The University of British Columbia

Software Development Capstone Project

The University of British Columbia via edX


In this project course, the final course in the Software Development MicroMasters program, you will learn how to input, manipulate, and return data with a modern web development stack. Using TypeScript and Node, you will manipulate large amounts of information using a domain-specific querying language. Backend, REST, and front-end technologies will be required to successfully complete the project.

In teams, students will work through the project in several sprints. In each sprint, students will produce a deliverable that is evaluated using an automated test suite. The feedback you will receive from this suite will be limited. To succeed at the project you will need to create your own private test suite to further validate each deliverable.

By working through such a large-scale development project, you will learn technical development skills, and gain experience with how teams develop software in the industry.

This is the largest project in the Software Development MicroMasters program. Verified learners will have access to greatly increased staff coaching to help complete the project.

    I am seriously disappointed with this course, it's lazy, unmaintained and downright horrible. I will say that all the other courses in this MicroMasters (where this program is the last course for), are amazing and extremely fun even. In the first…

    "Great access to coaching staff" === "A TA responding in 1/2 - 1 days with a response that's the equivalent of someone shrugging their shoulders. There has not been 1 student to complete this program. Why? BECAUSE THE CAPSTONE IS A GIGANTIC HORROR…

    I totally agree with the previous comments.

    It is not worth paying for all the micromasters to get to the final project and not be able to finish it.

    I just wanted to get the micromaster certification to improve my career, but today I abandon this program due to lack of help from the staff/documetation/achievable goals.

    I wish I had not bought the whole micromaster or had bought another one on another platform.

    I totally not recommended the Software Development MicroMasters® Program at UBC / edX.
