This course is for any developer or beginner that have little or no knowledge about computer programming. In this class we will prepare you with fundamental know-how that you can use to create design and implement higher quality software and avoid catastrophic defects.
We have selected the most useful topics every developer should know about. First 4 articles are mandatory. Next articles between number 5 and 10 are more advanced but required for Sage-Code certified developers. Last articles after 10 are optional, only for system engineers and computer enthusiasts.

Software will not be possible without hardware. This may be your workstation, personal computer, server or mobile device. A good Software Engineer must be familiar with all programable devices. We have put together several high level topics for getting yourself familiar with the hardware. Before taking our quiz, make sure you read this article:
You can take this quiz only once. After first try, you can request support on Discord. An instructor can review your answers and reset your score so you can try this exam a second time. If you fail a second time we assume you have not follow the class properly so you should repeat the class.
We have set-up an Open Source project for this course. You can contribute on our Discussions on GitHub. We appreciate any reported issue to improve our tutorials. You can suggest new topics and provide links to resources that could bee useful to study. Your help is appreciated!
