On-Demand apps bring what you need to your door. Uber Eats and Skip the dishes have seen incredible success. These apps focus on convenience, and make going out to eat that much easier. Families with picky eaters, or allergies have the ability to get food for everyone, without having to make multiple trips. While this convenience comes at a cost of a few dollars, convenience is worth so much more. Additionally, the pandemic hindered indoor dining, and so the growth and usage of food delivery apps doubled.
Staying agile in software development practices transforms the conventional, linear development timeline into a circular loop to constantly evaluate, design, construct and monitor. Many large tech companies are beginning to implement agile methodologies to save time and money in their software development. By taking small pieces of a project, and developing each one in a feedback loop cycle, developers are able to catch bugs and other issues earlier, which means that less time is spent identifying bugs and deployment with errors is avoided.
Developers that are graduating from any computer science program or coding bootcamp should be aware of Agile methodologies and how they are implemented into software development, however many programs miss this critical piece of knowledge. Launchpad by Vog fixes that.
Launchpad by Vog takes developers from a junior developer level to an intermediate level, getting any student ready to work at any company. We guide students to build upon their coding knowledge with business and project management acumen that is missed in most bootcamps and post secondary programs, which allow them to grow as developers. Our program is designed to place students with real world projects, to allow them implement the agile concepts we have taught them in the classroom. This combination of theory and practice allows for students to fully embrace the concepts, and learn faster in Launchpad.
