Gain the Confidence to Hire, Manage and Speak with Developers

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!

I'll explain Front-end and Back-end, what UX is (and why your project needs it), and why you keep sending strange math equations to that JavaScript function thingy. By the end of the class, you’ll learn to read code, you’ll create three web projects from scratch (seriously!)… and instead of swearing at your developers, you might end up becoming one yourself.

Is this course for you?

Programming for Non-Programmers is One Month's course for students who want to gain a basic understanding of coding before they get into learning an actual programming language. If you are someone who wants to think like a developer (without having to become a developer) then this is the perfect course for you.

Course Includes:

  • 5+ hours of step-by-step video tutorials  
  • By the end of this course, you'll know how to talk confidently with developers.

Week 1: The Web Development Process
Journey To The Center Of The Problem

Programming is about solving problems. But before you can find a solution, you have to first fully understand the problem. In this lesson, we discuss ways in which you can work through your ideas, get to the bottom of the exact problem you are trying to solve, formulate a solution and start working on it. You will get pointers that will help you get your ideas from your head onto a computer as well as how to communicate them to others involved in the problem-solving process like developers and designers.

Solve For A Sandwich

In this lesson, we cover an example of how programming works in the real world. Spoiler: it involves hunger and peanut butter.

Zen and The Art of Knowing Who to Hire

In the late 1990s, when you wanted a web presence, there was only one person to hire: The Webmaster. Since then, this role has shaped and evolved into front-end, back-end, UX, DevOps, and a whole list of players. In this lesson, you'll get an overview of different Web development roles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is a One Month Coding Bootcamp?

A. Our bootcamps are 100% online, so you can participate from anywhere in the world. You will be given access to course video lessons throughout the month, which is where you'll first learn the material.

Q. How much time will I need to commit?

A. Our bootcamps require around 2-4 hours per week (depending on how fast you go). That time will be spent watching video lessons and completing homework that is given to you throughout the course.

Q. How is One Month different from other learning platforms?

We've learned from our past students that you're 78% more likely to complete a bootcamp successfully if you're working with other people. Our online bootcamps offer a premium level of interactivity with your instructor as well as other students so you'll never feel alone on your learning journey.

Q. Are One Month bootcamps worth my time and money?

A. If you want to take an intensive 8-10 week in-person course that costs thousands of dollars, then One Month isn't for you. But, if you're looking for a fast-paced intro to a computer programming language that is taught in a fun, fast and effective way at a fraction of the price and on your own schedule, you're in the right place.
