Frontend Developer Courses

Frontend Developers work on project teams creating and maintaining complex websites. They are responsible for the user interface of a website and control the way users and web visitors interact with the system. Their focus is on the structure and stability of a website — and should not be confused with web designers (who focus on aesthetics and visual appeal).

As a Frontend Developer you’ll need to be fluent in a number of web programming languages — HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, Ruby, Python — and also be able to work to a project brief. Liaising with clients, web designers, and backend developers will also be part of your job.
