Online coding bootcamps

Veteran

Adam Knighting Ponte Vedra, FL

Does anyone have experience with any of the online coding bootcamps (Lambda School, Flatiron School, Udemy,... etc)? I'm interested in a good self paced program for full stack developer.

LamdaSchool is a great option, if you can get in.
It's backer is a top notch Techie & Entrepreneur, https://twitter.com/tommycollison

Do not over think it, get in and put the effort once in it.

Group courses are much better than self-paced, even if high quality one like at Coursera.

Finally, at latter stages, do some algo/problem prep in your one language, likely JS

All the best

Adam - I'm not a programmer but I took a free course in Python just to challenge myself. Alison.com offers free, self-paced courses. Here is the one I took:

I would also try Edx.org as you can audit just about every course for free.

Best of luck.

Hi Adam,

Thank you for your service and your question! I don't have any personal experience with coding classes, but I did a search on ACP AdvisorNet for "online coding" and found the following question: https://acp-advisornet.org/questions/4014/where-or-what-best-class-take-first-when-getting-it-security.

The answer posted references code.org as well as codeacademy.com. You may also find it helpful to search within the "Community" tab for advisors with a background in cybersecurity, and you can message them directly.

I hope this helps! Please feel free to message me if you have any questions.

Best,
Megan
