Is this a full-stack program?

The definition of a “full-stack” varies widely across the industry (and among individual professionals). While some people argue that a true full-stack developer is rare, most professionals agree that it’s unfair to call a graduate of a code school a “true” full-stack developer. Even if they’ve been exposed to the concepts, the label is a misnomer because they lack experience building and scaling various types of web applications.

Our curriculum covers full-stack concepts, comprised of front-end and back-end programming fundamentals. Graduates of our Web Development Career Path are fully-qualified, junior-level, professional developers. They have specialized in either front-end or back-end technologies, but are fully equipped to understand and contribute in a full-stack development setting.
