Britt came to DevMountain because she was frustrated with the disconnect between academia and real-world application in traditional education programs. Wanting a more direct path between what she learned and her future career, Britt began looking at coding boot camps. At DevMountain, she found the supportive, streamlined, and fast-paced learning environment she craved.
Britt reads and attends lectures to learn the core principles of each coding concept. Then she applies her new knowledge through hands-on assignments, using her instructors, mentors, and fellow students as resources. Once she has mastered a concept, Britt can use it in her own individual project and in future group projects.
“I’ve learned how to learn. I’ve been exposed to the principles and concepts of programming and coding, and that will enable me to go on to learn other languages and frameworks and build on that foundation.”
“The culture here is very encouraging. Everyone is working on the same thing and helping each other, and that communal aspect has helped me to improve a lot faster.”
