An Introduction to Coding Courses for Women

How Coding Bootcamps Help With More Than Learning

Hackbright Academy is a coding bootcamp based in San Francisco that’s dedicated to helping people learn how to become software engineers, but our coding bootcamp is so much more than a place to learn the material. We’ve grown a community of supportive and phenomenal people who are enthusiastic about technology, programming, and changing the ratio in the tech industry, one software engineer at a time.

A Place to Make Connections, Get Advice, and Change Your Career

Making Connections

One of the greatest things about coding bootcamps is that you’re entering a space where tech connections can be made with just about everyone you’re working with and around. Your fellow students are entering the industry by your side. Your instructors and mentors have already or are already working in the field. Tech recruiters connect with bootcamp graduates to fill positions.

Getting Advice

You can always turn to Google to get advice from internet strangers, but you may have better luck getting advice from your coding bootcamp connections. Hackbright alumni, mentors, and instructors have been where you currently are, and they want to see you succeed. That’s why you’ll be able to get advice on coding, careers, and software engineering at Hackbright.

Changing Careers

Changing career paths can be time-consuming and challenging for many reasons, but coding bootcamps like Hackbright can simplify that transition for people who can’t go get a 4-year degree or pay for other educational options. If you like the idea of studying full-time for 12-weeks before pursuing a junior development job, then Hackbright can help you.

A Place to Develop Your Skills while Getting the Support You Need

Of course, learning is an important part of coding bootcamps, and at Hackbright academy, you’ll do that in spades. But, there’s a difference between learning by yourself and learning in a supportive community that wants to see you succeed. When learning gets frustrating—and it will get frustrating—where will you turn to get help? At Hackbright, you can turn to your peers, mentors, instructors, and resources. By yourself… I guess there’s always internet strangers.

A Place That’s Always There for You to Join in Discussions and Events

Once you join Hackbright, you can rely on our community to help you out, and you can always help out our community. Our alumnae network is involved with programs, events, and tech discussions in the industry. So, whether you’re in the Bay Area, or you’re somewhere else in the world, you’ll be able to stay connected. We’ll all help change the ratio, one woman at a time.

Learn Software Engineering and Become a Part of the Tech Community

Becoming a part of the tech world isn’t always straightforward or easy, so it can be helpful to become a part of a supportive community that’s already established in the industry. If learning software engineering and becoming part of a tech community sounds good to you, then you should check out Hackbright’s 5-week Prep course or 12-week Software Engineering course.
