About the Full-Stack JavaScript Developer Certificate

You cannot access this course anymore.

The prerequisite of earning RisingStack's Full-Stack JavaScript Certificate was attending our 12 week long online bootcamp and then building an application based on our requirements.

The recipients of our certificate successfully built a fully functional online inventory application with Node.js and React.js + Redux from scratch, using MongoDB and RESTful APIs. The application had to be able to handle users as well, therefore proper registration, authentication and login features were implemented. The Server API of the application had to reach at least 80% coverage.

The attendees of our bootcamp had to present their application for the senior staff of RisingStack and showcase that all required functionality was implemented. After a student successfully showcased her/his application, the engineers of RisingStack examined the code and quizzed the attendees.

The quiz part of the exam was based on the topics covered by the bootcamp.

The developers who recieved RisingStack's Full-Stack JavaScript Certification are the ones who succesfully showcased their application and scored at least 80% on the subsequent quiz.
