Not only do you get that bonding experience, but there's so many studies that show that physically being in a classroom with other people helps you learn better. I think one of my issues with the online model for boot camps is that they haven't really updated their prices. In my view, the classroom environment is probably the most valuable thing you pay for, and there's no way they should be charging the same amount for online settings that they did when they held classes in-person.

I try and get people to take the class with a friend or family member. Technically... there's nothing stopping you from paying for 1 boot camp - and then teaching your 4 friends as you go. You'll probably learn 5x more.
