Which course should I choose?
Programmers are divided into front end and back end developers. They develop different parts of websites and web applications, but they also have a different set of skills and desirable traits.
How do I know which programming bootcamp is for me?
The front end is the part of the website or web application that you can see in the browser window. Front end programmers make sure that the website is readable and intuitive for users. If you have an aesthetic sense, attention to detail, you are creative and you like to create things that are pleasing to the eye - the front end is for you. The back end is the part of the application that runs "behind", for example, on the server. It is responsible for the logic of the system and for the front-end part to receive appropriate information to be displayed. If you prefer to get a specific zero-one task and work on it until you get it - you are the back end person. Desirable features are an analytical approach to problems, systematicity and the willingness to solve logical problems.
If you are in doubt which course is right for you, contact our advisor. Like no other, they will analyze your individual situation and advise you on the best solution for you.
