PhillyDevCamp provides a comprehensive introduction to the languages, technologies, and best practices used by today's web software developers. On the back-end, we will teach students about PHP, Drupal, Ruby, Rails, and MySQL. We will strengthen students' knowledge of HTML and CSS, and introduce them to jQuery, Node.js, and Angular.js. Since a developer is more than just the languages he or she knows, PhillyDevCamp students will also learn the soft skills involved with development such as how to keep code organized, how to ask the right questions, and where to look to help when it's needed.
