How It Works
- We train web developers to be job-ready in six months, using a combination of training and work experience.
- Month 1-3: Learning Intensive, classroom-based study seven days a week. You’ll live in our mansion with the other trainees and tutors and learn everything you’ll need to know as a web developer.
- Month 3-6: Real-world work experience You’ll work onsite with a client on live full stack Ruby projects, earning £20k pro rata.
- Stay in our state-of-the-art, luxuriously renovated mansion, with private en-suite rooms allocated to each trainee. Our approach combines the intensity of a coding bootcamp with the comforts of a countryside retreat.
- Following successful completion of the training program, we hire the best of our trainees on a contract basis and place them on real-world client projects, whilst giving them the support, training and guidance required to grow into an entry-level role.
- Within 6-8 weeks of the second phase, we aim to secure offers of permanent employment from our hiring partners, for all of our trainees.

Consolidate your learning with real-world work experience. You’ll work onsite with a client on full stack Ruby projects, earning £20k pro rata.
Your instructor will mentor you on-site, providing support, guidance, quality-control, peer-reviews and extra training. This makes sure that you’re meeting the client’s expectations and realising your own potential.
On top of this, our programming pairs collaborate both on-site and remotely, able to resolve issues as soon as they arise. We look closely at every commit that you make, to spot any errors and catch them early.
We partner with top Ruby teams looking for talented new web developers, which means you get access to full-stack web development project experience. It’ll help build your portfolio and take you a step closer to your first permanent web dev job.
After a successful work experience placement, we’ll find you a professional web developer role where you can expect to earn £25-35k in your first year. It might be with us, or with one of the clients we partner with – either way, it’ll be a brilliant first step in your new career.
Dan was a good teacher with a great knowledge for the content as well as the industry we were all trying to get into. Industry best practices were always prioritised to make sure we were always attractive to potential employers. The final 2 week project was a great experience with a feeling of consolidating our knowledge of the past 12 weeks and producing a product we could be proud of. This was presented to various CTOs and developers looking to hire on the final day and me and others on the cohort were offered interviews on the spot. I would say finding a job within 2 weeks of graduating was well worth the money and time I invested.Benjamin Hornsby - Rails Developer @ PharmasealWeb Developer Fast Track Rating: 5 5
I’d recommend We Got Coders very highly if you are determined and want to learn to code. It’s a great gateway into the tech industry. We Got Coders are also making a concerted effort to counter male dominance in the tech industry by advocating for and training more women. 6 months later I know Ruby and Rails development like the back of my hand, am learning new languages and working on several projects in my spare time in addition to my full-time position in some pretty inspiring areas in the tech industry.Kieran Gibb - Ruby and Blockchain DeveloperWeb Developer Fast Track Rating: 5 5
When I arrived at We Got Coders I had a lot of doubts about my abilities and lack of experience. In a very short time We Got Coders helped me turn myself from a complete novice, to a capable web developer, managing to secure a great work placement within a couple of hours of my final presentation. I would recommend this course to anyone who's serious about getting into web development!Finn Francis - Ruby on Rails Developer @ BreatheHRWeb Developer Fast Track Rating: 5 5
This is definitely a course for someone who really wants to be a web developer. The instructors really do want you to succeed. Their passion is clear to see and I never had the feeling that they didn't care about your work. They were always willing to answer questions and to give you help when you got stuck. It will be one of the most intense 3 months of your life but will reward you if you are willing to put the effort into it!Zareh Langridge - Ruby on Rails Developer @ Carillion CommunicationsWeb Developer Fast Track Rating: 5 5
This course was really fantastic. The two instructors clearly cared about our progress and were determined to show us how to be exceptional developers. As a female in my late 30s, I found this a safe and positive learning environment. As a business owner and entrepreneur it gives me great satisfaction to know that I can now confidently create well tested, well written code and I am working on some MVP's as we speak.Tamlyn Rudolph - Web DeveloperWeb Developer Fast Track Rating: 5 5
It was through Dan's professionalism, expertise, and professional contacts that I gained the skills, experience, and exposure that was required to be placed with, and remain with, HI Hostels. I can wholeheartedly recommend him and the We Got Coders experience to anyone interested in entering (or re-skilling to enter) the web development market.Jason Hooper - Lead Web Developer @ Hostelling InternationalWeb Developer Fast Track Rating: 5 5
Dan worked tirelessly to advance his students' abilities as programmers. His teaching skills and scope of knowledge are paralleled only by his passion for the subject. His energetic presence in the classroom never ceased to inspire. I would not be where I am as a developer without Dan's instruction.Kevin Bajorin - Web Developer @ Allegory LawWeb Developer Fast Track Rating: 5 5
Dan is an excellent teacher, manager and mentor. After working with Dan, I was able to work with challenging codebases, knowing that I could turn to him for help when needed. He is able to show how to solve a problem in a way that is clear and concise.Corey Trombley - Web Developer @ Keep.comWeb Developer Fast Track Rating: 5 5
Daniel is an amazing teacher with impressive deep knowledge of the development process and comprehensive familiarity with multiple frameworks and processes.Oren B - Full-time Web DeveloperWeb Developer Fast Track Rating: 5 5
I most enjoyed Dan's ability to take a theoretical concept and then design an engaging exercise or lecture that immediately made its real-world, practical applications clear.Keith Johnson - Web Developer @ ZipmarkWeb Developer Fast Track Rating: 5 5
