Should a beginner join a bootcamp?

Greetings and happy Thursday!

Today, I aim to address a commonly asked question from individuals contemplating enrollment in bootcamps: Is a bootcamp suitable for beginners? The answer, as you might expect, is not a simple yes or no. Let me elaborate.

Understanding the Two Types of Beginners

The crux of this issue lies in the fact that while a bootcamp can be an excellent starting point for some beginners, it may not be the ideal choice for others. To determine whether you're a good fit for a bootcamp, consider the following categories:

Beginner A:

Beginner B:

For those in the Beginner A category, here are some widely used resources to help you transition to Beginner B:

By categorizing yourself appropriately and understanding the distinctions between Beginner A and Beginner B, you can make a more informed decision about whether a bootcamp aligns with your current skill level and goals. Remember, the journey from novice to job-ready professional is unique for each individual.
