Are you a creative or entrepreneur that wishes you could speak tech with your web development team? Maybe you wish you could code a bit yourself? 

Programming for Non-Programmers is online course designed to help non-programmers communicate more efficiently with developers. 

Because leading a development team (without being a developer yourself) can sometimes feels like “talking about dancing”, I've created an interactive and easy to follow environment in which to learn the basics. 

And for developers just getting started, think of this as the primer to help kickstart your career. 

If you're running a tech start-up, it's essential that you familiarize yourself with the fundamentals of web development. Ultimately knowing how to "talk to the talk" will help you communicate better with developers, and overall just look really cool. 

What You'll Learn  

In this course we'll tackle some development principles to get you on the right path. We'll look at questions like, "Front-end vs. Back-end?", "Is UX necessary for my project?", "What is this Javascript function thingy, and why am I passing it strange math equations to it?". 

  • What coding languages should I use for my next project?

  • Which CMS is right for the job?

  • What are the stages of web development?

  • What deliverables do I need to provide my developer? (FYI - This is important and often neglected or done poorly)

  • Reading code & basic developing principles to get us started

  • Key concepts of programming that are the found in every programming language

  • Understanding Javascript Variables & Logic
