Question From Reader

Listen: 21:26

“What skills would I be lacking in the long term if I go the boot camp route compared to a CS degree? Because of the limited time I understand the knowledge between the two would be vastly different, but things like how a compiler works etc, may not be very important for getting code out the door 95% of the time, but over the long term will it hamper my growth as a developer? What are other important fundamentals a boot camp wouldn't have time to go over, but every developer should really understand for sound knowledge?"- EJ
