I was part of the latest full time web dev cohort (Jan - Mar 2015). We had a great group of students and instructors. Before this I was working in a software company providing product support. I had been trying to learn to code over the past three years... Read More but decided I needed an immersive experience. I can safely say I learned far more in 12 weeks at Devmountain than in the previous 3 years of self study.
The building they are in is really cool (its a former candy factory built in the 1800s). There is a ton of space and you can go there any time of day to code (I spent most of my nights coding in the loft).
I highly recommend Devmountain. No matter where you are in terms of education or career it will equip you to build something useful
I just finished up the immersive web development course last week and can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The course was very challenging, and there was no shortage of frustration while learning, but talk to ANYONE with... Read More coding experience and they will say that it's a necessary evil. I can't believe how much I learned in a quick 3 months. Comparing my skill set before and after the cohort is a joke! All the hard work most definitely payed off. I can't stress enough how awesome the DevMountain experience was, go for it!
"Best thing I've ever done for my professional development"
Like the title of my review says, attending DevMountain was the best decision I've made for my professional development. Just before applying DevMountain, I had tried to learn through Codeacademy, Treehouse, and MIT online courses, but I felt overwhelmed... Read More by the sheer volume of information out there with everybody suggesting I learn this language or that framework. I didn't know what to do.
My friend suggested that I look into attending a coding bootcamp, and after comparing several different ones, I picked DevMountain. I liked that they offered a curriculum that taught the MEAN stack. I also liked that they boasted a high job placement rate at a LOW cost. I don't think there's anywhere else in the country that includes housing in the cost of tuition.
The instructors at DevMountain were awesome, and the mentors provided excellent support. DevMountain not only how to build web application, but how to continue learning throughout my career. I recommend DevMountain to anybody who is passionate about learning and loves a good challenge.
