Front End Software Developer Bootcamp

Front end software developers build the pieces of applications and websites that users see and interact with. This involves creating components that look good and provide functionality when a user interacts with them. It also involves interacting with the Back End applications and displaying data in an aesthetically pleasing manner. 

This Front End Software Developer Bootcamp is designed to be accessible, flexible, and allow working professionals who are actively seeking a career change to do so. You do not need any prior coding experience. Students will complete an aptitude test prior to the first session.

Employment of software developers, quality assurance analysts, and testers is projected to grow 22 percent from 2020 to 2030, much faster than the average for all occupations. About 189,200 openings for software developers, quality assurance analysts, and testers are projected each year, on average, over the decade according to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In the 18-week bootcamp, learn the skills and technologies necessary to enter the industry as a front end software developer, including Introduction to JavaScript, Front End Technologies, and Web App Design with React.
