This 12-week course in Front-End Web Development is structured around tutorials, assignments, and individual and group projects to give students hands-on practice building the pieces of code that determine how an online experience feels, and connect the user experience into the data-crunching processes of the back end. Students will establish solid foundations in key tools of front end developers: HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, jQuery, JSON, client side JS framework Angular, and collaborative workplace tool git.
Labs led by local developers, workshops and networking are integrated into the curriculum so that students gain real-world exposure to local employers and a chance to get a feel for the industry overall. This course may be of particular interest to graphic designers, as it teaches the technical skills necessary for UI (user interface) development and wire-framing. The course may also be attractive to beginning programmers with aspirations to create mobile applications, as it establishes a solid conceptual foundation for eventual progression into Full-Stack Development.
This course meets two evenings per week, three hours per session. Occasional labs outside of class meetings will provide further opportunities for mentoring and networking opportunities.
