"I found the curriculum excellent. Even from before the course itself began, I found the course prep section really helpful. I really liked that there was a great balance between theory and practical applications and really have to congratulate on the structure of the course, building as it does from an intro to the tools and moving onward on each task to more complex themes. The platform I found really easy to use, intuitive and nicely designed."



Build an impressive portfolio

 

You’ll have the opportunity to add seven new projects to your portfolio—one for each course segment. In Intro to Frontend Development, you’ll build a portfolio site using HTML and CSS; in Full-Stack Immersion, you’ll build six different apps, each with different functionalities. Impress your future employers with a wide variety of high-quality deliverables, all hand-picked and polished under the careful eye of your Mentor.

"I think one of the most important parts of the CF program is the unified community of like-minded individuals all in the middle of bettering themselves and working on their own career change. It creates this social web of support where anyone can reach out at any time for help. I started out new and overwhelmed at first, but seeing how supportive everyone was then and now is definitely something that I really appreciate. I’ve made a lot of tangible connections and friends with current students and past alumni this way and see tremendous value in it."
