Applying for BrainStation's Web Development bootcamp or Data Science bootcamp is free and can be completed online. It only takes minutes to start your application, and you will be guided through the rest of the application process making it as easy as possible.
What is front-end web development vs full-stack web development?
Full-stack development is a highly versatile and sought-after skill set because it involves implementing both the visual and design elements of a web application and the back-end systems that support it. As you may have guessed, this mix of skills also has its own title or role as a Full-Stack Developer.
Software engineering is a broader and very closely related field to web development. Rather than developing web applications exclusively, Software Engineers and Developers create many different types of software including web apps, mobile apps, and native desktop applications. Software engineering can also include solving a broader scope of technical problems related to a digital solution, rather than exclusively writing code for websites and web applications within web development.
Tech companies in Vancouver, British Columbia, and around the world need a mix of Software Engineer and Web Developer talent with front-end, back-end, and full-stack development skills to effectively work on digital projects.
Do employers like coding bootcamps?
Yes. According to a study completed by Indeed.com, 84% of employers surveyed think bootcamp graduates are just as prepared, or more prepared, to be high performers than candidates with computer science degrees. They also revealed that 80% of their respondents have hired graduates from coding bootcamps. This is great news for those looking to start a job in tech because Vancouver coding bootcamps can be the fastest way to learn these skills and get hired into the growing Vancouver tech world.
