"While going through bootcamp I never looked at a massive code base."

Yes, I wish this was a skill I was taught in school!

I did a CS degree and also never saw a code base even close to the scale of things I work with today. In fact, many years later, I got a survey from my university asking how they could improve the CS program and that was my response - that I know the degree is more theory-based, but being able to navigate what seems like an overwhelming code base is important for most real-world programming.
