The Aptera Academy
Skills and Practices for Modern, Team-Based App Development
Do you need to scale your team without slowing the pace of delivery? As an Aptera client, your team members will also have access to the Aptera Academy, our unique onboarding program. In the Academy, you’ll join our new hires of all experience levels in learning the hard and soft skills needed on a high-performing delivery team. The curriculum includes agile theory, team dynamics, and technical skills, including coding practices, UX design, and quality assurance.
Plus, while there will be an impact to the pace of production work, your team won’t have to stop the project they are working on completely.
Customize Your Academy Experience
The Aptera Academy is not a one-size-fits-all program. The Academy is structured into small groups of people, called cohorts, who move through the program together. Clients who wish to send several team members to the Academy can create their own dedicated cohort.
Learning is done in two phases: alignment and apprenticeship. Alignment is focused learning time to study, discuss, and engage with curriculum lessons and challenges. Apprenticeship is where you join a high-performing team and, under mentorship, put your skills into practice. Cohorts can choose to do these phases one after the other, or simultaneously to keep production work on track.
Full Delivery Team Learning Opportunities
Getting a modern application successfully to market means you’ll have to think about more than just functionality. That’s why the Aptera Academy curriculum covers more than just clean coding practices and really focuses on team dynamics, agile principles, and DevOps practices.
A key to successful teams is having a shared understanding among its members. To ensure your entire delivery team can see the big picture, we’ve opened the Academy to all roles including software engineers, business analysts, quality engineers, and UX strategists.
