    Best option to become a Web Developer and experience a different culture.

    Destination Dev completely delivered what I was expecting from a Coding Bootcamp. I came to the Bootcamp with some experience working on IT and with a CIS Degree from the US, and I can assure you that I was able to learn more about coding and building applications in the past 10 weeks than in my entire 4 years in College. Despite the fact that it is a brand new program, the Director and the Instructors were always asking for our feedback and were willing to do anything in order to improve ...

    A dedicated team making it a once in a lifetime experience

    The Destination Dev experience was made with love and will be a positive experience I will always cherish. I helped run the d-dev boot camp and I am no longer part of the program due to my ongoing commitments. I make this review independently based on what I personally saw and from the students feedback which I gathered once weekly.

    Learning coding in a new country: the study abroad experience for adults!

    I attended Destination Dev because it was a program that allowed me to travel with a purpose. Learning coding while being immersed in another culture was such a unique experience and the fact that the program made us leave our homes and daily responsibilities behind allowed us to concentrate all of our attention on the curriculum which really sets DD apart from bootcamps that take place at home. Since the cohort I attended was the very first one, the organizers of the program were really i...

    Good intro to web development

    Before attending this bootcamp I had zero experience as a programmer and after 8 weeks I feel well on my way to becoming a junior developer. Just like any educational program I believe you will get out of this program what you put in. The lead instructor, Doug , is a natural teacher and our co instructor, Juanes, was incredibly well versed in front end development and always willing to sit down and work with us Juan-on-one. Although I didn't feel 100% job ready after this course, I f...

    Amazing Experience With Destination Dev!

    Destination Dev was a great program for me. Before the program I had played around with programming on online courses such as Code Academy but had no real experience and was hard for me to take out time with other obligations such as a full time job. The program helped me go from ground zero in terms of development experience and while i know I still need to continue working to improve my skills, it got me to a point where I feel more than confident to work on my own. It would have been mu...

    Destination Dev: Look somewhere else to learn programming

    This is a detailed and honest review of the Destination Dev programming bootcamp, which I hope will spare others the negative experience I encountered.  

    There are 4 main reasons why you should look somewhere else to receive a quality programming education:

     

    REASON 1: Lack of direct instruction and guidance

    The primary method of instruction at Destination Dev was what educational theory terms exploratory or "discovery-based": give s...
