The Best Coding Bootcamps In Scandinavia

Scandinavia is a great place to work, and web development and data science are some of the best industries to work in at the moment. One of the best ways to get started in software engineering and development is with a coding bootcamp. So let’s look at the best coding bootcamps in Scandinavia: Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Oslo.

Demo day at Le Wagon.

Le Wagon

Le Wagon is one of the most popular coding bootcamps in Europe. It offers web development and data science courses in the three Scandinavian cities: Copenhaguen, Stockholm, and Oslo.

Le Wagon’s web development stack relies on Ruby and Ruby on Rails.

This is unfortunate, as Ruby & Rails are not trendy technologies anymore, and many believe this tech stack is already out of date. Instead, many companies nowadays implemented full JavaScript stacks powered by Node.js.

This means that you may struggle finding placements upon graduation. I know personally a handful of graduates who did not find jobs after their Le Wagon program. Some of them even did another bootcamp thereafter to further improve their coding skills.

On the other side, Le Wagon also offers data science bootcamps where they teach Python, which is the leading technology in data science and data analysis.

Course fees range between 6,500 and 7,000 EUR or the local currency equivalent.

Salt (School Of Applied Technologies)

If you are looking for a turbo-charged coding bootcamp with excellent career prospects, Salt is most certainly the best option available. Look no further.

Salt is one of the most unique coding schools in Europe. Thanks to its highly selective admissions process it manages to boast the best career placement statistics in the industry.

Led by tech experts, Salt offers one of the most complete web development training programs, offering two tech stacks: JavaScript, and .NET.

JavaScript is the more polyvalent stack and can find you jobs anywhere, whether a 3 people startup or a 50,000 people corporation. On the other side, the .NET stack is an enterprise-focused stack, and thus more appealing to larger companies and systems.

One of the major competitive advantages of Salt versus other coding bootcamps is that the course is free of charge for successful candidates. In addition to that, you’ll get a one-year contract upon graduation. You’ll be hired straight out of the bootcamp. Hard to believe, but it’s true.

Thus, if you graduate, Salt will hire you directly as a junior web development consultant. The salary is 30,000 SEK per month in Sweden or 40,000 NOK per month in Oslo. This translates to roughly 36,000 to 48,000 EUR per year. Not bad, eh?

Other Bootcamps In Scandinavia

In addition to Le Wagon and Salt, there are a number of other bootcamps that you may want to take into consideration.

Have a look at alternative bootcamps such as Craft Academy (Stockholm & Gotheburg), or Nod (Stockholm).

Final Notes

We have looked at the best coding bootcamps in Scandinavia. Whether you want to learn web development or data science, Le Wagon is a good choice. Alternatively, if you are a competitive candidate, apply to Salt, as it offers the best career prospects with no tuition fees.

In conclusion, Scandinavia is a good place to learn to code and to work in software development. Start learning to code today!
