Module coordinator recommendation

When I started my programming adventure, it seemed to me that the most important thing was writing code. However, when time passed and I gained more professional experience, I realized the difference between coding and software development, and the challenges coming with the second one.

By choosing the IT Project Management module, you will learn not merely how to code, but everything needed to succeed in the final effect, i.e. creating useful software and having satisfied customers.

I recommend this module to those who like to take responsibility. Responsibility not for the fragment, but the whole. Responsibility for the project, for people, and the team.
