Air Force Global Strike Command (AFGSC) has developed the Striker Airmen Coder (SAC) program as an effort to develop Air Force coders who are able to create innovative and efficient technical solutions in their local units. AFGSC has opened the program to local higher education institutions in order to allow undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to gain real world experience in web and mobile app development.
This independent study is geared to work alongside Airmen to develop solutions to AFGSC software needs. Students will be directed by Ruby Shore Software’s senior developers for the duration of the program. The program will start at the end of August 2021, and last for three months. The deadline for applications is July 1, 2021.
