WEB DEVELOPER Teaching student

In this class, the student will learn the fundamentals of Web development. This course will introduce the student to multiple different aspects of web development including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Bootstrap, Web servers, MySQL, PHP, Content Management Systems (WordPress) and SEO.

  • Strong fundamental knowledge of Hypertext Markup Language (HTML)
  • Good knowledge of Cascading Stylesheet (CSS3)
  • Foundational knowledge of JavaScript and front-end JS toolkit
  • Good understanding of WordPress as a content management system
  • Foundational knowledge of servers, databases, setting up websites and DNS

Motivation, curiosity, and enthusiasm for computer programming is required. The course will take the student from the very basics to intermediate/advanced concepts of HTML and CSS. We will then progress to learning how to code responsive web pages that resize themselves automatically based on the size of the user’s screen. Consequently, we will get a detailed introduction to the powerful language of web interactivity — JavaScript.

Using JavaScript, you will be able to add interactivity to web pages that you designed and developed using HTML and CSS. Finally, we will get into Content Management systems, WordPress in particular, and how WordPress can be used to build a complete content driven website.

In addition, we recognize that while the technical skills might get you an interview, having soft skills is essential to getting the job. Therefore, our approach is focused on a learning environment that incorporates good communications skills, adaptability, teamwork, conflict resolution and critical observation — all desirable traits, which make our students exceptional.

Class attendance is mandatory. Every class will have hands-on activities. Tasks not completed during class time have to be completed before the following week.

 You will receive a certificate of completion.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This course is intended for those individuals looking to be equipped with marketable skills to forge ahead into the exciting world of coding. Students will be working on individual as well as team projects in an effort to build a portfolio to showcase to prospective employers and/or potential clients. We recognize that while the technical skills might get you an interview, having soft skills is essential to getting the job. Therefore, our approach is focused on a learning environment that incorporates good communications skills, adaptability, teamwork/collaboration, conflict resolution, critical observation all desirable traits that will make our students exceptional and standout above the rest.

WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE CODING?

Experience is not necessary.  Our courses are designed to teach you the information necessary to transform you into a well-versed Web Developer. However, it is pertinent to come to class motivated with a desire to learn.

HOW DOES YOUR APPLICATION PROCESS WORK?

Simply fill out the online application and a representative will contact you to schedule an interview.  During the interview, you will be asked some questions followed by a short programming aptitude test. The approximate time for both the interview and test should be about 1 hour.  Our intent is to determine whether you have the necessary motivation to learn an entirely new set of skills and can thrive in our fast-paced learning environment.

The tuition for this program is covered by federal grants. You will graduate from this program with no debt. There are residency requirements to be eligible for this scholarship. If you are a resident of Jackson, Clay, Platte, Ray or Cass counties in Missouri; Johnson, Wyandotte or Leavenworth counties in Kansas, you might be eligible. Apply today to learn more if you qualify for the program.

CAN YOU GIVE ME AN IDEA HOW THE CLASSROOM TIME WILL BE STRUCTURED?

Instructors have designed classroom instruction in a manner that comprises all three learning styles.  Students can expect each class to include lectures, computer sessions to learn and apply knowledge, and group discussions/participation. You will be asked to present your solutions to the class as well as provide feedback to your peers.

WILL YOU HELP ME FIND A JOB?

It is our goal to prepare our students for the workforce, and we will try to do everything we can to help them succeed.  Our programs are designed to not only give instruction but also incorporate opportunities for networking.  Throughout the duration of our programs, our students will meet with IT professionals and CIOs in the Kansas City metro area and gain insight into what employers are looking for in a prospective employee.  In addition, we will host a Demo Day for students to showcase their work to local businesses and business leaders scouting new talent.  The training skills you will acquire from our program along with the networking opportunities that we provide, should be the winning combination that lands you a job, however, your success is dependent on how much time and effort you put into the program.

WHO WILL BE TEACHING THE COURSE?

Universities and workforce centers have partnered with Yoodle, a Kansas City based branding and technology agency to design and deliver these classes. Yoodle has been in the business of providing web design and development solutions to Kansas City for over a decade. Instructors for this class are professional developers who hold IT degrees as well as a plethora of real-world development experience. They strive to provide students with more than just technical training. They help students integrate knowledge into practical applications through individual and team projects. You will have the opportunity to learn from the best and apply the skills to your own projects during the course and after.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS A CLASS?

Our program is designed to be fast-paced and intense. We want you to be successful and see you achieve your goal of learning code. Therefore, it is critical to maintain a good attendance record. If you must be absent, we will do what we can to help you catch up. However, it will require that you commit time outside of class to learn the material covered during your absence. Every absence will put you behind the class. So, it is highly encouraged that you do not miss any classes.
