I went to a state University for computer science but never finished. The only way I can go back is if I were spend 2 years on more borrowed money (if I can borrow anymore). I just recently read about coding bootcamps.
So, this whole concept of coding bootcamps is new to me. Is pursuing a coding bootcamp worth it? Would it really secure a job quickly? How quickly? 3 to 4 months? Anyone with personal experience and testimonies? Awesome or bad? How much money do you make? Only $40k?
I was thinking of quiting work and devoting 2-4 months to one of these bootcamps (preferably the cheapest, like free or deferred payment).
Which bootcamps should I avoid if I want to find good work ASAP or to be taken seriously? My guess is that I should take one that has a very good or decent mentorship, but IDK.
Which bootcamps are the best option? How about for free or deferred payment? I have zero money now and will need to save money in order to fund 2-4 months of attendance.
How difficult is it to go through these? The university courses in programming were actually pretty easy.
BTW, I had quit college for awhile due to personal issues and financial aid deficiencies...not academic or intellectual incompetence. I am 100% confident I can succeed in any of these bootcamps.
Does anyone have any good tips or suggestions on pursuing this path? What is your experience and background in computer science or programming?
Any opinion's from computer science BS programmers who have personal/professional experience with coding bootcamp graduates?
Any idea what kind of work and its salary this training will give me? What types of advancements?
