Coding Bootcamps Presented As "College Alternative"

houstonbofh Re:Lawnmowing Business - College Alternative (226 comments)

Of course, there are lots of jobs at $45k and a lot less at $60k. I know a lot of people with degrees working at Starbucks, or as bank tellers. I know very few good (key word here is good) coders not working in their fields. I even know some people that have begun hiding their degree to get more chances at work.

Coding Bootcamps Presented As "College Alternative"

houstonbofh Re:Lawnmowing Business - College Alternative (226 comments)

So be ready to change careers every 5 years.

We are talking IT here. What I do changes drastically every 2 years. Sometimes faster than that. Yet if you start on the bleeding edge you learn as it develops.

Coding Bootcamps Presented As "College Alternative"

houstonbofh Re:Lawnmowing Business - College Alternative (226 comments)

As someone 20 years out (and more) I can tell you that a degree is NOT required, and that a balanced lifestyle does not need management. (In many cases, management makes having a life outside of work harder or impossible.)

Coding Bootcamps Presented As "College Alternative"

houstonbofh Re:yaaaaaaay... (226 comments)

We'll end up with more brainless "web developers" who will be able to copy and paste code snippets in Javascript and Python without having any clue about how anything else actually works.

Well, that replaces outsourcing. Now what do we do for coders?

Well, a slight decrease in starting pay vs not having $100k in student loans sounds a bit better. And 10 years out it will be about ability, not what degree you have.

houstonbofh Re:Pbbbt (60 comments)

Come on... At least this is one thing both sides totally agree on and give bi-partisan support. "Screw the people" is the motto.
