Why Become a Mid-Level Software Engineer?

Man learning how to code

High Demand

There is a huge demand for developers and engineers who not only have existing experience but have the skills it takes to climb the ladder. This translates to great opportunities and a high career ceiling that has the potential to lead to high career earnings long term.

Flexible Career Path

Knowing software development, including frontend development and backend development, and a deeper understanding of advanced concepts means opening the doors to a flexible career path in which you can work in person or remote for startups, agencies, or large corporations. The more experience you gain the more growth and employment opportunities that will appear.

Creative Flexibility

The beauty of knowing multiple aspects of development is having the creative flexibility to transition to different parts of a project. This keeps the job enjoyable while also ensuring your value to a company.

What You Will Learn in the Curriculum

The Mid-Level Software Engineer Flex program continues where you left off with your junior-level studies. In order for junior developers or junior software engineers to take the jump from junior-level to mid-level they need to gain a deeper understanding of concepts and learn specific additional skills that can be combined with their experience as a Software Engineer.

Data Structures & Algorithms

Performance is important when building any application. Students will learn the inner workings of data structures and when to use one data structure versus another based on a given scenario. Students will also learn common algorithms, the tradeoffs of each algorithm, runtimes, limitations, and implementation strategies of different algorithms.

The ability to increase the efficiency of an algorithm in terms of time taken (time complexity) and memory used (space complexity), and describe it in terms of Big-O notation, has quickly become standard practice among mid-level developers.


Databases are essential to modern development as a place to store and retrieve data for applications. Students will learn database architecture, queries, and performance benefits of relational (i.e. MySQL) and non-relational databases (i.e. MongoDB).

Students also will learn how to use cloud database services for data storage, security, efficiency, and performance.

Software Design & Architecture

Students will get a solid understanding of quality software design and architecture to ensure applications remain extensible, scalable, and maintainable. This will be achieved through object-oriented programming best practices, functional programming best practices, design patterns, architectural patterns, client-server relationship and services.

Students will also learn design pattern best practices, when to implement certain design patterns, and how to ensure code remains well designed

OS & Distributed Computing

Memory management, processes, threads, synchronization, and multithreading are a few areas that can boost code performance when done correctly. Understanding how to implement these concepts along with a good knowledge of distributing computing systems will set any mid-level developer apart.

App Security

Protection from malicious attacks needs to be on the mind of any developer constructing an application. In this section of the course, students will learn software security through topics such as injection, encryption, and cryptography.

It is equally as important to have experience with authentication and authorization, which involves developers securely and persistently logging users in and out. Utilizing modern JavaScript technologies, students will build an authentication system and increase knowledge in sessions and tokens.


It is valuable for developers to take part in the quality assurance process, which makes testing an integral part of the software development life cycle. In this section, students will learn to plan, document, and perform software testing on applications to ensure that only well-tested code makes it to production.

The different testing will include unit testing, integration testing, end-to-end testing, test automation, and test-driven development using tools such as Selenium, Storybook, Jest, and Postman.

Technical Documentation

Students will utilize tools such as Atlassian Confluence and GitHub to write technical documentation. Using the agile approach, students will learn when it is appropriate to produce technical documentation to move the software development process forward. They also will learn about the two main categories of technical documentation: product documentation and process documentation.

The product documentation will involve all system documentation and user documentation. The process documentation will involve any documents that are needed for the planning and organization of the software development process.

Software Development Lifecycle

One of the most important parts about being a mid-level developer is experiencing the entire software development life cycle. This part of the course will go through the necessary stages to bring an application to life, with the stages including research and planning, analysis, design, development, implementation, testing, documentation, deployment, and maintenance.

The experience of the development life cycle will occur over a six-week group final project in which every member of the team will gain knowledge and familiarity by taking part in the different stages.

Machine Learning

Machine learning and artifical intelligence continues to grow in popularity and in importance for developers who want to grow their skill set. It's equally important to understand the theory behind machine learning as it is to get hands-on experience.

In this module, students will learn machine learning concepts, machine learning best practices, deep learning techniques, deeper understanding of ML libraries, computer vision, natural language processing, and how to work with existing AI tools.

The devCodeCamp Difference

Instructor Support

Any student taking the self-paced program will receive individualized attention from the full-time experienced instructional staff. Instructors will be available to answer your questions daily, provide guidance and feedback on your project work, meet with you during optional office hours, provide optional 1.5 hours per week of live lecture and demo, and be your support system through this exciting journey.


Our experienced educators, developers, and content creators combined to build a curriculum that is loaded with learning materials designed to teach modern technologies and equip you with relevant skills you need to get a job as a developer. What we teach in the virtual classroom is what you will see in the world of professional development.

Project Based Learning

The best way to gain the skills you need to be job ready is through hands-on experience. You will put together a portfolio of real-world projects that will showcase you have what it takes to get hired. All graded projects will receive recorded instructor video feedback, so that you know what you did well, what areas you need to improve, and gain a better understanding of the code.

Capstone Project

Each student’s final project is an individual capstone in which you bring an idea you have for an app to life in the form of a fully functioning software application. It is an opportunity to get more familiar with the tools you have learned, push yourself to great heights, implement good design and best practices, and showcase your abilities to be a professional developer.

Career Support

Our goals are the exact same as your goals, which is to help you launch a career as a Mid-Level Software Engineer. Learn how to navigate the industry, create a resume, create a LinkedIn profile, how to prepare for interviews, and how to go about finding job opportunities by utilizing our video resources and communicating with our career coaches via Slack.
