How I chose a coding bootcamp

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.

@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

Some cars rear doors have a security button on the jam end to turn on child lock. This way your kid cannot open the door while driving down the road.

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
