Where our graduates are working

Curriculum Overview

Over the course of 12 weeks you will learn how to build, test and deploy software applications using JavaScript on the client- and server-side of an application (front-end + back-end).

1

Programming Fundamentals

In the first few weeks you will learn the basics of web design, user experience, and front-end web development using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. You will also learn how to work with terminal commands, GitHub, text editors, and take a deep dive into programming with JavaScript. The following weeks will focus on DOM manipulation, layout, structure and solidify what you learn through weekly projects.

2

Software Development

The middle of the course will teach you the software development concepts and practices used in the industry; you will become familiar and comfortable with building full-stack web applications. This unit focuses on more powerful front-end software such as React.js and Leaflet. You will also learn back-end software development using API’s, Express to build servers and MongoDB for database integration. In the last week, you will have finished your portfolio site, a place to showcase all of the projects that you have completed thus far.

3

Client Projects

This is where you will build, think, and work in a real development environment. The final project will be developed with a team of your peers and will provide an in-depth understanding of DevOps, how to work in an Agile project cycle, and refine the skills that you learned in class as well as a chance to explore the technologies that you are interested in pursuing post-graduation.
