DevMountain Announces Full-Time "Immersive" Web Development Bootcamp, Offers Free Housing as Perk
PROVO, Utah --(Business Wire)--
has opened applications for its first "Immersive" (full-time) bootcamp
at its Provo, Utah, location. The full-time class will increase emphasis
on job readiness and a greater level of code education immersion.
The full-time class will be hosted at Camp 4 in Provo, Utah. "We're
creating a Hacker Central, of sorts," Cahlan Sharp (News - Alert), CEO said. "The
immersive program will offer everything an aspiring developer needs in
order to become a full-stack web developer."
While most comparable coding programs in the United States are charging
more than $12,000, DevMountain has capped tuition cost at $7,900. "Our
goal is tomake the most impactful, accessible, and affordable camp. You
can get a metro-quality coding bootcamp education for a lot more
affordable price," Sharp adds.
As a unique perk, DevMountain also plans to offer free housing for
bootcamp participants. "Students tell us that one of the limitations
they face when they want to attend is finding safe, affordable housing,"
Sharp says. "Because securing a lease on an apartment on a short-term,
three-month basis can be such a daunting task for someone who plans to
attend from out of state, we've determined that eliminating that
headache would be a great benefit to our students."
Without the worry of housing, DevMountain students can focus 100% of
their attention on learning. The collaborative environment also makes it
possible to socialize and interact with other students outside of class.
Other perks also include a free recreation/fitness pass and a free
public transportation pass.
"Many of our 'high stakes' learners are fully-invested in the concept of
making their living as coders," Sharp says. "They want a program that
allows them to prepare for employment opportunities, but will give them
an even stronger background in a wider variety of coding
languages--attributes that make them especially attractive candidates
for highly-compensated positions in the technology field. No other
schooling option currently offers a dedicated, invested student a
similar fast track to success and job security, and while other coding
bootcamps charge more, we are convinced that our curriculum is equally
The first course will be limited to 20 students and will begin�September
8, 2014. Financing for the course is available.
