Coding Bootcamps Are Gaining Popularity

The second annual study found the amount of schools, which focus particularly on computer programming degree, rose from 43 to 67 in 2015.  On the other hand, the amount of coding bootcamps rose 138% compared to 2014.  For the time being, coding bootcamps do not mean the ending of computer science degrees by any means.

In addition, the analysis found that Ruby was the frequent teaching language, used in 35 percent of lessons. JavaScript is gaining popularity in the last year and now accounts for 21 percent of lessons. Full stack software like Meteor are gaining popularity among programmers at an extremely rapid pace.

With the help of cloud providers, developers are able to churn out code at a faster rate today compared to few years ago.  Development tools today allow coders to go from a cloud setup to multiple server setup on a dedicated server with just few changes to the code.

So far San Francisco is the main hub where all these bootcamps are taking place followed by New York, Seattle, Portland and Chicago.  It will be interesting to see how bootcamps will evolve over the next few years as more and more people are learning how to code.

Study Tips For Students

  1. Study in group.  Chances are someone else also needs to understand the exact same thing. In the event you are uncertain about a theory, what’s needed for an idea being discussed or an evaluation, do not go home lost.
  2. Study in the park, local library, at a cafe.
  3. Do things which are not stressing or related to study only. You may believe you do not have time for it, but your mind needs rests.
  4. Use study intervals to compile notes, reveal your work to teachers and ask for comments.
  5. There’s absolutely no point to understanding everything on the syllabus should you not understand how to accommodate it to test-style questions under time limits.
  6. Make acronyms with quotations or essential notions as they are simpler to recall, see videos, use flashcards and compose a term or thought a definition on the opposite side, on one side, and read the cards prior to going to bed.
  7. Exercise writing with a pencil/pen, regularly. Select pencils that have an excellent grasp. Warm your hands up before tests and shake them about to loosen up your wrists. It can make rapid writing simpler.
  8. Have a sturdy breakfast, get to school early, and have a quick revision of the material, but stop reviewing an hour before the test.
  9. Fully understand the concept.  It is about thinking outside the box and understanding the theories. You must know your work inside out to be able to write about it efficiently in an examination.
  10. This is just test and what matters most is you did your best when it comes to studying.  Pace yourself and prepare in advance.
