Just to correct your statement. Students do not pay any placement fee at WeThinkCode. I am a student at WeThinkCode. There are no instructors or lecturers. It is completely peer-2-peer learning. The two intake tests don't have any instructions on purpose, to set those with the correct aptitude apart from the rest.

For some students, the traditional 12-week, full-time coding bootcamp may not seem like enough time to acquire the skills that employers want. As the coding bootcamp industry has evolved, longer coding bootcamps such as Turing, Galvanize, C4Q, Ada Developers Academy, Learner's Guild, CODE University, Holberton School, Make School, We Think Code, and 42 have emerged with courses ranging from 6 months to 5 years. These schools emphasize computer science concepts, offer apprenticeships, and provide in-depth, cutting-edge technology education, without the opportunity cost of a traditional computer science degree. Think a longer coding bootcamp could be for you? Start your research here.Continue Reading →
