ACS 4912 Spring Intensive 2 (INT 2.3)

Intensive courses are hands on, immersive experiences designed to give students time to apply their skills to building original products (website or apps) and practice software engineering skills. The course is a week and a half of coding all day with daily check ins and feedback from instructors on progress, short instructional session on key concepts, and ongoing support from instructors and classmates. In Spring Intensive 2, students are given the role of Product Manager or lead engineer on a team of 4 engineers and learn how to lead a team while creating a software product that solves a real world problem. Key concepts include advanced topics in collaboration, peer feedback and team leadership. The Spring Intensive ends with a Demo Night in which students pitch their products to dozens of industry contacts, recruiters, and Make School partners. Students will be deep in the hiring process at this time, and post intensive work days include applying for employment at companies pitched to during Demo night.
