GOLD BADGE: Software Development I

Foundation is designed to prepare students with the technical and accelerated learning building blocks to successfully complete Software Development (SD) II and III. In SD I we focus on the basics of coding, including exposure to two programming languages, and building confidence. Students collaborate to produce functioning applications. Students may not always understand the “why” behind the applications. The “why” skills are further developed in SD II and SD III. Students will finish by coding a solo project, ready for the Core II. Students will have an opportunity to obtain an industry-recognized CIW certificate at no additional cost.
