About the Programme
A backend developer is a coding virtuoso who specializes in crafting the intricate machinery that powers digital experiences. Unlike frontend development, which focuses on the user interface and experience, backend development centers around the server-side operations that make applications functional, secure, and responsive. In essence, backend developers create the backstage magic that enables seamless communication between the user interface, databases, and external services.
Our 8-week hybrid learning programme for backend developers offers a deep dive into the intricacies of backend development, equipping participants with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in this dynamic field. By the end of the programme, you will be well-prepared to build, optimize, and maintain robust backend systems that drive seamless user experiences.
