They're not even advertising 3 months now?
I'm looking forward to the 10 minute courses.
Dude 1: "Man I've moved on from C++, it's horrible."
Dude 2: "I didn't even know you knew C++."

...seriously though, the problem is there's people that buy this crap. Once spoke to someone who said he knew all of the above at expert level, and he'd been on a fast track course for 2 months. Next he was moving onto SQL, and he reckoned a week later he was an expert in that too 🙄
"Justify employers' search for cheap commodity coders in 3 days. Click here to find out how to become a part of the problem."
