Program Description

This program will teach you how to better work in teams, to find and fix errors, to write software that not only everyone can use but that everyone will enjoy using, and ensure their codebase against disaster.

Good software programmers know how to write code that works. Great software programmers know how to write well-documented, solidly-designed code written for an international and diverse audience that is backed up in a repository on a regular basis – and that also works. By writing code in this way, programmers are set up to better work in teams, to find and fix errors more quickly, to write software that not only everyone can use but that everyone will enjoy using, and ensure their codebase against disaster.

This Professional Certificate program will teach you all these things: from how to comment code and work with source control to writing software so it can be localized (prepared for languages and locales beyond the one it's written in).

The courses are taught by leaders in their respective fields and you’ll learn in the context of real-world projects. Regular assessments will help you keep track of your learning progress and help you lock in concepts. This course is not only for programmers but for anyone who works with software or related fields. This Certificate Program will take your software skills to the next level by teaching you the finer points of writing professional software.

This program is part of the Microsoft Professional Program in Entry-Level Software Development.
