From cruise ship worker to remote web developer in just 5 months

I worked as a cleaner at a cruise ship when covid hit, and crushed the industry. So in July 2020, I started learning to code on Scrimba. Five months later, I got a job as a remote web developer for a SF-based startup. Scrimba has changed my life!

Learn faster with interactive screencasts

Our interactive screencasts let you edit the code whenever you want, just as if you were pair programming with the teacher. As a result, you will code more and learn faster.

F to the A oracle to the Q

Is Scrimba a coding bootcamp?

In short, no we’re not. We aim to offer the same value, but at 100X lower price, so there are differences. Scrimba allows you to study where you want, when you want. We also substitute the classroom teaching experience with interactive screencast, live events, and peer-to-peer help between students.

Do I get in-person help from teachers?

Getting help at Scrimba is done peer-to-peer, meaning students help and support each other, instead of teacher-to-student. This is an important ingredient in being able to charge 1% of what coding bootcamps charge.

When do the courses start?

Whenever you want. Our courses are all self-paced, meaning you follow your own schedule. Sign up and get started today if you’d like!

Do you have team plans?

Yes, please email [email protected] and we will send you a custom invoice for the number of seats you need.

How long does the career path take?

You can complete the career path in three months if you are fast. But it will realistically take you 6-12 months to reach a hireable level as a frontend developer.

I have more questions. Who can I ask?

Please join our Discord server and ask in the #general channel. There, you will be replies from both the community and Team Scrimba.
