Your response is super thoughtful and exactly what I came to say as well.
I think what the author is unsurfacing when he talks about job title is that his expectations around entry-level comp were inconsistent with the market.
I have seen some bootcamps use a line like, “learn to be a dev!!!, make six figures plus!!!, make it rain in your bank account!!!”. If they aren’t focusing on entry-level / usually “junior” level comp in the numbers they advertise, then I think they’re misleading their cohort.
