In 2001 we started out with not more than the hat on our head and a humble goal in our heart—teach the best damn programming class the world has ever seen.
Since then we’ve taught thousands of students a multitude of programming languages, built world-class apps, and are still working to be the best we can possibly be.
Life on the Ranch is a little bit different. We’ve got cowboy hats and VR rigs side by side. We love to teach and are always learning. And, we can’t help but bring your best ideas to their best life.
The BNR Difference
Our values didn’t spring fully formed from a corporate retreat worksheet. They were built upon organically over the years, and only written down once we realized we were already living them day in and day out.
Brilliant & Curious
We ask all the questions we can think of and come up with some amazingly innovative answers. We know that continuous improvement and adaptation make us partners for our clients.
Hard Working & Accountable
There’s nose to the grindstone and then there are our Nerds. Not only do we put our all into every project and course, but we hold ourselves to the highest standards.
Kind & Authentic
It’s simple. We like being around good people and showing them compassion, empathy, and respect. This is as true for our clients as our coworkers.
