We're excited to present the results of our latest survey of graduates in the bootcamp space. We surveyed graduates from 48 qualifying programming schools and received 432 responses from graduates that met the criteria.

The majority of graduates of coding bootcamps are finding full-time employment, and 75% of graduates surveyed report being employed in a full-time job requiring the skills learned at bootcamp, with an average salary increase of 44%.

Thanks to Launch Academy for creating the following infographic to further explain these findings:

Among the results, we found:

  • 75% report being employed full-time in a job requiring the skills learned at bootcamp, compared to 5% working as full-time programmers beforehand.

  • The average student paid $10k in tuition.
  • The typical attendee is 29, has 6 years of work experience, and has never worked as a programmer.
  • 38% of bootcamp attendees are female.
