    Amazing Experience! Learning the basics of programming through the courses on introduction of web development has been a rewarding experience. IPND truly laid a strong foundation to the world of programming. The thing I found best about IPND is its focus...

    Probably the most important thing you leave this Nanodegree with is the ability to think like a programmer. You are able to solve problems in a structured and efficient manner. This skill is important in programming, as well as in other areas of life.

    The general positivity of the program’s instructors is also very noticeable and it is awesome. The company’s upbeat, welcoming learning environment is a major reason why I am sticking with Udacity as my main source of online education.
  • Awesome Introduction into the world of Coding
    Even though i have some coding background, it´s awesome how this course helps to better understand how programming actually works & how you can use it to solve problems.

    It never claims to be a job-readiness course, though. At the end, you´ll get a better understanding of which roles are important in the programming landscape (frontend/backend, android, data-analysts etc.).

    Excellent springboard!
    Having some experience prior to starting this Nanodegree was a boon to my success, that and the time I was able to devote. Overall it was a great experience . I was able to strengthen knowledge I already had while learning some new concepts throughout. The focus shifts periodically from front-end to back-end web and software development.
  • Absolutely Enjoyed the Journey
    I graduated with the Intro to programming nanodegree with 5 months. It was an awesome challenge for me coming from no computer science background. The program was very creative in its structure and the projects required. With that, I decided to enter a new nanodegree which I am taking now "Beginner iOS - Swift"

    A great foundation for programming
    Exposes you to both the front and back-end of programming. The lessons and projects were both interesting, and challenging enough to make you really learn the concepts and apply them.
