I loved my experience with Devmountain. About 3 months after graduating, I was offered a full stack developer job that would have paid $85k plus benefits, but I stupidly turned it down. It took me another 3 months to find a job that pays $54k per year with almost no benefits. Devmountain teaches you most of the skills you need to be a full stack developer. I wished they had about 3 weeks more of training to cover some more of the basics that I have learned on my own since graduating. Since I...
Pros
I learned the skills necessary to be an entry full stack developer.
Cons
When I was there oh, they did not help you find jobs very well. The advice I received was almost worthless in a job.

Great Software QA Program

I enjoyed my time at Devmountain. It was one of the few (if not the only) Bootcamp that offered Software QA. I learned so much about manual testing & test automation during the 6-week program & I’d do it all over again.
Pros
- Support from instructors - Curriculum - Up-to-date tools & lessons
Cons
- A lot of employers are looking for a deeper understanding of JavaScript. I couldn’t even pass the badge test on LinkedIn. - Finding a job is really tough. Using my skills in another role unrelated to QA

Disclaimer: I attended DevMountain during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic so all courses were remote during this time. I lived in a different area of the country and never visited campus once. As with all experiences in life, a person will only get as much out of a bootcamp as they put into it. Students are encouraged to ask questions, collaborate within the cohort, and be accountable for their own learning process. It's an incredibly supportive institution but they also expect you to care about...
Pros
- Lower cost than competing bootcamps. - Instructors care deeply and are invested in the success of the students throughout the program (and post grad). - Outcomes team communicates with graduates throughout the last half of the course and...
Cons
- Communication was poor prior to first day of class. - Meetings or events would occasionally be scheduled on top of each other showing that different staff members weren't communicating; probably due to the remote environment. - Outcomes...

I felt as though for a lot of the work, they are all requiring bachelors of science AND something like this on top of it, which they are rather misleading with. It's hard to get a job in the field initially, and after my class,
Pros
I felt like we were fully immersed and worked hard, I felt like I was able to understand everything I needed to progress and fill out my abilities to code
Cons
I felt like I wasn't able to do nearly any of this afterward on my own

Course could have been fit into 2 weeks not 6 weeks. Instructor had zero work experience and only had taken the QA bootcamp previously for his total amount of experience. Instructor was not the teacher advertised or promised that had 10 years industry experience. The last week of the course we just sat around with nothing to do because all the students had finished up the course work. I did get lucky and found a job in the field quickly, without the bootcamp I would not have got the position,...
Pros
DevMountain has a respected name generally in the workforce Provides housing if needed Got to go to an actual company (field trip) and test their software with that companies QA team
Cons
Support to help get a job is minimal, no connections to help you get a job, just critique of resume and linked in. WAY overpriced for what you get. Teacher knew less than some students on specific topics. Lots of time wasted, need to use...

DevMountain is a great choice if you are looking for straight forward education on the topics that are hot in the industry. Although they are smaller than some bootcamp (in terms of locations nationwide) they are a smart choice if you need housing or to remain close to where you work/live. Because if the smaller culture, you get a very personalized experience and no time is wasted on frivolous activities. You code every day from the first to the last and they are not shy about helping you get...
Pros
Great teachers and mentors , supportive staff in the office. Housing is included if you need it and parking in the garage if not. If you don't use the housing you can still have access to the amenities of the high rise where they conduct...
Cons
Not many locations nation wide.

I had been working as a manual QA tester and wanted to add automation to my resume. It was an excellent career move to attend the 6-week QA bootcamp. I would have preferred a more rigorous course curriculum at times and the main course instructor did not have as much experience as I would have liked, but the head of the program was always available for questions and the quality of everything you get by going to Devmountain was very much worth it. I had a wonderful experience and got the job...
Pros
Great people, small class size, excellent curriculum that really prepared me for my next job.
Cons
Instructor with limited experience, a lot of review at the beginning for people who have already worked in a QA role.

I had looked into several different boot camps. In fact, I had looked into them for a few years before finally deciding DevMountain was the Right place for me. As you would expect from a condensed program like this, it is extremely fast-paced. I would recommend to only attend this school if you can give it your undivided attention. I was putting between 10-12 hours each day for the first 2 months. At that point, it was mostly project-based so I was putting in around 8-9 hours a day. The great...
Pros
Honesty, integrity, support, reputation, quality, future-oriented
Cons
It is an accelerated course so it is time-consuming. They also cover things very quickly so you may not be able to feel very confident in a language or process before they move onto the next topic.

I learned so much about web development during my time at DevMountain thanks to the amazing mentors and instructors. However, I wish it were longer program - long enough to feel more secure when trying to land my first job in the industry. However, I don't regret the decision I made of going. It changed my life for the better!
Pros
The instructions were great. DevMountain had after hour study sessions with mentors (a few extra times a week) which was extremely helpful.
Cons
The program wasn't long enough. Yes, I learned so much in the 13 weeks I was there but i definitely didn't feel ready to enter the workforce after leaving. I think a program twice as long would have been much better. I also thought the...

Overall, I loved my experience at DevMountain. It was really hard and extremely rewarding. The curriculum was thorough and the instructors and mentors that I had were fantastic. I learned a ton, at least enough to build a couple web apps and get an internship only a few months after graduating. Learning web development is hard, especially when you only have 13 weeks to do it. Many of my classmates never found a job or gave up looking. Web development is not for everyone. You will only be...
Pros
- Mentors there to help you when you're stuck - I prefer in-person instruction to remote - Taught all the latest and most relevant technologies

Overall, I had a really great experience. <$10k for 13 weeks of quality instruction--and an environment conducive to learning web development and making connections with likeminded folks--was a great value relative to the price tag. The cost factor was the main reason I went with DevMountain, as I couldn't fathom spending $10k-$20k+ on a boot camp (at that point, you're probably better off just going to a local community college and then transfer to an in-state accredited 4-year Bachelors in CS...
