As we've said before, we want to educate the whole engineer and not just produce code monkeys. That means giving you the context to understand where your work fits in a larger product development lifecycle and the tools so you can participate in the other phases yourself. We hope that learning about UX, design and wireframing was helpful in that pursuit.
You've now completed two of the three prep mini-courses. At this point, you should have a good understanding of the profession of web development and how the design phase of the development process works. In the next two mini-courses, we'll be zeroing in on how the production phase of a project comes together.
In the next mini-course, called Software Engineering, you'll learn how to break down a large project into manageable pieces and the workflows used by professional developers. You'll also learn how to use whiteboarding and "pseudocode" to solve a problem before you ever begin tackling it with traditional code.
Regardless of your ultimate goal, the next mini-course should make you roll up your sleeves a bit more and turn on your brain for some real engineering problem solving... are you excited??
