About Coder Vox

Hey everyone! My name is Jon, and I am the founder of Coder Vox. I’m a software developer and a coding bootcamp instructor from Austin, TX.

In case you don’t know what a coding bootcamp is, it’s a short term (typical 3-6 months) educational program that teaches students everything they need to know to become an employable software developer. Topics include HTML, CSS, JavaScript, databases, and more. This is very different from a traditional computer science degree, which usually takes four years to complete and can cost tens of thousands of dollars.

So in a way, you can think of a coding bootcamp as an accelerated, condensed computer science degree (without the degree though!)

Why would people want to choose a coding bootcamp over a computer science degree? Time and money are big factors. Another really important reason is that many companies are hiring programmers who have the necessary skills, even if they don’t have the relevant educational background. If you know how to write the code and do the work, why should it matter how you learned?

However, coding bootcamps themselves can also be out of reach for many potential students, as the average cost of a coding bootcamp can be around $10,000-$20,000 depending on the region and who is offering the program.

With Coder Vox, I’ve made it my goal to make online video courses that deliver the same high quality content as my in-person coding bootcamps at a much lower price. If you are interested in learning how to code, Coder Vox will give you the best step-by-step video tutorials that you can follow from the comfort of your own home.

Anyways, In my free time when I am not writing code or recording lessons, I enjoy running, swimming, playing video games and watching anime.

I’ve worked hard to prepare these lessons and exercises, and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did making them.

See you in class!
