Is a Coding Bootcamp Right For You? | How Aspiring Developers Sabotage Themselves In Finding A Job


We went into depth answering 3 simple questions for aspiring developers.

  1. How do you decide if becoming a developer is right for you?
  2. How do you decide if a coding bootcamp is right for you?
  3. What are aspiring developers doing to sabotage their chances of finding a job?

I've had several staff from coding bootcamps reach out to try and get on my show. The reason you don't see me invite on too many is because most of them just want it to basically be a marketing pitch for their coding bootcamp. The reason I brought Dan on was because he didn't give off those vibes. You'll see that he genuinely just wants to help aspiring developers. I hope this helps you in your journey.
