Why a degree in front-end web development?

One million computer programming jobs are estimated to be created in the U.S. by 2020 - as well as 700,000 in Europe - thanks to unprecedented growth in the tech sector.

Here at OpenClassrooms, we pinpoint the key skills needed for the most in-demand jobs and develop courses and degrees to train our students in those areas. That’s why we've developed a one year bachelor’s degree in front-end web development, which you can complete entirely online with the help of a dedicated mentor. 

What will I do as a front-end developer?

The front-end developer is a fundamental part of any web team, working closely with back-end developers. Whereas the back-end developer focuses on the internal functioning of the application -  the “plumbing” - the front-end developer builds the interface that users see. They are often in charge of:

  • Bringing mock-ups to life in a beautiful and consistent manner
  • Optimizing page loading time
  • Communicating with back-end developers for information exchange across the application
  • Using best practices to structure HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code as components
  • Writing tests to ensure the site’s front-end accounts for all possible uses
  • Ensuring the maintenance and growth of a site’s front-end
