Rococo Class – Bridging the Skill Gap

It started out as an idea of eventually making Filipino software engineers at par with Japan’s and bridging the gap between university and industry with regards to skills. Thus RGTC is offering its Rococo Class once again, together with its university partners–University of San Carlos (USC) and Cebu Institute of Technology-University(CIT-U). The class is now operating in its third school year, which started last 2013. Equipping students with necessary skills to survive the real IT world, our own team of software engineers–Web and Cloud Development experts–served as instructors.

What Will Students Learn?

The whole class covers all stages in a system development life cycle–from analysis, design, implementation, and testing. The following technologies both from the client and server sides, are taught:

  • Git – Version control system designed to record changes to a file or set of files over time. Tracks the changes to codes and documents.
  • HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) – Mark-up language used to create the elements and define the content of a webpage.
  • CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) – Style sheet language used to describe how HTML elements are going to be displayed on a webpage.
  • JavaScript – Lightweight programming language integrated with HTML in order to program the behavior of web page and its elements.
  • AngularJS– Structural framework designed to extend HTML in order to create dynamic webpages.
  • AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) – Client-side script that communicates to and from a server/database without the need for a postback or a complete webpage refresh.
  • Google Datastore – NoSQL document database built for automatic scaling, high performance, and ease of application development. It can be accessed from the cloud.
  • Slim3 Framework – Full-stack MVC framework optimized for Google App Engine. It can be used as a datastore framework, making access to Google Datastore easier.
  • As a Result

    At the end of the class, everybody will be ready to take on any project once hired. Because of the training they underwent during Rococo class, they perform well in their career and requires minimal supervision from senior developers. These employees performed well in their career. RGTC selects the top-performing students to have an interview and eventually land a job under RGTC.

    Rococo Class Testimonials

    “The Rococo class allowed me to learn new technologies. It was not the usual class compared to those that I have encountered during my college years. It was a bit different since it trained us to be ready the moment we enter the IT industry. I learned a lot of things from learning the technologies to engaging with a team. I am so thankful to Rococo for that.” – Jacquelyn Amaya- Rococo Class Alumna, RGTC Employee.

    “Rococo class exposed me to the industry-standard way of doing things. They presented a beginner-friendly way of solving a real-world problem that surely helped me understand how things are going in the IT industry.” – Miguel Victor Remulta- Rococo Class Alumnus, RGTC Employee.
