Discussion on: Do they teach "pointers" in bootcamp? Should they?

There are some competitive programming bootcamps they must be teaching it.

And in higher level languages we can't directly access pointers but we generally use the concept of a reference, which is mostly implicit. So I guess going by the language is good enough. Pointers are really powerful in C and C++ but in Python or JS, we don't care a lot about them, pioneers of these languages don't want us to be bother about it.
