"Bootcamp like no other"

Hello review seeker, I just finished DevLeague a couple weeks ago… be prepared for a long but genuine review of Hawaii’s only coding bootcamp. Let me also preface this review by stating that other than knowing a bit of HTML / CSS, I have absolutely no... Read More

Before enrolling myself in their immersive full-time program, like you and many others… I did my research and tried to find any review or resource I could get my hands on about this school. When I stumbled upon CourseReport and saw all their 5 star reviews, the cynic in me couldn’t believe this boot camp (let alone one all the way in Hawaii) could achieve so many positive reviews, so naturally I assumed most were fake. It wasn’t until I personally met (or saw around school) a lot of these “rando” names that were being used on CourseReport, did in fact belong to actual people and these are genuine reviews from REAL DevLeague alumni.

Taking the plunge with DevLeague as my sidekick was a huge risk for me as I was working full-time in a non-tech job but one of the major deciding factors in choosing this coding bootcamp was the fact that I WOULD be able to make this big career switch in just a few short months and I didn’t have to step foot out of Hawaii.

Being the premature baby dev that I was with no coding background, I enrolled in their JavaScript prep course so I could gain enough knowledge to submit my coding challenge entry. Vic was our main instructor during the 4-week prep course and he was (and still remains) one of my favorite people I’ve met through DevLeague. It’s hard to say *favorite* because honestly, pretty much everyone at DevLeague was awesome and I’m really glad to be a part of this community.

I remember when I first started attending prep class, I was really shocked (but impressed) with the sense of support and community from everyone at DL. Previous graduates would come back to help out or various alumni popped in to give some advice, even students from other classes would stop by to see how we were doing. Needless to say, I really felt the support system there and it’s obvious it trickled down from the top.
I wouldn’t be sitting here today, a DL graduate, if it weren’t for the help and support from Russel and Jason. I can’t count how many emails were passed between Russel and I before I started DevLeague. He was incredibly responsive and resourceful especially when I was going through the process to apply for scholarship, which I was generously awarded. I’m truly grateful for the opportunity they’ve given me.

It’s clearly impossible for me to write a shorter review, especially on something that has had such a big impact, but I’ll try to summarize my experience of the actual bootcamp program:

If you’re looking at the full-time program of 11 hour days, 6 days a week… it seems long, yes, but honestly it passes by pretty quickly especially since you’re jamming on code 70% of the time. My other classmates have the same view as me in this regard.

It’s extremely challenging. I felt so overloaded with information at times that I barely felt like I actually retained anything. That led to me asking myself “Did I make the right decision going through this program?” or “Maybe I’m not meant to be a developer?”

In the beginning, I felt like nothing made sense and it wasn’t until towards the tail end of bootcamp that the pieces started coming together to form a whole picture.

The curriculum is well thought out, projects on point for the topic and I enjoyed the humor in the slideshows. The readme docs are at times confusing (probably getting us used to reading real docs, lol) and some needed updates.

In the end, I wholeheartedly join in and agree with the others in saying “It was the best decision I made” career-wise and if you’re on fence about taking the course or want to ask me for more details about my experience, I’ll be more than happy to answer them for you… shoot me an email jennahscriptAToutlookDOTcom

"Excellent Bootcamp"

I recently completed DevLeague's full-time "JavaScript Web Engineer" track, and I highly recommend the program to anyone who is considering entering the world of web/software development without a CS background. The course offers broad and deep exposure... Read More

Instructors:

The two core instructors of the full-time "JavaScript Web Engineer" course are highly qualified software developers with many years of professional experience. They excelled in explaining technical concepts in a manner which was easy to understand, and they consistently demonstrated patience and a genuine willingness to help and educate all students in the class (even on an individual basis).

Curriculum:

The curriculum was presented in the form of lectures and coding projects. In addition to the fundamentals of JavaScript, the covered topics included, inter alia: React, Angular, AWS (EC2 and S3), Node, Express, XHR, HTTP requests, relational databases (SQL, PostgreSQL, and related ORMs), CSS preprocessing, debugging (Chrome and VSC), database indexing, database normalization, algorithms, data structures, big O notation, object-oriented programming, automation tools, unit testing, templating, hashing, and encryption.

Job Assistance:

The founders of DevLeague are extremely proactive in helping graduates find jobs after completing the program. Prior to graduating, all students are provided with assistance in developing their resumes and practicing for technical interviews. Following graduation, one of the program founders (Russel) continues to make himself available as a valuable resource in your job hunt (locally and abroad). Moreover, the DevLeague community has a strong network of alumni who regularly share job opportunities with other graduates.

Overall Experience:

My overall experience in DevLeague has been extremely positive, and I am glad that I took the plunge. If you are living in Hawaii (or considering moving to Hawaii) and are serious about entering the field of web/software development, you will not regret your decision to attend DevLeague. However, be aware that the time and effort required to succeed will be substantial.

"Things you should know"

Hello,

I'm a graduate of DevLeague's fullstack JavaScript development track. I've gathered some information that would have been helpful for me to know before I started my journey in the hopes that it'll find you well and offer guidance in your search... Read More

First, DevLeague, or any other bootcamp, is not your fast-ticket to a high paying salary. If you're looking to join up at DevLeague looking for a quick way to hit that 6-figure salary, you'll be sorely disappointed. Take it with a grain of salt, since there probably are people making a lot of money with DevLeague credentials, but don't be fooled into thinking it was easy for them. Those of us "legends" (DevLeague graduates) making a decent income is from hardwork. Not from any big shiny spoons feeding us new job opportunities.

Second, the staff are awesome. Simply put, all of the TA's, administrative personnel, even the outsourced HR mock-interview provider are genuine, awesome, people. They are helpful and passionate about what they do and it shows in their guidance and work. Instructors may vary based on your preference: some of them are brilliant coders, but lack the ability to lead a teaching environment. Others excel at teaching, but might not have the "know-everything" expertise. However, the DevLeague staff make an excellent team, as a collective, and are great at what they do.

In terms of curriculum, it was decent but not all-inclusive. When I say it wasn't all-inclusive, don't take that as a negative remark because you have to understand that it's probably impossible to learn many languages in the depth that I learned JavaScript if the curriculum contained multiple languages. This, however, was a bit of a disconnect for me: Most tech firms in Hawaii (which is where this school is based and has the most amount of connections in terms of employment) uses enterprise stacks, like Java or .NET. If the curriculum had a brief introduction and project based on those languages, I might have had a better experiece.

Lastly, job search is very much self-directed. The school offers an expansive network of employers, but given that not many of them are hiring, it makes job searching a grind. If you have dreams of being a developer in Hawaii, then honestly DevLeague is probably your best bet, but even if it's the best bet, it's most definitely not a sure bet. If you don't have a preference for Hawaii as your home, then finding a school and network in the up-and-coming tech hub might be most rewarding. I personally wanted to work in Hawaii, which is why I went through DevLeague.

In closing, I just want to say that my experience with DevLeague was phenomenal. From not knowing how to write a single line of code to writing fullstack, scalable applications in under 6 months is something that this school can help you achieve. I'll say it again, "something that this school can help you achieve." In the end, it comes down to how much grit you have and what you're willing to do to get into this field. I honestly worked my ass off for 6 months and it's paying off now. If you're slacking and waiting for opportunities to drop into your lap, you'll probably be searching for another fast-ticket to a better career not long after a coding bootcamp. So if you're considering a coding bootcamp, make sure you reflect on what it is that you want, first.

Regards,

"Above and Beyond"

Cons:
- Not enough time to learn everything. This is to be expected. Learn what you can with the time that you have.

Attending DevLeague was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It was challenging, rigorous, exciting, and fun! I spent three months on the edge of my seat, trying to absorb as much information as possible. Like anything else, the more effort you put into this program, the more you will get out of it. If you're on the fence about taking the plunge, just do it! You will come out on the other side ecstatic that you did.
