    I love DevMtn

    This School was worth every penny. I graduated from University last year and spent months unsuccesfully finding a job. After 3 months at DevMountain I found a job within 2 weeks of graduating. 

    Pros:

    I learned so much, so quickly. Seriously every day is just a firehose of knowledge and you are trying to catch as much of it as you can. In the past I finished my bachelors degree and this was so much more intense. The Instructors are so good and the me...

    Great Experience and Kickstart

    Enrolling in DevMountain was arguably the decision that has had the quickest impact on my career. I had zero experience with mobile development outside of being an avid consumer of the variety of applications.

    DevMountain helped me start learning faster than any other method I had tried in the past. A ton of people argue that bootcamps are a waster of money when there are so many free resources available online. It is true that there is a lot of free resources ...

    It's Good, But Not A Guarantee

    I really enjoyed my time at DevMountain, and it's working out for me. I wanted a job as a front end developer or a UX designer, and I'm currently halfway through a UX design internship, and taking interviews for front end developer jobs.

    Pros: The energy and excitement was palpable. The instructors really want you to succeed, and care about your success, especially if you are working hard, which they can tell if you are. The pace is so fast and the expectations are so high that y...

    Part-Time Was Great

    I did the part-time cohort in Provo, and it delivered on my expectations. I was hesistant going into it because I didn't know if part-time would help me as much as the full-time class. But looking back at it, the Part-time class was perfect for my situation. I wasn't looking for a job, but more so a training in code. I am a designer. I have focused on design my whole career and I wanted to understand how my designs from the perspective of code. After only a few weeks at DevMoutain's ...

    Awesome Program

    Devmountain was a great experience for me.  It is a fast pased program that will push to become an independent developer.  

    My biggest recomendation is to take your prepetration seriously before coming.  They are trying to make you competative with 4 year college grads in just 3 months, so you'll want all the preperation you can bring with you.

    Really swell place.

    DevMountain was a great experience. I learned more here, faster, than I could've in probably two years on my own, and came out of it making about twice what I was making before, doing something I love. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because (when I went, over winter 2015-2016) the curriculum badly needed to be updated and made consistent. I've heard from later cohorts that they've put a lot of effort into that, though. I'd definitely recommend this place over just about any othe...

    Thorough and personable!

    I had very little coding experience before DevMountain. I was exposed to the atmosphere of hard and fun work when my husband was going through IOS program at the same school. I loved being around people that came to the bootcamp from various paths of life and worked their tails off to improve their coding skills and chances of getting a better job. I quickly decided that this was going to be the school I would join. I chose web development since I was more familiar with the languages and m...

    Great Experience!

    I wanted to jumpstart a new career in programming, had started with self-study, etc, but wanted the direction and structure that DevMountain promised to provide. It turned out to be exactly what I needed and expected. 

    I had previous programming experience, but nothing recent or relevant to what I wanted to do. I found the curriculum at the time to be just challenging enough, well-paced and useful. I also appreciated the fact that as I watched DevMountain over the next year I saw...

    From zero to hero

    DevMountain proved to be a very illuminating and insightful experience. Prior to taking their WebDevelopment course I'd only designed very rudimentary web pages, using only HTML and a limited amount of CSS and Javascript. I'd tried teaching myself all the basics but without direction, It had proved to be very difficult. DevMountain was the perfect solution. They don't utilize the old fashion teaching method of throwing words at you until your brain shuts down, they teach for a small portio...

    You get out what you put in!

    DevMountain provides an environment with the solid resources and accessible tools you can use to become a developer.  I'm currently a full-time junior working on enterprise architecture for some huge global brands.  Before that I made puppets for the animation industry.  You can make a career switch, trust me. 

    Is it is easy? NO!  A resounding no.  It will probably be the hardest thing you've ever done in your life, from making the decision to attend, to actually going through t...

    Need to know how to program

    This is by no means a beginners boot camp.  The pace is very fast and if you don't catch onto one of the many concepts you will fall behind and never catch up.  I would recommend 2 years programming experience before you attend this boot camp.

    Hi,

    I'm sorry the bootcamp seemed a bit too fast paced. We've spent a lot of time refining and iterating on the curriculum, it's gone through a lot and is pretty polished at the moment.

    I'm going to have to disagree with your 2 years programming recommendation. We have at least 75–80% of incoming immersive students who have little-to-no experience programming prior to pre-course work, and with our current placement numbers hovering around 85%, I'd say we're doing a pretty good job of delivering on our mission to make an impactful, accessible experience.

    Finally, something that many students don't realize, is that we offer multiple opportunities to "catch up," if you're struggling, including repeating portions of the curriculum or taking the entire course a second time, completely free of charge. 

    If this is what you're looking for, please let me know and we'll get you into some weeks that you need to repeat that maybe went by a bit too fast.

    Please let me know, and best of luck to you. cahlan@devmtn.com
