- So Far, So Good- 8/21/2015Doug • Video Production Professional • Student • Course: iOS Development Immersive • Campus: Salt Lake City
Up to this point (half way through), I'm thrilled with my decision to learn iOS at DevMountain. They aren't kidding when they use the term 'immersive'. -- 9 hours of class a day, generally paired with another 2-3 hours outside of class completing challenges, coding, reading, working on personal projects, etc. It's intense. Despite my fear of getting burned out and/or left in the dust, at this point I find I'm actually headed the opposite direction. I want to keep going, keep learning, keep running into problems so I can keep finding answers. While I had no background in coding at all, I was interested in it. Now, once I get going, I have to make a conscious effort to take a break, get some exercise, eat some dinner, whatever. It has consumed me, which is probably the best review I can offer. DevMountain teaches the basics, and more importantly cultivates an ability (and for myself a desire) to find answers independently. I enjoy the instructors, mentors and environment, and I can't imagine any other bootcamp offering this much bang for the buck.
*Regarding the job category, I'll be marking it a 3, simply based on the fact that I don't actually have a strong opinion on the matter since I still have half the course to finish before I start looking for work.
- Great Course - Changed My Life- 8/21/2015Anonymous • Full Stack Software Engineer • Graduate • Course: Web Development After Hours • Campus: Provo
This course was fantastic. I became good friends with the teachers and students. Fast forward one year and I am working as a mid-level full stack software engineer. The skills and connections I made at DevMountain prepared me to succeed in this field. One of the teachers referred me to companies he had connections with and helped me get interviews at several of them.
- Great school, avoid after-hours courses- 8/21/2015Anonymous • Student • Course: Web Development After Hours • Campus: Salt Lake City
Overall my experience has been mixed with DevMountain. Like the other user that has participated in the SLC Web Development After Hours course I feel a bit let down by DevMountain as a whole. There have been multiple days that we have been locked out of the building, had teachers not showing up at all or just being late on a regular basis. Also as the other user stated the mentors while being great people can be very hit and miss, some are helpful, some have trouble answering simple questions in regards to coding issues. They have 100% stopped teaching back-end which is a big disappointment to me because I was looking forward to this and on top of that they are now telling us our demo-day is now just going to be showing to the class instead of showing to potential employers. Once again, another big thing I was looking forward to that is gone and I believe is going to make it much tougher to become employed leaving this program.
That being said DevMountain certainly gave me the tools to get started. I previously had very little coding experience but DevMountain's course has made me comfortable enough with the basics of HTML/CSS/JS/Angular to learn more. The thing is the majority of what I'm learning at this point comes from self-study and places like Code School and Team Treehouse, but I have to give credit to DevMountain here because I don't believe I would be able to as quickly understand and excel with my self-study if it wasn't for DevMountains instruction.
I also 100% agree that if DevMountain is not willing to put more focus and time into their SLC campus and their after-hours classes than they should just drop the after-hours classes and maybe the SLC campus entirely.
Response From: Cahlan Sharp of DevmountainTitle: CEOWednesday, Jan 13 2016Hi Anonymous,
I'm really saddened to hear about the multiple days being locked out of the building. Those were really frustrating days for us while we were working with the building owners to get direct access to the building that we could hand off to lead instructors. Very frustrating, and I'm so sorry it filtered down to you and your cohort. We can do much better than that.
You might be interested to know that we've since lengthened our part-time classes to 16 weeks instead of 12 and that we have again included React and back-end development as a part of the curriculum. As you may or may not know, you're always welcome to return and retake any (or all) portions of the class you would like.
We'd love for you to come back and pick up the parts you most need so we can help you succeed. If you need to, please drop me a direct line and we can chat more. cahlan[at]devmountain.com

- Thank You Dev Mountain!- 8/21/2015Cal • iOS Developer • Student • Campus: Salt Lake City
I attended to Dev Mountain's iOS immersive course this past winter. I chose Dev Mounatin because of the low price and the housing they offered. The experience was great and the teachers, mentors, and guest teachers were all passionate about their jobs ensuring that we as students, understood the lessons. I entered the course with zero developing experience and now have a job doing iOS development. The career change has been great, in so much that my wife is currently attending the Summer IOS course to pursue a career in development as well. Thank You Dev Mountain!
- Anonymous- 8/21/2015Anonymous • Student • Course: Web Development After Hours • Campus: Salt Lake City
My time spent at DevMountain was great. I had never done any sort of coding before so I came into the bootcamp really green. I got a lot out of the part-time cohort but it seems that the instructors and organization down in provo couldn't give a damn about the way things are run in slc. There were multiple days where instructors wouldn't show up to teach. We were locked out of the classroom as a class and some of the Mentors knew very little about how to help students succeed. There was no pair-programming in the class which is what excited me about it in the first place and there was just not enough time spent on Data-Structures and algorithms (which is something that I'm constantly using today in my career and wish I had a lot more time on). I heard that after my cohort they stopped teaching back end altogether. DevMountain should give up on trying to teach the after hours program and focus on all full-time programs.
All that being said, I had great success (unlike the majority of my classmates) and ended up getting a job after much self-study and learning post graduation. My hope is that DevMountain irons out their kinks and really starts to focus on the program as opposed to the cash making machine it has become! Otherwise I see it just going the way of all other mediocre at best programs out there.
Response From: Cahlan Sharp of DevmountainTitle: CEOWednesday, Jan 13 2016Hi Anonymous,
So happy you found a good job post graduation. Awesome.
I'm sorry you had a less-than-stellar experience, especially the part with instructor hiccups. Sometimes scheduling guest teachers can be tricky, and we obviously failed on those days.
We've toyed with pair programming in the After Hours classes, and have gone away from it usually due to the classes not responding well to it. Maybe it's time to revisit that. We also don't spend a lot of time on data structures and algorithms in the part-time classes due to how much time we have and the breadth of material to cover. It's a tough trade-off.
We recently changed the length of the After Hours programs to be 16 weeks instead of 12. I really believe that will help people to have more time to absorb the concepts as well as let us teach more in the curriculum itself.
Thanks for your feedback, and hoping you have a long and successful career ahead of you.
- Limitless Learning and Success- 8/21/2015Anonymous • Graduate • Course: iOS Development Immersive • Campus: Salt Lake City
Thanks to DevMountain's iOS course, I am now confident and skilled enough to make great iOS apps. Coming in to the class, I had little programming experience and now I know more than I could have imagined. The course gave me great exposure to objective-c and swift as well as many frameworks that acompany iOS development.
- Anonymous • Graduate • Course: iOS Development Immersive • Campus: Salt Lake City
DevMountain provided me the foundation to become a successful iOS developer. With fantastic instructors and the ability to get the help you need when you need it you receive an incredible education. They provide instruction based on real world experience and teach you what you need to know to become a great developer. After taking computer science classes in college and learning some basic programming skills at a slow rate I wanted more. Having a developer in the family I asked what he would recommend me doing and thats when he brought up DevMountain. Because of DevMountain I have a solid career path and the ability to make an impact. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from the best and look forward to seeing DevMountain produce top quality developers.
- iOS Immersive Bootcamp- 8/6/2015Parker • Mobile Developer (iOS) • Graduate • Course: iOS Development Immersive • Campus: Salt Lake City
DevMountain is one of the best bootcamps in the nation. It it one of the most affordable and also most intensive that you can find. The teachers are very accomplished and extrememly good and what they do. The course expects a lot out of its students but is very rewarding. Most of the students had 2 apps in the appstore at graduation and had job offers or interviews when we graduated. I landed the job I have now before I even graduated. DevMountain was the best decision of my life.
- You determine your own success- 8/6/2015Alan Barth • Graduate • Campus: Provo
DevMountain had everything you coud have hoped for. While taking the course I felt like I got exactly what I had paid for and more. Help learning the curriculum was exceptional. Whenever I had a quesiton I was able to get an answer quickly and effectively. The instructors are knowledgable and really want their students to succeed. I have no regrets about taking this course from DevMountain.
- DevMountain is kick ass!- 8/6/2015Bryan Smith • Front End Developer • Graduate • Course: Web Development Immersive • Campus: Provo
I literally knew nothing about code or development. All I knew was that I didn't want to work in a call center for the rest of my life. I looked around and interviewed every single code camp in Utah. All of them. DevMountain was by far the most personable, knowledgeable and real out of them all. They don't accept everyone, but they do believe that everyone they accept has the potential to learn and grow into a developer.
DevMountain taught me more in three months than I learned in a whole semester at the community college. Since completing DevMountain I have reccomended everyone I think would be a good fit to go there. A few of my friends, who just graduated with four year degrees, will be attending DevMountain and I hope that it changes their life like it changed mine. I doubled my salary in just three months and now work for one of the largest online retailers in the world. Life isn't good, it's great.
- The BEST way to make a FAST career move!- 8/6/2015Gabe Guerrero • iOS Developer • Graduate • Course: iOS Development Immersive • Campus: Salt Lake City
It was an intense 12 weeks but I got so much out of it. As with any boot camp, you can't expect them to hand hold you through out the whole course. You will get what you put in. The teachers and the mentors explained clearly the concepts and they were fun to be around. I love the new Salt Lake location its very spacious and they provide snacks and water to keep you going.
They provided free housing which is a 5-10 tracks ride (VTA Trax which they ALSO provide a bus/train pass). When they mean, immersive, they mean immsersive.
They hit all the needed course materials without getting to bogged down on the details (Having encountered the detail myself rather than hearing them explain it saved them/me more time). It was an overall rewarding experience.
I got a job within 3 weeks!
- Great start on iOS programming- 8/4/2015Marcus Brown • Student • Course: iOS Development Immersive • Campus: Salt Lake City
I am currently in the iOS immersive cohort and one word that would describe my experience is intense. Coming from absolutely no coding background from even before the program we were learning the basics and expected to cover about 50 hrs of pre-course work. We are in class 40+ hours a week, half of that is instruction and the other is projects that are related to the daily curriculum. Overall its been a GREAT intro into iOS its impossible to cover everything in the 12 weeks but after the program we can build and app and more importantly we learn how to LEARN and use documentation and online resources to solve problems and continue developing as a developer. DevMountain is an excellent way to start the long journey into the coding world.
- Great School for a Great Price- 8/4/2015Christian R. Monson • Graduate • Course: iOS Development Immersive • Campus: Salt Lake City
During my time at DevMountain (12 weeks), I learned enough Objective C to write 3 apps that are now on the app store! I'm confident in my ability to code and to continue my education in computer development. They didn't just teach me the concepts on iOS developing, they taught me how to be resourceful and learn things on my own.
- Dylan Lott • Front End / UI Developer • Graduate • Course: Web Development Immersive • Campus: Provo
DevMountain is, hands down, the best value you can get for your money. They provide free housing for out of state students, the school environment is awesome, and the mentors were some of the smartest developers I've yet met in my time as a programmer. They had excellent lectures during the learning portion of the class, and then throughout the hands-on and group project time, they had brown bag lectures (optional attendance but highly recommended) that focused on really valuable and applicable topics (e.g. email sending, deployment, encryption, file uploads, etc...). These "brown bag" lectures were some of the msot valuable learning experiences I've yet had and were a real confidence boost because it's where you start to really put all your knowledge and experience together and start understanding high-level concepts as a developer.
I landed a job the following week after I graduated at a startup company and can honestly say it's my dream job, and it's entirely thanks to DevMountain and the team there. They have a staff member dedciated just to helping students and alumni find jobs, and the majority of students in my cohort had jobs within 2 weeks of graduating.
tl:dr 11/10, best money I ever spent and now I have a legit career.
- It's a bootcamp- 8/4/2015Briant Diehl • Graduate • Course: Web Development Immersive • Campus: Provo
As a bootcamp, you come in knowing that you're going to feel rushed and overwhelmed. For being a 12 week course, they do a good job of bringing you from knowing nothing to feeling like you could actually program something. Sure, there are a lot of things I didn't learn, but they taught me the skills I need to continue learning on my own. It was a worthwhile experience for me, and It has already paid itself off in the work I've been able to do.
- Great program, very intense.- 7/15/2015Kelsy • Graduate • Course: Web Development Immersive • Campus: Provo
I had been looking into attending a coding bootcamp for the past ~two years, and decided DevMountain was the best fit for a few reasons.
- I looked up the instructors and watched their talks (Dave Smith is particularly awesome).
- The price point was reasonable. It was by no means something I took lightly, but was actually feasible.
- Housing was probably the tipping point in making my decision to go with DevMountain. The rooms were nice, but more importantly, I didn’t have to stress about where I was going to stay. Other programs were around the same price, but finding a temp room on craigslist sounded sketchy at best. With everything you want to focus on, housing shouldn’t be one of them.
The program itself is extremely intense, which I had read from other reviews (for all of the bootcamps), but for some reason didn’t think others’ emphasis on the intensity was accurate (I was wrong). I’ve attended college full-time while working full-time, but this program is by far the most time consuming thing I’ve done. Being in the immersive program allows you to dedicate yourself to learn something new, and I think is the best way to go.
There were highs and lows during the course (sometimes things click right away, other times you feel like an idiot), but not getting discouraged is key. The people in my cohort were awesome and it made the ‘lows’ a lot easier to bounce back from. Find people you get along with and work together. Even if you aren’t actively pair programming, it’s nice to know that you can bounce ideas off of someone.
Summary: Great program / nice housing / awesome people / extremely intense (a description that you probably won’t appreciate until you’re in the program).

- Best Decision Ever.- 7/10/2015Page • Graduate • Course: Web Development Immersive • Campus: Provo
When I came to DevMountain I was completely new to coding. I had been waiting tables and teaching fitness classes… I have never been to college either. I was nervous I would be lagging behind in the classes. But No, after the first week it felt like everyone was in the same boat. The work was very challenging but the mentors were there to answers my questions and guide me along. Now, at the end of the course I am in shock at the amount of knowledge I gained at DevMountain. I now feel confident in my abilities and capable of getting a job.
Some of the things I learned here:
A bit of React
One of the reasons I choose DevMountain was the location. It wasn’t SF or NYC… I knew that I would be able to focus on the work in a quieter location. Also, Provo is surrounded by mountains, lakes and a ton of fun places to explore. Environment is everything for me and it has been great.
The town is mostly mormon, which I thought could be a little weird. But besides the fact that everything is closed on Sundays … all is normal, maybe even better than normal.
They include housing for out of states students which is amazing! The housing, gym, train and closest grocery store are all within a mile away. I didn’t have a car and I was completely ok.
If you have any question feel free to email me. email@example.com.
Basically, I loved it. One of the best decisions of my life. Its worth the money and time. Do it.
- Recent graduate - Honest review- 7/6/2015Leo • Graduate • Course: Web Development Immersive • Campus: Provo
I learned more in three months at DevMountain than I would have in one year on my own.
The curriculum is on point and the atmosphere is positive. Housing is included and Provo is an easy city to be in. Everything you need is within walking distance.
The atmosphere is positive and the environment is great for learning.
Advice to potential students:
Study before hand. Don't be fooled by the admissions challenge. This course is intense and requires you to study. Spend your time wisely. Always at least pre read the material for the next day. If possible try to get started and the basic things out of the way. The days can be short when working on new and complicated topics.
And finally a cliche advice: find other students who are passionate and eager to learn and study together. There is strength in numbers. Pair program and work on algorythms.
- Tiafau Purcell • Graduate • Course: Web Development After Hours • Campus: Provo
Neil Armstrong pretty much summed up how I felt after I graduated from the web course.
I was part of the very first cohorts for web (part-time) and iOS (part-time) courses. I came out of the web course with a full-time job and a greater understanding of my capabilities. I was more motivated to make a greater impact with my newly acquired skills. I was more excited to venture out and build startups and products.
I'm happy to say, I'm on a great track all because of my experience at DevMountain. My latest venture is a startup called VerdadTech (www.verdadtech.com).
Thanks to all the instructors and mentors that helped me along the way, especially my friends Cahlan Sharp, Tyler Richards, and Colt Henrie.

I recently finished the after-hours web-dev course. The instructors are fantastic, the space is great, and the curriculum and community are awesome. I learned a ton, and more importantly, learned how to learn so I can keep up with the latest in the dev-world.
The course is intense and you have to work hard to keep up, but it is so valuable. I 100% recommend DevMountain to anyone looking to learn code and web development.
- Best Choice I've Made In A Long Time- 4/22/2015Derik Flanary • Campus: Provo
I had been wanting to enter the coding world for a long time and could never get much done learning on my own. Taking the iOS course from DevMountain changed everything. Having excellent instructors to push me and with a curriculum that not just helped me learn Obj C and iOS principles, but also taught me how to learn so I can continue my education after the class ended. Also, the culture there is fun and very accepting I just loved every minute of it and would suggest DevMountain to everyone.

I attended DevMountain shortly after my undergraduate studies in biology. I attended DevMountain with the intent to increase my skillset and make myself more marketable as a potential employee. DevMountain definitely provided the tools for me to be able to learn how to be a web developer. More importantly than the specific libraries, frameworks, and language that I learned at DevMountain as a student, DevMountain taught me how to be continually learning after graduation. The need to be learning the newest languages, libraries, and frameworks is constant, and I feel that DevMountain helped provide me with the ability and direction to be able to stay caught up in the dev world.
