What is a Front End Software Developer?

Front End Software Developers build the pieces of applications and websites that users see and interact with. This involves creating components that look good and provide functionality when a user interacts with them. It also involves interacting with the Back End applications and displaying data in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

‚ÄčIn the 18-week, Front End Software Development program, students take three courses to learn the skills and technologies necessary to enter the industry as a Front End Software Developer: Introduction to JavaScript, Front End Technologies, and Web App Design with React.

Skills and technologies learned include JavaScript, Algorithms, OOP, Design Patterns, Unit Testing, HTML, CSS, JQuery, Bootstrap, AJAX, React, JSX, REST, NPM, AWS, and more.

How long are the classes?

Students meet for class once a week at a set time in a virtual environment. In addition to the weekly class meeting, students meet once a week for a remote, 30-minute one-on-one with a mentor.

In the Front End Developer program, we cover technologies including, but not limited to: JavaScript (ES6), CSS, Sass, git, CLI navigation, HTML, Bootstrap, npm, JQuery, AJAX, React, Axios, Responsive Design, debugging, and more.
