      Web developers can do the same things as front-end developers but are also well-versed in how complex websites with databases work. They know how to create an API and control the logic of server interactions. Other technologies used in web development are Node.js and SQL. We want to teach you how to use the tools required to succeed as a web developer.

      I really enjoyed my mentors – Grigoriy, Darya, and Aleksey! They did a great job making sure to explain the theory in an easy to digest way. At one point, I was really freaking out about my first responsive design assignment. But Grigoriy was so super-reassuring and helpful in his feedback, that I started to feel very confident. As a result, now I know how to design a mobile-first site that will look great on any screen. And more!

      The best course ever. Don't hesitate to take it if you want to learn how to build websites and apps. I had no background at all, but those awesome mentors did a very good job explaining the basics. The lectures were easy to follow. Immediate practice and satisfaction after completing every assignment made me want more. And here I am now, a proud owner of the course certificate and all the knowledge I wouldn't get elsewhere. Thanks so much, guys!

      I was very excited to find this training. I work in web development for several years now. And I am always looking for high-quality learning resources for our interns. I thought an intensive 7-months course would be a great addition to their 20 hours per week internships, and oh my, was I right.

      Practicum instructors clearly have real-world industry experience and are tech-native. The whole course leads you from the very basics all to the way up to final project culmination. And I can tell you that the knowledge acquired in this course is very close to what I expect from a junior developer when considering him for a full-time position. Apps and landings projects you work on during the course are far from being trivial. They will prepare you for real-world web development if you work hard enough.

      At first, I thought that there was a little too much hand-holding. But then I realized that there are people with no IT background doing it on their own at their homes, so the amount of hand-holding is just about right. Finally, the course is a great quality/price compromise and is adequately timed.

      What makes Practicum training stand out is its instructors. Web Development mentors are young and techie. They have a lot of practical experience in what they teach. You actually get to interact with them, and they are ready to help and always available to answer your questions. That's what I call pure dedication. Also, I was very nervous about submitting my first coding for review. Apparently, at 35, I still hate being graded! But after receiving the feedback on my first submission, I stopped thinking about the grades and concentrated on the learning process. Many thanks to instructors and the entire Practicum team for these 9 months of intensive learning (I even code in my dreams now!))). Cheers :)

      This was my first experience with online learning. I had no particular expectations except for wanting to learn how to build a simple website for my side hustle. I started with a free part of the course and finally ended up completing the full 9 months of Web development training! If someone had told me six months ago that I'd write a music app in JavaScript and know how to create websites and admin panels, I would have laughed in their face. But guess what, I did it all, thanks to Practicum!

      The thing I liked the most was that there were no big scary chunks of information. On the contrary. The theory was delivered step-by-step in smaller bits and dozes. And the course made us apply them into practice as we went. The interactive platform was very intuitive and learner-friendly. And the mentors were very supportive and commented on every assignment. It's hands down the best course ever. If I could complete it, you can.

      Very well done. The information was well explained in the videos. Every concept was illustrated by a good example and followed by a practical assignment. This helped digest information and understandeach concept clearly. Learners get real-life tasks from the course' day one. This helped me a lot with not forgetting what I'd just learned :DI feel like I was spending more time on my assignments than an average learner (especially when it came to running SQL queries). So mentors' accessibility was highly appreciated. Keeping regular contact with every course instructor really helped me claw through the difficulties of stats and coding.I really recommend this 6-month course to anyone who struggles with basic stats and wants to learn how to structure and analyze data, and how to apply it in business. Thank you, Practicum team, for this intensive learning experience.

The program is structured really well, my professors were coherent and easy-going, the assigned tasks give you a good glimpse of the real life practical application of what you’re learning, and in case I reached out for help my issue was addressed within a very short timeframe, so I’m going with Practicum for the best education online.

I can learn, practice, ask questions, explore, connect with people and enjoy myself while investing in my future. Moreover, it doesn’t require you to sacrifice all of your free time - 10 hours a week does it perfectly. A+ grade for everything.

      I’ve been waiting forever to find a platform like this! What I love is how straight-forward everything is, since I’m basically given a free course from as soon as I land on the website. The trial version is 20 hours long, filled with loads of practical tasks to help you get a taste of what you should be studying before you pay a dollar, which caught my attention right away, because that’s how the customer should always be treated. Great job.

      My name is Jordan, and I am a writer. Or a travel blogger. You name it :) I mostly post on Instagram and Facebook. And even though I've been thinking about a personal website for a while, the idea of building it myself has never even crossed my mind. That's a lie. I tried wix one time but gave up pretty fast. I've always been a humanities kind of kid, so everything that had to do with IT seemed unspeakably boring to me.

      When my roommate started taking a course on Practicum, I began to be curious. Naturally, I thought I'd only take a peek at the free part of the course. But the method of practice-driven learning that comes along with the entire program made me enroll full-time. Plus, I was taken aback by how similar can coding be with creative writing! FYI, in my case, full-time meant studying for somewhat 12 hours per week for six months. The emphasis on hands-on experience is how I prefer to learn. And it's still hard to believe, but during the course, I actually built a site, a landing page, and an app! What started as an attempt to scratch an itch of my permanent curiosity (he-he), turned out to be a whole new path to pursue.

      Huge thanks to all instructors for your continuous encouragement throughout the course. Thanks for being so gentle when delivering feedback. And lastly, thanks to Practicum for showing me that coding is such a creative thing.

      As part of the professional development program, my company encouraged everyone on our team to choose and complete any certified IT course. They offered $1000 to cover the costs and a shorter workday for the time of a program. I'm a software tester. But my hobby is designing plots and worlds for board games. I've been meaning to learn web development for a while now because I've always wanted to create websites for the board games I design. So it was perfect timing.

      When I came across Practicum by Yandex, it seemed very appealing and affordable. And now, after completion of the course, I'm confident to say my expectations were fully met. I was devoting around 10 hours per week to studying. This included practical part — we've all completed 3 hands-on projects during the training. The things I loved the most about the course were the structure of the feedback and the quality of interaction with my mentors. And I definitely enjoyed the fact that it wasn't too pricey, so the company I work for could cover a hundred percent of the expenses.

      Excellent professional development option. If you are in search of one, look no further.

      It all started with my dorm friend getting an internship with the Yandex office in Boston. By the time he recommended Practicum to me, I already had my Data Science AAS from Austin Community College and honestly didn't care about the theory at all. I also started working for one of the smaller supermarket chains here in Texas. So the main appeal of the training were hands-on projects of the course. I hoped they would enhance my portfolio. The fact that all the practical assignments were based on the real stats of "Russian Google" and its most significant projects' seemed really attractive. I wasn't mistaken. I spent eight hundred dollars total for the course. And as an outcome, I now have 15 new projects in my portfolio.

      Obviously, the theory was a bit basic in my particular case, which also saved me a lot of time. But I reckon it is a great start for beginners. The course shows off an impressive array of widgets and gadgets and gives much practice with tools that are very useful in the day by day of a data scientist.

      I had a great experience, and the outcome far exceeded my expectations.

      Hello, and thanks to Yandex Practicum for showing me the world of limitless possibilities. I never was a computer geek, so limiting my experience to just playing video games was kind of a natural thing to do until I took my shot and signed up for your Web Development courses. First week was tough, but as I got a general understanding of HTML, started putting efforts into homework, tests and new projects - I got captivated. Practicum is a very user-friendly project, both in its interface and approach to teaching. I’m loving the team here, and hoping to stick by your side throughout my journey as a newly made web developer.

I was scrambling, looking for solutions - my job interview was coming up in two months, and I was walking through the wilderness, just getting started with Data Analysis. Since then I have passed the introductory course and scored 89/100 on my job interview test, all kudos to Practicum for a very well organized course. I knew I could count on it to at least help me get a perspective on this subject pretty fast.

      I think this is the best source for Data/Business Analysts who would like to learn how to use SQL for analyzing data sets. They take you step-by-step through the learning process and engage you with practical assignments to review and test your understanding of what you've learned. This course takes up a lot of time, which is great because it means you are learning a lot!

      The most outstanding thing is that you can chat with mentors, and they are very supportive when commenting on your work and are accessible via the learning platform chat. You can also chat with the learners' community via Slack, which was very stress relieving for me at times.

      I recommend this course, although the exercises require more time than the average online course. But if you take it seriously and complete it on your own, you'll learn a lot to apply it at work. Excellent course for big data and playing with real (anonymized) data.

      The first time I tried web development, I took the old-school approach: a thick heavy book on HTML and CSS. I read everything thoroughly, doing every single exercise in the book, but by the time I finished it I still wasn’t capable of putting together a working website. My knowledge wasn’t practical or systematic, and Yandex Practicum gave me just that. I was skeptical at first, but I thought I’d give the online courses a try, and if I were to compare it to a book, it’s a much better approach to learning. The way your course is structured makes sure you constantly engage with your mentors and classmates who are always there to help when something doesn’t make sense, which makes the course highly interactive. HTML, CSS, and especially Java are taught in a much more exciting manner, excluding all the unnecessary theory that I thought should be left out when I was reading the book. Overall, it has helped me fill up my weak spots and really step it up, so shoutout to Yandex for making a very helpful and polished educational platform.
