Simply because it is quite difficult to explain the concept in writing. What does it mean to have an intense bootcamp just to prepare for interviews? What's the method? etc.

I want to take the time to talk to everyone who is interested in the course. Because the concept is new, people have all sorts of questions. Can't possibly address all of them in writing. I don't have a team of salespeople and haven't spent a penny on advertising.

If you still prefer email, please feel free to send one. It's on the site. It may just take longer to do back and forth.

Thanks for considering!

Then maybe it's not such a good concept.


Or possibly because it's a new concept, which takes more text to describe. More text than what can be included above the fold, and more than what most people read attentively these days.

After all, it's an 8-week intensive course, mostly for CS grads, that grills you hard, and is not cheap. As a consumer hence, I'd highly prefer to talk with someone. Not to mention, all educational institutes have an enrollment process that needs you to talk to a human.

At some point, when it becomes more common and well-accepted, we will condense it, but it feels a little too early to do so.
