This was a fantastic course.
We covered key coding fundamentals that helped me build an understanding of programming. There are great instructors that are more than willing to give you 1 on 1 time to work through problems.

Took an online course and learned a lot during the whole program. I recommend it for anyone whos trying to dip their toes into computer programming.
This course is by no means a walk in the park. It is challenging enough that you need to dedicate time towards homework and reviewing past content to grasp core concepts as classes build on top of each other.

I found all the teachers extremely approachable and never hesitated to talk about conceptual roadblocks I faced along the way. The team at First Step Coding is dedicated to help you learn. That is not only their motto on paper—it’s evident in their attitude toward every student.
I strongly recommend the online learning platform, as well. Not only does it allow you to attend classes after a long day of work, it also offers access to recorded classes that you can revisit to brush up questions/concepts that require a deeper understanding.
The accountability aspect of the course helps drive confidence in students, who are pushed to tackle 5-10 questions on new concepts learnt on a weekly basis. By the end of the course, students like me start feeling more confident about the distance travelled. I am now in the process of applying to reputed bootcamps in New York City based on my training with First Step BootCamp Prep!

An intense online search for coding classes led me to First Step Coding and I am so happy I found it. Although self learning is great ( and very important in this field), First Step Coding is the right place to start and get a good coding foundation.
My instructors were Riley and Kurt; they were both very nice, helpful,professional, extremely patient and always available to answers questions. The curriculum is indeed adapted for people with no coding experience and by the end of the program, you acquire a great amount of skills and knowledge.
I finished the program in July and just got accepted into a bootcamp here in Boston. I would recommend this school to anyone new to coding; go for it, you will not regret it!

Fast-paced but recorded lectures easy to follow. Assessments are fair and helpful. Instructors were patient and took time to explain topics well. Final project was fun. Good experience to see if you’re ready for a Bootcamp. Would have been nice to have a few more classes vs independent study at the end of the course. Overall a good experience and I certainly know a great deal more than when I started. Thanks!

I’ve worked in SaaS tech support for a few years, and have slowly been introduced to code various concepts by virtue of doing my job. Over the years I’ve built a pretty broad understanding of various code concepts, but I couldn’t tell you much about the basics ( like the difference between an object and an array).
One thing I loved about the class was, while zero coding experience is required, the learning environment is flexible/challenging enough that if you’ve already had some experience with certain aspects of the lesson, you can push yourself and still find a ton of value in the coursework (plus you have a knowledgeable instructor to ask questions and work with during office hours).
In parting, I wrote a program to illustrate my experience with the course:

I went in with zero coding experience.
I’ve always known my way around a computer, I’ve been poking them since I was a seven year old after all, and while that might be normal now it wasn’t back in ’99. I’ve even messed around a command prompt(following guides to the letter), but I could never code. I’d seen code blocks all throughout my life and to the untrained eye, they honestly look like word vomit. They did to me anyway.
All of this is to say that, now, the word vomit looks like a recipe. Even if I don’t understand a block of code in its entirety, I can safely navigate it piece by piece to understand what’s going on at every point(and if I don’t understand I know how to look up resources to help me understand). That’s not something everyone can say and I can thank First Step Coding for helping me by demystify coding. While I wanted to learn how to code, my primary reason for applying to First Step Coding was to find out if I had it in me. I wanted to know if coding was something I could sit down and understand. Well, now I know I can understand it if I put my mind to it and I’ve actually found myself enjoying it, errors and all. My instructors were very helpful, patient and polite and they explained the core concepts of coding that helped me build to the more complex ones. I still have a long way to go, but I’m confident now that it’s something I can and want to do.
