Live Project

Pre-requisites Project Management
Duration 10 days

Every student is given the opportunity to partake in an exercise which involves a real world software development project. Our live projects allow a student to put the programming skills they learn to use on practical assignments that mirror actual software development projects one could run across on a real contract. This will be an element of your resume.

  • Working with a team
  • Daily Stand-ups
  • Retrospective and Sprint Review
  • Working in Team Foundation Server
  • Checking in and pushing your code daily
  • And more...

"Participating in the Live Project was an invaluable learning experience. It has taught me what it’s really like to think and work like a software developer. This experience has helped me to gain a sense of what it may be like to work in a real live software development environment. In this Live Project, I had the opportunity to create raw code that is being used in an actual client’s website. My responsibility was to work with Handlebars.js, a compiler that takes any HTML and Handlebars expression and implements them to a JavaScript function. To be quite frank, I’m still a little unsure of how it completely works. But the important aspect that I drew from this experience is that before the Live Project, I’d never even heard of handlebars.js. But now I can create a webpage that utilizes handlebars.js to a certain degree. This may not seem like much to some with more experience, but to me this is paramount.

My greatest computer skill before coming to the Tech Academy was my ability to turn on the computer, which at times I wasn’t very good at that either. I entered the Tech Academy with absolutely no prior computer coding experience. The advances I’ve made through the different courses and completing the Live Project, for me have been huge. I now possess a fundamental ground work of skills that I can use and apply to various aspects of computer programming/development. For that I am very grateful. I can only improve from here!" - Tony T.

  • NOTE FOR REMOTE STUDENTS: For the Live Project, since you are studying from home, you will be assigned a Live Project from the Live Project In-Charge (I/C).

The purpose of the Live Project is to involve the student in a simulated work environment which results in a product(s) they can list on their resume. Whether done locally or remotely, the student should create something that can be included on their resume as experience.
