SALT LAKE CITY, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DevPoint Labs, the innovative leader in web programming coding bootcamp teaches students to code and become web developers in an intense full-time 11-week development bootcamp with campus locations in Salt Lake City, Utah and Las Vegas, Nevada. Future developers learn Ruby on Rails programming language and front end HTML, CSS, Javascript and back end to breed the next generation of full stack developers.

"Ruby on Rails developers can make over $100,000 and are the highest in demand among web developers," said Nhi Doan, DevPoint co-founder. "Ruby is an object-oriented programming language and Rails is a framework built in Ruby. Together they can be used to build popular websites."

DevPoint Labs is accepting applications for its spring development bootcamp semester, which begins April 7, 2014, in downtown Salt Lake City. Enrollment is limited and financing is available. Interested applicants may apply at DevPointLabs.com. DevPoint's learning approach incorporates pair programming with traditional lectures and a mix of group projects, lean methodologies, hackathons, industry guest speakers, and one-on-ones with instructors, TAs, and mentors in high-tech classrooms equipped with large iMacs.

"This month marks our second graduating class of development and coding bootcamp students. It has been overwhelming to see first hand the students' personal and career transformations during the 11-week program," said Ty Diamse, DevPoint Labs co-founder. "Several students have more than doubled their income with their new programing positions at high-tech companies. Additionally, many students are successful entrepreneurs learning coding to create their next big idea."

DevPoint teaches coding at a fraction of the cost compared to traditional institutions. Coding bootcamp tuition is $8,500 for the 11-week full-time course and financing is available. In an effort to promote diversity and introduce more women into the male-dominated programming career, DevPoint offers $2,000 tuition scholarships for women who complete its bootcamp and share their story with high school students.

DevPoint's professional coding bootcamp training is critical within an industry that expects 1.4 million job openings by 2020 which currently U.S. universities anticipate filling only 29%. Once students have completed the program, DevPoint introduces students to potential employers seeking web developers. DevPoint students are featured in a Launch Day at the end of each semester where they display and present their capstone project created out of class to potential employers.
