Here you will get some course that you should complete during your Software Engineering. This list is prepared initially for my To do List to be completed with in the Software Engineering. Some of them are completed and some of them are not. But this list is still growing, yet here I will include some basics you should complete to be a Engineer not just a certificate holder :). Here are links to some free resource through which you will learn intermediate level of understanding on that topics. From there you could master it if you want to. So here is our Courses to Complete During Software Engineering
For whom and when
This list gonna help to everyone who are in Information technology fields. All the students of Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Information Technology, Software Engineering and all other. You need no previous knowledge to get started with these course. However these course would be a beginning basics for other courses and topics out there. You can learn these topic on your free time, You need not to focus all day in these courses. There courses are made to be read on readers own time. However being continuous would help you to achieve the most of it. I suggest for the students of Bachelor of Software Engineering to complete this course during their engineering, whereas First two should be completed with in the first year :).

Git is a version control system. It was developed on April 2005, During the development of Linux Kernel. Let’s first discuss about version control. Version control is a practice in which every change in code are tracked and logged in such a way that we can go back to any previous stage (Previous Version) whenever necessary.

You need to perform some projects on every competition of every section. Which helps you to use your knowledge in the required field. And you know what you can do too :). Here is our article on Free Code Camp Learn Coding. As you already learn about git and github in above course. You can sign up on Free Code Camp using your git account. Here is the link https://www.freecodecamp.org.
Introduction to Linux
Get started with the most powerful operating system in the world. In this course you will learn Linux from beginning. You need no previous knowledge in any special field.
