Learning Beyond the Classroom

Your coding career probably didn’t start with a textbook, and it certainly won’t end in a classroom setting. As a professional working with code, your field is constantly changing, and it’s critical to stay current on the latest developments in technologies, emerging languages, and new tools and resources. In this course, we’ll show you how to teach yourself on the job, how to know when to specialize or stay general, where to find resources online, and how to keep up with the craft of coding on the side. Though you may work in sprints, a career as a full-time developer is a marathon.

Strategic and Big-Picture Thinking in the Workplace

Working in the tech industry often means wearing a lot of different hats. Whether you’re hired as a back-end developer, a QA engineer, or a product manager, it will be important for you to be able to take a step back and understand how your role fits into the company’s business as a whole, as well as the underlying market conditions at play. In this training, we’ll explore how you can look at your job, internship, or project from both a personal point of view, as well as how it fits into the bigger picture.

Agile 101 Survey

“Agile Development” is an umbrella term for several iterative and incremental software development methodologies, including Extreme Programming (XP), Scrum, Kanban, Lean Development, and others. In this course, we’ll review the core values and common vision that each of these development methodologies share, review the Agile Manifesto and understand why so many companies are choosing to develop in this way. We’ll understand the most basic concepts of backlogs, and look at a few of the software packages that enable developers working with these methodologies. We will also take a quick look at Waterfall development and discuss some of the reasons that people choose each of these toolsets.
