Starting with programming is hard, but there are steps you can take to reduce the stress when learning. Because everyone learns differently, it’s a good idea to try different methods to find one that works just right for you.
Not sure which language to start with? Take a quick quiz to find the right programming language for you.
Each app is divided into bite-sized lessons that you can complete in just a few minutes, perfect for learning whenever you have a spare moment.
You’ll be taken through the basis of whatever programming language you’ve learned — it’s important to note that these apps won’t get you ready to be a professional programmer, so you’ll need some more practice after finishing the course.
Every lesson gives you some information then asks you a question about it (usually multiple choice or typing your own code to complete a block) to be sure you understand it.
Any snippet of code you see in the apps can be run so you see its real output, and the apps also include a code playground where you can mess around and apply what you’ve learned to some real code.
