Knowledge should be free and accessible to anyone. The core course, that along with your own effort and determination will take you from novice to employable, will always be free of charge. This is our promise to you. We plan to launch a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo once enough people have registered their interest in order to fund some of the work required to build the course.
All in one place
There is no need to learn different skills from different books and online training sites. Even for seasoned professionals this is unnecessarily time consuming and not optimal. As a programmer you will learn to love optimization. We will start from scratch and go through all the technologies you will need to master web development. From basic HTML and CSS to advanced topics such as Ruby on Rails programming. Check out what you will learn.
Unlike many online courses, the ultimate goal of HowToCode.io is to make you employable. We have years of experience in hiring tech people and know what recruiters look for. After teaching you the tech skills you will need, we will also coach you in how to get your first job as a web developer. Read the faq to find out more.
Teaching gimmicks are nothing but that. You only end up learning how to use the gimmick. They actually get in the way of your learning. You will see no 'code directly in the browser' or 'learn <insert thing here> in 24 hours' on HowToCode.io. Real programmers use real tools. We will teach you where to find them, how to install them, and how use them. Guess what? They are free too. The most important person is you. It will require your time and your dedication. We will teach, motivate and inspire you. Why not take a look at the sample lesson to discover the course format and teaching style.
After learning a great foundation of web programming and design, you will learn to develop using the Ruby language and the Rails 4 framework. Both of which are fun and powerful technologies that are used by real programmers at real companies. (Twitter, Groupon and Shopify, to name a few). There are other options for developing web applications (Java, .NET, PHP...) but the market is currently thriving for good Rails developers. This is why we are focusing our core course blocks on this.
The HowToCode.IO team are all self-taught and have many years of professional experience. We have coached and trained other developers. We have designed a very clear course structure and development path. We want to make sure you are learning the right thing at the right time. We are putting a lot of time and effort into making sure that the lessons are both visually and mentally engaging. No boring guy talking to a whiteboard or muffled voice bashing away at a keyboard whilst you try to keep up. We can't learn like that, so we don't expect anyone else will either.
