AlbanyCanCode was established in the summer of 2016 to serve two key stakeholder groups: local employers of software and IT professionals, and local folks who have the aptitude to work in software but lack local options for training. Our initial 12-week course in Front End Web Development attracted more than 80 applicants.
A. The Front End developer is the critical link between, on one hand, how an online experience looks and feels, and on the other hand, how all the data that users are entering or searching for is managed. Front End Developers build the bridges that connect a user to data; and make the difference between a series of ideas and sketches about an app, and the ability to get that app built.
A. What do Front End students do in this class?
B. Establish solid foundations in key tools of front end developers: HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, jQuery, client side JS frameworks, collaborative workplace tools including git. Learn how to talk to clients and back end developers so that everyone can get on the same page. Build the pieces of code that connect the user experience into the data-crunching processes of the back end.
