Q: I want to learn web development, where should I start ?
F5 Works offers mentorship to people who are interested in picking up software development. Most of them have no idea what web and mobile development is about.
As a result, we have prepared a 1 month curriculum for fresh beginners (and even fresh graduate who has no practical skills yet).
The main objective is for the learners to understand the common basic components of building a website.
At the end of the curriculum, learners will have a foundation to move forward, either find a job or continue learning. On the other hand, it also helps learners to confirm (to themselves) their interest in changing their career into software development field.
Project Based Learning
All the content below are free online courses and project topics curated by our development team. Anyone with computer and internet access can complete the curriculum.
There is a goal for the learner to reach by the end of every week. Something like:
- finish all the readings
- explain some technical questions raised by your mentor
- finish coding projects
After first week, the learning process is focusing on practical coding project based work. These projects built by yourselves will be a valuable demonstration of your development skills to your future employers.
Remote or Sitting in F5 Works Office
There will be a developer from F5 Works reviewing your progress and assisting you remotely. Mainly through email and Slack channels. When there are occasions that longer discussion is needed (like explaining conceptual topics), phone calls will be involved.
There were several learners sitting in our office and self-learn as well. On the one hand, learning progress is closely monitored. On the other hand, learners can also get a glimpse of how our daily work look like. However, our office cannot fit in anyone and sometimes too many non-employees here may distract our daily work. Therefore, only selected candidates would be offered such option.
here is the highlight of the materials we provide to our mentees.
Mainly for you to understand how web development is like, so that you know what is needed to build a website.
Spend first week to complete the following online courses:
Build a personal profile website for yourself using bootstrap 4
- draw wireframe on paper or google draw
Optimize your week 3 project code base
re-build a tic-tac-toe website using jQuery
