Dev Bootcamp

July 14, 2017

We are deeply saddened to share with you the news that five years after pioneering the bootcamp industry, DBC’s final cohort will start on July 17 and will graduate in December 2017. We are fully committed to providing our final cohort with the same comprehensive, high-quality teaching and career support they expected when signing up for DBC. Winding down DBC campus operations has been a heartbreaking decision. Since launching in 2012, we’ve been striving to find a viable business model that would enable us to further our vision of high-quality, immersive coding training that is broadly accessible to a diverse population, while also covering the critical day-to-day costs of running our campuses. Ultimately, we have been unable to find a sustainable model that doesn’t compromise on one of those fronts.

We are in the process of reaching out to all of our enrolled students this week. If you haven’t heard from us yet, we apologize - we will be in touch as soon as we can.

While we’re extremely disappointed we couldn’t make this work, we’re also celebrating the work we have done over the last five years. We want to remember and appreciate the lives we've touched and the influence we’ve had: igniting the bootcamp industry, leaving a lasting legacy of more than 3,000 skilled developers, advocating for greater diversity and inclusion in tech for underrepresented populations, heightening awareness of truth in advertising among bootcamps, creating greater focus on apprenticeships as a model for meeting employer needs, and highlighting the value of soft skills training. With our employees, alumni, and partners, we shaped an industry and helped create a movement. We are grateful to our awesome DBC team for their hard work, passion, and commitment to students, and thankful for the enduring impact our alumni community continues to make on the larger tech industry.
