I took a course in a coding bootcamp over 4 years ago which piqued my interest in programming and computer science ultimately leading me to choose a Computer Engineering major starting just this academic year. However, the content typically delivered by coding bootcamps is superficial - I learned how to create simple websites and games using HTML5+CSS3+JS by the end of the course but remained completely oblivious to how arrays and strings in JS work, let alone common problem solving techniques such as recursion.
My advice to complete beginners in this field - feel free to learn the basics by joining a coding bootcamp but if you want to progress any further in your understanding then you should leave it ASAP and do some independent study.
That's great that it was what you needed to pursue your degree. Good luck with your studies!
