Announcing a “(Very) Basic Intro to Coding”

Qvault Classroom – our new gamified learning platform – just launched its first free coding course! This one is short, sweet, and to the point. We created a thirty-exercise, two-module course that caters to students who have never seen a single line of code before. That’s right, this is a code-in-the-browser course for absolute beginners.

What is Taught?

12433210

The course is made of 80% code completion exercises and 20% multiple-choice questions.

Some of the concepts covered include:

  • Variables
  • Printing
  • Mathematical Operations
  • Loops

We use JavaScript throughout the course for two reasons:

  • JavaScript is an interpreted, dynamically typed language. This means we can leave some of the lower-level details for later courses and focus on more interesting concepts immediately.
  • JavaScript is extremely popular and one of the most-used programming languages. JavaScript tends to be a language that junior developers are able to find a job using quickly.

What’s Next?

One of the next courses in our pipeline is a direct sequel to “(Very) Basic Intro to Coding“. We need to cover other core coding concepts like:

What If I’m Not a Beginner?

That’s perfect! “(Very) Basic Intro to Coding” isn’t truly the only free course on Qvault Classroom. When you sign up in the app, you now get 250 free gems, and those gems can be spent on any course or certificate! Coincidentally, “(Very) Basic Intro to Coding” is currently the only course that costs exactly 250 gems, but we are adding new courses all the time!
