"I have found a community of individuals who I feel comfortable working and learning alongside of. Previously, I always felt that I would never know enough, never be competent enough, and never qualified enough to do anything in the field. Attending a coding boot camp has helped me recognize that we are all learning, and even those who I would consider masters in their field are constantly evolving and learning new skills. My experience at DevPoint Labs has helped me find a place where I can fit into a community that previously seemed out of reach to me." Michael B., DPL Graduate
"My life has definitely changed for the better because I now know that my opportunities are endless! I am happier after the boot camp because I know that I’ll be working in a creative space and that my family’s future will be bright." Bianca H., DPL Graduate
"It was a really important step for my career. The exposure to the concepts was structured and clear. Also, working on a team of people who I had almost nothing in common with was extremely valuable. I was frustrated for most of it, but launch day was really profound. I felt like I didn’t know anything, but I am so much more confident learning new concepts and discussing them with a team." Sam T., DPL Graduate
"To sum it up in one word, intense. Which was the perfect fit for me. I dive head first into everything, and DPL’s full time course let me do just that. Diving into something with so many passionate people helped me feel welcome in a world that I didn’t feel smart enough for growing up. The community around the school is astounding, I’ve met so many great people because of the community. I even landed my first job from the DPL slack channel." Reece B., DPL Graduate
"Well, it’s dramatically impacted it for the better. I am now currently working remote and traveling the country. My wife and I are working on building a web design business on the side and already have a few clients. It’s allowed me to live the lifestyle that i’ve wanted. We move to Miami in the next couple weeks and we’ll be living on the beach for at least a month. I am able to work flexible hours, travel, and exercise my creative muscles. That’s what I wanted from my career and now that’s what I have. Which I never expected to have in a million years. I’ve really lucked out." Dean B., DPL Graduate
