I really don't know. Something that tries to condense the survey of a web development ecosystem of the year (any particular stack. LAMP, Rails, MEAN, MERN, whatever) and shovel it to career-shifting desperate folks through lectures, peer programming and group projects in 7-12 weeks. Usually run by a private education company or sponsored by tech companies. I've heard different judgments around bootcamps from different folks working in tech, so initially opted to leave it off my resume when I applied for my first gigs.
