Understand and explain Design Thinking and its benefits to peers and stakeholders
Apply Design Thinking techniques into their design and development process
Share design thinking tools and methodology with peers
Recognise opportunities to use Design Thinking to solve challenges and improve products at work
Day 3 – Data Driven Decision Making
Data is the glue in modern technology solutions –understanding how it used, its potential and value is critical to any new technologist think about what they can achieve to deliver better services for business and individuals.
In this session we will introduce some of the building blocks of contemporary data and have the learners understand how close and open data link together. We will allow learners to put concepts into action through gamified learning
By being able to understand sources, shapes and opportunities to use Data, through gamified learning they will learn about the data landscape and how organisations use Open/closed data to drive business success.
Delegates will learn:
How to demystify the language of Data and how to communicate its impact to the organisation
What is Data Driven Decision Making and how organisational culture delivers it
Use data and creating hypothesis to test under the Lean Startup Methodology
Create effective human driven metrics
Day 4 – Learn to Code
This module will introduce learners to coding (aka programming, software development) and will take them through the basics in an engaging and supportive environment.
Learners will build their first application and experience how code works, see it in action and understand the fundamentals.
Day 5 – Azure Fundamentals
This day will provide you with a foundational level knowledge of cloud services and how those services are provided with Microsoft Azure.
Understand general cloud computing concepts
Understand core services available with Microsoft Azure
