Software Development

Edge Tech Academy has created a unique Software Development Program that teaches real-world programming skills including Java, JavaScript, and C# core languages, HTML5, CSS, and Angular front-end, Microsoft SQL, MongoDB, and MySQL databases, and Jade, ASP.NET, and Spring Boot frameworks.

Our program is a 21st century software curriculum that prepares students for their first professional software development position.  We take a holistic approach to programming: database design, programming languages, and frameworks that combine to make complete functioning software.

Our Software Development program is approximately 8 months (4 hours per day, 5 days per week) and equips students with a portfolio of project and development examples, as well as a resume that stands out, to share with potential employers during interviews. Graduates will be ready to demonstrate ready-to-work skills, with minimal lag time to begin contributing to the employer's development efforts.
