    Mission Complete

    I took the Web Development - Full Stack cours. My goal was to gain an education, enough to get a job. DevMountain delivered.

     

    DevMountain was rigorous enough, community driven, and strategically organized for optimal skill development. They educated me on the content I needed to display during my interviews, that eventually got me my job.

    I was hired as a Mobile Developer, but my knowledge of the full stack showed them I was more than a guy that knew Swift a...

    Is it worth it? Honest review in 2019

    I would not entirely recommend the DevMountain full stack immersive program because after completion of the course, there is no help for you. You are left on your own to try and find a job and your few skills do not let you apply for a majority of the web development positions out there. The hiring events that they hold after you complete the program only target the students who are mentors and you will be lucky to have anything after you hand out a resume.They also do not publish that the...

    Time Commitment

    I probably spend 80 + hours per week at dev mountain, or working on projects, or other assignments for the Web Development Immersive Course. I am just graduating, but I have to say, I wouldn't do it any other way. Put in the time, because you will need every minute of it to try to absorb the immense amount of content that will be covered in your 13 week stay. 

    Great, challenging course, just don't come in with any plans for a social life outside of this while you are here. There re...

    Good experience, but a little misleading

    Honestly, I went a few years ago and still regret this choice. DevMountain was a fun experience but not worth the money it costs to have that experience. At the time they made it seem like you would get a job from doing this program. They pushed a 95% job placement for their students. As a 24-year-old, I thought that sounded great and they made it sound great. They really pushed the job aspect and made you believe you would get a job. However, I quickly learned this wasn't the case. I even...

    Full Time Immersive

    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!

    I would definitely do it again

    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 ...

    Sub-par education; don't waste your money here

    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.

    Bootcamps are not worth it

    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 Mou...

    AVOID THE AFTER HOURS PROGRAM AT ALL COSTS!!!

    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 ty...

    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.

    Excellent Full Stack Camp with Great Leadership

    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...

    Very Poor Job Assistance.

    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 expe...
