Finding New Pastures: Big Nerd Ranch’s Next Chapter

It is with a mix of emotions that we announce the upcoming sunsetting of some key aspects of Big Nerd Ranch and the transition of others. For over 23 years, we’ve had the privilege of empowering aspiring programmers through our immersive bootcamps and books. From the iconic ranch in south Georgia to the late-night coding sessions, Big Nerd Ranch has fostered a unique and beloved community for anyone looking to grow and learn new technology.This decision hasn’t been an easy one. The landscape of tech education has evolved significantly since our inception. While Big Nerd Ranch has always strived to adapt, the current environment necessitates a more substantial shift.

What this means:

  • Corporate and Team Training: We are still supporting our corporate partners and are continuing to offer training services with the BNR name under our company Stellar Elements.
  • Bootcamps: We are not planning any future classes with open enrollment.
  • Books: We are not planning on releasing any new editions of our books. Current editions will be available for the foreseeable future but will go out of print over time.
  • Community: We understand the strong bonds formed at the Ranch. Our existing resources will still remain up for the time being, but they will begin to transition or wind down in the coming months.

A Legacy of Learning

Big Nerd Ranch has impacted thousands of lives. We’ve witnessed shy beginners blossom into confident programmers, and the stories of our alumni continue to inspire us. We are incredibly proud of the role we’ve played in shaping the tech landscape.

Looking Ahead

While this chapter for Big Nerd Ranch comes to a close, the passion for learning never fades. We encourage our students, alumni, and the broader tech community to keep exploring, keep coding, and keep pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.We are incredibly grateful for your support over the years. It has been an honor to be a part of your coding journey.
