It can be demotivating, but don't give up, and take a look at some of your algorithm books. Or cut to the chase:
i've actually been working on learning angular for the past few weeks. i've stopped updating my github in that time since i'm just doing basic stuff, but once i finish some more tutorials and documentation i plan on building an angular project to display on my github. are there any particular features that would really catch your eye as someone who hires programmers?
any suggestions regarding the coding interview problem? i see http://www.amazon.com/Cracking-Coding-Interview-Programming-... recommended a lot.
I can only recommend bootcamps for 2 types of people:
But for the rest, I think you're better served biting the bullet and going back to school for an actual diploma or degree program.
For what a bootcamp provides, I think it's really expensive ($8600-9000 over 2-3 months). Ironically, the appeal of a bootcamp is also the main flaw of a bootcamp: time. For people who have no tech background (which is the main target demographic of bootcamps), you're essentially cramming all these tech concepts, languages and frameworks in 2-3 months. Are you going to retain all of this information 6 months later?
When you graduate from a bootcamp, you're competing with CS graduates, diploma students who had years to hone their skills. Give yourself an honest assessment and ask how you'll do against them?
I highly recommend going through a book called: Cracking the Coding Interview
These are the type of questions that the top companies will ask. Good luck with your pursuit!
Looking at your post and your other replies in this thread, I feel like you simply don't do that well in coding or technical interviews.
Now, I'm IT, not development, but a few people I've met swear by this book:
Buy it or find a PDF and get cracking :)
I strongly recommend Cracking the Coding Interview and The Algorithm Design Manual .
