Think of paying for programming bootcamps

I am 38 . I graduate with a maths & computer science degree in 2003. I then worked in derivatives trading till recently. Its not gone well lately so I am considering making career change to web developer/programmer. I recently saw a advert for a boot camp that may  provide provide me with the up-to-date skills to start at junior level. Need to pay 20 hkd initially, then if I find relevant job pay 15%of salary to then  for first year. BROTHERS think is it worth it?
 Obviously I have good concepts of programming from my degree, even through it has been number of years. I am not really discipline enough to go through courses on edx etc.

Thanks.
Can reply in chinese if you like.thanks in advance.

好多年前外國D bootcamp,係雞精課程,有新編程技術,就有 bootcamp。而家,加上又係香港,呢D學店只係賣個夢比你,你靠呢D課程黎想轉型,等於信僱員再培訓之後又一片天。

In Hong Kong, no.

In Silicon Valley, yes.

How can derivative traders not succeed during the bull market cycle? Are you kidding me?

Many Hong Kong  IT wish to get into financial system sector,  but only a few success. You have so many years of such experience and now want to switch fields.  May be you shall come to work in Hong Kong.

Because of low volatility. Also other personal issues.

I have been living in HK last few years.
Not actually easy to make switch with my background and age.

I would say the golden age of a programmer should be less than 30 which can learn things fast. Especially you are talking about web programmer, web development change rapidly in recent year, eg. We have angularjs reactjs vuejs node.js. With your age, it would be hard for you to step in programmer. The trend is that if programmer cannot step in management role before 40, then their value drop. So please think about it and sorry for my poor English

I don't understand why you want to be a junior programmer as you have such a good job now

見到丁板友有好多同西腸單向交流既帖被屏蔽,甘應如何解讀?

其實討論返當時人既問題,係最正路。當時人仲會回覆,因為討論當時人既野。

啱麻對?

Low vol?  VIX just popped.  

With you background, wouldn't it be better to try get into a quant?

Quant programming is very different from web programming.
