re: What's your opinion on Coding Bootcamps? VIEW POST


Nice! The problem I have with boot camps is that they don't set the right expectations. This particular boot camp still has a lot of horror stories from friends who've taught there. I'm glad to hear that your experience was positive.


I totally agree. They told me they have a 80% hire rate, and I don't think 80% of my classmates have a job in software now. I doubt 50% do. I had a head start on many of them, and have continued to learn every day since finishing.

I was also privileged that I could afford to take the time off to do this full time, and be out of work for 6 months (3 month bootcamp + 3 months job hunting). Not everyone could do that, so many had to go back to work wherever they could.

Sorry to hear about your experience. On the bright side, we have a great community ready to help. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything.

My experience overall was great, and I'm now gainfully (overly, actually) employed. All is good, and I wouldn't have been able to do any of it without communities like DEV :D
