At the end of this series of web coding and related courses, successful participants will receive a BCIT Computing Statement of Completion in Web Development Fundamentals which is a sub-set of our Applied Web Development, (AWD) Associate Certificate.
Graduates will be able to write code using multiple web scripting languages to create, deploy and to manage web pages, websites and web applications. Students will have practiced responsive web design, and source control using GIT. They have a choice of electives in either Node.js or React.js, and ideally most students will complete both.
Start with just one course, COMP 1850 – Introduction to Web Development, and pay as you go.
