Missed any news about coding bootcamps from June 2017? Course Report is here for you! We’ve compiled the most important news and developments in this blog post and podcast. In June, we heard John Oliver and Megyn Kelly talk about bootcamps, we read about new investments in bootcamps, a number of newspapers wrote about the impact bootcamps are having at a local level, and we were excited to hear about more diversity initiatives and scholarships. Plus we round up all the new campuses and new coding bootcamps around the world.
My favorite piece was with Jeren Nomer, who was in tech recruiting and now runs career services at Fullstack Academy. She talks a lot about the mistakes made by coding bootcampers that she interviewed as a recruiter and how to correct for those.
I really enjoyed speaking with Shane, an alum from The Iron Yard. Since he graduated he has created his own music app, worked for a music app company, and now leads a mobile dev team at Bridgestone!
