    Life changing

    My experience at DevMountain in Dallas was incredible. The instructors and course work taught me in three months what would have taken me over a year or more to learn on my own, in addition to exposing me to technologies and frameworks I may have otherwise not knew even how to begin to learn.

    Don't think though that you can just go through the motions and magically understand everything though -- you get out of it what you put into it. They are very clear and upfront about this t...

    Well worth the investment!

    I came to DevMountain with almost no prior coding experience and 3 weeks after graduating landed a job as a developer with a 67% salary increase over my last job!  The boot camp was an intense experience, but not any more intense than a busy college semester, and it went by so quickly.  What is great about the structure of DevMountain is that you get a ton of hands-on experience just practicing building stuff with what you learn every day after lecture.  Then when personal and group projec...

    A Highlight of My Career & Education - Worth Twice the Price

    My experience at DevMountain was literally life changing and a highlight of my established career and education.  Prior to enrolling, I attempted to learn the basics of web development from YouTube, Team Treehouse, friends and other various tutorials. While there is a wealth of quality self instruction available on the internet, it is only accessible if you are fluent enough in the the syntax of development to take advantage of it. I would follow a tutorial and then get stuck at a "basic" ...

    Better Experience than My Degree from USC

    I went through a sort of mid-life crisis at Dev Mountain. About halfway through the cohort I looked at Course Report and read some of the recent negative reviews and this got my mind racing. Maybe I made the wrong choice. Maybe DevMountain isn't as good as it once was...

    Three Months & A New Career

    DevMountain lived up to its offer of being able to start a new career after going through their intensive three-month web development program. It was a very tough course that required many hours and dedication for three months. However, those of us who successfully made it through learned much more than I thought could be done in such a short amount of time. I walked away feeling comfortable with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Angular.js, Express.js, Node.js, jQuery, Git, and MongoDB. We got a tas...

    An opportunity I wouldn't trade for anything.

    I recently completed the Immersive Web Development Cohort at DevMountain. Going into the program, I had strongly debated between Development or UI/UX, as I am a very big design guy. I decided that I was confident enough in my design skills and that I wanted to learn something completely new.

    The course at DevMountain opened up my eyes to so many new possibilities. I was nowhere close to being the best student, and honestly was probably in the bottom half of the group. However, I ...

    Definitely NOT worth it

    This course, or "cohort" as they called it, was riddled with inexperience, lack of preparation, and apathy.

    More often than not my class would arrive early ready and hungry to learn.  The instructor would show up 15 - 30 minutes late and start looking for what today's lesson was.  It was not uncommon at all for the instructor to just adlib his way through the material.  Material that he didn't know we would be covering that day until he walked into class.  Instructors would make ...

    As a recent graduate of DevMountain, I thought of writing a review with my experiences only after getting a job! It is kind of selfish of me, but that is a reality. Well, I didn’t have to wait too long! I got a job offer from a reputed company within one week of graduation! This company was amongst many others who had been invited for the employer meet-and-hire event hosted by DevMountain. The event provided me with a great platform to interact with these companies and showcase the applica...

    Good Experience

    I was a student of the first cohort for the 13 week web immersive course in Dallas, TX. Being the first cohort in a new city/location, there were obviously some growing pains at first.  However, things really started to come together and students began picking up more and more skills along the way.  I am quite certain that the next cohort will have an even better experience.  

    My favorite part of the program is getting to meet and work with a wide variety of people.  Personally, ...

    I attribute it all to DevMountain!

    I loved being at DevMountain. I learn best when someone is in front of me, helping me, guiding me, teaching me. In a classroom setting. In person. So, DevMountain was exactly what I was looking for.

    I was lucky. I was part of a great cohort that all gelled really well. So we all worked together pretty well. Obviously, there were a few people who seemed to be less dedicated than others. I am going to keep in contact with the people in my class forever. A big part of...

    Best Decision!

    Attending DevMountain is one of the best decisions I have made.  I starting building my first website over a year ago not knowing anything.  I was so proud of what I had created and loved coding that I decided I wanted to change careers and become a web developer.  My plan was to go back to school and get a masters in computer science (I have a BS in Math).  Then, my brother told me about DevMountain, and after doing some research and looking into other dev boot ca...

    Ok

    DevMountain was ok, if your looking for a career maybe go to school first. I have only gotten a response from a handful of companies and they all say the same thing "I need more exprience". It's quite a bit of money to spend if your hoping to get a career out of it, which most everyone looking into it is looking to get a new career out of it. If your going just to learn coding its probably worth it, if your main goal is a job it might not take you in that direction. Just some...

    Hi Trent,

    If I had a dime for every time a Junior Developer was told they "need more experience..."

    It's a tough pickle. You need experience to get your first dev job, but your first dev job *is* your experience. It's probably one of the toughest hurdles to face coming out of a code bootcamp for anyone.

    We've got some great job assistance resources in place. Have you utilized them? Jeff Chapman has a great program for helping people to get employed, and our 90% placement rate is a pretty good indicator that it's working. 

    Would love to chat and see if we can get you where you want to be. cahlan[at]devmountain.com
