The best audience for this introduction to software development course is students who are thinking about making IT a career or non-technical professionals who work alongside coders, developers or programmers. There aren't many people who wouldn't be better at their job if they understood how programs are made and how development happens.
This introductory course is loosely associated with the IT Fundamentals+ certification from CompTIA. The material about software development and computer programming that you'll find on this course will help you pass the Software Development sections on the ITF+. But you don't need to be planning on taking that exam to benefit from this course.
If you're completely new to the IT career field, the IT Fundamentals+ certification from CompTIA is a good idea because it's designed to test your aptitude for careers in the IT world. If you're already established in IT, or you know it's where you want to head, you should consider earning the A+ instead.
You should take this introduction to software development because computers and computer programs run basically every part of our lives. After this course, you'll understand the basic logic that all applications and programs must follow, recognize the basic concepts of programming and development, and could even be ready to start pursuing a career in development.
