Our 6-week immersive software QA bootcamp will prepare you with everything you need to get your quality assurance certification. DevMountain empowers you with the skills you need to help you become a competitive candidate for junior-level software QA engineer positions. Instruction consists of instructor lectures, guest lecturers, guided projects, individual projects, group projects, and real projects with corporate clients. Students will work collaboratively with the lead instructor and mentors throughout the course. Through experience in specific languages and frameworks that are popular today, students can achieve a flexible outlook and become comfortable and eager to tackle new technologies in a fast-moving and ever-changing industry.
While working towards your quality assurance certification, you will be able to plug yourself into a culture of creating, building, and achieving success with like minded people. Our expert faculty love sharing their craft, and empowering the next wave of programmers and entrepreneurs.
At DevMountain’s immersive bootcamp, established QA engineers, alumni, and industry experts will all get involved in your certification. That makes for a perfect combination of mentors who know where you are starting, where you are at, and where you are going.
Work on real QA projects with real development teams. DevMountain has partnered with local tech companies to get you hands on QA training and placement, and experience on actual development projects
Our immersive quality assurance classes are accompanied by on-campus career guidance counselors. These counselors will work face-to-face with you throughout your QA training and placement, to help prepare you for a successful career in code.
You will also have the opportunity to build your resume and portfolio with help from our experienced career coaching team. You will work face-to-face with an expert to develop a job search plan that works best for you.
Our counselors will work with you to help you prepare for the job application process. You’ll go through mock interviews and learn all the tips and tricks of the trade, so that you will be ready to ace your first interview as a developer.
As graduate of DevMountain, you will receive lifetime access to our exclusive “Meet n’ Hire” events where you’ll be able to network with employers who are looking for awesome developers like you.
The course is rigorous, but we break up our schedule with lectures, presentations, labs and project building. A typical day at DevMountain campus could look like the example day schedule below.
Previous day reviews and code exercises that strengthen concepts and skills
Learn key objectives through guided practice, discussions, presentations, guest lectures and activities
Continue to work through lunch grab a bite at a local spot, or make your own at our on-campus kitchens
Guided practice with on-hand mentors to work on weekly, personal, and group projects. Work on labs solo or in groups. Receive over-the-shoulder help whenever it is needed
Regular check-ins from our student success crew, employer relations team, and instructors / mentors.
Many mentors live in DevMountain housing and stay on campus around the clock. Campus is open to mentors, employees, instructors, and of course students all day everyday!
Did someone say free housing? Yes. All full-time students can take advantage of DevMountain's free housing, available on a first come first serve basis. Housing is provided during your time in our program. No other code bootcamp offers anything like it.
Git, the de facto standard for source version control and team collaboration, has its own jargon, best practices, and workflows, enough to keep you busy for a while. Yet these tactics will be crucial in your contribution in the workplace and in securing, protecting and archiving code.
Developers love QA engineers who know their way around code. In this course, we will not dive as deep into JS as the immersive Web Developer course, but we’ll teach you enough to be a treasured asset to your developers.
Software testing trainings are an important part of quality assurance certification. We’ll start you off with the basics – manual test writing. You’ll learn all about the various tests you can use to test for — and expose — application weaknesses.
The next part of our software testing trainings is unit testing. Unit testing just means testing small units of a larger application as they are developed. This can help you find bugs faster. This course will teach you how to create and run effective unit tests.
Throughout the course of your software testing trainings, you will also learn how to create automated tests using Selenium and Protractor. These are two of the most common testing automation applications out there, and as such, essential for a quality assurance certification.
Sometimes called stress testing, this kind of software testing training allows you to assess how an application behaves when placed under different levels of demand. This course will teach you about stress testing concepts and tools.
As you get your quality assurance certification at DevMountain, we’ll teach you what a REST API is and how to create automated tests of performance, functionality, reliability, safety and security using Postman and SOAP.
Part of being an effective QA engineer is knowing how applications are developed. Agile is one of the most common development cycle methodologies. We’ll teach you all about backlogs, scrums, and sprints and how testing fits into the software development cycle.
DevMountain cares about giving our graduates the best possible chance to succeed beyond the bootcamp. To get a quality assurance certification — one that has real value in the world of work — it is important to have concrete experience to draw on, and to show to potential employers. One of the most unique things about this course is that we’ve worked with corporations to have our QA students work on actual software applications. Our QA training and placement program prepares our students with meaningful real-world know-how, hands on experience working with a development team, and a chance to sharpen their skills.
DevMountain's expert instructors are passionate about sharing their craft and empowering the next wave of programmers, entrepreneurs, and designers.
