Introduction to Programming and Web Development

Apr 6, 2017 · San Francisco, United States of America

Calling all future coders! Do you want to learn to code, but not sure where to start?  

This prerequisite course is designed for students who have no prior coding/development experience.  If you are a complete beginner and want to find out more about computer programming and see if this is your cup of tea, join us for an introductory into learning the basics of programming. 

At the end of this course you will learn:

• What the internet is and a basic idea of how it works

• What a web server is and does

•  What an algorithm is

• How web pages are made and served

• Some tools/resources to begin self-study

With the completion of this intro course, you will be equipped to join our Learn to Code for Beginner's 4-Part Series starting on April 12.  That workshop series will give you a deeper dive into learning the basics of Ruby and JavaScript and how they work together to create fully functioning websites.  

Please note: You do not have to partake in the Learn to Code for Beginner's 4-Part Series after to take this intro course, this course is also available as a stand-alone workshop to give beginners a peek at programming.
