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 went to DevMountain just over 2 years ago.  I took the Web Part Time course and loved it.  It also helped me get my first programming job. I have continued with my education and recently graduated from UVU with a BS in Computer Science. I would like to give back to DevMountain what they gave me.

    If you are not doing pre-class work, there's a huge chance you're doing it wrong and wasting your time and money.  Sometimes it's unclear how to prepare best for the next day.  Ask.  You're confused?  Take a deep breath and remind yourself that there is no better way to feel than confused.  It means you are learning, even if it doesn't feel like it.  You're carving a toe hold in the mountain and soon you will be able to use it to progress to the next steop.  Calmly soldier on, and when there is time, DO as much as you can.  As in, make the file, code it, tinker with it, do it.  

     You'll notice instructors have only 4 stars.  I only want to highlight the difference that I personally felt in the instruction style and calliber.  It innitially turned me off, but I wonder if in reality it is better to have variety in instructors; it mimicks the real world.  Anyway, one tacit or perhaps explicit thing that they teach at devMtn and that I will tell you is that you can't expect the instructor to blow your mind and transform you into a developer.  I would say, you need to do the homework, then come to class with questions and an open mind, absorb, ask, solidify.  You have to be able to contribute something at all points, in all interactions, in all lectures.  If you gamble and think, 'I'll just go to class and this instructor is going to solve all my problems for me and inject me with great coding abilities'...that's wrong most of the time.

    After researching dozens of coding boot camps, both online and immersive, I narrowed the field to about half a dozen, visited each of the campuses and after carefully weighing the options, decided to attend DevMountain.

    Coming to DevMountain was the BEST.DECISION.EVER.  

    Attending a boot camp is not easy!  Don't kid yourself when you think that putting in 9-5 for a few months is going to get you a job offer. You will get out what you put in.  Late nights, early mornings and tons of coding and studying!  

    One of the strengths of DevMountain is the staff.  The instructors, guest lecturers, and mentors are all there to help!  Relying on them for help was key to my success.  But they don't hold your hand.  I was expected to do my research before asking help.  My mentors were really good about pointing me in the right direction, showing me where to find the right documentation or teaching me how to ask the right questions.

    More than anything, leaving DevMountain gave me the confidence to learn something new quickly.  Prior to DevMountain, I worked in real estate and construction.  I had never coded before in my life.  The skills and network you gain from DevMountain are worth more than just the cost of admissions.  

    After graduating, I stayed on as a mentor for the next cohort of students.  I got a chance to pull back the curtain and see the boot camp from 'other side.'  Not only did I see the care that goes into the lectures, but I also saw the commitment of the staff.  It isn't just the teachers that have your back, it is everyone.

    Now?  I just received my first official job offer as a Software Engineer!  Thank you DevMountain for everything!  You've changed my life and helped me give my family a better future!

    BEST.DECISION.EVER.

    DevMountain provides a high quality education that will teach you all the basics you need to know in order to build full-stack JavaScript applications. Currently they are a little behind, teaching Angular 1, where it would be nice if they were teaching either React or Angular 2. After graduating, most of the job postings I found were looking for React experience.

    As for job assistance, I was pretty dissapointed. On all their social media posts and at the beginning of the program, they made it seem like DevMountain had a great network that you can utilize to get a job. The only jobs that were suggested by DevMountain were either internships or tech support jobs. Just expect to do all the job hunt on your own. This would have been fine if DevMountain had not set such high expectations.

    Overall, I loved the program and loved learning from great teachers. The hands on, real world experience is great. But just be aware that they sugar coat a lot of things when trying to sell the program.

    I went through a number of career changes in my life searching for something that suited me perfectly.  I started in law, finding the industry to be draining and largely unfulfilling for me.  From there I spent several years in copywriting, and though I loved the freedom of freelancing, I needed something a little more consistent.  It was at this juncture in my life that some friends of mine, who had graduated from DevMountain and found jobs shortly thereafter, advised me to check it out -- and it was one of the best decisions of my life.

    The pace and curriculum at DevMountain are challenging, make no mistake. The intensive program is something you have to fully commit to.  It's more than a job -- it's a daily routine.  I worked my rear off while I was a student at DevMountain, pouring through the material, absorbing all of their resources and practice exercises like a sponge, and in the end it really paid off.

    By 6 weeks I went from knowing nothing about code to independently developing my own full-stack web applications (front-end design and back end server functionality).  By 9 weeks I was leading a group of student developers on a team project, and by the end of the 12-week program I had two polished portfolio pieces to display to employers, and an impressive amount of coding knowledge.

    I was asked to stay on as a Mentor, and spent another 3 months at DevMountain helping to instruct new students in the material I had just sought to master.  In the last month of my time as a mentor, I began the job search, and found a position as a web developer working in React/Node/SQL within three weeks.

    I'm not saying my results are universal, but many, perhaps even most of the graduates I know of have found jobs within a month or two, and most of those with mentoring experience find jobs even faster. Employers love teaching experience.

    But what about the material itself?  Well, coding is an act of creation.  Have you ever been using an app and thought "Boy, i really wish it did this thing, or did that other thing better", or just wished a program existed at all that could perform a function you needed at any given time?  Coding lets you do that.  You can sit down and just make a functional application that can do anything -- literally anything you need or can think of.  It's an incredibly empowering and gratifying feeling to know how to code.

    If you are looking for a career change into a secure, exciting, and growing industry, DevMountain is the educational program for you.

    DevMountain changed my life, before DevMountain, I used to work nightshift at Walmart (9$ per hour). I had no programing experience, I was given a scholarship that covers tuition fees by DevMountain, It was the best experience that I've ever had in my life, they have super smart teaching methods, they know how to modify their teaching strategies according to the particular students, subject matter, and learning environment.
    I would highly recommend it, great environment, you won't regret this decision if you APPLY.

    The only regret I have about DevMountain is not doing it sooner. I'm over thirty and just a few months ago I was thinking that I'd be stuck in sales forever. Thanks to some friends, I heard about DevMountain and the rest is history.

    I had no prior coding experience before being exposed to their pre-course work but I was able to push through. It is hard. The first two weeks are especially tough. You've heard of drinking from a firehose? This was like drinking from a tsunami. I was so overwhelmed I thought I would have to drop out. But after talking to other students, I found out that they were in the exact same boat and I wasn't alone. At that point I chose not to give in to the overwhelming amount stuff to understand. Instead I chose to push forward, understanding and doing what I could while telling myself that all the stuff I didn't understand would make sense later. It wasn't until the last couple weeks of the course, but eventually everything did click together. I go back and look at the projects we did at the beginning of the class and everything falls into place. 

    DevMountain really focuses on learning through building. You spend about 3 hours of your day in lecture and then about 5 hours building something using the principles you covered in lecture. Expect to put in an extra 4 hours on top of the 9 to 5 to finish the projects as well as do your readings for the next day's lecture. The instructors, for the most part, are awesome. My main instructor had more than 10 years of experience in development and he really had a gift for presenting the infomation in a digestable way. They also bring in DevMountain grads from companies around the valley who come in and lecture on technologies that they use in the industry. I learned more about WebDevelopment in these 3 months than I learned about advertising with my 4-year college degree. 

    The social aspect is great as well. Going through a bootcamp forges bonds between students in a way that few other places can. I have met people that I will stay in touch with for a long time to come.

    As far as employment goes, I graduated less than a month ago and I've already taken an offer from a local tech company here in Utah County. The curriculum at DevMountain really helped me learn the technologies this company works in so it was a perfect fit. 

    I don't want to sound like I drank the kool-aid, but I credit DevMountain with changing my life. In three months I learned enough to start in an industry where I can eventually make 6 figures vs the mid-5 figures I would struggle to make using my degree. I can't recommend DevMountain enough.

    This course is really challenging, but extremely fun! There wasn't a single day I didn't want to come to school because everyday was something new and continued to push my learning. Also, the comradery formed with other students and the instructors made it really fun and motivating to come to class everyday! I really can't believe how much I learned in such a short amount of time. This course is a no-brainer for anyone interested in web development. I would do it all over again if I had the time and money.

    I attended DevMountain from July 2016 - November 2016, and must say, it was the best educational experience I've ever had.

    This program is more about learning how to learn, than it is about learning how to code. The most successful people, as far as I've seen, are the ones who were disciplined, and put in as much time as possible to learning everything they could possibly take in each day. I basically had to tell my friends that I didn't exist for three months, ignoring my phone for sometimes days at a time, and spending on average 10-12 hours a day at school. 

    If its sounds intense, and grueeling, and crazy unimaginably hard, it is. It is mind-blowingly difficult. The goal of DevMountain is to give you the skills to get a job when you graduate. And if you work as hard as you can, you will not be disappointed. Plan on a MINIMUM of 60 hours per week. If you can't do that, then a bootcamp probably isn't for you.

    If you are going the bootcamp route, stop searching now and go with DevMountain. You can't beat the value you get for the money you pay. (Also, quit your job and do the immersive program, or save up until you can do that, it'll absolutely be worth it)

    DevMountain offers an accelerated education one that cannot be found at most colleges or can be found after 4 painstaking years of education. This program wasn't easy by any means, however it was well worth the money. The ability to code is a remarkable trade that so few people know and can do. DevMountain gives you the tools to create incredible applications.
