The problem with coding bootcamps is pretty much that their business model revolves around analyzing the skill requirements for high income jobs, building courses to re-train career jumpers to meet these requirement, then hunt for low income people with big dreams, but little patience, that can be piped through the system.

Naturally, those courses always consist of the latest hype in programming languages and frameworks, but little else. That’s not teaching how to program, that’s just teaching how to cheat past job interviews and hoping for the graduate to stay employed long enough to pay off tuition.

In other words: coding bootcamps are a matchmaking service for people with unrealistic expectations on both sides.
