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.

Why Should I Pick Zip Code?

Zip Code Wilmington is one of the most unique coding schools in the country because of its industry-led approach to training.

The curriculum was built with the guidance of big companies, big name banks, and huge brand names. These companies want you to be part of their software development team.

Throughout the course, you will interact with the best. Software development leaders from around the region congregate in our classroom to give you the exact recipe you will need to succeed as a professional software developer.

Your main teacher has years of industry experience and knows what it takes.

Will you learn web development? Yes. But you will learn so much more. You will learn about the underpinnings of so many of the frameworks that drive web development today.

You are not being prepped for a flash in the pan startup job. You are preparing for a type of coding that has been relevant for the past 30 years and will be relevant for the next 30.

And by the way, did you know that nearly 40% of all websites in the world were developed in Java?

You will get hands-on development experience by working on real world scenarios. Learn what it takes to code apps that handle billions of transactions, apps that scale to millions of users, ATM apps, and apps that control financial institutions.

Learn how to code the apps that run the world.

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 Does It Cost?

The full cost of Zip Code Wilmington’s Java Bootcamp is $12,000.

But, we have an offer for you. Instead of deciding today if coding is the right career for you, and plonking down more than 15,000 on a boot camp. Pay 2k at the outset of our course.

If, at the end, you choose to enter a coding career, you can pay the 10k balance in one of two ways:

  1. Enter one of our apprenticeship opportunities for 6 months and owe nothing more.
  2. Get a great job in coding and pay us the 10k balance.

It’s that simple.

And here’s our guarantee. If you aim for an apprenticeship and don’t get it, or decide that coding isn’t the right career for you, you walk away and owe nothing more.

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?

Is This Opportunity Right For Me?

Yes, if you are someone who is passionate about coding. Perhaps you’ve tried to learn on your own. Perhaps you see the opportunity in front of you, but don’t know what it takes to reach it. We will help you get there. Whether you are a driven beginner, or an experienced professional wanting to take the next step in their career and learn Java.  We’ll get you there.

No degree is necessary. You will gain as much direct experience coding as you would during a four year computer science degree. What you need is the passion and the brainpower to learn quickly.

Not sure if the program is right for you? Don’t worry. We can assess you and tell you if the program is the right fit. Our testing was designed by world leaders in assessment and competence measurement. If you have what it takes, you’ll know after our interview.

Please apply. You won’t know unless you try.
