The backend part web development centers around coding and all the machinations that make the website’s interface and clickable tools operational: this is called the data access layer. It relates to the architecture of a website or a piece of software and includes a slew of programming languages including Java, .NET, Python, PHP and Ruby among others. Learning how to code backend web content centers around learning these programming languages and creating them either statically or dynamically to handle the functionality of web applications.

A backend developer can expect to earn an average salary of over $71,000, according to PayScale. As a fundamental asset to any digital team of project developers, backend developers concentrate on the engineering portion of the process and are in high demand. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates backend developers are seeing an explosion in job growth over the next decade, estimating anywhere between 10-21 percent increase.

SwitchUp offers a list of coding bootcamps to help aspiring developers learn the programming languages necessary to compete in the field of backend engineers and developers. With courses focusing on computer science and programming, SwitchUp’s resources provide the best quality education for distance-learning and on-campus learners.
