Best Coding Bootcamp

Best Bootcamp Winner

We will help you land a job in tech in Detroit.

The goal of the Detroit coding bootcamp is to land a job. Detroit is poised to become one of the next innovation hubs in the U.S. Many associate the city with the automotive industry, but the fact remains that Detroit is welcoming more tech jobs than you might realize. While the automotive industry was once associated almost exclusively with manufacturing, technology shifts have led to a boost in jobs related to smart technology, real-time data monitoring, smart grid systems, and all-around innovation.

Detroit is home to several blue-chip companies ready to hire tech talent, including Ford, GE, and Accenture. The Motor City is also home to a thriving startup scene supported by successful entrepreneurs like Dan Gilbert of Quicken Loans.

Tech Elevator’s established Alumni community is working in exciting tech roles throughout the city. As a Tech Elevator student, you’ll have access to this alumni network for advice, resources, and mentoring opportunities.

Connected to the Detroit Community

Tech Elevator believes in “elevating people, companies, and communities” and a big part of our mission is to play a role in making the communities we serve better. We do that by giving away free learn to code programming to the Detroit tech community through Learn to Code meetups. We also work to partner with organizations who share our values about making paths to careers in tech more accessible and we seek to engage our students and Alumni with the tech community.

Andorra Fields   |   2020 Graduate   |   Detroit

I was a recently laid-off Sales Development Representative and now I'm a Developer Trainee at United Shore.

“Six months ago, I became unemployed and took stock of my life. I didn't complete my Bachelor's Degree, and never had any sort of coding nor computer science in college. After researching education possibilities, I decided on Tech Elevator's 14-week Java program.”

Maybe Just a Few More Questions

Learn more about our local coding bootcamps.

  • What development skills will I learn at Tech Elevator?

    You will learn either the Java or C# language, depending on your bootcamp selection. By the time you graduate, you will be able to create dynamic, database-backed web applications. This will give you the foundational skills to hit the ground running as a junior web application developer.

    Specific technologies you will learn include:

    • Java/C# (.NET)

    • HTML

    • CSS

    • JavaScript

    • SQL

    You can view our school catalog for more information.

  • Who teaches at Tech Elevator?

    Our instructors are industry professionals with an average of 20 years working as software developers. They’re passionate about helping students start their careers in tech, and are invested in their success. Stop by an Open House to meet an instructor – either remotely or at a campus.

    Learn more about our instructors in this video.

  • Why do you offer Java and C#?

    We founded Tech Elevator as a demand-driven program designed to get you into a great career in programming. Java and C# are both widely used in software development, with a consistently large number of job openings in a variety of industries worldwide.

    These two languages are excellent foundations which can act as a springboard to other languages you learn as you continue to build your career.

  • Should I choose Java or C#?

    Both are great languages to know, but depending on your job focus, certain industries tend to use one language more than the other. As a good starting point, research types of jobs you’re interested in and check out the requirements listed in the job description. If there are certain companies you’re targeting, they may prefer one technology over the other and some basic research will give you the answer. We’re happy to talk through this more if you have questions.

  • What’s a typical day like in the bootcamp?

    Most mornings consist of lectures and learning, and lots of fresh coffee. After we break for lunch, you get to test your skills with hands-on practice. This could consist of group work, headphones-on solo work, tutoring sessions or pairing programming assignments.

    The best way to learn is to do, so you’ll literally be coding from day one.

  • How can I prepare before bootcamp begins?

    Once you’ve been accepted into Tech Elevator, we’ll be reaching out to you for best ways to prepare with exercises recommended by our instructors. In the meantime, Stanford’s Computer Science 101 is a great place to start. It’s free and can be accessed here.

  • Can I really be a developer in 14 to 30 weeks (depending on the program I choose)?

    Yes, you can. Our goal is to teach you how to be a developer, not just how to write code. That means you’re solving problems and thinking through solutions like a developer as you continue to practice and grow in your career. After 14 or 30 weeks, you’ll have confidence to start your career as a junior developer with the foundational code skills that will have you making an impact from your first day on the job.

    Beyond the hard skills you’ll also become a well-rounded job candidate after taking advantage of our Pathway Program™, focusing on career development skills to help land your next job.

  • What if I can’t keep up with curriculum?

    In addition to your instructor in the classroom, each cohort has dedicated instructors who support extra work outside of the classroom. That means you can schedule tutoring sessions as much as you need to, ensuring you’re understanding concepts and implementing coding.

    Remember, your cohort lead and instructors have a pretty good pulse on how you’re keeping up and will work with you if you feel like you’re getting behind or struggling in any way.
