You want to stay up-to-date with today’s web design tools, but these days it seems that there are a ton of different options out there. JavaScript, Backbone.js, Less…which tool best matches your needs and your project?

HTML and CSS Development

If you are a front-end developer looking to create a cutting edge website, make sure you consider courses in HTML5 and CSS3. HTML5 allows developers to create web-based apps that can run in any browser and adds rich multimedia capabilities. For a more extensive set of features, check out Less and Sass, preprocessors for CSS that extend the functionality of CSS with features like variables, functions, and nesting selectors, to create a more efficient and easier to maintain site.

JavaScript and Its Frameworks

JavaScript has become one of the most powerful languages for web applications. Adaptable and open source, JavaScript is both quick to learn and difficult to fully master, especially with its growing variety of toolsets. Frameworks like AngularJS, jQuery, and Ember.js will help you create interactive, robust, web applications. For back-end development, Node.js is an event-driven, server-side environment that performs I/O operations asynchronously increasing speed and functionality.

Backbone.js and Jasmine

With the complexity of modern applications, even dedicated programmers are looking for the cleanest and most productive coding techniques. Backbone.js provides organization and structure with reusable, scalable code. Courses in Jasmine will help you create behavior-driven tests to make sure complex applications run without damaging bugs or unusual behaviors.
