About the Book
This brief guide is a tool to help you decide whether to attend an intense, full-time coding bootcamp (you may also know it as hacker bootcamp or programming school).
It is a big leap to quit your day job, and enroll in a full-time Coding Bootcamp. Should you take the plunge? The decision to attend can be financially expensive, and personally disruptive. And there are other related questions on your mind: Does it make sense move to a new City? Will I have a job after I graduate? Who will my classmates be? Do I really want to work as a software developer? How good a developer will I actually become after a full-time program? Couldn't I just learn to program on my own?
