Basic Intro To Coding

Never Written Code? Not a Problem.

Learn the basics of coding in JavaScript, one of the most popular and useful languages on the planet. All of our courses let you write code directly in your web browser. We believe learning to code should be convenient. No more skipping around through video lessons and setting up proprietary software on your computer

Learn Javascript.

Code in the Browser.

The majority of open developer jobs are JavaScript opportunities. JavaScript uses simple syntax that will prepare you  for more courses and opportunities that will advance your career. This flagship introduction course is 100% JavaScript.

Coding is essential for everyone as more of the high paying jobs each year require technical skills.

  • There are more coding jobs than there are developers in the workforce
  • Most programming jobs don’t require a formal college degree
  • Developers and are better paid than most graduates in other fields of study
  • Many developers have remote work options

The best investment you can make is in yourself
