New to coding? The Intro to Front-End with JavaScript course is a great starting point. In 6 weeks, you’ll go from no coding experience to structuring web pages with HTML, styling them with CSS, and adding dynamic functionality using JavaScript. We will round out the 6 weeks with a look at AJAX and API requests to enable your website to dynamically display information from other web services like Twitter, Google Maps, and more.

What You’ll Learn

  • Web Development 101: What does all that code mean? Have the intricacies explained in a way that informs and empowers you.
  • HTML & CSS: Learn to create gorgeous, responsive web pages and captivate audiences using HTML5 and CSS3.
  • JavaScript: JavaScript is the universal programming language of the web, used by many and loved by all. It makes websites dynamic and interactive and is the key to unlocking the full potential of front-end web development.
  • jQuery: Make your projects stand out through the use of jQuery, one of the most popular JavaScript libraries.

I freaking loved my time at Lighthouse Labs! I did a computer systems diploma at Humber and worked in IT support before applying to a couple of different bootcamps. The instructors, the classmates, the companies that work with Lighthouse Labs -- they are all awesome! It's so MOTIVATING to look at people's laptops and see them working on their apps or startup ideas. It's crazy how involved the school and instructors are in your life while you are at LHL. I made great friends in my fellow coders and the ways we support each other after graduation has been invaluable. Now add in the mentors who check in with you and ask you questions and challenge you about your projects. They were intimidating at first, but you'll soon realize they are 100% on your side. They also know what jobs are out there. They did more than anyone to help me "get" where I wanted to go.

Only con is that this won't be easy. I usually started at 9am and worked until 11pm on weekdays. I would sometimes log on on the weekends and hack away.

In the end, I got a great junior web dev job at a startup in Toronto that does affiliate marketing. All of the students in my class that I would call "motivated" landed jobs within about 3-4 months.

The difference between Lighthouse and college couldn't be bigger for me. I'm so glad I made this important life decision. I strongly recommend applying if you are in the same boat I was. Good luck to you!

FAQ

  • Which should I take: the Intro course or the Bootcamp?

    Ask yourself: "Do I want to work as a professional developer?" If the answer is 'yes', then there is no question that the full-time development bootcamp is the program you need. The goal of our bootcamp is to transform you into a professional full-stack developer. You’ll come to understand coding logic, and learn how to think like a dev by building software from the ground up using industry-relevant technologies. Our program will provide you with mentorship, data-driven curriculum and a top-notch learning environment that will launch you into your first junior developer role. If the answer is 'not sure', taking our part-time course might be the best option.

  • Who should take part-time courses?

    Our Intro to Web Development and Front End Fundamentals with JavaScript courses are excellent for people interested in learning how to code; people interested in learning how to communicate with a development team; people looking to gain career skills to help in a hybrid role; and people interested in learning if they enjoy development before taking our Bootcamp.

  • What are my payment options?

    Once you are accepted into a cohort, your place in the program will only be reserved once we have received your non-refundable deposit. Deposits can be paid by credit card, and we are able to accept cheques, wire transfers, bank drafts, or cash for the remainder of your tuition. Your tuition is due 2 weeks before your start date.

  • Can I come to Lighthouse Labs as an International student?

    Yes, you can come to Lighthouse Labs as an international student! There is no additional tuition cost or restrictions for people applying from outside of Canada. We have had many students come to Canada for our Bootcamp on a visitors visa, however you are entirely responsible for making any legal arrangements for staying in the country. Lighthouse Labs is not able to assist in securing working permits, and your eligibility to work in Canada will entirely depend on you securing the proper documents. If you are able to obtain a working permit, you'll be able to take full advantage of our Career Services opportunities!

  • How does Career Services at Lighthouse Labs work?

    At Lighthouse Labs our guiding belief is that over 80% of training will be learned on the job, and the first year of working as a software developer can be seen as paid high-intensity training. Our dedicated Career Services team is here to guide our students into their new roles. They work with all students to identify their career goals, and help them jump from classroom into the real world ASAP to continue honing their skills.
