While our list isn’t exhaustive, we believe these are some of the best coding courses in San Francisco.
1. General Assembly
General Assembly has 20 campuses around the globe where they teach technology, design and business. Lucky for San Francisco, General Assembly was one of the first bootcamps in town when they opened in shop in 2013.
Fun fact, One Month teacher and co-founder Chris Castiglione taught the first-ever coding course at the GA San Francisco when it opened in 2012.
2. Hack Reactor
Rated one of the best options by outlets like Course Report and SwitchUp, San Francisco just so happens to be the location of the company’s headquarters. Hack Reactor offers part-time, full-time, in-person, and online coding course options that teaches programmers-to-be how to think like programmers in addition to the ability to code. One major bonus for dog owners is that their campuses are pup-friendly. 🐶
3. App Academy
App Academy’s curriculum offers a focus on career coaching. The unique thing about App Academy, that none of the other coding courses offer, is that they only charge you once you’re hired as a developer.
The way App Academy works is they select students based on skills and require a refundable deposit of $3,000 that you get back if you’re not placed in a job that lands you at least $50,000 in compensation. Of course this means that App Academy is more competitive to join, but once you’re in there are some serious cost benefits!
4. Horizon’s School of Technology
Geared towards college students and recent graduates, Horizon’s School of Technology is one of the best coding bootcamps in San Francisco. Horizon’s takes a full-on immersive approach to teaching its students to code. The first eight weeks are spent learning to code and the final two focus on building an individual idea, bringing the full term of the coding bootcamp to 10 weeks.
5. First Step Coding
6. Codify Academy
Marketed as a way to “future proof your career,” Springboard offers mentorship by industry professionals and assistance with job placement in addition to coding classes. Their courses are organized into tracks like the Data Science Engineer Career Track that’s more of a bootcamp than a course, but they also offer self-paced individual courses on technology like Python as well.
