Apply all the skills you have learned to work through the challenging and rewarding task of designing a full-stack system.

Covered topics:

  • Computer Science


In this project course^ the final course in the Software Development MicroMasters program^ you will learn how to input^ manipulate^ and return data with a modern web development stack. Using TypeScript and Node^ you will manipulate large amounts of information using a domain-specific querying language. Backend^ REST^ and front-end technologies will be required to successfully complete the project. In teams^ students will work through the project in several sprints. In each sprint^ students will produce a deliverable that is evaluated using an automated test suite. The feedback you will receive from this suite will be limited. To succeed at the project you will need to create your own private test suite to further validate each deliverable. By working through such a large-scale development project^ you will learn technical development skills^ and gain experience with how teams develop software in the industry. This is the largest project in the Software Development MicroMasters program. Verified learners will have access to greatly increased staff coaching to help complete the project.
