Web Development Program

offered by Suncoast Developers Guild



Students will learn client-side (front-end) technology: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript as well as server-side (back-end) technology such as .NET or Ruby on Rails. At the end of the course, students will be able to create beautiful, fully functional websites backed by databases and server-side applications.

The first unit of the program will cover fundamental skills for software developers. Students will get to know their development environment and tools while diving into the core web technologies: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Front-end Frameworks
Going into the second unit, students will get hands-on experience with the latest best practices for modern JavaScript development. Students will learn about building complex interactive applications with React, a popular JavaScript library for building user interfaces.

Back-end Frameworks
In the final unit, students will round out their full-stack toolkit with an exploration of the server- side technologies that power applications on the web and mobile devices. Students will be able to choose a focus, such as Ruby on Rails (and the Ruby programming language) or .NET (and the C# programming language).

Students also receive career services guidance including mentoring and coaching on interview techniques, decoding technical job descriptions, resume writing workshops, and portfolio building. The program also includes guest lectures from community leaders on topics that add to and enhance the core program content.

Post-graduation, alumni have access to the student/alumni slack channel, on-campus free crash courses, on-campus Meetups, local tech events, and a reverse job board for our hiring network
