This piece about Lambda School seems pretty damning theverge.com/2020/2/11/2113184

Maybe it's my survivor's bias, but I wonder whether or not it isn't better if pursuing a non-accredited-degree based entry into CS, being "self-taught" (or more accurately, "community taught") isn't more likely to be successful. Of course there are privilege problems with that (but there also appear to be with Lambda School); I think many of those have to do w/ availability of a community you can be co-mentored by.

That last sentence is one reason I still believe that programs like Outreachy are really important.
