Hello! I am interested to find out if Hack Reactor is suiting me. I am looking for some solid programing education which would allow me to take off new career path in case I manage to finish the course. I plan to study only remotely and hence wonder if in that case Hack Reactor is worth the money or it is better to evaluate other bootcamps as well. I am not sure if my target is only web development but I would definitely need to know that as well.
By the way - is there a good coding bootcamp in Zurich, Switzerland?

I am always a bit hesitant when it comes to remote software engineering programs. I think they teach you quite a lot, but they are missing one key benefit of attending a school in person, networking. The best way to get a job in this industry it to have strong networks of people that already work in the industry. Whether you decide to go with a remote course or an in-person one, make sure to find the time to build your network. Work with others on projects and learn how to collaborate on a large project. These are skills that you will need to know in the industry but are not necessary a focus at a lot of schools.
I attended a school in SF, Holberton, that had both a focus on the tech skills and the soft skills, and I see how the students have had an easier time transitioning into their roles at some of the top tech companies in the bay area.
If possible, we recommend that you take the in-person course. A Bootcamp is quite heavy and the fact of being in class together with the instructors helps a lot. There are many schools with courses between 8 and 12 weeks.
The living cost of Barcelona is around 700 - 1000 euros per month and also here there is such a great weather!
