    Is this bootcamp good

    So i really want to learn code and found this schoolofcode uk place but you either pass to get in to the course or you dont. What do you guys think? Also i sent an email to them and got one reply but now they've stopped replying to my emails. And i know i wrote a web development thread but that was for something else that time

    Bootcamps are a scam

    If your goal is to learn enough to code on your own there are plenty of resources
    If your goal is to get a job gl with a bootcamp

    Go with one of those bootcamps that are free if you dont land a job in 6 months.

    Some advice from a fella which is probably on the same path.
    Paid bootcamps are scam as Dave said.

    What I'll advice you to do :

    Start watching some Youtube tutorial series, if you feel like they aren't good enough ( not in order,etc.)

    1. get some paid course (torrented/or pay it), since you said you were interested in web development follow this path:

    HTML/CSS:
    https://developedbyed.com/p/the-crea...l5-css3-course

    JavaScript:
    https://codewithmosh.com/p/javascrip...-for-beginners
    https://codewithmosh.com/p/object-or...-in-javascript

    React:
    https://ui.dev/react/
    https://ui.dev/react-hooks/
    https://ui.dev/react-router-v4/
    https://ui.dev/react-router-v5/

    2. Learn how to use Git and Github

    https://try.github.io/
    https://www.atlassian.com/git
    https://codewithmosh.com/p/the-ultimate-git-course

    3. Learn to make real projects

    -Udemy
    -NomadCoders
    -Just try to imitate what others have done (clone)

    4. Create a dope ass resume

    Create your resume then go on /r/resumes and get some additional advice/tips to improve it.

    5. Prepare for the interviews
    -https://www.educative.io/courses/grokking-dynamic-programming-patterns-for-coding-interviews
    -Cracking the Coding Interview: 189 Programming Questions and Solutions (it is a book, pdf is available)
    -leetcode (go solve those damn ass questions)

    Also while you are at it, check this youtuber : https://www.youtube.com/c/JoshuaFluke1/videos
    This is my bias opinion , but I do feel he is quite honest with how companies/interviews works.


    Oh also forgot to mention, check out https://www.theodinproject.com/ if you want to learn it free.

    look up lambda school's or bootcamps that dont charge until you are hired for a >50k salary job. these are very common and are a good direction if you want to get into programming, the only downside of these aggressive bootcamps is the upfront initial costs sometimes.

    they're definitely not a scam, learning to code out of a college setting is more relevant and efficient than ever.

    They're a great way to get into software engineering. I know people hired out of bootcamps, but usually they have some other qualifier (e.g. degree) than just some guy who was flipping burgers and then suddenly decided he wanted to be a software engineer.

    Don't expect a miracle though, they won't make you a good coder, they'll teach you basics and teach you how to pass an interview. I think 70% of people get jobs from it. SWEs are in high demand, bootcamps help fulfill that demand.
