The Rise of Coding Schools: Changing the landscape

Many of us have heard about software engineering immersives (or bootcamps), but how much does the general public really know about this new phenomenon? The Rise of Coding Schools aims to demystify coding schools. We will describe the instructional techniques employed, and give examples of how the industry is driven by student outcomes. Attendees will learn how students can learn complex skills at an accelerated pace, and join the workforce much faster than traditionally expected. The panel will include both executives and instructors, and looks to give attendees an inside look at the industry.
