This class is for non-techies who want to hire developers or have to interact with technologists on a day-to-day basis. Students will learn basic tech terminology so that they no longer feel at a disadvantage when speaking with developers. The instructor will provide students with a clear understanding of the concepts that make today's technology. Students will also be given an opportunity to ask the instructor about specific concepts they are struggling with.

Student Takeaways:

  • A clear understanding of the stages of development
  • An overview of the must know tech terms used today- Cloud, Agile, Scrum, SQL, Ruby
  • The difference between front-end and back-end
  • Tips on how to effectively communicate with developers
