Discussion on: What's in a Software Dev degree anyway?

I don't think this is pedantic at all. Honestly, this is a great question. I think bootcamps have a lot of potential and I hate that so many of them fall short because their goals are in the money and not the people.

This software dev degree happens to be more Java-based. Much to my dismay, the first course is the only one with Python. Of the 8 classes, I think 6 of them require programming and actual application of code. This one is definitely not a basic CS degree. Though, it's also not a web dev degree either.

Honestly, I'd love to see some web dev degrees. I don't see why that couldn't be a thing. As long as it include accessibility, ui, ux, and the core concepts that seem to be missing from other learning material.
