The Front-end development track is a hands-on learning experience, designed to introduce the skills and concepts required to build modern web applications. Throughout the program, students will build simple web applications and projects with a variety of industry tools, building their curiosity and desire for a career as a Front-end Developer.
The Data analytics track is also a hands-on learning experience, designed to prepare individuals for a career as in data. Students will work with industry-standard tools, such as SQL, Python, and Tableau, to develop a practical understanding of the analytics process, from the development of statistical and machine learning models, to presenting and communicating their findings.
Participants can learn from the comfort of their home as the course is hosted online. However, signing up with a particular physical location is important to enjoy the full benefits of the program like the weekly yoga classes and the monthly soirées.
The Gitgirl Student Success Team will work with students throughout their student journey, from setting initial goals, to providing access to continuous learning and job search support post-program to help them launch their new career.
