Why Python

Python is the language of choice for new programmers due to its simplicity. As one of the fastest evolving languages, Python is used all over the world to build web apps and create enterprise applications. For the purpose of the Full-Stack program, we use it to teach the backend.

Why JavaScript

JavaScript is the language of choice to build and design the frontend part of websites or web applications. It is the only language that can run both in the browser and on the server and provides the opportunity to build the entire product with one technology.
