Program summary

Program Overview

The LaunchPad by Vog Back End Developer course will be an intermediate look at the skills, languages, and methodologies companies are looking for. Vog takes industry feedback and adapts it into digestible courses to ensure industry compliance and familiar habits when transitioning into the workplace. LaunchPad’s Back End Program will be covering topics such as C#, JavaScript, nodejs express, RESTful API, Relational Databases, OAuth, CORS, SSL, best Git practice, and personal management of both time and organization to ensure your projects are met on time and on budget (see what you will learn).

Measuring Success

Throughout each module of learning, Launchpad will be defining unit testing to ensure your success is being achieved, and personalize our approach with you to identify any difficulties. During the final weeks of the 16-week program, you will apply the learned skills to a final project and define the specialty that fits in with your employer of choice.

Your Career

Back end development languages handle the ‘behind-the-scenes’ functionality of web applications. It’s code that connects the web to a database, manages user connections, and powers the web application itself by optimizing applications for speed and efficiency.
In your career as a back end developer, you will typically work on back end related projects including Entity Framework, NoSql Databases, Relational Databases, RESTful Api, Authentication/OAuth and more. Back end developers play a critical role in web development teams and have to work hand-in-hand with front end developers creating the most efficient solutions to make the web app function properly.

LaunchPad Back End Web Developer Program

Not Just a Typical Day at the Office

The LaunchPad Back End Professional Development Program will be separated into 1-week modules of learning covering two areas of study per day. The two final hours of the day will be dedicated to working on projects, studying, and mentoring from instructors/peers for assistance with any challenges or areas of difficulty.

Module 1

Training begins in the morning with two hours of lecture and lesson plans on Module 1 with one hour of assistance and application of the subject matter during the remainder of the morning.

Module 2

In the afternoon, we will start covering two hours of lecture lesson plans on Module 2 with an hour of assistance and application of the subject matter.

Practical Application
