Coding Bootcamps Instead of Computer Science Degrees

Coding Bootcamps Are Replacing Computer Science Degrees

Roshan Choxi | November 8, 2015

In recent years, a growing number of coding boot camps have helped address the large gap between available software engineering positions and qualified candidates to fill them. Coding bootcamps have been so successful that observers have wondered whether these programs are beginning to replace traditional college computer science degrees. For example, Aaron Skonnard, the CEO of Pluralsight, argues in Edtech’s Next Big Disruption Is The College Degree that college degrees will be replaced by “a new array of modern credentials that are currently gaining mainstream traction as viable measures of learning, ability and accomplishment.”
