While possible, learning Python all by yourself can be difficult, so, the question is: Is a Python bootcamp worth it? With added structure and support, you may find that what was once daunting and confusing has become more accessible and within reach. Whether or not that’s worth it depends on what your personal and professional goals are for learning Python.
What Is a Bootcamp and How Can It Help You Learn Python?
A coding bootcamp is a place where you can quickly learn programming languages like Python and other technical skills through prepared course material. At Hackbright Academy, bootcamp courses are centered around Python, but a full-stack (front-end and back-end coding languages) are taught in the Software Engineering course.
Learning Python can help prepare you for a career in software engineering or development. And, even though you may begin your career only knowing Python, you can learn additional programming languages to broaden your knowledge and opportunities.
As a software engineer, you can work on front-end, back-end, or full-stack projects. Both startups and established companies can have positions available for software developers.
Is Python a Good First Programming Language to Learn?
One of the reasons we teach Python at Hackbright Academy is that it’s known for being a beginner-friendly programming language. Since its syntax is similar to English, native English speakers can have a simpler time learning and implementing Python. It is also a versatile language that allows for multiple solutions through different problem-solving approaches.

What Can You Do with Python Personally and Professionally?
Python is known for being a back-end language, but it is also known for being incredibly versatile, so there is a lot you can do with it. For instance, even though Hackbright alumnae graduate with a Python-focused software engineering portfolio, their projects are unique.
