This blog post is one of 4 in the serie Learning to Code in San Francisco.

San Francisco is a city with rich cultural history and diversity. Going all the way back to the gold rush in the 1800’s, Californians have always reinvented themselves according to circumstances at hand. 

That tradition lives on today as many San Franciscans look to new careers after their jobs disappeared due to COVID-19 in the biggest economic downturn since the Great Depression. Technology remains a relatively strong sector locally with other jobs drastically cut or nonexistent following the pandemic.

In particular, those who’ve completed high-quality computer coding courses are landing good jobs.  

Some of those signing up for coding “bootcamps” - intense, accelerated programs that teach specific coding languages - are seeking jobs with better security. While no career track guarantees you a job, mid-career learners – and those right out of high school or college – are eager to gain expertise that promises employment. 

Hybrid Coding Bootcamps

In particular, “hybrid” bootcamps – where students learn at their own pace during the week (with an instructor available for any issues) and have live, instructor-guided studies with peers on Saturdays – are appealing to many with busy family lives and limited or no income.

A relatively recent addition to coding courses in the Bay Area is Nucamp, which offers a winning combination of instruction by pros in the field; flexible, part-time learning during the week, and live interaction with an instructor and other students on the weekend. 

Unique to Nucamp is its “social mission” to make coding bootcamp available to everyone With expert instruction, very reasonable cost and courses available in smaller communities as well as large cities, Nucamp is staying true to its mission.
