Why a coding bootcamp is the best investment you can make this year

Learn to code at a coding bootcamp and build a bright future for yourself

If you’ve spent any time on job portals you’ll have seen that the positions that just keep coming up are ‘Full Stack Developer’, ‘Java Developer’ or ‘Software Developer’ and we’re not just talking about Spain or Europe — this is a position that is becoming increasingly more solicited across the world.

As more and more companies realise that it is imperative to have a strong online presence, more and more money is being invested into conquering the e-commerce market and widening their reach through the internet. With more and more competition online, those who’ve been plodding along for years with the same old website are realising that they need to step up their game when it comes to UX (user experience) and SEO, meaning that in many cases, a whole new website needs to be created. Developers are therefore in very high demand and frankly, there aren’t enough of them.

The US Department of Labor has predicted that the number of software developer jobs will grow by 24% between 2016 and 2026 and notes this increase as much faster than average.

So there is a big demand for Software Developers, but why leave your job to retrain as one at a coding bootcamp?

Well, depending on the sector you’re currently in, the IT and technology sector could offer you some significantly more attractive economic benefits.If you’ve done your research you’ll have noticed that an average starting salary for a Software Developer in Spain is around €23,000, €37,000 in Amsterdam and €46,000 in Germany, according to payscale. These figures are for entry level positions, however, when you look at what an experienced Software Developer earns, figures can reach up to €75,000 a year. That is not a salary to be scoffed at, and well exceeds that of other sectors.

But how much money do you have to invest initially in attending a coding bootcamp?

Our Java Web Developer bootcamp costs €8,900 with the clear objective of turning complete beginners into professional programmers in 5 months. If you put that into perspective, that’s 800 hours (€11 p/hr) until you’re on the employment ladder and earning between 23–46k a year.Sound like a good investment now?

But how do you know you’ll definitely get a job in the IT and technology sector after completing a coding bootcamp with Ubiqum?
