We teach students how to build apps that work. Our knowledge is backed by more than 15 years of experience as instructors and consultants.
You'll learn from instructors who are full-time consultants working on client projects every day, so they know the problems you're trying to solve. In fact, many of them are also the authors of our series of best-selling programming guides.
The learning doesn't end after class—you can ask questions any time in our alumni forum.
Big Nerd Ranch's training was unlike any other class I've had. I learned skills that made me exceptionally more valuable, giving me a leg up on the competition. Since my first BNR class, I've written software used in The White House, held positions at AOL and Disney—and ultimately landed at Apple.
It’s amazing how much you can absorb when you’re freed from distractions. At our bootcamps, you will master new skills in an intensive environment—no meetings, no phone calls.
Your focus will be on building new skills. We’ve taken care of all the rest: meals, lodging and more are all included with your enrollment.
You will learn not only from your instructor, but also from your classmates. You’ll tackle tough challenges, share tips and emerge as better, stronger nerds—together. And after class is over, you’ll be a part of our alumni network.
