The Software Development Foundation program explores the “How to” of translating business rules into algorithms and what happens when the rules change. The course is designed to mimic a development team working and communicating effectively in a constantly changing environment. Learn how a team composed of business analysts, developers, testers, database analysts, etc., all coordinate and speak the same language.

After completing this class, the student can participate in a full development lifecycle. This will include understanding and contributing to all rituals and processes of Agile and producing artifacts such as product backlog, burndown chart, and solution design (business flow diagrams, object design, testing design, etc.) along with usable code.

Students in this program will have the opportunity to showcase their abilities to local industry representatives. What a great way to make a first impression on the Tech Scene in the Cape Fear Region!
