"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!"
"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!"
"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'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."
Most students spend about 12 months*
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 a backend position can actually be easier to land.
With all that in mind, a computer science education is actually useful for all types of developers, we've just found that it's disproportionately useful to backend engineers.
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, you should use it. The more you personalize and add your own features to the base projects, the better they will look on your portfolio.
We're not a $10,000 bootcamp.
We're not a $50,000 university degree.
We are an interactive, self-paced, online learning path for back-end developers. You can get everything we offer 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" or "read only" mode. In guest mode you won't be able to complete assignments. You also won't have access to our exclusive Discord community, certifications, and quizzes.
Members enjoy all of the features on Boot.dev.
You can read all about our methodology here. In a nutshell, we teach computer science as it applies to back-end engineering, and we do that so that you can get the breadth and depth of knowledge you need to actually get a job. We do that by having you write code, like a LOT of code.
We hate to see you go, but we absolutely hate dark patterns, so we've made it really easy to cancel your subscription. You can cancel your membership any time from your settings page and you won't be billed again.
