The Full-Stack Developer program is a comprehensive 24 week, full-time immersive diploma program designed for beginners.

This program enables students to develop the necessary skills to succeed as a junior web and/or mobile application developer.

The Full-Stack Developer program has been designed to help students acquire the necessary skills to first master the fundamentals of front-end web development by coding interactive, client-facing websites and basic single-page applications (SPAs) using a combination of HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and PHP.

In the second half of the program, you’ll dive deeper into the back-end of the web stack and learn the practical skills, techniques and best-practices used in modern, full-stack JavaScript application development by using in-demand libraries, frameworks, and platforms including React, Express, Meteor, and React Native.

You’ll also learn how to work with UX and UI designers, deploy different types of databases, write maintainable and testable code, use industry-standard practices for working collaboratively in teams, and deploy your applications to the cloud.
