Destination: Dev is a program that brings together students from all over the world for ten intense weeks of software development education and cultural immersion. Our students will live and work together full-time learning the fundamentals of web development and experiencing a foreign culture and environment. This tight-knight community creates a unique synergy allowing participants to venture outside of their comfort zones both intellectually and culturally.We are looking for students who are open-minded, excited about deep explorations abroad, and passionate about technology. Our mission is to empower others to impact the world and build their ideal lifestyles through software.


Our unique combination of extended travel and technology education will push you to grow in ways you never thought possible.


Live, work, and play with a supportive group of like-minded aspiring nomads and create connections that will last a lifetime.


Forget textbooks and dry problem sets - DDev is all about creativity and hands-on learning.




All of our courses include full-time live instruction, housing, and excursions within the country.

We're proud to announce that the inaugural Destination: Dev class was successfully funded on Kickstarter and is currently underway right here in Medellín!

Our Destinations



We chose Medellín as the original Destination: Dev location for a reason. This city has made an incredible metamorphosis from the violence of the 80s and 90s and has transformed into one of the most vibrant, up-and-coming destinations in South America. With beautiful scenery, perfect weather, and some of the friendliest people in the world, Medellín serves as an ideal introduction to digital nomad lifestyle. 


Starting in January of 2018, Destination: Dev will be going mobile - visiting 3 different locations in Thailand during our 10-week program. Our students will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in Thai culture in Chiang Mai, Bangkok, and the southern islands. Come and join us to experience all of the sites, smells, tastes, and incredible experiences Thailand has to offer as we explore the cities, the mountains, and the beaches.


Who Should Apply



Digital Nomads work remotely from anywhere in the world. Web Development is the perfect career to travel and work remotely while earning high wages regardless of your current location's cost of living.


Software is eating the world, and is an integral part of nearly every industry. Learning to code is an investment that will pay dividends for career-switchers, product managers, or just about anyone looking for a competitive advantage.


If you're a college student or recent graduate, Destination: Dev is a great option for you. We combine the best aspects of study abroad while arming our students with a skill set that makes them highly competitive in the job market.
