Frontend Career Path

A frontend engineer job is financially and experientially rewarding, not just because of the high pay and job security, but also because end users use and enjoy your work every day—sometimes millions or even hundreds of millions of users, depending on the company you work for or the applications you build.

Our frontend engineering program prepares you to become a worldclass frontend engineer.

Bov Academy Frontend Engineer career path is likely the most comprehensive education in frontend programming in the world, as you yourself will see below in the What You Will Learn section.

Standard Prerequisites

  • Skillful use of the computer and the either Windows, Linux, or Mac
  • Competent problem-solving skills; you should be able to solve at least basic algebra problems
  • Understanding of basic HTML, CSS, and JavaScript: Although we teach you just about everything you need to know to become a skilled competent and confident frontend engineer, you should know the basics.

Adv. Fast-Track Prerequisites

  • Intermediate expertise and professional experience using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Proof of professional UI development expertise
  • Intermediate use of Git, GitHub, and the Command Line
  • Successful completion of the Adv. Fast-Track technical exercise (This will be given during the admission interview.)

Areas of Specialization Available

You can choose one of the areas of specialization below, which you will get to select when you fill out the application:

  • Frontend Engineering: You will focus on becoming a proficient frontend engineer (one of the most highly paid of all software engineers). You will learn UI/UX development, JavaScript programming proficiency (nearly the entire JavaScript language), problem-solving, frontend web application architecture, and frontend frameworks (Ember, Vue, and React.)

    This differs from frontend developer below. Frontend engineers are trained as software engineers, and will thus learn more advanced programming concepts and application architecture concepts.

    Only Bov Academy offers a career path in frontend engineering.

  • Frontend Development: You will focus on becoming a proficient frontend developer—one of the most highly paid of all programming career paths. You will learn UI/UX development, JavaScript programming proficiency, and frontend frameworks (Ember, Vue, and React). You won't focus much on complex problem-solving, complex programming, and frontend application architecture, as these are taught in the frontend engineer career path.

    This frontend developer career path is for the frontend developer positions you see advertised in most job applications and on the websites of many coding schools.

  • UI/UX Development: You will focus on UI/UX development, with specialization in accessibility, interactive and innovative user interface development, and animation. You will develop sophisticated user interface, learn the relevant parts of pure JavaScript (with less focus on programming and more on UI development) and frontend web app development, but with a heavy focus on user interface development and interactive interface development.
  • Mobile Development: You will learn web application fundamentals and use these technologies to develop native iOs/Android development with real-world API-connected, data-driven, authenticated mobile apps. An you focus on creating native iOS apps with Apple technologies.

    When you complete this career path, you should be a formidable mobile app and UI/UX developer with the skills to:
    • Create iOS native apps using Apple technologies (including Swift)
    • Quickly create cross-platform native apps (for iOS and Android) using web technologies such as JavaScript, HTML/CSS, and React Native
    • Create sophisticated UIs for frontend applications
    • Integrate mobile app and frontend web apps to serverless backend
  • Internet Startup: If you want to build your own startup or an MVP for your startup, we can create a custom curriculum for you, and you could build your startup as part of your coursework while you learn to become a frontend developer. Contact Richard (rb@bovacademy.com) to learn more about the specialized curriculum.

What You Will Learn in the Frontend Engineer Specialization

Standard Track

(Adv. Fast-Track Students will Skip the Intro Courses)

Typically, we teach you just about everything you should know to become confident and proficient in your career path. We aren't aware of any other similar program, to our knowledge, that does this. For example, you will learn:

  • Git, GitHub, the command line
  • Almost the entire JavaScript language, HTML, and CSS
  • Design patterns
  • JavaScript testing
  • Responsive design
  • Computer science math for web programmers
  • How to become a proficient problem solver
  • The art of programming
  • The art of frontend development
  • UI/UX design; in-depth UI development
  • Web Accessibility
  • Skillful written communication
  • React.js or Vue.js or Ember.js
  • How to architect frontend applications
  • Software development principles
  • And much more.

We focus on the following four core technical skills:

  • Problem-Solving: You will learn from the basics how to solve logic and algorithm problems, and you will learn how to become a skilled problem-solver. You yourself will even solve scores, possibly, hundreds of problems.
  • UI/UX Development: To be regarded as one of the best UI/UX developers in the world, you must have the skills and confidence and panache to develop refined, complex, and meticulous UI. You must have the sensibility and grace to distinguish mediocre UIs and experiences from exceptional ones. We teach you all of these things and more.
  • Programming: We expect you to graduate with confidence and expertise in the programming language or languages you need to master to excel in your chosen career path. Specifically, if you take our frontend or fullstack program, you will learn much of the entire JavaScript language—the important JavaScript concepts relevant to frontend development. We expect you to become a confident and formidable JavaScript engineer by the time you graduate. In the fullstack program, you will also learn Python.
  • Domain Proficiency: We help you acquire deep knowledge and proficiency in your area of specialization. If your focus is frontend engineering, we teach you the tools, techniques, and technologies used by professional, world-class developers and we expect you to be skilled in those technologies and tools.

Courses

  • Command Line for Web Developers, Git and GitHub
  • Intro to JavaScript and UI Development
  • Mastering UI/UX Design (Optional)
  • Improving Your Written Communication Skills
  • Mastering JavaScript and Modern Web Development
  • Becoming a JavaScript Expert (Mastering to Advanced and Beyond)
  • Art of Programming
  • Building a Sophisticated Web Application
  • Architecting Frontend Web Applications
  • React.js or Vue.js or Ember.js In Depth
  • Art of Modern Frontend Development
  • Doing the Extraordinary: Building and Launching Your Pinnacle Project

Projects You Build

You will develop the following:

  • Your portfolio, which will showcase your work, your Evidential Degree
  • More than a dozen projects, some of them pure JavaScript projects and one of them an innovative project, that is, a UI component that you will be the first person in history to build and which other developers and website will could use later when it is released in an open-source innovative UI library
  • Two sophisticated real-world web apps that will be used to solve real problems. One of these projects will be your Pinnacle Project, your graduation project, which you will start developing before you graduate. However, you won't complete the project before graduation. This project must meet the following requirements:
    • It must be significant in scope; it can't be a simple UI component or a portfolio-like website.
    • It must advance humanity in some regard.
    • If it is a for-profit (that is, not a nonprofit and not an open-source project), it must have the potential to help you gain some kind of long-term benefit.

Your Pinnacle Project can be an AI Humanity or Bov Academy project. For more on this, you may contact Nathan Plummer, NathanP@BovAcademy.

Jobs You May Qualify For: Frontend Engineer, Software Engineer, Frontend Developer, JavaScript Frontend Developer, JavaScript Developer, UI/UX Developer, Advanced JavaScript Developer
