Featured Review: The Web Developer Bootcamp

Aside from being one of the most successful web development instructors on Udemy (courtesy of the massive and now-classic Web Developer Bootcamp, Colt Steele runs a consultancy where he helps companies turn non-technical employees into developers while leveling-up existing engineers.

So far he’s helped train over 500,000 developers around the world.


According to his LinkedIn profile, “We specialize in creating polished educational video content, custom curriculum, and in-person trainings and workshops. We also work closely with coding bootcamps to improve their curriculum and instructional methods.”

According to Colt, graduates of Colt Steele’s courses currently work at companies like Google, Salesforce, and Square. Not bad when most Udemy courses are the cost of lunch!

Most recently, Colt led Galvanize’s (based in San Francisco) six month immersive program as a lead instructor as well as curriculum director. The vast majority (94%) of his students went on to receive full-time developer roles! He also worked at Udacity as a Senior Course Developer on the web dev team.

Since then, Colt has focused his time on bringing my classroom teaching experience to the web. In 2016 he launched one of the best-selling and top-rated courses on Udemy, the Web Developer Bootcamp course. In addition, he was voted Udemy’s Best New Instructor of 2016.

He’s known by many as a fun, engaging and knowledgeable instructor. Cute cat photos and even real-life cat cameos are not uncommon in his courses!

Colt Steele’s specialties include Python, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, Node, Java, Ruby, Rails, Angular, Vue, React, Redux, Webpack, MongoDB, SQL, Data Structures, iOS, and many more.
