Being a front-end developer is a bit like being an architect for websites and apps. Your role is to build and maintain what people see and interact with on a website. This includes anything from the layout to the way a button behaves when a user clicks on it. As a front-end developer, you make ideas and designs come to life.

The programme kicks off with ALX Foundations, a 2-month module that prepares you to thrive in the digital workforce. You will learn critical communication, leadership, and career-building skills that will help you develop into a well-rounded professional.

Then, you’ll learn the basics of writing code in HTML, CSS, and Javascript, while also focusing your attention on how to design user-friendly websites and store your code with GitHub. The hands-on projects throughout the programme culminate in a capstone project where you will publish your own website to GitHub.

No matter your skill level, this programme is designed to take you from novice to a job-ready developer in 6 months.
