60%+ of people who try to learn how to program end up quitting.
Is it because “programming just isn't for everyone“?
Or is it because only those with experience in hard sciences can learn it?
These are both untrue, as it is simply because most people don't have a basic comprehension of the technology they're going to use.
How exactly can you tackle responsive design if you don't now how a browser works?
How can you create a desktop application if you don't know what makes your computer freeze constantly (besides porn, of course)?
If you've ever taken your computer to a technician and told him “Make it work” or “I can't get it to work well. I'm going to cry” then you'll love this Pre-Programming: Everything you need to know before you code course.
It is expected that the United States will add over 2 million programming jobs by 2025. Jobs that will pay well over $100,000 a year. And that's just the United States (Merica').
If you want to learn how to code, you have to put down your bronze statue depicting Elon Musk standing on Mars, and start learning what you don't know about technology. No matter how little you personally become a “coding ninja,” coding ninjas in the future will thank you (and tell you to stop talking about them as coding ninjas).
About your instructor:
Hi, I'm Evan Kimbrell. I too struggled to learn the basics of programming. If failing to program were a sport, I'd be on the Dream Team.
Today, I run a web and mobile development agency called Sprintkick and over the last 4 years we've built and managed over 100+ web & mobile applications.
So, how is someone so technologically challenged able to pull it off? First, I would disagree that they were “technologically challenged” (come on), and second, it was actually straightforward. A concerted amount of time was required to learn what I needed to know about basic computer, web, and programming technology, as well as modern technology trends and advanced concepts.
This Pre-Programming: Everything you need to know before you code course is an accelerated path designed to get you to “I get it” and finally start communicating correctly & effectively about technology.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone interested in learning how to program that is already struggling or intimidated by the process
- Anyone who wants to better communicate with development teams they work with
- Anyone who wants to hire, vet, & manage developers more effectively
- Anyone who is simply interested in getting an in depth understanding of modern web & mobile technology trends
