Hello folks, this question is for those of you have been involved with developer bootcamps,

I'm considering going to this one - http://www.deltaprogram.us/index.html
And now for some context - I had until last year worked as an Android developer. I lost
the job for a couple of reasons, one of them was underperforming. I am self-taught, and my
skills and understanding of the system were not keeping pace with my colleagues, most if
not all of whom came from academic CS backgrounds. I know some things, but there are other
basic things about Android and programming that are missing from my repertoire.
Have you been though a developers bootcamp, or some other intensive learning environment
like a bootcamp? If so, did it make a difference for your career?
If you are in a position to evaluate developers for hiring, have you encountered candidates
that have been though programs like the above, and does it seemed to have helped them?
Thanks in advance for your responses!
