Discussion on: Are Web Development Bootcamps Worth It?

Good read. Thanks! How long do your typical bootcamps last?

Based on my experience here in the Philippines, typical bootcamps are cheap, last between a few days to a week, however they do manage to equip their attendees with git, and basic web development. To their disadvantage however, one can easily identify bootcamp applicants from the rest because their portfolios usually consists of a page coupled with a few, dare I say it, mediocre "projects."

Unfortunately I have yet to meet a competent bootcamp applicant. By no means does this dictate the quality of the applicants but rather by the quality of the bootcamps available in the country.
