Former students say that Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak's coding bootcamp is like a $13,200 broken ebook

While it may be difficult to imagine a better sponsor for a coding bootcamp than Steve Wozniak, the cofounder of Apple and one of the driving forces behind the personal computer.

But his coding bootcamp, Woz U, has serious problems, according to a new report from CBS News, with former students complaining about sloppy errors and typos in lesson plans, pre-recorded lectures, and even hyperlinks to Wikipedia.

It's not a cheap course. The 33-week program costs $13,200, according to the report, and enrollment is fueled by salespeople — "enrollment counselors" — who are pressured to sign as many people up as possible.
