Happy Summer! This month, we released our Best Online Bootcamps list for 2023, including the eight top-rated online schools. To celebrate Pride Month, we updated our post of bootcamp scholarships available for LGBTQ+ folks. And in honor of Juneteenth, we refreshed our blog post with the latest scholarships for people of color who want to attend a bootcamp. In the news this June, we saw a big fundraise for a European bootcamp, and two large OPMs reacting to the latest guidance from the Department of Education. With skills-based hiring gaining momentum, there was more news about workforce development programs (read: free technical training for you!). Plus, we’ll let you know about the 9 new coding bootcamps that we added to the Course Report directory in June.

Curious about what happened in May? Check out last month’s episode to hear our May coding bootcamp news roundup!
