Show Notes

Our guest today is Tyler Richards who was a co-founder behind Dev Mountain which is THE coding boot camp.

Dev Mountain has re-imagined skills-based education through their intensive program where new students can come in and learn how to program in just a few weeks.

Austin actually started his career with Dev Mountain and that’s where HE learned how to write code.

They’ve had over 2000 graduates and in 2016 Tyler and the rest of the team sold the company to Capella Education for $20 million.

This interview is broken up into 2 parts and today we’ll be covering the origin story, the first companies Tyler worked on, and how he ended up at DevMountain.
