What is a Full Stack Developer?
As the line between what can be done on the front end versus back end blurs as the tech industry expands, more developers are becoming what is called “full stack.” Employers, especially in the Bay Area, are looking for developers who know how to work on all the parts of a site.
The program will train students in the following categories of Full Stack Development:
- Front-end development (the visible parts of a website or app)
- Back-end development (the “under the hood” databases and infrastructure)
- Full stack development (the combination of front-end and back-end to deliver a functioning app).
Get the Skills to Become Employed
This Full Stack Development Program will be an access pathway for job seekers to gain careers in theTech Industry. Qwasar and Cañada college have established partnerships with employers in the industry who are committed to this program, having seen the success of these training programs for themselves.
