KCAL programming courses are designed to provide students with an opportunity to continue their education and gain experience in the world of programming. Students learn and practice Agile management techniques using the Scrum framework. In Computer Programming I and II students choose an area of focus in advanced programming, mobile app development, or video game design. By the end of the course students will have a working understanding of their area of concentration and will be prepared for either the practicum or real world experience.
