Coding Bootcamps: Growing the tech talent pool

Thurs 9th October, 2:30pm

Coding bootcamps have spread like wildfire around the tech centres of the world, making junior developers out of raw talent by the thousands. These programs typically run for nine to 15 weeks, scoring high post-graduate placement rates, filling a niche in IT education.

Joshua Vial explores how bootcamps work, their strengths and weaknesses, and how bootcamp graduates differ from university and polytech graduates. Joshua speaks from experience with Dev Bootcamp and launching New Zealand’s first programming bootcamp, Enspiral Developer Academy.
