The world is becoming increasingly digitised and the demand for people who can create specific software applications is growing. Software and web developers have become permanent fixtures in practically every industry. You're probably thinking, 'That's great, but who's got the time or money to spend the next three or four years at university learning how to do that?'. Well, contrary to popular belief, it's never been easier to learn how to become a software developer without a degree. So, if you're interested in becoming the next Mark Zuckerberg or Bill Gates, Pitman Training is here to help.
A degree in computer science might be considered advantageous. However, you can develop the same skills in less time and at a lower cost by just taking an excellent adult education course. At Pitman, students have access to an extensive range of career-focused training programmes to help enhance their practical skills and industry expertise. So, if you want to learn how to become a software developer without a degree, Pitman can provide two courses to help you achieve that goal.
Web Developer Diploma
I am sure you will have heard the phrase 'first impressions matter. Web developers are responsible for a website's or web application's first impression. So, when a customer clicks on a business website, it is the web developers' work they see first.
- Design the appearance and layout of websites
- Develop cross-browser and cross-platform websites
- Create and optimise content for websites using graphics, databases, and other elements
- Translate wireframes and storyboards into functional, responsive websites.
Advanced Software and Web Developer Diploma
If you liked the sound of the last two courses, you'll love this. Why? Because the Advanced Software and Web Developer Diploma allow you to do them both at the same time! This diploma is excellent for anyone seeking a career in software and/or web development across a wide range of entry-level positions.
Here is what our students have to say...
"My advice to anyone considering taking this course is that we've only got a limited amount of time on this earth. Instead of sitting there and complaining about your job, be proactive and invest in yourself and your future. If you have a genuine interest in programming, then go for it. You can make a better life for yourself."
Sarah Welland, Web Developer Diploma – "I chose Pitman as my course provider because I had studied with them before. I knew I could trust the course and the people working there to deliver great service. I really enjoyed the course and especially liked learning the CSS style sheet language because it gave me the artistic licence to plan out pages and choose my own images.
"Altogether, the course was fun because you're putting together text and coding and, once you press a button, it all combines. It was nice to see my finished work. In the beginning, I wasn't sure what would result from my coding but then I would see everything responding to the code I'd inputted – it was brilliant! It explains how everything from the internet, the cloud, different programming languages, and computers work. You can even use it to make your own little games!"
