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

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.
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.
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.
