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.
This is a great program that literally takes you from knowing nothing about coding to being able to hold down a (well-paying) job in a very short amount of time. What more is there to say?? The instructors are nice, the atmosphere is relaxing, and the hours are good.
I went from working on the weekends as a janitor to being employed as a test engineer. I spent 3 months learning coding at devCodeCamp, and about 3 months after graduation I had a job. It's a happenin' field that is only going up, so I'd suggest hopping on the bandwagon!
A word of caution, though--it's not for everyone. Not everyone is willing to give their all, be frustrated continuously (it's part of the learning process), and not quit. Make sure you want to do all of these things, and you will succeed!

I wholeheartedly recommend for anyone looking to work in development.
devCode works. Period. Full stop.
I have seen it work for dozens and dozens of grads.
I came to devCode in the spring of '17, looking to start a second career as a software developer. With an English Major and six years of experience teaching English, I exemplify the kind of person who you don't expect to become a software developer. And indeed. when I started at devCode in March 2017, I had no piror knowledge of coding whatsoever. Yet here I am today, less than a year after I started at devCode, five months into a new career as a developer.
It is worth mentioning that everyone at devCode will tell you how hard it is and they are not kidding. It's stressful as heck and very demanding of your time and energy. That said, almost everyone survives devCode and comes out on the oth...Read more
devCodeCamp was an exceptionally valuable experience for me and my fellow students. My title, "If you want it, you can get it here" simply means, if you have the drive and motivation to learn to code, devCodeCamp will help you realize that potential. It is absolutely a "you get what you put into it" type of environment and I mean that in the most positive of terms - no one is going to do the work for you, HOWEVER, they will guide you through the learning process and the most valuable asset you will leave with is the ability to teach yourself ANYTHING. There is no shortage of encouragement or positivity - so when you're in the midst of a challenge and you've spent 2+ hours working on a single broken line of code, all you'll want is for someone to GIVE you the answer so you can move on.....Read more
There were many great things about devCodeCamp when I went there. I really liked the environment and the feel of the bootcamp. The instructors did a great job at making sure you had the tools necessary to do well and learn the thing you needed to learn. That being said they did not ever directly give you the answer, but they did show you where you may find the answer. The only time they would directly give you an answer is when they show that you were at your wits end. I thought that the course material was really good for the duration of the course. I know they are always looking at what the local businesses are looking for and they tailor the course material to them to stay relevant and up to date. After completing the course the job search began and I found that they were so helpful ...Read more
I had extensive sales experience prior to attending devCodeCamp, and didn't see a future for myself in that field. devCodeCamp was a lifeline out of a dead end job.
The coursework was challenging and informative. The instructors at devCodeCamp taught you how to think like a software developer by teaching you the basics and letting you learn a fair amount on your own through your own research and projects. After completing the coursework, I was able to land a job with a great company, increasing my salary drastically.
If you are thinking of a new career path, you owe it to yourself to consider devCodeCamp. Go in and talk to them, and see if it's a good fit for you.
devCodeCamp is everything it claims to be. Before enrolling, they make sure to explain that the program requires hard work and there are no guarantees. You have to be dedicated. I put in time after class and used outside resources, just like you would have to on the job. I learned coding and problem-solving skills. And I learned how to learn things that I haven't been taught. I'm starting my job search and it's looking promising. The staff is supportive and projects are interesting and challenging.
I came to devCodeCamp with no coding experience and very little computer skills whatsoever. I was 19, just barely out of high-school. All I had coming in was an interest in coding and a passion for building new things. There were times I excelled, and times I struggled, but pushed through it and completed the course learning more than I ever thought was possible in such a short period of time. It was by far one of the most challenging things I have ever done and I don't regret a single minute of it. A little pricey for the short length of the course, but it helped me land a great job and I couldn't be more thankful for devCodeCamp jump-starting my career path.
I came to devCode with very little to no experience writing code. Throughout the 14 weeks in this camp I learned more than I could have ever expected to. It's all about what you put into it. They teach you the skills you need to be successful, help with getting your resume clean and relative, and then it's up to you to continue the process and go find a job. I showed up everyday, even after I finished the program, until I got a job. They helped me all along the way because I was putting in the effort... if you're expecting a walk in the park course this isn't for you. It's intense. But I now have a wonderful job doing something I truly love everyday at one of the biggest company's in the state and I'm loving life.
Up to you!
I attended devCodeCamp in the spring of 2017. My background included work in transportation research, and teaching. I had previously obtained two majors and a masters degree from traditional colleges, but didn't have success finding gainful employment in Southern Wisconsin. So I decided to retool my skill set. I had always enjoyed the introductory programming courses I took in college and had some experience with WordPress website development on the side, but wanted to expand my programming knowledge and hopefully get into the software engineering career-field.
devCodeCamp is as fun as it is intense. It's a lot different than traditional 4-year college or technical schools. They really believe in learning by doing. Your results are largely reflected by the effort, dedication, and wil...Read more
My initial reaction was that the tuition was beyond my budget, and if I invested money and time into this, I NEEDED to get something out of it. dCC (devCodeCamp) was honest with me from the beginning, that employment is not guaranteed and the course would entail long hours and dedication for the next 3 months. I was very confident in my ability to succeed in the course, but I was unsure and new to the software development field. I didn’t know whether completion of the course would set me up for a rewarding job. Having only heard of success stories from previous dCC graduate reviews, I made the decision to enroll, unsure of my future.
As with any institution, dCC is not perfect. There are things that need improvement which I won’t go into detail, because what’s important is that dCC...
As a freelance photographer and graphic designer, I had been thinking about what I my skillset was missing. After doing some research, I found that learning to code would be the most advantageous. The trio of photography, design, and coding (full stack) could work so well together. The problem was I didn't know where to start or what everything meant in the coding realm.
A friend recommended devCodeCamp. After the initial tour, I scheduled a follow up, where I asked 30+ questions about the program, what skills were taught, and what the expectations were.
This program is a bootcamp. You need to be dedicated, you need to work hard, and you need to basically put life on hold until you’ve finished. It makes the world of difference and the reward is worth it.
All to say dCC gave me...Read more
**First, I would like to clarify that my review of devCodeCamp is on my own free will. While reviewing any program that someone has just attended is always encouraged, there is no incentive or reward for me to write this, which is what some other reviews have indicated and is simply not true.**
devCodeCamp is not for everyone, period. It is not anyone who is unmotivated or ambitionless. It is a program for those who are driven to learn a valuable skill and establish a foundation which can be built upon in one of the fastest growing industries right now.
My relationship with devCodeCamp started about a year before I decided to enroll. I met with Mike and Paul, an Instructor and The Director of Operations respectively, and they didn’t pull any punches telling me what to expect at a...Read more
They teach you everything you need to know to be a jr developer. More importantly they teach you how to teach yourself which is a crucial skill to have as a developer considering there are new technologies all the time.
I recently acquired a job and while it took me a long time I can say that dCC was there for me the entire time. They hooked me up with presentations and interviews until I finally received a job. As long you come in to the camp here and there, dCC will keep helping you.
All and all I highly recommend devCodeCamp to anyone looking to be a jr developer.
i attended devcodecamp with no prior experience like they advertise and completed the course in 14 weeks at the time I could say it was the smartest thing I have done. As soon as I started looking for jobs the communication stopped completely. I was ignored by the staff and instructors I once called mentors it was surprising how as soon as I graduated the instructors like flipped. It took me over a week to hear back after messaging each instructor. I filled out applications with them as references and little do I find out later that they have been ignoring my references calling them. Not only have they not assisted me what's so ever in finding a job but then they removed me from the slack channel so I can no longer go to them for help. I'm not saying this school did not teach me but whe...Read more
First off, let me say that I would recommend devCodeCamp to everyone that I know who is serious about coding and tired of the plain old curriculum or cost of traditional schooling. I went into this without any actual programming experience until I started the pre-course work. Throughout this program, you gain valuable experience programming in several different languages as well as working in a team based environment. More than that though, devCodeCamp provides you with a conductive environment where there are people in all steps of the program so that you have the ability to learn from others as well as teach the people in the earlier classes. All this taken into account, the greatest things that I have taken away from devCodeCamp was the incredible community, the work ethic you gain,...Read more
I was interested and took a tour. I decided to enroll because devCodeCamp promised to provide what I would need to learn to be able to get a job as a software developer in 14 weeks. My expectations matched up with what I experienced during the course. We typically spent some time getting an introduction to a topic and the rest of our time doing exercises or building projects. It was very hands on and much different from taking a regular class or tutorial to learn how to code.
Everyone you talk to will be very clear that you will get out of it what you put into it. I had to work long hours every day learning very difficult material at a very fast pace. Much of the course is spent on learning how to do things on your own under a deadline, which should prepare you for a work envir...Read more
I have always had an interest in coding but never pursued it during college. After I graduated I went into retail and stayed there for a little over a year and found myself not satisfied with what I was doing.
This is where I found reviews of devCodeCamp on Facebook and decided to give it a tour. Going into the program, I had little to no experience in coding and now, through this course, I have received more from this course than I had first anticipated. Now I have a job at a great company and pursuing something I love.
I would recommend this course for anyone that loves to problem solve and loves a challenge. This course challenges you throughout and you definitely get what you put into this course. I am proud to have graduated from dCC.
I had always been fascinated with computers and coding. Before attending devcodecamp I had read several books and tried some work on code academy. All that did was leave me frustrated. When I came across devcodecamp I decided to give this boot camp a try after visiting their cool classrooms, meeting with an instructor and talking to current students. My biggest fear was could I really do this and be successful. Initially it's hard to believe that a 12 week program is long enough to take you from ground zero to actually knowing how to make apps. But, their method of immersing you every single day actually works. The instructors are there to always help and are great in helping you understand the concepts but giving you the methods to learn how to solve and develop on your own. I now mis...Read more
