At our Houston coding bootcamp we believe you were born to write code — to use your intelligence and problem solving to create awesome things. We believe you belong in a job that values you — that cares about your skills and personality. We believe you belong here with us.
This is a place for people like you to learn, interact, and jumpstart your lives together. Make lifelong friends in 13 weeks and learn the skills for a new career for as little as $5k with our in-person coding courses. (Scholarships and financing are available.)
In over a decade of teaching web development bootcamps, we’ve never asked anyone to buy an overpriced textbook or enroll in extra classes they didn’t need.
Instead, you’ll focus on what you care about — writing code and completing real-world projects for your portfolio — with instructors who care and classmates who also love knowing the secrets behind the machine.
Hit the “skip intro” button on your life and get straight to the good stuff.
Every Wednesday we host a Virtual Open House with a Devmountain instructor and an admissions counselor to talk about our courses, what to expect when applying, and why we think you’ll love Devmountain if you’re serious about pursuing a new career.
We’ll also be sure to answer any questions you have about our programs. Ask us anything!
Let us know you’re coming! Share your name and email. We’ll look forward to hosting you. We’ll also send links to stories plus information and helpful tips about the application process.
By providing your information, you consent to receive occasional special promotional offers and education opportunities by phone, text message and email via automated technology from Strayer University and its partner Capella University.

“At Devmountain I found exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to be fully immersed in an environment where I was being taught web development skills while surrounded by passionate instructors, mentors, and peers.”

Houston is a city that has it all: diverse and inclusive people, delicious food, die-hard fans, and a thriving arts scene. It’s like a big, friendly melting pot of innovation and culture. Whether you’re into rockets, rodeos, or Ramen, Houston is the place.
And don’t forget the many Fortune 500 companies and entrepreneurial spirit! If you’re ready to take your seat at the table, we’ll see you in the Jersey Village off Beltway 8.
Rooted in the past and looking to the future, Devmountain is a part of Strayer University, which has been around since 1892! As a student, you’ll become part of our community and be able to enjoy what our Houston campus has to offer.

The typical Houston coding bootcamp student is a busy student. We might have bills, work, spouses, kids, and more all competing for our time. Most of us can’t take four years off to “find ourselves” and finish a degree.
That’s the beauty of a coding bootcamp. By being completely disruptive for a short amount of time, it’s less disruptive overall.
You could plod away, sacrifice hundreds of nights and weekends, forget what you learned in earlier classes, and hope nothing pops up to change your schedule over the next few years, or you could just rip the bandage off and learn full-stack development as fast as you can.
It’s sort of like choosing to hold your breath for a minute rather than being completely out of breath for a month.
We think deep down you can feel there’s something waiting for you — a chance to hone your skills, earn respect, and claim a spot in the life you deserve.
So what are you waiting for? Nothing changes unless you do.
Traditional paths and four-year degrees may not work for everyone, and some coding bootcamps either charge a lot more, have much less experience, or don’t have a campus in Houston. The first step in getting where you belong is being here with us.
First, students must be 18 years old by the time their course begins, have a high school diploma (or its equivalent), and complete an application.
Second, you will need to be able to attend classes, in-person, at our Houston bootcamp.
There are two ways to answer this question.
First, our full-stack Houston bootcamp is designed so that people with basic computer literacy should be able to graduate. For instance, you don’t need to have been coding since the days of Fortran, but you should feel comfortable installing programs and apps on your computer without regularly asking someone for help.
Second, all that said, we aren’t sure why anyone would choose to study something they have no experience with. A little experience with programming will not only help you complete your coding course, but it will help you feel confident that you’re studying something you enjoy.
It’s called a “bootcamp” for a reason.
Students learning to code in Houston should be busy for about eight hours a day for five days a week, with some homework scattered through your nights and weekends.
In the first part of the program, students have regular lectures with time to practice what they’ve been taught. In the second half, they will largely do project work with the help of fellow students and Devmountain staff.
This is hard to pin down because so much of the bootcamp environment will depend on the people you study with, and each cohort is different.
Often times our students become friends in a way only possible when people accomplish something really hard together. When everyone is working together, swapping ideas, or letting off steam, there is a bit of electricity in the air. It’s fun. (Especially for those of us who just get to sit back and watch.)
More than once we’ve heard students say that campus was one of the few places where they really felt like they belonged.
As for amenities, those will differ by campus. You can see some information about the Houston coding bootcamp amenities below. Reach out to an admissions counselor if you’d like to know more.
We also hope you’ll learn how to solve problems, find answers, work together, have a great time (even under stress), hit deadlines, and believe in yourself.
If you’d like more details, feel free to register for an info session below or reach out to an admissions counselor.
Neither we, nor anyone else in the universe, knows this for sure. (If we could predict the future, we’d be too busy getting kicked out of casinos.)
We encourage you to look at our published Outcomes Report and research salary information from reputable sources online. Just keep in mind that salaries vary a lot by circumstance and region—a dollar in New York or San Francisco does not have the same buying power as a dollar in Salt Lake or Dallas, and a brand new professional often won’t make as much as the average professional.
We understand the desire to be reassured, but this isn’t something anyone can know in advance. (And beware of anyone who tells you they can.)
What we can tell you is our Outcomes Team tracks each and every recent graduate and their employment status. They are ready to help you polish your LinkedIn profile, optimize your resume, prepare for interviews, and help in many other ways.
If you want to learn more, we encourage you to look at our published Outcomes Report and research job demand from reputable sources. As you do so, keep in mind demand can vary a lot by circumstance and region, and high demand is still not a guarantee of employment.
We cannot tell you how much you might spend, but we can tell you how much we will charge. Tuition for our Houston in-person Web Development Bootcamp is $5,000 (with limited scholarships available).
Some students choose to finance their tuition with loans, sometimes including a cost of living stipend. How much those students pay will be affected by the terms of their agreements with the lenders.
Finally, some students may buy new computers or choose to supplement their training with other resources.
Of course! Feel free to join our Discord Hub.
Applications have three parts.
First, you’ll fill out your personal information, which usually takes around 15 minutes.
Next, you’ll schedule a consultation with an admissions counselor. (This is our chance to make sure you’re a real person and your chance to ask any questions.) This can take 15-30 minutes.
Finally, you’ll complete a skill review, which can give you an idea of whether you’re ready for the program or what you might need to work on first. This is done online and usually takes about 30 minutes.
Once you’ve completed all that, you should receive an admissions decision. At that point, it’s up to you whether you want to move forward and enroll or pursue other options. There is no commitment until you make a seat deposit.
It’s a coding thing. If you don’t already know about it, you should totally enroll for the best coding bootcamp in Houston to learn more.
Do you have a different question? Well, aren’t you precocious! Feel free to reach out to us any time about any old thing.
