Why whisk students off to a quiet, retreat location for Bootcamp? Two words: No distractions. Whether you choose to learn at the Ranch in Atlanta, Georgia, or Epe, Netherlands, you’ll be completely immersed in learning. And one step closer to Nerdvana.
Big Nerd Ranch
Atlanta Georgia, USA
Historic Banning Mills
The original ranch (well, after the first one burned down), our Historic Banning Mills location is like no other. An hour southwest of metro Atlanta, it’s quiet, cozy, and offers up spectacular views to inspire the big thinking every Nerd strives for. You’ll find our classrooms in the main lodge, where a charming simplicity keeps everyone supercomfy and super-focused. After class, mosey a few steps down the path to your private cabin, where you can hang out on your balcony or join your fellow students around the fire pit for a late-night chat about life, love and code. (Unless, of course, your class is in the summer, in which case hiding in your air-conditioned room is perfectly acceptable.) When it’s time to turn in, your comfy queen-sized bed will help you catch the z’s you need to be refreshed for another day of intense learning.More on Historic Banning Mills >
Big Nerd Ranch West
Monterey County CALIFORNIA, USA
Gain coding wisdom in a beautiful refuge by the sea. Your intensive training experience will take place in the middle of secluded California beauty that’s conveniently a little more than an hour from the San Jose airport. Locals can easily access our charming, rustic lodge from major highways, and out-of-towners will be shuttled from the airport right to our door. After a day of soaking up cutting-edge tech knowledge, get back to nature with a hike, a bike ride along the boardwalk or maybe some old-fashioned competition in a rousing game of pool.More on Asilomar >
Big Nerd Ranch Europe
EPE the NETHERLANDS
Yes, the Nerds are still mixing things up on a global scale. Our latest incarnation of European Vacation - we mean Bootcamp - is taking place in Epe, the Netherlands at a schmancy place called Villa Heidebad. Just like our bootcamps here at home, our classes abroad afford you the comfort of your own room, state-of-the-art classroom, and a tranquil learning environment. All to help you achieve Nerdvana abroad.More about Villa Heidebad >
Atlanta Georgia, USA
Okay, we’ll admit it. We’re pretty excited about the new Ranch. We’ve always been inspired by the monastic idea of retreat: quiet simplicity so that the mind can truly focus. And now we’re getting to build our new ranch around that very notion. Of course, while our new 13 acre location offers up serenity and focus, it also offers a state-of-the-art classroom for 20 students as well as fine dining and exercise facilities. Which makes it an ideal place to learn. Oh, and did we mention that the new ranch will be a quick 20-minute drive from the Atlanta airport? We think that makes it a pretty ideal location, too.
