    Overview
    Thinkful offer self-paced courses covering HTML, CSS, Javascript, Design Fundamentals, AJAX, UX, JSON, Jquery & Github via online articles, e-books, videos, coding challenges, and assignments. Lesson content is project driven, with all concepts being taught within the context of a particular project and students learning as they build. Courses run for 3 to 6 months depending on the learner's time commitments with an estimated weekly workload of 10-20 hours. Students can choose between 4 different learning tracks, including Frontend Web Development, Frontend in Angular JS, Web development Career Path or Frontend Worshops. Lessons can be anything from 1 to 15 hours long and conclude with an assignment which is “shared” with other students for further guidance and feedback.
