Coding Boot Camps

Any thoughts about the value/employability of Coding Bootcamps (or similar ones, such as Cyber Security Bootcamps) for someone who wants to pivot to an IT-type field post-college?


You might be better off doing a 1 year program at a recognized/well-regarded university. If you know some coding then this is very doable. Here is an example:

I know many non-STEM majors that pivoted but most learned some coding on their own and few got certifications too. A lot of HS kids around here are doing AWS and Google cloud certifications using online materials.

Another option is to learn a specialized software/language like R or SAS and focus on applications.

Thanks! Something like that might be a great option.
