Silicon Beach

Los Angeles Tech Scene

Los Angeles is home to several mid-sized tech companies and hundreds of tech startups, prompting the city's nickname Silicon Beach. Founded just a few years ago, several startups like Jessica Alba's Honest Co., Dollar Shave Club, and Snap Inc. have quickly built a name in the town and around the world. As more startups set up shop in the Silicon Beach and as larger companies, like Walt Disney Co., continue to build out their technical teams, demand for L.A.-based developers continues to grow.

While demand in L.A. for technical jobs is at an all-time high, not everyone has the skill set to get hired. That’s where coding bootcamps come into play; Los Angeles coding bootcamps teach you the most in-demand skills to get a job as a developer. From the several Los Angeles-based coding bootcamps, Thinkful LA is the only coding bootcamp that teaches you how to code with 1-on-1 mentorship and guarantees you a job as a web developer after graduation.

Key Features

Convenience and support beyond the local options.

Online

Whether you take the Flexible or Full Time course, you don’t need to waste time and money commuting back and forth. You’re free to learn wherever is most convenient for you.

1-on-1 support

In the 1980s, a landmark education study demonstrated that students who learn 1-on-1 perform better than 98% of students who learn in traditional classrooms. Work directly with an expert mentor to accelerate your learning.

Job guarantee

What if you learn to code, graduate from Thinkful, and hustle in your job search, but still don’t end up getting hired? That’s exceedingly rare, but if it happens, that’s our failure, not yours… we'll pay for it, not you.

Verified job stats

Education is built on trust. We're transparent about how our students perform. It's essential for you to have all the facts to make the right decision.

Los Angeles coding bootcamp scholarships
