What we're about

Our Mission: Bootcampers Collective (http://bcc.codes/) is dedicated to accelerating the career pursuits of past, present, and future coding bootcamp and self-taught students by empowering them with experiential learning in web development, leadership opportunities, life-long camaraderie, and the ability to write code that positively impacts small businesses, nonprofits, and the community-at-large in Colorado. BCC (for short) was founded March 2017 in Boulder, CO by coding bootcamp graduates and staff.
