Last Updated September 24, 2020

One trademark of a coding bootcamp is the project-based curriculum, which means students build many smaller projects throughout the bootcamp and one final capstone project, graduating with a full portfolio of web applications and mobile apps. Coding bootcamps prioritize teaching what the tech industry actually uses on the job today, so it’s no surprise that Full Stack JavaScript is the most common teaching language at coding bootcamps, used in 44% of Web Development courses. At Course Report, we’ve spotlighted so many JavaScript bootcamp alumni who have built innovative applications using these languages. Here’s a round-up of some of our favorite final projects!
