Coding From Scratch

An Introduction To Programming

Online learning has many faces these days. You can watch a few videos, email back and forth with a mentor, read a book, etc. Our self-paced courses, like Coding From Scratch, are unlike any other online learning courses because we give you the flexibility to work on your own schedule but the attention you need to complete the course in a timely manner.

Completing Coding From Scratch gives you the fundamental building blocks necessary for starting any of our Full Stack camps.

So, if you virtually raise your hand with a question while you’re sitting on your couch in your living room, our counselors will quickly jump online to help you. Pretty cool.

Every lesson has numerous videos, a written lesson, and assignments that solidify the lesson by giving you a real example of how to use your new skills right after you learned it.


What Are You Going To Learn?

Units 1-3

In the first units, you will learn the basics of the Interactive Development Environment and how to build a basic website using HTML 5 and CSS 3.

Units 4-6

In these units, we go over the basic constructs of programming, including boolean expressions, logical constructs, loops, and DOM manipulation.

Units 7-8

These units bring together all of the skills that you have learned thus far using two very popular frameworks jQuery and Bootstrap. With these two libraries, you will be able to build beautiful, highly functional websites.

Your Developer Building Blocks

All of these units help prepare you for our Full Stack Camps. We want everyone to start the Full Stack Camps with these minimum skillsets so that everyone is on the same page from day 1.
