What Is Zip Code Wilmington?
Zip Code Wilmington is a coding bootcamp, but it is so much more.
We fast track you into a career in software development. Our motto is “A CODING CAREER IN UNDER A YEAR”, and we stand by it.
Over 12 weeks you will receive intense, project based learning in real scenarios.
Your teachers are among the most experienced Java developers out there, having coded real apps that scaled to millions of users.
The learning is intense. You will be in class from 9am-5pm but will also have 24/7 access to the lab.
During the day, Teachers and mentors will be available to answer your tough questions and guide you through. At night, the learning is up to you, but you won’t be alone. Your pair team member and classmates will be there for you to lean on for support and learn from.
You will be meeting with industry leaders throughout the program.
At the end of the classroom portion of the program, we have a very exciting opportunity available. Should you qualify, you will be tracked into an apprenticeship at one of our partner corporations for six month.
The apprenticeship will be paid and will give you the experience you need to launch a career.
Should you take the apprenticeship, you will not owe anything more. Your schooling will have been paid for.
Here’s how the apprenticeship program breaks down:
- $2,000 tuition up front.
- 6 month paid apprenticeships waiting at the end. You will be paid $20-$26 an hour.
- Should you qualify for the apprenticeship, and complete it, you will owe nothing more.
- Should you qualify for the apprenticeship, and take another job instead, you will owe 10k.
- Should you not qualify, or not become employed in software development, you will owe nothing more. That’s how confident we are that this course will launch you into a career in software development.
Who Exactly Are The Companies Involved?
Our industry alliance starts with the heads of development at some of our region’s most prestigious companies (companies like Barclays, Capital One, CSC, JPMorgan Chase, and Wawa). These individuals are providing us with the knowledge they have accumulated over decades. They are also providing us access to the high-performance programmers who have set their companies apart.
They are helping you, because you are their future. These companies are defined by access to good quality coders. As such, they are pouring their expertise into this school to ensure that the people who come out have what it takes to be among the best in the world.
What Will The Apprenticeship Look Like?
Education is meaningless without application. We are one of the few coding schools in the country that skips ahead. We fastrack you toward a dream opportunity at an area corporation. Should you qualify, you will gain the kind of experience that will set you apart from all other entry-level candidates: real experience, in the real world, that you can take anywhere.
We set ourselves apart by providing a practical education. You are learning the methods that will be in use in the largest and most well established coding shops in the world. Agile, Scrum, Pair Coding, Object Orientation, and team leadership are just some of the skills you will learn here. We won’t just show you, you’ll do it.
And if you want to start your own company, or build your own app, that’s fine too. You will learn techniques, technologies, and processes that will set your company apart.
Too many programmers do not know the secrets and methodologies of scalable code. What separates a program that processes billions of transactions from one that coughs and dies after a few thousand users? The person who programmed it is the difference.
If you’re a big company, or even a start-up, who would you want to employ? The person who can hack together a website or the person who can do that and build the kind of code your company can scale with and sell down the road?
