I am looking for online courses for web development and after researching several options in the Greater Vancouver area, I’m most interested in BCIT’s Web Technologies Certificate program.
The Associate Certificate comes first: http://www.bcit.ca/study/programs/6420acert#courses
Then you go for the full certificate: http://www.bcit.ca/study/programs/6420cert#courses
I’ve developed web pages and dabbled in graphic editing as a hobby, but a recent request from a friend has lit a spark and I believe I’m hooked.
I feel I’m more natural at back end web application programming, but still have a desire to keep my graphic editing skills up to date.
I’ve been self-studying for the past month (XHTML, CSS, CMS, PHP and SQL) to reduce the learning curve should I choose a program.
My current goal: Develop the necessary skills (school or self-taught) to get into a development firm and perhaps start a business on the side.
Any feedback on how I’m tackling this would be much appreciated
