I definitely would go the bootcamp route, only because it gives you credentials in a matter of about 16 weeks that most jobs will hire you as a junior. When I was first starting I went to college and (in my opinion) wasted 3 years when I could've just taught myself all that for a lot less money. If college were the same price as a bootcamp it would be different but it's not and I just see it as a waste unfortunately since it creates so much debt. Developers have it really good now with bootcamps and all the websites that have self taught courses so it's much easier to go the self taught route in 2022.
