“With self-teaching, you feel like you start to get stuck. At Dev Bootcamp you have a structured environment with other people who are going through the same challenges you are—that really helps with the learning process."
“It was good getting to know the people in my cohort—it simulated a real work environment because you had to deal with a lot of different personalities. I like how DBC prepares you for that right away."
