Why the Secure Code Warrior preventative ‘scaffolded’ approach to developer upskilling drives higher engagement and better educational outcomes for more secure code.
When it comes to extracurricular courses or on-the-job training, it's often overlooked that adults already have a certain level of experience and existing knowledge.
Good training is designed to add to this existing foundation and is structured in a way that allows for deeper understanding and faster autonomy in the learning process.
Scaffolded education is a potent, positive method of learning that seeks to activate and enhance the prior experience while continuing to build new skills - in manageable chunks - that allow developers to tackle increasingly difficult tasks with more confidence.
Secure Code Warrior’s unique scaffolded approach to developer-centric training using Courses (skill-based learning pathways) includes;
Learn security fundamentals and concepts with training videos [Tell]
Experience the impact of software vulnerabilities in immersive coding walkthroughs [Show]
Build transferable skills with hands-on, framework-specific coding challenges that level up skills in identifying, and fixing software flaws. [Learn]
Practice offensive secure coding skills with interactive missions, based upon real-world applications [Do]
This can be further extended to benchmark and assess competency by adding an Assessment end-of-course activity.
