What is the difference between Codecademy Pro and a bootcamp?

Codecademy Pro and bootcamps are both great ways to learn how to code.  The difference between the two is the time commitment and the type of instruction you receive. Codecademy Pro is designed to be much more self-directed than a bootcamp is.

With Codecademy Pro, you can work through the material at your own pace and reach out to advisors when your schedule allows it.  You can also customize your learning path with content that matches your specific goals and projects.

Bootcamps are typically 12-16 week full time courses that in-depth instruction and total immersion in the skills that you are learning. We know that not everyone has the option of learning to code full time for 3-4 months, so with Codecademy Pro you can work through the content at your own pace, and on your schedule.

A number of our users have also signed up for Codecademy Pro as a way of preparing for a coding bootcamp, which allows them to learn the basics before they dive in.
