Mission Statement

DevPSU’s mission is to teach the core competencies of software development and introduce current relevant technological topics for valuable learning experiences and interactions outside of the classroom in preparation for a career in the industry or research.

DevPSU Learning

DevPSU Learning is an 10 week learning program intended to teach core competencies of collaborative software development in a peer-driven environment. Students get the opportunity to gain valuable experience and interactions outside of the classroom.

You can jump into the program at any point in the semester. Basic prior programming experience is expected. Just show up!

Here are the details of our first meeting of the Spring 2020 Semester:
Where: Virtually via Zoom
When: TBD

After completion of DevPSU Learning, students continue on to DevPSU Startup where they create and implement software programs and systems in small, collaborative teams.

DevPSU Startup

DevPSU Startup is a flexible program at Penn State University where students work in teams on a computer science problem, in exchange for experience or compensation. Upon completion of the program, students will be able to present their work at the DevPSU Summit.

Software Engineer:
Bring project ideas to life with your coding prowess. You’ll work on technical aspects of the project – code, testing, packaging, and more!

Product Manager:
Be the conductor of the show and make sure everything goes perfectly as planned. If you also have your own idea, this is the chance to lead a team that will help you translate your dreams into reality!

Work in a team of people you know on a project you select. By popular demand, we are now allowing you to formulate your own teams and work within our Startup program!
