    Not worth the money

    I attended the DevPoint Labs Part-Time bootcamp from Nov-Feb 2022. While I learned a great deal about React.js and how to build a site, I have little knowledge about the basic concepts of what I'm actually doing. While the instructor will go through a lot of various materials, they have a very poor set up to actually get you to learn the materials. They spoke about quizzes at the beginning of the classes, but I think we only did 1 or 2 of these. If you want to actually feel prepared for ...

    Life Changing Experience

    Before going to DevPoint I was in the outdoor industry working a sales job and wanted something different for myself. I was hesitant to leave a good job in an industry I loved but after diving headfirst into the course with no coding experience, I gained so much more than a job. This course provides not only the skills employers are looking for but also an amazing community of support to guide and help you in your life/career. The course requires your full 100% effort but the staff at De...

    DevPoint Labs Started My Coding Career

    I went to DevPoint Labs in hopes of getting a career in dev. Now, less than a year later, I have a full-time job as a software developer for a company in Utah County.  Although I thought I could have learned how to code on my own, I certainly wouldn't have had as much focus, help and fun along the way. Nor would I have possibly stayed motivated to really learn the fundamentals of computer programming that are taught at DevPoint Labs. The staff were extremely knowledgable (thanks Nick, Ha...

    Amazing Experience!

    I just finished the course with DevPoint Labs about 2 weeks ago. My experience was fantastic! The team did an awesome job at providing a course that was professional and challenging while also creating an atmosphere that was relaxed and personal. If you take this course you will for sure learn how to code, but you will also learn a ton about the culture and world of programming.  

    Our instructor, James Yeates was an amazing teacher! Our lessons were never (and I repeat NEVER) dry ...

    DevPointer for Life

     Going into DevPoint Labs was extremely challenging for me as I had no prior coding experience besides a few html and css lessons. Yes they do require you to complete a pre-course before starting which I did, but I recommend giving yourself a couple of months to get familiar with the basics by working through FreeCodeCamps  HTML, CSS and JavaScript courses because once you start the actual bootcamp it goes very fast and you will feel lost. Having said that I still had a wonderful time ge...

    Great bootcamp!!

    What I got out of this bootcamp far exceeded my lofty expectations going in. It provided the structure and support that I was looking for, and they have adapted exceptionally well to running this bootcamp remotely during COVID. The teachers were excelllent, and the TA's were helpful and available every time I had a question. I felt that I was able to get plenty of "1-on-1" time with the teacher and TA's as well.

    The bootcamp focuses on ReactJS and Rails in a very practical way. I ...

    My favorite part of developing was the team aspect. I found out that one of my favorite things when it comes to web development is working with a group of people and problem-solving solutions together. My time at DevPoint Labs has helped me reach my potential. This course has given me a good foundation on how to excel in a career. I am very excited for the future, and I am incredibly thankful for everything that DevPoint has given me.

    5 Stars

     DevPoint Labs has an incredible knack for teaching the fundamentals, providing assistance outside of class, and putting you on your feet to have the confidence to apply for jobs, create your own projects, and to continue learning and improving as a developer after you graduate. My favorite thing about DevPoint Labs is how they offer the ability for you to sit in on classes before you start and after you graduate, they WANT you to stay connected. Henry and Danny were the two primary inst...

    Excellent Bootcamp Value

    My time at DevPoint Labs was a great experience. With the COVID pandemic it was difficult to know if a bootcamp would be as valuable without in-person classes, but DPL did a great job to assuage those feelings from the get-go. They offer a free consultation with a staff member to answer any and all questions about the course, and to assure you that while this course can help you code, you will have to work hard at it. And that rang true, the course was an arduous journey but completely w...

    Software Developer

    I think what's important to remember with any bootcamp is that you really do need to be 100% committed to using this experience as a springboard to what you want to do. It will get you exposed to the material, but of course won't get you the job. If you have the time, don't just use this opportunity to socialize. Study before class. Study after class. DO go online and complete the FreeCodeCamp HTML, CSS and JavaScript courses. Learn how to structure and style content but go ALL IN with J...
