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.

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.

User Experience (UX) Design (Web & App Design) Certificate Program

1/30/2018 - 7/26/2018    6:00 PM - 9:00 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 585-484-7095 for assistance to get started on your program assessment.
