Big Nerd Ranch built such a reliable platform that it barely needs any management; users have adopted it without complaint. The team was opinionated but efficient: when a project lead left at an inopportune moment, nobody missed a beat. They avoided red tape and got right to work.
Construction firm, CIO
The sales app produced a double-digit increase in sales per representative within the first year. Big Nerd Ranch’s key strength was their ability to really listen and build accordingly; they were very skilled at bringing product ideas to life.
Director of Marketing, Orkin Pest Control
Big Nerd Ranch delivered excellent work on time and within budget. Communication was easy throughout the project, which the agency managed capably. The finished product exceeded all expectations, and there were no significant problems throughout the development.
Big Nerd Ranch began by redesigning an Android app. The agency then developed an iOS iteration of the app and the HTML5 back-end system for the web.

I went to one of the early Objective-C/iOS bootcamps. In fact, the instructor was still editing the book while the class was going on. It was cool to help fine tune the class. It also helped Notre Dame get a mobile effort going. Up to that point, we had not focused much effort on a mobile strategy.

When I went to Big Nerd Ranch bootcamp I was a Sr. Software Engineer who had gone into management. My computer science skills were in tact but current knowledge was rusty. What BNR taught me with mobile development was HOW to solve problems and truly understand that. As simple as it sounds but HOW to properly use the docs and not just google everything. My confidence was also boosted because I was able to work intelligently with my peers and instructor. I have been to probably 30-50 training session across my career and my experience at BNR was the best of the best.
I was able to start my research lab, HealthHawks, because Big Nerd Ranch gave me the skills to build software on mobile applications. I equip medical professionals with software that they test to be able to determine if it helps clinical outcomes. It is awesome. BNR taught me how to change the world for the better, one line of code at a time.

I used to use online free courses to learn basic Kotlin and some advanced topics. It was nice to have the classroom setting, with the Kotlin Essentials course, to gain better detailed knowledge. I do feel more confident with the basics of Kotlin, and I am looking forward to taking the more advanced courses.
Android Software Engineer, Disney
I did the Swift and iOS bootcamp in GA. It was incredible and totally worth it. I had only played around and pieced together iOS apps before I went to the bootcamp. Afterwards, everything made so much more sense and I was able to create and publish new iOS apps with ease.
Carbon Five, Developer
Most complaints I hear from colleagues are that there seems to be a lack of courses aimed at experienced developers (most bootcamps seemed to be aimed at complete beginners) as well as a lack of courses that are week-long intensives! Big Nerd Ranch fits the bill exactly for this!
