Thinking about learning to code and wondering if it's right for you?
Take our short, 12-question assessment to see if software development may be a good fit for you!
Become a Software Developer
Learn high demand skills that will make you a competitive developer in a rapidly expanding industry.
This program is offered through University of Wisconsin-Parkside Professional and Continuing Educations in collaboration with Promineo Tech. Promineo Tech partners with community colleges to prepare participants for high-growth careers in software development.
Promineo Tech is a group of IT professionals and leaders who believe that quality education should be offered at an affordable price.
Select a Program
Most bootcamps run a Full Stack Software Developer program, but we found that it's better to specialize in either Front End or Back End. Because of this, we offer two separate, full-length programs - one for each stack. This way, students spend more time mastering their selected track and becoming strong candidates for a role in development.
Back End Software Developer Program
Back End Software Developers are in charge of building applications that do the behind-the-scenes work. This typically involves receiving requests from a Front End application, processing the request, reading and writing to a database, and responding back to requests from other applications.
In this 18-week, Back End Software Development program, students take three courses to learn the skills and technologies necessary to enter the industry as a Back End Software Developer: Introduction to Java, Relational Databases with MySQL, and Web API Design with Spring Boot.
Skills and technologies learned include Java 1.8, Algorithms, OOP, Design Patterns, Unit Testing, SQL, DDL, DML, Database Concepts, JDBC, Spring Boot, Spring Data, REST, JPA, JWT, AWS, and more.
Front End Software Developer Program
Front End Software Developers build the pieces of applications and websites that users see and interact with. This involves creating components that look good and provide functionality when a user interacts with them. It also involves interacting with the Back End applications and displaying data in an aesthetically pleasing manner.
About the Classes
Students meet for class once a week at a set time in a virtual environment. In addition to the weekly class meeting, students meet once a week for a remote, 30-minute one-on-one with a mentor.
In the Back End Developer program, we cover technologies including, but not limited to: Java, MySQL, Git, CLI navigation, JUnit, JDBC, REST concepts, SpringBoot, Maven, JPA, JWT, log4j, debugging, AWS, and more.
Students will build multiple projects ranging from console applications to full blown Web APIs.
Part Time. Flexible. Fully Online.
