Overview

The Introduction to Web Development course is a great, free way to try out coding and see if it’s for you. But the course is more than that; it also serves as the foundation for a Software Guild education. By taking the Introduction to Web Development course, you’re learning skills that prepare you to become a Software Guild apprentice. That’s why we require all prospective apprentices in beginner-level bootcamps to complete the course.

Course Details

The workplace is becoming increasingly dependent on computer software, mobile apps and online storefronts. To meet this ever-increasing demand, American businesses need skilled developers. Learning a programming language keeps your skills relevant in the modern workforce and can help you move into a better position or make you invaluable to your current employer.
