That’s why we've developed a one-year bachelor’s degree in development, which you can complete entirely online with the help of a dedicated mentor.

  • Scaling Rails applications
  • Bringing mock-ups to life in a beautiful and consistent manner
  • Optimizing page loading time
  • Communicating with front-end developers for information exchange across the application
