COMPLETELY REDONE ON OCTOBER 12th 2020, WITH OVER 500 NEW VIDEOS!
Hi! Welcome to the Web Developer Bootcamp, the only course you need to learn web development. There are a lot of options for online developer training, but this course is without a doubt the most comprehensive and effective on the market. Here's why:
  • This is the only online course taught by a professional bootcamp instructor.
  • 94% of my in-person bootcamp students go on to get full-time developer jobs. Most of them are complete beginners when I start working with them.
  • The previous 2 bootcamp programs that I taught cost $14,000 and $21,000. This course is just as comprehensive but with brand new content for a fraction of the price.
  • Everything I cover is up-to-date and relevant to today's developer industry. No PHP or other dated technologies. This course does not cut any corners.
  • This is the only complete beginner full-stack developer course that covers NodeJS.
  • We build 13+ projects, including a gigantic production application called YelpCamp. No other course walks you through the creation of such a substantial application.
  • The course is constantly updated with new content, projects, and modules. Think of it as a subscription to a never-ending supply of developer training.
  • You get to meet my dog Rusty!
When you're learning to program you often have to sacrifice learning the exciting and current technologies in favor of the "beginner friendly" classes. With this course, you get the best of both worlds. This is a course designed for the complete beginner, yet it covers some of the most exciting and relevant topics in the industry.
Throughout the course we cover tons of tools and technologies including:
  • HTML5
  • CSS3
  • JavaScript
  • Bootstrap 4
  • SemanticUI
  • DOM Manipulation
  • jQuery
  • Unix(Command Line) Commands
  • NodeJS
  • NPM
  • ExpressJS
  • REST
  • MongoDB
  • Database Associations
  • Authentication
  • PassportJS
  • Authorization
This course is also unique in the way that it is structured and presented. Many online courses are just a long series of "watch as I code" videos. This course is different. I've incorporated everything I learned in my years of teaching to make this course not only more effective but more engaging. The course includes:
  • Lectures
  • Code-Alongs
  • Projects
  • Exercises
  • Research Assignments
  • Slides
  • Downloads
  • Readings
  • Too many pictures of my dog Rusty
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. I got into this industry because I love working with people and helping students learn. Sign up today and see how fun, exciting, and rewarding web development can be!Who this course is for:
  • This course is for anyone who wants to learn about web development, regardless of previous experience
  • It's perfect for complete beginners with zero experience
  • It's also great for anyone who does have some experience in a few of the technologies(like HTML and CSS) but not all
  • If you want to take ONE COURSE to learn everything you need to know about web development, take this course

Instructor Details

Colt Steele

Hi! I'm Colt. I'm a developer with a serious love for teaching. I've spent the last few years teaching people to program at 2 different immersive bootcamps where I've helped hundreds of people become web developers and change their lives. My graduates work at companies like Google, Salesforce, and Square.
Most recently, I led Galvanize's SF's 6 month immersive program as Lead Instructor and Curriculum Director. After graduating from my class, 94% of my students went on to receive full-time developer roles. I also worked at Udacity as a Senior Course Developer on the web development team where I got to reach thousands of students daily.
I've since focused my time on bringing my classroom teaching experience to an online environment. In 2016 I launched my Web Developer Bootcamp course, which has since gone on to become one of the best selling and top rated courses on Udemy. I was also voted Udemy's Best New Instructor of 2016.
I've spent years figuring out the "formula" to teaching technical skills in a classroom environment, and I'm really excited to finally share my expertise with you. I can confidently say that my online courses are without a doubt the most comprehensive ones on the market.
Join me on this crazy adventure!

I liked how the course was structured; it provided a great foundation for someone who knows very little about code and web development. I also enjoyed the code alongs, which helped with practicing and reinforcing what I had just learned. After taking this course, I feel more confident in writing and understanding code and I'm very excited to apply what I've learned to make my very own websites and applications.

Colt is such a good combination of a professional /knowledgable developer and a humourous/ interesting teacher. Love the course. Getting this course in a Udemy discount is such a steal. Probably the best thing I did in 2019

By David on 3 months ago

Colt is probably one of the best (if not maybe the best) instructor I've ever had. I've attended live lectures and seminars and even though I've learned a lot in those live lectures, I actually learned much so much more from him. Thanks!

By Terrence Eisenhower on a month ago

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Colt and his fellow instructors did a great job going over every topic. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking to either brush up on preexisting skills or create new ones.Thank you!

By John Reynolds on a week ago

I liked the overall course. I learned a lot and felt that the course materials were well-presented and thorough. The challenges and exercises were good at making me think about the material that was presented.The only criticisms I have are that I wish Colt would speak at a slightly slower pace, as I frequently had to pause and scrub back to understand what was said to follow along with what was typed on-screen, and that the updates to the course materials seemed to occasionally not directly relate to what was being updated.However, even given my criticisms, I liked the overall course and felt like it was well-worth my time and money. I have already purchased two other courses by this instructor and I am looking forward to learn more from Colt and his TA's.

By Michael Dawson on a month ago

Yes I'd say it was. I learned more doing this course than I ever thought possible. I also know that this is just the beginning of my journey as a web developer. This goes way beyond knowing basic HTML. I hope to apply very soon all that I have learned doing this course.

By Kayd Anderson on a week ago

This was a great course on basic web development. They begin to touch on the more complicated stuff and would have been better to have similar walk-throughs in the 'complicated stuff' as in Colt's videos. Awesome job guys and thank you!!!!

By Rebecca Chumley on a month ago

This course was a great match for me. Colt's knowledge, tone and method of delivery of new concepts made for a great course. The courses use of the Discord App allows students to connect and seek Q&A. This facilitates deeper learning. In addition, having a TA monitor Discord and provide supplemental material is yet another great feature.

Colt have told he will complete the Yelpcamp project but he didn't . Ian try to cover the remaining yelpcamp project but I personally think in Ian yelpcamp videos concept wise learning is less it focuses more on completing stuff. And also after refactoring the whole project when they created the routes folder they should have told the actual workflow of the code that when we click on routes the code will first go where .??But nevertheless it is a great course learnt lot of things.Thanks.

By Nick LastName on 2 months ago

A little torn on how to rate this course. On one hand, Colt is a good teacher--pleasant to listen to, fluid/articulate, mostly cohesive in the way he presents material, and engaging enough to help the listener through some pretty dry and tedious topics. The course also does a good job teaching the basic fundamentals of web development, and how the numerous fundamental components interact.All that said, the course is old (going on 5 years?) and it really shows in a number of ways, often times yielding an annoying or confusing learning experience. Similarly, given the age of the course, a lot of the code itself is less than relevant (most notable example being the older version of JS, lacking async, promises, arrow functions, etc). Still, one could argue that learning the fundamentals of the older JS version allows a dev to better appreciate and understand the updates. That argument may hold a bit of weight, but not much.The course itself started strong but really begins to decline as one moves through the units. The climax was about as disappointing as prom night for the school tuba player. As you make your way into the YelpCamp project, you begin to lean heavily on packages and frameworks (express, passportjs, ejs, and many more). These allow Colt to share an experience in creating a web application that is somewhat functional and simple, at the cost of abstracting away from the actual underlying concepts that are necessary to understand if you want to move outside the rigid development parameters of this course.Also important to keep in mind that this course teaches a very specific stack of web development: typical front-end, the backed using Nodejs, with a non-relational database (MongoDB). If your goal is to find employment, look up posts in your area and see what's commonly used--chances are this stack may not be too prevalent (most established companies use relational DBs).Some suggestions for Cole on the user experience:Clean up the discontinuity. Whether it's switching code editors midway through, using a different cloud IDE, constantly interrupting units with lecture notes that address some change, bug, or error that describe how the subsequent vid's code is somehow moot; my general feeling was that the course was much more tedious and scattered than it needed to be.Tie up loose ends. YelpCamp is a good project, but it wasn't executed as you described in its introduction. I got the sense that, by the end of it, you were beginning to get bored. A lot of functionality is missing. There are some links provided at the end, but you never addressed it. I think a short "Here's where you can go from here" vid would go a long way.Say goodbye. Call me sentimental, but after spending so much time together, I was disappointed how things ended. It was like losing power in a movie theater. The final unit of the entire course was done by someone we'd never before met, reading from a script, who constantly reminds us "Don't worry--these JS concepts are tough, but we will really get into them in great detail." The videos are 2-3 minutes. Again, a simple video tying everything together, congratulating me on the completion of the course, with suggestions on where to go next (missed opportunity here for promoting your other courses), would go far.TLDR: Good teacher. Old course. For someone with absolutely no knowledge of web dev, it may be worth to make your way through for exposure with some of the fundamentals, but your time is probably better spent finding an updated course that depends less on frameworks/libraries. You may not complete a sexy(ish--ok just average) web app, but you'll be a better programmer.

Instructor Colt delivers a calm and easy to understand teaching method, which is great! Even though the course is continuously updated, you can tell that the course has been around for a few years now. JavaScript syntax has changed a bit and Cloud9 IDE has basically been closed down, as a few examples. All the updates makes it a bit hard to follow along and keep the momentum going sometimes, due to a lot of sidetracks on YouTube for example. Although, thanks to the course's age and the large number of previous students you can often find answers in the Q&A when you get stuck somewhere.Overall it's a good course that I can recommend for any beginner that wants to learn web development.

By Dane Christensen on 2 months ago

As someone who had a good amount of experience before this course, I can confidently recommend this course for anyone, whether you're just a beginner or have already dabbled in web-development. The instructors/TA's are great at responding to questions and thoroughly made the learning experience more substantive. Thanks!
