Discussion on: What things have you been made to feel guilty about in the course of your career?

That's very heartbreaking. I'm curious with the future wave of bootcamps how this has evolved.

Do you have any advice for someone going through something like this? (I know a few people encountering judgement as a bootcamp grad). Thanks!

I wish I did. I have a feeling the mentality will change as the next generation become managers; the stigma will cease to exist as their friends, coworkers, or even they themselves are graduates of bootcamps.

My story is quite similar. I did not enter a college, followed a fuckton of tutorials instead. I haven't found any (affordable) bootcamps either.

From my experience, this is all I can say: do the thing and brag about it on GitHub. When you lack a degree, your experience and knowledge is all you can offer, so prove you are able and trust in yourself.
