This August, saw over $175M in fundraises in the coding bootcamp space! Republicans in the US shared what they would like to see in an expanded Pell Grant program, and an OPM giant, 2U, had some growing pains as it shifts to focusing on edX. Skills-based hiring continues to be top of mind for employers, so we’re shining light on the coding bootcamps that are working hard to eliminate gatekeeping for tech skills training and tech jobs. Plus, we added 16 new bootcamps to the Course Report school listings this August!
📌On Wednesday, September 7th at 1:00PM ET, we will be moderating a Live Q&A with admissions reps from 5 different bootcamps to find out how to get into a coding bootcamp. If you’re thinking about going to a bootcamp, you won’t want to miss this live Q&A! RSVP and please feel free to send us your questions about admissions so we can ask our panel!

Jess was inspired by the career change of General Assembly grad Mell. Mell pivoted from an in-person banking role in Atlanta to a remote software engineering role at Vanguard. He made this career change in his mid-30s, and has lots of great tips for anyone who’s thinking of making a career change later in their careers!
Liz kicked off our new blog series, Ask a Career Coach, by speaking with Marlene Tang, Alumni Director & Career Coach at Coding Temple, about what graduates should aim for in their second job after bootcamp. Marlene answered this beautifully, whether that means going after a promotion at your current company that you love or moving onto a new company. She even covers the salary raise that you can expect from a promotion or a new job or just doing nothing!
