When you start your comment with “terrible article” and then follow it up with an accusation of bias (which, by the way, was wildly off base as I’m not even loosely affiliated with a bootcamp ), that’s disrespectful. Disagreement is fine, but disrespect is not.
And, by the way, LOTS of people criticize others on the internet —and they definitely criticize me. Can I handle it? Sure. Does it make it an acceptable way to handle conversation? No. I don’t handle others with disrespect, and I expect others to treat me (and everyone else) with respect.
I am in no way *advising* others to skip college. You’ve significantly misinterpreted what I said.
What I said was that, solely from the perspective of career advice, and if you want to be a programmer and only a programmer forever, you can *get away* with skipping college — that is, you can build a career with this background. I even have a disclaimer right after that saying that this is *career advice*, not life advice. If you agree that there are plenty of good self-taught programmers, then you actually agree with me.
Why don’t you try re-reading what I’ve said with an open mind? It seems that you’ve walked in to this article under certain assumptions (like that I’m peddling some bootcamp), and walked out with the idea that I’m advising people to skip college. Neither of these are true.
 Now if you want to say that I “participate” in bootcamps, well… what? I *speak at* bootcamps, for free. Bootcamps maybe make up like 1% of my talks… and, again, they’re unpaid. I speak at far more conferences, colleges, and companies though (each of those categories *individually* significantly exceed the number of bootcamps I speak at) — and those are paid. Sorry, but there’s really no grounding for this allegation of bias.
