Do you want to learn to code in 2024, and start a developer career?
Or have you already started and feel lost because you don’t really understand what you’re coding?
Welcome to the most comprehensive Coding for Beginners course - Zero experience needed!
At the end of the course, you will become a developer. You will be able to create your own algorithms to solve any problem, and turn those algorithms into real code (Python, …).
If you have to take any coding course first, this is the ONE.
→ Why this coding course?
Coding can be quite hard when you get started. You have to learn so many things at the same time: coding logic, syntax, developer tools, frameworks, and much more.
Because of this, it’s easy to get lost. And I realized that many people start their coding journey not really knowing what to do. Then the questions appear: Should you start with a language such as Python or Java? Should you go with web development or mobile apps? Which code editing software is the best?
The truth is, those questions are not that important when you get started.
What’s important at the beginning is to make progress on the programming fundamentals.
With those fundamentals, everything else - for example programming languages - will be easier to learn. And you will be able to truly kick-start your developer career.
It’s not just about the syntax of a language. Let’s say you learn the Python language. Well, you might learn the syntax, but then, how does this teach you how to code? Coding is not about syntax, coding is about solving real problems.
That's why in this course, I focus on this problem-solving part. To give you the thinking tools you really need to become a great developer. Once you have this training, you can then expand on it to learn anything else.
Now, how to learn those fundamentals the right way? That’s where things get complicated. When searching on the Internet, I didn’t find a lot of resources talking about this in a clear way, without focusing so much on one particular language. And that’s why I’ve created this course, which is the one I wish I had when I got started.
→ How will you learn to code?
I’ve been a beginner myself, and I first learned the coding fundamentals. Today, I know this was the right way, although how it was taught in school was a bit boring.
From this experience, and after many years coding and teaching coding, I’ve come up with a simplified approach to code that is going to give you not only the fundamentals you need, but that is also fun, step by step, and project-based. You will build real applications right from the start.
In this course, I’m deconstructing programming by removing everything you don’t need at the beginning. I will teach you the very basics without any distraction. And then, little by little, we will add more things, until you reach a point when you can call yourself a developer.
The method I use is simple, but efficient:
WHY: Focus on the “why” first so you understand what you’re doing.
HANDS-ON lessons to learn in a better way.
STEP BY STEP: Every lesson is built on top of previous ones.
PRACTICE with many activities and projects.
NO COPY AND PASTE!!! I write all the code from scratch.
This teaching method actually works: I have already taught 57 000+ students in 150 countries, with 12 000+ reviews over 4.6/5.
And don’t take my word for it - here are some reviews from my students on Udemy:
“Simple and great course, learning while doing.” — Jose Almeida
“Halfway and still loving this course. The instructor is clear and teaches in such a way that you actually learn how to navigate, conceptualize, and write your own code rather than teaching from premade code.” — Westley Bolton
“Really happy with the course. Exactly what I paid for and am pretty happy with my progress. I am getting exactly what is promised. Edouard is an excellent teacher.” — Jihad Anbous
“Really step by step. It’s what I was needing. Extremely clear, with no blind spots in the lectures. Definitely worth it.” — Nicolas Hernandez
→ What will you do in the course?
You will first learn about the programming process - how to:
Define what problem you’re really trying to solve.
Create an algorithm to solve that problem.
Implement the algorithm with code (Scratch and Python).
Then we will apply this coding process in many activities and projects, step by step, while learning the coding fundamentals: variables, conditions, lists, loops, functions, libraries, etc.
For each coding fundamentals, you will get:
Real life analogy to explain the “why”.
Flowchart programming to create algorithms using this concept.
Block programming to start implementing the algorithm with code (in an easy way).
Text programming with Python (“real” programming).
An activity directly related to the concept you’ve just learned.
After each coding concept, you will create a complete project to build a real app, which will allow you to consolidate your knowledge by practicing on the new concept you’ve discovered, combined with all the previous concepts you’ve learned in the course.
→ Start to code Now!
So, do you want to finally become a developer and understand what you’re doing? Enroll in this course and start your programming journey TODAY!
After this course, you will feel much more confident when writing code. You will really understand the “why” behind what you’re doing, and also you will have a much better idea of what you can do next.
That’s not all: right from the start you will get the best practices I personally use when coding. My goal is not to make you become good, I want to make you become great at what you do.
You also get a 30 days money-back guarantee if you’re not fully satisfied. So just get started now, and if I don’t deliver on what I said, feel free to get the refund without having to justify yourself. No risk here, only a great opportunity to learn a life-changing skill.
See you in the course! :)
Who this course is for:
- Anyone starting a developer journey with no experience.
- New developers who are lost because they don’t really understand what they’re doing.
- Anyone a bit afraid of starting coding with text programming and who wants a more beginner-friendly way to get started.
Hi, I’m Edouard. I am a software engineer and robotics teacher.
I really enjoy teaching new technologies to people, and making complex stuff easy to understand. My method is simple, and contains only 3 words : Step By Step. I know how hard it can be to learn a new topic and just be lost in an ocean of information, without knowing what to do. In my courses, I make sure that you learn one step at a time, through practicing, and that you also learn the best practices.
I am passionate about robotics. I found that it’s amazing how many cool projects you can do with a robot, when you have the required programming knowledge!
I also co-founded a robotics startup in 2016, building a complete robotic arm, from scratch, with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Ubuntu and ROS. Thus, I am aware of things that work and things that don’t work, thanks to a lot of practice. This will save you precious time and make you progress faster.
Best-selling Udemy instructor Rob Percival wants to revolutionize the way people learn to code by making it simple, logical, fun and, above all, accessible. But as just one man, Rob couldn’t create all the courses his students - more than half a million of them - wanted.
That’s why Rob created Codestars. Together, the instructors that make up the Codestars team create courses on all the topics that students want to learn in the way that students want to learn them: courses that are well-structured, super interactive, and easy to understand. Codestars wants to make it as easy as possible for learners of all ages and levels to build functional websites and apps.
