DevMountain now has cohorts in Dallas, Phoenix, Provo, and Salt Lake City.
I’ve been to Phoenix a few times and in those visits, I’ve learned a few things.
- They have pro sports teams that are not very good. Sorry Suns, Coyotes, and D-Backs.
- It can be very, very, very hot. Much too hot for a young red-headed lad, even if I smother my body in SPF 50.
Now these are great things to know, but I don’t know how useful this information is in the grand scheme of things. There is, however, a Phoenix-based learning experience that now exists that might be a touch more useful: computer coding.
That’s right, DevMountain has announced a new campus in Phoenix. This joins existing locations in Dallas, Provo, and Salt Lake City, with classes set to begin on July 17.
Founder/CEO Cahlan Sharp explained the move via DevMountain’s website:
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.
You can read the full explanation of the move here, but long story short is DevMountain loves what Phoenix brings to the table — a mix of tech and entrepreneur enthusiasm, coupled with a need for a coding bootcamp. There is no truth to the rumor that DevMountain’s presence will be able to improve Phoenix’s sports teams, but I guess crazier things have happened.
