Maybe Just a Few More Questions

  • 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.

  • 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 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 campus 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 campus director 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.
