From my previous post, you know I am going to a coding bootcamp called Hack Reactor. However, how do you find a right bootcamp that fits you?

Each time I look into my past, I wonder why I didn’t take a computer science class when I had a chance. Well, I guess this is life! Computer science was here all the time, waiting for me to discover it…
