Discussion on: What Bootcamp did you attend and would you recommend it?

I'm not a bootcamp grad myself, but I've taught a couple different programs at General Assembly. I can't give context on student experience, but I can on stacks!

When I taught the fulltime web development program on campus in DC, we taught frontend fundamentals (HTML/CSS/Vanilla JS) as well as workflow (Git/CLI/text editor). Then, we did backend in JS with MongoDB and Express. After, we moved to React. We wrapped up with a Python, Django, and PostgreSQL unit.

I also taught a few cohorts that were just fullstack JS, and a few that were with Rails instead of Django.

Can totally answer any questions from an instructor standpoint, and some of my former students hang out on here, so maybe they can give some context from that perspective!
