12-Week Overview


In the first few weeks you will learn the basics of web design, user experience, and front-end web development using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. You will also learn how to work with terminal commands, GitHub, text editors, and take a deep dive into programming with JavaScript. The following weeks will focus on DOM manipulation, layout, structure and solidify what you learn through weekly projects.


The middle of the course will teach you the software development concepts and practices used in the industry; you will become familiar and comfortable with building full-stack web applications. This unit focuses on more powerful front-end software such as React.js and Leaflet.
