Teaching: WebDev Camp is obviously very different from university teaching methods. Firstly, we worked straight away on a 'real' solution. There was no 'faffing about'. Secondly, the feedback loop is much quicker as Torsten is always present to answer question when we are too stuck. At the same time, there is enough room to think for yourself and learn by yourself - which is a good skill to have. You also get to develop a lot of your people skills as you work and live together throughout the duration of the course.
Setting: the camp is in the middle of the woods, with many lakes near by. It is absolutely magical. The camp's large garden is also something out of a fairytale. It even has a little waterfall.

Here, in the midst of nature, if you’re feeling stuck, you can just go for a walk and come back to coding feeling refreshed.

I would say that this program teaches you not only about coding, but how to interact with people who might be...Read more
Can a bootcamp really be relaxing and non-competitive as well as being intensive and equipping you with the skills required in a real tech job? Yes. WebDev.Camp manages to do all of this as well as providing a safe and supportive environment in which to learn about code. When I started to teach myself code, the journey to becoming a junior developer seemed impossibly long and hard. Graduating from Web Dev Camp, I feel as though I have the tools and understanding I need to go on to achieve this goal and I am amazed at how far I have come.
Living on site gives you the opportunity to really focus on your personal development and learning, without the problems of everyday life interfering or distracting you. I think that is one of the reasons that the Web Dev Camp course accomplishes s...Read more
