Much as I dont want to defend Bootcamps, the article is bad on many levels.
Professionals don't look at the cost of training, but the benefit and return on investment. Who cares how much something costs if you can recover the costs in a year or 2 and get a better job?
The article goes raargh raargh social justice, but blaming bootcamps for the social problems is, well stupid.
If you look at the linked articles, one of them is something like Code Academies are nonsense, and the whole article is basically Code will soon be auto generated, so programmers will be out of a job, hence code academies are nonsense. This logic doesn't even make sense, it's like Techcrunch has an axe to grind.
The whole article is a clickbait, ie, a poorly researched, poorly written article with an emotional heading to get people to click. It seems their strategy worked.
As a simple rule, I wouldn't trust anything from Techcrunch, Buzzfeed, Huffington Post and all these low quality, click baity sites.
There are many good points and articles against code schools. This isn't it.
