PODCAST: Don’t Fear the Coding Camp Candidate feat. Nate Ollestad

A few weeks ago, Google laid down the law on coding camps and hacker schools, saying that they were not producing candidates who were up to their company’s standards.

But is this a belief that should be held across the board?

In this episode of The New School Podcast, brought to you by Udacity, host Tim Sackett and his guest Nate Ollestad dig into coding camps and the types of candidates they produce compared to top-name schools. The question, they find, is less about what type of degree a candidate has, and more about what they’re doing with it.
