Back-end Development

Every web or mobile app has 2 parts: a front-end and a back-end. The front-end is what the user sees and interacts with. The back-end is where the data gets processed and stored.

The average salary for a back-end developer is $121,112 per year in the United States.

Here are the courses I've created for anyone pursuing a career as a professional back-end developer.

Core Skills

These are the skills that are listed in most job descriptions. Every back-end developer must know how to work with databases, version their code using Git, collaborate with others using GitHub and potentially ship software using Docker.

Languages and Frameworks

There are many programming languages and frameworks out there for building back-ends, but you don't need to know them all. If you're just starting out, focus on one language. You can learn other languages as you move jobs. I currently have back-end development courses on four languages.
