More about this course

Have you ever said to yourself: "I'd like to learn programming, but where should I start?”  

There is 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 you 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.

Technologies

This program will introduce participants to all of the following technologies:

  • HTML5 and CSS: Construct the visual aspects of web sites and mobile applications with this language pair
  • Python: You’ll learn the basics of coding and programming logic using the Python programming language

In Level II of the course we'll look at mobile technologies,Javascript, jQuery and SQL.
