If you’ve ever considered having a career in programming/coding, but felt you lacked the knowledge or skills to launch your career, this might be what you’re looking for. This course bundle is aimed at absolute beginners who want to start a career in programming/coding or just develop their skills in this area. The course assumes you have no technical knowledge of programming/coding whatsoever. You’ll learn how to work with and write code for two of the most common programming/coding languages: Python and HTML. Scroll down to learn more about these languages.

Upon completion of this course, you’ll receive two Microsoft acclaim badges in beginner level coding that you can add to your CV or social media profile for prospective employers to see. You’ll also receive two official Microsoft certifications validating your programming/coding skills. Scroll further down the page to see an example of a Microsoft MTA certification.

What is an MTA?

The Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) certification is the starting point of the Microsoft certification path. It is the first level of certification a learner can gain from Microsoft. From here, a learner can progress onto more advanced Microsoft certifications such as the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA), Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE), and Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD).

Learn what code is and how it’s used in our daily lives.

What’s the difference between coding and programming?

The names are more or less interchangeable. Coding, as the word suggests, involves writing lines of code. A Programmer, on the other hand, writes lines of code AND performs other tasks like problem solving, critical thinking, and conceptualising. As software programs become more sophisticated from parking your car, to checking fraudulent activity on your bank account, coders are beginning to take on the responsibilities of programmers. So the lines between the two are becoming less visible.

What is Python?

Python is a programming language that was created in the early 1990s. Millions of people depend on Python to do things like run Instagram, and interact with apps like being able to click things on the screen. It also allows scientists to carry out complex things like test microchips and is used to build video games for mobile phones. Companies that use the Python programming language include Youtube, Facebook, Yahoo, NASA, and IBM.

  What is HTML5?
HTML5 is the standard programming language used to build websites. ‘HTML’ is the name of the language and the number ‘5’ represents the current version. HTML5 allows us to do such things as watch videos on websites without having to download other programs, like Adobe Flash. It also allows websites to display it’s content in a neat and tidy way. Among other things, HTML5 has allowed websites to become more sophisticated over the years. This has given us the ability to do more on the internet, like browse clothing online or watch a Netflix movie.

As part of this course, you’ll learn how to create your own Flappy Bird clone.
