Team Lift Off
During stage one, you’ll get to know the team of students joining you at MCS, what your days will look like, and a birds-eye perspective on how incremental programming works.
When you’re done with Week One, you’ll have a solid understanding of programming from its highest levels and be able to make real changes to code (it’s ok to use your cheat sheet!).
This will be your programming foundation.
Things start to heat up during stage four. You and a partner will program a project from scratch using what you have learned.
You and your partner will be given a real problem Montana businesses face that software can solve – carrying responsibility for both delivering the product and communicating with the client.
Nobody will ever give you exact specs for their software – so you’ll learn how to ask the right questions, which will enable you to build the right product.
Stage five has, as a capstone assignment, you will be placed into teams tasked with creating your own web apps. It’s up to you and your team to brainstorm what this app will do, how will it function, and who will it help – then build it.
This is where you will become truly valuable to an employer. You will learn how to put it all together as a team-oriented, full stack developer capable of seeing issues globally and diving deep to fix any bugs.
