Devmountain instructors are all coding industry professionals and aim to bring real-world applications into the classroom. The immersive courses require 40 to 60 hours of pre-course work, 40 hours of class per week, and 10 to 20 hours of work outside of the classroom. The part-time programs require 30 to 40 hours of pre-course work, 11 hours of class per week, and 10 to 20 hours of work outside of the classroom. The school was started in 2013 in Provo, Utah. 

The first step to applying for Devmountain bootcamp is to check out the courses and start dates. Once the student has picked a course, they must submit an online application. Next, students speak with a member of the admissions team by phone to further discuss the program. After the phone call, students must complete a challenge to test their knowledge of the course subject matter. Finally, the admissions team will notify students if they qualify for acceptance. Devmountain recommends that students have some exposure to coding before applying.

    Want to build iOS (iPhone/iPad) apps? There is no better place to learn. You'll start building apps on Day 1 of the class, and by the end you'll have at least one app in the App Store (possibly even making you money). Classes are rigorous, and previous programming experience is definitely preferred, but if you're up to the challenge, you can become a great iOS developer with a start in this course.

    Our "After Hours" course is a great way to dive into UX without having to quit your job or school. It's still extremely intense, but allows for a more flexible format. Classes are held nights and weekends. This class is great for those who are interested in UX, need some skills to better their employment options, or simply learn a new skillset.

    If you're a designer, product person, developer, or simply interested in taking a dive into UX (user experience), this class is for you. Our "Immersive" full-time UI/UX course makes the most of class time because we focus on less theory and more hands-on practice. You're probably already doing some UX whether you know it or not and this course will help you give structure to your innate thoughts through industry know how and structured design processes. The design course at DevMountain is multi-faceted, covering all aspects of the design process from start to finish. While covering both mobile and web design principles students will practice creative discovery, ideation, critical thinking, research collection, wireframing / prototyping, basic front-end coding and more design best practices. The class will teach students to understand and meet modern web and mobile design standards in the product creation process, from first pondering user centered design and design thinking principles to testing their products on multiple devices and measuring the effectiveness of their designs. Students will also learn design principles such as grid systems, typography, color theory, branding and systems-based design, design history and research methods. By the end of the 13-week course, the new designers will graduate with a well-rounded portfolio of work that shows everything they have learned and can achieve in the workplace. This class is great for those who are interested in UX, need some skills to better their employment options, or simply learn a new skillset. The course will prepare students to step into a variety of design roles: web designer, mobile designer, UX designer, UI designer, front-end designer, freelance designer, and more.

    The full-time class is the best immersive coding experience you can find. It's a world-class coding education. It's also a grind--8 or 10 or 12 hour days of instruction, 1:1 mentoring, and work. You'll live, eat, sleep, and breathe code for 12 weeks. And when you're done, you'll be a different person. This class is great for those who are serious about learning to code. If you want to code as a career, this is the place to do it. There's no better place in the country for this price to get nearly two years worth of world-class education.

    DevMountain was a great experience, and I'm glad I did it.  The first 8 weeks of the foundation were incredible.  You had dedicated instructors who did lectures daily, live code, and daily labs. 
     
    The problem I had with DevMountain was in the last eight weeks.   You no longer have dedicated staff who teach you, and instead, you are given a plural sight subscription and a list of videos to watch daily.  Some days the videos were 7 hours long.  Then at around 12:30 every day, there would be a small number of "subject matter experts" that would be available to help us if we had questions.  Some days it would take hours to get help because there wasn't enough SME's for the number of students.  

    That being said, I would do DevMountain again in a heartbeat.  It was one of the best decisions I've made and I would recommend anyone to do it!

I come from a blue collar background and have never done any coding before and now am confident and ready to start a new career after just a few months! If you are even slightly interested, DO IT! You will not regret it.

    I decided to join the Devmountain program after a year of self learning. Devmountain took my learning and programming skills to the next level. The instructors and support staff make you feel like you are not alone in the learning journey by always being available to answer any questions about new concepts even in a remote setting. Overall the program was one of hardest things I have done but I feel it is equally as rewarding. I am now confident going into my job search with the skills I have learned!

    I had debated about joining the Software QA program for a couple of years. I finally took the leap while Covid was going on. Entering the program, I knew nothing about Software QA. I would spend extra time studying and working on what we had learned at night after class was over. The program was 9am-5pm, but for me it was more like 9am-12am some nights. The teachers were great. Even with the program being online, everyone in our program was responsive and helpful. You have class and mini-assignments during the day, then homework at night. Toward the end of the program you complete a personal project as well as a group project. After completing the course, you receive help with your resume and LinkedIn. I followed all the advice and applied to every job posting that fit what I was looking for. Even during Covid, I have been through multiple interviews and have received a job offer! I can now start a career path that I'll be happy in. It worked out for me, but I worked hard. Only do it if you're ready for a change and willing to work hard.

    Overall, I had a really great experience. <$10k for 13 weeks of quality instruction--and an environment conducive to learning web development and making connections with likeminded folks--was a great value relative to the price tag. The cost factor was the main reason I went with DevMountain, as I couldn't fathom spending $10k-$20k+ on a boot camp (at that point, you're probably better off just going to a local community college and then transfer to an in-state accredited 4-year Bachelors in CS [Computer Science] program honestly). And I definitely feel that I got my money's worth, and then some.

    I went the boot camp route to change careers, and I am really glad I decided to do so with DevMountain. I previously completed a degree in Engineering (non-CS) and had been working on programming in my spare time for the preceding 2-3 years, including taking a few CS courses online focused on C++ via my local community in the year preceding (2019) the start of the boot camp (2020). Therefore, I came into the boot camp with a solid background and specific goals/intentions: to learn full-stack web application development. And that is precisely what I got out of the boot camp: nothing more, nothing less.

    Relevant, focused curriculum over a relatively short time period (13 weeks), getting you up to speed relatively quickly. I am generally skeptical of other boot camps that cover 2 or 3 full stacks; starting off going into a junior developer role, it's much better to be proficient at one stack than mediocre at 3. To this end, as of this writing (2020) DevMountain's web development curriculum v.3 (https://github.com/DevMountain/web-curriculum-v3) covers HTML/CSS and full-stack JavaScript via React/Redux (front-end/client-side) and Node.js/Express with PostgreSQL (back-end/server-side). This is a very in-demand and useful stack for the current web development job market.

    Furthermore, the Outcomes department is very engaging and helpful, even post-graduation. They work hard to coordinate events and put alumni in touch with employers for opportunities. While I ultimately ended up finding a job in my local market independently of Outcomes, I really appreciate their hard work and good-faith effort to put alumni in touch with prospective employers.

    It would be nice for the curriculum to put more emphasis on unit testing (covered briefly in the last week of lectures), that was the biggest blind spot I had coming out of boot camp going into my first role as a junior. But there's only so much they can cover in 13 weeks, so on the whole still a pretty solid curriculum.

    An important CAVEAT for prospective boot camp students (not specific to DevMountain students, but rather BOOTCAMPS IN GENERAL): do your DUE DILIGENCE! I strongly advise against doing a boot camp if you have no prior programming experience, and this is for several important reasons:
    - 1) Firstly, if you are going to spend thousands or even $10k+ on a boot camp, make sure YOU ACTUALLY ENJOY PROGRAMMING. This is not a get-rich-quick field, it takes a lot of time and practice to gain proficiency, and continuous learning to stay current with the field even after you are hired as a working/professional developer. If you're just looking to punch a clock 40 hrs/week expecting to make six figures, look elsewhere. The reason programming pays well is precisely because it is hard, and not many people are cut out for it.
    - 2) As a corollary to the previous point, be sure to do some preparatory work. Learn the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, which also should give you a good idea of what programming will entail. This will be your life week in and out if you choose this career path, so figure out first how well it suits you and whether you have the core competencies to make it as a programmer. Furthermore, with a solid background coming in, you can focus on learning the more advanced/important concepts during the boot camp, rather than getting bogged down with the basics of programming right out of the gate. The program moves FAST so it takes a lot of effort to keep up, even for students coming in with some experience.
    - 3) Lastly, be sure to manage your expectations. A boot camp with a solid curriculum will have you leave the program at a level of competency commensurate with a junior developer; to this end, I am extremely satisfied as an alumnus of the program. However, while the skillset is valuable in the marketplace, there is no guarantee of employment, and you should expect a challenging job hunt--junior developer roles have ALWAYS been competitive (even pre-COVID), and the current economic slowdown due to the pandemic only makes this more challenging. In my personal case, I was able to land a junior role under a month after graduating. BUT, I have an Engineering degree (non-CS) from a reputable university, and 5+ years of experience (unrelated to software development) in the same industry where I received both offers. Your mileage WILL vary. 3-6+ months of focused job hunting (i.e., applying daily) is reasonable to expect to land a job, particularly with a shaky economy.

    TL;DR Devmountain is awesome, and the outcomes team has the keys to the kingdom of Dev Jobs.

    I loved my time at Devmountain. The course work was very challenging, but learning mastering, and then Badging the course were incredibly satisfying. When I graduated in 2018, the career placement help was not the best. It took me about a year to find a job. A few months ago I got laid off from my job in June. The reason I am writing this review is feedback and a public declaration of admiration and gratitude for Christian Dickerman and the rest of the "Outcomes" team. Christian and the team have a simple job; give you the help, feedback, insider info, and encouragement you need to successfully obtain a job. After a few weeks of tweaking and council with Christian, my LinkedIn profile views Doubled literally the day after we implemented the final set of changes. We finished on a Thursday and by Tuesday of the next week I had 3 interviews  with 3 separate companies in Ohio all offering more than 75,000 dollars to a kid with 1 year of experience in the industry. I did my own job search for roughly 3 months and went from 0 interview 3 FOLLOW UP interviews over the course of 3 days thanks to Christian. We worked together and I worked hard while we weren't on call, however I fully credit the knowledge he gave me with my new found success. I obviously use the knowledge I got from coding everyday. Without the excellent staff and curriculum I wouldn't be where I am. The coding and studying knowledge has proved unbelievably important to my success. With equal emphasis I can say that the New (to me at least) stuff that the Christian and the team has cooked up is just as important as being able to code to find a job. 

    Ill end this review with 3 pleas each to different people.
    1. To the person who is looking into Devmountain as a potential bootcamp: This thing works. I went from a $12 an hour job as a computer repairs person with 0 coding know how,  to an intern making $21 an hour, To in talks with 3 separate companies for 3 separate jobs all offering at least 75,000 a year plus benefits. The amount of work before, during, and after the bootcamp is  INTENSE, but its worth it and it works. 
    2. To a fellow graduate: PLEASE keep coding. PLEASE keep applying. PLEASE LISTEN TO CHRISTIAN/Outcomes team. He/they know their stuff, and spoiler, the $#!% works.
    3. To Christian's Boss: For the love of God give this man a raise.

    I had a great experience with DevMountain. I started their IOS Development course with very little programming experience and I left feeling confident in my skills to get a good job in IOS Dev. Literally graduated 3 days ago so I would love to update this once I land a job as an IOS Dev.

Thanks!
