re: What's your opinion on Coding Bootcamps? VIEW POST


I came into development a long time before coding bootcamps were a thing, but I've seen many bootcampers apply for internships at companies I've worked at. Most of them were promised they'd immediately would have a job when they'd be done but mostly it didn't work out like that, resulting in them applying for internships to gain more experience. Not that doing an internship is a bad thing, but not everyone can afford that, especially after spending a couple of months paying for bootcamp.

In a positive note I've been mostly pleasantly surprised with the skills of these bootcampers. The only thing they lacked was a sense of direction.
