Last week, Udacity launched the newest generation of two of our longest running and most popular Nanodegree programs: the Full Stack and Front End Web Developer Nanodegree programs. The latest versions of these Nanodegree programs include new instructors, brand new projects, and a complete technology refresh to ensure students continue to learn essential web development skills with cutting-edge tools.
Since these programs first launched almost five years ago, over 27,000 students have used Udacity’s web development curriculum and projects to power their careers. Hear directly from them how these Nanodegree programs helped our students reach their career goals:

The word “study” often brings about memories of dusty books, handfuls of hastily scribbled notes, and caffeinated sleepless nights cramming for a test. Fortunately, these are just the results of poor study habits and can be avoided.
