This program is broken into two parts: Front End Development and Django (Python) Development.

Front End Development

In the first section of the program, students will learn HTML to mark up webpages and CSS for styling. You'll then learn the fundamentals of JavaScript as well as jQuery, the industry-standard framework that lets you quickly and easily write powerful JavaScript. You'll master Git for version control, and how to use flexbox and grid to layout, align, and reorder webpage content, as well as make it adapt to different size screens.

Students then progress to two powerful JavaScript libraries for web and app development, React and React Native. The class will start with basics such as learning how to compose components which are the foundations of React. During this course, students will build three fully working apps: a desktop application using React, and an iOS and Android app using React Native. 

Django (Python) Development

This part of the program starts with the basics of Python. You'll learn the lexical syntax of Python and quickly move onto more advanced topics such as dictionaries, custom functions, and sorting algorithms. You'll progress to Object-Oriented Programming, working with APIs, and querying databases with SQL. 

You'll then be introduced to Django, a Python web framework used for back end web programming. Students will learn URL dispatchers, querying models, and automating tasks with Django. After understanding the fundamentals of Django, the class will move to Django REST, a Django framework, which covers how to work with images, authentication, and using API endpoints. 

Projects & Job Support

Throughout the course, students work on their own projects with guidance from our instructional teams. There will be lectures covering interview prep, resume support, and developer tools. After completing this certificate, students will be able to apply for the following roles: Software Engineer, Front End Developer, Python Developer, Back End Developer, and many more.
