Hey, it’s Rick H.
I have a really interesting blog post for you today.
We are going to be talking about Lambda school and see if it’s worth it.
Before I get into here I’m here at Lambda school, I’m looking at this because earlier today in the article Lamba School aims to cash up skills untapped talent and this was posted 21 hours ago TechCrunch.
There are two things that they’ve got for them going so the computer science education of the future immersive operation for the world’s most in for a little while on to your hired there is a reason why the computer signs Department doesn’t put out as many computer science grads as they were like there’s a reason why there are coding Bootcamps there’s a reason why all of this stuff is going on and tell you what it is that reason is because it’s just difficult like it’s not easy there’s a reason why people fail and it’s not you know it has the money situation it’s cuz you know they’re not talented enough all by you won’t wear with the skill know it’s just f****** brutally hard.
That’s the honest truth it is difficult it’s not easy it is something that you have to give up your entire life to make this thing a reality and pretty much the only example that I can’t even come close to his if you I’m in the process of becoming a doctor are you wanting to become a doctor you want to go out and earn your PhD.
You this a painful road is the long and tedious path and it’s going to pretty much take a lot of effort from everybody around you to make that a reality including your family your loved ones and your community.
The world’s most in-demand careers what do you mean by ambitious individuals can you process designed to identify those were a great aptitude for a technically regardless of their background regardless of their background.
I don’t know did a small class undergoes live in training designed to meet the rigorous demands of hiring Partners courses 6 months web and software 17% of salary of for two years or $20,000 out front so let’s just say that 2 years this is going to roughly cost you depending on how much you end up making but let’s just say you go ahead and make $100,000 so that’s going to be $17,000 so that’s going to bring you up to $34,000 so you had to go and pay $34,000 for this six-month software engineering course.
I’d be saying well Rick that’s $34,000 that’s that’s a lot of cash and you don’t especially to be getting tax your first year salary down much learning a while for 6 months machine deep learning and then it goes and gives you that and this is for 6 months full-time there’s there’s a there’s actually really good reason why computer science degrees for years and there’s a really good reason what typically most people to do computer science degree take some honor complete is because it is difficult it is hard it is time consuming give me a lot of math and need a lot of physics you need a lot of other classes they need to go out and take study machine learning study artificial intelligence.
I’m talking about especially if you’re really really bright you know I would say haha you are not going to be where’s that wears a part ambitious individuals do you think you really think that cuz they’re targeting specific start with these other community members that either dropped out of college or having hard time finding a job do you really think that they you know their parents were reading to them at 6 do you think their parents were taking them to museums at nine and ten do really think that their parents were pushing them towards us science technology engineering or math at 12 13 14 do you really think that was happening or what do you think is actually happen during that time.
I feel like you’re on your privilege how much resources to make this a reality to make this a real shift in your career then I would recommend doing the hard way do CS50 online are the books Khan Academy like there’s the bunch of resources you can living do this for free. If you need hand-holding and if you need some life with you every single day in literally tell you what to do and spoon-feed you to content like a guy really going to be successful?
Here’s the deal like anybody in the tech field whatever it is they might be doing if you’re doing programming some sort of give me don’t really care what you’re doing okay whatever the hell you’re doing it is competitive it is very competitive there’s there are people out there that are putting in 17 hours daily each and every single day in day out and here’s the thing I’m most everybody that’s in the field hour shift then we go home and do another 6 hours or another 8 hours just because they love is stuff they love learning about these things they love the commitment they love the grind can you can come into that field and just you know to do this six-month program and then go off and get a job hell no even have a hell of an open to discussion.
If there’s somebody out there that can prove me wrong, I’m happy to have you in my channel happy to interview you happy to hear your story but it’s difficult it’s not easy to stop the school is definitely selling you that idea of doing this 6-month and immersive program and you’re going to be ready for a 6-figure job.
If you have any questions for me, make sure you reach out and remember that there are definitely many different ways of getting the same outcome you want.
