Learn coding concepts while creating your own virtual world
This is a course focused on web development (programming and coding), which includes the development of apps.
Why study web development?
Customers have grown accustomed to communicating with businesses digitally and expect to find any brand or business online. Nowadays web and mobile development are considered premium skills since most companies are investing in and expanding their online presence. Not only must this online presence instill trust, it must also offer the best user experience possible.
In an ever-changing digital landscape, this means having a reactive and proactive team of professionals that know about the latest trends. Although there are different types of developers (the most common ones being the front-end, back-end and full-stack developers), be aware that whatever path you choose to pursue, getting into this business involves learning, practicing and trial-and-error projects.
