“The median salary for an entry-level full stack web developer in the CSRA is between $35,000 and $45,000,” said Chase Lanier, Education Director at “Our intensive three-month Code Bootcamp is designed to help interested applicants gain the skills necessary for a potential new role as a junior full-stack web developer.” Code Bootcamp teaches six fundamentals within four core disciplines:ï

  • The Fundamentals (HTML/CSS): Our first core discipline will focus on the display layer of the internet. In this course module, we’ll focus on using HTML and CSS to render content to the user’s browser. This foundational technology will be used as the primary core output for the remainder of the code school. You’ll learn the most common HTML tags used in web development, how to manipulate their styles with CSS, and how to design and interact with existing themes and pre-built templates for rapid prototyping and development.
  •  Persistence and Processing (PHP and MySQL/MariaDB): The second core discipline will introduce the fundamentals of your first programming language and the basics of database design and implementation. This course module will gradually introduce programming concepts and prepare you to query, process, and render data stored inside a persistent database.
  • The Interactivity (Javascript): Our third major discipline will be a focus on the connectivity language behind every major browser. In the “Programming Interactivity with Javascript” module, we’ll focus on adding real-time interactivity to your web applications and using Javascript and AJAX techniques to dynamically load content without reloading the web page.
  • The Server Stack (Ubuntu Linux and the Cloud): Throughout this entire course, you’ll learn the ins and outs of installing, updating, configuring, and managing cloud-based virtual private servers through your own private Digital Ocean web server running Ubuntu Linux. You’ll learn basic command-line navigational commands and techniques to spin up servers for Apache, MySQL (or MariaDB), PHP, and more.

At the conclusion of the Bootcamp, students will attend a job fair where they can share their work and engage with possible future employers. Code Bootcamp is a partnership of Work Source East Central Georgia, Augusta Technical College and and is supported by AT&T.
