Specialization

Full-Stack Web Development

Learn advanced skills and frameworks

Holberton's web stack specialization advances the web development principles and skills introduced prior. During the specialization, students approach and build various web applications in all the most recent frameworks.

True to Holberton's culture and approach to learning, the most important part is not knowing the details of a specific framework but learning how to be ready to build on future frameworks.
