The devCodeCamp philosophy is to learn through doing. Students can expect lectures that range from the fundamentals of development to advanced, industry-driven concepts. We start out highly structured, with frequent lectures. The first weeks increase your understanding of core concepts. As the bootcamp progresses, there’s deliberately less lecture and structure and more hands-on project work. We go from giving you answers to teaching you how to solve problems yourself, working in pairs or in small groups.

This bootcamp uses the CIRR methodology. All CIRR members use a standardized, one-page format. To ensure complete accuracy, CIRR reports account for each enrolled student. You can compare outcomes with other CIRR members side-by-side.
devCodeCamp has easily been the most enjoyable education experience I've ever had. The coursework is relevant to the job market, the lectures are informative but not overbearing, and the instructors are amazing. They welcome all questions and are extremely approachable and helpful. If you attend this school, ask as many questions as you possibly can. The instructors will gladly explain not only how something works but why it works better than other feasible solutions. You will gain a great depth of knowledge that is limited only by how much effort you give.
In short, go to devCodeCamp!!!
I recently graduated and I'm glad I decided to go here. I had some basic programming experience before I came in so it made the first couple weeks easier but there is always extra things you can work on if you finish the current task early. You arent going to be sitting in lectures all day, instead the majority of your time will be actively working on projects which I greatly prefer. The instructors are really kind and helpful, you can ask for help at any time no problem even after hours on slack they will help you. Paul makes it very clear before you join that this will be hard work, its called a bootcamp for a reason but if you enjoy it its fun work. Overall if you enjoy coding this is a great choice to get the skills you need to become a Junior Developer.
The course is not easy especially if you have no prior programming experience. It's a rough 12 weeks, 7 AM - 4 PM, and sometimes 5 PM. You got weekend off but oftentimes, you'll end up using it up for self study or your project. It's grueling work and many times, you want to quit, but keep on pushing, one step at a time -- always moving forward, even a little. The instructors are very knowledgeable and helpful, even after class. People in the class come from different walks of life; some will know more than you and some less, so don't compare yourself to others, but to a set standard set by the course. You are graded (not on a curve) and need at least 80% to graduate. If you don't graduate on time, you're allowed to resubmit assignments and projects. The object of the course i...Read more
Great team! Right away you are taught how to think like a software developer. They provide a collaborative arena constructed to replicate a real-world software development environment.
I was lucky that a friend connected me to devCode when I was looking for a career change. From my first visit, the staff were honest about the expectations of students; they told me it was going to be challenging work. I came into the course with a mindset that I would need to dedicate myself to the work. Throughout the process, I was given the challenging work I was promised. I was able to do the work because of the instructors that are literally available day and night to help when you get stuck. Students have constant access to qualified instructors (who love what they do) during the day, and then are able to use Slack to connect with them after hours. One of the best parts of this camp is the director of curriculum. As a former teacher, I know good instruction when I see it. ...Read more
This bootcamp was a great way to learn how to start coding in a few different types of coding languages. It was fast paced, but it helps you prepare for the real world when you have a career in the web development world. It was very project based which helped a lot. The projects helped you learn how the certain type of coding language works. There were group projects and this helped you learn how to code a project as a team. The group projects helped you learn to work as a team. After you complete the 12 weeks, they help you find a job which is a great aspect. Overall, this coding bootcamp was worth it.
After only a week into the program I felt like Neo from "the Matrix", Except instead of knowing Kung Fu, I knew HTML. It was amazing to see how fast we could learn each new concept or language. The instructors were masterful in keeping us engaged and helping us push ourselves. After Completing the course I am confident I have the skills to gain employment as a junior developer, my developer friends have confirmed this.
The decision to join devCodeCamp was definitely the best career decision I've ever made. My initial concerns were that this course was going to be way too much work for me. And in the beginning, it was a little overwhelming with how much information I was getting and how fast our course work was moving. However, once I got into the swing of things (and got used to the 7am start time) everything suddenly seemed to be much more manageable. The course was tough to be sure but was incredibly rewarding! The course work was always fun and engaging. I never had a project that I didn’t want to be doing. This was especially surprising to me because of my time in traditional education. Any time I would get an assignment from my professors at UWM, I would groan a hefty groan. So to be work...Read more
Ten years ago, after graduating high school, I started attending college for computer programming. I completed some courses, but life moved me in a different direction. Fast forward to June 2018, I decided to make a move back toward my goal of being a programmer. I have a friend who had gone through devCodeCamp and had landed an incredible job shortly after graduation, so I decided to also attend.
I’m not going to sugar-coat anything. The program is incredibly challenging. It is a fast-paced, full-time course where the goal is to go from zero experience to being ready for a real junior software developer job in 12 weeks. The course is built around solving real-world business problems the same way you would on the job. Google and Microsoft documentation will become your best friend! ...Read more
My experience in devCodeCamp has been nothing short of exceptional. The instructors are knowledgeable, approachable, and insightful. They do truly show professionalism and dedication towards their students. I came in with very little experience, and left with a knowledge level I did not think I could have achieved. I had a few family emergencies and events arise throughout the course and the instructors were very understanding, supportive and accommodating.
Thorough Instruction and Lectures
On Time Feedback
Less direct motivation for students performing well
At times loud in the work environment (If you say something, it is immediately addressed, so only really a half of a con)
The program at devCodeCamp is fast-paced and challenging. Patience, time-management, and self-determination are key to get all you can out of project based learning environment they offer. Overall, the instructors encourage autonomy, but at the same time are great motivators and draw from excellent content knowledge to answer questions. I really couldn't have imagined just how much the school would aid in my progression from very little experience to building full-stack web applications in ASP.NET MVC 5!
I went in with no coding experience. After a short time I was solving problems in ways I never thought about. The instructors were awesome, always available, and helpful along the way. After completing the program, they helped me connect with recruiters of great companies. With devCode in my corner, I was able to get my first development job. I'm excited for what the future holds.
My experience with devCodeCamp was really great because it is meant for my learning style. I have never really thrived in traditional classroom settings and the program is project based with introductory lectures. It's a lot of learning from failure and learning how to teach yourself new languages while giving you a foundation.
A lot of the reviews say that you could teach yourself everything they teach you through tutorials online, and that's true but the structure and support from being in a lab environment really helped direct me and keep my learning on course. I was lucky enough to have a very small group of 5 people and the more recent summer groups have been 12-20 people.
I was also fortunate enough to land a position immediately after graduation, while others it may take se...Read more
