WEEKEND CODING BOOTCAMPS
WHO ARE WE?
We are a group of developers who want to share our passion for programming
We trained together at Founders + Coders and dwyl and now work as a team of professional developers. We build websites and apps for a range of clients from established corporations to startups.
We believe that anyone can learn to code with the right resources and support network around them. Our goal is to inspire the next generation of coders by building a community and platform on which to build their skills. At JumpstartJS we feel that the best way to do this is through short but intense weekend bootcamps. It's long enough to give you a real taste of what it's like to be a developer but short enough to fit around a busy schedule.

Don't just take our word for it...
I'd often tried to learn to code on my own but found it very difficult to get started. JumpstartJS provided the perfect environment to learn with likeminded people. A great weekend that I'd recommend to any senior manager looking to get more technical!
Really great first coding bootcamp. Learnt the basics of Javascipt, GitHub and APIs. The modules were easy to follow with lots of hands on learning, including building a live web application. Would definitely recommend!
