Develop a rewarding career with our Full Stack Developer certificate

If you’re looking for an industry bursting with high-salary opportunities, tech is it. Everyone needs full stack developers – and there’s a major talent shortage. The Chang School offers a Certificate in Full Stack Developer that will give you the technical skills you need to excel in this fast-growing field. What's even better? You can take our full stack developer courses online, and you can finish the certificate in a year or less.

Our full stack developer courses offer a ton of hands-on, practical experience to set you up for success in this booming industry. There are no prerequisites for any of the courses, so you can get started right away and take the courses in any order.

You’ll learn how to do front-end development and production, crafting responsive web pages with full-stack tools like Unix Shell and Github. We train you in back-end development, deployment and analysis, showing you how to create and query dynamic databases using SQL and Python. Middleware and beta testing are covered in our full stack development courses, too, and you’ll also boost your soft skills with training in Agile and hybrid project management, presentation skills, and stakeholder collaboration.

Another way our full stack developer training stands out: our commitment to mentorship and peer support. We offer virtual mentor services, providing a virtual mentor for one-on-one Zoom meetings and email consultations about full stack course assignments, final projects and career advice. You can also tap into our employer network on LinkedIn – where professional developers offer career and networking support. Employers will also be present for your final course presentations to evaluate your work and to provide real-world feedback.
