LaunchCode's Hello Coding!

About the course

This course is designed to introduce you to computer programming and prepare you to have the basic knowledge you'll need to complete beginner coding classes, either through LaunchCode or on your own. If you are interested in pursuing a career in programming, or if you just want to understand what coding entails, then this will be a great introduction for you. If you are in one of LaunchCode's service areas, then this course will be a necessary preparation for our other coding classes like LC101, CodeCamp, and CoderGirl.

For all of the course's features to work, internet access is required. If instead of using a laptop or desktop computer you are working through this course on your phone or another small device, we recommend that you download the Stepik app from the Google Play store or from the Apple App Store. But be aware that this course's features (especially the coding practices) work best on a desktop or laptop.
