Today we are announcing the opening of a new DevMountain location in Phoenix, Arizona which will allow us to continue our mission of bringing together a world-class education and affordability to empower the next generation of coders and entrepreneurs. Specifically those in and around “The Grand Canyon State.”
DevMountain thrives where tech, entrepreneurship and community intersect. Phoenix is the largest city in Arizona and as of 2010, Phoenix, the capital of Arizona, is ranked as the sixth most populous city in the United States. Phoenix boasts a thriving tech community with a vibrant entrepreneurial vein. Phoenix is the cultural center of the Valley of the Sun, as well as the entire state. Why wouldn’t we want to be a part of that? By opening a location in Arizona, we want to enrich PHX’s vibrant developing community and we hope to see many new programmers and entrepreneurs emerge from our coding bootcamp.
Classes Starting This Summer
Our coding bootcamp in Phoenix will open it’s door this summer, with an Immersive Web Development Course starting on August 21, 2017, with other course offerings sure to follow. You can read more about the Phoenix Web Development course here, as DevMountain is accepting applications for the PHX course now.
Just like its western counterparts, the Phoenix cohort will last for 13 weeks and is perfect for those who are just beginning to code as well as those who have already had some exposure to coding. We want passionate, hard-working individuals who want a life-changing experience.
Our Phoenix students will be immersed in code, spending days living and breathing code, and in the end, gaining valuable skills which will further career opportunities, skills or your entrepreneurial ambitions. Like our bootcamps in Provo, Salt Lake City, and Dallas, the Phoenix bootcamp will include 10-12 hour days of intense instruction, critical 1-on-1 mentoring, and hands-on real-world projects.
There is a lot of positive energy that reverberates between entrepreneurship and coding schools. That’s why DevMountain has partnered with the City of Phoenix to find an ideal location in Downtown Phoenix for our very first cohort in the Phoenix, AZ area. Together we have identified an amazing space that will be held above an energetic and thriving coworking space, The Department. The Department is an awesome, artistic community of makers and creators in art, business, and technology.
Cahlan Sharp, founder and CEO of DevMountain, puts it this way: “DevMountain Phoenix is a no brainer for us. DevMountain has always been committed to cultivating talent and the Phoenix area is a perfect fit. There are so many brilliant and amazing individuals who are ready to take the next step in their careers. We are ready to equip them with the necessary tools to make things happen for them.”
“The one thing we hear most from most developing tech-scenes around the country is about the lack of engineering talent. If any city, state, or area is going to continue to flourish, there needs to be a talent resource. In Phoenix, DevMountain will be that answer. With initiatives like DevMountain, will be that much closer to becoming a self-sufficient startup, tech, and business ecosystem.”
With an awesome location in the heart of downtown and a community of passionate builders, there is no better place to locate a DevMountain cohort.
Housing and Financing
Because we believe in a truly immersive and focused experience, we will provide students with fully furnished, free housing during time spent in the program. Learners can then focus on developing coding skills. No other school offers this amenity.
If applying students need help with tuition, DevMountain has solutions for them. Thanks to DevMountain’s third-party financing providers, students can apply for an affordable and convenient financing plan. The DevMountain specific loans range in length from 1-3 years and are designed to provide students with the best option tailored specifically to individual needs.
Our first cohort in Phoenix begins July 17, 2017. Come join us for this learning journey and gain new skills that will further your career and transform you into a highly sought engineer. Applications are now open.
