Have you ever said to yourself: "I'd like to learn to code, but where should I start?”
There are an overwhelming number of options that are available to those who want to learn. Introduction to Programming is designed to give you the foundational skills that will prove important for any type of programming you want to do. You’ll learn to code web pages, create a mobile application and use external data sources. (Mobile covered in Level II of the course)
This course, which includes video lectures, lab exercises, and full program code will prepare your for entry level jobs in development— or simply make you comfortable with code and confident in more advanced study.
As you build a portfolio of skills, you’ll also build a portfolio of completed projects that can be used to demonstrate your new skill sets.
In Level I of the course we focus on foundations-- The things that all developers need to know to be successful. With each passing chapter of the course you'll learn new skills and demonstrate them in a lab exercise.
This program will introduce participants to all of the following technologies:
We Created Introduction to Programming For You
If you've been considering learning to code-- or have tried before and it didn't quite take-- then this course is for you. We're not teaching a random programming language, but, instead, laying a professional foundation with the skills today's programmers need to know.
A mix of lecture and activity, this course is designed not just to expose you to important topics for new coders, but to help you retain the information and immediately put it to use.
Comprehensive and Efficient
Introduction to Programming is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to the programming field. However, we know you're busy and don't spend time on unnecessary theory and background. You'll complete the course in just a few weeks worth of evenings-- however the lessons will stay with you through out your programming career.
Over 500,000 Students LearnToProgram
You'll be among our community of over 500,000 students who've learned programming from one of our LearnToProgram courses. With over 250,000 students on Udemy alone, we've learned a few things about teaching people-- And those lessons are injected in to Introduction to Programming.
We're looking forward to seeing you in class!
Mark Lassoff's parents frequently claim that he was born to be a programmer. In the mid-eighties, when the neighborhood kids were outside playing kickball and throwing snowballs, Mark was hard at work on his Commodore 64 writing games in the BASIC programming language. Computers and programming continued to be a strong interest in college where Mark majored in Communications and Computer Science. After completing his college career, Mark worked in the software and web development departments at several large corporations.
In 2001, on a whim, while his contemporaries were conquering the dot com world, Mark accepted a position training programmers in a technical training center in Austin, Texas. It was there that Mark fell in love with teaching programming, which has been his passion ever since. Today Mark is a top technical trainer, traveling the country providing training for software and web developers. Mark's training clients include the Department of Defense, Lockheed Martin, Discover Card Services, and Kaiser Permanente. He has consulted for companies such as Dell, Target, Lockheed Martin, and government agencies including the US House of Representatives. In addition to traditional classroom training and consulting, Mark releases video tutorial training for aspiring programmers on his website, www.LearnToProgram.tv and Udemy.com.
He lives in coastal Connecticut near the Connecticut River, where he is in the process of redecorating his house. Want to help?
