What you will learn:
Do you want to have a better grasp of what your developers do? Do you sometimes wish you could understand the challenges your technical teams face? If so, this Programming Fundamental Elective for Non-technical Audiences is for you!
You will learn the core concepts and terminology of programming. You will see a real-life example of these concepts in action through a quick, 15-minute demo of how to build a simple video game to help you understand the fundamentals. You will see how programming actually works and what could go wrong. We will then leverage what you saw in the demo to the problems your technology teams might face.
This Elective is specifically for non-technical business professionals, at all levels, who want to improve their ability to collaborate with technical teams. The intent is not to teach you to code, but you will be provided with resources to do so if you like.
Technology implementation touches every part of an organization these days. After this Elective, you will feel more confident with technology, more comfortable providing your input in technology development projects, and better understand the technical teams' challenges.
