DevMountain brings together people who share a passion for code: students with the drive to learn, instructors with real technical experience, and employers looking for talented programmers and developers. Committed to making coding accessible to everyone, DevMountain offers a projects-based curriculum and hands-on mentorship for all of its students that helps them learn the skills and build the portfolios that will ultimately land them jobs.
“My number one goal here was to get students excited about developing—to create an environment that students can come into, and there’s someone there that’s excited about teaching them tech,” says Ben Callis, an instructor for the program.
When students arrive, they are immediately greeted by DevMountain’s unique office space. High ceilings, exposed brick walls, and a spiral staircase are amazing, but even more incredible are the majestic mountains of Provo, Utah that are visible from every window. Even more, DevMountain recognizes when there’s a need for breaks from the computer screen and provides spaces for foosball, ping-pong, and dodgeball. When it comes to a healthy working environment, it’s clear that the team cares as much about getting fresh air on a hiking trip as it does about building great projects at hackathons.
Whether you’re a student, a teacher, or a staff member, DevMountain is a fun—and rewarding—place to be. “I love to see how much students progress from start to finish and to see it change their lives, their futures, and their careers,” shares Krissy Weekley, Head of Student Success.
