Rockit Bootcamp teaches web design

It's a different type of boot camp; it doesn't work your body as much as it does your mind.

It's helping those who want a job in tech, specifically in web development take an accelerated learning course.

These students are in the midst of a 12-week course learning about web development.

"I've been here for a couple of months now, learning how to code," said Jessica Collins.

Collins is just one of the students at the Rockit Bootcamp, an immersive training program here in the valley.

"So the specific coding technology we're learning are for web development, so what powers the websites we see, or web applications we see on our internet," she said.

"A lot of people think that programming is a mysterious thing to do, you don't have to have a predisposition in math or science, it's just learning the language, thinking someone logical, but we teach you that, we help guide you through this process of thinking like a developer," said Director Brigg Lamoreaux.

Students say they learn a lot in a short amount of time.

"We've had great success," he said.

"Three years ago my first son was born, and I didn't want to live like that anymore," said Nir Coagn, a former student.

Nir Coagn used to work in the restaurant industry, after graduating he landed a job as a web developer.

"It has a better future, more possibilities," he said.

The campus is located in Tempe, for more information visit:
