Starting a Tech Career in Philly? 13+ Coding Bootcamps and Training Programs to Know

Are you thinking about a possible career pivot in 2024? If you’re interested in getting into tech but not sure where to start, this guide is for you.

Coding bootcamps are short-term, intensive tech training programs. For the past decade, they’re been a popular choice for people who want to learn the basics, but don’t want to commit to a two- or four-year computer science program — and more recently, for those who want more depth than can be found in free tools found online. Many bootcamps can be completed in just a few weeks or months while students hold down other jobs.

Of course, you should think about whether a bootcamp is the right choice for you in the first place.
