"Boot.dev teaches programming better than any other site I've tried. It has an addictive gamified system with experience points, levels and achievements. Boot.dev is exactly what it says it is, a direct path to a career as a backend developer."
"I've been working as a postdoc, and ever since getting my feet wet with code I have been interested in transitioning into tech. I recently completed the back-end path on Boot.dev and just landed my first professional development job!"
"The wealth of knowledge from the hungry programmers in the Boot.dev Discord helped me land my first software developer job just a month after joining!"
"I wanted to learn to code, but boot camp and university weren't an option because of work and family. I came across Boot.dev, and the simple path to a new career was huge for me. I now have a job-offer in hand!"
"I'm a senior engineer learning Go, and the pace of Boot.dev courses has been perfect for me. The members of the Discord are quick to help out with detailed answers and explanations."
Some might look at the job data and assume that front-end positions are better for entry-level devs because the salaries are lower. On the contrary! There is higher demand and lower supply for backend positions. With the right preparation, landing a backend position can actually be easier.
It's completely up to you. The time it will take you to be "job ready" will depend on how much you already know, how often you study, and how long you study for. That said, the backend career path takes many people about 12 months.
Absolutely! If you built it, use it. You'll build several personal projects while completing our curriculum, and our final course about finding jobs will show you how to construct a job-ready portfolio.
We're not a $10,000 bootcamp.
We're not a $50,000 university degree.
We are a self-paced, gamified online learning platform for back-end web development. You can learn with us for the price of a gym membership.
You can demo the first few chapters of each course as a guest, but after that you'll be in "guest mode" or "read only" mode. In guest mode you won't be able to complete assignments, take quizzes, or do the interactive parts of the courses.
As a paid member you get access to everything.
You can read all about our methodology here. In a nutshell, we're laser focused on teaching backend-development, which is somewhat of a rarity in online learning. We're also focused on solving what we believe is the hardest problem with online learning: boredom.
If you prefer coding rather than watching, and your struggle with online learning is staying motivated and engaged, we think you'll like learning with us.
If for any reason you feel you aren't getting enough value out of the platform, we don't want your money. We have a simple return policy. Just contact us within 30 days of your purchase you're entitled to a full refund.
Yes! We believe in being as fair as possible to learners around the world, and that means pricing that reflects respective earning power.
If you're seeing pricing in anything other than USD, then you're already seeing discounted pricing for your country. If you're not seeing discounted pricing, but you are from a country with lower purchasing power, please let us know and we'll get you a discount.
Absolutely! We have team plans that let your manager pay for your membership and those of your team, while managing billing all in one place. To get started just check out the teams page. You'll need to be logged in.
For sure, just check out the gifts page. You'll be able to purchase a redeemable code that you can give to a friend.

You should be able to contact the customer service department of your credit card company or your Bank and get the transactions approved or your card unlocked.
