The median salary for an entry-level full stack web developer in the CSRA is between $35,000 and $45,000.
It’s an attractive career—if you have the knowledge. For those interested in a new career in web development, the technology cooperative is offering a new boot camp-style class that will help get them there—in just three months.
Application deadline is February 24; classes start on March 20 and end on June 19, and are Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Code Bootcamp aims to arm students with beginner skills in web development and coding with further knowledge and a professional portfolio website, along with the potential to find a job as a junior full-stack web developer.
“Twenty years ago, knowing one programming language was generally all it took to enter the workforce as a programmer, but today’s web-centric environment requires a wide variety of specific, challenging skills to even begin to contribute. Our Code Bootcamp approaches web development as a discipline from the core fundamentals to utilizing modern technologies to create innovative applications,” said Nadeem Soharab, web developer and Bootcamp instructor.
Each month of the Bootcamp offers a different focus:  
Month 1: Students will learn the basics of web development and spend significant time each day doing simple, iterative programming and web development projects, including the basics of HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP and MySQL. The trimester will culminate in the development of a professional portfolio website accessible at a personalized domain name.
Month 2: Students will work on individual projects that will feed into their portfolios and showcase their unique talents and capabilities while learning the skills that go into designing, developing and launching full-featured web applications.
Month 3: Students will work together on a full-featured group application, focusing on how to work with a team, project management, design document creation and managing complex project schedules.
Finally, at the end of the Bootcamp, students will attend a job fair where they can share their work and engage with possible future employers.
