Both Will and Walt took us through a short history of the origins of the world wide web.
The earliest websites were mainly just information with very limited features. Then evolved into the early social media era when Facebook and Twitter started. Now, we have the world wide web on all sorts of devices including phones, tablets, and PCs. There are now thousands of different computer languages out there and it’s always tough to figure out what one to use!
During this bootcamp, the 2 speakers also covered the following areas:
Difference between the front end and back end of code.
Backend focuses on your server and databases
Common developer stacks (common computer language combinations)
Live demo of creating a Facebook-;ike app called “LMAObook”
To finish off the session, Will took us through the backend using NodeJS, HapiJS, MongoDb, Heroku and MongoDB Atlas. Walt showed the students the frontend part of web development using React and Netlify through a live demo.
