Full-Stack Java Web Coding Bootcamp
16-Week, Hands On, In-Person Course
The Career Of The Future
With software “eating” the world the need for programmers has never been greater. Veterans make extraordinary programmers. The drive, discipline and attention to detail required for success in the military can be handily adapted into coding.
Our coding school is certified to accept the GI Bill. Many of our graduates have gone on to work in cyber-security intelligence roles protecting critical infrastructure, as well as many other firms – startups and big companies alike – where Java expertise means landing a career, not just a job.

Your Instruction Team
Rob’s first hacking was on an Apple II in high school, and writing BASIC over a 300-baud modem to the district’s computer. He taught himself Pascal to do his Numerical Analysis homework while getting a degree in Physical Science with Math and Chemistry minors at Colorado State.
Steve joined Skill Distillery after over fifteen years as a Java developer, working on front and backend systems at startups, corporations, and nonprofits. Before coming to Colorado, he attended the University of Michigan on an academic scholarship, earning a degree in Computer Engineering.
After Denise received her degree in Mathematics from CU Boulder, she enjoyed a career as a software engineer in a variety of domains including aerospace, data storage, database, telecom and the financial industries.
Paul first learned programming in high school on an IBM Mainframe using punched cards in the late 70’s (1970’s, not 1870’s). He has a bachelors degree in computer science from UC Irvine and a masters degree in computer science from UNLV.
Alex started out on his path to Skill Distillery on the east coast, taking apart any technology he could get his hands on and mostly putting them back together. This passion for tinkering led to many types of work, from construction to the solar industry, though as his 20’s wore on he found himself looking for a more professionally sustainable future and applied to the Skill Distillery full-stack Java program.

Our Grads Experiences
I got hired by Google as a software engineer after attending this bootcamp. Sure, I had to do some extra self-study to pass the interviews, but this school is the reason I was familiar enough with Java fundamentals to even get past the phone screen. Even after six months at the big G, my day-to-day work is still chock full of concepts that I learned at this school. Dependency injection, exception handling, data access objects, JUnit testing, CRUD applications… the list goes on. Within a few weeks of being starting work I was adding features to a major data pipeline (written in Java) that processes hundreds of terabytes of billing data for all of Google Cloud Platform’s biggest customers. And the crazy part was that I felt confident at it.

I made my first git commit just one year ago, marking the start of a dramatic change in my career path. It was really tough and there were many times I didn’t think I would cut it as a developer, but with the help of my great instructors and colleagues, one year later I’m working in a cool industry on a cool project, and I’m stoked about what the future brings!

Students who are accepted into the Skill Distillery program have one thing in common – their passion for code. From chiropractors to bakers – and everything in between – we’ve helped people from all walks of life kick-off the career they deserve. We are also proud to be certified by the Veteran’s Administration to accept GI Bill benefits.
What kind of people are you looking for?
We are looking for a wide range of people. Our bootcamp program benefits anyone from a college graduate with programming experience to someone from a completely different industry with no experience. We teach you everything from the ground up so you don’t need to worry about the details. We are simply looking for driven, determined and passionate people looking to make a change in their life.
What prior experience do I need?
