Curriculum

The curriculum is a collaborative effort with our industry partners

The curriculum teaches students to think like software engineers, independent of any specific language. That said, the bulk of the material uses JavaScript because it is the most popular language requested by recruiters.

Students develop a foundation in programming fundamentals, and conquer the concepts of object-oriented programming. Students will work with modern industry tools and practices. Students will learn to test and assist their peers, and contribute to open source projects.

Projects (challenges) use industry best practices to provide students with real-world experience.

By the end of the semester, all students build functional applications for their portfolio. Recruiters can review our candidate’s profiles and interview the best fit.

By the end of this course, students should be able to:

  • Design and layout responsive web applications
  • Build secure full – stack web applications according to common design patterns
  • Safely model and store data in SQL and NoSQL databases
  • Develop web applications using JavaScript
  • Consume and integrate third-party APIs in an application
  • Use modern JavaScript browser application frameworks
  • Deploy applications to the web using cloud based hosting
  • Clearly document and present the projects they’ve built
