Front-end Web Development

If a web application were a car, HTML would be the steel frame, CSS the paint, and JavaScript the engine. Learn the basics and then some: Responsive Design, React, Command Line, Frameworks, APIs, Version Control (Git), Debugging, and much more.

Back-end Web Development

Applications with no back-end are limited in their functionality, thus the demand for "full stack" developers: JS, Python, Databases, Node.js, Express, Terminal, Npm Modules, Get & Post, HTTP, Hosting — the list goes on.

What is the Web Development Certificate?

Our part-time web development certificate is designed to give students an introduction to web development and the skills needed to pursue a career path in tech. Our curriculum includes courses on both front-end and back-end development to provide students with a well-rounded experience in the different areas of web development.

"developer" = "engineer" = "coder"

Students will have the option of learning online or in person at our Atlanta campus in a bootcamp format. Bootcamp classes are held in the evenings and on Saturdays allowing students the ability to continue in their day job while studying new skills.

High Level Curriculum

At DigitalCrafts, you study industry-relevant tools and strategies. More importantly, you'll explore how to prepare for the job market of tomorrow.

Live Online or In-Person Classes

Full-Time | Part-Time

The below schedule is meant to demonstrate a typical day, but every class is different.

Full-Time // 17-Weeks

10:00am–1:00pm ET

Weekdays | Lectures & Assignments

Every day varies depending on your instructor or how far you are in the curriculum. You might start with a lecture, complete algorithmic exercises, participate in paired programming, or build portfolio projects.

1:45pm–6:00pm ET

Weekdays | Projects & Labs

After a 1-hour break for lunch, class resumes. Students can expect to spend most of their time immersed in code development throughout the program. Whether coding solo or as part of a SCRUM team, you'll work to build fully-functional sites and applications that you can be proud to show off.

Part-Time // 26-Weeks

6:30pm–9:30pm ET

Tuesday & Thursday Evenings

Like the full-time program, your day-to-day will vary. Classes will include lectures, exercises, in-class assignments, and active participation. You’ll sometimes work in simulated team settings with paired programming, groups, and breakout sessions.

10:00am–2:00pm ET


Saturdays in the web dev program will pick up lectures and exercises from earlier in the week. Later weeks are reserved for project and lab time. Because class sessions are shorter and meet less often, students are also expected to complete assigned development homework and projects outside of class hours.

Accelerated Learning and Continued Development


Maximum Effort Required

This program will challenge you, and after a full day of class our students are often charged with completing additional assignments designed to push their abilities as far as possible given such a condensed amount of time. This commitment of time and energy requires grit and determination, but you can do it if you believe in yourself and put in the work.

Elective Workshops

Exclusive Benefit for Students & Alumni

A career in web development requires a lifetime commitment to learning new skills and technologies. We hold elective workshops for students and alumni to help provide continuing education opportunities in various complementary topics. Every technology professional has heard the interview question, "Do you have experience with _?" This is our way of filling in the blank.

As someone who didn't have a clue what I wanted to do until I was in my mid-twenties, web development gave me great purpose, and I am hoping that it can give my students great purpose too. Tan L., Instructor

Web Development Bootcamp FAQs

Base tuition for the online web development and full stack web development bootcamps is $9500. A refundable $99 deposit is required to enroll.

The remaining tuition may be paid in full before class starts, with an installment plan while in class, or financed over 3 to 10 years through one of our lending partners (though you're welcome to use your own if you'd prefer).

Scholarships and other offers are available for those who qualify to help reduce costs.

No, though prior experience is welcome, it is not required to apply to DigitalCrafts. Incoming students are assigned the applicable 'Intro Course' to help ensure everyone has some exposure before class starts.

DigitalCrafts web development bootcamp is designed to help students learn about website design, coding, architecture, and maintenance. In web development bootcamp, you will study programming and coding basics, the ins-and-outs of front-end and back-end development, and skills needs to pursue a career path in web development.

Front-end development is the area of the site where the user interacts with the website. It includes everything from the layout of the webpage, the buttons, the search bar, and the site’s logo. Front-end development requires learning HTML, CSS, and Javascript coding languages.

Back-end development is the server side of a website. It involves ensuring that the website performs as it should for a good user experience. Back-end coding languages and frameworks required for back-end development include SQL and Server-side Javascript. Back-end development involves learning skills like DOM Manipulation and how to code. At DigitalCrafts, we teach you front-end and back-end development to help you determine what potential tech and coding career paths you may want to pursue. Visit our blog to learn more about the differences between front-end and back-end development.

New online web development bootcamps start every month. Our Atlanta campus offers in-person web development bootcamps as well. Our full-time bootcamps are 17 weeks with classes held every weekday from 10:00 am- 6:00 pm ET with a 45-minute lunch break. Our part-time bootcamps are 26 weeks with classes held Mon-Thurs from 6:30 pm-9:30 pm ET and Saturdays from 10:00 am-2:00 pm ET./p>

Probably not for the full-time format, which is truly an immersive Monday through Friday experience. If dedicating 40+ hours per week isn't in the cards, consider a part-time format, which is designed with working professionals in mind.

We strongly recommend a recent (~4 years or newer) Macbook with at least 8GB of RAM. Our instructors are proficient with macOS and may not be able to assist you if you have issues with a non-macOS computer.

8GB of RAM minimum, 16GB recommended. At least 30GB of free storage space. Reliable broadband internet for streaming class. Camera and microphone (laptop built-in is fine).

Chromebooks and iPads are not sufficient.

Empower yourself to build functional full-stack web applications using the tools and best-practices the market demands today. If you've ever had an idea but couldn't imagine how to build it, we'll teach you how.

The most valuable goal is to learn how to continue to learn. We want you to leave thinking, "I don't need class anymore, I can master this on my own." Know that this is a career of continuing education. The second you stop learning, you'll find yourself a Blackberry developer! (A what?)

Students receive career support with their program which includes portfolio guidance, mock interviews, and virtual career fairs. In addition, our dedicated Student Services Team is available to provide detailed feedback on everything from cover letters and resumes, to projects, portfolios, and emails to potential employers.
