I have a question (that I also will be asking my friend that is a Google mgmt level engineer that I will see next week):

*Is this free coding lesson advantageous to person that is not in the tech field?

*If the average person that is not in tech completes the free coding lessons, then what is the next step? Will they likely be able to create apps that they can potentially sell on iTunes? Will the lessons make job opportunities open up for them? Or is this program pretty much for people that are already in the STEM field?

Please advise.

Thanks!

ETA: I highly doubt these are for people already in the stem field. They seem to be for people who want to be web developers (so like websites, phone apps, and computer apps)

Copied from reddit:


I would personally recommend (if you are a beginner) to begin learning a single language on Treehouse (as it is focused on beginner learning) and then sign up at Code School and go through the courses on the same language. Code School is focused on the Intermediate-Experienced developer.

After you learn one language I would suggest doing the Git Courses at CS.

If you are just getting started I'd recommend learning HTML/CSS first as it is the most basic web language. Then Javascript/JQUERY, which is used on something like 97% of all websites. Then you can learn Ruby which is more advanced, but will get you a significantly higher paying job and you'll learn to do some pretty awesome things.

I've also read many success stories of individuals who have started with Codecademy and treehouse, then went on to use Code School. Ultimately if you want to be successful you need to practice continually and learn from many different sources.

|* I am an employee at Code School *|

Microsoft has a nice website with videos that teach you how to code.
They also have video training for their certs.
All the information is out there and free if you really want to learn.

As a black woman who's majoring in computer science, this would help me tremendously.

If you guys want to learn other form of coding, such as Java, Python, Ruby on Red, etc, there's also code academy.
