What is Code Chrysalis?
Code Chrysalis is a Silicon Valley-style coding bootcamp in the heart of Tokyo that helps people become full-stack software engineers in just 12 weeks of full-time study.
It is the only coding bootcamp in Asia that supports students long after they graduate, helping with everything from crafting the perfect resume, to teaching you how to prepare for interviews in the tech industry.
Around 90% of Code Chrysalis graduates go on to find employment after they finish studying. Previous graduates have received offers from the likes of Google, Mercari, Line, Sony, Rakuten, and more.
Why do a coding bootcamp in Japan?
Good software engineers are in high demand worldwide. Not only is working in tech exciting, with no two days the same, but software engineers get to exercise their problem-solving skills, tap into their creativity, and they are constantly learning and innovating.
It’s a great career for those who like working remotely and it’s one of the few work options in Japan where you do not need a high level of Japanese language skill.
By completing a coding bootcamp with Code Chrysalis, you’ll be able to gain the essential technical skills and knowledge you need to thrive in a competitive job market, without spending years studying for a degree.
This makes a coding bootcamp perfect for those wanting a career change – even those without a technical background. In fact, most Code Chrysalis students (63%) do not come from the tech industry, and have diverse backgrounds including teaching, accounting, business, and music. The vast majority of graduates (81%) land their first jobs as software engineers, with others finding jobs as developers, project managers, and front-end engineers.
Not wanting a career in tech, but interested in learning how to code? Doing a coding bootcamp in Japan with Code Chrysalis is a great option for you too. You’ll gain the foundations of programming and learn to think like an engineer, regardless of what your end goals are.
