Welcome to Apex's Developer Day!

Thank you for joining us as we celebrate the graduation of our first Dallas cohort! We’re so proud of all that they have achieved over the last 5 months. Since opening the doors of our new Dallas campus on February 24th, they’ve gained hands-on experience in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Java, Test-Driven Development, MySQL, and Spring. They put all of these skills to use to develop their capstone project – a full-stack web application that you’ll get to see today. As you watch, you can also learn more about each grad by clicking their name to visit their Alumni Portal profile!

Social Code

Although there is a proliferation of resources to learn how to code online, nothing can replace the human element of learning alongside others. Social Code was created so that the Codeup community could have a convenient place to come together and easily schedule video chats with others to learn and collaborate between Codeup campuses. Social Code is a full-stack application created using the MVC design pattern and is built with Spring Boot, Hibernate, Thymeleaf, Java, JQuery, Javascript, CSS, and HTML.


GigMatch is a full-stack web application that operates as a platform for connections between musicians and venues in real time across multiple cities.

Gigmatch was built using the Filestack API for uploading images, Mapbox API for geolocation of users, as well as Java, SpringBoot, MySQL, CSS, HTML, Javascript, jQuery and Bootstrap.
