So you want to get into web development, and you keep hearing about “front-end” and “back-end” positions.
So you’re looking for the very best backend bootcamp of 2022. You’re not alone – most backend engineers earn over six figures according to Glassdoor, plus they have wide and varied job prospects.
It’s time for some speculation on my part 🔗I believe that the job duties of “back-end” and “DevOps” engineers will coalesce to include almost everything that “the user doesn’t see”.
DevOps principles, and CI/CD specifically, are generally presented as a more efficient way to run a software development organization.
The sexiest job title of the decade, data scientist, has spawned about a dozen equally sexy but somewhat confusing and overlapping job titles.
I think we often do a great job of flogging the dead horse of whiteboarding problems when giving coding interview advice.
I’m happy to announce that today we launched our new Learn SQL course! It was a ton of fun to write, but I also had a blast building the back-end infrastructure that allows students to write and execute SQL in the browser.
Vim or VS Code? Tabs or spaces? Rails or Django? The world of programming is fraught with decisions to be made.
“DevOps” is one of the most misunderstood terms in the software development industry. To be clear, I’m not the arbiter of truth when it comes to the definitions of words.
At work, computer scientists build and deploy programs, algorithms, and systems to solve real-world problems. In most tech jobs, they spend the majority of their time working in teams on new software products.
I get really frustrated when I see people and companies online selling unrealistic dreams when it comes to coding education.
I recently spent far too long fighting with Vue’s keyup and keydown functionality while building Boot.
Mark your calendar, because we’re hosting another hackathon in the Boot.dev Discord server! The kickoff meeting will be on Thursday, September 1st at 4PM MST, you can RSVP for that event here in our Discord server.
We’ve just opened up the Boot.dev Blog to public contributions! We’re really excited to see all the great stories that our readers and students will create.
In today’s modern, fast-paced world, we look to StackOverflow, Reddit, and hands-on courses to learn about computer science.
Learning how to get into computer science can be a daunting task. There are so many career paths down which a computer education can take you, so many programming languages to master, and so many skills to learn.
In a word, the future of computer science is promising. In a few more words, the future of computer science is promising, but with challenges to overcome.
A few days ago I received an email regarding Boot.dev where the sender informed me:
With so many job boards out there, it can be terribly confusing to know where to start when you’re looking for a programming job - especially if you’re looking for your first programming job.
The future is bright for career options in computer science with remote work opening up doors that weren’t present before.
Boot.dev has been my side-project for the last couple of years now. Being a learning path for backend developers focused on quality over quantity, I knew early on that it needed to have a really tight feedback loop from students.
I spent a lot of time scouring google with queries like “is computer science hard reddit” back when I was deciding whether I should go ahead and get a computer science degree.
So you’ve decided that backend development is the career for you - congratulations! Many self-taught coders have a hard time deciding between all the various options, but it’s so much easier to learn effectively if you have a clear goal, like backend work, in mind.
If you want to learn to code, there are many strategies to get your coding skills from non-existent to employable.
Step 1: Develop a caffeine addiction. 🔗If you want to add coding to your list of skills, either out of curiosity or to take your career in a whole new direction, you’ve probably considered a coding bootcamp.
