CodePath is excited to present this free, 8-week, hands-on course for college Freshmen and Sophomores. Part entrepreneurship, part design, and part coding, the course will help you fall in love with technology and computer science. Learn the fundamentals of building new mobile apps including product planning, defining user stories and designing screen flows, taught by engineers from Silicon Valley.
Intro to Mobile Product Development is an 8-week course designed to expose college freshmen and sophomore students to the possibilities in a career in technology. Students will learn how to conduct product planning sessions, design basic wireframes/prototypes and write product specs to create an MVP (minimum viable product). Students will also get to build a mobile application of their own.
After taking this course, students will have a better understanding of how tech teams and entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley build software products and services, an enhanced portfolio to show future employers, and a network of like-minded peers and professionals across the US. Many of our students proceed onward to take our more advanced iOS and Android mobile development courses, or apply the knowledge they gain in this course to other concentrations.
Build a mobile product or service from the ground up
Core coding concepts used to build simple iOS or Android apps
Product planning activities such as brainstorming, schema design, and user stories
Using version control (Git and Github) to store and collaborate on code
Gain a preview of real-world software engineering roles and challenges
Fireside Q&A chats and info sessions with professional software engineers from companies such as Slack, Pinterest, and Facebook
Learn what it’s like in the day-to-day of different roles in tech
How you can be part of an industry that is changing the world and contributing to advancements in many areas of life
Freshmen and Sophomores interested in majoring or minoring in Computer Science or other forms of Computing or STEAM subjects
Students who have already taken an Intro to CS course or know the basics of a programming language (e.g. for loops, if statements)
Students who are currently enrolled in a 2-year or 4-year college/university in the US
Students who can commit to 2 hours of online classes every Saturday during the 8 weeks of the course
How to Apply
The application is a 2-step process:
Fill out a 10-15 minute questionnaire about your previous exposure to coding, your interest in a career in tech, and general information about you as a person.
Applicants will then set up their working environment as pre-work for the course. This will take approximately 1-2 hours, and applicants who do not complete this step will not be admitted to the course.
