About this course

I get it. You want to make your project happen. Meet the developer of your dreams. Take your business to skyrocketing heights. But you keep getting stuck on all things Tech and are hung up on computer programming basics. One Month Programming for Non-Programmers is an introduction to web development and programming for beginners. In this course, we'll tackle basic development principles to get you started on the right path. We'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, create three web projects from scratch… and instead of swearing at your developers, you might end up actually wanting to become a developer yourself.

What can this course do for you?

Learn how to speak with developers better so that you can better plan, budget, and execute your projects

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?

Programming for Non-Programmers is an online course on computer programming for beginners designed to help people with non-technical backgrounds 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.

When I first created Programming For Non-Programmers, the class took off and became a global best-seller. 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.

Learning how to code isn’t just for developers and geeks anymore. The future of business means we’ll all need to dip our toes in, and the smartest entrepreneurs, executives, and creatives are leaning in and teaching themselves these valuable skills.

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.

And 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.

So what are you waiting for? Your life could change in the next month.

How Do I Communicate My Ideas?

The main question we're asking in this class: How do I communicate an idea from my head to a computer? It takes more than just computer code to communicate your ideas. So in this lesson I'll give you some examples of how to communicate better with developers.
