I've never been to Bogotá, where should I stay?
We have a promo code for an international hotel/hostel called Selina. Promo code is Selinabogotabootcamp. Make sure you choose the Parque de la 93 location. Additionally, we suggest browsing Airbnb in Chico Norte or Usaquen neighborhoods. Just make sure you can walk to the office because traffic in Bogotá is pretty rough!
Bogotá is an up and coming economy, lots of room for growth in new industries. Specifically coding and web development! Other hubs include New York and San Francisco but the tuition for these bootcamps range from $12,000 to $21,000 USD depending on the length of the course. We want to be at the forefronts of the tech revolution in Colombia. Bogota Bootcamp wants give people the opportunity to learn the skills necessary to be part of the ever-growing tech industry. Bogota has so much to offer. Nightlife, fresh coffee, great weather, and the opportunity to grow.
Why a remote bootcamp? Can't I learn at home?
You can, but you won't. Home has too many distractions. When you learn full time, your mind makes an adjustment: 'This is what I'm doing now.' You need the hours of practice every day and the support of a community. Living in Bogota will offer a fresh outlook, a focused mind where you will have committed to making a change and where we are committed to working with you, Monday through Friday. 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week. There is no substitute for a live instructor, peers, and a classroom.
Can anyone learn to code professionally?
Web development is not about really clever coding 90% of the time. Web development is a career where you build up knowledge through study and experience. It's more about acquired knowledge and skills than your IQ. We can teach you the skills that you will need to pass your interview, but you need to stay motivated to find the experience.
