Online Bootcamps

As I do research on UX bootcamps, there seems to be a convergence on offerings:


• A job guarantee if you don't get a job within six months

• Project based

• Average price seems to be around $8000 USD

• Mentors are a core component

• Project work is individual

• Many of them offer part-time offerings

• Very process oriented


There is a varied range to time spent doing the bootcamps. Everything from General Assembly's 10-week program (way too short!) to CareerFoundry's 36-week program. Of course, the time is impacted by whether you do full-time or part-time.


As I look forward to launching another UX bootcamp into the space, I look for ways to stand out.


My personal opinion about bootcamps is they are,


An undertaking that requires one to endure intensive training on a specific topic for a quantified amount of time. You cannot go part-time to a bootcamp.

What do you want to see in a UX bootcamp?
