Last Updated February 18, 2016

Are Coding Bootcamps the new "replacement" for college degrees? Or are bootcamp grads missing out on valuable Computer Science theory by opting out of a traditional CS degree? As coding bootcamps rise in popularity, they face both praise and criticism- but what is the real difference between these two education paths? Join Course Report and our expert panel (seriously, these folks are running the best bootcamps in the world) to dive into this topic: CS Degrees vs Coding Bootcamps. 

The Panel:

This webinar is perfect for future bootcampers or anyone interested in the coding bootcamp industry.

What we cover:

  • The exact differences between a coding bootcamp and a CS degree. Is the tradeoff as simple as "theory vs practice?"
  • How both education paths will impact your career outlook.
  • What are bootcamps doing to evolve and how will that overlap with universities?
  • Which jobs still require a CS degree and what employers should be doing to hire qualified bootcamp grads.
  • Plus, the panel will answer live audience questions as we chat!
