    DevMountain is awesome

    I am currently enrolled in the UI/UX immersive course and will graduate at the end of April. I have loved my experience and look forward to taking the skills I learned and turn them into a career. It's tough work but totally worth it in the end. If you consider yourself a designer and want to challenge yourself, the immersive UI/UX course is extremely rewarding. The mentors and instructor genuinely help to see you succeed and were extremely helpful in helping me step up my game. Thanks Dev...

    Devmountain is really great for independent learners and go-getters and not super great for those who like a more structured environment

    I ended up going to the first cohort in Phoenix in November and while I owe a lot to Devmountain I think this review will help other people learn from my mistakes. 

    Here are a few issues that I found while I was there:

    1. There are no markers to which to judge your progress. You have afternoon projects to do every day and the only gauge you really have is if you understand the content or not. We kept being told "dont worry once personal projects come around you'll get it". ...

    There and Back Again: a UX Hobbit's Tale

    THE GOOD:

    • My instructors and the staff at DevMountain were easy to get along with and talk to. I really appreciate them!

    • I learned a handful of skills and tools for the trade.

    • I got to listen to and participate in presentations and QandA sessions with quality guest speakers.

    • The downtown Salt Lake City Campus is close to public transportation and there are monthly-paid-use parking lots nearby.

    • DevMountain regularly provides tasty (mostly un...

    DevMountain++

    I have been eating and breathing DevMountain for the last 7 months (first as a student and now as a mentor). I can remember reading through the list of reviews when I was deciding to come, and it's a little surreal to leave a review now.

    During my cohort, DevMountain launched a new curriculum. I've been told it was a huge improvement over the old curriculum. This kind of seems to be a pattern at DevMountain -- continual problem-solving on the part of the company to make things be...

    Thoughts on DevMountain

    I loved my time at DevMountain. The course in not easy, but the mentors there are amazing and always willing to help. Sure, they don't always know the answers right when you ask, but I think that that really helped me grow as a learner because they taught me how to solve my own problems and rely less on them.

    The curriculum is very fast paced. There were often times - especially in the beginning - where I would lay in bed at night trying to fully wrap my head around what we were ...

    Life at DevMountain

    DevMountain. Where do I start? 

    I came in as a business graduate who didn't find luck in the job field. Within my first two weeks, Matt, the campus director, took me and another student out to lunch to get to know us. He said that even thought he was in the admin office, he still wanted to get to know students. Despite being a bit separated from actual coding, the staff here interact with the students daily, and host mini-events to get to know everyone better, whether it's smores...

    My Entire Honest Experience

    My Entire Experience

    Before I went to DevMountain, I was doing consulting for 3 years at a software company out of Austin, TX. I was making good money and on top of it; it was a super laid-back job. Everything was chill. 

    Until I got bored of it. 

    The work got repetitive, I felt like my mind was going numb from boredom, my career projectory was ok but not high enough to where I wanted it to be. I wasn't happy going to work everyday. 

    That all changed...

    DevMountain Set my Trajectory

    Honestly, I didn't look that closely at other bootcamps, because once I started looking at DevMountain and talking to other alum, I knew it was the program for me. Aside from being one of the least expensive, full-time, iOS programs at the time for the duration of the course (housing included), it was located in one of the most vibrant tech-industry-growth areas in the country, and everything I heard about it was positive and real.

    One of the greatest things about DevMountain was...

    After Hours is and Afterthought

    DevMountain has a great reputation for their full time, 40 hours a week courses. However, that wasn’t doable for me, so I took the after hours course, knowing that I’d need to be extra dedicated and a self-starter to really benefit from the program. The program had a lot of strengths, with clearly knowledgeable instructors, and a decent curriculum. But, over time it became clear that our class wasn’t really a priority. Instructors seemed to show up, THEN look at that evening’s curriculum. ...

    DevMountain

    Attending DevMountain was one of the best decisions of my life! I majored in one science in college, but wished that I had majored in computer science after taking some beginner courses. After a year of self-study, I attended DevMountain. I met some of the greatest people  ever, I learned more than I thought possible, and I clearly loved it because I stayed on as a mentor. Their approach to education is incredible, and really emphasises each student truly learning and excelling, rather tha...

    Great Teachers!!!

    As always there are pluses and minuses about every decision.  I loved my time at DevMountain.  The students and the teachers in particular.  Morning coffee and breakfast on Fridays were huge for the budget conscience among us.

    Firstly, I wish I had taken 1 to 2 months working on React, Javascript, and CSS before starting the course.  I felt like I was constantly behind when we hit React and I couldn't catch up.

    The guarantee that I could come back t retake the classes i...
