You'll learn back-end concepts like databases, server-side scripting and deployment so that you are able to use a database to power a dynamic application.  By the end of the course you will be proficient in the front end languages and frameworks that you need to create responsive websites. You’ll be trained in best practice for version control and workplace collaboration, allowing you to work effectively as part of a team on large code projects.   

As a young tech professional, your most important skills that will accelerate your career will be your ability to continuously learn, to communicate and collaborate in a professional environment, to solve problems innovatively, and the ability to navigate complex situations effectively.
