Dev Bootcamp is a 9-week intensive coding bootcamp in an intimate class and lab setting Monday through Friday at 40 hours a week. We teach professional web development using Ruby on Rails. In 9 weeks you can learn enough programming to start contributing value to an engineering team as an entry level developer. Students do not need prior experience in software development; the program's goal is for graduates to have enough knowledge to join a company as an entry-level developer. Dev Bootcamp has placed 95 percent of its graduates with average starting annual salaries of more than $85,000. Dev Bootcamp recently launched in Chicago, and is accepting new students.
