When I was looking for / considering a bootcamp there was a company that actually interviewed participants during, shortly after, and a year after.
They seemed to have a fairly legitimate system set up.... but of course only a few camps participated and IIRC they just kinda faded away.
I don't remember who they were though.
@N00bPancakes The thing is... that if you ask little kids if they liked their icecream... they'll say yes. Especially - if it's that really gross purple one with the frozen chalky gum balls. It's adorable. BUT - their reviews are meaningless. Maybe people who actually work in the industry should be reviewing things instead of people who just started 3 months ago! (I'm not anti boot camp / just think it's pretty bold to just straight up make up your own awards)
@sheriffderek Thus the value of the interviews during, after, and after a year.
I agree about people in the industry... but to an extent.
We all lose perspective, and there's a shit ton of "you gota know X" and it's just rando trivia that you may or may not come upon....
"Industry vets" are just as capable of being blind.
