Ladders: Software Development Course
This dynamic and far-reaching course will accelerate budding young developers learning and get them up to speed with industry standards and the range of possible careers within this growing and exciting industry sector. We will be looking at many aspects of software development from web development, to mobile development and through to modern games programming techniques.
On top of the learning we will also be going to visit a variety of successful businesses which will show the participants the range and scope of available positions. It will also demonstrate the sort of skills that will be needed to secure a position of this nature. The course is very much geared towards helping participants prepare for their first role so each person will be helped to develop the skills for the position they would like to pursue. There will also be support to pursue the possibility of starting their own business with, perhaps, an app or website idea.
