How I chose a coding bootcamp

With the overwhelming number of options available I’m not entirely sure why I was convinced that spending $10,000+ at UNC Charlotte was a good idea now that I have browsed the area. Codecademy.com is relatively cheap and you get a lot out of it but what it lacks (for me) is meeting new like minded people in the area where we just moved, an instructor I can contact, and project based learning. The project based learning is especially helpful for building a resume in my opinion since getting a degree isn’t something I’m interested in.

Why sign up for a coding Bootcamp course

A buddy of mine went to a 3 month code school in Chicago and was hired at a snazzy startup as a junior dev within a month of graduating. He had a lot of gaps in his knowledge with regards to working in an office environment (he was coming from a different industry,) so there was still a learning curve for him to get ramped up. But overall it was a great “turbo boost” to his career change

Minecraft & Rainbows

I hadn’t a clue how to actually develop anything in JavaScript from scratch which left me feeling pretty down about it all. Bored, tired, and frustrated I decided to do something about it. I bought the next book on my amazon list for learning code in Minecraft thinking worst case scenario “I have something to play with my son when he wakes up”.

Today I Learned:

D4 – working on those http://freecodecamp.org certs. Started and finished html and now working on CSS. I just want to get those parts over with ASAP so I can get back to javascript! #100DaysOfCode

Comment

D4/100: Does anyone actually use the hsl() feature of css when developing sites? Asking for a friend. I feel this property would only be used when making like a swatch with js – what am I missing here? Why not just declare explicitly?

Comment

Just starting out? Want to join an active study group? I created a slack space to share projects related to css, javascript, html with a small group of motivated individuals. Gimme a follow & we can learn together on the #100DaysOfCode then shoot me a DM for the invite.

Goal for day 3 – Learn CSS grid – https://mozilladevelopers.github.io/playground/css-grid… – https://gridbyexample.com/video I have had such a hard time learning flex & I think css grid is going to be amazing. Day 4 – I’m going to ‘try’ to replicate a site from scratch with grid – vote on which one! #100DaysOfCode

Comment

D2: Bootstrap: https://youtube.com/watch?v=hnCmSXCZEpU… from @designcoursecom – made the flex box finally make sense with responsiveness I don’t like #bootstrap 😱I said it. I don’t see how it can really save time when WP is so much faster for prototypes – what am I missing? #100DaysOfCode

Comment

Day 1. Great video about how to write CSS/HTML from scratch based on a UI/UX design over at https://youtube.com/watch?v=8gNrZ4lAnAw… from @designcoursecom#100DaysOfCode

@unccharlotte what's with the scammy, shifty pricing, & high pressured sales over at #codingbootcamp? Note the diff in pricing from emails just days apart from your counsellors? I think I’m going to explore other options because this is a BIG red flag. #UNCC #beware pic.twitter.com/ip6oB4TONR — drewlearns (@drewlearns2) August 14, 2019
