Back End Development

Back End Development teaches you to deploy code to the cloud and connect front-end code with databases, api's and other "plumbing" that makes the application work. If you've already completed a Front End course, then Back End is your next logical step. Please note: Freecodecamp.com estimates 400 hours of work on average to complete this module. To complete all ten projects in 12-weeks would require about 33 hours per week devoted to StartFast Code. Some of our students need more than 12-weeks to complete all their projects. In those cases, we offer optional one-month extensions for a nominal $500 extra charge. Students may also complete their projects without continuing classes at no extra charge.
