Why Advanced Front-End With React?


Advanced front end development is an in-demand skill that is unique amongst software disciplines. Front end development focuses on creating applications that people can interact with. Front end developers pride themselves on coding for people, not machines, meaning that they have an element of creativity that back end developers may not. For these reasons, front end developers are keenly sought after by employers and also have the opportunity to express themselves more in their work than other software positions.
React.js is a vital tool for front end developers, which is why it is rooted so heavily in our advanced front end specialism. You’ll use it to build user interfaces to help your end users benefit from the speed and quality of experience that React provides.

Frequently Asked Questions

Skill paths
When do I have to make my choice of skill path?

You can choose your Specialisation approximately two-thirds of the way through the programme, just before you complete your fourth portfolio project.

How will Full Stack Development + Front End Specialisation help me to accelerate my career change?

Now, with the added choice of our advanced front end specialism, our students have an opportunity for even more recognition from employers by completing our university credit-rated programme.

What is Advanced Front End with React.js?

React is a library. A library is something that allows developers to share code they have written that solves everyday problems. React prevents everyone from having to reinvent the wheel every time they knock across the same problem. It also means if someone comes up with a clever way of doing something, they can make it available to everyone else. That is exactly what Facebook did. They wanted to build a richer and more responsive user experience. So they built this super-fast and super-easy library to build great user interfaces and shared it with everyone.

It cuts down development time for everyone, improves quality and means you can do exciting things quickly. As a result, it’s one of the most popular development libraries in the world. Apart from Facebook, it is also used by Instagram, the BBC, The New York Times, PayPal, and of course Code Institute!

Is React.js in demand?

In a word? Yes. Thousands of companies worldwide use React.js because it allows them to build web applications faster and smarter. Employers like Facebook, Instagram, Netflix, Uber, Airbnb, Amazon, the BBC, The New York Times, PayPal and of course Code Institute, to name but a few, use it because it delivers easier-to-manage applications that get products to market faster.

Academic Qualification
What does university credit-rated mean?

A university credit-rating means that a university has examined our programme and has classed it on a qualifications framework. Our Diploma has been credit-rated by The University of the West of Scotland. They have levelled it at Level 8 on the Scottish Qualification Framework. This is the equivalent of level 5 on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and Level 5 on the European Qualification Framework (EQF).
