Anyone have advice on switching from finance to either software engineering or data engineering? I want to do a boot camp but the market is so saturated it’s hard to tell which ones are actually good.

Check out the top rated on Udemy and Coursera. I'd also recommend doing research on fintech companies

Not in finance but my long time partner is currently doing the General Assembly bootcamp. He ended up picking that one because of their programming language and also because at my current company we hired 3 Devs from there and the dept head said they have the best prepared students consistently. It's the Harvard of bootcamps.

Bootcamps tend to be similar format but different programming language so look out for that and choose one that matches with the area you want to go into. I'd also recommend reaching out to some recent grads from your shortlisted list of bootcamps.

Also check out Treehouse. Way cheaper and will give you a favour of what you're getting yourself into to decide if it's for you.

Hope this helps!
