One of the most common questions we get asked at Lighthouse Labs is “why teach full-stack development”? While other bootcamp programs focus on either front-end or back-end, we are steadfast in our commitment to teaching the concepts of both. We believe that a full-stack education provides the best foundation for Junior Developers to have long and rewarding careers no matter their specialization.

Every iOS Developer dreams of having one of their apps do well on the Apple App Store. However, sometimes the most successful apps comes from the most unlikely ideas. Case in point, for our Head iOS Instructor Sam Meech-Ward, this dream became a reality with the release of his Burp and Fart Piano. Born from the mind of an 18-year old in 2010, the app has now seen six iterations and over 1.43 million downloads. We recently chatted with him to discuss the success of the app and some of the biggest lessons learned from the creation and upkeep of it.
