As a result, C developers tend to develop an in-depth understanding of the computer and its operating system and how applications interact with them. Thanks to this more profound knowledge, it’s usually easier for a C developer to learn other languages as opposed to the other way around.
After completing the foundations, you will pick your individual mix of projects in order to specialise. Each project in the curriculum has been designed to learn a particular aspect of programming. By completing projects and mastering your skills, you will develop your own unique competences and you will be prepared for diverse challenges and creative opportunities, be it in a role of a developer, CTO, cybersecurity specialist, project manager, or anything you’d like to be!
All students share the same starting point on the curriculum map. From there you have the freedom to choose your own path and pace and later your specializations.
