    • best practices - cover best practice principles of building software with sustainable, efficient, clean, readable code. 
    • complete: we build a solid foundation for web developers.
  2. Curriculum prepares for real life:
    • during the study we create a real life projects and components. All the technologies must be integrated into the project portfolio.
    • Lectures cover questions frequently asked on interviews.
