The demand for developers in Hong Kong is ever-increasing, partly due to rapid technology improvements and growth in the tech ecosystems (60%+ growth in start-ups and small internet businesses in 2016). Larger tech companies need skilled IT professionals to upgrade their systems to the current frameworks to ensure better security and usability for their systems while budding entrepreneurs need quality talent to build the infrastructure for their business needs and services.
Unfortunately, the usual higher education establishments and universities cannot supply enough professionals to cover the demand and employers are left with a huge problem filling up their teams with the right candidates. Taking a Computer Science degree from a university will take you anywhere between 3 to 5 years and costs between HK$90,000-HK$265,000 per year. Four years later you'd have graduated with theoretical skills and minimal project experience required in a practical development environment.
Upon completion of a coding bootcamp, graduates can typically expect to land a development job within 3 months due to the high demand of the industry with an average salary increase of 38% and a higher job satisfaction. Additionally, graduates from these bootcamps statistically make a higher salary than traditional university graduates due to having more relevant practical knowledge. In the industry, the source of education matters less than the ability to write good code.
