Concordia X DecodeBootcamp

A rigorous, part time, nights & weekends program built to get you a job as a Web Developer in 24 weeks.

Next bootcamp starts: Mar 19th 2019

Concordia University

Built in partnership with Concordia Continuing Education, the Concordia x Decode Bootcamp is an effective way to launch a career as a Front-End Web Developer without quitting your day job. Courses are held at Concordia University and you will receive a Concordia University Diploma in Front-End Web Development upon graduating.

Curriculum

The Front-End Web Development Program is comprised of 6 modules. Each module will conclude with a project to demonstrate your mastery of the concepts.

Module 1: Learning Mindset, HTML & CSS

Is it possible to improve your intelligence? Are some people just naturally good developers? In module 1, we will explore the mindset you need to succeed in this program. We will also explore HTML & CSS, where you will develop a fully responsive website using modern techniques and styling. Your final project for this module will be to build a pixel perfect web page from a set of provided design files.

Module 2: Debugging, Testing & JavaScript Fundamentals

In module 2, you will explore fundamental programming concepts in JavaScript like types, variables, autonomous functions, and conditional operators. More importantly, you will learn some fundamental programming concepts such as the expansion principle and object diagrams. Through this part of the program you will learn to distrust your intuition and start to structure your thinking around the rules of programming. Lastly, we will go over how to properly debug and test your code, two skills which we will continuously use throughout the program. We will conclude the module with the creation of an interactive browser based application.

Module 3: Interactive Web Pages & jQuery

Due to jQuery’s popularity and ease of use, learning jQuery is a must for all front-end web developers. You will learn how to use the jQuery library to have your webpage update dynamically based off of user interactions. Topics include selection and DOM manipulation. We will conclude this module by creating a two player jQuery based game from scratch.

Module 4: Object Oriented Programming

This module will teach you how to utilize the various object-oriented programming features within JavaScript. Object-oriented programming allows developers to build applications with reusable and maintainable blocks of code, which leads to industry standard software design. This module will conclude with the creation of a browser based game built using object oriented principles.

Module 5: React

In this module, you will learn React. Built by the engineers at Facebook, React is a powerful JavaScript library ideal for building interactive, data-driven user interfaces, and it’s used by some of the most successful brands in the world, including Netflix, Airbnb, and more. This module will conclude with the creation of a interactive marketplace such as Kijiji or Craigslist.

Module 6: Authentication and firebase

In this module you will learn to integrate firebase within your app. This will give you the power to add Facebook and Google authentication to your web application (meaning people can create accounts and log-in). More importantly, you will be able to store information permanently. This module will conclude with the creation of a persistent marketplace, such as Kijiji. It is similar to the previous module, except now the information will be permanently stored.
