Are you interested in programming, but don't know where to begin? If so, this course is your starting point. 'How to become a programmer' is a practical guide that teaches anyone what they need to know in order to become a successful programmer.
"How to become a programmer" was created with the complete beginner in mind. We were new to programming at one point in our lives too, and we remember how frustrated and confused we were when we first started. This course assumes that you have zero knowledge about programming, and we take the “complex" parts and break them down into smaller chunks that make it easier to absorb.
Perhaps you're working in a non-technical field, such as retail, construction, hospitality, etc., and you've heard about all the great benefits of working as a software developer. Maybe you've heard of the $85,000+ national average salaries (glassdoor, 2015) and the way tech companies treat their developers like royalty with awesome perks like unlimited drinks and snacks, catered lunches, free massages, etc.
Or perhaps you're the creative and entrepreneurial type and have an idea for the next great app, but don't know how to build it. You've probably realized how difficult and expensive it is to find and hire freelance developers.
Whatever your reason for learning, at Coder Vox we believe one thing is clear: coding is the new literacy. Being able to read and write computer code is only going to become more vital in a world that is dominated by laptops, smartphones, smartwatches, etc. The software industry is growing at an exponential rate, and many jobs may be requiring you to know how to read and write code in the future.
Here's the good news is this: it's never too late to start, and programming doesn't have to be difficult. In fact, it can be a fun and creative way to express your ideas, and building apps is one of the most powerful ways to reach a broad audience around the world.
At Coder Vox, we have a lot of experience teaching all types of people how to become proficient programmers. While everyone has different learning styles, we know there's one thing that every student can't get enough: tutorials that are clear, precise, and don't assume that you have any prior knowledge of the subject. This our goal, and we believe that with this course, you will come out with a very strong understanding of the foundations of programming.
Coder Vox is a team of professional software developers based out of Austin, TX who have a passion for teaching people how to program. Since Jan. 2014, we've been training complete beginners how to write their first line of code and have helped them land their first jobs as software developers.
Beginners who know absolutely nothing about programming. Seriously, we mean it. We are not just going to dive right into code from the start. Instead, we are actually going to go through in detail what programming is, what programming languages are popular, how to think like a programmer, and much more before we even touch a single line of code.
As long as you have a fairly current computer that is able to run a web browser, you will be fine.
Not anymore. We used to offer a highly successful 12 week bootcamp, but that has since been discontinued. If you are looking for more in-depth coursework, we recommend you check out Bloc. They have an excellent immersive online bootcamp for web and mobile development that you can do from anywhere in the world. Use coupon code CODERV100 to get $100 off your tuition cost.
