Learn to write clean, well-tested, advanced C# code using industry-standard software engineering patterns and Microsoft’s new ASP.NET Core framework.

You will use Visual Studio Community Edition to create ASP.NET MVC Core applications and work with Azure to deploy applications onto a live server within the cloud. The course focuses on fundamental computer science concepts like object-oriented programming, advanced data structures and algorithms, and the foundations of Microsoft’s ASP.NET Core Framework. Students will progressively build projects from start to finish following industry best practices and standard agile methodology.

This course includes a career coaching curriculum to get you ready for your job search, plus job search assistance after graduation. The course totals 400 hours, including lectures, lab, coworking, and collaborative projects.


By the end of this course, you will:

  • Build and contribute to web applications, using an architecture and framework that promotes maintainability, scalability, and collaboration. These skills will be fully demonstrated during project weeks through their team development of a prototype, adhering to industry best practices and patterns.
  • Apply and learn about the agile methodology by writing user stories, estimating project hours, and meeting deadlines through pre-set milestones within multiple sprints. These skills will be fully demonstrated through an iterative project in the second half of the course as students work with a partner as they plan and build towards a final deliverable.
  • Apply Computer Science fundamentals when analyzing the trade-offs between competing solutions when choosing data structures and algorithms, through daily whiteboard challenges to be prepared for technical interviews.
  • Participate in a series of career development workshops to build a network, establish a clean online presence, polish a resume, and establish other professional skills.
  • Follow industry-standard collaborative development practices to completing a large project in week-long sprints, utilizing agile techniques such as user story construction, proper git-flow with a Kanban board, peer reviews, and individual retrospectives.
  • Be ready to conduct a successful job search and obtain a job as a .NET, Full-Stack or Front-End Web Developer.


Once you are accepted into the course, please complete the Code 401 Prework. This important Prework makes up a part of your 401 grades!

Career Development Curriculum

  • Two full days of Code 401 are dedicated to workshops and presentations that teach students the skills they’ll need for their job search, such as personal branding techniques, effective networking practices, how to create an attractive resume, mastering personal and technical interviews, job search best practices, and more.
  • Additionally, during each Project Week, students present projects that will go into their professional portfolio. Learn More »

Computer & Material Requirements

Students are required to bring their own laptop with plenty of free space on the hard drive. The course pre-work will have specific instructions for configuring your computer to be ready for the first day of class. By the first day of class, students will need:

Learn with Stacked Modules

Concepts in each of our courses are taught using stacked modules, where a new concept is introduced in each class session, building upon what came before it. This is a challenging style that requires persistence, practice, and collaboration, but allows more concepts to be introduced over the length of the course. This method helps students learn and retain more information in a short period of time. Learn more about stacked modules »

Homework Policy

DeltaV Code School provides only a pass/fail transcript and does not assign letter grades to each student. However, to monitor student progress throughout each program, DeltaV Code School uses a point-based grading system that is introduced to the students on the first day of each program. In order to pass the class, students must attain at least 90% of available points. For more information, see Grading System and Disciplinary Action For Low Grades.


Punctuality, participation in discussions, completion of assignments, and demonstration of professional courtesy to others are required. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of every class. Passing requires at least 90% attendance. Students should always contact the instructors ahead of time if they are unable to attend all or part of a class session.
