Learn to code in San Diego

San Diego coding meetups

Learning to program on your own can be pretty difficult. Thankfully, Thinkful hosts weekly coding workshops in San Diego so you never have to code alone. We’re currently based just north of downtown in Little Italy and are actively planning our first meetups in other locations around the county, too. Our workshops teach the fundamentals of HTML/CSS, JavaScript, and jQuery while our tech talks give local tech professionals the opportunity to share their experience and knowledge of the industry.

Students enrolled in Thinkful’s immersive data science and web development programs also have access to exclusive networking events, advanced workshops, and most importantly, access to a lively community of developers, data scientists, and career coaches dedicated to helping them launch their tech careers. Entering the San Diego tech industry has never been more accessible.

Tech Coast

San Diego Tech Scene

San Diego’s tech industry is booming, and it’s no longer just fortune 500 companies like Qualcomm and Sempra Energy that call the county home. From downtown to north county, numerous established software and biotechnology firms are growing their tech teams. Add startups to the mix and you have a thriving, multi-faceted tech industry with a growing need for tech talent.

To keep up with the demand for developers, San Diego’s coding bootcamp industry has also experienced a high level of growth. Built around 1-on-1 mentorship, Thinkful’s Web Development Bootcamp is the only program in San Diego County that guarantees graduates jobs as developers, and that publishes third-party audited outcome stats.

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.
