I think the course is taught in such a way that everything that is new is easy to understand and we can follow along, but if you've covered it before it's still really interesting

I feel like I belong to an awesome community full of intelligent people and everyone is so collaborative and helpful. If you ever get stuck everyone is so willing to help out

What I found most interesting is understanding that you don't actually need to know everything, you just need to know how it works. You don't need to re-invent the wheel.

My degree, in the largest sense, was problem solving. Software engineering and software development is putting that skill of problem solving and critical thinking into effect.

The biggest outcome from this program is not just about coding. You have lots of opportunities to work with lots of similar, like-minded people in these group projects where you're creating code that actually contributes to something.
