"Beyond my expectations"

I placed a big bet on Devmountain considering I, as the sole breadwinner in my family of four, stopped working for thirteen weeks to become a developer. Although I had heard about Devmountain for years I still researched multiple other schools and camps.... Read More

Since I was looking to enroll a few months after COVID really became a global concern the tuition was heavily discounted and what used to be an in-person program was being offered in a remote context. I couldn't ignore the value and accessibility Devmountain was offering so decided it was time to make the plunge--and I'm so glad I did.

From the beginning I got a sense that Devmountain, which had been around for a while at that point, was pushing to innovate and improve their program. Their student experience and outcomes departments especially were two services I hadn't fully considered when shopping for bootcamps and they delivered beyond my expectations. The outcomes department has been revamped within the past year and provides a huge network of past grads, recruiter networking, mentoring opportunities, career prep resources, as well as job search and interview training. The student experience department reached out consistently throughout my thirteen weeks, just checking in to make sure I was doing well and to be a third party I could talk to beyond the instructional/mentor staff. My student experience manager even responded to some messages I sent her while she was out of office traveling to a family wedding and a I was having a particularly overwhelming day.

The Devmountain staff pushed us as a group yet allowed for us to learn as individuals at our own pace while making themselves available as resources at every point.

I can't express enough how much I felt like they more than delivered on the their promises. I couldn't have made this change at this point in my life without my experience at Devmountain (or at least made this change as confidently).

There were a few things that could have been better. I had fairly consistent problems accessing lecture recordings for review. That mostly had to do with the platform we were using (GoToMeeting) and the growing pains of switching an in-person learning experience to a remote one. For the most part I was able to work around those hiccups though and access recordings of the same content from other cohorts who were behind and ahead of me.

Devmountain has been a game changer in my life and career. I'm so excited for what I've learned there and I feel like I have the tools to push myself and keep progressing on my own. I can't recommend Devmountain enough.

Something to consider: The Devmountain instructional experience is heavily dependent on the instructor. I got to try a few "samples" of different instructors by checking out past lecture recordings and on days where another cohort's instructor subbed for our instructor. Luckily the curriculum was uniform but I definitely found that, at least for me, the instructor was the biggest factor on the quality of my learning beyond just my own practice and self-guided study. I never had an experience with a bad instructor during my time, but definitely felt like having a bad or less competent instructor could have easily ruined my experience. Again, from what I can tell, Devmountain is aware of this and seems to provide the best instructors they can find. No complaints, just something to consider when making your choice.

"Best Decision I Ever Made"

"Do it NOW!"

After completing I took a unpaid internship at a startup while I looked for work, it didn't last long. I got hired 1 month to the day of completing based on the networking I had done which was part of curriculum of the course.

It's been a year and a month since I completed, my life is completley different now. I make 2x more money then I've ever made in my life, I actually am excited about the job I do and its interesting and challenging.

The company I work for prefers DevMountain QA's opposed to other applicants due to the skill set that course teaches.
