“The Software Development Academy is different from traditional undergraduate studies in Computer Science. For example, SDA includes a team project which is larger and more complex than projects that college or university students typically complete during their studies.
Teacher: Philipp Haller, Assistant Professor of Computer Science at KTH

”Software Development Academy provided me a sound foundation in object-oriented programming. I was taught how to develop using architectural and design patterns. Additionally, I was able to practice plenty of git and GitHub within a team, which was absolutely essential in my first developer job.
