Programming Languages

JavaScript

JavaScript is a front-end programming language that’s so popular, it is known as the ‘programming language of the web’. While HTML & CSS are used to create a web page, JavaScript is needed to make it interactive. Fill out a web form or click a link and that is JavaScript at work. Currently, JavaScript is used by the most popular web browsers in the world including Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Course Modules Where You’ll Learn JavaScript: Coding from Scratch, Front-End Foundations,
Cloud Deployment

Job titles: Front-End Developer, Software Developer, Software Engineer, Web Developer

Average Software Developer Salary: $101,790 (BLS.gov)

Java

Java is a back-end programming language that is one of the most widely-used programming languages in the world; it is estimated to run on over 3 billion devices! A few popular uses for Java include mobile app development, website development and creating, editing and updating
collections of data.

C#

C# is the most common language associated with the .NET framework. C# is a scripting programming language in which developers can create algorithms and business logic to manipulate the data that was received in front-end development. Fun fact, C# is often used in coding virtual reality (VR) games within a VR distribution and creation platform like Unity.

Ruby

Ruby is a great programming language to learn if you are a beginner. It is what they call a ‘high level language’ because it simplifies many complex algorithms and you can do more with less code. It is great for building prototypes with the popular Ruby on Rails framework and there are a ton of
projects that you can build upon and reference within GitHub — an open-source repository for the
coding community.

A full stack education for life

No matter what programming path you decide to take, there is no wrong decision. You can always come back and continue your education as we continue to add lessons and languages at no additional cost! The following are the three primary aspects to your full stack software developer education:

FRONT-END DEVELOPMENT

This is the actual presentation of your website — how it is laid out in browsers and on mobile devices. A dedicated front-end developer will be experienced in working with HTML and CSS as well as JavaScript. Additional skill sets of a front-end developer that are learned at Woz U are the React/React/JS, Angular/AngularJS, responsive web design and user experience design (UX). A powerful front-end developer can identify the look and feel of a site while assessing the technical capabilities of the design.

BACK-END DEVELOPMENT

Creating, editing, updating and recollecting data are some of the processes most associated with back-end development. Some of the common programming languages used in back-end development are Java, C#, Ruby and JavaScript. A well-trained back-end developer troubleshoots slow applications and can determine how scalable their websites are to include more users. They are able to take information from front-end development to solve complex problems on the backside of the terminal.

DATABASEA DESIGN

Learning database design allows you to create the structure and interactions that allow your web application to store and manipulate large sets of data. Woz U teaches both relational databases like MySQL as well as non-relational management systems like NoSQL with Mongo and Node.JS..

In addition to the above, the Woz U student is exceptionally well-rounded with exposure to other valuable skills such as Web security, Cloud Deployment, Responsive Design and Agile Project Management.
