FAQ about the Web Development Course

Do I need any coding skills or experience?

Above all else, you will need to be extremely motivated and have a genuine interest in tech and coding. While we work continually to ensure you don’t lose a step, the bootcamp moves very quickly, so your dedication is essential. A previous introduction to coding, either through an introductory course in college or an online course, will be useful for you. But don’t get discouraged if you haven’t taken one — many of our students started without any previous knowledge and still became great developers. Nothing is more important than your mindset and your determination.

Why do you teach full-stack JavaScript?

JavaScript continues to be the most popular coding language because it can be executed in both the back-end (server-side) and the front-end (client-side/browsers). How amazing is it that you can become a full-stack developer by learning just one coding language? Moreover, JavaScript has one of the most expansive and engaged developer communities in the world. This means you can easily find the right mentors who will happily share their knowledge and experience. And, if this wasn’t already enough, Amazon, Netflix, Spotify, Airbnb and many other international companies build their apps with JavaScript, making it perhaps the most in-demand technical skill today.

If I already know how to code, is the web development bootcamp right for me?

Absolutely. As it turns out, many of our students already have computer science degrees or previous education. This is because the bootcamp teaches more than just coding. You’ll learn to utilize professional tools like GitHub, as well as the specific workflows that startups and software companies around the world are using. On top of that, you’ll learn software development best practices, SOLID principles, and technologies like MongoDB, ExpressJS, NodeJS and React.

What are the pre-requisites to access the Web Development bootcamp?

To access the full time or part time program of Web Development, you don't need any previous requirement: it is enough if you love learning, you are motivated and willing to work. We recommend this program to those candidates who are passionate about solving technical issues, have a strong logic and are really methodic and constant.

I don't know anything about Web Development but I love it, could I join the bootcamp?

Of course! You should always learn more about this area, you can join our webinars and make sure that coding is for you. It is not necessary to have any previous training, but you should demonstrate this is the path you want to follow.

What is the typical profile of a Web Developer?

There are as many profies as students! Some of the most common areas are: architecture, engineering, video game design... but it is not necessary to have a university degree or any specific education. Remember that at Ironhack we are specialized in teaching students with really diverse backgrounds.

What does the structure of the Web Development bootcamp look like?

The program has the same structure both in the full time or part time formats: the only difference is the duration of each module. The program is divided into three modules: in the first one, you will work on Front End (HTML, CSS), in the second part you will start working with Javascript, node.js and MongoDB for Back End and in the third module you will learn React and you will be able to do your project from scratch. You will finish the program with 3 projects, one per module, and in the final project you will combine front end and back end. You will work with pair programming methodology, but all your projects will be done individually.

How many hours per day should I dedicate to the Web Development bootcamp?

In the Full Time program you should go to class from Monday to Friday from 9am to 6pm, and then you will have a lot of extra work after class. It is a really intensive program that is not compatible with any other activity such as work or studying.

In the Part Time program, you will have class two weekdays during the evening and on Saturdays. It is compatible with your full time job or any other circumstances, but remember that all your free time will be dedicated to the program. We estimate that you should invest at least 15 hours per week, besides the attendance to class.

How will I get the skills of Web Development?

The training will be hands-on, guided by experts who combine teaching with their own projects and work. You will have to develop your own projects and exercises based on real life cases since day one. The best learning tool is feedback: this is key for learning at Ironhack. There are no grades or exams, this is disruptive education focused on the real job market.

Is it possible to learn all this is 3 months (Full Time) or 6 months (Part Time)?

Yes, it is possible! You will need to dedicate a lot of work, show true passion and make sure this is for you.

What is the average salary of a Web Developer?

The salary range of a Web Developer depends on the level of expertise and specialization, as well as the specific country he/she is looking for a job. Usually, at Ironhack our students have a Junior profile and get jobs that don't require any previous experience. You can ask your Admissions Manager in the specific campus you choose, to know about the estimated salary in the country where you want to study.

What kind of job will I be able to get after graduating from Web Development?

Usually, the profile our students have is Junior Full Stack Developer. According to your expectations, experience and interests, you can specialize after or use the learned skills as a complement to your current profession.
