What You'll Learn

We teach the skills you need to kickstart your career as a developer and a lifelong learner. From programming fundamentals to launching full-stack web apps, you'll learn to solve problems with code while applying industry best practices in a collaborative environment.

Programming Fundamentals

Understand how to set up your development environment, work efficiently as a developer, and make your projects a success. Learn programming fundamentals, along with the basics of computing, networks, and data structures.

The Basics of Product Development

Define what a user should be able to do with your app, appropriately model your data, develop simple wireframes, and learn to track a collaborative development process using version control.

Front-End Web Development

Before you start working with cutting-edge libraries and frameworks, gain an understanding of how to write high-quality JavaScript code. Learn to build a dynamic, front-end to your web application using a modern JavaScript library, and use CSS to layout and style your application.

Back-End Web Development

Build web applications from the ground up using Ruby on Rails, a modern web language, and MVC framework. Build quality APIs using Node.js and integrate data from other apps (like Twitter or Yelp) into your project.

Working with Teams

Learn to collaborate with others to produce high-quality software as you work with a team to develop, maintain, change, and secure an application.

Build Your Portfolio

You'll complete several projects, including a primary portfolio project that will help you begin your job search with confidence.
