Join the 2018 Coding Bootcamp Survey


Over the last few years, we have run a free coding bootcamp survey. The purpose of this survey is to track the employment outcomes for graduates of coding bootcamps and other web development training programs. This year, we are changing things up a bit.

We are looking for additional partners to help us promote the survey to students, grads, and instructors from all types of programming schools.

If you would like to join as a partner, please submit your email address below. We will send you more information about how you can help us with this initiative.

The aim of this survey is to gather honest feedback on employment outcomes for graduates of programming schools. Since we started this initiative in 2014, we have received over 5,000 responses from graduates of all types programming training programs: full-time (i.e., immersive) bootcamps and part-time evening and weekend courses from both private and public universities and community colleges.

This year’s survey will be open from October 1st through December 31st. We will publish the results in January 2018, alongside a list of participating partners and their logos.

We are back with our third annual coding bootcamp survey, and this time we’re planning to do something a little different. We’re going to release our results in real-time, as they come in, so that you can follow along with the results as they get added to the survey.

Why do we think this is important? Because there’s a lot of noise on the internet about coding bootcamps right now. There are some serious concerns about the future of coding bootcamps (are they closing?), some serious claims about their success rates (is it really 94%?), and some serious questions about how much money coding bootcamp grads really make (up to $100k?).

We wanted to cut through all of that noise, and give you an accurate picture of exactly what is happening with coding bootcamps in 2018. And we wanted to share it with you as soon as possible.

How long does the survey take? Less than 10 minutes – we tried to keep it as short as possible!

What happens when I complete the survey? At the end of the survey, you’ll be able to see a link to download your free copy of our 2018 Coding Bootcamp Outcomes Report. It’s not available anywhere else!

The 2018 Coding Bootcamp Survey is here!

We’ve been making this survey for three years now. In that time, I’ve seen thousands of people use it to find the coding bootcamp that’s right for them. For example, one student wrote:

“Thank you very much for this awesome study. It helped me a lot to decide which bootcamp fits me best.”

And another wrote:

“I’m currently researching online coding bootcamps and trying to decide which one to enroll in. Your study has been incredibly helpful!”

This year we’re doing the survey again! And with your help, we can make it bigger and better than ever before. If you or someone you know has attended a coding bootcamp in the past two years (and trust me, you do), please take a few minutes out of your day to fill out this super-simple form. It takes less than 5 minutes on average to complete, and your participation will help hundreds of students start their journey into programming.

Sharing the results of our yearly coding bootcamp survey with our users.

We have been running the Course Report Coding Bootcamp Survey for five years now, and we are excited to continue with the tradition! We believe that it is super important for students to be able to learn about their options before making a decision about their education. And in order to do that, we need your help!

As a student who has attended or is currently attending a coding bootcamp, we want to hear from you. All participants will receive early access and will be able to see the results as soon as they are published. Additionally, anyone who completes the survey will be entered into a drawing for one of two $100 Amazon Gift Cards. The survey takes less than 10 minutes, and all responses are anonymous.

Please note that this survey is only for coding bootcamps; if you’ve attended an online course or nongraduate bootcamp like Startup Institute or General Assembly’s Digital Marketing Immersive, please take our Online Course Survey or General Assembly Survey instead.

This is your chance to make a difference! We’re looking for recent graduates of coding bootcamps to tell us about their experiences, and we need your help.

If you or someone you know has attended a coding bootcamp, please fill out the survey here: https://goo.gl/forms/r5FvCKzAaFyjK8t43. Please share this link with your friends!

This survey is completely anonymous and takes less than 5 minutes to fill out. Your responses will help us better understand how coding bootcamps are changing the educational landscape. We’ll be publishing the results of this survey in a blog post later this year, so stay tuned!

Who are we? My name is Kyle and I am a Data Analyst at Course Report (https://www.coursereport.com/). My colleagues and I are working on an industry-wide report about the coding bootcamp industry, which we hope to publish later this year. In the meantime, we’re sharing data from our student surveys every week on our blog (https://www.coursereport.com/blog).

What is Course Report? Course Report is an online resource that helps people find and compare coding schools (

Since 2012 we have been publishing the Course Report coding bootcamp industry survey. It was the first of its kind and is one of the most comprehensive surveys in existence. If you’re thinking about attending a bootcamp, this annual report is an invaluable resource for comparing schools on outcomes like job placement, salaries, and student satisfaction.

The Course Report team wants to hear from you!**
