I am pleased to announce that the 28th episode of The Polyglot Developer Podcast titled, Coding Bootcamps vs Traditional Computer Science Degrees, has been released to all of the major podcast networks!
In this episode I’m joined by Ben Nelson, founder of Lambda School, an increasingly popular coding bootcamp and an alternative approach to a Computer Science degree that you’d typically get at a four year or more institution. The topic that we discuss is around coding bootcamps in general, not limited to Lambda School, and how they could be beneficial for new developers attempting to enter the workforce.
While I personally earned a Bachelors of Science degree at a four year university, I encourage you to check out these alternative approaches to developer education. A lot of times the education is less important than your portfolio or working skills with a technology.
