The few, the proudly employed, the coding boot camp graduates
Matt Jensen had a plan to land a job as a coding developer in the computer industry. He would first earn a bachelor's degree in information systems, which would immerse him in business management, coding language and computer security.
But things didn't turn out as he hoped. Despite the time and expense of a four-year degree from the University of Utah, he still didn't feel qualified.
"I was working full-time while I was attending school," said Jensen. "I didn’t have the opportunity to do an internship. Because of that I thought I needed to get some more hands-on experience because I want to become a Web developer. That experience that you get in the university just doesn’t give you enough of that hands-on experience that you need."
