An update on COVID-19

Subject to change — accurate as of 29 June 2020

We’ve now been back since level 2! On Monday 25 May, we welcomed our new cohorts on campus and returned to in-person Bootcamp delivery — safely, and with the ability to return to fully remote delivery if required to (i.e. under alert levels 3 and 4). Delivering bootcamp online did give us some ideas, though (read on to find out more)…

The safety and wellbeing of our students, team and community remains our highest priority so we are taking extra precautions to maintain high levels of cleanliness, contact tracing across both campuses, and good social distancing practices. Official updates and advice from the government can be found here

Current and Future Students

The first part of our course, Foundations, is (and always has been) delivered fully remote and online. We saw two cohorts, Pīwakawaka and Kahikatea, through a fully online Bootcamp during levels 3 and 4, culminating in our first-ever virtual graduation on May 14th! 

Our current cohorts, Kōtare and Mataī, have returned to campus for their Bootcamp. We filled our upcoming Roa and Pōhutukawa (Wellington and Auckland) cohorts in record time and are now accepting applications for August. Also...

Dev Academy Online

…we have opened our virtual doors to students across Aotearoa New Zealand for the first time ever! It has long been our dream to make our course accessible in other cities and across our regions, and we know many have been waiting for this. Our online bootcamp will have the same tried and true format with hands on coding, taught by industry professionals.

The inaugural cohort, Manaia, starts June 22nd 2020, alongside Roa and Pōhutukawa in Wellington and Auckland. Learn more or apply now for Aihe, starting 31 August.


Our coworking spaces have been re-opened from level 2. Please get in touch with your community manager if you have any questions.


Our Auckland and Wellington spaces remain closed for public events. We are holding our usual events in the virtual realm — join us virtually at our next Experience Dev Academy events, happening Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th May. RSVP here


We’re fortunate that none of our work whānau have been directly impacted. Our teams are still doing the mahi to deliver Bootcamp to our current cohorts, working on future planning, and above all caring for our amazing community.

We thank you, our extended community, for the ongoing support as we work through this time together ❤️ Should you have any more questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
