Why Outcomes Matter

Look at any bootcamp and you’ll see a lot of data. But what does that data really mean, and how do you know you can trust it? At The Software Guild, we track how successful our students are in the classroom and beyond. Our graduation rate tells you that Software Guild apprentices from the Java and .NET/C# tracks can master the material and that our instructors are top-notch. But we also measure outcomes like job placement rates to ensure that the skills we are teaching are applicable and that our students are prepared to thrive on their own.

We believe in independently verifying our results, which is why we belong to the Council on Integrity and Results Reporting. Through CIRR, we verify the integrity of the results for our Java and .NET/C# tracks; as we collect data on our other tracks, we’ll report on that, too.


The Software Guild is proud to be recognized as a Best Bootcamp by Course Report and SwitchUp, two leading authorities on coding education. Our proven curriculum, demonstrated student outcomes, and satisfied alumni network all contribute to help us earn these distinctions.
