Alumni Story: From Underwear Designer to Web Designer

Front-End Web Development New York student

Originally trained as a fashion designer, Lauren Chilcote (Front-End Web Development, New York) found herself in a job as surprising as it is essential: designing underwear at an intimate-apparel company. Eventually, though, she found the role monotonous, and wanted more from her career than creating the world’s undies. 

For fun, Lauren had taught herself the basics of HTML and CSS, but she wanted a more structured learning environment to help make coding her career. “In contrast to garment or print design, web apps feel more like living, breathing pieces of work,” she says of her decision to enroll in General Assembly’s Front-End Web Development (FEWD) course at our New York campus. “There's immediate gratification in writing code and viewing your work locally, designing in the browser and debugging. There's a tighter feedback loop that allows you to iterate on your work faster and make improvements.”

With new skills and networking opportunities, she got real-world experience through a freelance gig overhauling a local restaurant’s website, which led to a full-time role as a design technologist at the career advice startup Talent Inc.

“FEWD was the challenge my brain had been craving,” says Lauren, who splits her time between front-end web development and design to help Talent’s clients revamp resumes and get job interviews. “I wanted a change, and GA was the right stepping stone.”

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) give coders aesthetic control over their web creations. When you know how to work with CSS, you can exercise your creativity with front-end elements such as fonts, color, and layout.


Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) forms the backbone of the web. Every page you see online owes its structure and content to this code. When building out the front end of websites and applications, you’ll often start with HTML to outline where various content on your page lives.


A popular resource for JavaScript programmers, jQuery makes it easier to add interactivity to websites and applications. This free, open-source library is full of ready-made code that powers animations, event handling, and more.

Object-Oriented Programming

A programming paradigm in which models (“objects") are given data (“properties”) and functionality ("methods") that allow them to perform various actions. Languages including JavaScript and Ruby are built off of object-oriented programming (OOP) logic.

Responsive Design

An essential consideration in a mobile-powered world, responsive design ensures that the layout and dimensions of websites and applications adjust to the screen size on which they’re viewed — desktop, smartphone, tablet, or otherwise.
