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

Based on what I've heard from others, I feel like any program would be fine if you're just starting out. I imagine it'll always be a 'how much you put in is what you get out' type of situation when it comes to coding.

With that said, I was a General Assembly student in their fullstack program. We learned the 'relevant/popular' technologies at the time and I was lucky enough to have @phlco and @annarankin as instructors. They were experienced educators and made all the difference. I wasn't impressed with GA"s effort to connect students with job opportunities and I'd say the majority of my classmates did not find work through that avenue.

I think the most important thing GA did for me, was teach me how to teach myself.

I bet @juanita has some thoughts around this. She is a bootcamp grad and now manages bootcamps.

This is exactly what I am looking for! I figure most of what they all teach is relatively similar, but things like the instructors and support after bootcamp can make all the difference. Thanks for taking the time to write that up!
