I didn’t do a bootcamp. I studied full time for two years. That’s roughly the same amount a CS student would study computer science at a university once you subtract out the time spent taking GenEd classes and having summers off.

I don’t need Advanced Discrete Math II to know how to write a “while” loop properly.
