How would you like to have a career in one of the fastest growing areas of the United States economy? You will be able to land your first job and have each year of experience boost your earnings dramatically year after year. Front-end developers are the front-end of a website that users interact with. A front-end developer is responsible for everything that you see when you’re visiting your favorite websites, navigating around the Internet, including fonts, contact forms, images, video, page formatting, colors, drop-down menus and sliders. The front-end developer uses HTML, CSS, UX design, and JavaScript to allow the user to experience the internet in seamless and dynamic ways.

The goal of a front-end developer is to create clear, easy, fast pages and interfaces that will enable people to understand and care about the information they see. The front-end developer implements the functionality of the website and has become indispensable in today’s digital economy. Front-end is not just a pretty face, it's the friendly, forward-looking interface of web development.

Front-end developers are responsible for a website’s code that is seen by people surfing the web. They are the architects of the user experiences. In order to execute those objectives, they must master three languages: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript programming. In addition to these languages, they need to know how to use libraries like jQuery and LESS, and frameworks like Bootstrap, Foundation, Backbone, AngularJS, and EmberJS, which ensure great-looking content across all devices. Many listings also call for experience with Ajax, which allows pages to dynamically load by downloading server data in the background.

After completing this program you will be able to work at a company or define your own hours, and areas of expertise as a freelancer. The program prepares students to develop sophisticated websites, apps, and designs extendable to many of the social networking sites. Students will also have presentation and interviewing skills training and have the option of completing a two-week internship at the completion of the course.

User Experience (UX) Design Certificate Program

7/18/2017 - 1/2/2018    5:30 PM - 9:30 PM

User Experience (UX) Design is the process of enhancing user satisfaction by improving the usability, accessibility, and pleasure provided in the interaction between user and a product. Although the emphasis is on the digital aspect of user experience (websites, apps), UX also applies to services and products.

Hiring managers need UX designers. Because of a wide range of companies with a digital presence, there is a heavy demand for UX designers who can design the way a website flows, the placement of buttons on a mobile interface, the clarity and readability of the accompanying language - all of these things and more affect a user's experience of a brand and its products. A UX designer's job is to make sure that experience is as pleasant as possible.

This is a relatively new and fast growing field. Any type of four-year degree is helpful (Graphic Arts, Psychology, Business, Communication). Experience in Web or App development, a two-year degree would also be helpful. You will need to be interviewed by one of our program managers to help you decide what program best suits your needs, and objectives. Please call Gerald Ringer at 1-212-695-9840 for assistance to get started on your program assessment.

The students will also learn about pattern libraries and how to build one.

Mobile Devices Students will explore the eccentricities of designing for small screens and touch devices. Objectives include understanding user context/environment, utilizing the hardware available in mobile devices for a better user experience (gps, camera, etc.), and the user experience differences between a click paradigm on a desktop/laptop versus the touch interaction (touch, gesture) on a mobile device.

Presentation/Communicating Design Students will learn how to present their design and prototype concepts to a group. This includes creating a presentation, speaking to a group, accepting criticism, iterating a design based on feedback, and defending design decisions.

Wireframing Students will discover how to utilize wireframing to visualize a concept and the tools used to wireframe (Balsamiq, drawing, Axure). Students will also learn the difference between a wireframe versus a prototype, and how to utilize wireframes in user testing and presentations.

Prototyping Objectives for this course include integrating visual design into a functional prototype, the differences in fidelity for prototypes (low, medium, high), and the tools used for prototyping (invision, axure, code) depending on fidelity required. Students will also understand how to use prototyping in user testing and iterate a prototype based on testing feedback.

Advanced Research/Testing & Iteration/Reporting This course builds upon the knowledge gained from the introduction to user experience course which touches on research. Students will learn the tools and objectives for usability testing, the usability testing process, the types of usability testing, recruiting test subjects, qualitative research, quantitative research, iteration and retesting, and how to report on the results of usability tests.

Team organization and structure This is a one meeting course that describes the makeup of a user experience team typically found in a corporation or agency. Students will discover the roles and responsibilities of each team member and the processes used to create great products.

Intro to Digital Marketing This course is an overview of digital marketing in the context of user experience. User experience includes the entire customer journey from initial customer contact to customer engagement with the product and customer exit, thus marketing initiates the conversation with users and maintains user loyalty. With this in mind, students will get an overview of digital marketing techniques and tools and how user experience professionals can use digital marketing to create a top-notch user experience for a digital product.

First Project Students will utilize the knowledge gained throughout the user experience curriculum to independently develop a project that incorporates the key elements of the user experience learnings. This project will be done throughout the duration of the curriculum, with several classes devoted to work sessions where students can interact with each other and the professor to better their project.

Team Project Students will utilize the knowledge gained throughout the user experience curriculum to work as a team to develop a project that incorporates the key elements of their user experience learnings.
