During the last few years, coding boot camps have been popping up all over the United States. The high demand is mostly due to students wanting a more streamlined approach to their education. And depending on what kind of program you enroll in, you could end up paying less, just as much, or perhaps more than you would at a regular university studying computer science.
We aren't implying that one option is better than the other, but when you consider that enrollment in a university will provide you with the complementary soft skills most programmers and web developers lack, it's not a bad idea to consider and compare the costs of learning through a traditional university. To give you a jump start, PayScale crunched the numbers so you can see what colleges and universities currently offer the best value for their computer science programs. Spoiler alert: it helps to be on the West Coast.
