There's this negative stigma about bootcamp grads, especially in the Bay Area, but there are some really great developers coming out of bootcamps and it would be great to know which companies don't throw out your resume simply because of a non-traditional form of education.

  • Most of them will hire you, the question is whether or not they will hire you for your first job. Similarly to people who are self taught in other ways, getting your foot in the door for your first job is hard, but do well in that context and you should be good to go, degree or no.

      One would think... I still have an obscenely terrible apply to response ratio.

    Someone just asked me yesterday for a Bootcamp recommendation in the Bay Area? Certainly I’ve no idea, as the only bootcamp I enrolled in FB mandatory one! The candidate looks for training on two areas: front-end (CSS, JavaScript etc) and Data Science (R, Python etc).

      Learn front end on your own. DS is much harder. There are lots of bootcamps in that area, Galvanize and Metis maybe the largest.

    Facebook, Spotify, most large companies. The top 1% of bootcamp grads make it into FANG.
