Take Up Code helps you build skills that you can use for any programming language. This gives you the most flexibility to adapt to changes. And with technology, change is certain. You’ll be ready for it and know the fundamental skills that will help you pick up a new programming language in a snap.
Got your eye on getting a specific type of programming job? A bootcamp will teach you skills that you might retain if you start using them right away. In other words, because a bootcamp is so compressed where you have to learn everything in just a few short weeks, you won’t have time to fully lock in those skills.
So if you can find a bootcamp that matches the exact job you’re going for, and you get accepted, and you manage to come up with the huge payments demanded by bootcamps, and you can fit it all into your schedule, then maybe it’ll work out for you.
Bootcamps rely on stress and tight schedules to motivate you to retain your skills. This is like cramming for a test the night before. You might do well on the next exam. But you didn’t really learn your subject.
It takes time to learn. Our brains actually have to grow new connections and then reinforce those connections. You want to be building and reinforcing the right connections that will help you the most when you really need them.
