I said it seems ludicrous. It just tastes bad, but since you asked, I decided to approximate the cost per unit/hour, and it actually costs about the same as California's public community colleges, so I guess this isn't crazy.

All the same, California's community college prices are kind of out of hand if you ask me, but since you asked, I guess I take it back, but lacking any actual accreditation or guarantee, it's unclear how valuable such programs are in the long run.

California's community colleges pay their lecturers.

Definitely not enough if you ask me :)

That said, I didn't realize that some (many?) boot camps were using volunteers as instructors. Who would volunteer for such a thing?
