    Spend 6 months of your gap year with Coding Dojo and become a self-sufficient software developer through hands-on programming experience.

    At Coding Dojo, our guiding philosophy is that anyone can learn to code. We believe all complex subjects can be taught very simply. If something isn't understood, it's because we haven't learned how to teach it effectively yet. We've honed our curriculum continuously for over 10 years with that goal in mind.

    We’ve cracked the code (literally) on how to teach 3 full stacks, rigorously and thoroughly, in the time it takes other bootcamps to teach one. More importantly, we enable you to master any new language — fast.

    Coding Dojo has campuses in 9 cities around the US plus an online campus. We started in Seattle and San Jose, which remain our flagship campuses, and have expanded steadily since then to cover several more cities. When choosing a city in which to open a campus, we look for up and coming tech hubs where our students will find lots of great career opportunities in software development.

    If there are no physical campuses near you, please consider our online campus which offers the same course, plus a part-time option, tailored for distance learning.
