Course Syllabus




Our courses are designed to help you learn programming skills through practice. Here are the practical projects you'll complete with the help of a mentor as part of this course:



SECTION 1

Sharpening Your Mind

Start understanding the C-Sharp language, and how we can use its power for ourselves. We'll learn how to think like a programmer, figuring out how to store information and use it to add some flexibility to how our code works. Alongside this, we'll also be finding out how to handle the situations where our code doesn't quite work out as expected.

SECTION 2

Data for Thought

We'll begin to see how we can make our programs start making their own basic decisions based on data and logic. But programming isn't just boredom and work, especially here where we figure out how to start making our own simple games through the power of C-Sharp;.

Post graduation career support
A MicroDegree is a innovative new concept which goes beyond simply taking an online course. This certification is designed to get you the skills that employers believe are integral to get a job in software development. It focuses on learning by doing, and is typically comprised of 8 to 15 practical programming projects with hundreds of additional programming exercises and course content to support the skills needed to complete these projects.

All our MicroDegrees connect you with a 1:1 mentor, to which your practical programming projects are submitted for feedback. Your mentor works with you in real time to improve your code, solve programming exercises, and craft your learning path to match your intended career. Mentor support is available 24/7 online with face-to-face support offered in selected areas.





Prerequisites and Requirements


General

- Motivation and dedication to learn, and apply your mind to more complex tasks in programming.

- Proficiency in both written and spoken English

Technical Proficiencies

- Basic computer skills, such as sending emails, file navigation, saving files and opening files. 

- Note that this MicroDegree is suitable for beginner-level programmers, since it covers introductory content for each concept. 

Equipment and Technologies

- Access to a computer and a broadband internet connection*

- Ability to run a text editor such as Notepad++ or an IDE such as Visual Studio or CodeBlocks, though we will provide you with all installation files

- An email address where course content and other important course information can be delivered.

*The use of Dropbox means you’re not required to be always online while taking this MicroDegree. Even if you don’t have internet - perhaps due to some loadshedding - you can still access your Dropbox folder and continue to edit/update files. As soon as you have internet again, your Dropbox will sync with your trainer and he or she will see your changes. Dropbox and our own website is also available on everything from Blackberry to Apple tablets - so you will be able to learn while on the move.
