So I've been looking at some advertisements for so-called "coding boot camps". These are informal schools that teach people how to become code writers in 4-6 months. Many of these places tout their reputation and make lofty claims about high employment rates and high salaries for their graduates. I'm really tempted to try this but there's just a hint of scamishness to some of theses places. So to those who know a thing or two about the industry, can these coding shops be of any use to someone starting out? Or do they reek of dishonesty to you? Thanks in advance!
