What is the difference between Front-end, Back-end and Full Stack Web development?
Front-end Web Development: Front-end is what people see and interact with when on a website or web application. Font-end makes a website look the part and enhance the user experience. Languages often used in front-end are HTML, CSS and JavaScript.
Back-end Web Development: Back-end is more “behind the scenes” where the server, database and applications communicate with each other on your host site. Languages often used in back-end are PHP, .NET, MySQL, and more.
Full Stack Web Development: Yes, you guessed it; full stack is the combination of front-end and back-end development – pretty much an all-rounder. A full stack web developer can code a full web application.
What is the difference between full-time, part-time and on-demand? (Can I work at the same time?)
Full-time courses generally run for a couple of weeks from 10am to 5pm over a few consecutive days (usually Monday to Friday) - in a classroom.
Part-time courses usually have lectures twice a week - 4 hours per week in a class room and weekly 1 hour live online tutorial sessions with a live lecturer. Usually these hours are afterhours - you can easily do this in your spare time.
On-demand courses are available to you immediately, with access to all course material, and lectures - in the comfort of your own home. Some courses also have a live tutor that you can book limited one on one live sessions with!
Do I have to be good at math to do coding?
This myth has been busted. Coding is about using computer language to create beautiful website “stories”, to entertain and wow users, or to solve logical problems using step by step algorithms. You generally don’t need math to design front end websites, or use algorithms for back-end programming.
How much prior knowledge is required? What is the Entry Level?
It depends on the course you pick. Most Codemaster Institute courses are for beginners. There are some courses (like the back-end course) that require prior study, or at least some basic coding knowledge. However, we make sure no one is left behind, and no one will be slowed down.
I’m really not sure, which one should I do? Front-end, Back-end or Full Stack Web development?
It all depends on you and what you want to achieve, why you want to learn coding and how much time you would like to put into it.

In most cases, if you want to improve your knowledge and learn new skills for your current job, we advise you start by taking the 12 week front-end part time course, and then move onto the 5 week Back end part-time course (We bundle the two together for a discount). They are ideal for working people. O and did we mention the fees paid for the part time course gets credited in full if you ever decide to take the full stack advanced course! That’s pretty awesome.

If you would like to change your career then it might be better to get your hands dirty on the full stack advanced course where Codemaster Institute arranges internships with many developer and tech companies in Australia.
How does the internship assistance work and how can I get it?
Codemaster Institute has teamed up with leading developer and tech companies in Australia to assist in getting internships for our full stack advanced course coding students. We help you land internships - this is selective, so we expect 100% commitment! We open the door, and you have the opportunity to step inside, and make a good impression.
Internships usually lasts a few weeks, but can vary depending on the each company’s needs.
We get as many internship places as we can, but we require that you complete the full stack web development course and show 100% commitment.
How many students are in a class?
Codemaster Institute pride themselves to give all our students undivided and individual attention and resources needed to succeed, but this means our class sizes are very limited. Generally we have no more than 15 students per class. Some classes also have additional tutors, so this means you get personal attention – to help you succeed!
Will I get a certificate?
YES, you will attain a certificate at the end of the course. This is great for your resume. We strive to provide you an excellent educational experience with talented instructors and well worked out education plans. It is a career development kick-starter. This is perfect for personal or professional career development. We always encourage further study with higher education or VET institutes should you wish.
Are there any Exams in Codemaster Institute courses?
No! There are no exams. We focus on hands on, practical experience, working on real industry related projects so you are job ready when you finish. You get to “practice” your skills over and over until you master them!
How much additional time do I need to dedicate to a course outside of the classroom?
It varies for each course and from person to person. For a part time course be prepared to work hard and spend a few hours after the class or during the week to be sure you master and review what you have learned. For the full time courses, most study occur in classroom, but you may have to spend some time at our recommended networking events, or working on your extra projects all to shape your opportunities for a future career in coding!
