|A close friend of mine is deciding which code bootcamp to attend. Talking to graduates has been useful. But if the goal is to be a good developer that people want to work with, the most objective source of information for applicants (and hirers) is probably previous graduates' coworkers.|
If you've worked with a bootcamp grad, please take this < 1 minute survey. Results will hopefully be really helpful for a lot of people, and they'll be available for download in their entirety.
Disclosure: I have a secondary motive in that I'm a cofounder of Statwing, and I think the results of this will be a really interesting dataset to let people play around with (like the Stack Overflow survey: https://www.statwing.com/demos/dev-survey). I do in fact have a close friend making this decision right now, though.
