Devmountain is a technology school that offers full-time and part-time programs at campuses in Lehi, Dallas, and Phoenix. The immersive courses include Web Development, Java Software Engineering, Python Software Engineering, Data Analytics, Software Quality Assurance (QA), iOS App Development, and User Experience (UX) Design. The Web track covers front-end and back-end JavaScript (HTML/CSS, jQuery, AngularJS, Node.js, Express, data sources like SQL, Mongo, Firebase). The iOS track covers mobile development in Swift. The UI/UX course covers prototyping, visual/motion design, sketch, adobe suite, UX research, wireframing, and analytical tools. 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.

    I attended DevMountain's full time immersive course in the summer of 2016. I had an awesome experience and was blown away how much I could learn and understand in their 12 week course. I felt like I had the support I needed with their instructors and mentors and loved being in an immersive situation with other students.

    if you're looking to learn full stack web dev I'd highly recommend DevMTN!

    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 so that is why the Job Assistance rating is a 3, although I'm sure the hiring event will be awesome. 

    All in all, a great experience and I would definitely do it again.

    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.

    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 Mountain as a coding bootcamp.  All of these features and options were great, and were probably the reason why I gave the bootcamp a medium rating.  

    The things I didn't like while attending were some of the lectures and classes were a bit unorganized and the school seemed like they didn't have there stuff together at times.  Also some of the curriculum course assignments were out of date, and didn't work when trying to complete the assignments.  This made things difficult when trying to learn new concepts in coding.  This was not just me, but I know a lot of students complained about this aspect of the schooling as well.  I also felt that the lack of professional coding experience by the staff was underwhelming. Outside of the lead instructor, most of the mentors and instructors were very green to the software development world.  These were some of the things I was hoping that a bootcamp experience would have delivered on since I was paying for a high priced education.  Oh yeah, and towards the end of the experience, they tell you that a bootcamp doesn't really look that good on your resume and that you should try to disguise that somehow.  Weird thing to tell your students, who have just paid a bunch of money to go to school and sacrificed everything to change careers.  This was another thing myself and other students felt a little strange about, but obviously couldn't do anything since it was disclosed during the last week of schooling.  

    I think overall out of any bootcamp experience, I think the advertising out there boasts one thing, but the reality of going through it, is another story all together.  If I could do it all over again, I would not have quit my job and lost out on so much time and money that I invested.  In total, I've been jobless for 6 months now and upon looking for work, there really aren't that many junior dev jobs out there like a lot of bootcamps boast about.  If anything, join up with Pluralsight/Udemy, keep your job and learn from building projects that work out of the box.  The bootcamps are teaching the same concepts and aren't enlightening the students with any sort of extra knowledge you can't get from a time tested teaching resource like Pluralsight/Udemy.  If anything, I've learned more from watching expert PS videos and going through online teaching courses, than at the physical bootcamp schooling.  That's just my take on it all, some people need the bootcamp experience, but for me it was not worth my job, time and money invested.  I worked really hard while there, and continue to work really hard in trying to move forward, I just thought things would have turned out differently.

    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 type of job placement. However, if you cannot afford the Immersive course, or cannot simply be in class all day – DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THE AFTER HOURS CLASS! It is a complete waste of money and time. Some people may argue otherwise, as people certainly have found jobs from the After Hours class. However, there are a number of things to be aware of when it comes to this course.

    1. Dev Mountain will not acknowledge or support their after-hours students. Once you “graduate” from the after-hours program you will not receive ANY support or job placement from Dev Mountain. If someone contacts Dev Mountain to ask about you, they will not say you know what you’re doing because you simply haven’t had enough hours in development to receive their endorsement. You get as much credit from them as if you never took the course in the first place.

    2. You learn nothing about the back-end. All you learn is simple front-end development in HTML, CSS, some jQuery, and AngularJS. With the Immersive you learn both front and back end – an important thing when looking for a developer job.

    3. The most important thing that almost all jobs I was looking for to get in as an entry-level developer is a Bachelor Degree in Computer Science. This is almost the main thing all people looking for Junior Developers are looking for. If you truly want to get into coding – go this route and avoid a coding boot camp.

    Now, DevMountain will tell you that they offer an advanced after-hours course to teach the back end which is true. But ask them how many people actually sign up for it. They’ve had to cancel it twice as no one has any interest in doing so after they take the regular after-hours course and find out that they’ve just wasted $5,000. They claim that over 90% of their students find jobs, but these figures are for the people who took the Immersive class. If they kept stats of how many after-hours graduates find jobs (which I’m sure they don’t because they simply don’t care about these students after they have their money) I would think that the placement figures would be around 1%-5%. Which means almost 95% of after-hours students just wasted $5,000.

    In the end, I would like to see Dev Mountain just get rid of the after-hours course because it’s just a rip off. If you are going to go to Dev Mountain – take the Immersive course, or don’t go at all. I can’t speak for everyone, but I certainly don’t have $5,000 to waste. I could have taken it out and burned it and I would have ended up with the same results. Dev Mountain is supposedly run by ethical LDS people. If this is the case, I would hope that one day they would do the right thing and get rid of the after hours course and just offer the Immersive one. If you can’t afford $10,000, then find a better way to spend your money.

    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.

    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 a little work (as of early 2016). I know that is a focus for them so hopefully it will get better as time goes on. It's definitely not enough to ding more than maybe a single star.

    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 experience in the industry, especially after the cost of the school. 

    There are other bootcamps that offer, for example, get hired or receive a full tuition refund. With DevMountain you are on your own.

    I tryed asking for help for opportunities but hardly recieved any help. It's been a year now and I'm still trying to find a job.

    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, environemtn and I learned a ton.

    The only critiscism I have of the bootcamp is their job assistance. It is almost non-existent. They really don't make a ton of connections for you. I had a really hard time getting into the job market and making a name for myself. The job curriculum there is not the best. I as the student, I am in charge of my education and controlling how well and how much I learn. But I feel like it is the bootcamp's job to assist us in employment because we, the students, have no connections to the idustry. 

    Just know that landing a job after a bootcamp is going to take time and a lot of effort. 

    I am know employeed at my dream job, at a gaming company but it took me about 6 months to land some where.

    I don't think that is enough to deter you from DevMountain because learning at DevMountain is superb, but it is enough to heed a warning.

    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 work. I think myself, along with many other students, came into the class expecting it to be a fruitful endeavor while also being a breeze. On about week 1 or 2, myself and my classmates realized that was not the case. The bootcamp was a kick in the pants.

    I would only recommend taking DevMountain if you are 100% serious about learning these difficult skills. It really showed me what it truly takes to become a developer. Students at DevMountain needs to be dedicated.

    The part-time class was perfect for me because I was still attending a local university. Attending DevMountain in the evenings was ideal for my schedule. But I do wish I could of dedicated even more time to learning.

    The curriculum was seriously challenging. We all buckled down and put ourselves to work. Our mentors and instructors were super helpful in the whole process and now that the class is over I feel really comfortable with my skills.

    My goal was met in taking DevMountain, I just wish I had time to take the full-time class.

    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!
