helps major companies such as Amazon Web Services or Google build IoT and AI platforms by “creating solutions to simplify the way enterprises incorporate edge devices and their data into their day- to- day operations” explains their website.
Recently Coding Dojo hosted a panel with TensorIoT, where students were able to discuss their technology with company representatives. In Dec. 2018, Coding Dojo and TensorIoT will host a hackathon where students will work with Alexa’s API to create fun and interesting ways to utilize her smart capabilities, like notifying you to move your car and avoid getting a parking ticket.
A little down the road, at the latest Coding Dojo campus in Orange County, our relationship will get even closer as the representatives won’t have to beat traffic to reach us.
In Chicago, Coding Dojo just partnered with the City of Chicago and Chicago Codes to provide free tuition to lesser served communities on the south side, enabling local, untapped tech talent to fill out Chicago’s growing demand for computer programmers and software developers.
Thanks to the generous support from The Rockefeller Foundation, Facebook, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and Microsoft, a grant will allow hundreds of students who otherwise would not be able to afford a full stack education to attend the Coding Dojo bootcamp course.
We can’t wait to help these students achieve their dreams and are excited about this new opportunity.
That was just six of our campuses. There is much more to discover in our three other campuses in Dallas, Tyson’s Corner Virginia, Berkeley, and Online.
Demand for tech talent is booming across the country, and Coding Dojo is all about the students' end goals—regardless of where they are. On the West Coast, graduates of our Berkeley campus enter a job market with developer salaries that can exceed $95,000. On the East Coast, our campus in Tyson's Corner, Virginia is within a stone's throw of the proposed new Amazon HQ. In the South, students at our Dallas-Fort Worth campus will graduate into a market with 28,000 open developer jobs.
And we can't forget our online bootcamp, named one of SwitchUp’s best online bootcamps for 2019. Our course teaches two or three full stacks in a flexible, 20-week format. We email students job leads every Monday, and provide them with career advice, guidance, and help with the job hunting process while they learn front-end, back-end, and databases
