Foundation One Third Of Your Apprenticeship

In your first four weeks, you will establish a solid foundation of frontend development by building a clone of Rdio, a streaming music service. This initial project will give you a solid base in HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript, and also expose you to standard developer tools—Git and Heroku.

Building Real Projects Two Thirds Of Your Apprenticeship

Next you will build upon this foundation by choosing 4 web apps from a menu of options. Each app is designed to reinforce skills and layer-in new concepts. You’ll learn frontend frameworks and libraries including jQuery, AngularJS, and JavaScript testing frameworks. For your last two weeks, you and your mentor will work on a capstone project of your choice. This project will tie together and showcase the skills that you have learned as part of the course.
