“Tech Elevator was very difficult but it showed me what I could do. I didn’t think I was capable of learning so much and doing so much in such a short time. It was character building. You have to learn on the fly. You have to get used to being comfortable in uncomfortable situations and being confident that you will learn quickly.”

It’s good to be in tech in Wilmington; in fact, there are 70% more jobs in tech across all industries as compared to all other job openings in the state.

Delaware’s job market may be smaller than those that surround it, but it has strong business opportunities for job seekers. As Technical.ly puts it: “The big-fish-small-pond effect is one of Delaware’s biggest assets. Any way you slice it, Delaware is a small pond, albeit one with some huge fish.” From fintech, medtech to agtech, Delaware is home to the likes of Capital One, Discover Financial Services, JPMorganChase, Perdue, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, among many others.

"I can't imagine a better live remote learning experience than I'm getting right now at Tech Elevator. Classes aren't just a daily video that students ‘watch-and-email-in-with-questions’ experience. We have live, in-person instruction by video conference so we can ask questions or make comments at any time, slides to take notes from, daily quizzes to check everyone's understanding and feelings, code-along examples, and tutorials. On top of that, instructors are available to answer questions via video-link with screen sharing abilities during normal office hours, as well as often being willing to answer questions after hours. I can't emphasize enough that everyone at Tech Elevator has gone above & beyond. All of this extends to Pathway events and job searching as well. I was so impressed with our recent remote interviews, where we were connected to companies hiring through our virtual classroom technologies. After having seven wonderful interviews, I felt great about my job search. There's no way that I would have been able to get to this point on my own and I am so thankful for all of Tech Elevator's staff for giving me emotional support, tangible skills, and a major leg-up in this live remote environment!"

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.
