Curious about coding? Want to learn to speak geek? Don’t be overwhelmed — this beginner course is the perfect introduction to web development and programming. In this course, we'll tackle basic development principles to get you started on the right path. No experience is necessary!
Are you a creative or entrepreneur that wishes you could speak tech with your web development team? Are you frustrated that you can’t make the projects happen yourself? Maybe you wish you could even code a bit?
This special edition of Programming for Non-Programmers is a real-time Premium Course for beginners. Designed to help people with non-technical backgrounds, this computer programming course will help you communicate more efficiently with developers.
When you’re leading a development team without being a developer yourself, it can sometimes feel like “talking about dancing.” After teaching myself programming and becoming a programmer myself, I realized that there was a big gap in what people thought we did — and what actually happens. It frustrated me, because so much business communication can be improved with a basic primer in coding and web development principles.
I went on to teach this course at the New York Stock Exchange, General Electric, Donors Choose, and Columbia University. I’ve been a web developer and UX designer for more than 12 years and I’ve developed sites for The Black Eyed Peas, Toyota, and American Express.
If you want to compete in today’s economy, you’ll need to know the basics of programming and the basics of business. This course will teach you exactly what you need to know in just 4 weeks.
In this class, I've created an interactive and easy to follow environment for anyone's first introduction to programming. You can start at any level (even super-beginner), and I’ll walk you through how everything works and fits together.
If you work with developers, it's essential that you familiarize yourself with the fundamentals of web development. By taking the time to learn the programming basics, you will know how to "talk to the talk" will help you communicate better with developers, and overall just look really cool.
And for developers just getting started, think of this as the primer to help kickstart your career. This is where you begin. This is how it all starts. This is how it all maps together.
In addition to the course itself (part of which is available as a self-guided program within One Month’s library of courses), we’re also adding two all-new challenge projects, several new case studies, and a bonus web design project for you to create your own web project by the end of the course.
Well, I’ll be hosting weekly office hours every week throughout the course and we’ll have a private Slack channel for students to reach out to me throughout the entirety of the course. I’ll be available to answer questions, review projects, give you feedback, and help you through all of the material. You’ll meet 50 other passionate and curious entrepreneurs, professionals, and students who are learning at the same time you are.
Our first premium course was a huge hit with One Month: Startup, and people have been asking us for more. Here it is: our next premium course is starting very soon, and we can’t wait to see you in the course.
So what are you waiting for? Your life could change in the next month.
Start programming today.
PS: Here’s a secret I’ve learned: as an artist and a musician, coding can be quite beautiful and fun. As you dig in, it also starts to make sense. It’s hard at first, and then it becomes more and more artistic. You might even find yourself enjoying it.
Learn exactly what you need to do next. This One Month course is your treasure map to understanding the web development process. The commitment will take approximately two hours each week with a combination of video lectures, project work and live classroom discussion in Slack.
What Makes A Premium Course Different Than A Typical One Month Course?
This premium course adds a new level of interactivity to our popular on-demand video lessons. You'll be guided through the course over a one month period by the instructor and you'll be learning along with up to 100 other students simultaneously. You'll be invited to join a private Slack chat room where you'll interact daily with your fellow learners, your instructor and the One Month team. You'll receive direct feedback on your projects and you'll get real-time troubleshooting help from our team. By the end of this 30-day course, you'll feel confident enough in your coding literacy that you'll be able to intelligently hire and communicate with developers... and perhaps you'll be curious enough to want to continue learning a new programming language!
Who Is This Course For?
This course is for complete beginners, people curious about programming, people who don't know where to start, people who want a kick in the pants to get going, business owners who need to hire great developers, and aspiring programmers who want to become coders.
Who Is This Course NOT For?
If you’re a developer with 2+ years experience, you’ll be too advanced for this course. If you've already taken Chris' online self-guided "Programming For Non Programmers," and feel like you've mastered the material, then much of this course will be very familiar.
Is This Different From PFNP?
Think of this as PFNP Plus! We've streamlined the course down to the core principles, and added new content that goes in deeper on communicating with developers and making sure you get the right team for your company. In addition, there are two entirely new projects to help you apply the concepts covered in this course in real-world examples that you can take right into your next project. These projects will be reviewed by Chris during the course.
What If I Need To Cancel?
If your plans change before the course starts, just let us know and we'll give you a full refund. But, once the course begins, will be no cancellations allowed.
What If I Complete the Course and Don't Like It?
This course comes with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you complete the course and all of the assignments and feel like you didn't learn what was promised, then let us know and we'll refund your enrollment fee. Yep, we're that confident in our courses! (Fun fact: Less than .01% of One Month students have asked for this refund. We have a feeling you'll enjoy this course.)
