    I would definitely do it again

    DevMountain was a challenging but fulfilling experience. It costs a lot of money, but the tradeoff is worth it as long as you are willing to work hard to get to where you need to be by graduation. The mentors and instructors were super helpful and knew their stuff. The curriculum contained a lot of outdated and extremely long videos that were marginally helpful, but the in-class gudied projects really helped solidify things. I haven't had the chance to go to a DevMountain hiring event yet ...

    Sub-par education; don't waste your money here

    I have applied for dozens if not hundreds of jobs and had a decent number of interviews, but none of them are remotely interested in the middling work I did at DevMountain.

    It was a terrible idea to invest in a bootcamp that did not guarantee a job before spending $10,000 and going-on 7 months of unemployment. Do not make my mistake; look elsewhere, or take some Udemy courses instead.

    Bootcamps are not worth it

    I will try and keep this short and to the point to help future bootcampers make educated decisions when deciding on which track to take, in heading towards a world of web development.  First off, my overall experience at Dev Mountain was ok and the staff was very friendly and nice.  The facility is nice, clean and is open 24hrs a day, which is great for focusing and coding into the late hours of the night.  The housing option was another great feature which lead me towards choosing Dev Mou...

    AVOID THE AFTER HOURS PROGRAM AT ALL COSTS!!!

    Dev Mountain wasn’t a horrible experience for me by any means. The instructors were awesome, and certainly did the best they could to teach you to code in a short amount of time. However, the bottom-line is that Dev Mountain is a double-edged sword. Is it a waste of time? Yes and No.

    If you can afford to pay $10,000 and take the Immersive course – I would recommend that you do so. They will teach you the front and back end side of development, and will provide some ty...

    Hi Anonymous,

    I wish you'd had a better experience in the class. I'm sorry it didn't turn out the way you hoped. I can say that it appears you took the class some time ago, because there have been a few notable changes since the things you mentioned, most notably that we teach back-end in the After Hours class now (we don't do two classes anymore).

    I can't speak to how your particular admissions process was, but we try to make it very clear that if a job is your end goal, then you should do everything you can to take the Immersive course. There is so much more we can do to ensure that you get to the level you need to be to start looking for jobs. That is one reason why we don't offer employment assistance to part-time graduates unless they have a completed portfolio of work. Although some employers still use the CS degree as a filter, in our experience with hundreds placed in and around our campuses, these are relatively few and there are still many jobs to be found.

    Having said all that, I would love to connect to see what we can do to make things right by you. Please contact me directly so we can take a look at your situation and find a way to get you where you want to be.

    Excellent Full Stack Camp with Great Leadership

    I attended an immersive full stack web development cohort here (12-week program) and put in roughly 80-100 hours / week into it. These camps you definitely get out what you put in. It was hard but I learned and grew an extraordinary amount in that small period of time. The leadership at DevMountain is incredibly caring, positive, and want you to succeed. They will do whatever it takes to make sure you feel like you got your moneys worth. 

    That all said... the curriculum could use...

    Very Poor Job Assistance.

    I Also agree that DevMountain is a great school, and the staff are really great people that want you to succeed. It is a cool experience, the environement is very chill and I did learn a ton.

    The only bad thing about DevMountain is the lack of help in finding a job after you finish the bootcamp. It is really hard to get into the job market and start your carrer. I believe the school should help to assist us with employment or find other ways to help get us expe...

    I just want to leave a note because there are a ton of reivews for DevMountain on here. It can be hard to sift through.

    I attended DevMountain and graduated from their immersive web development course.

    DevMountain is a great school, and their staff are actually really great people, and you can really learn when you try. Everything said in these reviews can sometime seem like it is too good to be true, but honestly a lot of it is true. It is a phenomenal experience, envi...

    Great School. Great Environment. Super Hard.

    I took DevMountain's part-time web development class. It was a great school, class, and learning environment but I want to learn more. 

    For me, I don't think the part-time class was enough. I wish I would have taken the full-time class. I just don't have the time to be able to drop everything I am doing and dedicate full-time to learning code.

    I think I just went into the part-time bootcamp thinking things would be easy because part-time = less time, which means less wo...

    Great Educational Experience

    My time at DevMountain was a great experence for learning new skills and learning HOW to learn.  They really care about your success and provide you with as much help as they can to help you feel comfortable with your progress.  They allowed me to repeat some of the class to further understand the concepts (At no extra cost) in order to help me succeed.

    I loved my experience at DevMountain. I had zero coding or programming experience and after three months I had two applicaitons in the app store. I learned so much and it was a great jumpstart into my career. My only regret is that I didn't hear about it sooner!

    Great Program

    I am a recent graduate of the program. It is a very difficult program and you learn alot during the three months you are there. You end up having lots of questions and headaches but there is some one that is always there to help you figure things out and stay motivated. It was a great program and I would recomend it to anyone that is willing to put in the time and effort to be there and work on code.
