The immersive JavaScript SmartStart program will expose you to all of the technologies and theories you need to become a junior developer. You’ll learn from instructors with real-world experiences who are passionate about helping new coders, just like you, master the foundations and excel at their passions. Throughout the coding program, you’ll also gain soft skills like teamwork and presenting your work that are designed specifically to help you find a job after completing the program. Though we make no guarantees, our Career Readiness team will help connect you to employers, internships, and apprenticeships, so you can gain even more hands-on experiences.
