Students learn software development skills at C Spire Developer Dawgs Camp

The Center for Cyber Education at Mississippi State University hosted the C Spire Developer Dawgs Camp July 12-15, 2021.

The camp offered 31 students from across Mississippi the opportunity to work with industry professionals to acquire information and skills in software development. During the three-day residential program, students stayed on MSU’s campus and attended immersive educational sessions at the Mill Conference Center.

Industry professionals from C Spire, FedEx, US Army Corp of Engineers, CoreLogic, nSPARC and Basecamp Coding Academy helped students learn about the software development life cycle, guiding them through mock interviews and providing feedback on final presentations. Additionally, Mississippi State University’s Dr. Cindy Bethel and Dr. Tanmay Bhowmik shared information regarding their work and degree areas in computer science.
