Programs Available: Coding Bootcamps
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.
I started my training at devCodeCamp with ZERO prior experience. I came from a construction and military background, but I was determined to take on software development and was still apprehensive about being able to pick it up in 12 weeks. My apprehension was misplaced - devCodeCamp delivered on their promise to go from zero to hero within 12 weeks.
The whole course is a learn by doing environment, which for me was the key to my success. I wasn't overwhelmed with theory or memorizing lists of vocabulary words, I was hands-on coding nearly 95% of the time.
The instructional staff was knowledgeable and accommodating when it came to the barrage of questions I would ask on a regular basis. There was no question to small or to big and the responses they would provide would help me f...Read more
Now if you're reading this I'm sure you have doubts in your mind about if a boot camp is really worth it and does it work. I'm here to tell you it that it's more than worth it. Coming into devCodeCamp I had no prior knowledge about how to code and I was worried that I wouldn't understand concepts. Day by day though I kept at it, strengthening my knowledge of how to code. Don't get it wrong though this class isn't a walk in the park, it's a boot camp, challenging but in a great way. If you continue to put forth the effort you will see the results in a tremendous way. The instructors at dCC are always right there along your side to help you understand and push you in the right direction. The environment is perfect for a learning atmosphere, you build relationships with...Read more
Did you get a job? I waited to write a review for the course until I got hired but now, I am so here it is:
I started out as everyone else, skeptical, and unsure about the amount of money to be spent. I can now say in certainty it was all worth and a small price to pay to launch myself in such a lucrative new career. I landed a job as a Full Stack Developer within less than one month of graduating! Full time salary work with the job title I was shooting for. Not only did I get hired so quick, there were multiple opportunities for interviews and potential places of employment.
What is it like?
The course it tough, fast paced, but all graspable. You have top notch instructors that really do enjoy teaching you. As time goes on you see yourself as part of the whole devCodeCamp sy...Read more
More than just learning syntax, devCodeCamp teaches you what it really means to be a developer: to always be learning new things, setting goals for yourself, and most importantly, keep doing it! Watching tutorials and playing around on [free coding website]* will only get you so far, you really do need to fully immerse in it. (*I did all those things prior so no judgement. I could build a decent looking website but becoming a Full Stack Developer is an entirely different beast.) The staff at dCC really believe in what they do and will check in to make sure you are always working on something. The bootcamp experience certainly requires discipline and sacrifice (Paul's initial assessment that "we don't expect you to put aside 100% of your life, but maybe 80% of it for this" was pretty ac...Read more
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
