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.

    Notes & Caveats:

    Graduates who successfully complete our immersion program are employed as apprentices... which is part of the entire package of the Academy.  It is expected that they will go from Apprentice to Resident and Resident to Developer.  At this point their salary will go up significantly.
