Why choose Enspiral Dev Academy?
The table above shows the difference between studying to become a web developer at Dev Academy vs University. This blog series investigates the advantages of Dev Academy, starting with reason 1: It’s faster.
For those who have already studied, who have external commitments, who have entered the workforce but want a radical change, 4 years full time study is an opportunity cost that is often too great to consider. Dev Academy creates the possibility of levelling up and launching into a completely new career within the year.
“What I learned at EDA is worth gold…. I learned more in these nine weeks than I have in over ten years as a self-taught software developer. I personally found the holistic curriculum at EDA to be incredibly effective.”
Martin, 2016 graduate
Web development jobs hold the options of flexible hours, remote work, salary increases and the security of an ever-expanding high-demand field where the most exciting innovations are being made. When Dev Academy offers the possibility of joining this world within the year, the prospect of engaging in a radical career change seems far more possible.
The intensive, in-class part of Dev Academy’s programme is 9 weeks, with an optional extra week at the end for jobseeking. That’s 360–550 hours — we do go late and cram in extra hours some weeks! In a university degree you might have 12 hours of lectures and tutorials per week, and 23 weeks of learning per year around holidays and exams. This means that in a whole year you’d only get 276 hours learning. So while a 9 week bootcamp seems brief, it’s tantamount to the teaching time of a whole year and a half to two years at uni, half an Engineering degree! We pack in the maximum amount of learning possible in a tight space of time, which means your costs of living and lost income are lower.
Web development is creative, it’s ever-evolving, it’s challenging and it’s about problem solving. If you think Dev Academy might be the place for you, head to our website and apply today for the next Auckland or Wellington cohort.
