I feel there must be a lot of people in this scenario. Trying to upskill, but more formal education isn't the answer. The catch 22 of needing more skills to get a job, but needing the skills to get the job makes it hard to push forward.
The General Assembly workshops (in London) were useful to me as they were taught by those out in the real world putting the skills to use and (usually) had a hands-on project to complete. Being able to go beyond browser-based tutorials and being able to ask questions was really useful to me. I miss them now I am home in New Zealand.
The cost and time were what stopped me thinking any more about Bootcamps. It's a huge outlay, plus living costs and time off work. A good discussion starter though!
