The Full Stack Web Development course teaches multiple programming languages in multiple learning formats. This 12-week course will immerse students in extensive hands-on training leading to entry level employment as a full stack web developer of modern interactive websites. The course is divided into three main segments. The first segment covers the foundations of web technologies, the second emphasizes front-end web development and the third segment focuses on back-end web development. Third-party services, APIs and support tools professionals use in their role as web developers will also be introduced.
The course is designed to simulate real world industry expectations. Throughout the course the instructor plays the role of end user, customer, and project manager and provides feedback on students’ work from each of these perspectives. At the end of each segment, students will present a project to the class. Students will work with their classmates throughout the course to test and troubleshoot their projects. This collaborative approach exposes students to the kind of professional environment they are likely to encounter as web developers in the workplace.
SUNY Erie, in partnership with ed2go, offers online open enrollment programs designed to provide the skills necessary to acquire professional level positions for many in-demand occupations. These courses can also be used for preparation to enter the college’s academic degree and certificate programs and will familiarize the trainee and encourage them to enter the college for job enhancement purposes.
