This program delves into the foundations of structured programming with a focus on the principles of the Java and Python programming languages. Having a grasp of these fundamental programming languages is essential for any career trajectory as a software developer. Clients will also become familiar with other important aspects of the job including Agile Software Development, Database Management Systems, and Data Structures and Algorithms. In total, the Software Development Path lasts 23 weeks and is comprised of three different modules. Modules-1 and Module-2 are 7 weeks each and Module-3 is 9 weeks. There will be two days per week of instruction for three hours per class. Need additional help? We offer two-hour office hours each week where the instructor is available to help with any questions you may have. In addition, clients can expect to dedicate around 6 to 8 hours each week studying the topics covered during the week at their own pace.
This 7-week module introduces clients to the Python programing language.
This course introduces students to the fundamentals of structured programming and to the procedural aspects of the Python programming language. Students will create programs to demonstrate the topics of program control, functions, strings, arrays, and file I/O. An appropriate IDE (Integrated Development Environment) will be used as the primary development tools. Emphasis will be placed on the creation of platform-independent applications in order to allow students to become familiar with the core features of the Python programming language.

This 9-week module introduces clients to Data Structures, Database Management Systems, and Agile Software Development.
This component of Module-3 covers the development and use of data structures in computer science and object-oriented software development. Students will apply the programming knowledge acquired in previous two modules to develop more complex projects. In addition to the data structures that the students learned in their previous programming courses, they will learn other data structures including linked lists, queues, stacks, and others.
In this component of Module-3, clients will learn database concepts, theory, design principles using the industry-standard databases including Structures Query Language (SQL). This component of Module-3 introduces clients to database environment, data modeling with emphasis on relational query languages.
In this component of Module-3, clients will gain experience in agile software development. This component addresses what agile methods are, how they are implemented and their impact on software development. Clients will learn various aspects of Agile including, continuous delivery, extreme programming, Scrum, Agile project management, etc.
