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 basics of JavaScript! You will learn how to create and use the primary data types in JavaScript and use conditionals and loops to control the flow of your JavaScript code. You'll write your first JavaScript functions and learn how to use arrays and objects to store collections of data. By the end of the course, you will use your new JavaScript knowledge to build the core functionality of an eCommerce shopping cart.

    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...

    It has been a great learning experience. The video illustrations and detailed explanations have been of great help. I recommend this program for anyone willing to develop their technical skills. The program has matched my expectation of understanding basic html elements and semantic tags as well as the rudiments of CSS. There's still so much more to learn. I look forward to gaining much more. Cheers.

    You will know that the facilitators have people who are new to programming in mind when they're teaching. Every topic is well explained with practical examples. The practice after each topic is fun to follow and solidifies retention. I am really enjoying my time of study here in Udacity!

    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.

    So far so good! Learning a lot, and I like the way they have you trying out bits of code often, it helps re-enforce what you've learned and gets you familiar with the syntax and helps solidify larger concepts. I have prior experience with HTML, so that part was more of a review for me, but I had no experience with CSS, and now I feel like I know both equally well!

    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.
