Eddy was attending college studying computer forensics and cyber security and working in quality assurance for a medical devices company when he became interested in coding—Java in particular. While he has a deep love for learning, he wasn’t up for spending more time in college to pursue another degree. That love of learning, however, led Eddy after graduation to Dev10 which offers plenty of opportunity to learn. Like many Dev10 Associates, he found the rigorous application process challenging. “If it’s this tough,” he thought, “it must be worth it.”
Learning so much more about Java than he had in college, Eddy loved the Dev10 training. Approaching his capstone—the cohort is asked to choose a technology they hadn’t used previously—he selected Angular, which is very challenging. Today, Eddy is working for a pharmacy benefit management company that holds “Innovation Week” events where employees are encouraged to try new technologies and share with their teams how the tech will benefit the company. “Feeling like I am not a number and having a say is the best part of the whole experience,” he says of his new role.
Mackenzie came to Dev10 with a Bachelor’s degree in Design Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She was a senior in college, graduated during the pandemic as a graphics designer but realized late in her college career that her passion was coding.
Graduating from the Dev10 program was a game changer for Mackenzie - New career and new friends! Mackenzie landed a new job before completing the training for one of the top employers in Milwaukee. Learn more about her journey. As Mackenzie reflects about her experience, she said , “We all have different backgrounds, but we were all working toward the same goal.” Not only am I a developer pursuing a new career path, I also have a community of fellow Dev10’ers to collaborate and further grow with. Mackenzie laughed and said, I am not sure who is more excited,” me or my dad? She shared her dad was “excited to finally have someone to talk coding with”.
Juhi had left her job as a claims adjuster and attended a coding bootcamp when she found info about Dev10 during her job search. Like many Dev10 consultants, she thought the program was too good to be true. While her family leaned toward medicine as a career, Juhi is interested in how society interacts with technology. She applied and was accepted. “It’s crazy how much we learned in 12 weeks,” she said. “We learned—and applied—a new concept every day.”
While her family is sad that she moved from Houston, Juhi now works as a developer for a financial services firm in Dallas. Bonding with others in her cohort, she stays in touch with them every day! In her new role, she is using the skills she acquired, especially back-end Java development. “I don’t ever want to be in a place where I can’t say that I am excited about going to work every day,” she said, adding that she’s recommended Dev10 to her friends in Houston
Nealie is a 2015 graduate of the University of Texas—at Dallas with a bachelor’s degree in arts and technology. While in college, she loved working with 3D animation and took programming courses. In her senior year, however, she wasn’t sure that she wanted to work in her major. Instead she took another path and began working as client account coordinator at a financial firm. Eventually she found her way back to tech and applied to the Dev10 program.
Nealie’s Dev10 placement is with a financial firm in Dallas, as a software developer on an authentication team—combining two of her interests! Would she recommend Dev10 to a friend? She already has! Naturally a quiet person, Nealie loved the cohort—the team working together to make sure everyone understood the concepts before moving ahead. A good thing because a couple weeks in, she realized they had already gone through three semesters of programming!
With a BS in genetics, cell biology & development, some med school and coding experience from the University of Minnesota, Moe was looking for a career change. He had made a tough decision: Medicine just wasn’t for him. A relative who had worked as a Business Analyst for Genesis10 put him in touch with a Dev10 recruiter, and the rest, well, Moe successfully completed the training and landed a great job in financial services. Like medicine, he says coding infiltrates just about every aspect of people’s lives. He wanted to be a part of that, just not as a physician.
Moe’s Dev10 trainer provided more inspiration—“he was a chef before he decided mid-career that he wanted to code—and we could tell he was happy by the way he approached class every day.” Moe’s advice to others thinking of making a change: Just do it. But, it takes hard work. Learning coding is like learning a language. It takes practice. Moe appreciates the extra effort the Dev10 team put into helping him with his transition. When the role he was interviewing for required knowledge he didn’t have, of Salesforce, the program filled in the gaps with additional materials and a timeline for learning it!
Ngochinyan graduated in 2015 from Augsburg University with a BS in Biology and was headed to med school. Along the way, he worked as a medical scribe with a physician and learned that a doctor’s lifestyle wasn’t for him. Freshman year, he had debated whether to major in Bio or Comp Sci! As long as he was happy, his parents supported his decision to join Dev10. In 2019, he picked Dev10 because in addition to paying a salary while learning to code, the program also provided job placement assistance and mentoring once on the job. He was hooked!
As a Salesforce Consultant with a Financial Services firm in the Twin Cities area, Ngochinyan loves a challenge! Of the Dev10 training, he loved the camaraderie of all the Dev10 Associates together facing the biggest challenge—learning to code in three months! While Dev10 taught him java programming, which he isn’t currently using, the rigors of the training prepared him for any challenge enabling him to succeed in his current role. Now he’s studying to become certified in Salesforce. “I’d highly recommend Dev10 to recent STEM grads interested in learning to code and making a career change!” he says.
A recent grad with a degree in biomedical engineering who loves to code, Peter wished he had taken more programming in school. His job search was frustrating—until he found the ad for Dev10 which was looking for people exactly like him. While family and friends were surprised at the turn in his career path, Peter was truly grateful every day of the training to be part of the program. Watch Peter's testimonial
Today, Peter works as a Developer for a financial services firm, providing support for web applications.

With a background in health informatics, Natalie was offered a job managing a restaurant when she realized that it was not what she really wanted to do. Hearing about Dev10 from a Facebook post, she talked to Genesis10 recruiters who suggested she go through the Web Development course to learn more about what the training would be like. Although curious about the change in her career path, her family was very supportive throughout the process. Watch Natalie's testimonial

Be open-minded about your placement. Trust in the process.
Feeling burned out from a teaching job, Rebecca was enrolled in a development course at a local college. As she applied for developer roles, she ran into roadblocks because she didn’t have work experience. Then she learned about Dev10 on a career site. Sounding too good to be true, a recruiter contacted her the day after she applied. Rebecca appreciates that the selection process is so deliberate—determining that both she and Dev10 are the right fit.
Now in a corporate training program with a financial services firm in Dallas, Rebecca says Dev10 changed her life! She’s happy to go to work every day. On a recent Saturday, she and two Dev10 colleagues (they stay in close touch) taught girls about machine learning and AI, designing a face-lock app as part of a Black Girls Code event. So taken with Rebecca’s enthusiasm, an eight-year old said that she too wants to be a programmer when she grows up!
Devlin loves to code! He studied coding in college, but was frustrated by the slow pace. Still, that love won out and he worked in software support for a small digital print company. Excited about his Dev10 acceptance, he told his family he’d soon be busy doing coursework that would take him to the next level professionally. Bootcamp was a blast! He coded for 8-12 hours a day! The instructor went above and beyond--teaching real-world applications he’d use every day.
Working in a Front End Developer role in an Agile environment for a financial services firm, Devlin is helping to build an app for internal advisors to use with clients. Excited about the career opportunities Dev10 has opened up for him, he wants someday to serve as a mentor helping people as he was helped. For those considering Dev10, Devlin says 110% to go for it, not only for the tools to succeed as a developer, but also for the work ethic the program encourages.
With a degree in chemistry, Emma had a job testing soil samples. She considered grad school, but didn’t like the career options. Working with a career counselor, she learned she has an aptitude for coding! Googling training programs, she found Dev10, which seemed magical—paid training and mentoring after job placement. The application process built up much needed stamina for bootcamp where she designed her own group running app as her capstone.
Emma is excited about her new role as a Junior Developer in the healthcare industry in the Twin Cities, and feels more positive about her career opportunities. She’s figuring out how all the pieces of the business fit together—the coding part of the job is easy! Emma has only good things to say about the Genesis10 team—she meets on the phone or in person once a week with her delivery director, Matt O’Hara, appreciative of the support he provides. He’s great, she says.
Nancy majored in mathematics and minored in computer science and had worked in several contractor roles including as an anti-money laundering analyst before learning about Dev10 from a LinkedIn post. While she found the application process challenging, especially the web development course part of it, she made it through successfully. During bootcamp, Nancy appreciated the real-world experience she gained through the classroom instructor who has real-world experience himself.
Nancy is putting that real-world experience to work as a Java Developer, running code every day for a financial services firm. Excited to build on the skills she acquired in college and the education she received through Dev10, she finds the continuous learning both challenging and fulfilling. Her new role keeps her on her toes—it’s what she loves most about it—and feels happier now than before beginning Dev10. Her advice: Enjoy the bootcamp! Enjoy learning!
Kyle came to Dev10 with an Information Technology Management degree and a wish that he had taken more coding in college. After his brother attended bootcamp, he wanted to go too. Dev10 was an opportunity “to get a good solid foundation in the software industry.” Once the training began, Kyle saw that he hadn’t done as much coding as some of the other consultants, but “the instructor was always willing to sit down with me and answer my questions.”
Kyle’s colleagues see him as a source for his coding expertise. Working as an IT Business Analyst at a building materials manufacturer, he loves his job. That good solid foundation he was seeking? He found it with Dev10 which helps him through any challenges. Equally important, he says, is his colleagues’ support. “We’re always learning new things!” His tip for Dev10 consultants beginning their training: Don’t be afraid to ask stupid questions.
Emma planned on grad school and teaching. A gig as a sub reawakened a love for problem solving and coding. So she participated in a bootcamp and began to look for a job that would support her as she continued learning. But few companies hire entry-level software developers. With Dev10—a really smart program in her eyes—Emma will get two years of experience, opening up fantastic opportunities. Watch Emma's testimonial
Now Emma is a Front End Software Engineer at a financial services firm, working on an app that financial advisors will use with their clients. She loves that her new role teaches her something new every day. She’s exactly where she’s supposed to be, doing exactly what she’s supposed to be doing!
