Syllabus

  • Intro to Web Development
    • In this course you'll learn how to make basic web pages using HyperText Markup Language (HTML) and how to add style to your pages with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). At the end of the course, you'll demonstrate your new skills by completing a project in which you create a web page that replicates a given design.
  • Intro to Programming with Python I
    • Learn basic programming with Python, one of the most versatile and widely used programming languages! You'll first learn core programming concepts and fundamental Python syntax by writing code to make a virtual "turtle" robot draw colorful shapes on the screen. You'll then learn how to write Python functions, run Python from a Command-Line Interface (CLI), manipulate strings and lists, and refactor your code to improve its structure and make it more modular.
  • Intro to Programming with Python II
    • Advance your skills as a beginning programmer with Python—one of the most versatile and widely used programming languages! In this course, you will build on your understanding of fundamental Python and learn some more advanced skills, including how to work with files on your computer's disk, how to retrieve data using a web API, and how to use Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) to create your own classes, objects, and methods.
  • Intro to JavaScript
    • Learn the fundamentals of web programming using JavaScript, the ubiquitous language for creating dynamic web applications.

    This Intro to Programming starts with HTML, followed by CSS, then Python and finally JavaScript. I breezed through parts 1-3, partly because I did some programming 30 years ago and not all of the axons had shriveled up. And then came JavaScript. I came...

    This is my first course in the field of tech and IT and it's been so educative and innovative, I love it. Udacity made it easy to understand and to learn. I've gained so much within the short time of my learning. The classes are interactive and interesting examples are used throughout the course.

    I can totally recommend this course and platform to anybody that would want to start his tech career anytime.

    The tutors introduced the topics and concepts in ways that help you enjoy and understand them. Programming can be quite difficult, but with the simplistic and examplified nature of this lecture series anyone that takes it will enjoy it and ultimately gain foundational knowledge that will help build their overall idea of the idea behind it.

    Thank you Udacity, so far it has been an awesome ride!

    Personally I've attended a few Bootcamps to learn how to code but none of them has been able to help help me see the real view of how the codes actually work like I've been shown by this course on udacity.com. The experience has been superb and exciting. I just can't wait to complete further projects and make progress with this amazing learning environment.

    The program is surprisingly easy to follow. I love how it offers short content with quizzes and direct application right away. I can always ask questions in the dialogue box or look up answers in the resources that the program offers. Also, it's pretty easy to navigate within the program as well as keep track of my consistency & progression.

    I'm very excited about this project because I worked really hard on it.

    While working on it I really felt my neurons performing at maximun capacity.

    I have discovered that programming is very interesting, that's why I'm looking forward to complete the next lessons.

    "From the very beginning when I took the first class, I knew this was and would be an experience of a lifetime. from every class and now my first project, I just know I am growing and improving daily which is majorly down to the world class tutors available. Thanks so much Udacity and Access bank."

    It's going well and the videos explain contexts well. I know it's impossible to add everything I'm to know as videos, but maybe some other core concepts could be added and explained. I'm loving the experience and hope this would be the push I need to become a working developer

    This is my first Udacity course but I am so happy with it, I feel like I've learned a lot and that the pace is the right one for me. It is slowly but surely getting harder so I am a bit nervous of what's to come but I am really happy so far!

    The program is going well, and definitely supersedes my expectations. This is the first time I'm interacting with programming/codes and the teaching is very explanatory. The videos are helpful and the practice/exercises help alot.

    So far I have enjoyed the program very much. They have given me just enough info to learn the material but still challenge me to find more. I cant wait to see how the rest of the program goes.

    The theoretical knowledge has been thorough and awesome! And a proper code review gives a taste of real-life work experience during the project submission and grading.
  • It's going really great, I love the flexibility, how I am able to learn at my own pace and the tutors are very good at explaining the concept. Great work and kudos.
