  • HTML and CSS are enough to be able to construct simple web pages, but to have more complex functionality -- for example, storing user data -- it’s necessary to create a full application.
  • In this training programme, students get practice designing and building their own custom front-end applications and plugging those applications into 3rd-party APIs on the web.



  • This course requires a basic knowledge of HTML and CSS in order to enroll.



  • Aspiring developers looking to get their first real experience with web development.
  • Technical product managers looking to create fully-functional MVP applications and further develop their tech vocabularies.
  • Designers and marketers who want to be able to add greater levels of interactivity to their mockups and landing pages.



  • How to work with JavaScript, jQuery, the browser and the DOM.
  • The fundamentals of JavaScript, such that you can more easily learn how to work with JavaScript frameworks and libraries.
  • The fundamentals of object-oriented programming, such that you can more easily learn another object-oriented language.
  • How to consume data from APIs and persist data using a back-end-as-a-service provider like Firebase.
  • How to build a modern, single-page application using common design patterns.
