"Our two recent acquisitions, DevMountain and Hackbright, are high-quality, mission-driven software technology schools serving distinct parts of the market," said Gilligan. "DevMountain's priorities are affordability and staying on the leading edge of technology trends. They are aimed at entry-level developer positions and their value proposition will benefit from increased online delivery. Hackbright's priorities are closing the gender gap in the software engineering space through education, mentorship and community. We are thrilled to have both of these organizations within our company."Key Facts about DevMountain
