Why Start a Career in Web Development?

In 2017, Software Developers and Front-end Developers are listed as two of CNN Money’s “Best Jobs in America” because they make an averaged median salary of $88,800 and benefit from an average 20% job growth.* Developers are literally building our future, so they’re in high demand.

As technology continues to influence and infiltrate every industry, most expect that demand for skilled developers to continue to grow. To help train more skilled developers, CodeCraft is bringing a personalized learning format to the coding bootcamp world.

 

Web Development Course Overview

In our JavaScript-based full stack coding bootcamp, you’ll learn both the fundamental front-end languages that power all websites including HTML, CSS and JavaScript as well as coding back-end technologies with JavaScript that leverage servers, databases, and complex logic to craft complete, highly-functional web apps! In addition to technical training, you’ll also benefit from guest speakers, whiteboard working sessions, and mock interviews that mimic real-world hiring practices.

Check out the awesome apps that some of our recent graduates have coded after just 12 weeks of learning web development!

What You’ll Learn

The course is a full-time and immersive coding bootcamp. The course structure leans heavily on applying what you learn in the ‘real world’. It involves individual and group exercises, live networking and panel events, and a personally chosen final project. Below is a chronological breakdown of the course work.

Arrow up icon

Section 1: Level up your skills

In the first two weeks, you’ll ease into the class’s collaborative style while working remotely on our pre-work to get you comfortable with the fundamentals of the web. Learn HTML, CSS and the basics of JavaScript on your own, so that you’ll have good foundation for the first week of your in-person class.

Section 2: Advanced JavaScript + Node.js + Express.js

Our expanded focus on algorithms and fundamentals will deepen your knowledge of JavaScript as a language. We’ll practice tough interview questions and interesting computer science problems. Additionally, we’ll explore using JavaScript on the server to build robust web apps, combining the super-fast and super-flexible Node.js platform with extraordinarily capable, web-centric Express.js framework. Knowing how to leverage this powerful combination of technologies will take you to the next level of JavaScript developer.

Section 3: MongoDB + Single Page Apps

As we progress, we’ll explore common databases and how they’re used when building web applications. You’ll learn about MongoDB, Mongoose.js, localized storage in HTML5, along with best practices and merits of each of these tools culminating in a hackathon to apply your new skills! After this, you’ll take everything that you’ve learned so far and put the pieces together in a collaborative environment to build a fully-functional Single Page App (SPA).

Section 4: Vue.js

Learning a full-stack front-end framework is no easy feat, so we’ll take two weeks to introduce you to Vue.js! Vue.js is a great stepping stone to larger, more complex front-end frameworks like Angular.js and React. With Vue.js, you can create responsive, fully-functional single-page web apps very quickly.

Section 5: Final Projets + Demos

During the final two weeks of the program, you’ll be developing your own app using all the skills and technologies you’ve learned, including deploying the app to either AWS or Heroku. While our instructors and mentors will be available, you’ll be encouraged to troubleshoot and solve any challenges that arise in order to be fully prepared for your first job. Final projects are chosen by the students, so you’ll have a unique piece for your portfolio.
