Avg Rating: ( 0 reviews )

Craftsmanship Academy is a model program for training future software craftsmen. The Academy is founded on the belief that the best way to become a software craftsman is to learn from recognized software craftsmen who have proven their ability to train apprentices. Students of the Academy are immersed in a real software studio in Holly Springs, NC. The Academy is broken into three phases: skills immersion, apprenticeship, and residency. During skills immersion, students will learn test-driven development of object-oriented programming, web application development using Ruby, Rails, HTML, SASS, JavaScript, SQL, no-SQL, mobile development for iOS, data structures, design patterns, agile software development, and much more. Students who successfully complete the skills immersion matriculate to a 3-6 month apprenticeship developing real world projects under the supervision of master craftsmen. Finally, those who successfully complete the Apprenticeship phase will matriculate into a 3-9 month residency at RoleModel. Successful completion of the course is expected to end in full-time placement at RoleModel or referrals to other Craftsmanship-minded shops. The intent of Craftsmanship Academy is not to get a certificate, but to begin and guide the journey of Software Craftsmanship; as such, the school is highly selective and scholarships are available to the right candidate(s). Successful participants in the program will have gained everything he or she needs to begin a a successful Software Craftsmanship journey.
