What Languages are Taught in Front End Bootcamps

As an aspiring front end web developer, you’ll need the coding languages and skillset to help you build websites that feature seamless styling and design as well as intuitive user experience.


Luckily, coding bootcamps such as Nucamp provide you with coding language coursework that sets you up for success in a front end web developer role following bootcamp completion.


But first, let’s take a closer look at what languages you’ll learn as a part of front end coding bootcamp.

What languages are taught in front end bootcamps?

Front End Coding Languages


Front end web development focuses heavily on the user’s experience on the front end, or public-facing portion of a website rather than the website’s back-end structural components. As a result, front end web development focuses heavily on code that relates to styling and format. This includes:


JavaScript: JavaScript is one of the most universal coding languages in use today, which was developed 25 years ago with the aim of standardizing the way websites and applications are built. JavaScript is used heavily in developing websites, mobile apps, and PC/Mac apps.


HTML and CSS: These languages are the building blocks of most web pages and applications. HTML, or Hypertext Markup Language, is the standard language used to build these products. CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, is the language used in addition to HTML to create the style and formatting of content on web pages or apps.


Bootstrap: This language is a collection of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, helping web developers leverage parts of these coding languages to build websites that are even more seamlessly styled and designed.


React and React Native: React enables web developers to leverage these skills even further, building systems that connect consumer data at a higher lever. React is the most popular JavaScript library. React Native, a related coding language, allows web developers to create mobile apps from these websites, which can be downloaded by users in some of the most widely-used app repositories in the world, such as Apple’s App Store or Google Play.

Front End Coding Coursework


In order to learn the coding language skills above, Nucamp offers two customized course tracks for aspiring web developers wanting to obtain these skills.


Web Development Fundamentals


This program serves as an entry-level introduction to web development, covering all of the coding basics and coding languages. This includes languages such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript that coding students learn over the course of online courses, readings, in-person workshops, and three projects. Although this course isn’t for web developers wanting to build websites from scratch, upon graduation from bootcamp, it will allow you to do the following:


  • Customize off-the-shelf websites.

  • Build email templates.

  • Work alongside web development teams in roles such as a technical project or accounts manager.


Front-End Web Development


Nucamp’s Front-End Web Development program takes coding language learning to a deeper level, examining HTML, CSS, and JavaScript with Bootstrap as well as the React and React Native languages. This course also includes Git and GitHub training - version control systems that allow developers to keep track of changes being made to a codebase by development teams. These systems are used universally in web development roles, and are essential to know as a front end web developer. Over 17 weeks, students learn these skills through a combination of online courses, readings, in-person workshops, and 12 projects.


Upon graduation from bootcamp, this will enable you to do the following:


  • Build responsive websites with seamless user experience and styling that work across devices and web browsers.

  • Build mobile apps.


Will I Get a Front End Development Job?


The return on investment of coding bootcamps such as Nucamp is powerful. As compared with a traditional computer science degree from a four-year university, coding bootcamps provide students with the coding skills they need to hit the ground running in a new web development career - in a fraction of the amount of time required for a university degree. It’s worth noting, also, that this is typically also at a fraction of the cost.


The employment rate following coding bootcamp graduation is also impressive. According to data from SwitchUp, 80.9 percent of alumni were employed, 71 percent of which were working full-time, upon finishing a bootcamp. This is also, in part, because many bootcamps provide students with networking opportunities while they’re still completing their coursework, ensuring that your networking and job search is not last minute. In fact, Nucamp provides all students with complimentary LinkedIn Premium access to help jumpstart their job search.
