Payscale reports that junior web developers in the Bay Area have a median income of $79K--not including additional compensation in the form of benefits and bonuses.

Our curriculum has been specially devised by successful web developers-turned-executives. They know what skills web developers need to know to get hired because they’ve spent years hiring web developers themselves. You’ll emerge from the program with the up-to-date skills to get you work now.
For web developers new to the field, a strong portfolio is the next best thing to real-world experience. So in this course, instead of focusing on grades, you’ll focus on building your portfolio yet another opportunity to learn by doing.
And because knowing how to get the job is just as important as knowing how to do the job, career development is woven directly into the curriculum by way of seminars, mock technical and behavioral interviews, and one-on-one career coaching with experts.
This part-time, online course offers flexibility without sacrificing support.
Here at Cal Poly Extended Education, we see learning as an active pursuit, not a passive one. But if we’re going to expect members of our community to actively pursue their education, we have to ensure that that education is accessible. For nearly a decade, in tech hubs around the nation, coding bootcamps have been a part of the educational landscape. Now, we have a chance to open up the high-caliber skills training they offer to a wider audience--our own Cal Poly Extended Education community--and we can’t wait to see what you do with this opportunity.
