Learn to think like a Developer
Programming is always evolving. That's why we focus on teaching students how to learn and to think like a software engineer. Great programmers can adapt and adjust to new technologies that arise and grow with the technology field.
It’s our goal to support you in building the foundation to finding a new career as an entry-level developer. Be prepared for mock interviews, workshops, guest speakers, events, and to cap it off with Launch Day (graduation) to showcase what you accomplished to employers.
Learn the skills in web development to earn a University of Utah Professional Education endorsed certificate powered by DevPoint Labs.
The DevPoint Labs Experience
More than just code. Whether you’re a local or coming from out-of-state we blend students into a vibrant developer community building life long friendships.
DPL Nights | Hackathons
Unwind from learning during DPL led activities like The Bowling Classic, Tuesday Movie Nights, or some casual drinks. Start brainstorming some web app ideas and see how much you and your peers can accomplish in our 2 hackathons each cohort.
Our central location in the Downtown Campus means that you can use public transportation like Trax or grab one of our passes from the city bikeshare program. Or join us during some nightlife activities.
Daily Learning Schedule
Not everyday will be the same, but you can expect a mixture of lectures, presentations, follow alongs, hands-on exercises, pair programming, and group projects.
