Description

The course is an introduction to the complexity waiting for a beginner in the software industry. No certifications or silver bullets exist to a long and fulfilling software career. Instead, the course provides a brief overview of the industry and processes from an experienced engineer’s perspective.

The main goal of the course is to make the aspirants aware of the big picture before they get caught up in confusing job descriptions. A prosperous career cannot be purchased or fast-tracked. It needs daily nurturing via habits and coherent knowledge.
