Welcome! and rules
Joel on Software
I am usually the type to self-teach myself everything in web-development; I have never taken a class on this stuff. But I've come to realize that I have some major gaps in my knowlege of programming fundamentals and would like to address them.
I suspect that these courses don't really tell you anything more than you would learn spending the same time with a couple of books and doing your own thing. You'd also save $2k to spend on a shiny new XBox360/PS3 + games, or whatever.
I've moved this topic to here:
I would say to hell with that if your not getting some sort of cert out of it. You can find a good class for much cheaper, and for only 5 days, your paying them a boatload.
I took that course at Saint Petersburg college (spcollege.edu) in Clearwater, FL. I think it is nice to spread it out over a semester, and the $179.00 price tag (plus $40 lab fee) was much more attractive than $2000 +
