12 Week Java Boot Camp

Students during lecture

 

Zip Code Wilmington’s Java Boot Camp is 12, intense, weeks long.

Classes run from 9am-5pm, 5 days a week.  But expect to spend as much time as you can at our facility, interacting with mentors, and learning with other students. Learning Java is not easy, and you’ll need the extra time. This is an immersive program.

You will be expected to stay in the area for the duration of the program.  Let us know if you need help relocating.

We believe in pair and small-group coding.  Our aim is to create an environment that is as close to what you’ll find in the workplace as possible.

Following the in-class training, area companies hire select graduates for paid, 26-week apprenticeships and direct-hire jobs.  These apprenticeships will be in and around Wilmington, Delaware.
