Module Title Synopsis
Programming Fundamentals This module covers the basics of programming that are transferable to learning any programming languages they encounter in the workplace. Learners will be equipped with the fundamentals of programming before advancing to frontend, backend and mobile development.
Frontend Framework & APIs React JS is a JavaScript component-based framework that has become the most popular framework in the tech industry for building frontend web platforms. In this module, learners will learn the fundamentals of React, the best practices and build a single-page application that consumes APIs for dynamic data representations.
Backend Framework & APIs

Many companies such as Netflix, PayPal and LinkedIn have experienced great performance improvement using Node.js. In this module, learners will learn how to build APIs with Node.js consumable by both web and mobile applications.

Mobile & Full-stack Development

Learners will reuse their knowledge on React JS and apply them to the mobile platform with React Native where they will learn to deconstruct wireframes produced by UX Designers to implement on mobile development. At the end of this module, learners will deploy a mobile app that consumes live APIs.

Relational & NoSQL Databases Learners will be developing software that integrates relational (PostgreSQL)and NoSQL (MongoDB) databases that store structured and unstructured datasets. Unlike the olden days where companies used only relational databases, modern software solutions leverage relational and NoSQL to achieve data accessibility and performance.
Agile & Product Development

Agile development puts software release at a competitive advantage as the business no longer has to wait for months for a software release. Agile seeks to deploy shippable software versions regularly. Learners will be working on projects and assignments in a SCRUM methodology.


Our unique learning approach is based on Active Social Learning, where learners learn hands-on by interacting with peers through synchronous and asynchronous e-learning using the flipped classroom model, real-world portfolio projects, and direct access to our Mentors. The learning system is based on David Kolb's Experiential Learning Model, Honey & Mumford's Learning Styles, and the Learning Pyramid.
