Coding might be the last remaining industry that represents the American Dream: After passing a quick course from one of the best coding schools, enterprising and hard-working individuals can turn a skill into a career in the industry — something that you can't really say about mining or retail work or even trucking nowadays.
But how do you get started? In 2014 and 2015, coding schools were huge. Since then, some have argued, the bubble has started to deflate. This year, the famed Iron Yard is closing its doors, and Dev Bootcamp has also closed to any applications. Which bootcamps are still around, which have closed up their shop, and which one provides the high-quality education you'll need to stand out?
Here's a rundown of the best coding schools still operating today, using data and reviews from SwitchUp‘s most recent ranking of the bootcamp ecosystem, and ignoring those that didn't make at least 4 stars out of five.
