Next would be an “is it a good idea” thread.
From my wee bit of instructional background, I tend to think it isn’t.
The net educational result of “bootcamps”, where you get to cram a specific skillset into your mind in a relatively short time, and are kept busy with that for, say, a week of 8-hour days concentrating on that one subject, are generally dramaticallly bad when compared to formal courses which stretch out over a year. I know of someone who participated in a development bootcamp for two weeks and couldn’t program a calculator. Two years after that, she was enrolled in a development class that lasted a year, with two evenings per week and about one and a half hours of homework per day, and after completion, she was on her way to become a rock star developer.
It’s not for nothing that schools do not dedicate a full trimester to arithmetics, and then a full trimester to grammar, and so on – these things are ideally taken in measured doses.
The idea behind this is that you will do a lot of the mental processing required to really understand a subject during brain downtime. Some of this is conscious processing (while travelling, for instance), and some of this is subconscious. It’s what you notice when you’ve been looking at something and you just didn’t “get it” one day, and the next day it suddenly seems completely natural – as if you had an epiphany. Sure, you knew it yesterday, because you had memorised it… but the next day, you “got it”, and didn’t have to rely on rote memorisation anymore.
I’m locked down just like the next guy, and I have a pesky mind – it needs to be kept busy. So, I do this B2B thing, an anynchronous programming course, a course on Entity Framework, a course on Ableton 10, a course on ethical hacking, and as of last Sunday, a music theory course. Next to running a substantial part of the household (my wife suffered from a cerebral stroke and will almost certainly not fully recover), that keeps me busy during the day, but it also makes sure I’m not overconcentrating on one particular subject. I made that mistake when I was in hospital in December last year, and I found I had to run through that course again.
If you were my son (or my grandson – yes, I have three of those), I’d be tempted to tell you to grab a completely different bass and do the course again, but this time give yourself at least a month to do so, if not three. I’d be interested to know if you’d then pick up things that you missed when you were course-binging.
