Is Coding Bootcamp Worth It?

For many veterans, coding is a natural fit. From one bootcamp to another, Eleven Fifty will help you succeed within and beyond our programs.

While some coders may tell you that you can learn on your own, it’s far more effective to accelerate your learning and build your portfolio with guidance and support from Eleven Fifty’s cohort of instructors and career partners. Our full-time bootcamps help former service members quickly learn about coding languages, full-stack applications, and cybersecurity systems.

A coding background is useful for many careers and will open up several possible career paths for you upon graduation. New grads can work as a junior web developer or try out freelancing for a while to determine what type of programmer you want to be. You can work in virtually any industry from healthcare to finance to entertainment.

One thing to remember is that while coding bootcamps are not accredited, the training will help you get a job in tech. Employers today recognize the value of a bootcamp education, and Eleven Fifty Academy is well respected in the industry.

No need to move to Silicon Valley, New York City, or Seattle. Our online full-time classes now allow students to learn from anywhere, so you can become a coder regardless of your location. So if you’re in Bloomington, Cleveland, Columbus, Fort Wayne, Evansville, or anywhere else in the U.S., you are eligible!

To learn more about your veteran benefits and our bootcamps, talk to an advisor from Eleven Fifty Academy.
