The coding forums he frequents, where people usually talk about JavaScript bugs and command line functions, were being suffocated by rants and raves on a particular topic: a coding bootcamp called Lambda School, which Allred happens to run.

“People want to think that Lambda is a scam, because they want to believe the results we’re producing are impossible.”

Lambda School is an online coding program that’s free until you finish and get a job.

The concept, first proposed by the economist Milton Friedman in the 1950s as a “human capital contract,” has been heralded by some as a market-based solution to student debt.
