"You guys are just the ones that made it!"

A couple of times we've heard the argument that we're too soft on boot camps because we're just the ones that made it to the other side.

But is it true? Or are these naysayers just looking for any chance to bag on code boot camps?

In this episode we recap our own experiences with friends, students and classmates post-boot camp, as well as dig into some data from third party groups that report on job placement for graduates.

...And then in nerd minute Eddie talks about modding arcade cabinets for like a half hour.
