Here is more information on how they judged:

To create this list, we considered immersive (full-time, in-person) web and mobile development bootcamps around the world. In past years, Course Report had only published an alphabetized list of select bootcamps; the 2020 rankings are calculated using an internal calculation that considers each of the following factors (in order of importance):

  • Alumni + Student Reviews: Students and alumni have left more than 18,000 reviews on Course Report. We consider both quality & quantity of bootcamp reviews, and particular weight is given to Verified Reviews.
  • Transparency Around Career Outcomes: Particular weight is given to schools that have published CIRR outcomes within the past year, though schools that self-publish outcomes are also given attention.
  • Salary-Based Financing Options: Additional weight was given to bootcamps that align their own incentives with those of their students by offering job guarantees and/or income share agreements and/or deferred tuition.
  • GI Bill Acceptance: Whether a school is approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs to accept the GI Bill.
  • Vetted Lending Partnerships: Whether a school has been vetted and approved to work with reputable financing companies like Skills Fund and Climb Credit.
  • In addition to the above factors, we considered a school’s operation time, number of campuses, selectivity in the application process, caliber of career support, and commitment to diversity when ordering this list.
