The Front-End Web Developer Profession
A front-end developer uses a combination of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to build everything a user sees and interacts with on a website—that includes everything from front-end features like fonts, sliders, drop-down menus, and buttons, to the overall manner in which web content like photos, videos, and articles are displayed in your web browser. Front-end developer skills are often thought of in three levels depending on their experience. Developers start at the junior phase for the first few years, although the number of apps they’ve developed and the apps’ complexity are far more important when you determine the right developer for your project. After working alongside more experienced developers, they move to the intermediate phase where they can work on more projects independently. A senior developer can not only code a project, but they can also make decisions about how to design products.

The Front-End Web Developer Program
The Front-End Web Developer content introduces students to front-end, or client-side, web development technologies, including JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and jQuery. Participants learn how to make interactive applications that run inside a web browser and can communicate with a web server running remotely. Participants also learn how to use the version control program Git and collaboration website GitHub. Once complete, participants will have the basic skills necessary to work as a front-end web developer.

Program Objectives
Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to:

  • Create simple web pages using HTML and CSS and get those pages up on a website
  • Explain how JavaScript is used, format and execute code, define arrays, assign functions, and more
  • Use JQuery to manipulate DOM and perform Ajax requests
  • Verify that the individual functions that make up the application perform as expected using JsUnit
  • Make rich user interface elements using jQuery UI
  • Build an interactive application and add it to a GitHub repository to show prospective employers
  • Use Microsoft Office

Optional Volunteer Externship Opportunity

Students who complete this program are eligible to participate in an optional volunteer externship opportunity with a local company/agency/organization whose work aligns with this area of study in order to gain valuable hands-on experience.  As students progress through their eLearning program, an Externship Coordinator will reach out to coordinate placement.

Additional documentation including health records, immunizations, drug-screening, criminal background checks, etc. may be required by the externship facility.
