Date for Desert Code Camp - 2017.1  Saturday, October 14, 2017 8:00:00 AM - Saturday, October 14, 2017 6:00:00 PM

From Bootcamp to Industry, Dos and Don'ts

Coding bootcamps are proliferating throughout greater Phoenix, promising to make beginning programmers into software developers in as little as 12 weeks. In this presentation, we will go over how to choose the right bootcamp for you, what to do for preparation and how to make the most of your time while in code school. Most importantly we’ll discuss how to make the jump from bootcamp to your first professional developer job. In this talk I’ll share my lessons learned on my career change as I went from bootcamp to internship to teaching at a code school to finally working as a full-time software developer. I’ll also share what I’ve learned working with other students and what my bootcamp peers have done successfully and unsuccessfully with their careers.
