Full-Stack Your Career Odds in Your Favor With Simplilearn and Caltech CTME

The partnership between Simplilearn and Caltech CTME continues to expand the benefits we offer digital economy professionals. Through our partnership, we already provide career-launching programs in DevOps and Cloud Computing. We're proud to announce our next program with Caltech CTME, a Coding Bootcamp in Full Stack Web Development.

The Three Tiers of the Full Stack

Modern web sites, pages, and applications follow a three-tiered structure. At the top level is the Front End, the part that is visible to the user. The front end is delivered through the user's client machine and web browser. Front end technologies include HTML, CSS, Javascript, Typescript, and Angular.

The middle tier is the Back End. The back end resides on a server and generally includes the programming logic behind each web page or application. The back end has to talk to the front end and the database and can include technologies such as JSP, REST, SQL, JDBC, and Hibernate.

The bottom tier is the Database. The database provides a data storage and retrieval service for the back end, organizes the data in a standardized way, and processes the logic of structured or unstructured queries. Where SQL databases like MySQL were once the standard for structured databases, now NoSQL databases like MongoDB provide an alternative with more flexibility in how data can be structured.

There are associated technologies that tie the tiers together. Frameworks like Spring facilitate connecting components to build web applications. DevOps tools provide management and automation of the development and deployment of web solutions. Agile and Scrum techniques can accelerate product development and ensure compliance with customer requirements.

It's very common for web developers to specialize in a single tier of the stack. You might be a Front-End Developer, a Back-End Developer, or a Database Engineer. Specialist developers work in teams to cover all three tiers of the web stack.

You have the option to learn and work in all three tiers of the web stack as a Full-Stack Developer. The Coding Bootcamp in Full Stack Web Development, a collaboration of Simplilearn and Caltech CTME, gives you a winning combination of Caltech's world-renowned technology expertise and the world-class digital skills training of Simplilearn.
