TCE BidStats

NOTE: KIEI-924 or equivalent programming experience is expected.

This course is geared for entrepreneurs and non-programmers who want to build their own web applications and/or manage a software product lifecycle. Students will use HTML, CSS, and the Ruby programming language to build an online product, learning the fundamentals of computer programming and modern web application development along the way.

This class is recommended for students who plan to start their own businesses and want to understand what goes into developing live prototypes and initial versions of their software. By the end of the course, students will be able to build a functional prototype of a typical database-backed web application and deploy it to a production server.

Perhaps more importantly, students will gain an advanced literacy surrounding the ideas that go into building an online product or service, which will allow them to ideate more constructively, converse more effectively with developers, and manage teams more efficiently.

Also covered are agile project management techniques, recommended online management tools, hiring practices, in-house-vs-offshore decisions, and more.

Students will be expected to have Mac, Windows, or Linux computers that they can complete homework and projects on (detailed instructions on setup will be provided to registered students prior to the first day of class).

NOTE: This course overlaps with DSGN 425 and is NOT RECOMMENDED FOR MMM STUDENTS.
