Career question RE: IT computer science field

I am interested in getting some job training in web development/computer coding career field. I have very little techie ability but am very interested in learning. Been reading up on some of these web development boot camps that teach you all this nerdazoid stuff in 9-12 weeks.

Example http://www.devbootcamp.com

Does anyone here have an opinion or experience about such job training?

Comments regarding anyone's experience in the career field is also encouraged. TIA

Boot camps are crap. You won't remember half that shit. Experience is what you need.

You're bound to get 50 different opinions on what you need in order to get into IT, but I personally wouldn't spend the time looking at those types of courses. Just looking at the homepage makes me think "if it looks too good to be true...". Learn the stuff yourself and freelance, get certifications, or find a decent CS program. If their main selling point is getting it done as quickly as possible, it probably won't do you any good in the long run.

If that new immigration act goes through, it includes more visas for even more cheap foreign workers to be put into the job search field. So be careful.

Hmmm market flooded with experienced cheap labor doesn't bode we'll for newbies entering the field. Have to keep that in mind

I.T. is a hard field to break into. Employers want experience.

If you are starting from zero, you can't take a boot camp class and know what you are doing. It's not possible. No one is going to hire you, no matter what the boot camp promises you.

Any of the top money jobs require you to have a knack for the field and job responsibilities.You can't just take some classes and your set.

There is a lot of feedback on this question in the official I.T. thread.

Also you will most likely need to start out Temping/Contracting. Even experienced IT workers face that at times.

Several people have said it, but there's no replacement for experience in today's IT market. If you want the development/engineering side of it, find a 4 year school and work your way through. You may be able to get away with an associates degree for the sysadmin side of things. But even then you'll have to go through several years of entry level positions.
