-Comprehensive curriculum. A lot of time to practice React and AngularJS, if that's high on your priority list.
-Small class size -- we had 10 students to 2 regular instructors, with 4 or 5 other TAs/instructors rotating in throughout the week.
-You'll end up with about 6 possible 'portfolio' projects. 4 are done in pairs/teams, so you'll get good with collaborating on GitHub.
-Instructors are devoted, and probably cared more about my success than I did.
-A couple of very talented instructors moved on to other jobs while I was there. (shrug)
-Instructors are less well-versed in certain topics, which made for some messy lectures (I'm looking at you, DevOps)
-Class is highly structured, so if you're the type that wants a lot of time to explore on your own, there...
It was my time to finally make my move. I have journeyed through many paths and I always find myself coming back to coding. Taking this course it made my interest more solid. Instructors and everyone in Devleage are so passionate about helping and making it enjoyable, that I look forward going to class. If you like to problem solve, coming up with solutions and get bored easily this is the perfect career. There is always ALWAYS something new to learn and the Dev league community is so helpful you just have to ask and you will get your answer and the help you are looking for. I'm still shocked by all the knowledge I gained, I mean now I can build start to finish full stack applications where I had no idea what I was doing on my first day of class.
I'm really happy with the decision a...Read more
Attending Dev League is up there as one of my favorite experiences. Going in, I expected to gain the skills I needed to become a Full Stack Developer. What I didn't expect was to be part of a community filled with inspiring and supportive people. It makes such a huge difference being taught by super passionate instructors because they kept me wanting to do my best. I became confident in learning because the instructors constantly challenged me to think critically and because of that I was able to problem solve with minimal navigation from them.
I’m also going to be biased here and say that I was part of one of the best cohorts! I actually looked forward to going to class because when you put a bunch of enthusiastic and ambitious nerds in a room together, great things happen. Thanks t...Read more
I have been through many different types of schooling, but DevLeague has by far been the best experience out of all of them. All the material that you learn is relevant to the career, and the bootcamp focuses more on how to learn new languages rather than just learning specific languages. DevLeague has both independent and group projects that have been carefully organized and created to best fit the students' learning timeline. I have come out of DevLeague not just more knowledgeable, but also as a part of a community that will be with me no matter where I might be in the world. I encourage anyone who has an interest in coding to join DevLeague and become part of the community.
If you have spent any time researching coding bootcamps, you know there are are a lot of them out there, but I can't imagine there being any as unique and impactful as devleague. First of all, devleague has a very low instructor to student ratio. While most coding bootcamps have an instructor for every 20 students or so, devleague has one for every 4-5. On top of that, the average number of students that go through the full-time program are around 7 people. As you can imagine, this allows for a really intimate and personal education. It also allows for the class as a whole to delve deeper into the technologies being taught. As part of this low instructor to student ratio and low number of students, you also get the benefit of really getting to know the people around you. As a result, ...Read more
I just graduated from DevLeague two days ago and I am so satistifed from everything I learnt during this program. I am a belgian native and last year I decided to change career and go from a business career to a coding career. I didn't want to spend a full year at Colege and a bootcamp looked therefore as the perfect solution. After some research, I found about DevLeague and I have directly been seduced by their program. Isolated on a beautiful island, super intense schedule and with a curriculum that covers a lot of areas from the front-end to the back-end; this was the program I had been looking for.
The application process already set the tone of the program but this is a good thing as you can directly see if this made for you or not. You really have to be ready to put your life a...Read more
Staff is very helpful and full of knowledge. Always willing to assist with any questions that we would have. Once class was completed they also assisted with resumes and job placement. I have recommended them to friends and colleagues.
PROs: They teach you how to think like a developer! There's no way to learn everything there is to know about software in 6 months or even a life-time, but the instructors and curriculum set us up to be able to reason our way through problems, use documentation, and "learn how to learn".
Instructors and staff are amazing, they're dedicated to coding and are great examples of how to be great people and have integrity both in and outside of class.
CONs: Get ready to say goodbye to your social life and ability to do laundry on a timely basis, but it's totally worth it :)
If I could, I would go through DevLeague all over again. It was honestly one of the best and most challenging experiences of my life! I left my job in California and moved out to Hawaii for 3 months to learn something I had no experience in. So yeah… that was kinda nuts, but it was so worth it! I got to learn from instructors who were enthusiastic about programming and who were genuinely interested in helping us learn the material. At the same time, I had amazing classmates who busted their butts day in and day out, which kept me going throughout the course. Yes, programming is tough and there are plenty of rough times, but I was always able to get through it with the amazing support group I had at DevLeague.
DevLeague was definitely not a walk in the park. I was sweating bullets be...Read more
I was your traditional college student pursuing a computer science degree when in my third year I realized school just wasn't teaching what I wanted to learn CODING. I became bored at school and started to just teach myself how to code. I soon found out this was not easy and was not getting very far on my own. Main reason being, CODING IS HARD and its a vast ocean of information, I didn't even know where to start. I knew I wanted a career in the tech world and that traditional schooling wasn't giving me what I needed. Thats when I decided to make a change.
I randomly met a guy at the beach that went through a programming bootcamp and talked very highly of how they teach and his experiecne. This peeked my interest right away he told me there is one right here in Hawaii. I instantly...Read more
DevLeague was undoubtedly the best decision of my life and this isn't an overstatement.
In college, I originally majored in Computer Science. I enjoyed creating programs and the satisfaction I felt from making a working product. However, towards the end of the first year, I was beginning to doubt myself because the material was getting more challenging and all my classmates seemed to have been coding long before college started. I ended up changing my major and graduating with a degree in Health Science. I didn't believe in myself, and that was the biggest regret in my life.
I began working at a hospital in Boston performing administrative work. I knew right away that this wasn't the career path for me. I desired a technical challenge and I wanted to gain ski...Read more
All aspects of Dev League are positives! All instructors and TA's were very patient with assisting us. With them assisting us, you could definitely feel the passion that they have for web development. Everyday had its challenges and doubts but being in a room with likeminded individuals helped push me through the entire 12 week course. I have developed friendships that will last a lifetime!
Reconfiguring the classroom back to original state. OH THE FEELS! The classroom was my home for the past 3 months, i never wanted to leave!
Everything about Dev League is a pro. The instructors were so patient with every single one of us and did not hesitate when help was needed. From the start, you could tell how passionate each one of the instructors were about what they were teaching. Their enthusiasm was so infectious that it made everyone excited to come to class everyday ready to learn. There is no such thing as a dumb question, and asking questions was encouraged. The curriculum was so relevant to what employers were looking for, and thats what I valued the most.
Cons: That it ended.. I didn't want it to stop.
If you're on the fence about joining Dev League, I would recommend jumping into it. You will enjoy your time in class and dont give up on yourself.
The instructors were amazing, they were super supportive and knowledgeable in all topics that we covered. The classroom environment was amazing as well, I had a ton of fun over 12 weeks and would definitely do it again. In 12 weeks we covered a ton of content, created a bunch of projects, and we also learned how to build a full application from the ground up. Along with all the technical knowledge, you also create life long bonds with your classmates. I enjoyed the challenges that I faced and conquered and look forward to a career in web development.
None, the hours are long. But when you and your classmates are ...
The instructors are amazing and they are very knowledge on the subject matter. The teacher student ratio is awesome at DevLeague and there are always there to listen. Not to be taken the wrong way however they really encourage you figure out problems on your own. Their main goal is teach you how to solve problems and think for yourself. Commitment is an key factor in this program you have to go in with both feet. The teaching goes beyond just technical skills the program also encourages group work and soft skills. At the end of the day no one wants to hire a jerk am I right?
I was expecting to grow technically and I did but I grew personally as well. Hands down this was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. Programming as a weird way of humbling you and the ego. Thi...Read more
The driving force behind my decision to join a coding boot-camp was waking up everyday and not enjoying the career I had. The lucrative salary was the only reason for me getting up in the morning and going to work. I spent many years in the IT field however, having held various Consultant and Analyst roles, these positions never really allowed me to execute anything myself. I was always promised training and mentor-ship but there was never enough time. I kept taking on more and more work that didn't allow me any room to learn the development side of IT. I wanted to be more creative, I wanted to build things, I wanted to make something that people used but I needed to learn how and college wasn't an option for me.
Decisioning- Before selecting Dev League, I spent many hours research...Read more
I'm as "fresh off the boat" as they come when first learning of DevLeague and programming in general. I'm not a gamer, my phone's a S3, prior to DevLeague the closest thing to a laptop was my ASUS tablet, and I had some exposure to html, meaning - I've heard the term and seen it in Dream Weaver at work lol. Fortunately, DevLeague took a chance with me, my instructors and classmates were not only patient but super supportive, and now I've recently accepted a job offer and am switching career paths. Hopefully this reassures any other F.O.B. aspiring coders out there, that "if I can do it, you can definitely do it."
You graduate the program with a solid foundation as a full-stack developer, allowing you to navigate this huge and constantly changing world of tech, which can be intimida...Read more
I was enrolled in cohort 3. Starting Devleague reminded me of watching one of those war movies where a rookie is dropped into the middle of a war zone, is saved countless times by other experienced soldiers from getting his head blown off and at the end emerges as formidable force. This feeling is what made Devleague such a great experience for me. It felt more like an adventure than a class. Every second of instruction was consumed with something important and valuable. No filler time. The pace is blistering (seemed that way to me but I had no prior coding experience) but that's because it has to be. Not to finish the curriculum but to always keep us uncomfortable and guard against complacency (the death of skill building). It felt rushed but ultimately I learned much more than I reali...Read more
I had zero coding knowledge when I first started DevLeague. I was probably one of the worst students before I even offically became a student to be honest. I had no idea what I was doing and I would send in tons of emails trying to get help on problems I was having. That's how badly I wanted my acceptance into DevLeague. What really amazed me was the amount of help and feedback I received even before being offically enrolled. Then I said to myself, "If I'm getting this much help as someone not in DevLeague, it'll only get better once I'm actually a student there!". It's funny, I think I was so bad that I'm one of the reasons why they had to start DevLeague Prep courses. DevLeague isn't for everyone. If you think you have what it takes, then definitely apply and give it your all because ...Read more
I left the San Francisco Bay Area to learn to code at Dev League and it far exceed any expectation I had of what a coding bootcamp could be.
At times it was incredibly arduous and you will feel like you wont be able to make it through, but the instructors are always helpful and the amazing community surrounding it immerses you into a world of programming .
I had very little coding experience before doing the challenge they provide, but I knew I made the right choice from the first day. Three months later and my choice has brought out a myriad of skills in me that I didn’t even realize I had!
I live in Melbourne, and General Assembly is 5 minutes walk from my house. Yet I chose DevLeague. Here's why:
1. Instructor to Student Ratio
DevLeague has 2 full time teachers and 3 teaching assistants every day. My class had 8 students, so that's nearly a 1 : 2 teacher:student ratio.
2. Coverage of topics
DevLeague covers A LOT. It is a 6 day/week, 12 hours/day course. Topics included:
- Front end: HTML, CSS, Sass, ReactJS, AngularJS
- JQuery and Bootstrap were deliberately not covered to teach us how stronger fundamentals, i.e. how to do things the "hard way". The idea is that you should only use outside frameworks where necessary and to understand their limitations.
- XMLHttpRequests (using APIs)
- Server side: net, http and Express
- Templat...Read more
Thanks for the detailed review and program breakdown. It has greatly helped in my decision. Cheers! Read more
Disclaimer: I completed the pre-coursework, attended pre-course web meetings, and two weeks of the fulltime program. Unfortunately I had to leave due to a family emergency. Despite not completing the program, I want to share my thoughts.
Attending a coding bootcamp is a major investment of both time and money. I'd been doing self-study and some community college web design/dev courses for about a year when I decided to make the jump to an immersive program. If you're reading this, I'm sure you're in the middle of doing lots of due diligence like I did. If you're local to Hawaii, DevLeague is the only game in town which rightfully could make you nervous. There also aren't a ton of reviews out there. That's why I'm taking the time to write this post, to help with your decision to see i...Read more
Came from a lucrative career but wasn’t happy. Dev League gave me the skills and support to make a successful career change and couldn’t be happier that I did the program.
tl;dr - In short, Dev League was a great experience, the curriculum was very relevant to what I wanted to do (web development), and although they don’t guarantee job placement like some other programs, a week out of Dev League and I’ve had two firm job offers at awesome places. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to talk more details and I’d be more than happy to discuss whatever questions you may have.

General Overview: There are many bootcamps out there that run a pump and dump operation, and as the only bootcamp in Hawaii (at the time of this post), I was wary at first thi...Read more
Initially, I had serious doubts about joining Dev League. I thought "Web Development? Hell no. I want to program games." This was coming from a weak background in Unity C# programming - if you could call it programming - and I was extremely nervous about wasting time and money. I explored other options including art or returning to traditional schooling (University), but I decided to dive in, considering the bootcamp being in my native state. Best decision I've made in a long time.
When first entering the room I'd spend the next 3 months of my life, there was a mix of excitement and nervousness that all of my classmates were exuding. Tables lined the room, paired with smart-looking monitors and comfy chairs. I took my seat and pretended to look busy checking my email. My busy-making...Read more
Coming into Dev League, I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. I knew that the hours would be long, the work would be difficult, and hopefully, I would learn enough to land myself a job after graduation. The program did not disappoint. Classes are taught by amazing instructors who are incredibly passionate about the software industry and the work that they do. They make every student's success a priority and you could tell that they genuinely wanted us to become great developers.
In the beginning, the amount of content that we had to digest was staggering, almost to the point of being overwhelming. The Dev League learning environment allowed me to take it all in though and apply the knowledge in meaningful ways. I am astounded by my skill level now. Given that most students had min...Read more
From the beginning, you could tell how much the instructors cared about the student's education. If someone needed help, they made sure that there was someone available to help get us through the hurdles.
I was in the part-time cohort but even that was pretty intense. What I liked about the part-time was that it gave us a longer period of time to soak in the material that was taught to us.
I came in with an mechanical engineering background. My only experience with coding before this was an introductory class in C and some MATLAB scripting for my lab classes at engineering school. I had no idea how the web worked and how everything connected together. Now, I'm walking out with knowledge of the programming technologies all across the web stack and the confidence to learn more going...Read more
$10k is a steal for the lifetime of knowledge you gain from DevLeague.
An intense curriculum that will filter out the weak-minded. That's my experience with DevLeague. The instructors are passionate, insightful, no bs individuals. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to keep up and at times, I couldn't believe I'd ever feel the satisfaction of calling myself a software engineer.
DevLeague will teach you things you can't learn on your own and anyone that believes this did not and has not produced quality work. We covered over 20 different languages, frameworks and design patterns. This was as hard as it sounds.
My post-graduation takeaway is a network of amazing tech-savvy minds, lifetime friendships and the courage to take on any and every project no matter the fear of the unfam...Read more
