I am trying to decide on a "Bootcamp Prep" course and am at a crossroads. I know there are many free options online, but I have learned that I need the structure, accountability, etc. of a classroom environment to succeed. I was a remote student with Bloc's Software Engineering track and found that it just wasn't right for me, so I am approaching my learning from a different angle. Currently, I am between First Step Coding and App Academy's Bootcamp Prep courses. If anyone has any knowledge/experience, could you please share?

If you are really looking to become a software engineer, and want the structure of a program but break free from traditional education models, you may want to look into a program like Holberton. It gives you enough structure to keep you accountable, and does it all in a project based enviorment. This gives you the practical skills to understand foundatinal concepts of computer science from the ground up. I too needed structure and dealines, but I didn't want to learn in a traditional format. I was also a complete beginner when I joined Holberton, and since Holberton is a two-year school, and not a bootcamp, it allowed me to have time to nail down the foundamentals of CS.
