Coding Bootcamp vs. Computer Science Degree

Choosing between a Coding Bootcamp and a full Computer Science Degree from a College or University could be one of the more difficult decisions you make in how you get your coding education. Both have their positives and negatives, but we feel it is important that you have all the information available in making your decision.”It’s incredible to see the changing landscape of the SD tech scene,” explains Bianca Portal, Career Services Manager for LEARN academy. “More and more hiring managers every day are learning about what coding bootcamps are and how these developers can contribute to their teams. Even better — many of the local hiring managers are getting first-hand experience with bootcamp grads during the LEARN internship program and are able to see for themselves the value in a coding bootcamp graduate.”

When it comes down to deciding which is better, the real question becomes which is better for you? Bianca points-out that “both a CS degree and a coding bootcamp education are valuable and both require a commitment to continued learning, throughout the rest of your career. It’s a matter of weighing out your options to see which one makes the most sense for you.”
