WHAT DO WEB DEVELOPERS DO?

The world of web development includes a whole range of specializations. Here are a few of them.

Front-End Developer

Front-end developers create the look and feel of a website or application — manipulating colours, fonts, text fields, images, buttons and banners. They program these interfaces to create responsive, user-friendly, and interactive user experiences.

Back-End Developer

Back-end developers configure the servers and databases that power a website or application, working with other developers and designers to power the front-end of the website. Think of it as being the architect behind a beautifully-designed website or app.

Full-Stack Developer

Full-stack developers can build both the front and back ends of a website or app. Our web development program will give you all the skills you need to become a full-stack developer and sets you to be a lifelong effective, adaptive, and curious learner throughout your career.

  • Quelle est votre politique de remboursement?

    Lighthouse Labs est un établissement d'enseignement privé enregistré dans quatre provinces canadiennes. Afin de respecter les réglementations respectives de chaque province, nous avons quatre politiques de remboursement distinctes:

    Politique de remboursement de bootcamp - Alberta
    Politique de remboursement de bootcamp - Colombie-Britannique
    Politique de remboursement de bootcamp - Ontario
    Politique de remboursement des bootcamps - Québec
    Politique de remboursement des cours à temps partiel

    Politique de remboursement - Colorado, État-Unis

  • Quelle est la différence entre un Bootcamp et un programme Flex ?

    Les bootcamps et les programmes flexibles couvrent le même matériel. Les étudiants des deux programmes se familiarisent avec les concepts et techniques de base du programme qu'ils ont choisi. La principale différence entre ces deux types de cours est leur structure. Un programme Flex est moins intense et se déroule sur une plus longue période. Ces deux programmes existent pour s'adapter à une plus grande variété de styles de vie, de priorités et de rythmes d'apprentissage préférés des étudiants, afin que ceux-ci puissent trouver un équilibre qui leur convienne sans compromettre la qualité.

  • What type of job can I expect to get after graduating from the Web Development Program?

    The Web Development Program will prepare you to work in a role as a professional developer. Some roles you might occupy include web developer, front-end developer, back-end developer, and full-stack developer.

  • Will I get a job after the Web Development Program even if I have no prior background in coding or computer science?

    Yes! You don’t need any experience in coding or computer science to succeed in our Web Development Program and be connected to employment afterwards. This program will provide you with everything you need to work as a professional web developer.

  • Which of your programs and courses are eligible for Career Services?

    Only Bootcamp and Flex Program students are eligible for Career Services.

  • Can I use provincial student aid towards programs at Lighthouse Labs?

    Depending on your province and the program you are applying for, Provincial Student Aid may be available to you.

    Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP):
    • Web Development Immersive Bootcamp and Flex Program
    • Data Science Immersive Bootcamp
    • Cyber Security Immersive Bootcamp

    Student Aid Alberta:

Don't see the program you are applying for in your province? Our Provincial Aid eligibility is constantly being updated, so please contact our Admissions Team for the most up-to-date information.

  • Un programme Flex est-il plus facile qu'un Bootcamp ?

    Ces programmes sont équivalents en termes de contenu. Pour certains, le programme plus intensif d'un Bootcamp peut être plus stimulant, mais pour d'autres, la période plus longue d'un programme Flex peut être plus difficile.

  • Can I enroll in the Web Development Program as an international student?

    To enroll in the Web Development Program, prospective students who aren’t Canadian residents would need to obtain a study permit. If they’re prepared to obtain one they’re more than welcome to apply! However, we do require a short essay of intent and proof of proficiency in English. Students who are not eligible to work in Canada full-time for minimum one year after graduation will also not be eligible for Career Services.

  • What’s the difference between Web Development Program and the Intro to Web Development part-time course?

    The part-time course is an introductory overview of the components that comprise a full-stack web application. This course is great for individuals who are interested in increasing their knowledge about web development, or who work in roles adjacent to tech. The Web Development Program is a more in-depth look at web development, and will provide students with everything they need to kick-start a career as a professional developer.

  • Should I take the Bootcamp or the Flex Program?

    Both these programs exist so as to accommodate students’ lifestyles and priorities. If you’re currently working in a position that you want to continue while training, we recommend you enroll in the less concentrated Flex Program. This is also a great option if you’re a parent or caregiver with substantial childcare duties. If you want to get started with your new career as soon as possible, and don’t want to wait 30 weeks, the Bootcamp is the better option for you. This is also a good fit if you have priorities to attend to half a year down the road.

  • I'm not sure which program to take. How can I decide?

    Your next career move should take your existing skills, interests, goals, and experiences into consideration. You already possess specific skills like problem-solving, creativity, or leadership that can be leveraged into your ideal tech career. All that's missing are the right tech skills: this is where Lighthouse Labs comes in, equipping you with the necessary tools to succeed. We put together the Tech Skills Quiz that aligns your abilities with the best tech career choice and which program to take to get there. Take the quiz today and discover your perfect tech career match.
