Course Description

Code 102: Intro to Software Development

Course objective:

Students will understand the basic creation of a web page with HTML, CSS, and the programming language JavaScript. They will use instructor guidance, code snippets, textbooks, and online tutorial instructions to build a learning journal and work through code challenges. They will also collaborate with other students to understand the dynamics of being a developer in a professional work environment. They will identify whether a Code 201 course with Code-Fusion is right for them, given their experience throughout the workshop and their impressions gained from working with an instructor.

Occupational outcome:

Preparation for Code 201.
