Not at all. They’re completely different. Java is class-based rather than object-oriented. The two languages can be integrated seamlessly, and they often exist together in applications.
So you're probably asking yourself: Which program is right for me?
Answer: It all depends!
Look at geography: No matter where you are in the country, you can benefit from an immersive bootcamp education through an online program. There are in-person programs in almost every state. View our list of bootcamps by location to see if there's one near your doorstep!
Look at culture: Just as you'd be hesitant to attend a college without touring the campus - you need to visit your bootcamp space before committing to it (even if it's through a virtual info session).
Look at outcomes: Ask the school if they have reported their student outcomes. You wouldn't want to spend 12 weeks in a program that won't prepare you for your future. The great thing about Skills Fund: We've done this for you. We don't partner with crappy programs, and all of our partners have been through our vetting process to make sure they're worthy of your time and money.
