Learn to Code by Making Things
The best way to learn is by doing. In this course, you'll quickly learn to code by making ten small applications.
How you'll learn
Learn the tried-and-tested way
The best developers learnt by making lots of little things and picking up the theory as they went. This is exactly how you'll learn.
Think for yourself
We'll teach you how to get to the bottom of the issues, as and when you encounter them, and how to use Google to find solutions for yourself.
Never get stuck
We'll provide lots of hints. If you get stuck, we're just an email away so there's no need to give up when things get tricky.

"Getting started in programming can be a really intimidating experience, especially if you don't know how to apply what you're learning.
The lessons offered by the Make It With Code team do a great job of merging theory with practice and in making the whole experience seem both human and manageable."
- Grant Golland
"The first set of lessons revolve around Twitter's API. To this end, I wrote code which successfully grabbed the latest tweet from a specific user, searched for a phrase across the Twittersphere, and even posted my own tweet.
Did I learn how to actually do these things? No I didn't. What I learnt instead was where to find the information and documentation I needed to do these things - which I think is far more valuable."
- Daniel Hollands
