Do you have a fair amount of money and time, and learn well under rapid time constraints? If so, a reputable bootcamp could be a really good option for you. I would love to have had the option to go to bootcamp and speed up the learning process, but the time constraint is too brutal. Self-taught CAN work well, but you need a lot of structure to not wander whilst learning and determination, since the job search process is very trying.
If you want to learn web development, you should NOT get a masters since that would be overkill, and the curriculum would likely not be relevant, or up to date.
All very good points, Michael. Time is my biggest worry for bootcamp (and $). Whereas self-taught you have all the time which is a blessing and a curse. If I have all this time given all that I do outside of work, it's great. But I feel it's only going to slow me down to do that.
