Are coding bootcamps the next higher ed bubble to burst? - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

Bloomberg examines the bubble-bursting potential that surrounds coding bootcamps, which some officials say once offered access to in-demand computer science jobs at a fraction of the price of a college degree, but are now being frowned upon by premier companies like Google. California-based Coding House was shut down by the state's Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education last month, amid charges of falsified job placement rates and a multitude of allegations that graduates were unprepared for basic interview questions from computer programming firms. Coding bootcamps will graduate about 18,000 students this year, triple the number of graduates from two years ago. Representatives from multiple firms speaking with Bloomberg say they all but disqualify applicants from the hiring process who list bootcamp credentials on their resumes. http://www.educationdive.com/news/are-coding-bootcamps-the-next-higher-ed-bubble-to-burst/432343/
