DevBootcamp: A Tribute

DevBootcamp: A Tribute

First, we would like to acknowledge DevBootcamp for being one of the pioneers of web development bootcamps. They, along with a handful of others, have changed the education industry in the same way that Steve Jobs changed the mobile phone.

DBC is the reason code schools are called “bootcamps.” First cohort graduated in SF in 2012 – eons ago in internet time. End of an era. –@sarahmei

The Impact

From Stack Overflow Developer Survey conducted in 2015, 92% of the developers surveyed identified as men. DevBootcamp opened a path for anyone willing to learn, regardless of their professional background, and has helped to close the gap between men and women in the industry.

Core Belief

The core principles on which DevBootcamp was founded have informed Coding Temple’s vision of offering a program for students looking for an alternative to traditional education, as well as providing opportunities for students from diverse backgrounds. 

We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to DevBootcamp for lighting the way for Coding Temple. It has been our honor to push our students to realize their dreams of becoming a person who can say: “I built that”.

One graduate at a time, we’re working to produce great programmers, who will, in turn, build great companies.

The Future

The announcement of DevBootcamp’s closure shouldn’t raise concern over the validity of programming bootcamps as a whole.  We’ll continue to adapt, and find ways to provide value to students and employers.  Shereef Bishay (Learners Guild) and Jesse Farmer (CodeUnion), both are Co-Founders of DBC, have since launched separate startups in the educational space with vastly different approaches trying to solve the same problem in the industry.  The momentum is still there.  The desire for change grows.  The movement will continue on.

The skills and experience that students achieve at Coding Temple takes them a long way. We offer small classes, so students are able to have a more one on one interaction with our teachers. Our curriculum is designed to make students feel confident and be successful in the workforce once they have completed our course.
