Event Details

How much truth do you find in the statement "Speaking with developers is only slightly more difficult than speaking with the dead"? If you want to be part of the teams that are currently building our digital world, you need to be able to understand the world of development - from the language they speak, to what they need to get the job done and what you should get from them.

Through a combination of lecture and Q&A, this beginners level class will introduce students to:

  • An introduction to the terminology used today: Cloud, Agile, Scrum, SQL, Ruby, UX, TDD, XP, OO, SEO, LAMP.
  • What is the difference between front-end and back-end?
  • What are the stages of development?- What software tools are used?
  • What's inside the code?
  • What do developers need to do their job well?

With this course, you'll understand the terminology used by many digital developers and have a basic understanding of the world of development. Using what you've learned, you'll be able to continue to discover the fascinating world of digital development.

Steven Ringo is Director of Dynamic Clarity, a small Sydney-based development shop specialising in developing and managing web and mobile applications.
