Enrollment opens today for Udacity's latest nanodegree. If you want to get hired as a Senior Web Developer, join the first cohort of students to follow a curriculum devised in conjunction with Google.

The Senior Web Developer Nanodegree was announced at last month's Chrome Developer Summit. It can be seen as a follow-on to Udacity's very first Nanodegree, Front-End Web Developer.




The summary of the program which is expected to require 9-12 months if you devote 10 hours per week to it states: 

Leaping off from where our Front-End Web Developer Nanodegree program culminates, this program is expressly designed to afford intermediate developers the opportunity to build on existing front-end skills and master the newest and most innovative technologies available. If you’re a developer with experience in HTML, CSS and JavaScript—or a graduate of our Front-End Developer program!—and are focused on securing a Senior Web Developer position, this curriculum path will ensure you’re supremely well-prepared to achieve your career objectives.

Built in close partnership with Google, the Senior Web Developer Nanodegree program emphasizes teaching the frameworks, techniques, and tools that make the development of progressive web applications possible. Your projects will be focused on using some of the newest features available, such as Promises, Service Worker, and device-level access APIs designed to develop Progressive Web Applications. Ultimately, graduates will emerge ready not only to fill important roles, but to drive innovation and lead technology strategy. 

Udacity's outcome-based approach means that graduates emerge with a portfolio of projects that highlight their skills, experience, and ability to create great user experiences. Moreover all of it is part of a student's profile, and available to Udacity's hiring partners.

It is this aspect of the Udacity nanodegree progam that motivates students to pay the $200 per month subscription. Knowing that you can get 50% of your tuition back if you graduate within 12 months is also a good spur to buckling down and completing the proram within this time frame.
