Recent iOS grad Parker Donat decided when he started his bootcamp journey that he would document his experience each day with a tweet. Reading through the tweets, you can see both the growth and challenges he faced as he progresses through the course. We spoke with Parker about his experience and highlighted some of his tweets below.
If you’re considering taking our iOS course, you should check out Parker’s full Twitter timeline to sneak a peek into the DevMountain experience.
What was your background before DevMountain?
I come from a Social Media and Content Marketing background. I really liked what I did but couldn’t see myself doing Social my for my whole career. I was already tinkering with code in my free time and felt like a bootcamp would help me learn what I needed to know.
What made you decide to enroll in the iOS program?
I have always been interested in iOS development, but what really helped me was my fiancé (now wife) was enrolled in the Part-Time Web class and she took me to her Demo Night. I talked to her for months about how I wanted to do the full-time iOS class. That’s what really made me want to get enrolled. The other thing that helped choose iOS was I liked my job but wanted to create more opportunities for me and my family. So I talked to my boss and felt like it was the right time to make a career change.
