Computer Science/Software Engineering degree vs Boot Camp

Has anyone noticed a difference in knowledge when working with people who have a 4-year degree compared to a boot camp?


Do you receive the necessary skills and critical thinking abilities at a boot camp or is it great for only learning one thing?

This is of course anecdotal and broad generalizations but boot camp devs seem to have a less holistic knowledge of software.

They are usually taught a specific stack in depth but don’t have enough understanding to know when changes to that stack should be made.
