This course teaches the absolute beginner how to code. No prior coding experience is necessary! Learn everything you need to start coding your own simple programs from learning what a compiler is to learning how to make your own programs. There is no additional software needed for these videos, although for a more enhanced learning experience visit our website in order to take quizzes, complete coding exercises and even gain badges and points for levels. This course on Udemy will only contain videos. This course is structured to go from the basics of programming to building your own programs. You should take this course if you want to take the first step in learning how to code. We will break everything down for you, no need for additional compilers, books or teachers!

I am a Software Developer and the Lead Teacher at CodeStart. I have been programming for about 9 years and have my Bachelors degree in Computer Science. I am passionate about teaching people how to code and breaking down hard-to-learn concepts. I enjoy seeing students finally understand concepts in Computer Science and seeing what they go on to build.
