LaunchCode's Discovery

About the course

Course help site: https://help.launchcode.org/

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. Be aware that this course's features (especially the coding practices) work best on a desktop or laptop, and may not work on some mobile devices. 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.

This course helped me greatly in the beginning of learning how to code. It was a great a refresher on some of the topics that were a little fuzzy from high school and college. Some of the lessons do get a little difficult but the help site is always there when I get lost or need something explained further. Launch code also does a great job linking other places where you can go to learn more on the topics. It was really helpful on some them. I would definitely recommend this course to any considering making the jump into coding career. It serves as a good sample of what it is all about.

The stepik site is easy to navigate and very user friendly. I appreciate the links to various articles and resources as well as the access to replit. I have found an interest for coding that I never would have thought existed and I look forward to honing this craft. I am forever grateful to this program for introducing me to this whole new world!
