2015: The Year to Become a Web Developer

by: Samantha Bragg, Events Intern

With the New Year quickly approaching, it may be time to consider a career change, to finally fulfill your desire to build your own website, or to sharpen your tech skills.

Betamore invites you to enroll in one of our Academy Courses during the Winter of 2015! No matter where you stand in your career, our web development courses can help you advance in achieving your professional resolutions, by helping you build a solid foundation in web development.

Your Options

Want to design a website? Our Front-End Web Development course is perfect if you want to learn how to build a professionally polished website from start to finish. During this course, students will learn everything they need to know about web design. Topics will include HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and responsive web design for mobile devices and tablets.

When: The first session is Tues, Jan. 20, the 10-week course will meet at Betamore every Tuesday and Thursday from 6-9 pm.
Fee: The course fee is $3,000; however, students who pay up front will be given a 10% discount.

For those looking to get a glimpse behind the curtain our Back-End Web Development course covers the fundamentals of building a database-driven web application. By the end of this course, you’ll be creating your own apps using the same programming framework that Twitter, Github, LivingSocial and many others are using.

When: The first session is Wed, Jan. 21, the 12-week course will meet every Monday and Wednesday from 6-9 pm.
Fee: The course fee is $3,400, but a 10% discount will be applied if fee is paid up front.

Our Expert Instructors

We are excited about the return of Ben Plum as Front-End Web Development instructor! His extensive experience as senior developer at Fastspot for over 5 years has made him an expert in front-end web technologies. His background in graphic design provides a strong appreciation for the details that make or break any user experience. He has had the privilege of working with various local and national clients such as The Walters Art Museum, Goucher College, The International Spy Museum and Bucknell University.

Paul Barry, CTO of OrderUp makes his return as a Back-End Web Development instructor. Paul has been doing web application for over 15 years and has a wide range of experience including building e-commerce, content management, learning management, optimization and personalization systems.
