Should I Enroll In A Dev Bootcamp Over the Holidays?


A prospective student recently asked me “Should I enroll in a dev bootcamp over the holidays?” As we head into winter, people start thinking about traveling home for Thanksgiving and Christmas, spending time with loved ones, or perhaps getting away and finding someplace warm.  At the same time, we’re ambitious folks who want to invest in our future, and for some, the down-time at work creates a great opportunity to start getting serious about developing technical skills. If you’ve been thinking about enrolling a developer bootcamp, but aren’t sure how to tackle the holidays, we have the solution.

As an online bootcamp, we can do things in-person bootcamps can’t.  Like give every student an optional two week winter break, so you can take some time off and then finish the program in January.
