Hi Jasterix,

The bootcamp I went trough aimed to make their students ready enough to land their first job and to continue learning from there.

I think that can be perfectly fine. This has enabled me and many others to launch their developer career and be quite successful.

Of course, whether it justifies spending the money is a highly opinionated debate where many factors can matter. Also the scheme of paying up front versus paying in instalments only when you get hired (how mine went).

That being said, I would not recommend a bootcamp with online classes during these corona times. Simply because you will miss out on the group experience / classroom setting.
