    Better than I could have hoped

    I am absolutely amazed at this program. I went in with a lot of skepticism, but it rapidly dissolved. Before our first day in we had a meet and greet with former students (completed 3 weeks before) and half of that data cohort already had job offers.

    I graduated on January 21 and on January 28 I had a very good job offer (starting 2 weeks later). This is for a full time permanent position.

    The teachers were excellent, always able to both keep us on track while also indulgin...

    Worth the Investment

    Before Zip Code Wilmington (ZCW), I had a background in Accounting with little to no coding experience. I was considering a change and like what you may be doing now, I looked into many different coding bootcamps to get a feel for the topics covered, time commitment, and the overall costs. The work is challenging and consistent effort is needed to really make the most of the 12 weeks. This will look like 80-100 hours every week attending lectures, working through labs and group projects,...

    Amazing Experience!

    To say that Zip Code Wilmington was a life changing experience feels like an understatement. The program is intense, as the word 'bootcamp' suggests, however you will get back every ounce you put into it and then some.

    This program teaches you more than just how to code. The faculty (who are all absolutely wonderful) support you with programming fundamentals, professional development, and networking, in addition to teaching you the tools and mindset to become a successful software...

    The best coding bootcamp of 2021

    This coding boot camp is the best one to join in 2021 and beyond. Before joining I did a lot of back ground research on all the coding boot camps available in the tri-state area and I encourage you to do the same. Every other bootcamp I spoke with was trying to hard sell me. They're always saying "dont think about it! put money down and join now before spots run out!". It felt like they're just trying to make a quick buck off of me. Not Zip Code though. The first questions they ask you a...

    Full Stack Bootcamp

    Zip Code Wilmington (ZCW) is an awesome program. They really push you to meet your full potential. The curriculum is well planned  and executed. I think the MOST valuable thing about it is the people. Everyone from the administrators to the instructors really genuinely cares about you and is there to support you along the way. Any program can teach you something but with ZCW they completely have your back and want to see you succeed - you will not find that every where.

    Instructors are unhelpful

    My time at Zip Code Wilmington would have definitely been a lot easier if I had some prior coding experience. I found most of the instructors to be unhelpful. Outside of the structured lessons we had each day, the instructors were either unavailable or got annoyed when asked for help. On the other hand, the bootcamp was great at providing job assistance due to partnerships with nearby tech companies . I also got lots of help with resume writing and interviewing tips. I thoroughly enjoyed...

    Best Decision I've Made!!!

    Zip Code Wilmington is a life changing experience. I had no previous software development experience prior to attending Zip Code. After three short months, I am now starting a new career as a software engineer.  The workload for Zip Code is intense and packed into 12 weeks. It’s hard. They were not kidding when they said you will be spending 80-100 hours a week. You will be attending lectures, doing homework assignments, working on professional development and colla...

    Terrific Experience

    In addition to being much less expensive than even online-only bootcamps, the experience beyond coding (professional development, connections with partners and access to first-round interviews, many mock interviews, lots of group coding experience, etc.) is worth so much more than the cost. 

    It's hard. It's a mountain of work, but it all helps, and I apply almost all of it every day in my new job. You have to say goodbye to your family for a few months and really buy in. If you do...

    "Life-changing" is overused, but it's legitimately the best word to describe this experience

    A year ago, I had never even heard of Zip Code Wilmington. I had never taken a computer science course, had zero experience with coding aside from very basic HTML and CSS, and thought that it was too late for me to get into the field of software development.

    So when I first learned about Zip Code, I was admittedly skeptical. It just seemed a little too good to be true.

    But after the first week or two, I understood why the program has been so successful for so many peopl...

    What a coding bootcamp should be!

    What makes Zip Code Wilmington different? It's there for you, the student. My time at ZCW was the hardest and best experience of my life. It allowed me to push myself harder than I have before and turn a passion into a career. This program is not for those without fight! Put in the work, the staff/instructors will go toe to toe with you on the work you put in because they believe in you.

    Each week, you'll have lectures, labs/assignments, projects that will continually test your s...

Some bootcamps help students overcome this hurdle by offering opportunities to work for the bootcamp itself, or with rea...
