Group Projects

Work with other students on various projects, building applications front to back using Agile methodology
Mentor new students. Teaching is the best way to understand something. By helping new students, you find new ways to solve problems, approach challenges, and nail down the underlying concepts of development.

Capstone Project

Build the application of your choice. Your capstone project can be an app you plan to launch for your own startup or sell on the app store. This, along with all other projects you build throughout the program, will result in a quality portfolio.


Live, Eat, Code

Coding House is an all inclusive, 14 week Full Stack JavaScript Bootcamp. Learning to code is very similar to learning to speak a new language - the best way to do it is to move to a country where you have to speak it all day, every day. Here at Coding House, we provide everything you need so that you can focus in an environment full of code!

Job Placement Guarantee

Students will gain exposure to Silicon Valley’s hottest companies, startups, and enterprises. Pay a placement fee of 18% of your first year's salary. We make introductions, help with placement, and help you to build your portfolio to showcase the skills that you’ve learned.

Live With Your Residents

Help is available from 9AM until 1AM seven days a week. When it’s late at night and you're stuck, pair with an instructor, TA, or another student for as long as you need. Super small class size of about 16 students ensures plenty of one-on-one time with your instructors and mentors. Typical ratio is 1 instructor to 7 students.

The Hottest Stack

Learn the current and trending web languages and frameworks that are in-demand now and into the future. Understand the pros and cons of each framework, basic syntax, and vocabulary so that you can pick the right tool for the job. Having the ability to pick up a new framework in a day, or a language in a couple days, is an essential skill as a developer.

Coding House is the only Full Immersion™ all inclusive boot camp in the world. We charge 18% of your first year's salary. To learn more, check out this FAQ.

Don't Pay Until You Get A Job

We believe in our approach so much that if you do not get a job as a developer, you don’t pay the placement fee! This ensures that our goals are aligned with yours. You can learn more on how we can do it and how it works, and about the outcomes for our students.

About Us

Our mission is to provide a viable alternative to higher education; one that does not result in crippling debt and teaches the real world skills necessary to get a job - in a fraction of the time.

Founded in 2014, we have the only live­-in all­ inclusive bootcamp in the world. During our 14 week program we provide room, board and instruction in our facility.

Our Manifesto


Make sure everyone’s relationship is a win­-win. From students, to staff, to partners, this is a value we don’t deviate from.

Change the world.

We have lots of challenges as a species. There are many smart people working to fix these challenges, and they all need tools to do their jobs. Software engineers make the tools we all use and help to progress humanity.

Rapid iterations.

We don’t believe in “good enough.” There is always room for improvement. We apply the agile methodology to all aspects of our operations.

Quick Facts

  • The median age is 26
  • Average starting pay is north of 84K
  • Project based - we build an app every 1 to 3 days
  • Student backgrounds: 1/3 have a CS degree, 1/3 are CS dropouts, 1/3 are changing their occupation
  • 35% of the students are female
  • All but 2 of our students have gotten jobs
  • It takes 43 days on average to get a job after the program ends

What makes us stand out?

Self reliance. Teaching developers how to pick up a new library in a few hours, a new framework in an afternoon, or a new language in a few days. Not that you’re going to be good at all in that short amount of time, but you can pick it up on your own without anyone’s help.

All-Inclusive. They found out other bootcamps were similar to traditional school: 9 to 5 with homework. "So what, you’re going to send these guys and gals home at 5 or 6 o’clock with an app to build and they don’t know anything about coding? What happens when they get stuck? Do they send an email? Get on a hangout? Wait until the morning?” How could we provide help until midnight, 1, or 2 AM? The only way we could figure it was to have a live­-in program; we could have help available all hours of the night. That also had some other benefits. It’s not like it’s hard to find a room to rent, or commuting to and from school is hard, or making dinner or doing the laundry is hard. But it does take away 2­ to 3 hours a day of cognitive resources that one can apply to learning something new, with no distractions (tv, family, friends, life, etc).

JavaScript over Rails. Ruby on Rails is great a tool in your tool box. JavaScript is more complicated, more moving parts and is harder to learn. Once you know full stack JavaScript, you can pick up Rails much easier as opposed to the other way around. Not to mention, Node surpassed Rails in the number of commits on GitHub in 2013 and lots of companies have moved to JavaScript.

18% of the first year’s salary. This was not our idea; we got it from another bootcamp. It’s great though! We started off with a 110% money back guarantee: if the student did not get a job within 6 months, we would pay them. The problem was that some of the students didn’t have the money to pay for the tuition. This makes sure that our goals are aligned with the students. This is not a new concept, it was how the very first universities worked 1000 years ago.
