re: 5 Lessons My Bootcamp Didn't Teach Me VIEW POST


I've interviewed Bootcampers and I felt that each believed they knew much more than they did. Three was a difference between knowing 'eval' was dangerous and why is as dangerous.

Also, if you've Bootcamped a front end developer role, don't apply for full stack or think that your skills apply equally to the back end. Get into a company as a front end and then reskill.

When working with Bootcampers in teams, I've found that they don't often have the same analytical ability as those that have a university degree. University teaches so much more than data structures, algorithms, etc; it changes the way your brain works and that is starkly noticeable in teams. This doesn't mean that you must go to university of but be aware that you might find some tasks more of a struggle than others.
