Over our five years of teaching students at all skill levels, we’ve perfected turning a novice coder into a professional web developer.
Of course, you need to think like a coder, work hard, and devote hundreds of immersive hours to mastering your craft. But still, we’ve tuned our program to be truly transformative; you don’t need prior experience to be successful.
However, we get questions every week from prospective students:
“How do I tinker with the basics of web programming, just to see if this career is right for me?”
The problem is most tutorials available online are poorly taught. Even some of the most popular “learn to code” websites deliver more confusion than clarity.
We encounter prospective students every week who doubt their own skills because they’ve been trying to learn from bad teachers, not because “coding is too hard” or they are not smart enough.
None of the individual resources are perfect - but each one will help you with a specific step in your learning process.

Step 3: Publish a Free Website
Weakness: Creating the website involves learning 3 tools at once, and it is easy to become overwhelmed.
These tutorials are a great start, but there's still a gap you need to close to become a professional. If you want to take the next step learn how to be a professional software developer, apply for an upcoming class.
