I've never written a line of code in my life. Is this for me?

YES! Code-Vacations attract professionals, students (over 18), entrepreneurs, and curious individuals from all over the world. Our boot camps are designed for true beginners. You'll receive a course orientation a few weeks prior to your trip to ensure that everyone arrives on the same page. We keep our classes small so there is ample time to ask questions and receive feedback.
