Why is BeachCoders so much more affordable than other schools?

Most bootcamps require students to commit large sums of time and money to learn everything in one concentrated sprint. BeachCoders® puts the student first by offering stand-alone professional courses in each subject focus. The courses can be combined and attended as desired within a person’s schedule and budget. We’ve found this to be far more effective for tech education success. You can view our pricing HERE.

Do I need any previous experience?

The founding purpose of BeachCoders is to attract, engage and educate people with little or no previous experience to learn coding. Coding can be a pathway to a new career or an avenue to pursue a creative passion. Computer coding is a language and a way of thinking that once mastered opens doors. At BeachCoders, we are committed to advancing your goals no matter your skill level. (Caveat – Students are expected to have basic computer operational experience such as handling files, copying, pasting, posting, operating a web browser and a basic understanding of how files are organized on a computer). Our programs cover the basic computer science information that will prepare anyone to develop websites, software or go on to become a professional full stack developer.
