Turing School's curriculum is all about web development, where there are thousands of open roles. Some people look for "Full-Stack" training, but we believe that it's best to develop a deep knowledge in one area. That's why we offer two full-time programs that are accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training.
Front End engineers work close to the actual user of the software. Many Front End developers have an interest in visual design, but it is not a design discipline.
Back End engineers work close to the data and how that data moves, changes, and grows over time. A Back End engineer can build a fully-functioning web application, but the majority of their work is all the parts of an application you don't see.
In this program, students focus on building "server-side" applications. They learn to write Ruby, leverage the Ruby on Rails framework, and work with SQL databases.
Unsure of which program is right for you? Don’t stress! The application process is the same for e ither program, so you can still start your application now.
Most people attend a Try Coding event to help them decide between the Front End and Back End programs.
Cohorts for both full-time programs begin approximately every 7 weeks. We suggest applying sooner rather than later to ensure you get a spot in the cohort of your choice. Space is limited so that we can maintain an ideal instructor-to-student ratio, and some cohorts fill up before the suggested application deadline!
