Dev Bootcamp

Ahhh! Right now I am super nervous about my Skype interview with Dev Bootcamp coming up in a few days. It’s a bit intimidating considering their low acceptance rate for applicants.

Dev Bootcamp is an intense 9 week training workshop located in San Francisco and Chicago. They take both beginner and experienced programmers, turning them into readily employable Rails beasts.

I first found out about DBC from reading a few discussions about the program on Hacker News and I was impressed with what they had to offer in their curriculum. They cover mainly Ruby, Rails, JavaScript, and Agile methodologies. It’s very similar to what I’m learning in Full Sail’s web program so I’m sure I’ll be prepared once I start my training at DBC.

To handle my nerves, I’ve been pushing myself much harder to learn how to become a Rails developer. My classes at Full Sail University have been a huge help so far and the tips that I’ve gotten from meetups with Team Treehouse and Code School have been inspiring for me.

I know this career field is a good fit for me, but I still have my doubts about whether I’ll be able to get into Dev Bootcamp. I’m not the best student at school and I barely have enough experience with code to impress anyone familiar with dev subject matter. Right now, I’m just relying on my passion to learn.

All I know for sure is that my path to becoming a Rails developer is going to be long and challenging, but I’ll enjoy writing every step of the way.

Wish me luck!
