Junior Developer Growth

We’re always seeking to provide our code students with relentlessly relevant experiences. We’ve conducted research on what others are saying about what junior developers need to compete in the job market, but we haven’t heard from you!

Please take a moment to fill out the following form on skills (hard and soft) that junior developers need, a little information about you, and your interest in assisting the Midland University Code Academy.

Code Skills Assessment

This survey is meant to identify what specific skills should be taught to students to best enable them to enter the job market and compete for Junior Programmer positions. We're focusing on two separate categories of skills: hard skills (programming related) and soft skills (not specifically coding related). Our goal is to better understand industry needs to better equip students with relevant skills and meet market demand.
  • Hard Skills

    Below is a list of hard, technical skills that junior programmers can be equipped with. Please rate the skill on a scale from 1-5 with 1 being "Least important" and 5 being "Most important"
  • Soft Skills

    Below are a list of soft, non-technical skills that junior programmers can be equipped with. Please rate the skill on a scale from 1-5 with 1 being "Least important" and 5 being "Most important"
  • Code Academy Network

    The Midland University Code Academy can always use teachers, mentors, guest speakers, or projects to help advance the student experience and further prepare students for the job market.
