Hope you had a splendid Turkey month. My wife, two kids, and I spent Thanksgiving in southern Utah.
Hope you had a fantastic Halloween. I spent last weekend in Seattle with Allan and Hunter (the other two full-timers here at Boot.
Happy All Hallow’s Eve. I hope you enjoy this month’s cover art. It might be my favorite so far.
The best part of working on Boot.dev is seeing you all make almost unbelievable strides in not only your understanding of fundamental concepts, but what you can now build from scratch.
As I’m writing this on July 28th, we’ve had 118,984 lessons successfully completed by students on Boot.
June was hot. I got sunburned. What else happened… Oh yeah, I finished the new CI/CD course!
May was a historic month for Boot.dev. We added more students to the backend learning path than we ever have in a single month before, and we’re doing everything we can to build and release new, better courses at a faster clip.
We hit some amazing milestones in April. We now have over 40,000 registered students and over 500,000 lessons completed on the platform!
We released more this last March than I think we’ve ever released in a single month before.
Learning to code isn’t easy; frankly, I’d be wary of anyone who tells you that it is.
I’m back from paternity leave! My new son is healthy, and my daughter is… busy. It’s good to be back writing code, writing courses and filming videos.
If you can’t tell from my absurd profile photo below, I’ve been having too much fun with AI art this month.
Greetings! We’re excited to announce that we’ve unveiled a brand-new cryptography course on Boot.dev. We’re convinced that this new experience is truly one of a kind.
I hope you’ve been able to enjoy some time with family! I took (almost) an entire week off from writing code, which I haven’t done in a long time.
I hope you’ve enjoyed your pumpkin spice lattes this fall, that is, assuming that you’re basic like me.
So we’re officially in a recession, and now the question is, “what does a recession mean to me as a brand-new developer?
Happy Halloween! We released a ton of new stuff on Boot.dev this October, and I’ve had a blast figuring out new mediums and tools we can use to create content.
I’m happy to announce that today we launched our new Learn SQL course! It was a ton of fun to write, but I also had a blast building the back-end infrastructure that allows students to write and execute SQL in the browser.
Vim or VS Code? Tabs or spaces? Rails or Django? The world of programming is fraught with decisions to be made.
Mark your calendar, because we’re hosting another hackathon in the Boot.dev Discord server! The kickoff meeting will be on Thursday, September 1st at 4PM MST, you can RSVP for that event here in our Discord server.
With markets in a slump, many of us are concerned a recession could be right around the corner.
🔗 tl;dr At Boot.dev we’ve launched “community insights”! Insights make it possible for our students to drop comments at the bottom of any step in our coding courses.
We’ll keep this announcement short – we’ve moved Qvault.io to Boot.dev! As you know, we’ve been hard at work bootstrapping on online computer science bootcamp.
We’re starting our first hackathon in the Qvault Discord server on January 17th at 8AM. Everyone is welcome to participate.
In our community Discord server, we have two main groups of roles you can take on as a member, earned roles and declared roles.
