The Hustle Daily - May 20, 2016:
Bootcamp grads match or beat college grads on practical skills (aka. understanding a problem, coming up with a solution, and rendering it in code). But when it comes algorithms, low-level systems, and how a computer actually works (aka. “deeper knowledge”), they do far worse.
In other words, bootcampers learn the practical skills necessary to be productive programmers but lack an understanding that college students pick up over time...
“Bootcamp grads don’t make sense for all companies.. But the significant majority of companies needs programmers to solve practical problems on the web. On this axis, we’ve found bootcamp grads totally competitive.”
Overall, Triplebyte has had “roughly equivalent success” working with both groups. And while some students might still be better served by getting a traditional CS education, they believe the best bootcamp grads are on an equal playing field once they enter a life of coding.
