DevMountain Coding Bootcamp & CIRR: What is it and who is talking about it?

This last week DevMountain joined a coalition of leading coding bootcamps who have joined forces to solve education’s most important issue: outcomes reporting. Before last week, incoming and current bootcamp students had no true insight to questions around the majority of coding bootcamp outcomes.

That’s why DevMountain has teamed up with 14 other leading bootcamps on something we are calling CIRR. The Council on Integrity in Results Reporting (CIRR) is the industry standard for educational outcomes reporting. Every coding bootcamp in CIRR will use a unified outcomes methodology, allowing for a standardized reporting.

With CIRR, our outcomes reporting will be optimized in the interests of DevMountain students. Now, bootcamp students left with questions about outcomes can look to a resource that can be trusted.

Because the CIRR organization will create truth in advertising standards, and common definitions, documentation and validation requirements for all participating organizations, it has started to turn heads. In the wake of CIRR’s launch, it has received a ton of positive press and attention this past week.
